ABOUT THIS EPISODE
I know I say this pretty much every time, but there's a whole load of new stuff in this latest edition of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show. You have my cast iron guarantee you will hear something in this show that you've never heard before. You may even discover your new favourite band. There's certainly enough candidates. Before I started compiling the playlist even I'd never heard seventeen of these songs before.
Not only is there an absolute f*ck-tonne of new stuff, there's also all your favourite regular features like Covered, Spotlight (where I play some tracks from a band you may have forgotten about - shame on you!) and Russian Roulette (where YOU can pick the songs).
As usual, if you want to get in touch to ask for a song or contribute to Russian Roulette or suggest a band for Covered or Spotlight, you can talk to me via the Contact page , on Twitter @wyrdwaysrock or on Facebook . If you become a Patreon Subscriber at patreon.com/metalscienceteacher you also get access to the Discord, you get the show at higher sound quality and earlier than anyone else AS WELL AS several exclusive subscriber-only bonus shows such as The Thrash Hour, The Power Hour and The Trad Metal Meltdown which are all the ideal length for your workout, commute or whatever else you need an concentrated burst of PROPER HEAVY METAL to get you through.
Anyway. Time to set your Mosh buffers to maximum and redline the Trash drives!

Unlucky for some? It certainly was for this particular edition of The Forge. Just as I was starting to pull the track listing together, the amount of new music that tickled my particular aural taste buds decreased to the point where it was a choice between pausing to stay with "all killer" or carry on with "filler".
I obviously decided to keep to my personal standard of "all new killer, no filler" for my show.
The unfortunate side effect was that you, my loyal listener, had to wait a few weeks for the next edition of the show.
Hopefully you agree with me that the wait was worth it.
The next one shouldn't take anywhere near as long.
If you're enjoying the show, please pass the link on to anyone you know who you think might enjoy it too. If you're in a band or know one that needs some extra attention, send me some music and if I like it, I'll play it on the show. If you're able and want to help in a more concrete way, you can head over to patreon.com/metalscienceteacher and for the price of a coffee at Starbucks (other coffee chains are available), you can get yourself a mention on the show and access to the Patrons-only Discord, giving you direct influence on what happens in the show.
Spread The Word.

I know what you're thinking.
Has it been six weeks or only five?
In all this excitement I've lost count myself. But being as this is WWRS: The Forge, the world's most powerful podcast and can blow your head clean off... You've got to ask yourself one question... "Do I feel lucky?"... Well, do ya?
Well, you should because what I've got for you is nearly two hours of quality Hard Rock and Metal from all over the world.
But this is WWRS: The Forge, so that's only to be expected, really, isn't it?
If you like what you hear, you could help me out by heading over to patreon.com/metalscienceteacher and dropping me the price of a coffee or a beer. If you do, you'll get access to the WWRS: The Forge Discord server, you'll get access to the latest edition of The Forge before anyone else and the ability to request songs (and guarantee them being played), suggest subjects for WHO Knows and new Heavy Metal Science Teacher videos.
Not bad for a couple of quid a month, is it?

Four weeks into lockdown and I think it's safe to say there's going to be a few people going a bit stir crazy. Although most of the crazy seems to be coming from the American side of The Pond. It would seem the old saying "You can't cure stupid" has got itself a new second half of the sentence. I do have a little bit of a rant about that, so if you are a self-identifying "conservative", you might want to skip on, especially if you are of a more sensitive disposition.
In terms of music, it's business as usual. Loads of high quality Metal from all over the world, including Italy (what is it about Italy? They're producing some excellent stuff and have been for a good few years now), Ukraine, the UK and plenty of other places from all around the planet.
As usual, if you like what you hear, you could help me out by heading over to patreon.com/metalscienceteacher and dropping me the price of a coffee or a beer. If you do, you'll get access to the WWRS: The Forge Discord server, you'll get access to the latest edition of The Forge before anyone else and the ability to request songs (and guarantee them being played), suggest subjects for WHO Knows and new Heavy Metal Science Teacher videos.

Don't panic... Empire Of The Clouds isn't one of the long songs in this week's edition of The Forge. I do have SOME taste and discernment!
Anyway, getting away from slagging off what is probably the worst song recorded by one of my favourite bands...
Remember back in the old days of The Wyrd Ways Rock Show I used to have a bit of a weakness for playing very, very long songs? You will probably be glad to know I still have that weakness. There are a number of tracks in this week's show that last longer than 10 minutes.
One even clocks in at over 20 minutes.
As for the rest... well, really, all the songs bar the one I play out on are brand new, having arrived in my Inbox within the last week or so. Give the show a listen and you will be treated to new songs by Old School Metal bands like Cirith Ungol, Nightblade and Thor and a selection of new up-and-comers like Sinisthra, Kult Of The Skull God and Deathless Legacy.
Only the Helloween track, which was requested by one of our Patrons, Ms Steph Hewitt, has been on my main music hard drive for longer than a week.
Anyway... Mosh buffers to maximum and play it loud!
