Inferi

(Dis)comfort Zone

It seems like oxymoronic to call any Metal music “comfortable”  but I think a lot of us find it comfortable and/or safe in number of ways.  When a band becomes comfortable or safe, though, that can be a good – like they found their “groove” – or bad – like they didn’t try hard enough.  All of this comes up with our reviews, to varying degrees, and we’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

Keeping the Streak Alive

Yup, we have some more Death Metal!  And because it makes writing these things easier, I cam going to point this out until we have a week without a Death Metal act. That said, the majority of this episode actually is occupied by “core” bands, so maybe the end is nigh…

Continuing last week’s exploration of shit we missed in 2014, we have four more choice cuts from various year end lists.  The difference is that this week, everything is rated higher overall.  Really, that’s good news for everybody involved…especially your hosts since we have to listen to it all.  Rounding out the show, we have our first live review of 2015 – which leads to a discussion about live production – and we discuss albums that will/might/we want to come out this year.
