Stop Me if You’ve Heard This One…

A podcast reviews a few albums, and none of the metallic styles of the albums are similar, but there is one that is way different than the others.  When they reviewed, the number ratings are pretty close to each other, if not the same.  There’s also a review of a single that doesn’t get played during the show.  How did you not stop me?  You must be new because this should sound very familiar.

Hit the Road, Jack

Hey, we have three brand new albums again!  Imagine that…  Also, as promised last week, we have a rundown of all the tours in progress or coming around soon.  Well, not all of them.  I realized we missed at least two (and apparently got a few other pieces of information wrong…but that is the Internet’s fault), but that has all been fixed in the list below, so that counts for something.  Right? RIGHT?  That’s what I thought.

The Ultimate Collaboration

We have four new albums, three of which are from bands previously reviewed on the podcast. This week’s show has quite a mix of stuff, but is pretty straightforward. As such, so is this write-up.  Just get listening.

Happy Easter! Or Happy 420, if that is your thing. Whether you are listening to this while getting high on sugar or some other substance (or both), we have four new albums this week that you should find (overall) more enjoyable than last week’s selections.  We did! For good measure, we have a live review of a tour that you probably should have gone too.  If you missed it, you are SOL now, but I am sure you’ll be able to see the bands again soon.
