We have a good one for you this week, folks.  As promised last week, we have the return of the first (Side)Showcase band (before we even titled it such), Goathanger, and a review of their debut full-length. Also returning to the ‘cast, we catch up with “friend of the show” Byzantine where we discuss what is happening with their new crowd-funded album and the fun times to be had in West Virginia. Around all of that – if you couldn’t figure it out from the episode title – we have three other releases we cover too.  So get get on in here and get listening!

This week’s installment is chock full of goodies for your listening pleasure!  For starters, we realized back when we announced the winner of the Jeff Loomis giveaway , we did not take that opportunity to share who our favorite modern metal guitarists were, despite having asked you listeners to do just that.  So, we decided that this week would be as good a time as any (better late than never, right?).  However…even bigger than that…we have our FIRST featured music submission!  After 31 episodes of requesting bands send us their music to play and/or review, South Australian band Goathanger graced us with their demo (which you can download for free by clicking HERE or on the album art on the right).  Rounding out the show, Nick shares some of his favorite singles (like Brian did last week), we go back and take a second look at a few albums, and, as always, we review some new music.
