Don’t Call It a Comeback

Well, actually, that is exactly what you should call it, for one of these anyway. One of these is actually still trying to work their way in for the first time. The other? Well, maybe they should be on their way out…

Defying Age

Two of the bands we cover this week have been around for quite some time.  In fact, your hosts have been following one of them for over half their lives! Sure, there are many more bands that fit that bill, but every now and then you just have that “when the hell did that happen?” moment.

You Did it Wrong

So why only two albums reviews? Well, as many of you may expect, we have a lot to say about the new Machine Head album, so we wanted to give enough time to that without running the show too long.  Make sure you stick around for the whole show though..there’s good music there. Oh, and we also discuss the production value of August Burns Red‘s remix/remaster of Messengers.

New Music Starts Early This Year

As we mentioned last week, we actually have some new 2018 music to check out!  I know, right? Who would thought we’d be able to start so early? It’s a pretty strong start, if we do say so ourselves.  Continuing Bands Across America, we hit the Dirty Jerz – Brian’s home state!
