45 Seconds from Awesome

We have a good dose of heavy for you this episode, including the highly anticipated new album from Gojira.  Unlike most times when promo materials say  “highly anticipated”, I think it is accurate in this case.  We round out the show with some Progressive Thrash and good ol’ groovy Death Metal.

Off to a Groovy Start

As we work our way deeper into 2021, we transition with a hybrid episode of sorts.  We have two brand new albums for your earholes this week, but we also check out two more things we didn’t get to last year.  Per usual though, results are as mixed as the styles covered.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

Death appears to be the name of the game this episode.  We have it in a few forms, namely Progressive, Old School, and N’ Roll.  Hopefully at least one of these appeal to you!

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.
