33 – The Metalcore Femidom (feat. Ithaca’s Djamila Azzouz and Svalbard’s Serena Cherry)

Steve and Remfry are joined this week by two of the most controversial and contentious figures in the history of metal music… well, according to the comments on Metal Hammer’s Facebook Page at least. Ithaca’s Djamila Azzouz and Svalbard’s Serena Cherry have the AUDACITY(!) to front two of the UK’s best heavy bands, DESPITE being women! The two gents attempt to get to the bottom of how two people that don’t even have one penis between them(!) could have the audacity to front extreme metal bands. Unbelievable!

The quartet also discuss the rather worrying trend of people investing more money in music memorabilia than music itself, which leads to a frankly baffling conversation about band-themed contraceptives (Winston, if you’re interested in those Parkway Drive coils, give us a call and we’ll go 50/50 yeah?). Album reviews this week come courtesy of Venom Prison, Louise Lemón and Angel Du$t.

04 – Calculating Infinity: The ArcTanGent 2018 Review

This week, Stephen and Remfry are putting two + two together as they get all mathematically minded whilst reviewing ArcTanGent 2018… well, Remfry does. Unfortunately, Steve didn’t put his workings in the margins and consequently turned up late and left early. What a plonker!

Elsewhere Remfry goes ballistic after seeing The Fever 333’s debut demonstration in London mere hours before the show was recorded and Steve goes stark raving bonkers over the new album from Mantar, as well as giving us a history lesson in art so offensive, even the Nazis disapproved of it!

The boys also review new albums from Jesus Piece and Leeched and verdicts are given on the latest Album Swap; Entombed’s Same Difference and Oceansize’s Effloresce. Plus comment is given on the new single from Sheffield metalcore abandoners Bring Me The Horizon.
