Ep. 23: The Babymetal Gimmick
Justin and Alex discuss Gorguts' Pleaides Dust and Rishloo's Feathergun, two complete polar opposite albums as the previous week's assigned listening. Justin then attempts to defend Babymetal while still expressing overall frustration with gimmicks and music that can't possibly hold up over a long period of time. The new single from doom metal startups Khemmis is also discussed before deciding that May will be focused on doom metal to prepare for the litany of upcoming releases in the genre. More on that next week.
