    Awesome photo, Boss.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Thanks Eliza!

  • Randall’s Sweaty Space Pants

    Who is the third guy?

  • Dubbbz

    Joe, here’s the Pick of Destiny clip 365 is referencing.

    • Dagon

      DAVE <3

  • Randall’s Sweaty Space Pants

    If you listen to new Metallica and expect thrash in the vein of Vektor or Havok, or a return to And Justice For All, you might be stupid as fuck.

    Randall, pass it on to your idiot friends.

    • Eliza

      All I want it to be is good. Not fantastic, not great, just good.

      • Randall’s Sweaty Space Pants

        Their track record over the past 20 years shouldn’t allow you to get your hopes up.

        • Eliza

          If it’s as good as Death Magnetic, it’ll be ok with it. I don’t think we’ll get another St. Anger judging by the song released so far, and something like Lulu is a one in a lifetime sort of mistake.

  • Joaquin Stick

    It’s ok Joe, I thought “Machina” as in “deus ex machina” was pronounced “Machine-ah” until like 3 years ago. Just never once heard anyone say it out loud for 20+ years.

    • I’ve heard it said this way. I don’t correct them because I wouldn’t want to steal that amusement from anyone they say it to in the future

    • should be spelled “Mächina” imo. Gotta let readers know that it don’t sound american.

    • Eliza

      I’ve only heard someone actually say “deus ex machina” in CinemaSins videos.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    that ancst sounded one clean vox passge short of metalcore

  • “Did you like that track?”

    out of nowhere: YES

  • Joaquin Stick

    It’s amazing how pits across the country all have the same distinct personas involved. What a weird fucking subculture.

    • It’s the same people in each one actually

      • Abradolf Lincler

        people in the pit < people at the bar

    • Dubbbz

      There’s always one giant Latino guy in the pit in Texas. like a dude with a good foot and 100 pounds on everyone else, and he’s never wearing a shirt.

      • He changes ethnicity depending on location

      • Typical Latino swag.

        I hope it’s Dagon with his camo shorts with no shirt.

  • I can hear Albus’s collar jingle because he’s running around the whole episode

    • Abradolf Lincler

      big fuzz WILL NOT wear a collar. she just starts trippin out trying to get it off

  • So, these are my comments for today’s episode:

    – That cover art is glorious. Boss the Ross is one of the best things that happened in the ToH since the… Well, the creation of the blog 😛

    – Graven Rite sounds p good. Pure Manilla Road/Cirith Ungol worship with a gritty demo quality production.


    – Mustaine is still a major douchebag, even when Havok went to the gossip route he’s still a D-O-U-C-H-E-B-A-G.

    – Wow! Ancst singer sounds a little like Tomas Lindberg!!! <3 I dug this very much, the melodies and the drumming and the melodies, of course. Will go directly to my #LinkNotebook.

    – "THIS IS MAH' JAAAAAAMN" Jajajajaja.

    – Moshpits dudebros sucks.

    – I'm learning on how to listen gringo English with this podcast, really! You're an educational podcast!

    • Link, please do not use us as an example for English unless you want horribly broken English

      • Too late!

        Y’all modafockas should go to Texas. YEE-HAW!!!

      • On the real. Yes, I’m learning a lot with these listens. I have a really hard time trying to traduct in my head the spoken English, so the weekly listenings are helping me to discern the words because you three talk in a good pace and the words sounds good.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Thanks Link! You give me far too much credit though.

    • Maik Beninton™

      I learned how to listen to gringo English with gameplay youtube videos.

  • Dubbbz

    My dudes, I totally forgot that Dickcrush Records uses a snapping turtle in some of their label art.

    • Eliza

      I didn’t think turtles can be scary. I was wrong.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      And just about everything else imaginable

  • Jom Pootersan

    As a fan of both crust and black metal, Ancst was good for me

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    I briefly read “gingers strolling around a circle pit”

  • Hans Gruber
  • Waynecro

    I thought it was mä-lək, ˈmō-ˌläk, as in the ancient deity to whom people sacrificed children (often by throwing them into fire).

  • Hans Gruber

    Maybe Bangladesh Kid just likes the flushing sound that bookends the show?
