Death Won’t Die

Our inadvertent exploration into various styles of Death Metal continues this week with some Scandinavian Melodic Death and some Progressive/Technical Death Metal from Canada.  We also have a Swedish band that flirts with some Melodic Death too, but I mean, they’re from Sweden. It’s like in their blood or something.

Defying all expectations, the one and only Rock(jock) makes it back again!  (You know you’re excited…or something).  He even brings a special guest, who, if you have been listening, was mentioned in last two shows. With that, we also have a diverse review line-up, which includes one album where I guarantee some of the ratings given will shock you (hint: stick around to the end).  In the middle of the show, we “rapid fire” 10 new singles giving our first impressions of new albums dropping in the coming months.  Yes, TEN!  And we have more coming next week, so make sure you stay tuned.

Want to listent too all of the new music as it comes out?  Then makes sure you’re following The Sideshow on Google +!
