It’s that time of the year again! That’s right, we have all of little lists that aren’t our favorite albums of the year! Also keeping with tradition, Mr. Mike Clancey joins us to discuss our favorite artwork of the year.
Answering the Call
What happens when Slam goes beyond Slam? When Crust/Grind/Metallic Hardcore steps aside the style a little? Or when Black Metal overpowers everything else? We have those answers and more in this episode!
Ingested– Call of the Void (Unique Leader)
Call of the Void – Buried in Light (Translation Loss)
This Gift is a Curse – A Throne of Ash (Season of Mist)
Our Top 20 of 2018
Happy New Year freaks! Looks like we are going to kick off 2019 by being the last people to share our favorites of 2018. It was an interesting year, and we didn’t have any clear idea of what the list would look like, so you’ll probably be as surprised as we were.
To repeat what we share in this show, we will now be doing episodes every other week. Life has just gotten in the way a little and we can’t keep up with a weekly pace at this time. With this change, we hope to give more time to the albums we listen to and keep giving you quality reviews. Thank you for listening and keeping us going!
In Search of Self
As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe). We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others. For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out.
Parkway Drive – Reverence (Epitaph)
Homewrecker – Hell is Here Now (Good Fight)
Ingested – The Level Above Human (Unique Leader)
