We were supposed to have a fourth review this week, but when supplying the music, one host accidentally supplied the wrong album.  However, the other two hosts didn’t even realize it was the wrong album until right before recording.  Apparently, you’re hosts are as intelligent as they seem to be in the podcasts.  Stop laughing…it’s not nice.  Anyway, we fill some of that time by hitting the G+ Spot and giving a quick review of a new All That Remains song.  Kyle also shares an idea for a future episode, which was requested by a weekly listener who doesn’t even like metal!

The SIDESHOW is a constantly evolving hydra. Every time you take something away–whether it be hosts or radio towers–we find new and heavier ways to fulfill our mission statement–bringing you the best (and worst) music to make your ears bleed. It’s been that way for almost a decade. It’s who we are and it’s what we do. Today, we slay another head so three news ones can spring forth from the depths and assault all your metal needs better than ever before.

First, allow me to state the obvious–we’re not a metal news site. A ton of those already exist on the Interweb and do it far better than we ever could. We don’t talk about news that much on the show either because, well, there’s not much time for it in the fleeting moments between arguments. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have a lot to say about all the interesting stuff going.

Another obvious fact–a lot of people use Facebook. I don’t know why, but they do and our lack of presence there means we deprive a large chunk of the world of our infinite wisdom.

That’s why, after weeks of talking, we’ve finally relaunched our Facebook page to bludgeon both these birds with one nuclear bomb of metal.

Facebook will be a one stop shop for of all The SIDESHOW Podcast’s online shenanigans. It will feature all the posts from our central location at www.thesideshowpodcast.com, all of our Tweets–which you’ll start seeing at more regular and frequent intervals–and most importantly, all the news fit to post from our favorite metal news outlets across the post-Apocalyptic wasteland that is the Internet. That will come courtesy of our new G+ account, which you can follow over at http://www.Gplus.to/thesideshowpodcast. Or, better yet, just keep up with EVERYTHING we do on Facebook. That’s what it’s there for.

More importantly, these are three new and improved ways for YOU to make your voice heard. We may drive this crazy train, but you’re the ones steering it and we want to hear from you. Post on Facebook, share us on G+, Tweet back on Twitter, or leave a comment on TheSIDESHOWPodcast.com. No matter where you scream, we will hear it.

2012 may not be our 10th Anniversary just yet as I erroneously Tweeted a while back, but we intend on keeping our promise to make it the Year of The SIDESHOW. Join us in the mosh pit.
