Only the Finest Quality Audio

We have four rather diverse albums for you this week.  I feel like we say that a lot, but just look at them! The styles are all over the place!  But that’s just how we like it, and hopefully you do too.  We also talk a little bit about getting Metal as HD audio.

No, we’re not done.  We’re just starting year seven!  However, one band we review this week, is coming to an end.  We also discuss another that is not technically calling it a day, but it will be the end of the band as we know them.

Smorgasbord

We have a delightful spread of heavy treats for you this week.  I know we tend to have diverse offerings, but the array of offerings we have this week is kind of all over the place.  That said, if you have tastes as diverse as we do, there’s a lot for you to digest here.

Spark It Up

We almost took a break from Death Metal this week, but we apparently can’t keep away from it!  Our three main album reviews, however, are devoid of the brutality.  They make up for that in riffs…and stoner vibes.

Defying Age

Two of the bands we cover this week have been around for quite some time.  In fact, your hosts have been following one of them for over half their lives! Sure, there are many more bands that fit that bill, but every now and then you just have that “when the hell did that happen?” moment.
