P.S.  As you heard last week, in this episode and may have read in comments recently, Nick and I overlooked a few releases when talking about Most Disappointing, Best Debut, etc. You should know by now we aren’t always the sharpest crayons in the box. Well, adding to that list, we neglected to mention an EP we both enjoyed – Welcome to Poetry 201 by The Nietzsche. (Check out our 4 star review HERE if you missed it.) Sorry about that guys!

Sometimes being at a loss for words can speak volumes. This becomes readily apparent as our faithful heroes maneuver through a slew of new albums, all of which are from more well known bands, compared to last week, anyway.   All these reviews, luckily, have new tunes to accompany them…which is extra sweet for releases like Serpents Unleashed which has a few weeks before coming out, and we can give you a fresh taste of.  But I digress in my excitement…just stop reading and listen for yourself already!

Nick and Brian hold down the fort for another week while Kyle is off nerding it up at NY ComicCon. Kyle will return next week, but in the meantime, the two faithful hosts bring you four more fresh reviews as well as a couple of previews. And this is about the time we makes some witty comments and make this post more amusing, but we are a bit tired after a late night filled with laser tag and The Cabin in the Woods so…sorry about that.
