Not the Strong Start We Hoped For

This week we have our first reviews of 2020 releases, and, as the title suggests, you can tell it is still January.  What we also have, though, is out brand new segment we are calling  “Black Label,” where every month, we will feature a record label!  this will introduce us – and therefore you – to a whole lot of new music.

This Is Important

Why is this important, you ask?  Well, mostly because we cover a few albums that may affect our upcoming year-end lists.  Also, one of these albums just has a heavy, significant message to the world. Oh, and maybe that’s just an attention-grabbing title.

Fulfilling Promises of Death

As we promised last week, we have some more – and different – Death Metal for you in this show. It’s not all DM though, as we also bring another promised review. See?  We are good, honorable men who stay true to our word…or something like that.

States of the Art

We teased doing this a few episodes ago, and guess what? We actually did it!  Did what you ask?Your hosts dug through Bandcamp (a process which we discuss) to find some rad bands from their respective states, and we pit them against each other in a battle to the death!  Errr, I mean, we made each other listen to them and we reviewed them…ya know, like we do.
