Iron-Cast

What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 61 - KISS - Dynasty

December 3rd, 2016

How ya doin', Pee-pull?!?! Today, Iron-Cast delves once more into KISS by discussing their 1979 release, "Dynasty". Hyped as "The Return of KISS", "Dynasty" remains an enigma among KISS' catalog. But what of this album? Is it pop-rock gold or is it a half-assed attempt at a cash-grab by following the sound of the time? Tune in to find out.

Episode 60 - Metallica - Hardwired… To Self-Destruct

November 26th, 2016

Well, since everyone else is talking about it we as might as well too...
Today, Iron-Cast joins the vast choruses discussing the new Metallica album, "Hardwired... To Self-Destruct". "Hardwired" has arguably been one of the more anticipated albums released this year. But what of this album? Is it Metallica's best work since "...And Justice For All", or is it an EP's worth of material stretched out over two CDs? Or is it both? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes fifty-one to sixty.

Episode 59 - Michael Jackson - Off The Wall - w/ Special Guest Eddie Mercury

November 19th, 2016

Today, we at Iron-Cast discuss the ins and outs of Michael Jackson's 1979 smash hit album "Off the Wall". And we've got Eddie Mercury (from Nothing But Musik) back to abuse Greg some more. Join us as we ask all the important questions. Is this album pop perfection or does it have a few disco-influenced songs too many? How many Adult Contemporary staples can you fit on one album? And, perhaps the most pressing question of all, How many child sex and child abuse jokes can we fit in one episode? Tune in to find out.

Episode 58 - Bon Jovi - Keep the Faith - w/ Special Guest Chris Czynszak

November 12th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast takes a look into something almost as divisive as the 2016 US Presidential election when we delve into Bon Jovi's 1992 release "Keep the Faith". And Chris Czynszak from the Decibel Geek Podcast is back once more to come along for the ride. This album had many questions surrounding it... Is the band finally back from their long hiatus? What direction will the band go in post grunge? And, maybe the most important question, has Mr. T ever been more drunk on any other podcast before? (spoiler alert... no) Tune and find out.

Episode 57 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part VI (Bonus Track) - Siouxsie & The Banshees - Juju

November 5th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast is giving you an "Episodes from the Crypt" Bonus Track, where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. This time it is in the form or the fourth studio album from Siouxsie & The Banshees, "Juju". Released in 1981, "Juju" marked a return to guitar-based songs and became possibly the band's darkest album. But what of this album? Is it a post-punk/goth masterpiece, or is it a collection of over-rated goth-pop songs? Tune in and find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 56 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part V - Top 10 Favorite Horror Movies

October 29th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast closes out our month-long series of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. It took us 56 episodes to get there, but we're finally combining our two favorite things; theme months and our motto of "We do love our lists around here" by discussing our top 10 favorite horror movies. Are any of your favorites on our lists? Any surprises? Tune in and find out.

Episode 55 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part IV - Coven - Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls

October 22nd, 2016

Iron-Cast continues our series of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. So far, we've brought you death, goth and horror, and this week we're bringing you the occult and satanism in the form of the 1969 debut release by Coven, "Witchcraft Destroys Minds & Reaps Souls". This album and this band mark the first time that occult and satanic themes were overtly used in music. But what of this album? Is it an album where the satanic and occult themes would become an influence on hard rock and heavy metal, or is this an album where the controversial themes seemed to be more of a gimmick designed to cover-up a generic, half-assed and rushed effort? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 54 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part III - Mercyful Fate - Don’t Break the Oath

October 15th, 2016

Iron-Cast continues our series of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. So far, we brought you death and goth, and this week we're bringing you horror in the form of the 1984 sophomore release by Mercyful Fate, "Don't Break the Oath". This album has been considered a landmark album and has been one of the more influential albums for the black metal genre. But what of this album? Is it arguably the best extreme metal album ever, or is it overly produced second-rate prog metal with falsettos? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 53 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part II - The Sisters of Mercy - Floodland

October 8th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast continues our series of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. Last week we brought you death and this week we're bringing you goth, in the form of the 1987 sophomore release by The Sisters of Mercy, "Floodland". Released when the band had been left for dead after disbanding in 1985, Andrew Eldritch brought bassist and ultimate goth pin-up girl Patricia Morrison into the band and The Sisters of Mercy came back with a vengeance, releasing what has been their best-known and best-selling album. But what of this album? Is it arguably the best goth album ever made, or is it a piece of bombastic pretentious overcooked tripe? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 52 - Episodes from the Crypt, Part I - Death - Leprosy - w/ Special Guest Brody Leibfried

October 1st, 2016

Today is the start of October... so you know what that means, kids. That's right, we at Iron-Cast will be bringing you a new month long theme of "Episodes from the Crypt", where we delve into the darker side of life... death, goth, horror and the occult. And we're starting this month off right, by getting into Death's 1988 sophomore release, "Leprosy". And we're bringing along "One Star World Star" Brody Leibfriedfrom DownFall Album Reviews for the fun of it. So, what of this album? Is it the most important death metal album of all time or is it an overrated victim of the "loudness wars"? Tune in to find out.

Episode 51 - Weezer - Pinkerton (20th Anniversary Special)

September 24th, 2016

Today (24. Sept. 2016) marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Weezer's second album, "Pinkerton", and in celebration we at Iron-Cast will be delving track by track into this album. Initially reviled by both critics and fans (and also by the main songwriter Rivers Cuomo), the esteem of "Pinkerton" has significantly risen in the years after its release, and, along with Beck, has become a bit of a "patient zero" for the modern hipster trend. But what of this album? Is it one of the best albums of the 90s that deserves the accolades it now receives or is it a series of half-assed efforts attempting to justify Rivers Cuomo's seeming fixation on Asian women? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 50 - The PMRC Filthy 15

September 17th, 2016

It's Iron-Cast's 50th episode! And to celebrate we're going back to our motto of "We love our lists around here", by bringing you literally the mother of all lists. That's right, we're going to be reviewing the songs on a list made by mothers... The PMRC "Filthy 15". In 1985, the Parents Music Resource Center published a list of 15 songs that were recommended to be banned outright due to the content matter of those songs. Even though none of these songs were banned, they became a focal point of music censorship in the mid 1980s. Join us as we crack open this time capsule from 1985, have a chuckle over what was considered filthy back then and also see if these songs aged like wine or like bread. Also, we give our top moments of episodes 41-50.

If you want to know what was on the PMRC Filthy 15, you can check it out right here:

Episode 49 - Nativity in Black, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Black Sabbath - Special Request by Adam Marshall

September 10th, 2016

Join us as we at Iron-Cast (as requested by Guilty Pleasure Month Contest winner Adam Marshall) go back to the heady days of the mid 1990's when tribute albums seemed to be coming out of the woodwork, when we review "Nativity in Black, Vol.1: A Tribute to Black Sabbath". Released in 1994, "Nativity in Black" showed how Black Sabbath influenced not just rock and heavy metal, but other genres such as industrial and goth. But what of this album? Is it among the best tribute albums ever, or is it a mixed bag like pretty much every tribute album? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 48 - Off the Rails Month Bonus Track - Blondie - Autoamerican

September 3rd, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast is giving you an "Off the Rails Month" Bonus Track, where we review albums that came out of left field, by asking that musical question, "Is it possible to have an off the rails album that produced two #1 hits?", when we review Blondie's 1980 release, "Autoamerican". While one of Blondie's more successful albums, this genre-defying release (about 10 different genres on this 12 track album) seemed to quickly fall from the public eye and probably helped lead to the band's downfall. But what of this album? Did this album's use of multiple genres create an eclectic gem or was it a cocaine-fueled mishmash of a trainwreck? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 47 - Off the Rails Month, Part IV - Lou Reed - Metal Machine Music

August 27th, 2016

Iron-Cast closes out "Off the Rails Month", where we review albums that came out of left field, with what has to be the ultimate off the rails album, Lou Reed's 1975 release, "Metal Machine Music". Even though this album (a double album that has only one hour-long song) was withdrawn within a few weeks of its release, "Metal Machine Music" has become a bit of a legend. This status has been aided by the fact that Lou Reed never really stated what brought about this album. So what of this album? Is it a piece of experimental avant-garde art and proto-industrial gold, or is it a gigantic middle finger designed to fulfill a recording contract? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 46 - Off the Rails Month, Part III - Metallica - St. Anger

August 20th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast continues "Off the Rails Month", where we review albums that came out of left field, with an album that has to be a poster-child for albums that went off the rails. That's right, Iron-Cast delves into Metallica's "St. Anger". This album left so many questions upon its release... Who was the high school sophomore who wrote the lyrics? ... Why did Lars decide to play on a toy drum set? ... Should we cut them some slack because they only had 11 months to record this album? ... and How many times did Cliff Burton spin in his grave when this album was released? But what of this album? Is this a misunderstood album that goes back to the band's roots, or is this the half-assed effort of artists who have lost touch with their fans and with everything? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 45 - Off the Rails Month, Part II - Morbid Angel - Illud Divinum Insanus

August 13th, 2016

Join us for "Part Deux" of our "Off the Rails Month", where we review albums that came out of left field. Today, we at Iron-Cast continue this month by asking that musical question, "Why not review an album that was featured in our Top 5 Most Disappointing Albums episode?", when we discuss Morbid Angel's "Illud Divinum Insanus". Initially praised by metal artists before its release, this album was widely panned by fans who had waited eight years for this album. But what about this album? Did its use of industrial elements create a twisted confrontational masterpiece, or was it a failed experiment and a joke? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 44 - Off the Rails Month, Part I - KISS - Music from The Elder

August 6th, 2016

Join us as Iron-Cast brings you the first part of a new month-long theme.This time it's "Off the Rails Month", where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field. And we're kicking this month off with a doozy, delving into KISS' "Music from 'The Elder'". Bringing back Bob Ezrin, the same producer who did "Destroyer" and who had just finished Pink Floyd's "The Wall", "Music from 'The Elder'" was supposed to be the concept album that would catapult KISS the same way "The Wall" did for Pink Floyd.... but that was not to be, as fans slagged the album and it is still one of the lowest-selling KISS albums ever. But what about this album? Did it push KISS into a bold new musical direction, or did it push crap in a new and scary direction? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 43 - Iron Maiden - Powerslave

July 30th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast takes our second look into Iron Maiden's catalogue, discussing their 1984 release, "Powerslave". Building off of the success of their previous release, "Powerslave" quickly launched Iron Maiden's fame into the stratosphere. But what of this album? Is it another in a string of Iron Maiden's early 80's masterpieces, or is it an overrated piece of early prog metal? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 42 - The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

July 23rd, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast delves into a time when alternative music really was an alternative to the mainstream, discussing The Smiths' 1986 release, "The Queen Is Dead". In the thirty years since its' release, "The Queen Is Dead" has become an indie darling, and has been hailed by critics as one of the best albums of the 1980s. However, the album's reception by the public has been modest (at least as far as the US is concerned) and the album has also been a little polarizing. So, what of this album? Is it one of the best albums of the 1980s or is it an album with an over-inflated reputation? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 41 - The Ramones - Brain Drain w/ Special Guest James Gillman

July 16th, 2016

Join us as one of the winners of Iron-Cast's Guilty Pleasure Month Contest, James Gillman, sits in with us as we delve into our second look at arguably the greatest American band ever, The Ramones. This time, we're discussing their oft-maligned 1989 release, "Brain Drain". But what of this album? Is it worthy of its reputation of being a dumpster fire of an album, or are there hidden gems buried within? Tune in to find out.

Episode 40 - Queen - Queen II

July 9th, 2016

Today, we're taking our second foray into Queen's discography by looking into their second album, 1974's "Queen II". Recorded while the band members were still working day jobs, Queen created a sound on "Queen II" that would become a hallmark of the band. But what of this album? Was it an art rock masterpiece or was it the over-produced dregs of glam rock? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes thirty-one to forty.

00:0000:00

Episode 39 - Pixies - Bossanova

July 2nd, 2016

Join us as we take our first look into one of those bands that seemed to be a victim of bad-timing, Pixies. While Pixies paved the way for "alternative music" to dominate the Top 40 in the 1990s, they didn't get to reap the rewards of their efforts due to their break-up in late 1992/early 1993. Here, we delve into Pixies' third studio album, "Bossanova" (released in 1990). Recorded on the heels of their breakthrough album, "Doolittle", this album was a departure from their previous release. But what of this album? Was "Bossanova" a worthy successor to their previous breakthrough or was it a rushed and disjointed effort that took a few steps backward? Tune in to find out, only on Iron-Cast.

00:0000:00

Episode 38 - Build A Band

June 25th, 2016

Today, we at Iron-Cast give our answers to that ultimate water-cooler music question: "If you could build the perfect band using any musician (alive or dead), who would be in the lineup?" We give our selections for the following spots: lead vocals/frontman, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, drums and wildcard, and we also give honorable mentions for each spot. We also name our bands and give the title of their debut album. Will your favorites make our cuts? Tune in and find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 37 - Aerosmith - Night in the Ruts - w/ Special Guest Chris Czynszak

June 18th, 2016

Today, special guest Chris Czynszak from the Decibel Geek Podcast joins us as we discuss Aerosmith's 1979 release, "Night in the Ruts". Recorded in the wake of mediocre sales of their previous release and during a haze of drug abuse, debts and band infighting, "Night in the Ruts" is seen as a crossroads album. But what of it? Is it a return to the blues rock we had expected from Aerosmith or is it a sign of the overly commercial mediocre material that was to come years later? Tune in and find out.

Episode 36 - Depeche Mode - Violator

June 11th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast delves into the world of electronic music, discussing Depeche Mode's 1990 release, "Violator". This mix of electronic and industrial music has been hailed as the band's best album ever, and has been included in multiple "Best Albums of the 1990's" lists. But what about the album itself? Is this album a masterpiece worthy of being listed among the best albums of the 1990's or is this album a collection of easily forgotten ephemeral dance music worthy of only the Crisco Room? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 35 - Megadeth - Rust in Peace - and Nick Menza Tribute

June 3rd, 2016

With the recent death of former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza, we at Iron-Cast felt that this would be a good time to pause and reflect on the band's 1990 release, "Rust In Peace", the first, and arguably best, to feature Menza. Recorded just a few days after his passing, we take a look over this technical thrash masterpiece and pay our respects to a master drummer, here on Iron-Cast.

00:0000:00

Episode 34 - Guilty Pleasure Month, Part IV - Mr. Mister - Welcome to the Real World

May 27th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast closes out Guilty Pleasure Month, where we review an album that is a guilty pleasure of at least one of the co-hosts of Iron-Cast, with the most guilty pleasure of them all, Mr. Mister's 1985 release, "Welcome to the Real World". So, it's a guilty pleasure for at least one co-host, but what about the album itself? Is this album a piece of mid-80's power pop gold or is it a prime example why the mid-80's was the worst part of the decade? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 33 - Guilty Pleasure Month, Part III - Bananarama - Deep Sea Skiving

May 21st, 2016

We're still in the midst of Guilty Pleasure Month and the guilty pleasures just keep on coming. Today, Iron-Cast continues Guilty Pleasure Month, where we review an album that is a guilty pleasure of at least one of the members of Iron-Cast, with our third installment, Bananarama's 1983 debut release, "Deep Sea Skiving". So, is this album a piece of early 80's Euro Pop/ 60's Girl Group revival gold or is Bananarama an act that's better watched with the sound down (and your pants down too)? Tune in to find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 32 - Guilty Pleasure Month, Part II - Falco - Falco 3 - w/ Special Guest Eddie Mercury

May 13th, 2016

Join us for "Part Deux" of our Guilty Pleasure Month. If you liked our first Guilty Pleasure Month episode, then you're going to love the second one. Today, Iron-Cast continues Guilty Pleasure Month, where we review an album that is a guilty pleasure of at least one of the members of Iron-Cast, with Falco's 11.September.1985 release, "Falco 3". And we've brought in a special guest, Greg's S.O., Eddie Mercury (from Freddie Is The Champion) to join in on the fun. So, is this album a piece of 80's euro pop gold or is it one of the biggest disasters to ever happen on September 11th? Tune in to find out.

Episode 31 - Guilty Pleasure Month, Part I - Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell

May 6th, 2016

Join us as Iron-Cast brings you the first part of a new month-long theme. This time it's "Guilty Pleasure Month", where we review an album that is a guilty pleasure of at least one of the members of Iron-Cast. And boy are we starting "Guilty Pleasure Month" off with a doozy, reviewing Meat Loaf's 1977 release "Bat Out of Hell". Released with little to no fanfare, it has since become one of the highest-selling albums of all time. But what about this album? Is it a Wagnerian rock masterpiece or is it a humongous chunk of cheese with sugar dumped all over it? Tune in and find out.

00:0000:00

Episode 30 - KISS - Lick It Up

April 30th, 2016

How ya doin', Pee-pull!? Today, Iron-Cast goes KISS-Krazy once more as we delve into a time when the make-up came off and the hair spray went on, with KISS' 1983 release, "Lick It Up". But what is this album? Is it a worthy early 80's metal album and sister to "Creatures of the Night", or is it a pretender to the throne of 80's metal and a predecessor of the cock rock/hair metal KISS albums that were to come later in the 80's? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments of episodes twenty-one to thirty.

00:0000:00

Episode 29 - Top 10 Favorite Fantasy and Science Fiction Movies

00:0000:00

Episode 28 - N.W.A. - Straight Outta Compton

April 16th, 2016

Once in a while an album is released that starts a revolution; an album whose impact is still felt decades later. Like the debut albums from Black Sabbath and The Ramones, N.W.A.'s 1988 debut album, "Straight Outta Compton", belongs in the same pantheon of those albums that not only changed music but also impacted popular culture. But does "Straight Outta Compton" live up to the hype? Is it a case of a substantial album or is it a case of a couple of hits doing all of the heavy lifting? Tune in as we take a track-by-track look at the album that started a revolution and put Los Angeles on the hip hop map.

00:0000:00

Episode 27 - Def Leppard the Pete Willis Years (On Through The Night and High ‘n’ Dry)

Episode 26 - Squeeze - Argybargy

April 2nd, 2016

One of the best cult bands of all time gets its' due today as we take a track by track look at a band that should have been huge. Why Squeeze weren't major players in the music biz is a mystery, but "Argybargy" proves that if it would have been based purely on the music then Squeeze should have been one of the biggest bands in the world. Tune in and see for yourself.

00:0000:00

Episode 24 - Elton John - Honky Château

March 19th, 2016

Today we discuss the ins and outs of Elton John's 1972 smash hit album "Honky Château", and ask all the important questions. Is this soft-rock heaven or a ballad too far? How many AOR staples can you fit on one album? And, perhaps the most pressing question of all, When will Elton be playing at the Phallus of Auburn Hills?

00:0000:00
