June 24, 2008, 10 years ago
What happens when you team up the mouth of the metal world and the mouth of the desert? You get an internet television show to end all others. BW&BK; and metal know-it-all and smart ass Eric Braverman have teamed up to bring the world The Greatest Music Ever Created And How It Ruined Our Lives.
Raising the bar for web metal programming, The Greatest Music Ever Created And How It Ruined Our Lives will feature Braverman interviewing a variety of metal superstars and notable up and comers with his unique style and undeniable wit. The idea for the show, according to Braverman, came about because, "It's the greatest music ever created yet it does not exist on Jay Leno, Conan, Oprah or Bill O'Reilly, simply by listening to metal music, you are shunned and feared. Apply for a job in a AS I LAY DYING t-shirt and you're not getting it. No one on American Idol ever sings PRIEST or DRAGONFORCE songs, METALLICA doesn't do halftime shows at ballgames, yet." Eric continues, "Our show will help the world get to know these metal people and their metal way of looking at their world one power chord, one beer, one head bang ,one brave word and one bloody knuckle at a time. With huge laughs and gasps every episode we might just get MAIDEN in a parade or SLAYER playing your country's national anthem. If you think you know metal you ain't heard or seen nothin' like this."
He finishes up by declaring, "Thank God metal ruined my life or I might have ended up another U2, Dave Matthews or worse casualty. Never knowing the power of SABBATH, JOB FOR A COWBOY, THIN LIZZY, LAMB OF GOD or MACHINE HEAD." Eric
then got in touch with "Metal" Tim Henderson, the brains and muscle behind the planet's leading metal authority, BW&BK; Magazine/BraveWords.com. When Henderson heard the idea and gameplan behind The Greatest Music Ever Created And How It Ruined Our Lives he was instantly intrigued and onboard.

Set to run around 20 - 30 minutes in length, each episode of The Greatest Music Ever Created And How It Ruined Our Lives will strictly focus on Eric Braverman and the featured guest, rather than a minute or two of interview time spliced between music videos from the artists and will be updated monthly. The episodes are also shot on high definition camera equipment rather than going the "dude with a camcorder and a podcast" angle.
