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.

We have bit of treat this week – your hosts were recording together in person. Ok, so maybe that doesn’t make a big difference to you, but it’s fun for us. Also, all three albums reviews are from bands new to the show, which is quite an accomplishment two hundred and ninety four weeks in.

Snow, Bourbon, and Metal

We continue digging into 2017 with some heavy sh*t this week, and it does not disappoint.  I mean, rating results varied, but overall, it was a solid week…better than last week, if we do say so ourselves. Also, I promise this title makes sense once you listen to the show.
