Stages of Evolution

The only constant is change.  We have seen bands change from almost unnoticeable amounts to seismic sonic shifts. As the catalogs for the three bands below grow, we take a look at how they have evolved..and whether or not we like the change.

And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

We’re Now “The InSideshow Podcast”

Since we’re all essentially quarantined, we thought we’d unofficially name the show for the foreseeable future.  Aren’t we hilarious? Anyway, when you are done listening to us, go stream and/or buy these albums and help keep the scene afloat in these crazy times.

Sick Music for (Hopefully Not) Sick People

I usually put something funny here, but this time i am going to reiterate something from the top of the episode – A lot of industries are getting hit hard, and it will only get worse before it gets better.  Small/indie bands – particularly Metal bands – are going to have it bad.  A lot of bands we follow make their living on the road, pushing their albums, selling merch, and now have their tours are canceled or postponed. I am sure you have seen many write how financially devastating this is.

S0, if you have been putting off buying a shirt, vinyl, digital download, whatever, NOW is the time to buy (if you are able). Even constantly streaming your favorite bands will help.  It’s going to take the whole community keep these bands afloat.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.  Help each other.
