You Asked For It

A few weeks ago, we started soliciting your requests for albums and bands to review on the show.  Well, we listened to the posts shared on Google +, tweets at Kyle on Twitter, and comments left on Facebook and this site, took a bunch of those suggestions, and formed an entire episode around reviewing what you wanted us to.  Some suggestions were great, some not so much, but that was the fun of it!

To keep this interaction going, keep your suggestions coming via all the aforementioned channels!  We are keeping a running list of them (we didn’t get to all of the suggestions this time) so we keep this going in future episodes.  Also, if your opinion of these suggestions differs from ours, let us know why in the comments!

Oh, and one more thing…we apologize in advance for Brian and Kyle’s excessive arguing in this episode.  They hadn’t had it out in a while so it got a little out of hand, and Nick even joined in a bit before shutting the two of them up.  This is why we include the chapter skips in the show.  You’re welcome.


Reviews: Dyscarnate – And So it Came to Pass; Exotic Animal Petting Zoo – Tree of TonguesMake Them Suffer – Neverbloom; Sabaton – Carolus Rex

As you will probably notice listening to this week’s show, Kyle seems to think he has broken the space/time continuum, putting us a week ahead at episode 43.  But, alas, he does not have some special super power, and we are back at…well, currently at…42.   And, in this week’s episode, we managed to scrape up four brand new album reviews, hitting a few different metal stylings, including one we aren’t entirely sure we can still count as metal…not in a bad way though.   We also hit the G+ Spot and tell you about the future plans for the actual Episode 43, which will be all about the albums you asked us to check out. (Feel free to keep giving us more suggestions! We’ll keep going back to them for future episodes.)

July’s release schedule gives new meaning to the dog days of summer. After barely having enough reviews for Episodes 40 and 41, the last week of the month offers nada in the way of new music. But that’s fine by us because we’re making you Freaks do all the hard work instead.

That’s right—we’re letting the inmates run the asylum in Episode 43 with a new segment called #YouAskedForIt. Inspired by two of our most faithful Freaks (@bobjsala and @JorgeColonna), we want to know what you’re listening to. And then, in typical SIDESHOW fashion, we’ll tell you whether you’re a connoisseur of taste or a poseur that’s wasting our time. And by “we” I mean the ROCK(jock) is probably the only one who will be a dick about it.

In order for this to work though we need you to make your voices heard! Throw us your suggestions in the comments section of this post, over on our Facebook wall, or on Twitter with #YouAskedForIt. Then make sure to come back on Sunday, July 29 for Episode 43 to hear our infallible judgments on your personal tastes.

The SIDESHOW Podcast—letting you bring us the best (and worst) in music to make your ears bleed.
