Hatebreed

Well, This Is A First

There’s nothing particularly special about this episode aside from it being the last regular episode for this shitty year…and a couple of mini-reviews from Brian.  It does, however, mark the first time in over nine years we had to skip a scheduled recording.  Still a damn impressive run, if we do say so ourselves.

You may also notice a review that seems out of place.  Why did we do it? Go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

Agree to Disagree

The show is in rare form this week.  Your normally agreeable hosts did not give any of this week’s albums the same rating.  Did we greatly disagree on any of them?  Did we fight over these albums?  Well, all of your questions will be answered once you listen to the episode.

Hit the Road, Jack

Hey, we have three brand new albums again!  Imagine that…  Also, as promised last week, we have a rundown of all the tours in progress or coming around soon.  Well, not all of them.  I realized we missed at least two (and apparently got a few other pieces of information wrong…but that is the Internet’s fault), but that has all been fixed in the list below, so that counts for something.  Right? RIGHT?  That’s what I thought.
