    Fo this installment of Metal Tales From The road, I (Ethan) am joined by long time Metallica fan, Allan Feildel! Allan has been on the ride since 1988, seen 6 shows and recently attended the show in Saskatoon. We get to know Allan a bit, hear his Metallica story, break down the set list, why cold medicine and beer might not be the best combo (or is it?!) and Allan let's us in on how Metallica has been an important part of his marriage. Awwwww! Thank you again to Allan, for taking time out of his schedule to give us a recap of the Saskatoon show!

    Long time supporter of the show and Patron, Alex Finney, joins us (well, Clint) to recap the Lincoln, NE show. We thought "No Leaf Clover" was a treat (because it was, of course!)

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.

    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 metalupyourpodcastshow@gmail.com.

In this episode, we examine the famous Seattle show from August 29th & 30th in 1989. The energy from this era is unmatched. They were touring '...And Justice For All' and completely unstoppable.

    Garage, Inc. is possibly the finest covers album to grace our ears! We love that the boys not only included covers they had done in the past, but also went into the studio with Bob Rock to record an entirely new collection of songs. Completed in only two weeks after the Poor Retouring Me tour, this is Metallica at one of their undisputed peaks. From classics like Die, Die My Darling and It's Electric to newer jams like Nick Caves' Loverman, we can't get enough of Garage, Inc!

    Episode 58 - Pushead (Brian Schroeder)

    If you own any Metallica merchandise chances are you own a Pushead design. From shirts like Harvester Of "Sorrow," "Damage Inc.," "Sad But True," and "Fixxxer," to home video releases like Cliff Em All and A Year And A Half all the way to the album artwork and logo for St. Anger, Pushead has designed more for Metallica than any other. The list is enormous and continues to grow today. He helped make an iconic brand for Metallica and his designs stand the test of time.

    Episode 57 - Anniversary Party Recap

    First off, thank you to everyone who has supported this podcast through our first year! To celebrate, we threw a "Metallica Night" at one of our local bars here in Nashville, called The Cobra. We packed out the place with friends, new listeners, OG listeners and even had some folks play Metallica trivia and name that riff on stage. This episode is a run down of a lot of stuff that happened that night, with segments of trivia and name that riff. For those that wanted to come, we hope this makes you feel like you were there. Here's to another year!

    Episode 50 - Hardwired...To Self-Destruct (Pt. 2)

    It's been just over a year since 'Hardwired' was released. We think it's time to give this album another episode and why not bring back everyone's favorite guest co-host, Paul Moak! We've had a year to absorb 'Hardwired' and our thoughts have changed quite a bit, since last January, when we released Part 1. What are your feelings about this album, one year later?

    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.

    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.

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.

    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.

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.

    Revisited #5 - 1991 VMA's

    Do any of you remember what a badass performance this was? Metallica played the 1991 MTV VMA's along side Mariah Carey, Vn Halen, Poison (Ugh) and many more. In our opinion, they dominated the stage that night. It was only a few weeks after the release of The Black Album and they were on fire, having "Enter Sandman" be a new song t the time. You could see the excitement and feel the energy they had for this new era.

    Episode 38 - Reload

    It's finally here! This week we're talking about one of Clint's favorite Metallica records...RELOAD! We talk about the good, the bad, the weird and so much more. Originally intended to be a double album with Load, Reload stands on it's own as one of the great Metallica records. The guys had more time in the studio with this batch of songs and we think it shows. If you wrote this record off a long time ago, we encourage you all to sit down with it once again and give it some much needed time. Enjoy.

    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.

    We've got our very first guest! This week, Paul Moak (Producer/Musician) joins us to discuss Bob Rock. Was Bob the best thing for Metallica? Did Bob help ruin Metallica? We're a fan of (almost) all the Bob Rock era records. If it weren't for Bob, we wouldn't have the near perfect solo on The Unforgiven, as well as other Metallica songs that are now classics. Thanks to Paul for giving us his insight on what it's like to be a producer and for sharing his love of Metallica with us.

    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.

    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 (Pt. 1)

    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.

    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.

    Episode 15 - No Life Til Leather (Demo)

    Sure, there were a few demos before this, but 'No Life Til Leather' is what got the ball rolling with Metallica in the early days. This was the demo that got into the hands of Johnny Z, got them signed and eventually led them to get in the studio to record 'Kill Em All.' Although the songs didn't change much from the demo (other than The Mechanix), it's a great representation of what was happening in the early 80's thrash metal scene. Plus, Muscatine's leads on this? Come on...He rips. In this episode we read some fan mail and discuss the cassette that started it all.

    We've all asked them. "What if Cliff didn't die?" "What If Dave wasn't fired?" "What if?!" We asked and you responded...in full force! In this episode, Clint and Ethan answer all your "What If?" questions. There were so many good ones. If we didn't get to yours, don't worry, this is definitely a topic that deserves a part 2.

Although not the smoothest show they've ever played, it began the on stage journey to the Metallica we know and love today.

In this episode, we dig into Flemming as a producer, engineer and discuss what it would be like if he produced another Metallica record in the future. Also, if you miss our church giggles...well, listen for yourself.

    Episode 12 - Through The Never

    It's one of Metallica's best looking and sounding concert films, it got good reviews and somehow tanked at the box office. Through The Never wasn't a smash for the band but this is up there in quality and should not be skipped over. Despite some cheesy moments (Robert & the wall of CGI bass amps), we back this film and sit down to run through it, chronologically. The ups, the downs and in betweens. We also read fan mail at the top of the show, as this will become a regular thing.

    Episode 11 - Jason Newsted

    He was the last to audition for Metallica to fill the void that was Cliff Burton. He became a fan favorite and didn't bother living up to Cliff, but carved out his own legacy in Metallica history. That's why we love Jason Newsted so much! In this episode we briefly examine Jason's music history and discuss the huge impact he had in Metallica, despite climbing uphill the whole time.

    Episode 10 - 30th Anniversary Shows

    30 years of Metallica! 4 Shows at The Fillmore in San Fransisco! Are you kidding? We only got to witness these historic Metallica concerts on YouTube and they were glorious. Metallica stopped at nothing to make sure anyone involved with Metallica was in attendance or on stage. Mustaine, McGovney, Ozzy, Danzig, Newsted...just to name a few. It was a true fan friendly event. Clint and Ethan examine all four nights of these shows, go through all the setlists and imagine what it was like to be in attendance. We can only hope for some 40th anniversary shows and hope we can be there, as 5th members.

    Revisited #1 - The Grammys, Gaga & U.S. Tour

    From time to time, we are going to try and cover current event news and release it immediately. To start, let's discuss the Grammy performance by Metallica & Lady Gaga. Hetfield's mic not working, Lady Gaga basically killing it, Hetfield tossing his guitar, who's fault was it and who got an earful last night? Despite the glitches, it was good to see the boys wearing it out up there and Hetfield making the most of the situation. We got some great moments between him and Gaga, for sure.

    Episode 8 - The Black Album

    Our longest episode yet! I mean, are we surprised? It's The Black Album! It's one of the best selling albums of all time and the best selling of the last 25 years. This is the album that would end up changing Metallica for years to come, their first with Bob Rock, arguably their best sounding album and would go on to never sell less than 1000 a week...to this day! Clint & Ethan dive deep into this record and it's easily one of their favorites. Love it or hate it, The Black Album has made one of the biggest marks in music history.

    Episode 7 - Hardwired...To Self-Destruct

    This is our first remotely recorded episode. As you may know, we travel for a living in music and we've finally had to record outside of Nashville. In this episode, we're in Detroit and Miami discussing Metallica's latest release, Hardwired...To Self-Destruct. It's strange to dive into a record that's only been out a couple months, but we're so excited about it that we just had to. We go through every track, the lack of Kirk's influence, the return of James' classic vocals, the step is Greg Fidelman the new Bob Rock and so much more. Feel free to send us your thoughts on Hardwired by emailing us at metalupyourpodcastshow@gmail.com.

    Episode 5 - Cliff Burton

    How do you sum up Cliff in an episode? We have no idea, but we managed to do our best in 57 minutes. Cliff is a huge reason Metallica evolved, as they did, in the early years. We've talked about it a lot. It makes a lot of sense that Metallica went the musical route they did, post Cliff. Love it to hate it, we believe Cliff was a huge part in Metallica becoming the band you old school fans don't love. We both agree that Cliff was (and still is) the only band member that was (musically) looked up to, outside of the other three. One thing we can all agree on is that without Cliff, there's no Metallica.

    Episode 4 - Master Of Puppets

    Clint & Ethan dive into (arguably) the best Metallica album. It's definitely Ethan's favorite. 1986 was THEE year. The record was released, Metallica supported Ozzy for 5 months, Metallica had their first gold record, The Big 4 and Alcoholica were coined, Cliff left us and we got Jason. Even if you weren't a Metallica fan in '86, this was one of the most important years of the band's history. We run through some facts about 'Master Of Puppets," a track by track breakdown...and so much more!
