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.

Soulfly Ritual (Nuclear Blast)
Castle Deal Thy Fate (Ripple)
ShiningAnimal (Spinefarm)

To be clear – the episode is NOT boring! Your hosts just separately opine that some of the music could have been a little more interesting.  That doesn’t mean you should skip anything…you might like it!  You might think one of us is wrong and want to irrationally argue with the “wrong” host in the comments! There is fun to be had here, even if we didn’t think it was in the music.

While most of you may not notice the change, the inevitable has happened…the one and only Rock(jock) has officially retired from The Sideshow.  While he most likely rear his ugly head every once and a while, he will be intentionally missing from future episodes.  So, that means you guys are stuck with Nick and Brian steering the ship, trying to keep course.  Correcting course from the end of last week’s show, we now have our Internet connections in working order, and we pick up where we left off.  We also bring you three additional album reviews…and music for all of them!  AND we have two more live reviews.  AAAND…no, wait..that’s it.
