Q: What's a Pantera? A: 1) A class of jungle cat 2) A bitchin' Italian sports car 3) One of metal's most influential and kick-ass bands 4) All of the above. If you answered 4, you are correct! And we're talking about them all! But mostly that last one. This week we discuss; the hairspray and Disco Owl Demons involved in 'I Am The Night' (1985), smoking a honey-dip joint to 'Cowboys From Hell' (1990), Chris Pratt's favourite metal album - 'Vulgar Display Of Power' (1992), the at-least-heavier-than-Lionel-Richie 'Far Beyond Driven' (1994), and Phil Anselmo's Boomhauer-esque stage banter on 'Official Live: 101 Proof' (1997). We also touch on Devin's legit trypophobia, Fraz's love of Dunkaroos, and if getting punched in the face thirty times for $300 would be worth it (SPOILER: it would). It's an episode so full of southern flair and all-day aggression, you'll be positively pawing at yourself by the end! WHATIDJA SAY?!

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!

You know damn well that any podcast about grindcore that starts off with a discussion about Olympic male figure skaters has got to be good. In this episode, we talk Napalm Death (of course), Cattle Decapitation, Nasum, Pig Destroyer and Fuck The Facts (amongst others)! We also try to pronounce 'anthropocene', watch a video of a cow taking a dump on a guy's head, and make references to Launchpad McQuack AND Roch Voisine - all in one show!! More uncomfortable than falling asleep on pile of lock boxes, more terrifying than Kelowna: Land of the Stilt-Walkers, it's the grindcore episode! (Spoiler: the drums are fast.)
