When the Normal One Isn’t

The diversity of heavy music stylings is something we pride ourselves on with this podcast.  But sometimes we even surprise ourselves, like when a more “typical” album becomes the proverbial sore thumb of the week.  It’s not a bad thing in anyway, just something a little different.

It’s Coming Back Around Again

We have a little back of a throwback going on this week.  After staring in the mid-2000’s and dropping three albums, two of these bands have been absent for 6-7 years.  Another artist here got their start around the same time, but they never left, riding the waves of the changing scene and industry. Then we have The Ongoing Concept.

Scouts’ Honor

In trying to keep with a pseudo-promise we made at the beginning of the year, this show has Brian’s Bandcamp pick for the month.  Next week, you’ll have Nick’s.  To spice things up further, we have a special guest this week!  Our good friend and ‘troop leader’ from the Horror Scouts podcast, Mike, brings his thorough reviewing prowess to the show.

Sleep is for the Weak

If you feel like Brian sounds “tired as fuck” in the episode, you’re not alone…Nick already pointed that out.  You are not wrong either…I was shot.  I still made it through this jam-packed and kinda long episode, giving you 100% of the 50-60% capacity I was at because the show must go on….
