At the Speed of Grind

We have some long-awaited follow-ups this week!  Well, we haven’t been really been “waiting” for two of them, but Brian has been anxiously waiting almost five freakin’ years for the third.  The question we are here to answer, though, is, “Are any of them worth the wait?”

Some New Shit!

We have some brandy new jams this week, ranging from sweet melodies to chaotic grind and…well, not “everything in between” but there’s a little bit of variation.  We also debut this year’s gimmicky feature, which should be fun!

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?

Lucky Number Seven

We hit another milestone!  Seven years straight of a couple of Metal fans sharing their thoughts on new Metal albums.  Sure, not all of them have been posted “on time,” but for 364 weeks in a row we have posted episodes, working around natural disasters, vacations, and commitments to our actual jobs..  And this is about as much special attention as this is gonna get.
