When the Normal One Isn’t

The diversity of heavy music stylings is something we pride ourselves on with this podcast.  But sometimes we even surprise ourselves, like when a more “typical” album becomes the proverbial sore thumb of the week.  It’s not a bad thing in anyway, just something a little different.

I told you posting the show late wouldn’t be a regular thing.  You’re welcome.  Anyway…in addition to our regular four-album lineup, we do something we haven’t done in a while and chat about some news from the past week!  There are two stories in particular and both are significant in their own right, so feel free to share your own thoughts about them in the comments.  Oh, and you can talk about he albums there too…or Nick and I…or suggest bands we should check out (we do follow those suggestions). But first, you have to listen to the show, so get moving.

Over this past week, the most of the US was melting like a snowball in Hell. Most of us didn’t find it very pleasant, especially sweating our balls off just going to and from work.  So, today, to celebrate returning to normal summer temperatures (at least here in the Northeast), we bring you another jam packed episode with a whole bunch of new tunes for your aural enjoyment.  Ok, fine…this episode would have happened even if this pass week was nothing special, but whatever. Enjoy it anyway.

Kyle returns to his post this week to guide you through another show full of debauchery and butchering the English language while trying to spit out at least semi-comprehenable reviews of the new albums.  Lucky for you, half of the reviews are complimented by music so you can figure out what we are talking about.  Also, Kyle share his experience seeing Coheed & Cambria, Between the Buried and Me, and what is apparently his new favorite band and something we are reviewing next week, Russian Circles.
