mixtape: midsummer metalcore

MPHimage_1I love alliteration, the same way that I am a sucker for lots of other literary techniques. Midsummer Metalcore was as much a show descriptor as it was abuse of alliteration just because I could.

This week I wasn’t exactly being lazy about show programming for MPH but it certainly was not far from such an experience either. There wasn’t as much free time as I was anticipating to review music, research facts on some of the bands and basically put together the rest of the show ideas as I would normally dedicate to things.

After seeing Car Bomb in Delaware (I’m in Delaware?!) the other weekend I was in a very technical hardcore kind of mood. Since the last few shows have skewed significantly more metal and since Big Rob covering has made a point of hitting up some interesting hardcore, metalcore and punk roots subbing for me with Hard Corps 101 I thought I’d bring things around on MPH for the show tying all of this together.

I’m reminded in doing this how short an hour long show actually is because I was forced into cutting several tunes from the list including a couple of requests. They will make it in a future episode of the show and the shout out’s I could get in are in the MP3 podcast linked after the jump.

      Thanks Jesse, I enjoyed broadcasting that evening, though, I’m sure my neighbors didn’t enjoy the scream along that went with it every time the mic was muted!
