This week certainly could've gone better for metal. Most of us woke Monday morning to the startling news that Dave Brockie, aka Oderus Urungus - visiting alien, hilarious aficionado of all things offensive, and lead singer of costumed shock metallers GWAR - had died in his sleep of unknown causes Sunday, March 23rd.

Naturally, co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) felt it only right to devote a nice, twitching, juicy slab of this week's podcast to Dave/Oderus. [00:50:45] His sudden death will likely have a massive, throbbing, aching impact on the future of metal culture, an impact as understated and yet as ever-present as his three-decade influence while alive and killing.

It's not all bummer news, though. We have some live concert adventures to share as well. Kevin caught performances by two renowned progressive metal bands: The Ocean [00:08:58] and Between The Buried And Me. [00:37:15] Mike saw thrashers Destruction [00:00:44] and experienced a unique, unexpected, trend-bucking grassroots event dubbed Annihilation Fest, held in Lynchburg, Virginia. [00:27:01]

We'd like to thank Metal Blade Records for their permission to use GWAR's "Zombies, March!" to open up this special episode, which you can check out here.
