    Episode 22 - A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica (Pt. 2)

    Here we go with Part 2! The glitz, the glamour and the hammered (Looking at you, Slash). A Year & A Half Pt. 2 is the touring cycle of the black album. We get to see the good, the bad and the downright ridiculous. Lars hanging with the creepy jail chick, underwear on coat hangers, "fucking sandwiches," a ton of great live performances and much much more.

    Episode 21 - A Year And A Half In The Life Of Metallica (Pt. 1)

    This is Metallica's first time at having cameras surrounding them almost full time. Sure, we had 'Cliff Em All' to watch, but this is showing us what happens behind closed doors. Of course, behind those closed doors is what would become their biggest record to date, The Black Album. In this episode we run through the documentary and give our thoughts on things like their departure from the old sound, the addition of Jason's bass, Hetfield's progression as a songwriter, Lars' thunderous drum tracks, Kirk getting his ass kicked on The Unforgiven and of course...Bob Rock's button up shirts and turtle necks.

    Revisited #3 - On This Day (May 1st, 1988)

    May 1st, 1988. Metallica finished recording one of their classic albums, 'And Justice For All.' In this episode of Revisited, we discuss a bit of the release, production and impact of AJFA. We also dive a bit into 'Load' & 'Reload,' because on the same day in 1995, Metallica began work on what would be those records.

    Episode 19 - Death Magnetic

    Death Magnetic was Metallica's highly anticipated comeback record in 2008. Was is gonna sound like St. Anger? Black Album? No one knew until we started to see clips of songs surface online. Songs like "Cyanide" and "The Day that Never Comes" were released and praise to the gods of metal, we got another thrash record from Metallica! There's probably more thrash on this record than most. Some people wrote this record off because of the production quality, which wasn't amazing, however, we back it and the songs are great.

    Episode 18 - Kirk Hammett

    We read a few fan emails and get into The Ripper, Kirk Hammett. Kirk has undoubtably left a huge mark in Metallica history. He has memorable leads and a quiet but powerful voice in the machine that is Metallica. We can't imagine this band without Kirk. This is our love letter to Kirk Hammett. We list our top 5 Hammett solos...what are yours? Email us at We'll read your lists on a subsequent episode.

    Episode 17 - S&M

    You asked for it and you got it! S&M is one of our most requested albums to do an episode on. Easily one of metal's most ambitious live albums, it was nothing short of a hit, selling 8 million copies. Metallica took inspiration from Cliff and ventured into classical music. With Michael Kamen at the helm, all the songs we love took on new life with S&M and we're still listening to it almost 20 years later. This episode is dedicated to the memory and music of Michael Kamen. RIP.
