Off to a Good Start What we have for you this time around are three debut full-length albums that, at the very least, show a lot of potential from another wave of bands across a variety of styles. Are any of them mind-blowing levels of awesome? Well, the answer is the reason for this here podcast… https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/sideshow-359.m4a

We don’t know what the weather has been like where you are, but where we are in NJ and MA (USA), we have had crazy heavy storms day after day.  They don’t last long, but they have been wreaking havoc in certain areas.  We mention THIS early on in the show, so see it for yourself.  Oh, and bonus kudos to anybody that gets the show title without googling it. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/sideshow-358.m4a

We have a delightful spread of heavy treats for you this week.  I know we tend to have diverse offerings, but the array of offerings we have this week is kind of all over the place.  That said, if you have tastes as diverse as we do, there’s a lot for you to digest here. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/sideshow-357.m4a

Fun facts: Though Skeletonwitch and The Agony Scene may seem to be generations apart, Skeletonwitch actually released their first full-length a little over a year after The Agony Scene did! Aaaaaand Skeletonwitch released Beyond the Permafrost (2nd album) only three weeks before TAS released Get Damned (3rd album). https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/sideshow-356.m4a

Don’t Call It a Comeback – Part 2: The Comeback This time around, one of these bands is about to release an album 10 years after their last one (a bit more dramatic then the referenced earlier episode).  The same question applies: is it worth it? Well, listen to find out, and make sure you stick around for the new bands! https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/sideshow-354.m4a

As we hit another milestone number, we again do nothing about it. So instead of focusing on that, let’s focus on the wide variety of heavy music we have for you this week. You can also choose to focus on the fact that Nick and Brian actually have differing opinions about one of the albums! Imagine that… https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/sideshow-350.m4a

Two of the bands we cover this week have been around for quite some time.  In fact, your hosts have been following one of them for over half their lives! Sure, there are many more bands that fit that bill, but every now and then you just have that “when the hell did that happen?” moment. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/sideshow-347.m4a

It was a loooong week, complete with a late recording, and now a late posting.  We may not be on our A-game in this one, but some of our releases are, well close. I guess we have between a B-C game going here.  I’ll stop rambling…just check out the new music. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/sideshow-346.m4a

In Search of Self As we get older and experience more heavy music and the many different styles, we hone in on what we like (and loathe).  We sometimes find ourselves enjoying styles we didn’t previously while outgrowing others.  For better or worse, bands do something similar with their own sound, that rarely sits well…at least while they are figuring that out. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/05/sideshow-345.m4a

Yeah, probably not.  We have some solid albums this week – including a beast of a Death Metal album (yeah, still keeping that rolling) – but we’re not sure any of them are “life changing.” However, we do discuss some albums that were game changers for us, and we invite you to discuss some of yours! https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-343.m4a

Yup, we have some more Death Metal!  And because it makes writing these things easier, I cam going to point this out until we have a week without a Death Metal act. That said, the majority of this episode actually is occupied by “core” bands, so maybe the end is nigh… https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-342.m4a

Our inadvertent exploration into various styles of Death Metal continues this week with some Scandinavian Melodic Death and some Progressive/Technical Death Metal from Canada.  We also have a Swedish band that flirts with some Melodic Death too, but I mean, they’re from Sweden. It’s like in their blood or something. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-341.m4a

This week, we have a few styles, next week we’ll have a few more, and who knows? Maybe we’ll have a few more the week after. https://thesideshowpodcast.files.wordpress.com/2018/04/sideshow-339.m4a
