45 Seconds from Awesome

We have a good dose of heavy for you this episode, including the highly anticipated new album from Gojira.  Unlike most times when promo materials say  “highly anticipated”, I think it is accurate in this case.  We round out the show with some Progressive Thrash and good ol’ groovy Death Metal.

Opethian Transitions

In this episode we come up with ideas on how to be better at social media, review some rad music, and have a long-overdue discussion about Opeth with fan and friend Sideshow Bob.  Pretty productive show, right?!

We’re Now “The InSideshow Podcast”

Since we’re all essentially quarantined, we thought we’d unofficially name the show for the foreseeable future.  Aren’t we hilarious? Anyway, when you are done listening to us, go stream and/or buy these albums and help keep the scene afloat in these crazy times.

Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

Two Overdue Big-Name Reviews…

…and some other band.  I mean, we didn’t mean to overshadow Cognizance (which Brian says wrong almost every time), but it just kinda happened that way.  We have a fair amount to say about all three, so make sure you say your piece int he comments or on social media!

New Year, Same Show

Per usual, we are kicking off the new year by reviewing some albums we missed last year. However we are also kicking off a new feature we will be doing all year, which we just decided to name “Bands Across America.” Every week (until the year-end episodes), we are going to feature a band from each of the 50 states.  This week has a band from the first state to enter the union – Delaware.
