Episode 95 - A Year In Review Have we really been chewing the metal for 2 whole years? To celebrate, we're adding 3 parts self indulgence to 2 parts hilarity and putting it in a blender for a whopping 73 minutes!
Key talking points - A time travelling Metallica, some wrong opinions all round, some awards that you wouldn't want to accept, "one of every Chris", some tactical voting, Rich puts his memory to the test and Kyle almost forgets how audio-only media works.

Episode 94 - Audioslave/Revelations This week, we're listening to the final album of a very short lived noughties supergroup. Chris Cornell is in the band, so we all know what Kyle thinks. But what will Rich have to say and will it make Kyle cry?
Key talking points - A body or a bomb, a new master mixer enters the fray, Google Earth announcements, a sightless track listing, lots of 'too short' verses, Rich doesn't know how he knows some songs, Brendan O'Brien doesn't appreciate duck solos, Kyle tries to become Tom Morello's guitar (a lot) and that feeling you get when you almost forget to write your best song.

Episode 93 - Nickelback/Silver Side Up They're everyone's favourite band to hate, but that doesn't mean this album wasn't instrumental in our musical education. So how will we feel over 20 years later? Have the good times gone? Is it too bad? Will we say never again? Ok, I'll stop now.....
Key talking points - The nun who introduced us to Nickelback, a tangent that takes us to infinity and beyond, some self explanatory lyrics, a computer called C.H.A.D, an ode to a baker, Rolling Stone get in under the wire, Rich does a casual Covid test and Kyle sings along to every single song.

Episode 92 - Slash/Slash Oh, hi! Nice to see you and sorry for the delay between episodes. We're making up for lost time though by talking about not one, but fifteen different artists on Slash's self titled debut.
Key talking points - Maybe too much Stranger Things chat, the Boyzone timewarp, Slash doesn't play the bass, Rich turns into a helicopter for a second, a confusing Promise, Dave Grohl forgets to start singing, some lyrics ripped straight from the dictionary, Myles Kennedy saves the day and Kyle nearly breaks his mic when we pick next week's album.

Episode 91 - Architects/Nightmares Unknown territory this week, as we delve all the way back to Architects' debut album. But will it leave us wondering why all our Gods have abandoned us?
Key talking points - Kyle pleases his fans, Rich orders some strawberries, we listen to an 'extremely metal album', a quick Jeb update, a recording studio that never existed and five men fall down a flight of stairs.

Episode 90 - Funeral For A Friend/Hours Warning - this episode contains the C-bomb (blame Kyle).
It's the big 9-0! This week, we have the return of Welsh heroes Funeral For A Friend. Kyle knew the last album we listened to and Rich didn't like it. Rich knew this album - will history repeat itself?
Key talking points - Endless sniffles, Watergate 2: Scandal Harder, Terry Date - the man that produced that one Handsome album, John Mitchell strikes again, Rich takes us on a quick Robbie Williams detour, a mystery party line, the interesting recording of a boring song, Kyle gets Rich to check he hasn't gone mad and a disclaimer for the next few months.

Episode 89 - Foo Fighters/There Is Nothing Left To Lose This week, we finally learn the real reason why the Foo Fighters frontman looks so similar to the drummer from Nirvana, as we dive into the Foo's classic 1999 album 'There Is Nothing Left To Lose'.
Key talking points - A relaxed recording process, we meet the master of surround sound, some Grammy admin, a brand new supergroup, Metallica shaves their heads, Kyle has strong opinions on hardback books and Rich still won't let last week slide.

Episode 88 - Shadows Fall/The War Within This week, we're filling an 'early 2000's metal bands' shaped hole in our knowledge.
Key talking points - Ben Wheatley: 50% auteur/50% rubbish, a waste of memory, everyone is French, the old 'your career is a tent' analogy, Rich zones out, we devote 10 minutes to the first song and less that 2 minutes to the second, Kyle plays the Uno reverse card, a boring melody, we do some learning in real-time and Stockholm Syndrome sets in.

Episode 87 - System Of A Down/Mezmerize This week, we go back to everyone's favourite wacky and political Armenian-American Nu-Metal band (if you know of any others, please let us know!).
Key talking points - Some bad spelling, a very elite group of bands, some silent shredding, is Judd Nelson secretly an Armenian guitarist called Daron?, a surprising number of metal band/children's films crossover, Rich mishears a movie and Kyle gets so excited about a video game that he might just leave mid-episode.
