Bring the Pain and Kick Out the Jams

We’re trying out something new this week with titling the episodes after getting some SEO pointers from my buddy in Deadtide.  I guess time will tell if it really helps.  ANYWAY…this week’s show is pretty meat-and-potatoes with your not-so-dynamic duo of hosts ripping through the standard four album reviews. The music however, is largely not as straight forward as the show itself, and quite varied in style…which i guess is standard for us at this point, isn’t it?  No matter – there is some good taters in here, so get listening!

We came up a little short with albums to review this week (not the same story next week), but had a hell of a lot to talk about!  We share our thoughts on Killswitch Engage rejoining with Jesse Leach, the impact Meshuggah has in 2012, and The Human Abstract having enough drama to start their own reality show (“Abstractly Human” is the  not-so-clever working title).  Also, since we found one that related to the recently-passed non-metal holiday, Valentines’s Day, we see the return of Freak of the Week! Aaaaaaand we reveal the winner of our very first contest!  Even if you didn’t enter you should listen for it because Kyle could not have botched up the announcement more if he tried.

Album Reviews: Chimp Spanner – All Roads Lead Here EPPsycroptic – The Inherited Repression

Single Reviews: The Human Abstract – “Moonlight Sonata“; Meshuggah – “Break Those Bones Whose Sinews Gave It Motion”
