Metal history without mercy! This week Ian Christe (“Sound of the Beast”/Bazillion Points) celebrates ten years of weekly heavy metal history lessons with a litany of bonecracking songs about moshing, stagediving, headbanging, and otherwise going crazy to the strains of pure unadulterated METAL. Since 2004, Bloody Roots has each week focussed on different countries, moments in metal history, metal concepts and techniques, and key figures in the movement; over 500 shows total featuring over 5000 bands. This week’s full contact playlist includes moshpit anthems by Exodus, Motörhead, S.O.D., Obituary, Birdflesh, Cranium, Violator, Testament, D.R.I., Dave Mustaine-era Metallica, Municipal Waste, Hatebreed, and many more.
