Welcome to another episode with a guest host...my little brother Zaid. In this episode we get a perspective from a member of a younger generation on Metal. An interesting discussion is had on how people “discover” Metal and what happens when they do not have that incredible privilege. We also talk about Metal from an international perspective...especially from an Eastern stand-point. The episode culminates in a conversation about the awesome Iraqi band Acrassicauda.

In this episode Loond, who was diligently paying attention all year, and Jibbies (who was not) discuss the former’s list of Top Albums for 2014. Jibbies has since caught up with almost all of them and can confirm that Loond knew what the hell he was talking about. They also check in on Down’s pulling the plug, the 4-person C.O.C. reformation, and Black Tusk’s decision to keep it rolling.
