Oh hey, did you all miss us? Well, we’re back at last with a new episode! This week, the guys discuss news from AC/DC and Sepultura, and dig into albums from Cobalt, Amon Amarth and more. Plus, a celebration of the mercurial Syracuse Orange basketball team’s run to the Final Four of the 2016 NCAA Tournament!
All that and much, much more in Episode 36, so check it out!
God-DAMN, what a new release Friday we’ve got today. Even if all we had dropping today was the new Cobalt, it’d still have been a hell of a day. In case it wasn’t clear, that’s your reminder to pick up the band’s long-awaited third album, Slow Forever. It’s an absolute triumph, and a surefire album-of-the-year contender. (Yes, it’s March. Not comfortable dropping “AOTY” bombs this early? Let’s give it a more timely nickname: how about “No. 1 Overall Seed”? #Madness)

Normally, I snag some new black metal release, get all liquored up, talk about it (sometimes), and get a little, or all the way, weird. But that’s not going to happen this time. Relax, relax, I’m still drinking in mass quantities. To that point, tonight’s specials are Harpoon’s mediocre Take 5 Session IPA (x5) and Southern Comfort. Why Southern Comfort? Because I miss my stupid SoCo insanity from my youth. And much like Troy Aikman, I dwell on the past. Deal with it.
