technical death metal

Technical, Groovy, and Grimy

We went extra heavy this week.  Why the extra br00tal?  No particular reason – these are just the albums that fit int he timeline and our general interests.  Like usual, results varied a bit, but you’ll have to listen to find out why.

We also have TWO guests for our Crew Nation donor pick.  What is that, you ask?  Well, go to THIS PAGE to find out how you can help this podcast contribute to Crew Nation and make us review whatever you want.

And remember – Be responsible. Stay healthy. Stay Metal.

Third Time’s a Charm?

We inadvertently chose to review three albums this week that would be our third time reviewing the three bands.  It’s safe to say results varied, but it was great theme we didn’t meant to make. Oh, and you don’t want to miss this show’s Crew Nation donor, a guest with a very special connection to the show.

Opethian Transitions: Part Deux

Unlike the last episode, this one doesn’t actually have anything to do with Opeth.  However, our transitions of styles from review-to-review are extremely jarring.  Also, I am not in the mood to try to think up a better title.
