If you aren’t the kind of Metal-head who likes a little bit of everything, you are going to find yourself using chapter skip a lot this episode. However, since you are listening to this show, we would be inclined to assume you are that kind of Metal-head, in which case, we have you covered.  From hellish soundtracks to folkiness to progressive to pirates, we just happen to touch on about as many heavy music styles as we can within the span of an episode between out new album reviews and First Impressions.  It may get a little jarring…but you have been warned.

We have been telling you about all these new songs we should be doing First Impressions of for weeks, but we had been otherwise preoccupied with, well, life to get to them.  So, this week we finally get our shit together and cover some!  Turns out there were enough new songs since the last show to do six this segment. Well, there were more but we only get to six of them because of the four albums we review this week.  However we do get to play half of those First Impressions for you as well as something from each album we review, so that should keep you freaks busy for a while.
