114 – Greg Puciato, Touché Amoré, Bon Jovi and Metz

The rock world is in mourning this week as news broke on 6th October that Eddie Van Halen has died at the age of 65 after a long battle with cancer. Steve and Remfry pay their respects to a guitarist who undoubtedly and unmistakably changed the way that people approach the electric guitar.

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.
