    Episode 35 - Quebec Magnetic

    Quebec Magnetic is one of Metallica's finest live releases. Filmed over the course of two nights, Metallica gives us a Death Magnetic heavy setlist with some classics and a few deep cuts mixed in. The band is tight, energetic and rarely slows down. In this episode, we burn down the setlist, discuss different guitars the guys use and give you a preview of our upcoming Metallica covers EP, which you'll be able to get through Patreon in the future.

    Episode 34 - Robert Trujillo

    Robert is no stranger to Metallica these days, especially that he is now their longest running (crab walking) bass player. He had some huge shoes to fill by replacing Jason, but has done it so well and brought his own flavor to the band. Robert is an insanely accomplished musician with an impressive resume in his past. We love Robert in Metallica and couldn't wait to get this episode out! In this episode, we run through the history of Robert's bands, his studio work, his roll in Metallica and so much more.

    Episode 29 - Lars Ulrich

    Take a trip with us to Denmark, as we discuss all things Lars! We get into so many things about our favorite (Recently Knighted) Danish friend. Without Sir Lars, there would be no Metallica. Who knows if the metal genre would have even taken off without Lars' help and we thank him for that. Love him or hate him, he is just as important to Metallica as James' songwriting.
