Not much to talk about except NDWS stopping by and the Artist of the Week. The show was so disorganized and spaz-tastic (I HATE CD 3) this week, yet you guys seemed highly amused. I don't get it, but as the title suggests, as long as you all liked it I guess.

The two founding members of NDWS, Nick and Craig, stopped by to thank the fans for their support, and ass pictures. And even gave a special live performance, a first for TR!!! Then they gave us 5 minutes of dead air.

Immediately afterwards, we played our Artist of the Week, Hanzel und Gretyl, who immediately generated the highest response ever for the feature! We overall played 4 of their songs (if you count the intro track), to high praise and people demanding to know more information about them. Well, as requested, here ya go! A full album review of their CD, ScheissMessaiah and links to all things Hanzel und Gretyl. Enjoy!

When I first saw the album cover for this, I was a bit discouraged. See, Hanzel und Gretyl is the only non-Japanese Artists of the Week that I was a fan of way before hand. Seeing this was a bit of a shock for me. I am used to the Hanzel und Gretyl with all the sci-fi goofy-ness and crazy techno jargon. I was afraid, after the first glance of this album art, that they sold out and went black metal. Then I saw the title and releif washed over me. They just took on a different theme (religion as it would seem) and decided to grow a bit, but the essential Hanzel und Grtyl is still there: inovative music filled with ironic parodies.

This album, to the delight of many of you out there, is much much heavier than their past work, and seems like a progression from Uber Alles (their last CD). It ditches most of the electronic beats and synth for the pounding drums and heavy guitars, which they started doing with Uber, but it comes full force here in Sheissmessiah. The album starts with a speech seemingly made by an enraged televangelist, warning his audience about the reprocussions of lust. Immediately, you are launched into one heavy guitar riff followed soon by the driving drums and riviting vocals that simple make you wanna smash stuff, especial since the only recognizeable word in the song for most people is "fire". Yes, a good portion of the album is in German, which means alot of the jokes will be over many people's heads. However, that should not detract you for the incredible aray of heavy hitting songs throughout the album. The HuG of old still exisits in the song "Burning Bush", with its vocal samples, dancable beats, and one line chorus that will have you chanting over and over again "BURN THAT MOTHAFUCKA!!". If you wanna hear it (Don't bother requesting it. Too many fucks) it's the featured song on the Myspace this week! While all of the songs on this CD are incredibly awesome, my favorite is by far "Hellalujah". While it would be easy for me to describe what makes this song so amazing, I'd rather you guys just request it on the show again so you can hear it for yourselves. As I said to one fan "Christianity never rocked so much!". This album comes HIGHLY reccomended from me to you out there looking for one refreshing heavy metal extravaganza. This album, simply put, rocks. Best of all, unlike every other Artist of the Week, you can easliy find this at Best Buy!!! You must buy this CD, I'm serious! If my reccomendation is not enough for you, take this under advisementr: These guys became the Artist of the Week to generate the highest response out of any band to be held in this spot. To give you an idea of what I am talking about, after playing the first song, in 1 night, they generated more requests than Dir en grey has in the past 3 weeks! Food for thought. Once again, BUY SHEISSMESSIAH!!!!!
