Watch the Beat!

Randy here, just saw this cool live video while surfing the net.

It is Joey Belladonna, of Anthrax fame, playing drums and singing the song Got The Time after his normal drummer was forced to sit out for a few shows.

Being the class act he is, Joey decided to take on drum duty himself and sing instead of canceling shows on his Never Look Back tour. I think he did a pretty good job!

Have a rockin' Summer!

Randy here, as you all should know, The Metal Show is off the air for summer break, but it will return in Fall 2008. Right now it looks like I might be going for the 7-9PM slot on Tuesday nights, so hopefully I will get that slot.

Stay tuned to the blog for further updates. I will try and update the blog with news occasionally throughout the summer, so try and check back once a week or so, cause that is probably about how much I will be updating it.

Right now here is just a cool video that I remember watching when I was younger. One of the first music videos I ever remember watching. This is Faith No More with the song Falling to Pieces!

New Bodom Video

I was surfing the web and found the new Children of Bodom video for the song Hellhounds on My Trail off of their latest album Blooddrunk.

It is a solid offering from the band, and a step up in terms of riffage.

Finals suck, listen to some metal.

Today marks the start of finals week. I just want to remind everyone that The Metal Show will be on air this week, Wednesday from 7-9 p.m., with a special show to bring in the summer.

Listen for lots of newer music and summer themed songs!

Oh, and I finally got the new Testament CD Formation of Damnation in the mail, so I will be playing tracks off that also.

Good luck on finals and I hope you all will listen again next Fall!

Oh, and if you are having a bad day, check out this new trailer for the new Metallica website Mission Metallica (the video quality is better on the website so I recommend going there).

Who cares what other people think, Metallica is still one of my favorite bands of all time!

Only two more shows left for the current school year!

Check out The Metal Show this coming Wednesday from 7-9PM as well as the following week as they are the final shows of the year!

For this week's show, I plan to hopefully play tracks off the new Testament album Formation of Damnation. That is if I ever get the damned thing, I preordered an autographed copy and still haven't received it in the mail. Maybe I should call someone about that.

The final show is going to be a Summer Edition of The Metal Show, full of rockin' tunes and summer time metal tunes to get you through finals week (or the work week if you are out of school/never went). You should definitely check it out!

Make sure to check for the Fall 2008 semester's schedule in the future to see when The Metal Show will be airing after summer break. Also, you can be sure to find the new time slot on this blog when it is known.

Thanks for listening and making this semester the best yet at the University of Iowa for The Metal Show!

Check out this old school Megadeth for the song "99 Ways to Die"! I was thinking of this for some reason the other day.
