In this episode, Keith talks with metal aficionado (and cousin) Jon Palombi about an album by Anthrax both of them like (yet no one else seems to), an era of their career the band is entirely ignoring and thoughts on Jon's first viewing of the Metallica documentary 'Some Kind of Monster'.

Keith talks with David Masciotra this episode about David's book on Metallica's "Metallica" aka "The Black Album" as well as the Black album itself and its place in metal.
Note number 1: This is totally coincidence I did back-to-back episodes on Black albums. - Keith
Note number 2: click here for an engaging back and forth between Masciotra and DX Ferris on The Black album, Metallica and Slayer.
Continuing from the Philly theme of the last two weeks, Keith sits down with Phill Most Chill (Rap Sheet column on digging for beats, his online column World of Beats) to talk about records, good music and his rhyming endeavors with DJ Format and Paul Nice (Fabreze Brothers). This is part one of the conversation, part two will be online next week.

On this episode, Keith sits down with Godzilla fan, Transformers music restorer and heavy metal fan Jim Figurski to talk about restoration, Godzilla music, heavy metal and a relatively obscure thrash album that happens to be Jim's favorite.
One additional note: at the six minute mark or so I play the first, non-restored clip from Jim, then a few minutes later play the second restored clip, so you can hear the difference for yourself. These are the original and restored/remastered files of a track called "No one gets out alive".
From Jim: "it was the most challenging of all the tracks and took me 40 hours to do this!"
