Episode 28: Do It Again

New Episodes

Re-recordings of songs that do not suck or offend. In light of the Scorpions new album called ‘Comeblack’ which is half covers and half re-recorded hits, it got me thinking whether or not there were other examples of this which I actually liked. I was very surprised to find out that there are exceptions to my ‘all re-recordings suck and are unnecessary’ rule, who knew? So join me as I focus on a musical topic which is damn near impossible to defend and check out bands and singers who have gone into the studio with the sheer intention of rewriting history and yet they didn’t tarnish it either.

Episodes 16-18: Gil-Logan’s Island [Bang Your Head] (Part 1)

New Episodes

The long awaited heavy metal focus episode. Just like the genre itself, we do it big here and to an excessive and decadent degree because I am joined by one of my best friends of all time, Logan. What started out as a regular episode ended up being a 3 hour plus roundtable and oh yeah we still manage to play ten songs, NO MORE!……NO LESS! I know that a section of you that listen are not big heavy metal fans but this show IS for you. Obviously if you are a fan, you should enjoy this episode immensely but this is what I like to call the handshake into heavy metal (hornshake?) and this is what I believe to be the Top 10 icons of heavy metal. Myself and Logan talk in length about what these bands mean to heavy metal and to us as people. Logan even manages to brings in a few alternate selections for those of you that are looking to take some of the more extreme next steps. I hope you enjoy this episode at even a fraction of how much I enjoyed making this one. Let me know what you think about me doing this show with the occasional special guest if you have an opinion. Afterwards, use the link directly below this and tell Logan whether or not you want him to do a ‘Birth, School, Metal, Death’ show for all of you on a regular basis. *Updated* Ok, so I get this email and site comment from friend and listener Steven (thanks Steven!) that he can’t hear the songs on Episode 16. Naturally, this concerned me so I immediately checked the podcast posting in my library and lo and behold NO SONGS! After panic mode set in I decided to just go back and retrieve the whole show, break it up into 2 parts and repost it as such. So there you go, because the technical gods just weren’t metal enough to handle a 3 hour and 20 minute show, and because I have to keep each file consistent in naming them alright blah blah blah long story long. Just enjoy the shows and know that I am not trying to pad my number of episodes, this is just the only way I could do it. Thanks for understanding and for listening and know that I appreciate you all. ENJOY THE SHOWS!

Episode 5: We’ll Do It Live!

New Episodes

Hello again to all of you! I’m (almost) live this week and so is the music meaning these are some of my favorite live musical performances of all time. Much like last week’s look at the modern bands, I can guarantee you for sure that this will be the first of many episodes of this nature. I had a lot of fun putting this list together and my apologies if I didn’t represent your favorite album this time around. Trust me, I didn’t get to all of my faves either.

If you are reading this entry then chances are your name is on the show this week. I appreciate every single one of you that take the time to listen to this show every week much less take the time to write in. The rock is strong with ALL of you and this one’s for you.
