Mountain of Doom (Amon Amarth)

Focus On Extreme MetalWhile saving Dario's liver from excessive drinking and your ears from vulgar display of unfunny stories, Mandy, the core of the Extreme Pear rejoins his sidekick Dario and the Extreme Metal Podcast churns out another brutal episode.
After getting stood up twice, the third date with Amon Amarth results in a cool albeit brief interview with Johan Söderberg, the guitar player. Johan talks to us about the new album, his influences and much more and the Extreme Pair summarizes "Surtur Rising" and plays a couple of premiere Amon Amarth tracks from the upcoming release.
We also review a black metal documentary "Until the Light Takes Us", dig into our own closets in search of the most unextreme skeletons. We find Stryper, but nobody claims that one. Another hot episode of Focus on Extreme Metal turns brutal when we attempt to launch a dual-channel synchronized fartburp. We also play some music as picked by our listeners, deliver the metal news with new releases and tour report followed by birthdays and we end the epic return to offbeat form with a third installment of the now classic Extreme Pair outtakes. Enjoy, be sure to call us and leave a voice mail at 205 383 3666 and write to us at
