Doing one of the things we do best – or, at the least, pretty consistently – we have another diverse show for you. Jumping from detoxed Metalcore to Folky Melodic Death to Black Metal strangeness to Death-y Grindcore, we have perfect formula for the ADD diagnosed listeners who can’t…SQUIRREL.  We also may have another first in this episode during one of our reviews.  Curious which?  Well, there is an easy way to find out…

If you aren’t the kind of Metal-head who likes a little bit of everything, you are going to find yourself using chapter skip a lot this episode. However, since you are listening to this show, we would be inclined to assume you are that kind of Metal-head, in which case, we have you covered.  From hellish soundtracks to folkiness to progressive to pirates, we just happen to touch on about as many heavy music styles as we can within the span of an episode between out new album reviews and First Impressions.  It may get a little jarring…but you have been warned.

This past week saw new releases drop “like a ten ton hammer, son.”  There were so many, in fact, that not only can we not possibly cover all of them, but the ones we do are split onto this and next week’s episodes! We also talk about The Haunted’s future, give you a quick run through of some recently announced tours, a tangent about bands growing and staying fresh, and Kyle’s realization that there are some things you have to do as a grown-up that aren’t fun.
