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

We're getting closer to the main event, and this time we're featuring a steel cage grudge match when we delve into the debut albums from Metallica ("Kill 'Em All") and Megadeth ("Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!"). What do we think of these albums? 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 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.
