Episode 123 – German Special

Saturday, August 29, 2009 Category: Nation Specials Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

MetalCast Episode 123Our last Nation Special was the Aussie one, back in May, suggested by Metalshaman. We had been thinking about a German one for a long time, but since this country has a gazillion number of bands in different genres, choosing was very hard. In March another listener, HellOnTwoWheels, reignited the fuse for the quest for Germany and we soon found what to play. There’s more to come for a later episode, obviously. Once again we focused on less known bands, even if you can’t avoid some bigger ones. Kobe will be your guide again and Polina has some goodies left over from Bloodstock. Enjoy the trip and keep that feedback and support coming. It’s for the benefit of us all, including you.

    Another great episode! When I was growing up in the 80s, we thought all power metal came from Germany. At school there were two camps – those who thought Metallica invented chuggy palm-muted riffs – and those that claimed Helloween invented them. The only metal stocked in the shops in my area was normal stuff, or German stuff. “Helloween” and “Judas” were our first intros to any music outside Metallica, then Deathrow (“Raging Steel” from 87) and Rage (“Reign of fear” from 86). Kai Hansen was our god, then we all followed the Helloween members as they split and did various other projects – eg Gamma Ray, Masterplan, Bassinvaders etc. It was only when I went to university I realised there was life outside of Helloween.

    Love the interview Polina – couldn’t quite catch any of the beer names though – they all sounded very German to me. I guess I just need to go out and buy lots of German beer, then maybe I’ll be able to understand them.lol
    Great episode – lots of fun

      Have you written the suggested beer brands down? (I had you on my mind when asking for specification :crack: )

        Hi Polina,

        You should check these two songs out if your looking for a beer drinker’s song. :beer


        Hope this helps,

          Hi LJ! :faint
          😛 you know, I’m probably the only Cast crew member who doesn’t drink beer 😛
          But perhaps for the sake of the other Casters and our listeners, we should do a drinking song special :crack:

        Always, Pol, always 😀
