Can I give it 10 stars?

Doc does some of the best interviews with amazing people! There's music he plays that turns you on to bands you may never have listened to before! I've became a huge fan of a couple of bands that have sponsored this show {Royalty Kult} He keeps it real while sharing life experiences, making this podcast one that hits home, makes you think, and is hands down one of the best music related podcasts I've ever heard! If you're reading this, you should go listen to what he has to say!! You won't regret it!!

Two Thumbs Up

Doc is the dude! He’s got jokes and good interviews along with interesting guests. I dig it!


Doc, when the hell are you going to get Jesse Leach or anyone from Killswitch on the podcast? Jesse would be the perfect guest on your show, you know it and I know it.

Awesome variety of guests

I love getting so many different perspectives and stories from all over the industry. Such a good podcast.


This podcast has some awesome stories! Selling tickets, traveling the states, meeting locals and playing those underground shows.... Its cool to hear about bts back in the days and how hard y’all work.

Thoughts below

Fan of the music not his politics

Thumbs Up

Real interesting insight with awesome guests! You da man Doc!

Doc Coyle show rules

love listening to this show while at work and now at home in the new era of the global fallout resistance renaissance, learn a whole lot of stuff from this show about people in kool bands that are in different bands crazy stories from bands from my teenage years and band drama that you wouldn’t hear anywhere else is sometimes kind of funny and stuff so defiantly check it out or the umbrella man will find you

One of my favorites.

Doc is a great interviewer and has good conversations. Very funny and has great guests. I listen to his content on long drives or at work and it makes the time fly by. Thanks for a great podcast.

You bad.

Love ya’, Doc. Thanks for the free entertainment.

Doc has made me better at arguing

The title is kinda goofy but it’s true. I started listening because I grew up on God Forbid and others like them. I kept listening because Doc’s level-headed thoughts about things he doesn’t agree with are really interesting. Now, I find myself using some of the same methods in my own life and being more empathetic. It truly is a great podcast.

Straight up

Doc is far beyond the average musician. Super hard working, focused, and personable. His insight is right on and this podcast is extremely informative to those interested in the struggles of the music industry.

Best metal podcast

Less BS more conversation. Unlike some of the others. Plus these are more personal.


these are great conversations super enjoyable

So great

Doc is a great interviewer. I really love this show.

Love this cast

I really enjoy hearing doc and all his guests going over the music scene I came up in. Awesome to hear all the behind the scenes stuff. 🤘🏻🤘🏻

Xmas morning.

Feels like Xmas morning every time doc drops a new eppie. Pumped. Thanks for the great podcast.

It’s like being in the van with Doc

Doc in 2020! He’s got my vote! His interviews are full of intelligent statements and he gets the most out of his guests. He is candid and unlike most of America he backs up his statements with facts...all in all a great listen! Keep up the great work Doc!

Essential listening for the metal music fan!

Doc is great. He asks great questions and the interviews are thought provoking.

Great content. Always look forward to new episodes.

I love how Doc Coyle invite guest stars on stage and just always has a good attitude and an open mind!

My Favorite Podcast!

Love this show! Doc knows everybody and he gets the best stuff out of everyone he has on the show. Thankful to have a show like this 🙏🏼

Doc Keepin It Real!

I love this show and hearing all these backstories. Really loved the OJ and Robb Flynn episodes. I also find these shows inspiring me to keep up with my music career and be successful. Keep it going!

Love it but would love to see some more diversity

Love the show. My only complaint is it mainly focuses on underground or major INDIE label employees when they do that type of ‘ex-man’ episodes. I would love to see a few people who were a little higher up than just the hardcore food chain! But I would also love to hear some more mid 90’s metalcore guests along with larger acts and artists that ended up being ‘ex-men’ Probably one of my fav podcasts regardless

Doc Coyle Rocks 🤘🏼

Not only is Doc Coyle a great guitarist, he’s totally hilarious and very intelligent. I love this podcast and look forward to every episode.

5 stars

Very original, great questions and interesting dialogues. My suggestion for a guest is Bryan Scott of The Union Underground, Cult to Follow and Into The Fire.


I am new to the whole podcast scene but, so far this is definitely my favorite. Really enjoying all the episodes. Thanks doc. Keep it going.

Bigger interviews

Doc is an excellent interviewer. The Anthony Martini episode was one of the best. Great podcast.

Nothing quite like it

Since Doc is a respected professional in the industry and has a working relationship with most of these musicians, he gets to touch topics and ask questions that other interviewers wouldn't think of or wouldn't have the same perspective as someone who had actually been in bands or lived life on the road. It doesn't just seem like a promo or advertisement from the band's label and makes me feel closer to bands in the metal scene. Doc is a deep thinker and will expand upon ideas or topics that are discussed in the show and those discussions are often gifts. As a fellow musician, this podcast really is for us. I sincerely hope he keeps this show going for years and gets to start interviewing bands and musicians in other scenes as well. He's that good.


I absolutely love this podcast.So many guests that have influenced my musical journey

Great stories

I used to see and hangout with Doc in Baltimore,DC and Northern Virginia (Springfield) he was always a smart well spoken guy who was always easy to get along with. So seeing as how a lot of his guest are past tour mates of his, it’s easy for him to get great conversations and stories with a lot of these guest who happen to be musicians from bands I used to listen to from band who have now broken up. Great podcast if you are into hearing the brutal truth about how much hard work the musicians have to put in on the road and to play a good show.

Great podcast from a solid dude.

Doc, love the podcast. I really appreciate your grasp on current events and ensuring that you bring that into your episodes. I was also really stoked to see that you gave money to Caleb Scofield’s family as I did. Dude, could you do something with one of the VOD guys? Thanks so much and all the best to you and Boecklin with Bad Wolves, love that Boecklin dropped a Cave In reference in the inaugural episode.

Great podcast

Excellent podcast very informative with question that aren’t the standard👍🏻

My favorite of all the metal podcasts

My favorite of all the metal podcasts! Doc is a great interviewer. He pulls out the personal and musical stories that you don’t hear anywhere else.

My new jam

I’m new podcast lover. Found a few go tos. Always wanted good one based on my line of work. Great topics, convo and flow. Docs one of the funniest dudes I’ve hung around. Check an episode out!!

Great podcast and doc coyle is the man!!

Great to hear the behind the scenes stuff on my fav bands in my teenage years. Subscribe and listen to every single podcast you won’t regret it and such a good time. Thanks doc and keep up the amazing work you’re doing🤘🏾

Another killer metal podcast

If you like Jasta, you’ll love Ex-Man. 🤘🏻


GOOOD LAWD!!!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 this podcast, yo I love how you break the industry down and expose the things that some people don’t think twice about. Lol my little one loves this podcast too, we listen before bed😴 and she loves The Cranberries and Bad Wolves after hearing your cover!!! Thank you soooo much Doc!!!!

Great Listen

I listen here and there, depending on the guest but I just listened to the Brian Fair episode most recently. That’s a great dude and I could’ve listened for 2 more hours. I also checked out the Ken Susi and Brandan Schieppati episodes. You’re podcast is awesome Doc! Keep it up!

Great interviews

I had the good fortune of meeting Doc when he was on tour with Meytal, so I was curious to hear what he'd have to say on a regular podcast. He didn't disappoint. As an example, take a listen to his recent interview with Eric German...great insight into the music industry.

great podcast!

I whole heartedly enjoy this podcast series. Lots of memories from a fan perspective during this era. This podcast gives another view on the life of the musicians that brought us heavy music.....even discovered a couple bands that I have ignored for years. The Pat Sheridan episode made me a fan of Fit For an Autopsy.

Top-notch Podcast

This is a great podcast. Doc is authentic, funny, and seems to have an appreciation for all types of music. He’s not afraid to ask his guests tough questions and engages in thought-provoking conversation. I’m always looking forward to new episodes, regardless of whether I’m familiar with his guest.

Doc knows what he’s talking about

As my best friend once said to me: “never trust someone in the music business who didn’t try to start a band first.” Doc has walked the walk as a real musician, a hard working go-getter, and a likable and personable guy, which makes him well suited to these conversations with great guests, most of whom he knows from real world experience on the road. Essential.

Easy listening interviews.

This podcast is great, Doc is great, any true metalhead needs to subscribe. Good stuff.

Entertaining and insightful

Very cool insight into the world of a working metal musician, great conversations on not only his career but the other bands and industry people who make it all happen.

Great interview! Great concept!

Great interview with Peter Wichers, And Peter Iwers. Makes me wish I had perused my talent more than I did. Hey Doc, remember that time I let you borrow my 5150 foot switch? Hahaha. Probably not, but that’s cool! Had a blast playing with you guys back then!

Highly Addictive

Doc is amazing! Not only can the dude play great guitar, write awesome music and riffs, but he hosts a really great show (podcast)! His format, the guests and his insight give a terrific and original spin to his show!


First podcast I took the time to listen to it and love it. As a fellow metal music lover, and New Jerisan. Doc you're killing it.

This podcast is a MUST

If you are a metal fan or interested in the workings of the music industry. It is a inside view from someone that was in a full time touring band during the early 2000's who had to make a shift away from being in a full time touring band. His guests share their experiences with all the behind the scenes that go with being in a band or working in the music industry. Also Doc is a great host and has great insights that he shares. Go hit that subscribe button!

Very cool

Lots of thought is put into each episode. Bravo!

Top notch

Enlightening about the Heavy Music Industry

Love this show, talking to all kinds of current and former members of all kinds of bands. Doc is a great host, and is very natural with the interviews. Also a great resource if you are interested in the heavier band lifestyle and what is dealt with in that world. Great to hear from former members of great bands and to see what they are up to, as well as hearing about new projects. Thanks Doc, the show is awesome! \m/

Great music podcast

Doc nails all the music related topics very well and with super knowledgeable guests because friends, doh. Usually tied to metal topics but if you're a fan of any kind of metal this is a no brainer if you wanna learn more from the great world of metal the great people behind it.

Great Podcast

Great the idea of interviewing ex-band members

Stay woke

Slept on God Forbid, slept on Doc Coyle's podcast. If you're a fan of JRE The E-Men is a great listen/recommendation to your podcast world

Amazing podcast

Stumbled upon this podcast on the second episode and have been listening to it regularly since. Super informative insight into the life of a touring musician along with some great stories. One of the best music based podcasts out there!

Great podcast

Sick podcast! The music industry is rough, and people need to know how rough it is! Support your favorite bands!

Being in on the inside

It's great hearing the side of the musicians story and looking back at the last and learning from. Growth is something we all can relate to and this podcast will give you the behind the scenes story. Great work Doc! Doc is the perfect man for this job with his strong knowledge in the music scene and business. Very entertaining and REAL. Can't wait for more to come.

Great trips down memory lanes

Not only do you get a lot of insight and perspective on how bands either break up or why people leave but it's great hearing the stories of making certain albums or going on tours we all attended in the past. Makes me miss my younger days where going to concerts was one of the top 1 or 2 priorities I had in life.


What a great podcast showcasing modern musicians which was lacking in this new talk-era. So glad Doc created this as his blogs are fantastic and he has transferred that great energy to this show.

Macho Warrior Randy Hogan

Great stuff for the MetalHead. Do an interview with ex Light This City members.

Proud of you Doc! I love you. Dallas

Stuff you always wanted to know...

It is very interesting to hear musicians that I know of and respect talk about the struggles of bigger bands. It really peals back the layers and allows me to see the musician and their most honest state; a human just trying to do what they love. Good work - keep it up!

Very insightful & fun

Doc's got a great way of connecting with his guests and delving into what you want to know about their past bands and what's going on with them now. Comedy sprinkled in keeps it fun and interesting. Can't wait for the next episode.

Great idea.

Very interesting and easy to listen too. I am exceited to see where the show goes from here.
