Choose a Side

We have some really good discussions this week, and a bunch of differing opinions. To the latter, Nick and Brian only completely agree on one of these albums.  So, we want YOU to get in on the conversation in the comments on the site or social media and choose a side!

And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

Nick Doesn’t Care

The title sums up one host’s feelings for 3/4 of these albums.  Can you guess which is the one he really likes? Well, you don’t have to guess…just listen.

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.

Sick Music for (Hopefully Not) Sick People

I usually put something funny here, but this time i am going to reiterate something from the top of the episode – A lot of industries are getting hit hard, and it will only get worse before it gets better.  Small/indie bands – particularly Metal bands – are going to have it bad.  A lot of bands we follow make their living on the road, pushing their albums, selling merch, and now have their tours are canceled or postponed. I am sure you have seen many write how financially devastating this is.

S0, if you have been putting off buying a shirt, vinyl, digital download, whatever, NOW is the time to buy (if you are able). Even constantly streaming your favorite bands will help.  It’s going to take the whole community keep these bands afloat.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.  Help each other.

Change My Mind

If you have been listening for, well, any amount of time, you know that Nick and Brian have a lot of similar tastes now and agree on a lot.  Every now and then, though, a band or album comes along where they just can’t see eye-to-eye.  Honestly, it probably makes for a better review, but even if not, it certainly makes for some good discussion.
