Howdy y’all and welcome to another Saturday morning playlist. This week, I went and saw Dashboard Confessional again so you know what that means, we’ve got all the new singles to keep you covered, plus classic Blind Guardian and Crowbar cuts, and because our Fearless Leader is who he is, just a little Merle Haggard to round things out. It’s a full house of picks this time around, so check all that out and more at the link below.

Jesus what a week.  I thought I might be done eulogizing after Neil Peart’s tragic passing, and then immediately following that post I found out Sean Reinert passed away.  I’ve never made it a secret that Human is my favorite death album, and as much as I love everything Chuck does, it’s because that album has what is, in my opinion, his best backing band.  The Reinert/Masvidal/DiGiorgio combination that lead to songs like “Together As One” and “Lack of Comprehension” was incomparably important to the world of heavy music, to say nothing of Reinert and Masvidal’s accomplishments in Cynic on top of that.  Heavy music lost nothing short of an icon, one of the best drummers in the game and a tireless voice for acceptance and inclusion in the world of heavy metal.  I’ll be feeling this loss for quite some time, but we can and will still celebrate the work Sean left us with. — (ed.) And, of course, Reed Mullin, RIP and fly on brother. Death needs to take a break.

We’re back at it again this weekend morning with another edition of our weekend playlist. This time around, I finally warm up to last year’s White Ward album, Josh gets the new 1349 video in the mix, and Chris is still preaching the Kirk Windstein gospel to us. All this and more at the link below. Happy Saturday.

We’re back on a regular format today.  No more eulogies from me, thankfully.  Instead, we’ve just got our weekly assortment of whatever great tunes we’ve been jamming.  This week, I throw in some new Cult of Luna, which I enjoyed a lot more than its one hour and twenty minute run time would have had me believe I could, Anton throws in the new single from Sutrah which he’s been gushing about to anyone with ears around these parts, and we have a few picks from a site newcomer who you may or may not be hearing more from very soon…

Until then, enjoy.
