Beloved internet personality BRENOCIDE drops by to help us skewer Danzig and unpack the Misfits legacy (including the Michael Graves years). Joe delves into the nü-metal disaster that was Woodstock 99 and 365 leads us in a group discussion on how not to be a dickhole to other metal fans when discussing genre classification. Join us for hearty chuckles and irresponsible speculations. Is this a good episode? You bet, baby!

Music featured in this program:
Stereo Nasty – “Black Widow” from Nasty By Nature (Bandcamp)(Facebook)
Druid – “Bones to Ash” from Cill Dara (Bandcamp)

    First time listening to Druid and enjoyed it, good stuff Breno!
    I mean, uhh… I’ve heard of them but umm… I’m more into classic rock.

  • Eliza

    This Brenocide guy is funny.

    • GoatForest

      Very. He used to run a great metal comedy site.

    • He is way better than the other guys. They fucking suuuuuuuuuuuck. jk

    Blackest of the Black festival was in my woods, and Danzig was the chief performer of the event. We ents still do not see the draw to see Suicidal Tendencies all these years later.

    I think Danzig might be slowly morphing into Tangina from Poltergeist.

      It’s true. He is. And it’s a long way back from there, if he can get back at all.

  • Joaquin Stick

    Quick question: when it comes to metal veterans shitting on newbie tastes, are we allowed to do that if someone tells you their favorite metal band is Attack Attack? (Like, I’m usually on the other side of this metalsplaining, but come on, they deserve it).

    • Joaquin Stick

      Also, checking out Heaven in Her Arms, I like!

    • NDG

      I use it as an opportunity to try and suggest some other bands they might enjoy.

  • Hans

    Metal bullying is real!

    It was cool that you mentioned this “inferiority complex”. I haven’t listened to a lot of stuff that’s considered classic and always dread someone calling me out on it. At the same time, I scoff at people that don’t know certain stuff or are into stuff that I despise. I say “stuff” a lot.

    Druid is pretty cool.

    • Joaquin Stick

      I always joke that I haven’t heard anything that came out before 2005, and it’s sorta true…

    • NDG

      I understand that and have find that I don’t really enjoy a lot of “classic” metal.

      Having said that, I remember having a conversation with a dude who was younger than me in the late 90s about what he listened to. He was into stuff like Opeth, COF, Dimmu Borgir, etc. I asked him if he had listened to the bands that had influenced that sound (Venom, Bathory, Darkthrone, etc.) and he said he hadn’t heard of them. When I offered to make him a mixed tape he said he wasn’t interested. I was incredulous! How could you not want to understand the context and roots of the music you listen to?!?!

      Anyway, I think the point I’m trying to make is that you should listen to what you like but I do think it is important that people educate themselves about the history of what they’re listening to and understand its context. Or not, maybe I’m taking it too seriously.

      • GoatForest

        Nah, you’re right. Elitists suck, but the total disregard of history and context that many, but certainly not all, the younger newbies have is worse.

        • NDG

          Was just doing some surfboard research and found this quote…seems apt:

          “Evolution is a way of life but why forget what has happened in the past”

      • Hans

        I would have reacted the same way I think. I agree that one should have at least heard the originators/influencers and that context somewhat enriches the experience, even when it only serves to enable you to identify influences in other stuff you like.

  • GoatForest

    Don’t worry guys. My wife and I also really dig the Graves era. Those songs were legit.
    In fact, we had “Saturday Night” play for the first dance.

    • Al Bvndy

      Graves was the best. I fucking love Danzig all day long but Famous Monsters will always be my favourite Misfits LP.

      • I agree. That’s a great Misfits record.

        • GoatForest

          Hey, I see you’ve been popping up around here more often. Nice. Now, we just gotta get Reaping, Conan, and Sadistik over here…

    • NDG

      I’m a big fan of Graves era Misfits too. Probably wouldn’t go so far as to say it represents my favourite Misfits albums but I listen to them a lot.

      • GoatForest

        That’s completely fair.

        • NDG

          Reading this did inspire me to give Famous Monsters a spin at work today!

          • GoatForest

            Beware of Them!

  • Óðinn
  • I had literally no idea the guys were gonna feature one of my tunes, I would have talked about the band or something incredibly fucking interesting and attention grabbing like talking about being in a band.

  • Dumpster Lung

    “-big fuckin’ stupid crouton”

    HAHAHA

  • NDG

    Good show…only just listened.

    Mate, you need to work on that Australian accent.
