We counted down our top 15 metal albums of 2017 and split it into two episodes to make it a little easier to digest. Here’s part 1 featuring albums 15 through 8, followed by an interview with Nate Garrett of Spirit Adrift who released an album Called “Curse of Conception” that is hitting a lot of end of the year lists. We talked a lot about that album so be sure to check out the interview and listen check out the album if you haven’t yet. Stay tuned for part 2 for the rest of our list as well as our listener list coming soon! We are going to wait to publish our full lists until the episode has been out for a bit to keep it a surprise but feel free to message us and ask us for it if you need it.

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. Instead of getting rid of the ep we decided to edit it the best we could and this is the result! Hopefully its not too bad and dont worry we will be back to normal quality next time. 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.
