Whattya Listenin' to Thursday - 7/10/08

So here we go again, late on the draw with this segment. The little spud's got me on my toes and I've had him to myself a lot this past Saturday and most of the nights this week as wifey and I juggle our external commitments and run like mad to shuttle him to meeting places and get him back home. Unfortunately yours truly fell down for the count on Tuesday night in a haze of exhaustion. All you parents out there, I salute you...

At the least, the baby and I have been watching a lot of music DVDs so foster daddy can get a sliver of his writing finished and we've listened to a lot of music together, plus I've been on a blitz of reviewing as well. If there's any front runner this, it would be the latest MSG album since it's not so hectic for the baby, and he really seems to dig it in our travels home. I'm quite impressed with the new Nachtmystium album, so much I'm not sure it's appropriate to call them black metal anymore since they've turned highly progressive with little to resemble them as blackened. Also stay tuned for a review of the Nuclear Blast comp Pagan Fire, which they did an outstanding job with. And so, without further adieu, check 'em in, peeps...

Bob's on an official tear! Of course I love that Nuclear Assault album, and I haven't heard the FU's in forever! And I told you my fruitless endeavors to track down that Klark Kent album! I GOTTA hear it! Never heard of Burn to Shine, wow

cjk and Ian, I'm behind on getting that Opeth disc, but that's just the way of the world. Not like I'm hurting for music around here, lol... cool lists, both of ya

David, your comments made me laugh, bro. All kinda strangeness in my promo boxes! A lotta goodies, though, like the new Keep of Kalessin, holy shtoikies... I was spinning Eagles of DM last night while working on a separate project, love love love that album
