Episode 169: Vapor Transmission by Orgy

Fall is upon us and as the leaves change and the temperature drops, it only makes sense for Roach Koach to do an episode all about Orgy’s second album, Vapor Transmission. We talk Lorin’s college R.A. with his brutal Orgy assessment, discuss if Orgy is just making music for fashion shows, discuss the horror that is the song “Strokin’”, and decide if Orgy deserves a spot in the Nu-Metal Canon. As well, we talk new Slipknot and go over Linea 77 feedback.
