It’s that time again. When you curl up next to your computron with your favorite elixir and listen to your good friends Jibbies and Loond talk about what they love most…Metal. Loond is up first with his account of the Converge, Torche, and Kvelertak show at Fitz. Jibbies comes in with his very next day re-cap of the Red Fang, Black Tusk, and Lord Dying show at Fitz as well. Props go out to Lo-Pan, Goatwhore, and High On Fire and their tour together. Loond talks about the new Deftones and Witchcraft records. Jibbies brings us Heat as his new music pick. Loond gushes about the At The Gates DVD set called “Flames Of The End”. The guys wrap things up with a humorous discussion about gold and its value in a post-apocalyptic world and the ridiculousness of the website called “WhatsYourPrice.com”.

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 045 - Tomahawk Sandy

Alright folks. We’ve done gone and brung it this time! Tune in for a review of the recent Tomahawk stop in Houston, as well as previews of upcoming shows by Converge/Torche/Kvelertak , Red Fang/Black Tusk/Lord Dying, and Dethklok/Machine Head/As I Lay Daying/The Black Dahlia Murder. We also offer our expert opinion on new records from Killing Joke (Loond’s early pick for big 2012 honors), Devin Townsend, Mos Generator, and Bloody Hammers. And then….things go slightly off the rails as J&L first work themselves into a froth months in advance for Clutch’s ‘Earth Rocker’ and then vent their spleens on those denizens of the northeast who have become unduly whiny in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

There’s lots of great music to accompany the free-wheeling commentary, so the time has come to do your duty: Lay back, close your eyes, open up, and take it in.

[Editor’s Note: J&L’s Hurricane Sandy rant is not directed at ALL residents of the northeast, many of whom suffered truly tragic losses of life and property….just the ones who seem pretty much okay but are now standing around whining. GonzoGeek’s thoughts go out to all those still recovering from losses suffered at the hands of this storm. We know from Gulf Coast experience how hard it is].

Review: 'Metalocalypse Season Four' DVD

Dethklok, the world’s greatest cultural force, return to earth in ‘Metalocalypse Season 4,’ as foretold by prophecy, to record the most important album of their career. The ups and downs of this process make for some serious metal-driven funniness. But one of the coolest things about this series is that you don’t need to be a metal fan to enjoy it. Examples of the universal human themes lampooned in Season 4 include: fan love, smoking , ‘-Con life, global economic h...

Our duo returns with a long over due new episode. Come join us as we traverse the global Metal map. Loond brings us a live music report with his thoughts on the Accept/Kreator show in Austin at Emo’s. New music from The Company Band and 5 Horse Johnson is discussed and oldies but goodies from Skyclad, Jesus Lizard, and Mos Generator are reflected on. Jibbies asks if vinyl is better than mp3 and reminisces about At The Gates and Carcass. The guys also talk about their bros in The Business Machines and their new track that Jibbies is pleased with. We also talk about Megadeth in India and how the scene has blown up in that country. So have a listen and throw some horns in the sky.

Rock n' roll of All Ages: Rolling Stones, the Business Machines, Spacehog

It's been a great morning in rockland. First, the original perfecters of the form, the Rolling Stones, come back with their greatest track in ages, 'Doom and Gloom.' Then, the first brand new track in nearly as long emerges from (Houston, then LA, now Redding, CA) stalwarts the Business Machines. And finally, holy shit, the first new track in 10 YEARS from Spacehog! It actually all started last night with news that Ryan Adams had entered the studio with D-Generation ...

Episode 43 comin at ya.Loond gives us a run down of the DEVIN TOWNSEND show at Warehouse Live in Houston with support from KATATONIA. Jibbies talks about Matt Pike and the uncool incident of his stolen guitar. Jibbies continues with his new found love for British Thrashers EVILE and describes his listening strategy when jamming in the car. Loond is tickled once again at yet another band that has split into two camps and now exists as two separate entities…yes, there are now two versions of QUEENSRYCHE folks. Our duo is psyched about the upcoming tour of THE SWORD with support from AMERICAN SHARKS and CONVERGE with support from Norway’s KVELERTAK. We round out the show with collective amusement over Bobby Blitz’ scorn for Avenged Seven Fold’s similarity between their logo and OVERKILL’s…J&L agree that OVERKILL’s is waaaaaaaay cooler.
