    Stuff:
    That intro voice-over>>>

    I’d also avoided Trap Them before as judging by their name and logo, I thought they were just another metalcore band. This is why the TovH radio is great, gets people out of their tunnel. That track reminded me of an enjoyable kind of Converge x Black Breath hybrid.

    Randall, you didn’t make a compelling case for your argument. Saying Thin Lizzy are a rock band enjoyed by Dads, but are somehow not Dad rock is confounding.

    The more pertinent question about the boner-nose thing should not be how fast can you run, but rather how hard is your boner. If your nose is flopping around Randall, you have a flaccid schnozza.

    4/4 with the tracks, top show!

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Randall is right though. Thin Lizzy is not dad rock.

      • Joaquin Stick

        He’s right about the Hellionaires track name too.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          I agree.

        • Mother Shabubu

          Almost as bad as a track off Vision of Disorder’s last one called “Amurdica”

      • Lacertilian

        I don’t care what you call them, but if you’re going to argue that they’re not Dad rock, don’t say they’re rock enjoyed by Dads.

    • Dagon

      That’s exactly what Trap Them sounds like.

      Balloucore >>>>>>>>>>>

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Look for that Blood Incantation on many AoTY lists this year

    • It’s top 5 for me right now. Hasn’t knocked out Zealotry quite yet

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        my top 5 will all be DM’s like this

        • Dubbbz

          Did you hear Temisto’s newest? Randall turned me onto it.

          https://pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/temisto

          • FINALLY PEOPLE ARE GETTING INTO TEMISTO

          • Dubbbz

            *respectfully vapes*

          • well said, much respect

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            no, I will listen to this after the show though for sure
            thank you

          • Elegant Gazing Globe

            I hear much more black metal here than cave-core DM

    • Super Nintendo Chalmers

      Infant Annihilator is obvs #1.

  • Dubbbz

    I saw Trap Them open for Kataklysm/Napalm Death years and years ago, before they really broke big. Their singer’s stage presence was quite violent, and it really worked for their d-beat/mathcore style.

    • I saw them in May and the singer said that he thinks he might’ve gotten a concussion prior to the show. He’s very intense live and the band was tight and sounded excellent.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    great call to action in that preroll ad

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    This is heckin siqq.

  • Dubbbz

    I think Randall should just admit he has pleb beer taste.

  • These shows are quickly becoming my one of my favorite toilet things.

  • Dagon

    I laughed hard at the creamy intro. You are all good people.

    • CyberneticOrganism

      Butthurt prevention & care is an important topic

      • Dagon

        “Wolves don’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep. Or over butthurt no more. Thank you, Butthurt Cream!”

        • CyberneticOrganism

          Spoiler: the cream is actually just mayo, so their butthurt is now smothered in a greasy dairy condiment

          • Dagon

            A mental image that spawned the “booty like groceries” song.

          • Waynecro

            Regular mayo isn’t dairy. What makes it dairy when it becomes butt cream?

      • Eliza

        If more people paid attention to it, the Internet would be a better place.

  • Eliza

    That Trap Them song is great. I can’t wait for the Blood Incantation album to come out.

  • BOOM!

    My Monday just got a lot better.

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    This isn’t the first time dead children have been used on album covers. Witchaven came to mind immediately.

    • Dubbbz

      Pig Destroyer has some pretty lurid art too, but I think they tend to get a pass because 1) the art is more abstracted and 2) Hayes’ lyrics are a bit more esoteric and thoughtful than just pointless gore.

      • Dagon

        Your first point is a great point.

      • Super Nintendo Chalmers

        So if they had run that photo through Prisma first, would we still be talking about it?

        • Dagon

          Perhaps, but I’d definitely say we wouldn’t be talking about it as much as we are now.

        • Dubbbz

          I don’t think so, honestly.

          • Super Nintendo Chalmers

            So their point stands in a roundabout way.

          • Dubbbz

            I think, if you’re trying to show the stark brutality of reality, having a realistic piece of art works.

        • RJA

          Very interesting point here – probably not.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I bought the record today too.

  • Pentagram Sam

    Need to listen to more of these. I mean lettus be for reals here, we all post up and wait for the new articles to pop up every two hours. An hour long show helps and entertains!

    One of the things I thought about the Numenorean cover that was “disturbing” was that the dead girl actually looks almost peaceful and sleeping. The backstory is oh shit territory, but the actual image used isn’t as graphic visually (no gaping wounds, no eyes gouged, no torn off ears or noses) as it is just kinda sad. Sad as in like “shit sucks man” , not limp-sad.

    .

    • Plot Twist: I do not support this cover art. : /

    • I just edited the numenorean album art in itunes to be a cute cat. Problem solved.

      • Joaquin Stick

        I think on spotify they just use their band logo, which is nice.

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      The Numenorean cover art honestly doesn’t seem distutbing to me at all.
      The backstory is, but not the picture.
      Like you say, it isn’t graphic in it’s depiction of violence.
      If you didn’t know the story it might as well be a (‘shopped) picture of a sleeping child.

  • Dagon

    I dig Trap Them, but this is still the superior -ionaire song.

    • Clearly you’ve forgotten about the other Millionaires

        • Lil Wayne is a walking joke now but this still rules.

          • Dagon

            Talk about a downward spiral.

          • Opiates: don’t do ’em.

          • Dagon

            Agreed. They lead to constipation and that’s no way to live life.

          • TOVH RADIO EPISODE 420: DR. TALK, WITH DAGON.

          • Dagon

            On the real though, maybe we should do an episode with medical questions hahahah

          • DR. DAGON, WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT ALBUS’S CONSTANT BUTT LICKING? PLZ HELP

            RT

          • CyberneticOrganism

            I want plastic surgery to look like Darkness from Legend. A) where do I start, and B) can my horns have carbon fiber weave?

          • more beer

            Only until you have no more. Then the dope sickness sets in and they make you piss out of your ass. Among other horrible symptoms.

    • Dubbbz
    • Hans Müller

      Haven’t listened to that album in quite a while. Meeeemorieeees…

  • CyberneticOrganism

    My favorite Trap Them song; not sure what happened to the artwork here, as it’s definitely not the Darker Handcraft album artwork, but the song rips:

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    My dream cruise ship would be no one but me and SMOHLG

  • Super Nintendo Chalmers

    Found some shoes for Randall now so he can fully become a dad rocker.

    • I want these

    • CyberneticOrganism

      I smell a new podcast commercial

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    this episode is crushing my dick with DM

  • Eliza

    I can tell Obama Hitler play terrible music judging by their absurdly awful name.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      I wonder if the music they play is called America-core.

      • I don’t get it.

        • Eliza

          Because Obama is the president of the US?

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          If a band names themselves Obama Hitler they must be over the top republicans. America-core is probably a ripoff of FFDP in their case.

          • STEREOTYPING ALERT. STEREOTYPING ALERT.

          • Janitor Jim Duggan

            Is there really any other option to expect?

    • I couldn’t remember the real name, so I just looked it up in my inbox. It’s actually OBAMA BIN LADEN.

      • Eliza

        *facepalm*

      • Janitor Jim Duggan

        Does Obama Bin Laden sound like a bad FFDP ripoff?

  • Dubbbz

    I don’t recall Mustaine saying much to the crowd when they were doing the Rust in Peace anniversary tour.

    • Eliza

      That was probably for the better.

  • Dubbbz

    That Sallow Moth track ripped.

    • Dubbbz

      Reminds me of older Decapitated.

  • Dubbbz

    Randall, this is like the dad-rockinest song ever.

  • I missed the conversation on the Numenorian review, but I’ve dealt with my fair share of dead and dying infants and two year olds and I don’t see anything artistic about it. With that said, they can use whatever art they want and more power to them if they were being earnest in their use of it instead the usual “look how edgy we are.”

    • Eliza

      If what they were trying to do with the cover was to make people uncomfortable, they definitely reached their goal. The thing is that there were other images they could’ve gone with to obtain that effect, the picture of a dead child was not necessary, that’s my issue with it. That aside, I like Numenorean’s music ok.

      • I have no interest in the music, but I agree with you on a personal level.

  • I’m going to need to get into Blood Incantation now.

    • Elegant Gazing Globe

      On July 29 the word was there were only 100 copies left so buy it now cuz after this show and the review mentioned in the pod cast, it’s gonna be sold the fuck out

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    On the whole Numenorean art ordeal, I don’t see what people mean with “distasteful”. It wasn’t meant to shock, I don’t think the guys knew the girl or her family personally, least of all handed her a shotgun and told her to kill herself like in Mayhem’s case, and I’d assume they at least asked permission. Is it just out of principle? “Every single dead 2 year old is disgusting regardless of context”? Not meaning to disrespect anyone, it’s your opinion and your money of course.

    • RJA

      Is it just out of principle? “Every single dead 2 year old is disgusting regardless of context”?
      I think that’s exactly what it is – although I may not go so far as to say disgusting. There is just so much music/art out there that I don’t have time to be convinced a dead child on your album cover is an artistic statement – I just move on.

      edit: but I don’t judge necessarily – I’ve bought my fair share of questionable albums/art.

  • brokensnow

    Im suprised TT dont get as much shit a Nails on here.

    • I don’t know what that means.

      • more beer

        It seems like you took a page from Reagan’s Iran Contra testimony today.

    • Maik Beninton™

      What you mean Nails get shit on here?

      • brokensnow

        a group of lolzbuttzers dont like the message or approach or whatever.

        • Do YOU know what you’re talking about? Because I certainly don’t.

        • Maik Beninton™

          Are you talking about that one post where we simply made a joke about “U WILL NVR B 1 OF US”, that even Nails themselves shared on twitter?

  • Dave Vincent’s Perm

    As stupid as this sounds (and probably is,) I think people should listen to an album before they form too detailed an opinion on the cover art/lyrics/whatever. The music can sometimes speak in a way which makes the other stuff make sense.

    • brokensnow

      Are you new here? lol

      • Dave Vincent’s Perm

        I’ve been here long enough not to expect it, but I thought I’d say it anyway.

      • I don’t know what that means

        • RJA

          I think it means we’re all assholes or something?!

          • I’d disagree, but I did just publish a podcast in which we talked at length about banging Varg.

    • Dubbbz

      I was actually talking with Link last week about the art and noting that the theme seems consistent with the music and message they’re trying to convey.

    • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

      I agree with this, especially considering that in this day and age you can pretty much listen to anything for free without any effort, so if you don’t agree with the artist you don’t have to give them a cent.

  • Vault Dweller

    I feel like this hypothetical poser-pocalypse presents a great threat to my bodily well-being.

    I need comfort. Save me, Trap Them!

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    Blood Incantation is great, as is Dormant Ordeal. The latter surprisingly much so, for I don’t really like Decapitated.

    Trap Them I recall having been aight, but Hellionaires is just a bore.

    • I’ve never been big on Trap Them, but I don’t hate em.

  • What a great show today, guys. I still SUPPORT!!! <3

    This Trap Them song is surprisingly good, I mistake them as a metalcore album, like Lacertilian and I enjoyed their song! Blood Incantation is insanely good, too.

  • Leif Bearikson

    The Toilet is drowning in Blood Incantation today.

    Also, how the hell have you not seen Mars Attacks, Randall?

  • Hans Müller

    I keep confusing Trap Them with Trash Talk. Not keen on either.

    Regarding the cover artwork debate, what came to my mind was grindcore acts using pictures of mutilated victims of war, e.g. Death Toll 80K‘s Harsh Realities. I’d say the intent there is more to make a political statement than an artistic one, but perhaps the idea to drive home the fact that these things happen in our society is a common denominator. A picture achieves this in a far less abstract way than a painting or an article does.
    However, whether I needed to see a picture to realise that a father killing his child is awful is another matter entirely.

  • Waynecro

    Saturday morning, my legs were so burnt up from high-rep squats that I couldn’t walk properly, so I fell down some stairs. I think I bruised some ribs and a kidney, and it hurts to laugh. I laughed heartily while listening to this episode, and I regret nothing (except falling down those stairs). Also, I’m very pleased to learn that there are other Babymetal fans at the TovH.

    • FLAGGED

      • Waynecro

        I can’t believe that shit. I died laughing.

        • I died frowning.

          • Waynecro

            Because you hate B***metal or because you hate censorship?

          • Um. Both?

          • Dubbbz

            I’m not mad, just disappointed.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    That header image >>>>>>>>>

  • You dudes could play Marry/Fuck/Kill on every episode and I would never stop listening. I think this is my favorite episode so far.

  • ahhhhhhhhh, home from work. high AF. checking the new show makes for a stellar Monday night!
    i REALLY need to call in some day!

    Clarification: beer can be sold in Oklahoma at any strength, but only liquor stores can sell stuff above 3.2, and only room temperature. Grocery stores and gas stations can only sell low point garbage.
