Could it…could it be? It is! Prepare your assholes! We’re here to stick some metal up there!
Yes, after a long winter nap, we awaken to stumble our way through a new episode. After finding our feet, we talk about 4arm, Enslaved, Motor Sister, Game of Thrones and attempt to answer the age old question: just how big of a douche bag is Lars Ulrich? We wrap it up by solving the riddle of why music just ain’t that great no mo’.
Hell’s Bells! We’re ringing in the new year by looking back at the best metal albums of 2013. And like any new year celebration worth a damn, things slowly spiral into a drunken mess. Craig takes off his top, John weeps in the corner, and at some point Moe shows up and takes advantage of both of them. It’s chaos.
But somehow, we still manage to talk about Axl Rose being a great tenant, Dan Spitz weighing 100 pounds soaking wet, and what’s under Manowar’s loin cloths.
In this episode, we marvel at the beautiful absurdity of Steel Panther. I mean, come on. How can you not shake your head and laugh when you hear a title like “It Won’t Suck Itself”? Is it juvenile? Sure. But if you were around for the 80s hair metal scene, you know that Steel Panther’s parody isn’t far off the mark.
Sadly, it’s not all fun and games this week. Our news is a bit on the somber side as we discuss the final chapter in the Randy Blythe trial, and bid fairwell to Clive Burr of Iron Maiden.

It’s Testament time! We decide that if there was a “Big Five” of thrash, Testament would fit right into that spot, discuss Diamond Dave’s recent rant about the dysfunctional clusterfuck of the band known as Van Halen, and give you a quick review of the Soundgarden concert. Quick spoiler: it was…okay.
Beyond that, John subjects Craig to a sports-themed Metal Or Not? And there are probably some butt jokes in there somewhere too.
