Put on your red hats and khakis, it's time for our Nu-Metal episode! We discuss this ever-polarizing sub-genre/moment in time with our good pal Peter Carlone of award-winning comedy duo Peter n' Chris, just in time to pick his wedding music! The three of us travel all the way back to the year 2000 (or slightly earlier), where combining misspelled words to make your band name and dressing in weird pants was the order of the day. Discussion includes: the electronic scrapings and Seinfeld bass on Mudvayne's 'L.D.50'; how Limp Bizkit's 'Significant Other' makes Fred Durst seem whiter than the cast of Full House; Korn's 'Follow The Leader' and that time Peter went to a Korn show with a bunch of grandmas; how Linkin Park's 'Hybrid Theory' is as awesome as it is annoying; and Devin loves to hate how much Fraz loves Papa Roach's 'Infest'. We also go through a master list of nu-metal bands, go deep on the crossover between Nu-Metal and Christian metal, and unleash a virtual army of homing pigeons. It's one for the ages, y'all. LOOK INTO DEEZ EYEZ!

There are 666 reasons why this is a milestone Devin and Hell episode. Here are just a few: It's our first two-parter, because we're finally talking Sabbath! Specifically, their first five untouchable albums (Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath)! Devin gets rid of his weird old curtain! Fraz does is Sega impression! The lads witness a real-life car accident during the show! And Devin tries to keep the episode on the rails while Fraz polishes off a peanut butter cookie! Plus; we use an unreasonable amount of movie analogies, discuss Tony Iommi's role as metal's 'Riff Santa', unpack Devin's dislike of cymbals, make fun of Ozzy Osbourne being scared in a castle, and Fraz likes the song 'Changes' so much, it will likely make you uncomfortable! Finally, a podcast you can grow a beard to! It's Black Sabbath! Part 1!
Homework from Hell for Episode 12: Black Sabbath Part 2
2. Technical Ecstasy
3. Heaven and Hell
4. Born Again
It's our first ever tech problems-free show, and we couldn't be more excited! In this episode, Devin gets schooled in and terrified by the ways of old-school death metal!
We talk Entombed, Cannibal Corpse, At The Gates, Death, Carcass, and so much more! We come up with some sweet ideas for Cannibal Corpse merch (don't steal them), and wonder which death metal band is the richest (monetarily, not in grotesque imagery; that would really be splitting hairs).
Plus Devin does his best impression of an owl laughing, and Fraz dishes out a gold star (or is it a pentagram?)! EPIC.
