Change My Mind

If you have been listening for, well, any amount of time, you know that Nick and Brian have a lot of similar tastes now and agree on a lot.  Every now and then, though, a band or album comes along where they just can’t see eye-to-eye.  Honestly, it probably makes for a better review, but even if not, it certainly makes for some good discussion.

But Did You Hear About Tool??

Yes, we acknowledge Tool did a thing right before we record this show.  Way more importantly, though, we have three new, far more relevant releases to discuss, plus a real ripper of a Sideshow ABCs pick!

Death Comes in Many Forms

Remember that part of Forrest Gump where they go through all the ways you can have shrimp? Well, you can pretty much do the same thing with Death Metal. This week, we have a few styles, next week we’ll have a few more, and who knows? Maybe we’ll have a few more the week after.

A Last Look to 2017

Since new music (we are actually interested) in will be released soon, this will be the last episode solely dedicated to 2017’s Shit We Missed. If there is anything else we really should go back to, please let us know, and we’ll work it in later.  Also, PA was second state to enter the union, so they are this week’s Bands Across America feature!
