We have reviewed all of these bands before on this show…a few times each, actually.  Despite that, two of the albums reviewed this week took us by surprise, for different reasons.  The third was good, but we also expected it to be good. So get listening to see how that all shakes out.

As we hit another milestone number, we again do nothing about it. So instead of focusing on that, let’s focus on the wide variety of heavy music we have for you this week.
