Creeping ever closer to our hundredth episode, we bring you another week of new releases, head-bangin’ tunes, and no Rock(jock). Amongst the business-as-usual, we have a live review of the Summer Slaughter tour stop in NYC and another entry into our ever-growing (Side)Showcase with Progressive Metal Bostonians Lattermath.  Also, for those of you who think Brian doesn’t go low enough with his ratings as often as he should, make sure you listen here to find out which of these albums gets added to that short list.

Now that we have all enjoyed our nice, long, and probably drunken holiday weekend, it’s time to get back to the grind with some new music.  Ok, so some of this isn’t brandy new (like Sabbath), but it’s new enough.  Kyle is still running from the authorities after being caught with a huge stash of illegal fireworks* so he is not with us this week, but the (not-so) dynamic duo of Nick and Brian pulled through to bring you a fresh show, even if it is a little bit later than normal.  There’s new albums, new first impressions, and some new terms and labeling Brian makes up while running his mouth. So, in the end, it’s business as usual.
