shit1One of the great things about living right now, in what I call the Golden Age of Metal, is all of the great music being made just about everywhere. We’ll sample some of the shit (some more later today) I should hear after the jump.

There’s so much sick music out there that it’s hard to keep up and what’s more hard to keep track. That’s why I set up the Facebook Page “Shit Brian Shields Should Hear” so people could leave recommendations and I won’t lose track of them.

Think of this like pressing random on a music player whose contents you don’t know. You might think one thing is great, that the next is literally shit. We’re all over the map here in terms of sub-genres and talent levels and professionalism but that’s half the fun. It’s not necessarily new but it may be new to you and the hope here is that you find a real gem and get some new musicians to support.

We had 22 entries for this weeks so I will do two posts of eleven each.
