Episode Info:

CHR welcomes Doug to the show with an episode sure to trip everyone's "Is this really metal?" alarms. We start with new albums from the Southern/occult rock inspired Diablo Blvd and then see what horror punk icon Doyle is up to. Doug gets thrown into the deep end of the indie pool when he's forced to confront the bizarre antics of Troldhaugen, but he responds by inducting Machine Head's venture into nu-metal into Heavy Metal Valhalla. Please help improve the show by taking the 2017 Listener Survey. Survey closes November 30th!
