Episode 718: One Big Fix - Tribute To Piledriver

September 30, 2022

We had a jam packed week! Jammed enough that we felt it was best to just dedicate the bulk of the show to basically being one big "Metal Fix". More importantly though, we lost one of the all time greats in The Exalted Piledriver. We were huge Piley fans from the get-go and late in his life considered him a friend. So we pay tribute to this great man and crank some key tracks. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we were super busy on the live front, took in the Rolling Stones "Unzipped" exhibit and gave adam levine a big FU! Musically, we crank new and used from the aforementioned Piledriver, D.R.I., KEN Mode, Zombi, Imperial Triumphant, Metalucifer, Vile Creature and Dogs With Jobs! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Episode 717: Between The What And Rust

September 22, 2022

The #1 topic on the lips and minds of Metalheads right now is the new Megadeth album. The majority of the sentiment so far seems to be positive. A return to the glorious 80s Megadeth sound and swagger. So after giving "The Sick, The Dying...And The Dead" a few spins, we made our selves ready to give our thoughts. Our verdict...Sorry, no spoilers. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we crank some new and used from Manilla Road, Jag Panzer, Dead Kennedys, Driller Killer, Sonja, Skeletor, Cobra The Impaler and introduce Hell Diablo in our "Indie Spotlight"! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 714: Momentous - interview with The Manitoba Loud Music Awards

Episode 714: Momentous - interview with The Manitoba Loud Music Awards

September 1, 2022

As musical connoisseurs, the live front is where we're most at home. Live shows or concerts have some traditional moments that get us pumped and raise the hair on our necks. Right before we wreck them. There's a reason the audience erupts once the lights go down, for example. So we go a list of moments that make the concert experience so momentous. As well, we learn that we are nominated for "Ambassador Of The Year" in the Manitoba Loud Music Awards. So we felt it was appropriate to give a few moments to MLMA committee member Denny Ferguson to give us all the whys and wherefore behind these awards. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we're stoked for the return of CREEM magazine and have a bit of 80s sitcom talk. Musically, we crank some new and used from Revocation, Besieged, Overdrive (Swe), Conflict (UK), Bewitched, Solanum and Slugcrust. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 713: New and Used

Episode 713: New and Used

August 25, 2022

When it comes to the live front, music of the tried and true has been outdrawing the new stuff for quite awhile now. But now "Classic" tunage has recently overtaken the new stuff at the sales counter too. So this week we do a deep dive investigation into the whys and wherefores and try to figure it all out. In our "News, Views, and Tunes",  we dissect a rather polarizing Alice Cooper quote and some crank tunage from Sigh, Bat, Critical Defiance, Mvll Crimes and introduce Lethbridge (!!) trad metallers Tyrants Of Chaos in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 712: Nuthin’ But A Number

August 18, 2022

"Time flies when you're having fun." That's an old adage we learned as young 'uns. But it gets more and more trve once you get to our age. A lot of key albums, band formations and significant events happened literally decades ago now. But honestly a lot of these seem like they happened just "a few years ago" now. Namely, the first minus Ozzy/Dio Sabbath album dropped 39 years ago. And the last new (material) from Razor came out 25 (!) years ago! Whew! Is that a gray hair??!! In our "News, Views and Tunes", we define "mandatory" with Metal and crank new and used from Grave Digger, Bloodfeast, Harlequin, Cirith Ungol, Resistance, and Volcano! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Episode 711: Stoked, Chuffed, Dodgy, Etc

August 11, 2022

Who says Heavy Metal isn't educational??!! Yes, the lyrical content has delved into social and political issues over the years. But they've also had us listeners reaching for the dictionary and introduced a number of phrases and expressions. So this time 'round we share a (very condensed) list of said words and expressions that first came to our attention thru the Power of Metal! We're so "stoked"! In our "News, Views and Tunes", we hit the live front and crank new and used from Toxik, Bell Witch, (Scars Of) Atrophy and Hatriot. Halloween comes early as we introduced Montreal's The Occult in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Redefining Darkness recording artists Detherous recently returned to town. The tour was suppose to be in support of a brand new album. But alas... Undeterred, these good Canadian boys still killed it every night and were eager to chat. We caught up with vox/axe Damon MacDonald.

Episode 709: The Pantera Panic

Episode 709: The Pantera Panic

July 27, 2022

The Numero Uno topic of discussion on every Metalhead's mind right now is the controversial issue of the Pantera reunion. It seems to be a very polarizing issue. One side is claiming "No Brothers, No Pantera". While the other is looking forward to it. So we decided to go over all the ifs, ands or buts. Which includes if this is a "tribute" act or not and the participation of Zakk Wylde and Charlie Benante. Also, following up on last episode, The Satanic Panic seems to be alive and well. RAM alum Casket Robbery were taken to task by a Tennessee church. Where's Geraldo? In our "News, Views and Tunes", we discuss Alice Cooper swapping axe persons and crank new and used from CroMags, Necrophagia, Wake, Nicolaus Cage Fighter, the aforementioned Casket Robbery, Dead Head, Hulder and introduce Cleveland's Asault in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!
