As we yacked about last episode, 1984 was an amazing year for Metaldom. A major part of that awesomeness was the incredible amount of new records that filled the new release racks. So with these albums celebrating their 40th anniversary, we decided to give some of them the deep dive treatment. KISS' "Animalize" is an album near and dear to our Metal Hearts, for different reasons. So we go over the whys and wherefores, the tracklist, the artwork, the whole She-Bang. Give this album a refresher then give us a spin. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we checked out the Captain Comics Expo and some c ..read more

How does the time fly? 1984 was an incredible year for Metaldom. The new release racks were filled with albums that are not only all time classics now, but helped shape the Metal world as we know it today. So this week we do a deep dive into that year that was. Apart from the amazing records, there were an obscene amount of mandatory outfits that formed. And there were news events that we still talk about today. Where's our logo sticker covered Delorian??!! In our "News, Views and Tunes", we attend the 40th (!!) anniversay Vader tour and make Terry Butler an honourary Winnipegger. Musically, w ..read more

Screw You, Togar!

Bucket List moment! The '79 Ramones teen comedy "Rock n Roll High School" is an old fave of ours. We have it on DVD, various streaming platforms and have it practically memorized. But we never got to see it in the theatre...until now. Our local arthouse theater aired it is as part of their Cult Movie Night. So with the experience still fresh in our minds we decided to deep dive into the film. 2024 is also "RnRHS" 45 anniversary. We get into the cast, the highlights (and lowlights), the social commentary and life imitating art (and vice versa). Screw you, Togar! In our "News, Views and Tunes ..read more

The Rush Of Black Metal

The debut full lengther from the almighty Venom "Welcome To Hell" is one of the most influential underground albums ever. Not only in the Black Metal realm but thrash and NWOBHM as well. Its also the album that turned Snowy to Metal full time. We've often said "No Venom, No RAM". Turns out though, Aaron wasn't familiar with this classic (!). So we decided to take a deep dive into this amazing album. Not only all the stand out tracks but the artwork and passages on the jacket as well. We enjoyed  dissecting this record so much we decided to make this concept a semi regular. Stay tuned. Mus ..read more

Episode 770 - Front To The Back

Sure streaming is ruling the roost when it comes to how music is consumed. But the vinyl album is slicing their piece of the pie more and more. Metalheads have always been more album oriented as opposed to just cherry picking a few tracks. And for good reason. There have been numerous albums over the years that are best served whole. Albums that are 100% bangers with no one reaching for the "Skip" button. So this week we go through a list of such classics. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we discuss Joe Bonnamassa's axe collection and thumb through the new Fistful of Metal ish. Musically, we cr ..read more

We admit it, we're old. But with age comes experience. We've witnessed firsthand the majority of the techno marvels we take for granted today. One of our faves was the rise of the home video phenomenon. It was a fun and exciting era. We had the ability to see our favourite flicks at home. As well, it had its effects on Metaldom. This week we go over some of the major titles that made the format so sweet. It also introduced us to some great new bands and even gave some first live visuals of some of our faves. C'mon down memory lane with us. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we hit the record/comi ..read more

New Year's Eve was pretty low key around the RAM offices. We had a night of PJs and popcorn. So we decided this year we would save the partying for you the listeners. We ditched our usual segments and broke out the Lemmys. As we "tipped the elbow", we discussed a variety of topics. Those included our new "Frankenstein" bass, our Christmas hauls, "The Iron Claw" flick, 80s soundtracks, and The Mouse going public domain. Musically, we crank some Master, Mortuary(Mex), The Pist, Rotten Sound, Deteriorot, Witchskull, Blasphemer, Offside, Unnamed Grave and Don't Drop The Sword. Horns Up and Happy E ..read more

The Messes Des Morts in Montreal is a Black Metal festival going on for a dozen years now. The attraction to the fest is the organizers ability to attract artists from across the pond that rarely makes appearances on North American stages. We had planned to be there for this year's instalment. Unfortunately, life had different plans. Fortunately, our good friend and co host of our sister podcast "Wrestling Night In Canada" Mr. "Ducky" Dustin Maruca made the trip. We picked his brain all about the fest. Namely the line up and highlights. And he shares a few cool stories making us wish we were t ..read more
