Like Having Sex While Camping

Not only do we have an overload of music for you this week, most of it is really heavy and pretty fucking intense. Even better is we like or love all of it!  Hopefully you do too!

Fuck That Noise

One of these albums was so, uh, unpleasant that it spawned the title of the episode.  Fortunately, the rest of the show makes up for that album, but holy hell was that one bad.  Stop trying to guess which album I am referring to and just listen already.

(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!

Only the Finest Quality Audio

We have four rather diverse albums for you this week.  I feel like we say that a lot, but just look at them! The styles are all over the place!  But that’s just how we like it, and hopefully you do too.  We also talk a little bit about getting Metal as HD audio.
