Smash The Mic is cooking with gas. We fire through new records of Volbeat, Harbinger and Sludgehammer, while Mark gives a much-deserved shout-out to Slugdge as his Bandcamp recommendation of the week. In the news, we mourn the passing of Nick Menza (ex-Megadeth), raise both eyebrows at Jesse Hughes (Eagles Of Death Metal), shake our heads at David Draiman/Jacoby Shaddix and go cuckoo for the supergroup Hesitation Wounds. Finally, we discuss disappointing records from otherwise awesome bands.
