The winter of 2013-2014 has been absolutely brutal in the United States and outlying territories. Worse than that, if feels like it's never going to end! March is here and there are still places that have plenty of snow on the ground. It's enough to make even the most cheerful of Decibel Geeks feel depressed and cry out "Winter Sucks!"


This week we're joined by guest host Mitch Lafon for a discussion of some of our favorite Winter-themed songs (ie. songs with words like "cold", "ice", "frozen" in the title). In this hour-long discussion, Aaron, Chris and Mitch discuss and spin tracks by Cinderella, Aerosmith, Rainbow, London, LA Guns, Metallica and much more to help remedy your cold weather blues. Mitch also shares his reasoning for recently leaving the popular Three Sides of the Coin podcast and lets us in on his plans for the future.

After two weeks of discussing a British Invasion, we decided this week to discuss another kind of British Invasion and Chris and Aaron are joined by Tim Henderson from for an in-depth discussion of the entire catalog of heavy metal legends Judas Priest.


In this long-form discussion, Aaron, Chris and Tim discuss the recorded output of the iconic Judas Priest catalog; starting with 1974's Rocka Rolla and chronicling each album through 2008's Nostradamus and their hopes for the upcoming album currently being created.


There's a lot of twists and turns in this conversation with each host bringing a different perspective due to differing levels of Priest fandom. We hope die-hard Priest fans enjoy this trip down memory land and we also hope this coversation helps turn on listeners not as familiar with Judas Priest's catalog and hisotry to pick up and discover one of metal's most iconic bands. Enjoy!
