Iron-Cast

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

Episode 92 - Queen - A Day at the Races

August 26th, 2017

Today we close out August with our third foray into Queen's discography, this time discussing their fifth studio album, 1976's "A Day at the Races". Sandwiched between two mega-selling albums, "A Day at the Races", while still going platinum, could be seen as a bit of a disappointment when compared to "A Night at the Opera" and "News of the World". But what of this album? Was it an under-appreciated gem (or as under-appreciated as a platinum album could be), or was it a rushed effort and a misstep? Tune in to find out.

Episode 91 - Interpol - Turn on the Bright Lights (15th Anniversary Special)

August 21st, 2017

Join us as we discuss an album that celebrated its 15th anniversary this past Sunday (20 August), the debut release from Interpol, "Turn on the Bright Lights". This album has been seen as helping define indie rock in the early 2000s and has been cited as an influence on various indie rock bands. But what of this album? Was this album a modern post-punk classic, or was it a monotonous Joy Division rip-off? Tune in to find out.

Episode 90 - Amy Winehouse - Back to Black

August 13th, 2017

Join us today when we at Iron-Cast get into some soul by discussing the 2006 sophomore (and final) studio album from Amy Winehouse, "Back to Black". When it was released, the album's retro sound was quite the stand out, leading "Back to Black" to selling millions worldwide and earning multiple awards. But what of this album? Was it a 21st-century soul classic, or was it an over-hyped and overrated re-tread? Tune in to find out. Plus we give our favorite moments from episodes 81 to 90.

Episode 89 - Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers

August 5th, 2017

Today, Iron-Cast delves once more into Ritchie Blackmore's catalog when we discuss Deep Purple's 1984 reunion album, "Perfect Strangers". Deep Purple's first studio album in nine years, "Perfect Strangers" became the band's most successful album. But what of it? Was it a triumphant return and everything about what a reunion album should be, or was it a rushed cash-grab designed to cash in on the then new metal craze? Tune in to find out. Plus we read your fan mail... the saga of Big Jim continues...
