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!!

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!!

Episode 707: Howling At The Moon - interview with Deadwolff

July 15, 2022

Now here's an outfit that makes us howl! T.O.'s Deadwolff impressed us last year when their self titled EP came across our desk. The 'Wolff are a cool Canadian trio heavily influenced by the early 80s HR/NWOBHM with a modern flare. So when they recently came through town we jumped at the opportunity to turn a Wednesday night into a Saturday night! We sat down with the entire pack and go over the whys and wherefores behind the howl. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we go over the Vince Neil teleprompter "controversy". Musically, we crank some Deadwolff + new and used from Savage Master, Witchfynde, Werewolves, Molder, Temple of Void, 30 Immolated; 16 Returned and we introduce Vancouver's Thirteen Goats in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 706: We’re A Canadian Band

Episode 706: We’re A Canadian Band

July 7, 2022

As we pressed "record" on this episode, it was July 1st. Or Canada Day. Unfortunately, with the events of this year we haven't been feeling very patriotic. But all the awesome music produced in the Great White North is always reason to celebrate. So we decided to grab a stack of Canuck wax, pour a couple drinks and shoot the shit. In other words, celebrate RAM-style. We discussed a Sacrifice/Slaughter FB battle thread we created, a Vancouver radio station playing RATM on loop, Vince Neil's goofy "satanic" quote and we test each other's Metal. Musically, we crank some new and used from the aforementioned Sacrifice and Slaughter, Blasphemy, Get The Shot, Forgotten Rebels, Death Sentence, DBC, Soothsayer, Electro Quarterstaff, CiDB, and Primordial Serpent! Horns Up and Stay Healthy, Eh!
