Didn’t See that Coming
Here it is! The moment you have all (probably) been waiting for! Go listen to our choices and feel free to talk with us about them in the comments.
Day Drinking and Head Banging
Brian was up visiting Nick for the weekend when this episode was recorded and, actually, it’s the first time this year it happened. The show doesn’t really go down any differently, but it’s still fun for us. It also gets us to plan ahead better, so a lot of that happened! Like you care…
He Is Legend – White Bat (Spinefarm)
Torche – Admission (Relapse)
Immortal Bird – Thrive on Neglect (20 Buck Spin)
As our final act of 2017, we now present to you our collective Top 30 Albums of 2017! Feel free to let us know your favorites – or argue about ours – in the comments!
We also want to take this time to thank each and every one of you who listen to this podcast and support us in any way. It is not always easy making keeping up with this show alongside our day jobs and living the rest of our lives, but in the end, we do really enjoy it all. We truly appreciate all of you who listen, whether you are in a state next door or a country on the other side of the world.
We hope you had a great 2017 and we wish you an even better 2018!
When something is described as “Extreme Metal”, you probably think of grinding, brutal, violent Metal. If that is one extreme, though, that means there is another. That other is likely some form of Power Metal – epic, symphonic, and fantasy-driven. We don’t quite go to the far end of this extreme, but we wander down that path to bring you this week’s album reviews.
Iced Earth – Incorruptible (Century Media)
Unleash the Archers – Apex (Napalm)
Sunburst – Fragments of Creation (Inner Wound)
The Erkonauts – “Seven Macaw” single from Indie Recordings
Sevendust 20th Anniversary show w/ He Is Legend, Never Your Zero, and New Theory at Starland Ballroom, Sayreville, NJ on June 22, 2017
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.
He Is Legend – few (Spinefarm)
Shores of Null – Black Drapes for Tomorrow (Candlelight)
Vampire – With Primeval Force (Century Media)
Goatwhore – “Vengeful Ascension” from Vengeful Ascension out June 23rd from Metal Blade
