This week’s show does haven our typical variety of genre-hopping madness.  No, this time the four new reviews fall into two categories: Death Metal and Black Metal. The BM here is of the Post-/Atmospheric/Folk variety, but it is Black nonetheless. Anybody who has been listening to this show for a while knows Brian prefers DM and while Nick seems to enjoy this style of BM.  So with these leanings, will there be squabbles ahead? Will the ratings takes hits?  Listen to find out!

We have a special episode for you this week. In honor of Valentine’s Day, we decided to do a “Love Metal” episode and review the entire catalog of HIM.

No, of course we didn’t do that!  Geez…who do you think we are? Revolver?  Valentine’s Day is the most useless holiday*, so we took a different route.  We did the opposite and reviewed three Black Metal albums and one OSDM album  That’s “Old School Death Metal” for those uninitiated. While doing this, we also analyze why Nick once despised Black Metal by picking the sub-genre apart and looking at what he likes and dislikes.  We also have two new song previews!  Oh, and we hope you did’t get two used to Kyle because he followed through with his threat from last week and is absent for all of this.

*It’s useless because you and your significant other should be showing your love for each other all year, not just on one day by blowing a bunch of money on a special day because Hallmark and Kay told you to.
