Sleep is for the Weak

If you feel like Brian sounds “tired as fuck” in the episode, you’re not alone…Nick already pointed that out.  You are not wrong either…I was shot.  I still made it through this jam-packed and kinda long episode, giving you 100% of the 50-60% capacity I was at because the show must go on….

Wanna Go for a Ride?

The week we take you on a journey.  Like a bird, we soar through the lush, green country and over a historic, raging river to give you a majestic trip through new Metal for the week. (I hope that was punny enough for you, because that’s all I got.)

Three’s Company…or Three’s a Crowd…

This week’s show follows a very similar trend to last week’s: there’s some awesome 5 (chaos)star releases, there  is one utter disappointment, and the rest fall in between.  Kinda strange how that worked out. There is one major difference this week, but it is obvious enough that I don’t need to explain it to you here.
