This week’s are some solid albums, but as you can tell before you even listen (because of the sidebar —>) we weren’t exactly blown away.  That doesn’t mean we didn’t think they were good! It just means that they though they, largely, needed a little more.  But don’t take my word for it, listen for yourself. Listen to the reviews, that is…which I would be to take word for it…  Ya know what? Nevermind.  Just listen the to show.

This past Friday here in America was Independence Day, so many of us attended BBQs and parties this weekend, and many of those attendees probably partied a little too hard because ‘Murica (the guy writing this included). Well, come to think of it, many of you not in America may have done the same thing because it was Saturday night and you didn’t need a reason.  Either way, to help get you through the fun morning after, we have four new album reviews (three of which with music) and six First Impressions (two songs played) that we actually go through quickly! Honest!  There are also a few little news bits in there and the usual fun banter you have come to know and love.

Also, I swear it is coincidence that it is Fourth of July Weekend and the one album we disliked was by a British band.

Happy Mother’s Day! While we can’t say this episode is a tribute to mothers in any way, not all of us Metal-heads are hellspawn, so we would like to take this opportunity to wish our mothers and yours a wonderful day, and to thank them for all they have done and continue to do for us.

Now that we have that out of the way, we have four pretty sweet new albums for you this week, and music to go with all of them. Also, since we gave you a doozy of an episode last week, we kept this one a little more compact…but no less awesome (if we do say o ourselves).

First off, I apologize for this first and likely only time we have the country-naming Manowar. Granted we don’t play a song, but still. Anyway, we have a full episode five album reviews with some jams for 60% of them. We also share and discuss a wide range of news from the sad to the unfortunate to the strange.
