Hit or Miss

We inadvertently picked a set of dense albums to review this week, so collectively, listening to them all repeatedly was a bit daunting.  But, like always, we did it and we have thoughts to share about them! That is why you came here, right?

This week’s show does haven our typical variety of genre-hopping madness.  No, this time the four new reviews fall into two categories: Death Metal and Black Metal. The BM here is of the Post-/Atmospheric/Folk variety, but it is Black nonetheless. Anybody who has been listening to this show for a while knows Brian prefers DM and while Nick seems to enjoy this style of BM.  So with these leanings, will there be squabbles ahead? Will the ratings takes hits?  Listen to find out!
