episode

Now that we got that nostalgia out of out system, we are back with fully loaded episode. We start this week off with a look at the drama surrounding Randy Blythe and his manslaughter charges in the Chzech Republic.  Those of you who have been following Brian on Google+ are probably sick of hearing about it, but we would be remiss if we did not throw our unsolicited two cents in.  We then get into some brand new album reviews, one of which immediately becomes a two-on-one fight against Kyle.  Also mixed in there is a live review of metal legends Iron Maiden’s “Maiden England” tour stop at Jones Beach! All of this should be enough to make up for last week…not that we are sorry about it, but we are sure there are a few of you who were not as amused as we were.

We teased it last week and now it is here: an all Nü-Metal episode!  We kick it old school, getting all nostalgic on the late 90’s/early 2000’s “metal” your three host started off on.  We also bring it back around, talking about some of these bands reuniting, putting out new music, touring, etc., and even view some some new Nü-Metal!  Yet, somehow we managed to go through the whole recording without discussing Slipknot or System of a Down, admittedly an oversight, but, well, at least they’re mentioned here. Also, to keep a kind of theme going, Brian’s gonna be sharing some Nü-Metal news over on Google+ (where you should be following him anyway for regular actual-Metal news).

So, we all know Kyle can be a cranky, unreasonable son of b!tch…that is something that anybody that has been listening to this podcast knows all too well by now.  However…what do you think happens when you stick him in a 90+ degree apartment with two failing air conditioners and his girlfriend watching Jersey Shore in the background?  Nothing good, that’s what. We get through four new album reviews and hit the G+ Spot before the Rock(Jock) loses his cool.  Eventually we all cool off and climax the show with a little tease of what will be a special Episode 39 next week.

Did you ever wonder what would happen if all three hosts recorded an episode in the same room together, each toting a Nerf (TM) gun? No?  Really?  Kinda surprised by that… Well, at any rate, you now have an answer!  Brian, Nick, and Kyle all got together at Brian’s house, set up in the living room, and discussed some more new releases, the different types of Doom Metal, and shot each other in the face. It was pretty fun and a nice change of pace.  Hopefully you think so too!  And if you didn’t like, well you’re in luck as well since it probably won’t happen again for a long time, if ever.
