Smash the Mic hits episode thirteen. Unlucky for some? Lucky for you, this week we have lots to get through. We cast our eyes and ears on the new new records by Devildriver, Eternal Sleep and Tides From Nebula and Mark brings UK prog/tech metallers Brutai to the table for Bandcamp Recommendation of the Week. In the news, we have Belphegor responding to an attacker, new music from Thrice, Chino Moreno‘s new side-project Saudade and some hip-hop black metal from Second to Sun. Yes, really. Finally, we finish things off with the question “what does progressive music mean to you?”, featuring a guest appearance by fellow Broken Amp writer Nick Berry.
