Geoff picks a great week to rejoin the podcast as we dig into the albums of Nevermore.  Nevermore is hard to describe, and impossible to pigeon hole.  All that matters is that this iconic band played some serious heavy metal in the 90s and 2000s and continues to influence new bands to this day.  If you have not listened to this band on the regular, you are missing out, and so were we before this episode.

It can be challenging to talk about a band with as much of a lasting legacy as Iron Maiden.  It took us years to work up the courage to listen to every album by this seminal English band.  Dan and Joe work their way through this iconic discography to see if the band still has that “X Factor” all these years later.
