The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 025 - Metal 2012!!

The celebrations of good cheer, holiness, and consumerism are over, and it is once again time for METAL!!...in all its shapes and sizes. Lots has happened since our duo last sat down together and they dive right in, tackling both the Ratt/Grohl collaboration and Howard Jones exit from Killswitch Engage. They then offer one last glance into 2011, checking out a few December releases that may have otherwise been overlooked including Black Pyramid 'II'. But onward! 2012 is gonna be HEAVY, Lamb of God setting the tone with the Jan. 24 release of 'Resolution' before launching into what is sure to be a globe-encompassing and domination-establishing tour. And its never too early to start talking festivals, J&L daydreaming outloud about the possibilities of a DesertFest/Roadburn/DesertFest 2-week European couch surf, before Jibbies goes all goofy for UK emo eradicators Hawk Eyes.

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 017 - Keep Metal Panhandler Free!

In this episode, Jibbies and Loond get out into the field, visiting the always sonically spectacular Scout Bar in the southern Houston ‘burbs to take in DevilDriver and Skeletonwitch. A full-metal time is had by one and all, the only tiny downside being getting pan-handled by some chick for $1 on behalf of one of the local openers. Talk about harshing your buzz….I mean can’t you tell that we’re standing here having fun, rocking out? And what’s with the snarky comment when we say no? Hopefully this isn’t going to become a new cross-venue trend. Once J&L detail the show itself, they turn toward the future, pontificating on the ins-and-outs of Anthrax and Testament ‘co-headlining’ their upcoming tour and attempting to answer the question, “Is it really a Dead Horse reunion without Michael Haaga participating?”

[Ed. Note: Our interview with DevilDriver guitarist Jeff Kendrick, though not labelled as such, was Ep. 016, making this Ep. 017]

The Jibbies & Loond Show - Episode 010 - Into the Arena, Feasting on Blood

Jibbies takes off for Vienna, Austria, to catch Red Fang, Earthship, Intronaut, and The Ocean in action. It seems too much time on an airplane sets him off though, as no sooner does he land than he launches into a near-rant about how Down will go down in history as Phil Anselmo's main band, not Pantera. Dude won't stop talking(!), next hitting on his fears regarding Ginger's departure from Michael Monroe's band before finally coming up for air and letting Loond have a go. Gates of Slumber and Blood Feast both get looked into, and then before you know it Loond heads to the airport, bound for Sonisphere Turkey.
