Rock is Not Dead, but Maybe Nu-Metal Should Be

Despite Marilyn Manson’s proclamation in 1998, Rock is not dead.  It just kind of went into hiding.  Rock hid in the underground, and also holed up with some other sub-genres…which it started doing way before 1998. Anyway, another thing that largely went into hiding only to rear it’s head again is Nu-Metal.  While we have presented a few exceptions on this here podcast, we have probably given more examples as to why Nu-Metal should have stayed hidden.  Unfortunately, we have an argument for the latter again this week.  Oh, and we have some first impressions to discuss too, so if you are still reading this, hopefully you have started the show already.

Pants On Fire

Ok, so we may have lied to you all a little, albeit accidentally. I believe last week we claimed that we would have all new tunes for a while.  Well, we only have one 2016 release this week, though we are willing to bet that these albums are all new to you.  We also said (I think in 225) we wouldn’t review the Dropout album. As you can see, that statement also did not hold true.  We’re pretty sure you’ll thank us for changing our minds on that one though…

Live and Well

Boy, do we have a packed show for you!  I don’t think we’ve made an episode this long in quite some time!  Four new reviews, two of which really get your hosts talking.  We also have not one, but TWO live reviews, which in our infinite awesomeness, we coordinated with two of album reviews. So, strap yourself in for good one, freaks!  Oh, and be sure to get talking with us in the comments!

Grinding Through Progression

As hinted at last week, we review the new BTBAM album this week, and we (accidentally) decided to pair it with another long-winded progressive album. In an attempt to balance that out, we picked two albums whose combined length is still not as long as either progressive album. They do, however, test our endurance…just in a very different way.
