Oops, I Missed It AgainAug 12, 2014
I've been terrible about this. This'll be short and sweet, and I'll retreat to my corner of shame.
Next week will be cool, because Clashed Attitudes host Jaak will be coming in and co-hosting Metal Music Machine. It'll be a great crossover night examining the intersection of punk and metal.
Now let's go over the last few weeks' playlists!
We gave away tickets to see Primitive Man and Hexis, which was an awesome show (particularly Hexis, who blew us all away with their first US show). So I hope all you lucky ticket winners enjoyed the show as much as I did!
Track of the week is Split My Tongue by Schammasch, a band who I had never heard of, but this track immediately jumps into my year-end list. Great sludgy awesomeness.

Just a simple, great show. Celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Metallica's second album and thrash class Ride the Lightning. Track of the week is Surf Squid Warfare by Alestorm, because it's a pirate-metal song about time travel, drinking, and fighting aliens and sea monsters. What could be better?

Misery Index “CROSS TO BEAR” from The Killing Gods on Season of mist
Cool set this week. The back half focused all on Thrash Metal, and really I should've devoted an entire show to it, because despite covering good ground, it feels like I didn't do this massive subgenre justice. Oh well, maybe I'll revisit it later.
Track of the week is Go Skate! (Possessed to Skate '97) by Suicidal Tendencies. I forgot how much I loved this band, and how much I love Rob Trujillo (currently doing his best take on Cliff Burton's classic basslines with Metallica) as a bassist. Great thrashy, punky jam full of slap bass and radness. If you like that, you'll probably like this week's show.
