This week, we are trying something a little different.  While we are still reviewing albums (as we do every week) and we do always tend to discuss the production of said albums, we are making that the focus of the show.  With the release of the 10th Anniversary Edition of As the Palaces Burn inspiring the idea, and the fact that Brian had a few remastered albums sitting on his desk, we decided to give a bit of analysis to those reworks. We do also discuss the merits of the albums themselves because, save for Palaces, we hadn’t heard the others before, so you may not have either!  We also have two brandy-new albums thrown in there for good measure.

Once again the Rock(jock) left us hanging high and dry so you Brian joined Nick in his “studio” to bring you this episode.  The two perfect-attendance-holders take you on journey of albums ranging from the minimalistic electronics of Trent Reznor’s newest output to the blistering Death Metal madness of Gorguts, making a few stylistic twist and turns in the middle.  And there are new tunes for most of these albums for you to enjoy…or skip, but either way they are there.
