It took seven months, but we dragged Craig back into the podcast studio to talk about the new Anthrax and Megadeth tunes, a possible Guns n’ Roses reunion, and a bunch of other stuff. And yes, Craig also reviews some recent metal albums. Yes!

It’s a two-parter! We just love Anthrax so much that we had to spread them out over two episodes. In this one, we cover the early Neil Turbin days, all the way through Persistence of Time. Next week, we’ll go all the way from Attack of the Killer Bs to Worship Music.
Other topics covered include Black Sabbath at Lollapalooza, Metallica’s not-so-live concert movie, and anal tattoos. Mmm…yummy.
After our brief foray into hair metal, we’re back to our regularly scheduled program with…MASTADON! Now, we’re no experts, so we took this opportunity to learn a bit more about the band and play a handful of some of their great, great tunes. We hope you enjoy listening as much as we did.
We also talk about the upcoming Motorhead album, give yet another update on the Randy Blythe situation, and talk a bit about Mike McCready’s side project, Mad Season.
Speaking of Randy Blythe, if you haven’t already, please click here and sign the petition to help free him from prison.
Our last song is from a dude named Serj Tankian, called “Figure it Out.” You can find it here
Alright, things get a bit saucy in this one. Perhaps it’s because hair metal makes us want to drink ourselves stupid. Either way, by the time we’re done talking about spandex, hair spray, and really bad lyrics, we’re barely able to form complete sentences. Along the way, we talk about Motley Crue, Ratt, Lita Ford, Cinderella, Poison, and more.
Beyond that, we discuss the further developments in the Randy Blythe situation, Sebastian Bach’s recent hissy fit, and a new piece of Kiss merchandise that actually doesn’t feel like a shameless money grab. Way to go, Gene!
The last song this week is “The Wild Hunt” by Therion. You can find the song here
Thanks for checking out the first episode of Metal Up Your Ass! It’s a new Party Casino, so please bear with us as we figure things out. We’ve already made a bunch of notes for episode two and the show will flow more smoothly as we nail down the format and become more comfortable. Also, we’re not on iTunes yet, but will be in the coming weeks.
In this episode, we discuss Megadeth, Kiss, Motley Crue, Motorhead, Metallica, and Valient Thorr. You can watch that Valient Thorr video here.
We’ll cast a wider net on future episodes, as well as hitting lesser-known bands. I know we have quite a few metal fans in the DGR audience, so I encourage you to send us your suggestions.
