Episode 723: That Toxic Show - Exodus Special

November 16, 2022

The Bay Strikes Back tour has struck. Testament and Death Angel were awesome as always. But this time 'round it was the mighty Exodus selling the show for us. So while we're still riding the musical high of finally seeing Zetro live for the first time, we decided to give the Toxic Quintet the spotlight treatment. We enlisted the Exodus expertise of one Matt Copper, co host of our sister show "Wrestling Night In Canada". Mr. Copper is a huge Exodus fan and was stoked to talk. We go over some  our fave albums, songs, live experiences and our own interactions with the thrash legends. This is required listening for all Exodus fans. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we over the Decibel Top 40 Albums of '22 and meeting an NHL hockey legend. Musically, we crank some new and used from Aggression, Laaz Rockitt, Evil, Generation Kill, Freedumb, Serpent's Oath and Mothers of Grave. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 722:  In Jello We Trust - tribute to D.H. Peligro

Episode 722: In Jello We Trust - tribute to D.H. Peligro

November 11, 2022

Recently we lost one of the all time greats in Dead Kennedys drummer D.H. Peligro. This loss was particularly tough as our DK fandom goes back to the band's glory years while we are still in high school. We discovered Jello and the boys along with RAM alum Mark Buell. Mr. Buell is one of the minds behind Connect Humanity, an organization dedicated to bringing the internet to isolated Indigenous areas. And an original Gen X punk rocker. Mark joined us for the episode commemorating the late, great Neil Peart (Rush). But the next time we have him on it will be under better circumstances. We discussed all things DKs. When/how we discovered them, our fave albums and songs, and reminisced about old times. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we hit up the Manitoba Comic Con and local hardcore legends Crown Of Thorns' last gig. Musically we crank some DKs, Autopsy, Government Issue, Black Anvil, R.A.M.B.O., and Konquest. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 720: Sweet Sixteen

October 20, 2022

Happy Bday to us!! This week's episode marks the 16th anniversary of Radioactive Metal being on the air. RAM's humble beginnings were two dedicated Metalheads goofing around in the basement. All at a time when podcasts were barely a thing. Now all these years later and...nothing's changed. We're still luvin' what we're doing on a weekly basis. So to celebrate we let our hair down, had a couple adult bevies and shot the shite'. We discussed the "Dio: Dreamers Never Die" doc, Werewolf By Night, blink-182 tix, Scooby Doo, The Crow reboot and the "Hollywood Ugly" concept. Musically, we crank new and used from Xentrix, Sword, The Exploited, Ghoul, Imprecation, Larkin Poe and Melted Bodies. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 719: Raisin’ Hell - ”Hellraiser” Watch Along

Episode 719: Raisin’ Hell - ”Hellraiser” Watch Along

October 13, 2022

Heavy Metal has always had a strong connection and relationship to the wonderful world of Horror. The #1 topic of discussion amongst Horror conisseurs is the new "Hellraiser" adaptation on Hulu. It's already proving to be a divisive little flick. But what is certain is the impact that the Hellraiser franchise has had on the Metal world. The third installment "Hellraiser 3: Hell On Earth" produced not one but two versions of the theme song by two of the biggest names in our genre. So in honour of the new flick, we sat down with both the Motorhead and Ozzy versions in a "watch along" to compare and pick a fave. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we discuss the up coming Metallica/Raven tribute to Johnny and Marsha Zazula a.k.a Megaforce Records. Musically, we crank some new + used from Raven, Psycroptic, Mortician, Spellbook, Riot City, Ritual Dictates and introduce Upon Your Grave in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 718: One Big Fix - Tribute To Piledriver

Episode 718: One Big Fix - Tribute To Piledriver

September 30, 2022

We had a jam packed week! Jammed enough that we felt it was best to just dedicate the bulk of the show to basically being one big "Metal Fix". More importantly though, we lost one of the all time greats in The Exalted Piledriver. We were huge Piley fans from the get-go and late in his life considered him a friend. So we pay tribute to this great man and crank some key tracks. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we were super busy on the live front, took in the Rolling Stones "Unzipped" exhibit and gave adam levine a big FU! Musically, we crank new and used from the aforementioned Piledriver, D.R.I., KEN Mode, Zombi, Imperial Triumphant, Metalucifer, Vile Creature and Dogs With Jobs! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Episode 717: Between The What And Rust

September 22, 2022

The #1 topic on the lips and minds of Metalheads right now is the new Megadeth album. The majority of the sentiment so far seems to be positive. A return to the glorious 80s Megadeth sound and swagger. So after giving "The Sick, The Dying...And The Dead" a few spins, we made our selves ready to give our thoughts. Our verdict...Sorry, no spoilers. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we crank some new and used from Manilla Road, Jag Panzer, Dead Kennedys, Driller Killer, Sonja, Skeletor, Cobra The Impaler and introduce Hell Diablo in our "Indie Spotlight"! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!
