Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hey, Randy here with another update. If you didn't know the Metal Show was not on the air this week as I had a lame final to take care of. Now I am done, but I will be returning to my hometown for about a month to train further in the ways of metal and come back energized and focused to bring you all another semester's worth of the music you love!

If you didn't notice yet I updated the concert section on the right with the Black Dahlia Murder and 3 Inches of Blood show at the Picador right here in Iowa City! Aren't you excited?

Also, I will be possibly putting up minor updates on here throughout the coming weeks as I will be less busy over break than I am during when school is in session. (don't hold me to that though!)

Oh, and as far as I know next semester the Metal Show will be back on from 9-11PM every Tuesday night, but if anything changes I will make sure to update it here first in big BOLD letters so everyone sees it!

I expect all of you to listen again next year and support metal on KRUI 89.7! Oh, and if you haven't checked out the show yet you definitely should!

Merry Kissmass and a Happy Booze year,



Check out some metal christmas songs to get you in the holiday mood...

Twisted Sister- Twisted Christmas (get the CD!)
Manowar's cover of Silent Night, Holy Night (search for the link) (get a free download of the Special FIGHT Christmas song, Christmas Ride while it lasts!!!)

Oh, and what would a metal show blog post be without a cool music video? Only this time it's even cooler because it is Christmas themed as well. Here is Dokken with their metal cover of Santa Claus is Coming to Town!

Hang on to your lugnuts its time for an overhaul!

Hey metalheads Randy here letting you know that the blog was actually updated today! (are you as surprised as I am?)

I apologize for the lack of updates in November, but it does explain why November is the month with the highest case of suicide and coincidentally awesome heavy metal songs. Because there is so much damn stress and anger that month with classes coming to a culmination and cold weather all around.

But now Christmas cheer is rearing its head and although that may not mean great rage filled metal music it does make for metal show blog updates as well as Twisted Sister Christmas cover cds.

Listen to the Metal Show Tuesday night only on KRUI 89.7 from 9-11PM for a breaking concert announcement that comes surprisingly close to home... in fact there is going to be an awesome metal show at one of Iowa City's very own venues so you will just have to listen for that news!!!!

Oh, and it will be put up on the blog after Tuesday.

Have a metal week and listen to the metal show tomorrow night!


While you are waiting in suspense for that update here is a little clue as to one of the bands coming...
