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

Episode 93 - Off the Rails Month, Part VI - Faith No More - King for a Day… Fool for a Lifetime w/ Special Guest Ian Wadley

September 2nd, 2017

This is the first Saturday of a new month. So you know that means kids. That's right, it's another theme month here at Iron-Cast! This month we're revisiting "Off the Rails Month", where we take a look at albums that seemingly came out of left field. And we're starting off by bringing Ian Wadley from the Rock and Metal Combat Podcast and Wadzilla World to discuss Faith No More's fifth album, 1995's "King for a Day... Fool for a Lifetime". "King for a Day" was released to mixed reviews and spotty album sales, and has since gained a reputation as a cult album. But what of this album? Was it a genre-defying triumph and one of the most underrated albums of the 90's, or was it a flawed and unfocused multi-car pileup of an album? Tune in to find out.

Episode 62 - Faith No More - Angel Dust - w/ Special Guest James Gillman

December 10th, 2016

Join us as we bring one of our Guilty Pleasure Month Contest (remember, that contest we had back in May) winners, James Gillman, back to discuss Faith No More's 1992 release, "Angel Dust". The follow-up to their 1989 breakthrough, "The Real Thing", "Angel Dust" has been called "the most uncommercial follow-up to a hit record ever", and while it was a critical success, it didn't quite achieve the same commercial success of "The Real Thing". But what of this album? Is it worthy of being named one of the best albums of 1992, or is it an over-produced collection of songs that helped spawn Nu Metal? Tune in to find out.
