OUR WEEKLY TALK PODCAST

ABOUT THE SHOW

The Metal Injection Livecast is a weekly hang out masquerading as a live podcast recording available every week for free download. We discuss the topics of the week, metal-related or not and provide our points of view, scorn, and ridicule. We also look deeply into our own lives (including embarrassing bedroom and bathroom habits). We have skewered religion, politics, terrible television and movies, pompous celebrities, metal musicians, callers, and each other. In a world of metal that is often ridiculously self-important, nothing is off-limits to laugh at.

The podcast is also known for its original game shows. The most popular game show is Death or No Death, where the players are given absurd metal band names and have to decide if they are real or fake. Past celebrity contestants include Gunface of The Red Chord, Travis Ryan of Cattle Decapitation, and Mark Heylmun and the late Mitch Lucker of Suicide Silence. Thrash It or Trash It takes advantage of the live format of the show as the hosts solicit music from unsigned bands submitted by listeners who call in or post a link in our live chat room. Sexual Jeopardy is the answer-and-question game testing our contestants' knowledge of perverted deviant sexual acts.

The host of the show is Rob, moving things along, asking questionable follow-ups and making flimsy segues during interviews and creating the Thor Shredsteen character, whose voice bleeds into any other impersonation Rob attempts. Noa is the producer of the show, manning the board (so to speak), as well as a co-host, and is completely (and sometimes frighteningly) open about her past sexual experiences. 3D is the comedy enforcer, with the zingers, the comedy effects and fantastic impersonations of legendary metal musicians such as Dave Mustaine, James Hetfield and Danzig. Sid is the anti-host of the show and Minister of Hate, whose purpose in life is to disagree with whatever is on the table, find the most offensive thing to say possible at all times, and generally spread the philosophy of being a miserable person.

The Livecast has conducted interviews with some of the biggest names in metal including members of Lamb of God, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Trivium, Suicide Silence and The Black Dahlia Murder, to name a few. Whereas most metal media provide one way info access, we offer one of the few truly two-way interactive interview platforms in metal, allowing our fans to call in and ask their metal gods questions.

The show is truly international with callers and dedicated fans from such far-reaching places as Australia, Colombia, England, Norway, India and the Middle East. We are everything from midnight snack entertainment in Europe, to morning drive radio in Australia.

With thousands of downloads per week, fans all over the world and 200 episodes under our belt, the Metal Injection LiveCast is a runaway comedy freight train.

What is the worst band you ever heard played on the Livecast?
Virtually every band we ever played on Thrash It or Trash It.

Corn or flour tortilla?
Hard corn tortillas all the way

What is your favorite moment from the history of the Livecast?
My favorite moment would be taking 16 shots in less than hour for one of my birthday episodes and then not remembering the last half of the show, or the rest of the night.

Do you wipe standing up or sitting down? Standing up, I'm not a monster.

What's your favorite video game? Portal 2 or Super Mario Brothers 3

How would you describe losing your virginity? In one word, embarrassing.

Raw, latex, or sheepskin? Once you're in a steady relationship, raw all the way!

If you weren't doing the Livecast, what would you do instead with that time? I would most likely be getting high and hanging out with my friends, so basically the Livecast, but with nobody listening….so basically, the Livecast.

What is your favorite podcast/radio show other than the Livecast? I really enjoy You Made It Weird by Pete Holmes, it's a fun podcast where he interviews a lot of my favorite comedians.

Who are your life heroes? The fans are the real heroes!

If the Livecast was a boy band, what cliche would you represent? I'd be the cute one, obviously.

Any final words for the Livecastards? I am truly haaaaaaahmbled that you are a fan of the show and listen to us goof around. Thank you for the support.

Noa

Who are you? Noa

What do you contribute to the Livecast?
Boobs… beyond the boobs, I manage our 'studio'. I connect all the wires, setup & break down the equipment, I engineer the show, edit & mix the audio and every now and then I make a funny.

What is your favorite metal band? I hate this question. I do not have one favorite but according to Livecast mythology it's Falconer.

What is your favorite non-metal band?
I like this question. First ones that pop in my head are Dredg and Porcupine Tree. I also enjoy music of the contemporary jazz nature like Trioscapes, Chick Corea, Bill Evans, Attack of The Giant Squid, Michael Brecker T.R.A.M. etc. I like guitarists like Pat Metheny, Vinnie Moore, Satriani & Tony McCalpine. I love music from South America, bossa novas, sambas, rhumbas and Spanish flamenco. I'm pretty sure that I've gone on a tangent from the original question.

What is the worst band you ever heard played on the Livecast?
Sorry I didn't bother using my brain space remembering their name…

Corn or flour tortilla? Corn baby.

What is your favorite moment from the history of the Livecast?
I enjoy every moment of the Livecast otherwise I would've lost interest a long time ago. My favorite aspect of the Livecast is that I can sit in a room with my friends, talk about stuff and have it engage someone that I've never met before. When people that listen contribute via chatroom, comments or calls, it really adds another dimension. That is my favorite part.

Do you wipe standing up or sitting down?
I feel like there would be way too many repercussions to wiping while standing up.

What's your favorite video game?
Bioshock series, Megaman X (and some others I can't remember the numbers), Legend of Zelda, Mario 3 & Super Mario World. These days my only video game is my guitar.

How would you describe losing your virginity? I definitely lost.

Raw, latex, or sheepskin? Au naturale.

If you weren't doing the Livecast, what would you do instead with that time?
Playing guitar in the corner of my living room all alone. I'm probably high too.

What is your favorite podcast/radio show other than the Livecast? I like to listen to Opie & Anthony, Howard Stern, After O & A with Prime Time Sam Roberts, I occasionally listen to Sam's podcast too. I work in talk radio so I try to avoid listening.

Who are your life heroes? I look up to people who reach success using their brain and will power.

If the Livecast was a boy band, what cliche would you represent?
You mean, the Livecast isn't a boy band?

Any final words for the Livecastards?
If you ever travel back in time, don't step on anything, because even the tiniest change can alter the future in ways you can't imagine.

3D

Who are you? Darren "3D" Delgado

What do you contribute to the Livecast?
Fart sound effects, song parodies, good-cop portion of the good-cop/bad-cop act with Sid to produce offensive jokes that I then scold him for.

What is your favorite metal band? Enbilulugugal

What is your favorite non-metal band? "Weird Al" Yankovic

What is the worst band you ever heard played on the Livecast? I can't decide between Emmure, Mushroomhead and Metallica.

Hosting the first Death or No Death with celebrity contestant Gunface.

Do you wipe standing up or sitting down? Sitting down.

What's your favorite video game? Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

How would you describe losing your virginity? Like Passover seders at the epileptic's house: awkward, and lots of spilled liquids and apologizing.

Raw, latex, or sheepskin? Whatever the sheep prefers.

If you weren't doing the Livecast, what would you do instead with that time? Doing the Livecast anyway in my room to entertain my cat.

What is your favorite podcast/radio show other than the Livecast? Howard Stern.

Who are your life heroes? Richard Pryor, Bertrand Russell, Bill Nye, Jim Cornette, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Keith Hernandez, my grandmother.

If the Livecast was a boy band, what cliche would you represent?
I would combine the roles of the Jewish accountant and stage-side security muscle.

Any final words for the Livecastards?
If there is one thing I hope people take away from our stupid show as a life lesson, it is "don't take being a metalhead too seriously". Nothing is sacred and untouchable. Laugh at yourself and laugh at everything else.

Sid

Who are you?
I am Sid. I probably don't like you. Unless you think I'm the funniest host, then you're a-ok in my book. But your taste in music probably sucks either way.

What do you contribute to the Livecast? Negativity, farts.

What is your favorite metal band?
Slayer, I guess. But asking me to pick a favorite metal band is like asking me to pick a favorite romantic comedy. Even if I have a "favorite", it's still probably pretty fucking low on my overall list.

What is your favorite non-metal band? Fugazi.

What is the worst band you ever heard played on the Livecast?
Can I say all of them? All of them.

Corn or flour tortilla? My wife would stab me if I said corn, so uh, flour.

What is your favorite moment from the history of the Livecast?
Any moment that involves someone laughing at something I said. I'm very desperate for love and praise. Also, probably that time a caller from Venezuela or some such far-flung location said I was an asshole.

Do you wipe standing up or sitting down? Standing up because I'm not a lady.

What's your favorite video game?
Been loving the NBA2K series lately. I spend many many hours of my life simming seasons and creating great teams and then starting over and doing it again. It's very sad.

How would you describe losing your virginity? Had to happen eventually.

Raw, latex, or sheepskin? Raw whenever possible.

If you weren't doing the Livecast, what would you do instead with that time? Sitting on my couch watching TV, maybe napping.

What is your favorite podcast/radio show other than the Livecast?
Lately it's been the Basketball Jones daily podcast. A bunch of dopey Canadians talking about basketball, but somehow it's brilliant and hilarious.

Who are your life heroes? Trust fund kids. Ian MacKaye. Louis CK.

If the Livecast was a boy band, what cliche would you represent? The fat one.

Any final words for the Livecastards? Kill yourselves, but download the Livecast first.
