Come Origin(al)

That title is solely for Nick’s amusement. We don’t have anything truly original here (and we don’t need to get into the semi-philisophical argument that “nothing is original”). What we do have, though, are a couple of solid albums and one that has a few songs that don’t really help in the fight against Chad Kroeger.


Origin – Unparalleled Universe  (Nuclear Blast)
Stone Sour Hydrograd (Roadrunner)
Northlane Mesmer (UNFD)

First Impression:
Neck of the Woods – “Bottom Feeder” from The Passenger out September 15 through Basick Records

What happens when your hosts become a little sleep deprived after going to a couple of shows in the days before recording? Episode 81.  While Nick and Brian were running on fumes and a little punchy before turing on the mics, they pull it together as best they can so they can share said show experiences, collectively having seen Parkway Drive, Sevendust, Coal Chamber, and more.  They also get through  four new releases, and share the new Scale the Summit single.

It’s been a hell of a week for the country, especially the east coast.  And with your host residing in NY and MA, you probably thought we’d be skipping a week, didn’t you?  Well, you are wrong! We weren’t gonna let something like a hurricane ruin our streak!  Also. we all could probably use a distraction, so we are here to help while keeping you up to speed on the latest heavy releases…because that is what we do.

We have a solid show for you this week.  Good discussion, no fights, no real tangents, just good talk of heavy music. The reviews make for some good discussions based on their respective types of metal, which range from Folk to Doom/Gothic. The First Impressions alone run the gamut from Black/Folk/Progressive Metal to whatever you categorize Stone Sour as, so that keep things fresh as well.  Oh, and we take a few quick stabs at Five Finger Death Punch.  Why do they even get mentioned, you ask?  Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out.


Reviews: Darkness By Oath – Near Death Experience; The Foreshadowing – Oionos and Second WorldKorpiklaani – Manala

First Impressions: Asking Alexandria – “Run Free”; Enslaved – “Thoughts Like Hammers”; Monuments – “Degenerate”; Stone Sour – “Gone Sovereign/Absolute Zero”
