It’s that time of the year again! That’s right, we have all of little lists that aren’t our favorite albums of the year! Also keeping with tradition, Mr. Mike Clancey joins us to discuss our favorite artwork of the year.
Ain’t Nuthin’ but a G Thang
This episode is stuffed to the brim with content! We review FOUR albums, cover the letter ‘G’ for our ABCs, and have a live review! So, I’ll save you some time by not filling this space with letter-based jokes and let you get right to listening.
Periphery – Periphery IV: Hail Stan (3 Dot)
Allegaeon – Apoptosis (Metal Blade)
Wormwitch – Heaven that Dwells Within (Prosthetic)
Polar – Nova (Nuclear Blast)
Chaos and Carnage Tour 2019 featuring Whitechapel, Dying Fetus, Revocation, Spite, Fallujah, Uncured, and Buried Above Ground at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ on April 18, 2019
At the Speed of Grind
We have some long-awaited follow-ups this week! Well, we haven’t been really been “waiting” for two of them, but Brian has been anxiously waiting almost five freakin’ years for the third. The question we are here to answer, though, is, “Are any of them worth the wait?”
Fallujah – Undying Light (Nuclear Blast)
Misery Index – Rituals of Power (Season of Mist)
Noisem – Cease to Exist (20 Buck Spin)
The last two episodes were busy ones, jam packed with first impressions and live reviews, so we took a step back this week…which was easy since we didn’t go to shows last week. We still have three new reviews for you, and music for your aural bloodletting, so it’s not like we took the week off or anything. We just got down to the brass tacks.
Fallujah – Dreamless (Nuclear Blast)
Polar – No Cure No Savior (Prosthetic)
Dawnbringer – XX
We inadvertently (and kinda loosely) have a theme of space in our album reviews this week. One quite obviously deals with outer-space and sic-fi themes. Another manages to use the space of the soundstage to it’s fullest potential, creating atmosphere and layers. The last…well, the last we just kinda want to put a lot of space between us and the album. Like I said – loosely themed. Oh, and we also made space for some more First Impressions!
Wormed – Krighsu (Season of Mist)
North – Light the Way (Prosthetic)
Walls of Jericho – No One Can Save You from Yourself (Napalm)
