Skeletonwitch

Get Up On This Death Trip

Fun facts: Though Skeletonwitch and The Agony Scene may seem to be generations apart, Skeletonwitch actually released their first full-length a little over a year after The Agony Scene did! Aaaaaand Skeletonwitch released Beyond the Permafrost (2nd album) only three weeks before TAS released Get Damned (3rd album).

Listapaloozamania Start Now!

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the podcast we were stirring, bitching, and moaning about making lists.  I mean, we go through this every year, so you think we would just get over it. Anyway, as in years past, we have a few other short lists like Best Artwork (which you can see below), Most Disappointing, and Worst Albums. Enjoy these treats this week, and come back next week for the 2016 grand finale!

Rock is Not Dead, but Maybe Nu-Metal Should Be

Despite Marilyn Manson’s proclamation in 1998, Rock is not dead.  It just kind of went into hiding.  Rock hid in the underground, and also holed up with some other sub-genres…which it started doing way before 1998. Anyway, another thing that largely went into hiding only to rear it’s head again is Nu-Metal.  While we have presented a few exceptions on this here podcast, we have probably given more examples as to why Nu-Metal should have stayed hidden.  Unfortunately, we have an argument for the latter again this week.  Oh, and we have some first impressions to discuss too, so if you are still reading this, hopefully you have started the show already.
