Three Fucking Hundred

For 300 weeks in a row, we have presented a new episode of the Sideshow without fail. That means every week for approximately 5.75 years, you have had at least Nick and Brian providing new album reviews (or end of the year lists). So to celebrate the milestone, we…uh…well…just keep the train rolling.

Men of Folklore

Brian legit expected one of these bands to have existed in the late 80’s and have reformed.  That would have been some good made-up back story.  One of these bands accuse some dude of actually being the fictitious back story.  The other third…well, they don’t really fit the gag, so just make something up yourself.

You’re Doing It Wrong

What’s interesting this week is that album that both of us agree is kind of middle-of-the-road is the one that actually gets it the most right.  The first reviewed album gets it’s mostly right, but left one of us wanting more.  One gets it’s so wrong, we actually spend about 20 minutes talking about it (sorry…kinda…).  And the other is just blah.  Funny how that works out….

Reviews:
Scale the Summit V (Prosthetic)
