Point of views from Try Redemption guitarist Jon Daigle and stand up comedian/metal uber fan Jared Dierks. News/Tours/Interviews/Reviews/Discussions and even a segment called "Who's Idea Was This?" where we explore the non-metal realm... scary!
MetalsPeak 91 - Nail In The Coffin sPeak
All good things come to an end - and hey what do you know? Even mediocre things come to an end too! This may or may not be the last episode... but for the foreseeable future... yeah it's the last episode. Until we decide to do another one of course.
We had hoped to make it to 100 episodes. so what better topic to power through this one with than "Top 100 Songs For Not Making It To 100 episodes"? We even made an effort to not get long winded on all our picks so you'll be amazed at how quickly and efficiently we got through everything.
Plus - major bonus! Dave Holch from Mechina joined us! For the whole episode! Totally justifying us as a legitimate metal podcast. Huzzah!
MetalsPeak 90 - Does Anyone Listen Anymore sPeak
There was shows. With brutals. We saw the brutals and they were wow so brutal. So top 5 brutal riffs... for sending tasteless tweets to the POTUS. Because topical.
MetalsPeak 89 - Proud To Be A Merkin sPeak
Just in time for Easter! This topic shouldn't come to a surprise to any of the listeners. We all attend a reenactment of "The Passion" each year, right? That's a goddamn given. But now you can show up in style - both physically and musically! By the way we're copyrighting "Easter grass merkin" so... sorry you missed out on the millions that will certainly bring in for us.
We also chatted about the amazingness of the Colorado Springs local metal scene over the last two weeks. If you missed those shows... for shame!
And we wrapped up with "The Way Is Through" from Minsk.
MetalsPeak 88 - Things That Were Relevant Two Weeks Ago sPeak
If you've listened to MetalsPeak before, WOW you must have been really bored. But srsly if you've listened before you know how we like to stay current and topical with our...topics... So yeah it should be no surprise that we decided to do Top 5 songs for being a hummingbird rising weasel in a diaper on the way to buy a white and gold dress that everyone says is blue and black.
Plus we talked about the recent shows with Suicide Silence, Within The Ruins, Fit For An Autopsy, and Crown Magnetar at The Black Sheep, and Fallujah, Lorna Shore, Vale of Pnath, and Skyburial at The Marquis.
And Legz treated us to a pretty sweet rendition of the '89 Batman theme by Danny Elfman.
MetalsPeak 87 - Its Not Me Its You sPeak
We're back after a long break and firing on all cylinders! All 3 of them! Plus we welcome back Alloy Matt as we have a melancholic discussion about awkward "break-ups" we've had with bands. You know - those songs you heard for the first time and thought, "Wow, I used to love this band... what the hell happened?!?!?!?" - check out Matt's list on You Tube here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLWEuwyUWHhUWcoE7RPpJVGFEA6KGGgMS4.
We also got some thoughts from Jared on the recent tour packages of Periphery, Nothing More, Wovenwar, and Thank You Scientist tour, as well as Cannibal Corpse, Behemoth, Aeon, and Tribulation.
And Daigle had no qualms about self-serving by playing two new tracks from the upcoming Try Redemption album "Hollow Be Thy Name" - we spun "Deception Scheme" and "We Are Legion", the latter of which features one of the new dynamics of the band: clean vocals! By the way the irony of playing a clean vocal Try Redemption song on this particular episode was not lost on us. Hue hue hue...
And if you haven't seen the Greatest Hit of Disturbed video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=66gSvNeqevg) you're missing out.
MetalsPeak 86 - Flahflulala sPeak
What a year! We do our best to whittle down the year's releases to the top 10; probably not the most popular results but you know what? F**k it! This is 'Merica and these is ours lists!
Sidetracking this time includes the truly amazing editing that is "This Is My Product" and the good times of "Cumming or Drumming.
We also check out "Lacerated, Strangled, Impaled" and "War Against All Living" by Tacit Fury
