Episode 394: Lyrically Challenged

The value of lyrics in our beloved genre is dependent on the individual. Some prefer thought provoking lyrics with a middle finger to the world. For others, they’re just something for the frontman to say during the shredding and blastbeats. For us, cool lyrics complete the total package. This time ’round we decided to test each other’s lyrical metal. We each recite some classic (and not so classic) metal lyrics while the others use their combined knowledge, and a little luck, to figure out exactly where our brethren is coming from. Or at least, what’s going through their heads, all making for an enjoyable listen. In our News, Views and Tunes, we gush over the new MEGADETH and mourn the sick infiltration of country music in our beloved genre. All the while, we crank the new ABBATH, THE CASUALTIES, introduce said Megadeth album, and feature Canuck metallers DIVINITY in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!

Episode 393: Not Just a River

In Egyptian mythology, the beautiful Hathor is the goddess of joy, motherhood, love, but also of music. Not only has she bestowed metaldom with the legendary NILE, but she also granted us an interview with the band’s founder. Karl Sanders shares his thoughts about the band’s new album, click bait, how they write new music, album artwork, how the lengthy liner notes came to be, choosing a setlist, and more solo work to come. He also describes the music industry in what is probably the best analogy ever. In our Extended Indie Spotlight, we feature Orlando’s EMPOROS with a fun interview! And to close the episode, we play a new track from THE LUMBERJACK FEEDBACK. Horns up!!

Episode 392: We’re Motoring!

When a band loses that all too familiar mouthpiece, it leaves them in a sink or swim situation. There are a handful of bands where the frontman is absolutely irreplaceable; the mighty Motörhead are one such outfit. The devastating loss of Lemmy signifies the end of a beloved run of music and mayhem. But we’re not here to mourn the loss but celebrate the legacy left behind. This time around, we discuss all things Motörhead including our first discovery, our fave albums and songs and all those magical memories in our lives courtesy of Lemmy and the boys. We’re Motoring!! Horns!!
