Dabbling in Body Horror

We tried really hard to do an episode themed around bands with body horror names.  However, despite our efforts, we only got 2/3 of the way there. So, instead of amputating the show for the sake of a theme, filling the third slot is a band whose theme is based on a horrific story.

Off to a Groovy Start

As we work our way deeper into 2021, we transition with a hybrid episode of sorts.  We have two brand new albums for your earholes this week, but we also check out two more things we didn’t get to last year.  Per usual though, results are as mixed as the styles covered.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

2019 Shit We Missed

As we usually do with the first episode of the year, we covered some albums we didn’t get to in the previous year.  Since we did some preemptive maintenance late in 2019, we took a different approach to what we chose for the episode. So let us know if there is anything else from 2019 (besides Tool) we should check out!
