We have a mixed bag of releases this week.  What makes that different than most every other week?  Well, nothing really.  Though, we do finally have some 2015 releases to talk about!  So, that’s different than the last few weeks, I guess.  It’s more like getting back to normal…or whatever.  Just listen.

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!

Jumping from detoxed Metalcore to Folky Melodic Death to Black Metal strangeness to Death-y Grindcore, we have perfect formula for the ADD diagnosed listeners who can’t…SQUIRREL.  We also may have another first in this episode during one of our reviews.  Curious which?  Well, there is an easy way to find out…
