Episode 695: Nuked Us All

April 5, 2022

Mr. Dan Lilker recently announced that Nuclear Assault will be hanging up their leather spiked boots soon. Our interest in the outfit actually predates NA themselves as Lilker was the bassist on the Anthrax debut. So we've been a fan of the NY crew right from the get go. With this announcement, we felt it was a good time to pay tribute to NA. We go over all our fave music and moments and the multiple connections to this very show. Thx Guys! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we make an amazing vinyl discovery and make some Bandcamp purchases live on the air. Musically, we crank new and used from Skull Fist, Brutal Truth, Haunt, Blurring, Against Evil, Unsanitary Napkin and, of course some Nuclear Assault. In our "Indie Spotlight",  we introduce North Carolina's Voraath! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 694: Evening With Bruce Bruce

March 31, 2022

The legendary Bruce Dickinson is a man of many talents. Most noted for his work in Iron Maiden, Dickinson has shown time and again that he's so much more. So with such a storied life, Brucie Boy would obviously have a lot of stories to tell. Thus his spoken word tour. With the date in our area come and gone (with memories fully implanted in our brain), this week we're doing a deep dissection of all the fantastic stories from Mr. Bruce Bruce. He left no stone unturned and had the building laughing and cheering. All without a single instrument or song. Just a bunch of Bruce. Next up, Big Hank. In our "News, Views and Tunes" with discuss our first shipment from the Metallica Vinyl Club and Geddy Lee's acting debut. Musically, we crank some new and used from Satan, English Dogs, Centinex, Trespass, Thunderstick, 200 Stab Wounds and introduce LA thrashers Ravage Realm in our "Indie Spotlight".

Episode 692: Gimmicks

March 16, 2022

"Gimmicks" in the Metal World are nothing new. Some more recognizable examples are the KISS/King Diamond warpaint and Iron Maiden's mascot Eddie. But there are a variety of bands that have their own ideas of trademarks that we may not even take notice. For instance, Kerry King's arm spikes, Corpsegrinder's neck and various  guitarist's signature designs. So we do a deep dive into all these. You'll be surprised with what we came up with. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we geek out over "The Batman" and the Elvira/Munsters news. Musically, we crank new and used from Eric Wagner (RIP), Midnight, Vulcano, Government Issue, Druid Lord, Spill Your Guts, Fright and introduce Canuck thrashers Hyperia in our "Indie Spotlight"!

Episode 690: What Is Metal?

Episode 690: What Is Metal?

March 3, 2022

On the surface, the question "What is Metal?" might seem a bit "Huh?" But the idea of exactly what Metal is can be as diverse as our beloved genre itself. Of course when thinking of Metal we think of the driving beats of the skins, the face melting riffs, the thunderous bass and the thought provoking (or just entertaining) lyrics. Metal (and punk/hardcore as well) is more than what you hear when you press "play". It's an idea, a community, and an attitude. This time around we dissect it all. And bathe in it's blood. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we crank tunage from Holocaust, Possessor, Sepulchral, Warrior Path, Elizabeth, Neptune Power Federation and introduce LA hardcore bashers Vintage War in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Episode 689: Super Duper Show

Episode 689: Super Duper Show

February 24, 2022

So America just had their big annual sportsball extravaganza - The Super Bowl. Did your team win? Do you care either way? The half time show seems to capture the attention of fans just as much as the big game. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to cater to the Metalheads/Punks. But dare to dream. Now obviously the Dying Fetus' and Pig Destroyers of the world won't be playing the half time show anytime soon. But there are a number of HR/HM bands that are household names enough to represent our beloved genre. So we dove into our choices. And came to the conclusion that Joe Average football fan needs some more Gwar in their lives. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discover we've been immortalized on vinyl. And musically, we crank some new and used from Anvil Bitch, Malignant Altar, Archagathus, Thunderor, Embryonic Autopsy and we introduce Chi-Town's Burned in Effigy in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 688: Crushing It

Episode 688: Crushing It

February 17, 2022

Traditionally we dedicate this episode to our annual Valentine's Day Massacre. But being minus any female co-hostesses this year, we just weren't feeling it this year. We still want to do something to celebrate this special day though. It's safe to say that everyone in their youth goes through that whole "crush" phase. Those special artists that we had those special feelings for that go beyond just enjoying the tunes. So in the spirit of VDay, we figured we'd share some our crushes from our early daze (not surprising we name two Runaways). As well, we share some stories from when we were face-to-face with some of these objects of our youthful affections. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we crank some new and used from Allegaeon, Abysmal Dawn, Body Void, Heir Apparent, Kat and Life Sentence. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 687: Johnnies On The Spot

Episode 687: Johnnies On The Spot

February 10, 2022

The Metal World recently lost two important figures named Johnny. Mr. Johnny "Z" Zuzula was the founder/owner of the mighty Megaforce Records. The upstart label released a number of excellent albums that helped shape us as fans of our beloved genre. We also lost actor Howard Hessemen. For our more mature listeners, Hessemen will be best known as "Doctor" Johnny Fever on the awesome "WKRP In Cincinnati" sitcom aired from '78-'82. The Doctor was a major influence on the creation of Radioactive Metal. So this week we thought it would be best to pay tribute to these Johnnies. First with discussing some of our fave Megaforce albums/songs. As well, we reminisce some of our fave episodes/moments on the mighty "...K.R.P." In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss Meatloaf (RIP) and menstrual cycles(!), the whole Rogan/Young spotify thing, and the new/classic Slaughter album! Musically we crank new and used from Exciter, MOD ClassicTK, Pupil Slicer, Abhoria, Solicitor, the aforementioned Slaughter, and introduce Swearwolf in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!
