BONUS EPISODE: An Interview With Justin Curtsinger (Zud, Gift of Tongues, Grime Studios)

11/4/2017

A long over due interview Max & Zach did with Justin from perenial favorites of the podcast Zud back in Sepetember, just before seeing them live, and the same night we interviewed Mary. This was our first interview, recording was bungled a bit, and we were in a parking lot, so forgive the less than stellar audio. For some great quality audio, head over to Zud’s bandcamp and buy their new album: https://zud666.bandcamp.com/

XVI - Magic(k) Metal; or, With Apologies to Ashencult

What happens when 4 sleepy dudes attempt to talk about esoteric occult knowledge and heavy metal? the episode length gets out of control. From Thelema to Heathenry, Celtic pagan revivalists to cosmic luciferians. We talk about magick and the men who love it while our own coherance slowly drifts away. Listen as a semingly dignified and respectful discussion of occult knowledge devolves into recollections of Spongebob in-jokes from 6 years ago. Oh yeah we had a guest host. Albums...

Tonight, on a very special Are You Morbid? we welcome our friends from Night (Bobby & Matt) over for a a discussion of Author H.P. Lovecraft.

XII - Thrash In a Dangerous Time

9/7/2017
More
A discussion of Thrash in the nineties. The end of the Golden Age and what lie beyond. We reconnect with our favorite bands at the start of the decade, and celebrate those brave (mostly European) firekeepers that dared to carry on the spirit of thrash through a desolate waste land of Nu, Groove, and Nirvana imitations that filled the post-1994 world. Your favorite bands last hurrahs, experiments that worked, and some undiscovered gems. Albums Discussed: Witchburner - Witchburner The...

*DISCLAIMER* If this is your first episode, please note, we generally try to be a little more impartial and educational, but we’re also bitter angry people and occasionally there’s some spillage. So yeah, lot’s of strong opinions and rage here. Start with an earlier episode if this doesn’t appeal, and know we probably won’t be doing this again In what may have been our worst episode idea yet, we decided to examine 12 albums by bands we hate, or at least thought we would hate. We thought...
