    Episode 48 - Death By The Dad (with Chad Gailey)

    Episode 48 - Death By The Dad (with Chad Gailey)

    Metal festivals: we all hate them. From Psycho Las Vegas to Festum Carnis, these cursed gatherings serve as the bane of every true banger's existence. In this episode, the Dads sit down with Chad Gailey (Necrot, Mortuous, Palace of Worms, Scolex, Atrament, Phrenelith, etc etc etc etc) to get to the bottom of every Parenthead's nightmare scenario: the dreaded FEST. 
    Music:
    Nunslaughter, "Death By The Dead"
    Necrot, "The Blade"
    PS Shelby was wrong, there are 4 Nunslaughter full-lengths, not 2.

    Episode 47 - Like Father Like Son (with Calvyn & Ezra)

    Episode 47 - Like Father Like Son (with Calvyn & Ezra)

    The Dads convene for the very first time on DMD with their own offspring Calvyn and Ezra, resulting in a horrific mishmash of bad movies, bad jokes, dad jokes, Jar Jar Binks, Wilford Brimley, and Gigli Allin. Stereotypes are reinforced, iron is pumped, and topical wisdom is dispensed in this thrill-a-minute crash course in parenting gone wrong!
    Music:
    Extremity, "Like Father Like Son"
    Manowar, "Carry On"

    Episode 45 - Rot To Dad (with Nick Katich)

    Episode 45 - Rot To Dad (with Nick Katich)

    In today's installment, Aesop and Shelby are joined by their pal Nick Katich (the morbid wizard behind the one-man black metal juggernaut Palace of Worms) to wax moronic about weird Finnish death metal, mispronunciations, selling out, cashing in, fighting The Man, and "sounding like Autopsy". Did you know Nick is a mortician? Yep, and he sure has some crazy f*****g stories. So sit back, pour yourself some corpse juice, and have a listen!
    Music:
    Sentenced, "Rot To Dead"
    Palace of Worms "Rot From The Stars"

    Episode 44 - Born Dad (with Harri Kuokkanen)

    Finland's own Harri Kuokkanen (Hooded Menace, Ride For Revenge, Horse Latitudes, Hail Conjurer) sits down with the Dads for an in-depth discussion on Danzig, weightlifting, Body Count, religion, and the delicate cultural intricacies of pissing in public. Is Ice T the coolest guy ever? Who's going to Aftershock this year? Is America doomed? Does Blue Oyster Cult still "have it" in 2018? What is "it"? Tune in to find out!
    Music:
    Body Count, "Cop Killer"
    Hooded Menace, "Charnel Reflections"
