There Be Quibbles Ahead

We have a solid set of releases for you this episode!  They aren’t perfect – which is obviously what we discuss here – but they are all worth a listen.  Well, they are worth your time if you are into the respective styles of Metal.

And remember – Stay safe. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

We have starkly diverse line-up of reviews this episode. I mean, we usually have a mix of styles, but there were some sharp transitions when we were listening this week.  We also start our next Black Label feature, and talk about quarantine life.

Feel free to discuss anything and everything with us in our comments section or on social media!

And remember – Be safe. Stay inside. Stay Metal.

Don’t Call It a Comeback

Well, actually, that is exactly what you should call it, for one of these anyway. One of these is actually still trying to work their way in for the first time. The other? Well, maybe they should be on their way out…

New Year, Same Show

Per usual, we are kicking off the new year by reviewing some albums we missed last year. However we are also kicking off a new feature we will be doing all year, which we just decided to name “Bands Across America.” Every week (until the year-end episodes), we are going to feature a band from each of the 50 states.  This week has a band from the first state to enter the union – Delaware.

Repeat Offenders

As much as we love finding new artists, we also love following ones we’ve found already. Well, this week is chock full of those bands, all but one of which we have reviewed multiple times before.  We haven’t loved all the previous output either, so get listening to see if we think these are the latest and greatest.
