The Artisan Era

Technical, Groovy, and Grimy

We went extra heavy this week.  Why the extra br00tal?  No particular reason – these are just the albums that fit in the 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.

Choose a Side

We have some really good discussions this week, and a bunch of differing opinions. To the latter, Nick and Brian only completely agree on one of these albums.  So, we want YOU to get in on the conversation in the comments on the site or social media and choose a side!

And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

Nick Doesn’t Care

The title sums up one host’s feelings for 3/4 of these albums.  Can you guess which is the one he really likes? Well, you don’t have to guess…just listen.

And remember – Stay inside. Stay healthy.  Stay Metal.

We Don’t Care

The title here is slightly hyperbolic, but not by much.  This week’s review choices struggled a bit to keep our attention.  Some were better than others, and we certainly had bunch to talk about, so I guess it was all fine in the end.
