Iron-Cast

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

Episode 80 - KISS - Unmasked

April 15th, 2017

I know we keep saying we're done with KISS, but we keep getting pulled back in. Join us when we at Iron-Cast go KISS Krazy once more as we delve into their 1980 release, "Unmasked". While the album quickly went Gold, it fell off the charts fast in the US but became a bit of a hit overseas. But what of this album? Is it pop-rock/powerpop gold or is it bland, toned-down pop designed not to offend the parents of the 7-year-olds who made up the majority of KISS' audience at the time? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes seventy-one to eighty.

Episode 78 - Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti, Part I

April 1st, 2017

It's taken us forever to discuss Led Zeppelin, so today we're going to make it big. Join us as we at Iron-Cast are finally going to be discussing Led Zeppelin when we delve into their 1975 release, "Physical Graffiti". Hailed as one of Led Zeppelin's finest works, "Physical Graffiti" was the first album to achieve platinum certification solely on advanced orders. But what of this album? Is it a masterpiece and is it Led Zeppelin's finest work, or is it arguably the most bloated, indulgent, ponderous and excessive double-album ever made? Tune in to find out.

Episode 67 - Elton John - Too Low For Zero - w/ Special Guest Eddie Mercury

January 14th, 2017

Join us when we at Iron-Cast go back to the 1980's by delving into Elton John's 1983 release, "Too Low For Zero". And we're bringing Eddie Mercury from Nothing but Musik back once again to abuse Greg some more. This has been seen as a comeback album for Elton, as he went back full-time with Bernie Taupin writing the lyrics, and "Too Low For Zero" was Elton's best selling album of the 1980's. But what of this album? Is it a collection of timeless pop gold, or is it a mixed bag of forgettable dated pop tunes? Tune in to find out.

Plus, we answer your emails. All of this and moose knuckles...

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 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.
