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.

Men of Folklore

Brian legit expected one of these bands to have existed in the late 80’s and have reformed.  That would have been some good made-up back story.  One of these bands accuse some dude of actually being the fictitious back story.  The other third…well, they don’t really fit the gag, so just make something up yourself.

Nothing Wrong with Tradition

If you are to look into it, you can find the original, archetypal style for all sub-genres of Rock and Metal (or any other genre, really).  Those foundations are built upon to create new sounds, styles, and ultimately new sub-genres, but there will always be bands playing that original sound.  this week, we discuss a few of those bands.

So Fresh and So…or Maybe Not So Much

The title isn’t suggesting there is a bunch of garbage awaiting you in this episode.  It’s just noting that some of the content, even while good, is not as good as it could be.  It also references one host’s Bandcamp pick for the week.  Listen through and you’ll get it.  Trust me.
