Episode 242– You can’t build your life around a moment, because a moment doesn’t last Topic Brad’s Audio Diary Part 1 MUSIC ON EPISODE 242: Why+the+Wires – FULL MUSIC REVIEW SOON Imperial Triumphant -Before I even brought this up on my mp3 player I knew this was going to be brutal, growled metal.

If you like Staind, POD and the like, you’ll enjoy this. Heavy rock almost metal bed laid under the growled/screamed vocals until Little Brother comes in fresh from the Panic at the Disco listening party to change the whole ambiance of the show. “Let your little brother sing a little in your band” your mom proded you at the beginning.
