Change My Mind

If you have been listening for, well, any amount of time, you know that Nick and Brian have a lot of similar tastes now and agree on a lot.  Every now and then, though, a band or album comes along where they just can’t see eye-to-eye.  Honestly, it probably makes for a better review, but even if not, it certainly makes for some good discussion.

We have a mixed bag of releases this week.  What makes that different than most every other week?  Well, nothing really.  Though, we do finally have some 2015 releases to talk about!  So, that’s different than the last few weeks, I guess.  It’s more like getting back to normal…or whatever.  Just listen.

Since doing our unintentional experiment of blindly trying out new bands (well, at least new to us) worked so well last week, we decided to give it another go this week.  As you may have noticed from the sidebar, our results were a bit more varied.  Why?  Well, get listening and you will find out soon enough.

This week, things get back to normal.  Each host is recording from their respective, powered home.  We have four new album reviews, including the one we missed last week. We even have a discussion that doesn’t turn into a debate/fight (and Brian is able to follow the whole thing)!  Weird, right? Don’t worry…there is a little debating during one of the album reviews. We even have a quick live review of Lamb of God show that went down at Roseland Ballroom in NYC two nights ago.  So, yeah…things are about as normal as they get around here.

You’re traveling through another dimension — a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind and metal. A journey into a wondrous ‘cast whose boundaries are that of imagination (and modern technology and licensing laws). That’s a (chaos) signpost up ahead: your next stop: the Twilight Zone!
