Offshore Mike is back for a show all about Heavy Metal: where it came from, how it developed and where it’s at now. As a bonus, Fab reviews The Curious Expedition.
We review Sabaton’s The Last Stand and debate over what the best song on the album is.
Fab talks about seeing Sabaton live for the first time at Elb Riot and we discuss what Heavy Metal actually is. What does it all mean?
Dave then gives a whistlestop tour of the history of Metal: Blues, Rock, The Who and some broken amps, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Judas Priest, Punk Rock, Def Leppard, Iron Maiden, Van Halen… Heavy Metal, Power Metal, Black Metal, Doom Metal, Thrash Metal, Nu Metal, Deathcore, Metalcore, Retro-Metal and finally Djent.
Mike poses that Metal is all about going to gigs. And he says it’s not all about angry, white young men either. He then gives his Top 5 Albums That You Didn’t Know You Needed In Your Life:
- Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath
- Painkiller by Judas Priest
- Somwhere in Time by Iron Maiden
- Epicus Doomicus Metallicus by Candlemass
- …For Victory by Bolt Thrower
We then do the Sabaton Quizz!
To have something else besides Metal on the show (heresy!), Fab reviews The Curious Expedition which is a great game from two dudes in Berlin. He absolutely loves it! If you are German, he also recommends you read Kapitän Schwandt’s biography Sturmwarnung.
