Hit or Miss: The Sequel

This week’s selections were not as daunting to get through as last week’s were.  However, (spoiler!) our feelings about them land in the same general area.  You should hear what we have to say, though, instead of just going by the numbers, so get listening…


High on Fire Electric Messiah (eOne)
Monuments Phronesis (Century Media)

On My Own, Here We Go

The albums we reveal this week – the last regular episode of 2016 – all have something in common besides being heavy.  They’re released by the bands themselves.  Labels? They don’t need no stinkin’ labels!  I mean, they may want them, but they prove here they certainly don’t need them.


The holiday season is here, and you will be shopping on Amazon. Please consider changing your bookmark to our site and using the album art on the side to get there!  Amazon will give us a small percent back from your purchase and we use that to keep the show and site up and running.  Thanks!

Septa Sounds Like Murder

Brick By Boring Brick – Part 2

It is brought to my (Brian, that is…in case you forgot I am the one that writes these things) attention in the beginning of this episode that my description of last week’s show may have been a bit harsh. Well, since we both agree that this week is more fitting to Episode 204’s title, I cheated on the name, while simultaneously starting a little episode sub-series.  Like last week, though, – or any week for that matter – you might think we are way off base on our lukewarm feelings for some of these album, or even the warmer feelings we have for the others.  If you’re going “hey, that’s me he’s talking about” then let us know in the comments!


Battlecross Rise to Power (Metal Blade)
Rivers of Nihil Monarchy (Metal Blade)

Yeah, we know this is up late.  And we apologize. And we don’t actually know what went wrong, but things had to be fixed.  So, the episode title relates to that, but numerous other things that we discussed during the time of the recording.  Valentine’s Day is now over, the first of three Friday the 13ths in 2015 has passed, and a day significant to this very institution is also behind us.  What day is that, you ask? Come on…haven’t you learned I am not going to tell you here?  Listen to the episode!
