Sometimes being at a loss for words can speak volumes. This becomes readily apparent as our faithful heroes maneuver through a slew of new albums, all of which are from more well known bands, compared to last week, anyway.   All these reviews, luckily, have new tunes to accompany them…which is extra sweet for releases like Serpents Unleashed which has a few weeks before coming out, and we can give you a fresh taste of.  But I digress in my excitement…just stop reading and listen for yourself already!

Once again the Rock(jock) left us hanging high and dry so you Brian joined Nick in his “studio” to bring you this episode.  The two perfect-attendance-holders take you on journey of albums ranging from the minimalistic electronics of Trent Reznor’s newest output to the blistering Death Metal madness of Gorguts, making a few stylistic twist and turns in the middle.  And there are new tunes for most of these albums for you to enjoy…or skip, but either way they are there.
