We kicked off the episode in full "Darrinsky" mode, and that lasted throughout the episode leading to many laughs. We discussed the most recent developments in the Tim Lambesis trial. Sid had a startling world-exclusive interview. We found the worst rendition of the American national anthem. We discussed the new Five Finger Death Punch/Rob Halford collaboration as well as the singer of Linkin Park joining Stone Temple Pilots. This led to us getting into a discussion about Kanye West and some IKEA meatballs.
Here is this week's playlist:
Fight – Nailed to the Gun
Kvelertak – Ulvetid
Testament – Man Kills Mankind
Lamb of God - Ruin
There won't be a new live episode of the show next week due to the Memorial Day holiday, however there will be a new "Kiss of Death" mixtape to be heard!

Lambesis had plead not guilty to one count of solicitation of murder after attempting to hire a hitman to murder his wife. New video footage has surfaced from inside the courtroom showing Lambesis' new defense attorney and his reaction when his new bail was set. (more…)
Tim Lambesis isn't going anywhere. At the conclusion of the As I Lay Dying frontman's bail hearing earlier today, the judge lowered his bail to $2 million, which Lambesis' attorney claims is still too expensive for Lambesis.

Full disclosure: I loved Korn all the way up until college, then I discovered Slayer. It was a glorious time. The band lost me after Issues and then they just kept putting out sub-par material. I remember re-visiting some of their older stuff not too long ago, and deeming it still listenable. Although, I probably won't ever go out of my way to listen to Korn again, I have no problem with the band. If I were still into the band, I'd probably be really excited that Head is back in the band and I would love to watch footage of his return to the band. If such a person is you, you are in luck.

We knew this was coming, they just had to confirm it. At next week's celebration of Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman's life, the Westboro bapitist church will stage a protest. (more…)
