In Search of Self

As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out.

Adrenaline Injection

The bands we cover this week have all stepped up their game from their respective last albums, which is nice to hear.  Yeah, I know we haven’t discussed one of the bands before, but just take my word for it.  Or don’t…go listen to both albums for yourself.  Just come back and comment “you were right.”
