A Long (And Probably Tearful) Goodbye!

May 12, 2017


Tonight, unfortunately, is my last night here as a host on the Metal Music Machine.  Being that it was my last night, I decided to take you all on a little journey that has been my experience as a metal head.  I started out playing the songs that really got me into metal, particularly N.I.B. by Black Sabbath, but Alice In Chains and Metallica’s influence cannot be overstated.  Next, I played songs from the three band that played at the first show I ever went to see live, Love and Death, Asking Alexandria, and one of my favorite all time bands, KoRn.  After I played songs from my senior year of high school, one of my favorites, being Ovid’s Withering.  Then we journey into my first year of college, where I met the original host of the Metal Music Machine, Nate and he introduced me to the rest of the amazing bands on this list.  My favorites being Aftermath, Anomalie, and Behemoth.  That brought me to the end of the show and the end of my career here, not only as host of the Metal Music Machine, but at Radio K.  Those were just the bands I was able to play, I would have liked to throw in a Ghost track or some Celtic Frost to commemorate the time I spent co-hosting with one of the most knowledgeable people I know when it comes to all music, not just metal, Eliot, but alas I could only play so much.  While it may be a sad departure, I know I am leaving the show in the competent hands of Abby, who has done an amazing job already.  The past three year hosting the Metal Music Machine has been one of the most fun and amazing experiences that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in.  Love you all!! Keep on kicking ass and taking names!!
