    Episode 47 - Some Kind Of Monster (Pt. 1)

    It's Metallica's masterpiece film. Upon first viewing, you're thinking..."What happened to my band?!" Over the years of us watching 'Some Kind Of Monster,' we realized that this was an era of the band that needed to happen and we're thankful that they let the cameras in on it. It's the lowest point in their career but it's what ultimately led them to get healthier, make great records and still reign as the biggest heavy band in the world.

    Episode 46 - The $5.98 EP: Garage Days Re-Revisited

    In this episode, we tackle one of the greatest EP's ever made. In between Puppets and Justice, Metallica decided to go into the studio and record 5 of the songs that most influenced them. Recorded in only 6 days, it stands as the first time we see the band as a loose rock n' roll garage band. Clint & Ethan review the EP, read fan mail and even introduce a new segment featuring our beloved Paw Paw. Email us your feedback at metalupyourpodcastshow@gmailcom.

    Episode 45 - Cunning Stunts

    If you wrote off Metallica in the mid to late 90's, 'Cunning Stunts' is a must watch. Not only do they make sure the old school fans are happy, they absolutely destroy the songs off of 'Load.' We both agree that Metallica was in their musical prime in this era. In this episode, we burn through some facts and run through every track on this concert film/rom com...wait for it.

    Revisited #6 - Remembering Tom Petty

    What can you say about Tom Petty that hasn't already been said? Well, we don't know but we had to sit down and discuss this man's life. We have both been impacted by his music as writers, musicians and performers. Tom was easily one of the top songwriters of all time and we're forever thankful he shared his music with us for so long. Thank you, Tom.

    Episode 43 - Kirk Hammett (Pt. 2)

    You want more Kirk Hammett? You got it! In this episode, we cover a few more things we didn't get a chance to talk about last time. Mostly, Kirk's love of all things horror. From the Orion "crypt" to his current exhibit in Massachusetts. You know we love us some kirk and had to record a part 2! Oh, there just might be a brand new segment in this one...

    Episode 42 - Beyond Magnetic

    This was a nice surprise from Metallica in 2011. After playing each of these songs at the 30th anniversary shows, they gave us 'Beyond Magnetic.' Even though they were what was leftover from 'Death Magnetic,' these 4 songs could've easily been added to the album and we would've been happy about it. There's everything from classic Metallica, tempo changes, bold ideas, huge riffs to great lyrics. We hope you haven't overlooked this Metallica gem. Enjoy.

    Episode 41 - Interview With Michael Alago

    We get on the phone with our new friend Michael Alago to discuss his incredible career in the music industry, from booking at the Ritz, to A&R at Elektra, his photography but most importantly, his life long love of music. Michael worked with such artists as White Zombie, Cyndi Lauper, Nina Simone, Traci Chapman and of course, METALLICA! He signed Metallica to Elektra in 1984 and worked with them until just before The Black Album was recorded. We hope you enjoy our talk with Michael and please check out his new documentary, 'Who The F**k Is That Guy? The Fabulous Journey Of Michael Alago.'

    Episode 40 - James Hetfield (Pt. 2)

    You want more Hetfield? We'll give you more Hetfield. As our favorite member of Metallica, it's hard not to add a part 2. There's so much to say about James, someone might as well start a podcast about him. In this episode, we talk about Hetfield Honey, Hot Rods, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Tattoos and more . We also read your top 5 Hetfield riffs, and ours.
