Four Freakin’ Hundred!

So we have done a lot of episodes in our 8+ years as podcast!  It would have been more if we did change our release format this year, but we still haven’t missed a scheduled show!  This also mean we have listened to a metric fuckton of music, a fun fact Nick details in the show.

Thanks for being with us this far, and we look forward to being with you for years to come!

Musical Reuben 

We have reviewed all of these bands before on this show…a few times each, actually.  Despite that, two of the albums reviewed this week took us by surprise, for different reasons.  The third was good, but we also expected it to be good. So get listening to see how that all shakes out.

Don’t Call It a Comeback

Well, actually, that is exactly what you should call it, for one of these anyway. One of these is actually still trying to work their way in for the first time. The other? Well, maybe they should be on their way out…

In Search of Self

As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out.
