The Devil Went Down…

Instead of writing something witty (or not) here, I’m going to start a discussion we didn’t have on the show – Slayer is finally calling it a day.  If you’ve been listening to the show for a while, you know how Nick and I feel about it (they should have done it years ago).  How do you feel?  Let’s chat in the comments!

Now that we have all enjoyed our nice, long, and probably drunken holiday weekend, it’s time to get back to the grind with some new music.  Ok, so some of this isn’t brandy new (like Sabbath), but it’s new enough.  Kyle is still running from the authorities after being caught with a huge stash of illegal fireworks* so he is not with us this week, but the (not-so) dynamic duo of Nick and Brian pulled through to bring you a fresh show, even if it is a little bit later than normal.  There’s new albums, new first impressions, and some new terms and labeling Brian makes up while running his mouth. So, in the end, it’s business as usual.

Defying all expectations, the one and only Rock(jock) makes it back again!  (You know you’re excited…or something).  He even brings a special guest, who, if you have been listening, was mentioned in last two shows. With that, we also have a diverse review line-up, which includes one album where I guarantee some of the ratings given will shock you (hint: stick around to the end).  In the middle of the show, we “rapid fire” 10 new singles giving our first impressions of new albums dropping in the coming months.  Yes, TEN!  And we have more coming next week, so make sure you stay tuned.
