Life is so strange… This week’s metal history lesson breathes in a bouquet of classic 1980s new wave hits by Devo, Depeche Mode, Wall of Voodoo, and Gary Numan, as devoured and metallized by Demolition Hammer, Metallica, Deadhorse, Vader, Firewind, Fear Factory, Converge, Celtic Frost, Fu Manchu, and others. See what happens when headbangers go totally tubular… and know your Roots!
Context is everything! Rejoice in the heavy words of SOUND OF THE BEAST: The Complete Headbanging History of Heavy Metal.

Great show today brother!
Couldn’t believe how many songs you found. Great show.
I know Deftones has done some New Wave covers too because Chino is really into those bands. Maybe a pt 2 one day?
Thanks, this show really was sitting around half-finished for a couple years, it did take a long time to find all these tracks, ha!
