Ok guys so we had some technical difficulties on this episode with Jason’s mic going out and reverting to his computer mic without knowing.

Anyway’s we talked about a bunch of new music to check out, reviewed the Lamb of God and Behemoth show, and talked about our favorite songs to listen to while drinking, partying, having a good time.. whatever. Enjoy on a Friday or Saturday with a cold drink in your hand if possible.
