At first I thought I’d split this into two mixes, but after listening to it, 90 minutes is perfect for this set of songs; it just took on a life of it’s own. There’s a lot of newer stuff on here, with some classics tossed in for depth. I don’t talk on it, partly for length but also partly because I think the heavy mixes sound better with no voice on them. I might change my mind back, but that’s where I stand on this controversial issue for now.
This playlist goes out to my buddy D. Heeter and is thus named – thanks for all your help and your friendship over the last few years man.

I think the reason Aaron even asked me to do some shows here on Radio Gen1us in the first place is ’cause he was hoping I’d do a metal show. ‘Cause I am totally metal. Believe it. Anyway, now I’ve gone and done it and god help those of you who listen. Metal is not an easy genre for many people to listen to; it’s more often ugly than beautiful and it celebrates things we don’t normally like to think about, like aggression and malevolence. But it can also be very rewarding. In this mix, I try to ease you into it, but overall I’m not pulling many punches.

Also, scattered throughout the mix are snippets of audio from one of the most metal movies of all time. You have probably already guessed what the movie is just based on the title of the mix.
