Episode Summary: This week, the Alloy Boys have an interview with letlive. that Matt did back in January when they played in Salem, OR at the Wasteland. They were feeling pretty proggy this week, so there's a bunch of prog metal on this episode. They didn't figure anyone would mind. UPDATE: The voting for the Thrash and Burn Tour has ended, and Across the Sun did not win. However, with the list of mediocre bands that were voting options, at least a good band won. Congrats to the guys from Volumes!

Episode Summary: In this installment we play some killer music, as always, and roll out an interview Alloy Matt did with Andy Biersack of Black Veil Brides. *NOTE: Alloy Matt did this interview for the Standby Records podcast when the Alloy Boys were doing that, but negotiations on a contract with them fell through. Since he still had the interview on the hard drive, Alloy Matt decided to re-purpose this interview for this show. We hope you like it!

Episode Summary: This is the Alloy Podcast, Summer Slaughter Spectacular with As Blood Runs Black. This episode is a little different than most as Nick and Leche are on the entire episode.

They talk with Nick and Leche about As Blood Runs Black's new album Instinct and the recording process.

Episode Summary: Hosts Alloy Matt and Alloy Ben are still talking about Summer Slaughter! I guess then that it's more than appropriate they have an interview with Within the Ruins on this episode. They also talk about the unfortunate happenings with Coheed and Cambria's bassist and his recent legal trouble. Plus, they want to introduce all their listeners to some pretty crazy and techy bands, so if you want to hear some new stuff, then pull up a new tab and get your Facebook, MySpace or YouTube open so…

Episode Summary: Matt and Ben went up to Portland, this time on Metal Blade Records's guest list, so they we could get a few interviews. We haven't aired the other two yet, so we won't tell you who they are, but Unearth was way too cool! We have been Unearth fans since just after The Oncoming Storm was released, and unfortunately for Matt, that showed in the interview. Matt's fanboy status was over the top on this interview... sorry to the listeners for having to listen to the awkwardness…

Episode Summary: ALLOY co-host Matt Jacobs attended ZomBcon this halloween and met lots of great people. He didn't do a lot of interviews while he was there, but he made a lot of great connections.

Episode Summary: Ben didn't actually go to the gym with Upon A Burning Body, he met with them at the Hawthorne Theatre in Potland, OR. We're calling this episode "At the Gym" because Matt and Ben decided to discuss this trend that happens to be running through metal right now. Most people call it Crabcore, but Matt and Ben call it "Squat Thrusts."
