I’m gonna keep this one short and sweet: In another jam packed week, Nick leads through a variety of music reviews (ranging from awesome deathgrind to far-less-than-awesome more traditional metal), first impressions and another music submission!  This week’s submission comes from Skelectory, an unsigned band from Maryland! Also, we finish off our look at favorite songs/singles with Kyle’s picks, and we exhume another band from the grave to see if they are actually missed.

Oh, and make sure you stick through to the end so you can Skelectory for yourself!

Reviews: Cattle Decapitation – Monolith of InhumanityHung – Hung; Huntress – Spelleater

First Impressions: The Acacia Strain – “Servant in the Place of Truth”; The Agonist – “Ideomotor”; Gojira – “L’enfant Sauvage”; Mnemic – “I’ve Been You”

Exhume to Consume – Damageplan – New Found Power


If you want your band (or your friend’s band…or that band you just saw at the bar) featured on the show, send an email to Brian at

This week, Nick joins the show, we review the new album from Vildhjarta, discuss piracy, and Kyle interviews the creators of the comic Black Metal.  But wait…there’s more!  We also kick off our End of the Year Honors!

REVIEW: Vildhjarta – Måsstaden SideShow.9

Hey guys!

Though our regular show posting day will be on Sundays from here on out, I wanted to make sure everything is communicating properly between the site and the iTunes store, so I’m putting the show up NOW instead.  That’s right – TWO DAYS EARLY!

Also, give it up for Kyle for the great show updating at the Frak The Gods Tour last night.  If you’re not already doing so, by sure to follow us on Twitter (@SIDESHOWpodcast) and “Like” us on Facebook (/theSIDESHOWpodcast).

Enjoy the show!
