11/13/2017
More
Yay normal episode! This week we have a bunch of weird/grim news to talk about. Jay-Z suing journalists, Taylor Swift suing journalists, Marilyn Manson pointing a fake gun at an audience after a shooting, Jesse of Brand New being accused of sexual assault. Then some new music, like Impureza and Bloodshot Dawn. Then we talk about what we've been listening to lately, and have an extended discussion about Eden's recent editorial on the aesthetics of abrasive vocals in metal. Then cool people...

102 – I’m Just A Meme

10/30/2017
More
We don't have Eden this week, so Kellan and I discuss Every Time I Die's Jordan Buckley getting sued for stage diving into a fan, causing her to have a concussion and a fractured neck. As a result, he's being sued, and of course the metal community reacts very poorly to this. We then discuss the Linkin Park show held in memory of Chester, featuring members of bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, System of a Down, Blink 182, Bring Me The Horizon and more. Finally, we discuss the new...

101 – Why Would Anyone Listen to Prog-Power?

10/16/2017
More
This week we're doing something different as well. Instead of covering the news (there wasn't a lot) we're just going to do a "starter kit" on progressive power metal (despite my objections)! Basically, why anyone would want to listen to the genre (no idea) and if so, what bands should they start with (none of them)? Eden and I both discuss some classics. Names mentioned include Blind Guardian, Angra, Therion, Pagan's Mind, Kamelot, Teramaze and Fractal Cypher. Then, we do an in-depth...

Our 100th episode! We get to do something special this week. Eden and I discuss our top 5 graphic novels (manga), movies, books, video games and honorable mentions. It was fun to do, so I hope you enjoyed it! Spoilers, but I'll put our lists in the show notes in case you want to check them out later. Enjoy!

99 – Sacred Son ft. Dane Cross

10/2/2017
More
So, we mentioned the Sacred Son artwork controversy before. The chill artwork for the very real black metal album drew some ire, so we got the man behind the curtain to join us and tell it all. And it was a good time! We talk about the artwork (of course), but also the project itself, Dane's views on the black metal scene and more. Eden and I then discuss new material from Augury, First Fragment, Cavalera Conspiracy (check out my retrospective), Leander Kills and The Kindred. We also...

98 – That 2008 Shit

9/25/2017
More
A bunch of news and content! I'm just going to list it. Kiss's Gene Simmons talking about his $2000 box set, Super Deluxe roasting Taylor Swift via Limp Bizkit, Machines of Man, Machine Head, Linkin Park's tribute show to Chester (and our picks for vocalist), Sutrah, the Sacred Son artwork controversy, and the new Winds of Plague single. Also how ridiculous this Friday's releases have been. Then we do a deep segment on producer Jens Bogren, including his work on Ihsahn, Leprous,...

97 – DMCA Us Right Now

9/18/2017

Finally the crew is back on track! This week we talk about... Stuff. The charges brought against Decapitated, Spotify removing Infant Annihilator songs, Womanowar getting copyright stricken, Phil Anselmo dragging his own racism back into the highlight, Samael's... incredibly tone deaf video, then new music or material from: Godspeed! You Black Emperor, August Burns Red, Coma Cluster Void, Good Tiger, Veil of Maya, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Gigan, Vulture Industries, and Shokran. Then,...

96 – Ft. Axl Rosenberg And Chris Kovatin

9/11/2017
More
Metalsucks's Axl Rosenberg and Chris Kovatin (also of Revolver) have joined us this week to talk about their upcoming book that chronicles the history of metal, Hellraisers: A Visual History of Heavy Metal Mayhem! Of course, I steer the train hard off the rails, so we have a great time talking about a bunch of topics, including but not limited to: the book itself, Phil Labonte, Decapitated getting arrested, racism in metal, the business of running a metal blog, and much more! This was a...

95 – Taylor Swift

9/5/2017
More
We're back! Sorry. Not much going on, anyway. First, Matt Harvey of Exhumed's dumb statement about Nazis and Toilet ov Hell's great response. Oli from Archspire wanting to fight Tim Lambesis of As I Lay Dying. Indie labels creating their own streaming services. The unfortunate news that Todd Honeycutt, the bassist for Enfold Darkness has committed suicide. Then, new stuff from Mastodon, Shokran, Soften the Glare (featuring Ryan Martinie from Mudvayne), Taylor Swift, Unleash the Archers,...

This week I was away, so Eden enlisted Simon as a Noyan replacement! Also, since I was away I have...

93 – From The Horse’s Mouth

8/14/2017
More
This week we cover a usual assortment of topics. Jeff Loomis not being allowed to write for Arch Enemy, Thom Yorke and Roger Waters going at it about Israel, Soundcloud being on the verge of death, kind of, the new Enslaved single, and this interesting op-ed from WSJ about how negative music reviews have disappeared. We also revisit the latest Shokran album, then talk about small things in songs that immediately sell us on them. Then some cool people time, with Hannu Rajaniemi's The...

92 – Trent-setter

8/7/2017
More
Wow, both Eden and I are together again! And it's a long episode! It's like back in the old days. This week we have some news, some new music, some old music, and some other random stuff. Spawn of Possession call it quits, Nolly leaves Periphery, Hip-hop/R&B has surpassed rock, Trent Reznor puts his foot in his mouth. Then we have stuff from Trivium, Dyscarnate, First Fragment, Primus, Caligula's Horse, Adimiron, Ne Obliviscaris. We talk about Fractal Cypher, and Roadrunner United and...

91 – White Supremacist Math-Rock

7/31/2017
More
This week, Eden is gone! I swear this isn't some Fast and Furious 8 situation where Eden and I hate each other and don't appear on screen at the same time (see Vin Diesel and The Rock), but just real life getting in the way. But Tidal is still alive, so we must go on. This week we have Simon Handmaker, fellow Heavy Blog editor and meme master. We discuss some news/new music, like The Faceless facing troubles, Spotify needing to change their business model, and new music from: Myrkur,...

90 – Yada Yada Yada Hawaii

7/25/2017
More
Noyan is gone! He's probably finally collapsed into his natural, more salty form. In his stead, we have Austin Isaac Peters of Outrun the Sunlight, a fantastic, Chicago based post metal band. Speaking with Eden, Austin opens up about topics like music and mental health (following a discussion on the tragic death of Chester Bennington, of Linkin Park fame), the Chicago music scene, the amazing Audiotree (an amazing studio-space and much more which you should definitely check out a link to...

89 – Wall Chicken

7/17/2017
More
You thought last week was salty? Try this week. Of course, we discuss the new Stray From The Path song and the reaction to it. Then Matt Skiba of Blink 182 and his witchcraft he inflicted upon Fyre Festival. Then Soundcloud's imminent failure, and Chance the Rapper's attempt at stalling that. Then Pandora's closing up shop in AU and NZ. Then the traffic accident that lead to the death of Adrenaline Mob bassist David Zablidowsky. Wintersun's Forest Seasons shenanigans never end. Fallujah...

88 – Streaming & Salt

7/10/2017
More
Those of you who like controversial topics, we've got them this week! Jay-Z gaming the RIAA with Sprint to make his latest album go platinum, Spotify creating "fake music" to game their own algorithms for profit (read this article!), Soundcloud laying off 40% of their staff, and the all-female music festival in Sweden. These take up a good bit of our time. We also discuss metal though! The new Archspire song (we manage to make this controversial too), new music from Stargazer,...

87 – Honorary French

7/3/2017

Eden is away colonializing, so we have fellow writer and regular substitute-Eden Ahmed back on this week! We have some really interesting discussions. We discuss how Jay-Z's new album has a poor business model with its Tidal exclusivity. Funny thing is, in the day between the recording and release of this podcast, he managed to put his foot in his mouth and decided to release the album for free for non-Tidal subscribers! The salt during the episode is still interesting. We then discuss a...

Fun times! This week we discuss a bunch of new music. Leprous, Tesseract, Archspire, The Haunted, Aborted, Cloakroom, and Fox Territory. Then we have some live footage from Zeal & Ardor, Spotify suffering losses, and Rolling Stone's top 100 metal albums. Then we discuss the Transformers movies, and what makes a good villain. Enjoy!

85 – Danish Bullshit

6/19/2017

I'm back, and so is Eden, so we have a normal episode for once! And it's a glorious trainwreck. We talk about new music, including Myrkur, The Arusha Accord, Akercocke, Leprous, Igorrr, Fractal Universe, ZETA, The Contortionist, The Faceless, and Queens of the Stone Age. Also, Gene Simmons of KISS trying to trademark the metal horns. We have an extended discussion on bands appropriating spiritualism and eastern philosophy and then do the first part of a deep segment on Devin Townsend....
