Episode 48 - Death By The Dad (with Chad Gailey)

Metal festivals: we all hate them. From Psycho Las Vegas to Festum Carnis, these cursed gatherings serve as the bane of every true banger's existence. In this episode, the Dads sit down with Chad Gailey (Necrot, Mortuous, Palace of Worms, Scolex, Atrament, Phrenelith, etc etc etc etc) to get to the bottom of every Parenthead's nightmare scenario: the dreaded FEST. Music: Nunslaughter, "Death By The Dead" Necrot, "The Blade" PS Shelby was wrong, there are 4 Nunslaughter full-lengths, not 2. NEW contact: deathmetaldads@gmail.com

Episode 47 - Like Father Like Son (with Calvyn & Ezra)

The Dads convene for the very first time on DMD with their own offspring Calvyn and Ezra, resulting in a horrific mishmash of bad movies, bad jokes, dad jokes, Jar Jar Binks, Wilford Brimley, and Gigli Allin. Stereotypes are reinforced, iron is pumped, and topical wisdom is dispensed in this thrill-a-minute crash course in parenting gone wrong! Music: Extremity, "Like Father Like Son" Manowar, "Carry On"

Episode 45 - Rot To Dad (with Nick Katich)

In today's installment, Aesop and Shelby are joined by their pal Nick Katich (the morbid wizard behind the one-man black metal juggernaut Palace of Worms) to wax moronic about weird Finnish death metal, mispronunciations, selling out, cashing in, fighting The Man, and "sounding like Autopsy". Did you know Nick is a mortician? Yep, and he sure has some crazy fucking stories. So sit back, pour yourself some corpse juice, and have a listen! Music: Sentenced, "Rot To Dead" Palace of Worms "Rot From The Stars"

Episode 44 - Born Dad (with Harri Kuokkanen)

Finland's own Harri Kuokkanen (Hooded Menace, Ride For Revenge, Horse Latitudes, Hail Conjurer) sits down with the Dads for an in-depth discussion on Danzig, weightlifting, Body Count, religion, and the delicate cultural intricacies of pissing in public.

Good news, Parentheads! The Dads are back with their third annual Mother's Day episode, featuring very very special returning guest Jeri Scardina (Shelby's mom)! How monumental is the occasion? Well, let's just say there was A FUCKING EARTHQUAKE right when these fools hit the record button! Truly an Act of God, and a DMD episode not to be missed! Music: Vomitory, "The Voyage" The Little Girls, "The Earthquake Song"

Episode 41 - Dad Millennium (There Shall Never Be Another Dawn) (with Justin Ennis)

In today's episode, the Dads are joined by drum wizard and BFF Justin Ennis (Void Omnia, Vale, Ulthar, Cheap Gwar) for a lengthy discussion about Sweden's Oxiplegatz--the alien-fucking, lazer gun-toting, sexy cyborg-having intergalactic alter-ego of former At The Gates guitarist Alf Svensson. Also, they call everyone posers and get to the bottom of why it sucks so much to be a show booker. We were very tired when we recorded this. Music: Oxiplegatz, "Dark Millennium (There Shall Never Be Another Dawn)" Harvey Milk, "A Good Thing Gone"
