…or is the Super Hog Day?  Whatever…today has something to do with a rodent and also SPORTS! Here at the ‘cast, however, none of that really matters since we’re just gonna talk about (and play) heavy music. In addition to our four album reviews this week, we also do a couple of First Impressions!  Been a while, hasn’t it?  Those surround a little chat about our feelings of At The Gate’s announcement of a new album and Tompa’s subsequent interview with Decibel.

Over this past week, the most of the US was melting like a snowball in Hell. Most of us didn’t find it very pleasant, especially sweating our balls off just going to and from work.  So, today, to celebrate returning to normal summer temperatures (at least here in the Northeast), we bring you another jam packed episode with a whole bunch of new tunes for your aural enjoyment.  Ok, fine…this episode would have happened even if this pass week was nothing special, but whatever. Enjoy it anyway.
