The Hammer Of Retribution Ogg-Cast XXXVI:
Original release date: 15th April 2013
Total length: 3:18:53 in 3 parts
Last February this show celebrated the fine art of stuffing seasoned minced meat into a small intestine and grilling it until the fat squirts out. Now, 14 months later, the successor to that show celebrates curdling milk from a variety of livestock species, none of which are in any way related to us, and allowing the solids to ferment for several months. Both are, when viewed objectively, bonkers ideas – but have taken hold. And as more varieties of cheese exist than is healthy to mention, finding bands from the same vicinity to represent a handful of them shouldn’t be a problem.
And so it has proved. There’s more cheese in this show than a Swiss fondue, and though most of it deals with the best of British – because we’re brilliant at it – I’ve allowed those from foreign shores to have their time in the sun – or, should I say, out of the fridge and onto the cheeseboard – as well. Plus, it shouldn’t be even remotely necessary to mention which Ogg-Cast Of The Past has been revisited.
This show even features a variety of guest stars – John Cleese, Michael Palin, Peter Sallis, Steve Coogan, David Schneider, Jeremy Clarkson and James May have all made an unexpected appearance. Not that the comedy is limited to these fine performers, mind…
As with the previous Minecraft Madness show, this one should prove that it’s not all four hours of folk-viking-pagan-Odin-is-great-fuck-the-Whitechrist metal. The tracklist evolves as I see fit; this time, there’s a fair bit more from the stoner-doom side of things, as well as some bits of thrash and trad metal to balance it out.
And I hope you all appreciate how much I spent on cheese just to get that promo shot!
