About Us

What the hell is the appeal of metal music, anyway? Comedian Devin Mackenzie is about to find out, or fall in league with Satan trying. With devoted metal enthusiast and fellow comedian Fraz Wiest as his guide, Devin learns all about metal's intricate tapestry of sub-genres, bands, album art, and so much more! It's hilarity and brutality. It's educating and disturbing. It's Devin and Hell!

19 PANTERA

EQ: What's a Pantera? A: 1) A class of jungle cat 2) A bitchin' Italian sports car 3) One of metal's most influential and kick-ass bands 4) All of the above. If you answered 4, you are correct! And we're talking about them all! But mostly that last one. This week we discuss; the hairspray and Disco Owl Demons involved in 'I Am The Night' (1985), smoking a honey-dip joint to 'Cowboys From Hell' (1990), Chris Pratt's favourite metal album - 'Vulgar Display Of Power' (1992), the at-least-heavier-than-Lionel-Richie 'Far Beyond Driven' (1994), and Phil Anselmo's Boomhauer-esque stage banter on 'Official Live: 101 Proof' (1997). We also touch on Devin's legit trypophobia, Fraz's love of Dunkaroos, and if getting punched in the face thirty times for $300 would be worth it (SPOILER: it would). It's an episode so full of southern flair and all-day aggression, you'll be positively pawing at yourself by the end! WHATIDJA SAY?!

18 Black Death Pt. II

EYou can't spell funeral without fun! And you can't spell Devin & Hell without Devin and Fraz. On this week's show, we take another deep dive into the world of black metal! We start off with a rundown of the stacks of books holding up our microphones, and believe it or not, things get even crazier from there. We talk Austria's Belphegor and what exactly constitutes a Bondage Goat Zombie; England's Cradle Of Filth and their hot take on Gothic Metal; Sweden's Dark Funeral and what it is to practice Rational Satanism; Norway's Enslaved and their amazing, planet-building progressive style; AND Norway's Satyricon - winners of multiple Eurammies! Plus, we sneak in a mini Wonder Woman review, Devin has pressing concerns about what his grandma would think of black metal, and Fraz breaks a glass like the classic klutz that he is. Remember, you get as much Satan as you give, so get a little more with Black Metal Part II! Jeff's here!!

17 SODOM

ESnuggle up with a cat called Angelripper and enjoy our Sodom episode! In this show, we talk 'renovictions', asbestos, and British Columbia's haunted McDonald's barge! Eventually we get around to covering German thrash legends Sodom and their killer discography, including: Persecution Mania (1987), Agent Orange (1989), 'Til Death Do Us Unite (1997), M-16 (2001), and Decision Day (2016)! But we don't just talk Sodom and how they're kind of all the great 80's metal bands in a blender. No sir! We also discuss Robocop versions of other characters from pop culture; nipples on bat-suits; Devin's passion for noodley guitar solos; Fraz's complete inability to remember the term 'provocative'; AND a quick breakdown of the lauded birdwatching festival, 'The Big Day'. There is also A LOT of mascot discussion, - even for us - so please join us for an episode that can only be described as relentlessly shredtastic! THE PODCAST. THAT DOESN'T. BURN!

16 Nu Metal with Peter Carlone

EPut on your red hats and khakis, it's time for our Nu-Metal episode! We discuss this ever-polarizing sub-genre/moment in time with our good pal Peter Carlone of award-winning comedy duo Peter n' Chris, just in time to pick his wedding music! The three of us travel all the way back to the year 2000 (or slightly earlier), where combining misspelled words to make your band name and dressing in weird pants was the order of the day. Discussion includes: the electronic scrapings and Seinfeld bass on Mudvayne's 'L.D.50'; how Limp Bizkit's 'Significant Other' makes Fred Durst seem whiter than the cast of Full House; Korn's 'Follow The Leader' and that time Peter went to a Korn show with a bunch of grandmas; how Linkin Park's 'Hybrid Theory' is as awesome as it is annoying; and Devin loves to hate how much Fraz loves Papa Roach's 'Infest'. We also go through a master list of nu-metal bands, go deep on the crossover between Nu-Metal and Christian metal, and unleash a virtual army of homing pi...

15 GWAR

ESet those Home Alone traps and bleach those anuses, it's time for the GWAR episode! Devin and Fraz have a real swell time talking all things Scumdogs of the Universe, from their discography and origin story to their has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed live act to their appearance on the Joan Rivers Show. This episode's discussion also includes but is not limited to: the GWAR comic book, viking funerals, how the 90's were a decade of farts, which movie Devin saw nine times in the theatre, and just how sweet a GWAR/No Doubt collab would be. Devin spends most of the show under a dark metal cumulous cloud of airborne influenza, but Fraz makes up for it with cool action figure ideas. We make a Slipknot/GWAR comparison. We discuss how GWAR's costumes look like melting Disney mascots. AND we give shout-outs to classy Vancouver musicians Devin Townsend and Woolworm! In short, this one has it all. Why are you my mom? GWAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR.

14 Miscellaneous Death Metal

EWell, we kick off our first proper episode in too long by gathering around ye olde youtube machine and watching a lizard squirt blood from its own eye, so you know we've got a real corker on our hands. Eventually we get around to talking about Incantation and their logo of questionable substance, Autopsy and their hidden-baby cover art, Cryptopsy and their penchant for taking the Nestea plunge, Vomitory and their namesake's theatrical roots, and how Bloodbath are the Travelling Wilburys of death metal! All of this, plus Devin scares some construction workers, Fraz sings some Miley, and we get down to the bottom of a few fathomless mysteries. It's a mixed bag of death in an episode heavy enough to scare ghosts! BRUTAL.

13 Satan's Mail Sack

EAfter a brief and brutal hiatus, the lads are back and answering mail from our *fans! Devin and Fraz take to email and Twitter to answer your (church-)burning questions, and give you a death-whispering glimpse into what's to come on the next round of gore-obsessed episodes! And Devin gets a few cool new nicknames along the way. It's time to peer into the most Satanic sack of all!

12 BLACK SABBATH Part 2

EIt's the second part of our EPIC Black Sabbath episode, and it's a doozy! Devin drops some major car knowledge (Triumph Spitfires, Disco Cars, Ozzy-Mobiles, et al) AND describes his latest run-in with a post-apocalyptic desert space cowboy! Then Fraz sneezes out brain! Eventually, we get around to talking about: Bill Ward's wife's sweet red tights on the cover of Sabotage (1975); how 'It's Alright' from Technical Ecstasy (1976) should have been called 'Invasion of the Flower People'; the fact that Heaven and Hell (1980) would have been EVEN better with a guest appearance from Tom Sizemore; Born Again (1983)'s definitely-not-shocking cover; and how the band that put out 13 (2013) should have been called Sabbath Against The Machine. Plus, 1992's Dehumanizer is hidden gem you should consider thinking about listening to eventually. And further discussion on becoming a professional Ozzy-wrangler, as well as on our potential spin-off show, 'Dentures and Hell'. It's part two of our first-e...

11 BLACK SABBATH Part 1

EThere are 666 reasons why this is a milestone Devin and Hell episode. Here are just a few: It's our first two-parter, because we're finally talking Sabbath! Specifically, their first five untouchable albums (Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath)! Devin gets rid of his weird old curtain! Fraz does is Sega impression! The lads witness a real-life car accident during the show! And Devin tries to keep the episode on the rails while Fraz polishes off a peanut butter cookie! Plus; we use an unreasonable amount of movie analogies, discuss Tony Iommi's role as metal's 'Riff Santa', unpack Devin's dislike of cymbals, make fun of Ozzy Osbourne being scared in a castle, and Fraz likes the song 'Changes' so much, it will likely make you uncomfortable! Finally, a podcast you can grow a beard to! It's Black Sabbath! Part 1!

10 New School Metal with HUNKS

EHoly Moly! What an extra-special treat this week, as Devin and Fraz are joined by Winnipeg sketch troupe, HUNKS!!! This episode was recorded with Fraz and HUNKS in a swank hotel room in Edmonton, while Devin chimed in from Vancouver via the internet! New School Death meets new school technology! Bitchin'! On this week's show: Tim Gray's molecules are reassembled by Disma's 'Towards The Megalith'; Dana Smith describes Rings Of Saturn's 'Lugal Ki En' as phone-droppingly awful; Matt Nightingale thinks Fallujah's 'Dreamless' is very good; Rory Fallis recommends Pissgrave's 'Suicide Euphoria' as a lovely soundtrack for a day trip to the Field of Scattered Bones; and Quinn Greene gets totally stoked on Gruesome's 'Savage Land' and its awesome tribute to Death! All of this, plus: Is Seinfeld a conduit for Satan? Would Cookie Monster tripping balls make for good metal vocals? And documented proof that Opeth's Mikael Akerfeldt is the funniest man in metal. Cooooool times!!!
