Episode 12: Pantera

This episode, Mike and Alex do the unthinkable and discuss all of Pantera’s albums. All of them. That’s right, even the glam stuff. No one likes talking about this part of the band’s career—and it should stay that way. We regret every second we dedicated to these sparkling abominations. Also, Pantera became a really good band later on, but you’ve probably heard that before. Closing track: “Slaughtered” from Far Beyond Driven (1994) Mike’s Picks: Vulgar Display of Power (1992) — Best...


Episode 11: The Misfits

Happy Halloween, folks! Mike and Alex felt that there was no better way to celebrate this morbid holiday than by discussing The Misfits. While they agree that Danzig-era Misfits was truly special, they almost come to blows when discussing the 90s lineup—much like every member of the Misfits during that time. Mike’s Picks: Earth A.D.

Episode 9: Body Count

If you’re wondering why in God’s name we would possibly be covering this band so early in our podcasting career, it’s because this is the first artist requested by a listener.
