Don't forget...

The Metal Show is back live and non-prerecorded, so definitely check it out from 1-3PM this Wednesday only on KRUI 89.7!

There will be some new music from Iced Earth, Arch Enemy, Black Dahlia Murder, and Down as well as the usual metal classics.


P.S. Serj Tankian of System of a Down is coming out with a new solo album, I know the band is hit or miss with a lot of people, but I thought this new video for the album coming out October 23 was pretty cool.

Tuesday is the day that we all go broke...

Hello again, it is Randy here for your what seems to be weekly blog message. Tuesday September 25th is going to bring the pain on metal fans pocket books as the new Arch Enemy, Down and Dethklok cds come out! Not too mention if you are like me and forgot that Iced Earth's new one is also out now.

It is times like this where you have to prioritize which albums you need the most...

Not to mention that Tuesday is the official release date for Halo 3 if you are into video games. This game is ridiculously huge, so I assume at least some of you reading this will be buying that as well.

Whatever you do go out and support metal, whether it be buying any of these new cds or an old classic thrash album!

That is an order!

Sgt. Randy

P.S. If you are a fan of metal and don't know what Metalocalypse is do yourself a favor and check out the show on Adult Swim (Cartoon Network)

Finally, an update!

Hey all you headbangers, this is Randy, your fellow metalhead and DJ for the Metal Show reporting for duty. I just wanted to let anyone checking out the blog to know that I updated the concert lists with some new ones, as well as the CD Releases. They are constantly being updated so check back for more, in fact why not just bookmark the blog?

For this week's edition of the Metal Show (Wednesday, from 1-3PM) I will actually be prerecording my show so if you try and call in you will not get an answer. However, you should still hear my wonderful voice, although this time around there will be significantly less talking and significantly more raging metal music!

Why am I prerecording my show do you ask? For a test??? No way!

I am going to see my bro's band Dark Mirror open for Megadeth at the Rave in Wisconsin! Check em' out if you get the time www.darkmirroronline.com and www.myspace.com/darkmirror.

I will post concert updates on the blog ASAP and hopefully maybe I will even get a review and some photos up as well.

Stay tuned to the one and only Official Metal Show Blog and the Metal Show (Wednesdays from 1-3PM) for more info on all things metal!


Oh, and check out this video of Cedar Falls own Dark Mirror in action at the legendary Lang Auditorium!

Welcome to the Metal Show Blog!

Hey Randy here, sending out a greeting to all you metalheads at the University of Iowa or around the world. I decided that since other shows on KRUI have blogs, my show should have one too! Only this blog will hopefully not be neglected like some of those other blogs out there. My goal to is to make the blog informational and entertaining. I already added a news feed straight from Blabbermouth and I will hopefully be updating the concert and cd release section sometime shortly.

Remember that this blog is a work in a progress and it will only get better! Stay tuned for more updates. And while you are waiting check out this sweet Overkill video for Elimination on Youtube!
