Set those Home Alone traps and bleach those anuses, it's time for the GWAR episode! Devin and Fraz have a real swell time talking all things Scumdogs of the Universe, from their discography and origin story to their has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed live act to their appearance on the Joan Rivers Show. This episode's discussion also includes but is not limited to: the GWAR comic book, viking funerals, how the 90's were a decade of farts, which movie Devin saw nine times in the theatre, and just how sweet a GWAR/No Doubt collab would be. Devin spends most of the show under a dark metal cumulous cloud of airborne influenza, but Fraz makes up for it with cool action figure ideas. We make a Slipknot/GWAR comparison. We discuss how GWAR's costumes look like melting Disney mascots. AND we give shout-outs to classy Vancouver musicians Devin Townsend and Woolworm! In short, this one has it all. Why are you my mom? GWAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR.

Well, we kick off our first proper episode in too long by gathering around ye olde youtube machine and watching a lizard squirt blood from its own eye, so you know we've got a real corker on our hands. Eventually we get around to talking about Incantation and their logo of questionable substance, Autopsy and their hidden-baby cover art, Cryptopsy and their penchant for taking the Nestea plunge, Vomitory and their namesake's theatrical roots, and how Bloodbath are the Travelling Wilburys of death metal! All of this, plus Devin scares some construction workers, Fraz sings some Miley, and we get down to the bottom of a few fathomless mysteries. It's a mixed bag of death in an episode heavy enough to scare ghosts! BRUTAL.

After a brief and brutal hiatus, the lads are back and answering mail from our *fans! Devin and Fraz take to email and Twitter to answer your (church-)burning questions, and give you a death-whispering glimpse into what's to come on the next round of gore-obsessed episodes! And Devin gets a few cool new nicknames along the way. It's time to peer into the most Satanic sack of all!
It's the second part of our EPIC Black Sabbath episode, and it's a doozy! Devin drops some major car knowledge (Triumph Spitfires, Disco Cars, Ozzy-Mobiles, et al) AND describes his latest run-in with a post-apocalyptic desert space cowboy! Then Fraz sneezes out brain! Eventually, we get around to talking about: Bill Ward's wife's sweet red tights on the cover of Sabotage (1975); how 'It's Alright' from Technical Ecstasy (1976) should have been called 'Invasion of the Flower People'; the fact that Heaven and Hell (1980) would have been EVEN better with a guest appearance from Tom Sizemore; Born Again (1983)'s definitely-not-shocking cover; and how the band that put out 13 (2013) should have been called Sabbath Against The Machine. Plus, 1992's Dehumanizer is hidden gem you should consider thinking about listening to eventually. And further discussion on becoming a professional Ozzy-wrangler, as well as on our potential spin-off show, 'Dentures and Hell'. It's part two of our first-ever two-parter! We're all out of parts!

In an especially silly - even for us - and surprisingly touching episode of Devin and Hell, the lads discuss a very popular and polarizing act; Slipknot! We run down the band's entire discography, as well as partake in some big-time mask talk (which members' masks need daily uncorking, anyway?), pitch a Slipknot cartoon, and discuss how the band was the exact metal gateway drug the early-00's needed. Fraz celebrates Devin's tastes getting heavier, and finds the time to have a complete breakdown and make up a few words again. All this, and Devin gets a parcel delivered! So fun! Liberate your bananas and get in here!
