151 – Tyler The Creator, At The Gates, Year of No Light and Turnstile

We can officially announce that it’s coming home but no-one’s bothered to tell Remfry what ‘it’ is … luckily Steve’s on hand to inform, educate and entertain, three things that we’re super psyched to do on this podcast. We also discuss why Bruce Dickinson is a bit of a plonker and talk about the latest allegations against Marilyn Manson.
New releases reviewed this week are Call Me If You Get Lost by Tyler, The Creator, The Nightmare of Being by At the Gates, Consolamentum by Year of No Light and Turnstile Love Connection by Turnstile

29 – Shagging A Clanger

We’ve come over all Heavy Metal on this week’s show, with Steve and Remfry reviewing new albums from Rotting Christ (Black Metal), Crystal Lake (Metalcore) and Dangerface (Not Metal). The boys also recount their experience watching ‘the most metal show of all time’ in the form of At The Gates, Wolves in the Throne Room and the mighty mighty Behemoth tones, whilst elsewhere Remfry casts his beady eye over live shows from Cancer Bats and Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes.

Trade-off this week comes courtesy of Beneath The Massacre with their debut full-length Mechanics of Dysfunction and Albany NY punks Drug Church with their third full-length album Cheer. But that’s not all … this week we introduced our first range of Riot Act merchandise (AKA Riot Gear) … T-shirts, Hoodies, Longsleeves Snapback caps, Beanies, Badges, Mugs … even a bloody drawstring bag for Pete’s sake!
