123 – Oh, The Horror

4/23/2018
More
Me and my regular co-host Cody get together this week to discuss a bunch of things. Periphery leaving Sumerian Records, new material from Deafheaven, Hoth, Bleeding Through, Wolvhammer and Homewrecker. Then we quickly let go of that boring "metal" stuff and start talking about horror movies. Some of our favorites, some interesting modern classics, some not so great ones, and the whole gamut. We just love horror. Finally, a few other cool things like Westworld and God of War. Enjoy! The post...

122 – Cursed Podcast

4/17/2018
More
So due to technical difficulties, my voice on this episode is pretty messed up. I tried to recover it the best I could, and Anthony helped, but it is what it is. Well, at least Eden is audible this time, and he's around! We discuss the new Nekrogoblikon album, the Behemoth live album, and the new Ghost single. Finally, the Metalsucks article discussing the difference between bands who make stupid jokes and those who believe in violent ideologies. Then, we do the deep segment on Metallica....

121 – Weekly “Metal Is Trash” Update

4/9/2018
More
This week me and my regular co-host Cody are tired of all the garbage in metal. Marduk, Cirith Ungol, Meshuggah, Decapitated, just throw it all in the trash fire. Then, more positivity. Cody is really excited about Psycho Las Vegas, which leads to him checking out Wolves In The Throne Room. There's a new Ihsahn song, and I got into Krosis, and tried to get into the new Panopticon album. Then we talk about Death, Gruesome and Cist. Finally, we go over this video comparing Mike Portnoy and...

120 – Converge Are An Up And Coming Band

4/2/2018
More
Eden is away doing [thing] this week, so we have Cody instead. Of course, I proceed to troll Cody by making the podcast awkward. But hey, we discuss stuff too! We spend a good amount of time discussing Ihsahn's disappointing take on the recent happenings in metal and his complicity (including Emperor drummer Faust's actions). Then how lukewarm we are about the new Dimmu Borgir song. Then the new Alkaloid song, which we both love. Then I try to convince Cody to get into Augury (he messaged...

119 – Don’t Blame Noyan Please

3/26/2018
More
Noyan is away, so Eden hosts fellow blog editor, Nick Cusworth! This gives the two opportunity to talk about stuff that usually doesn't come up on the cast which they use to shine a light on Jim Grey from Caligula's Horse releasing a video for the A Capela segment on their latest album, Plini releasing a new track, and a deep dive on the changes undergoing the post rock scene, recommended bands that make post rock or metal and the close knit networks that make these scenes happen! Along...

118 – Blame Eden Somehow

3/19/2018
More
The last time I didn't put links to news stories in the description was over a year ago, let's see if people will still leave passionate comments asking for the links back again. No, this is totally not an attempt to bait people into increasing our facebook engagement. Anyway, this week we talk about Spotify's legal woes as outlined by The Verge, their upcoming IPO, and their launch in Israel, which Eden is not very happy with. Also Sigur Ros's tax-evasion-but-not-actually story. Then when...

117 – Taake On Me

3/5/2018
More
This week Eden's gone so I got Simon instead. We talk extensively about his editorial regarding the Taake incident, trangressions and more. We talk about how black metal's problematic web of influences is way too wide, and how frustrating that is. Then we cleanse our palates with some new music by Alkaloid, Rivers of Nihil (my review here) and Augury. Finally, we talk about the new Between the Buried and Me album (Jimmy's review here). Then we do cool people time. Simon talks about the new...

116 – Rivers of Annihilation

2/26/2018
More
This week on Heavy Pod Is Heavy Castm we bring even more extra salt. The news is ripe for it! Well, we also talk about new music and stuff. More of Matt (Trivium) streaming, Trivium's new live video, and Paolo beefing with Phil Labonte of All That Remains. Then, Chris Barnes of Six Feet Under peddling right wing conspiracy theories. Within the Ruins changing vocalists. But also new music from Dimmu Borgir, Ihsahn, Barren Earth, Rivers of Nihil (love the album!), and Sectioned. Afterwards,...

115 – Millennials Are Ruining Guitar Music

2/19/2018
More
This week we bring some extra salt. We talk about Gibson guitars being on the verge of bankruptcy, peoples' musical tastes getting calcified in their teen years, me being nominated for an innovative guitarist contest (and other amazing musicians, so go vote and check them out!), and discussing new or upcoming material from Ihsahn, Between the Buried and Me, and Huggsja. Then we shine a light on Crescent and Aliases. In cool people time we discuss Black Panther (spoiler warning)....

114 – Deep Down, Every Genre Is Melodeath

2/12/2018
More
I'm sick this week, so excuse the voice and rambling. But hey, rambling makes for a fun podcast! Specifically, we ramble about promos that get sent out way too early, bands that lose their spark over time, and those weren't even really topics we intended to discuss! But we also talk about new music, like Tesseract, Augury, Augury, Barren Earth, Howling Sycamore, and Glorior Belli. We also speculate about The Safety Fire and Psyopus making comebacks. Finally, Apple Music surpassing Spotify...

113 – Clever And Funny Episode Title

2/5/2018
More
Unfortunately I don't have a fun or a dab-inducing dank reference for the episode title this time. Just a regular old episode. We discuss new music. Mike Shinoda's EP, Justin Timberlake's album, Cyclamen's new album, Misery Index's single, Judas Priest's new song, yndi halda's EP, and August Burns Red's Messengers Remixed. We also talk about Matt Heavy from Trivium streaming his practice and gaming sessions, and how Best Buy and Target are trying to get rid of CDs. Devin Townsend is...

112 – Digging Deep For That Rare Form

1/29/2018
More
This week we do the promised Deep Segment on After the Burial! They're one of my favorite bands and I have a lot to say about them, so it takes quite a while. We dig into their career and talk about it all. We barely have time for news, but we do discuss a few items. Namely Avenged Sevenfold protesting the Grammys, Converge politely trolling a fan who disrupts their show, and Pestilence kinda accidentally releasing their album, maybe? Also cool people stuff - Eden finishes All the Birds in...

110 – I Go Away For One Week, You Won’t Believe What Happens

1/8/2018
More
The first episode of 2018 has to be a shitshow right? Noyan is away moving coasts (like, literally moving several coasts, not changing apartments), so we have Simon instead. Eden’s power cuts out several times during recording, both of them have terrible opinions and hilarity ensues. They did get around to talking about stuff like new music from Justin Timberlake, Mammoth Grinder, Judas Priest, Vessel of Iniquity and Nightmarer. They then speak about Soundcloud kinda maybe going to 64kbps...

End of the year, so there's not a lot of news! Shokran covering Linkin Park, Arkona teasing a new album, a new Portal track, Gene Simmons getting banned from Fox News. Decibel's weird top 40 of the year. Then we discuss why I didn't enjoy the new Xanthochroid releases and what merit they may have regardless. We introduce a new segment: "Game Changer", then we discuss Between the Buried and Me's Colors and how it, well, changed the game. Finally Eden plugs his love letter to Iron Maiden's...
