    Episode 78 - Freeze 'Em All

    Many bands have played historic shows. Many bands have broken records, but how many bands have played all 7 continents in one year?! How many bands have played all 7 continents at all? We'll tell you. 1 band, who's record will most likely will never be broken....Mega...just kidding. In 2013, Metallica did what almost every artist on the planet can only dream of. They played Antartica! What seemed impossible, Metallica and their crew made it happen. In this episode, we break down 'Freeze 'Em All.' Possibly the most historic show Metallica has ever played. We may even have a rare visit from our beloved Paw Paw.

    Episode 72 - 1984: A Year In The Life of Metallica

    Continuing on with our 'A Year In The Life...' series with 1984. This was another huge year for Metallica. Not only did they record and release 'Ride The Lightning,' they began a relationship with Flemming Rasmussen and also took the next step toward becoming the massive metal band We all know and love by signing with Elektra. We have our friend Michael Alago to thank for that one! This was also a busy year for the boys, as they did their first headlining tour of Europe. We hope you enjoy our little trip back in time to 1984 and our first listen at Clint’s cover of “Where The Wild Things Are” from the upcoming Cover Our World Blackened, Vol. 2!

    The year was 1983. Not much happened, other than...Cliff played his first show, Mustaine was fired, Kirk was hired, Kill 'Em All was recorded, Kill 'Em All was released, Metallica's first US tour...yeah, so not much. Clint and Ethan run through all the great events of 1983 in Metallica world. This was Metallica's first really busy year as a band. It was a year that shaped the band into what we know them as now.

    Episode 70 - VH1 Behind The Music: Metallica

    In this week's episode, we take a break from our Binge & Purge episodes to talk about one of our favorite VH1 shows 'Behind The Music.' The Metallica episode is clearly at the top of our list, but whoever VH1 did a 'Behind The Music' on was a great episode. There's a lot of content in this episode that we already knew, but VH1 did a great job of cramming a long Metallica history into 45 minuets. It makes us wish someone would do a 4 hour documentary on the boys. Do you remember watching this episode when it first aired live? Let us know your thoughts at
