Midnight Corey suggested this episode’s album review: self-titled “Assjack” from 2009. The hosts also respond to listener comments about the “What Happened to Korn?” episode, as well as talk about other exciting things going on.
Check out Assjack live, which is Hank3 on guitar/vocals with his touring band. Hank3 performed and produced the entire studio album himself.
Korn erupted in the 90’s and changed the face of alternative metal, selling millions of albums and influencing countless bands. Their sound has changed dramatically over the decades, and the three Devil Horns hosts attempt to nail down exactly what happened to Korn, and whether their first few albums still hold up.
Midnight Corey welcomes legendary metal frontman Philip H. Anselmo to the show to talk about the upcoming Housecore Horror Film Festival, which takes place in Austin, TX, October 24-27. It’s four days of metal music and horror films. Corey and Philip discuss a lot more, including their love of the Melvins and how well the Saints are doing this season.
New Jersey Nick’s pick for review this time is the album “Double Brutal” by Austrian Death Machine. It almost turns into a Misfits episode, but we manage to rein it in and really pick the album apart. We respond to listener feedback, and there is a ton of great things discussed.
Mike Zombie had to sit out this episode, so New Jersey Nick and Midnight Corey talk all about the great shows they’ve seen over the summer, which leads to more and more great talk about great metal bands. Consequently, our album review and listener feedback will happen next episode.
Your Devil Horns hosts talk about what is perhaps the strangest metal sub-genre: Christian Metal. Love it or hate it, we talk all about the bands that have shaped this “positive” movement in metal music, concentrating mostly on the 2 bands that caused the most waves: Stryper and Vengeance (Rising). We explore a lot of related questions that come up in light of the Christian influence in metal, and also talk smack on Kerry King.
