About BREWtally Speaking

Two dudes, Dan and Jon, who are passionate about all kinds of music, although we mainly cover metal/metalcore bands on the show. We both LOVE vinyl, and podcasts in general.

THE PLOT IN YOU Singer “I’d Rather People Get To Know Me Through My Art Than My Shitty Facebook Posts”.

Ohio’s The Plot In You have quietly become a band causing quite the stir in the scene since coming out from the ashes of Before Their Eyes in 2011.  Multi instrumentalist/vocalist Landon Tewers has steered the 4 piece through 4 full lengths with their most recent, 2018’s Dispose, seeing the band drop the traditional metalcore sound and go more in a heavier alt rock direction. This was also the first album Tewers did not produce himself. Continue reading

NORMA JEAN Frontman Reflects On Bands Career “Bands Expecting Their Fans To Like Everything They Do Is Ridiculous”

Georgia’s own Norma Jean have had a storied career that has seen the band continue to cement its legacy as one of the most important bands in metal core despite having no original members.  Norma Jean has consistently appeased fans with seminal albums as ‘Bless The Martyr and Kiss The Child’ and ‘O’ God The Aftermath’ respectively, while still showing fans that they are still in their creative prime with their most recent outing, 2016’s adventurous ‘Polar Similar’.

Spencer Sotelo On New PERIPHERY Music “I Wanna Go Darker And Weirder.”

Periphery have quickly cemented their legacy in the progressive metal scene, some would say pioneers in the “Djent” movement, since their formation in 2005. Periphery consist of vocalist Spencer Sotelo, guitarists Jake Bowen, Misha Mansoor and Mark Holcomb and drummer Matt Halpern with bassist Adam Getgood contributing on studio albums and production duties. Since their formation Periphery has turned the heavy music world on its head with their landmark albums, with their most recent offering 2019’s ‘P4: Hail Stan’ debuting in the top 100 on the Billboard charts.

THE ACACIA STRAIN Vocalist On Nostalgia “People Are Trying To Hold Onto Something They Weren’t Even A Part Of.”

Massachusetts has a laundry list of bands that have left their mark on the hardcore/metal world and The Acacia Strain certainly have left their mark on the scene. Fronted by Vincent Bennett, the sole original member, TAS burst onto the scene with 2004’s ‘3750’.  The band practically lives on the road, and have supported several of their MA counterparts in Unearth, Killswitch Engage and traveling the globe several times over after dropping 7 albums over their 15+ year career. Their most recent offering, 2017’s ‘Gravebloom’, continues to showcase the bands penchant for an all out aural onslaught. Continue reading

KNOCKED LOOSE Vocalist Pleads With Fans “Just Please Don’t Bark At Me”

Knocked Loose might be the heaviest exported from Kentucky, and have certainly carved out a rabid fan base in the 3 short years since their debut album, 2016’s ‘Laugh Tracks’.  Touring with the likes of Beartooth, Terror, Every Time I Die and A Day To Remember and Warped Tour, fans have been clamoring for new music, and the band delivered with a ferocious ep, ‘Mistakes Like Fractures’ that should tide everyone over until a proper follow up is released.
