The following page have changes:


As always, on or around the 1st of every month, I will be posting a ZIP file with songs for the upcoming month with ALL specifics deleted from the tags, so unless you already know the band, there is NO information regarding each track.

During the following month, I will post reviews for those bands and link the tracks to the review so you can associate the two together. This way you can listen to a new song/band and have little-to-no bias. Below, I have re-posted the December mp3 mix that is used for this month's reviews.

The new OMSB mp3 Mix #1 features only. Included are:
*-* obscure, dirty, American screamo with multiple vocalists not unlike Khayembii Communique
*-* a band with one of the most sought after box sets and really long ass songs
*-* some insanely At The Drive-In sounding stuff
*-* a band with zero ties to terrorism that played some of the most influential post-metal/post-hardcore of all time
*-* the closest thing to Panthers that you'll ever hear


Any bands/labels that are interested in having their stuff reviewed, please email with "Open Mind Saturated Brain" as the subject. Please keep in mind that I don't review everything, just what jives with the blog. I will, however, listen to everything you send me. I would recommend emailing with an idea for a song/album premiere 2 months prior to that song/album release date for a much stronger chance at being reviewed on this blog. Bands that have already had their discography reviewed can also submit new albums for review if they include song/album premieres.
