Middle-Aged Metal-Heads is a group of friends and life-long heavy metal fans. Our conversations about growing up (and growing old) on heavy metal are the basis for our podcast "Middle-Aged Metal-Heads" which is currently streaming on all major outlets!
Lucky episode number 25.
Woe to you, o earth and sea, for the Devil sends the Beast with wrath because he knows his time is short. Here it is. Explosions. High Voltage.
It's dirty. It's ugly. And we like it that way. This episode's balls are to the wall both literally and figuratively. We explore the awkward METAL YEARS of 1986. Pimples, warts, spandex, and all. Come with us on a magical journey through time and space.
Our intrepid METALHEADS embark on a mission to create the ultimate festival. Using a draft format designed by evil GameMaster John Hardin, we built five festival from the ground up. Which one would you attend? Step right up, Middle-Aged Metal-Heads. It's goin down.
In PURE MAIDEN style, this episode is an epic tale of woe, struggle, and ultimately victory. The MAMHs tackle a monster in IRON MAIDEN and discuss the history of the band, the allure of 3+ guitarists, and why some of us cannot seem to get to the shows. All that and more. Gallop along and give us a run through.
What were you doing in 1985? If you were a Middle-Aged Metal-Head, you were probably heading to High School give-or-take a few years. This episode tackles the tough times of Live Aid, New Coke, and all that mess that was just a distraction from the real deal of 1985 -- THE METAL. Tune in, drop out, dive in, and freak with us this week. Leave us a 5 STAR review and get a friend to start listening. Boom.
Van Halen Van Hagar Von Cherone . . . nah just kidding. Our MAMHs (minus Kerry) discuss another monstrous metal ELEPHANT in the room -- the VAN HALENS. The trials tribulations coke infused parties hurting Steve Perry and DUKE IT OUT over the Red Rider himself, Samuel Hagar. Can he really drive 55 or is that just a hoax fabricated by his mechanic? I mean everybody wants some, right? Hit me wild thing. Press play.
Oh--and pay attention. There's a contest. Win a CD from AgeOfMetal.us! Thanks COLIN! Everything really IS AWESOME
What would we be if we weren't out listening to metal? NOTHING, that's what! This week, Michael and Colin set aside their walkers, CPAP machines, and ensure drinks in favor of metal, cigarettes, and beer beer beer. They partied with the throngs outside and then spoke to the man himself, GEOFF TATE! Check it.
What do you think of when you think of THRASH METAL?!
Who was your gateway to thrash? Do you love it? Are you METAL F*&CKING MAD?!?!?!
Kerry, Michael, Colin, David, Geoff, and special guest BROSEPH JOSEPH get together to BANG HEADS over who's the best, the worst, and the lasting kings of THRASH. LIsten up, METALHEADS. Get yourself a nap and a warm cup of tea and cuddle up with the MIDDLE-AGED METAL-HEADS
After a brief hiatus, our faithful old men return to discuss the year 1984: Favorite records, songs, characters, attytudes, and hits. We're a little punchy this week so take it easy on us. The dogs are barking and the bones are moaning. Throw a log onto the fire and join us as we explore the year it all came together and fell apart.
We're throwing a 21 year old shrimp on the barbed wire in a room full of old men. That didn't sound right. Our Metal-head At-large hits the road and visits the UNIFY Gathering in balmy Australia. Hear the ins and outs of the festival experience, some vinyl insights, and a word from new MAMH-about-town Geoff! CAN YOU DIG IIIIIIIITTTTT
We've got a burning feeling. It's like a roaring flame. . . burning. . . burning. . . Hey, something is burning in here. Burning questions that are searing their way to the top and causing us to bubble over. Welcome to our first Free For All. Here's some things we want to know.
Where do you get your records growing up in a small west coast town? Special guest John Hardin peels back the curtain to reveal that he's not always been the superhip homeboy from Austin that y'all think he is.
Special guest Chris Tipping takes us on a journey through his childhood with some experiences and recordings that have withstood the tests of time, ridicule, poor management, and seedy venues. Come listen to a trio of old men yammer on about Heavy Metal and some of its trappings.
Come along with us as we wax poetic on the inner need for bands to splatter the holiday yule with the blood of virgins. Nah, just a rant and rave about the best and worst of metal XMAS tunes. Do we need them? Do we love them? What are they thinking anyway? It's a rare occasion such as this that we find Michael, Colin, Kerry, and David on the same episode.
Changing horses midstream. Changing drivers at a stop light.
Who are these bands who have loved and lost, succeeded or failed, rose to the occasion or were left as a burnt out shell of their former selves on the side of the road. . . kicked. . . in the head. . . with a steel boot. . . after losing their lead singer. We Middle-Aged Metal-Heads have a few winners and losers. Who are your picks? Listen in and give us a call. You may be featured in a future episode.
Who is this mysterious figure? MAMH Kerry Karte talks backwoods living rooms, Charlie Pride, and gives us the title of the one record that he managed to wear out on vinyl, 8-track, and cassette on his road to being a card-carrying METAL-HEAD.
In this episode we overcome technical difficulties and get homework assigned to us by Age of Metal CEO and Middle-Aged Metal aficionado Colin Bosler. Colin discusses his most pivotal record and dares us all to listen to records as they were intended by the artist. Has easy access to music degraded our listening experience? Artistic expression? Somehow we manage to talk about KISS again and just wait for the cliffhanger. . .
In this episode, our intrepid Metal-Head is At-Large at BarCampPhilly 2018 to host a session with current and future Middle-Aged Metal-Heads. What are they listening to? Who are their secret squeezes? Guilty pleasures and Sexy Metal?!
In this special episode the Middle-Aged Metal-Heads brave the frigid temperatures of the Pipersville garage to interview Felipe Belalcazar, director of Death by Metal. This documentary follows the life, career, and passing of Chuck Schuldiner, the mastermind behind the
pioneering metal band, Death. Trailer: https://vimeo.com/125608027
