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, we...

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

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

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

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...

86 – Avocado Toast And Dick

6/26/2017
More
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
More
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....

84 – Doug Moore Of Pyrrhon

6/12/2017
More
The title doesn't do our guest justice! Doug Moore is the vocalist of Pyrrhon, but he also writes the excellent Black Market column at Stereogum. Eden chats with Doug about those two things, and more. The creative process, writing for a metal site, and more. Enjoy!

Duration: 00:16:13


83 – Max Phelps Of Exist

6/5/2017
More
In case the title wasn't clue enough, this week we have Max Phelps of Exist, Defeated Sanity and Death to All (also ex-Cynic) as our guest! We discuss his creative process, touring with Gorguts, and of course, the upcoming Exist album So True, So Bound, which comes out this week! We also discuss new music from Origin, Bloodshot Dawn, Rings of Saturn, Vintersorg and more! We also discuss Fredrik Thordendal's hiatus(?) from Meshuggah and Per Nilsson of Scar Symmetry replacing him. Finally,...

Well, actually, the title is the opposite of the truth. Instead it’s Noyan-free and Scott-ful. AKA, I was away this...

81 – Don’t Google Trypophobia

5/22/2017
More
No, seriously, don't. Anyway, I'm sick, Eden is tired, but we hold it together, maybe even more so than usual! We discuss some news. We have a discussion about mental health and how sad music affects us because of Chris Cornell's passing. We discuss Textures breaking up, Morbid Angel refusing to play and David Vincent material, an awesome flamenco cover of Judas Priest's "Painkiller", then some new music. Pyrrhon, Dying Fetus, Arcadea, Decrepit Birth and Interloper. We also discuss some of...

80 – Stabbed Faceless By Silicon Valley

5/15/2017
More
This was a week of diversions. Eden is back in his land, and I've seen Metallica live and am super amazed by them. Also, new music by Exist, Origin, Steven Wilson, and Rings of Saturn. Then we talk about some happenings. The shitshow surrounding The Faceless missing their New Zealand tour, Chester of Linkin Park telling fans to stab themselves in the face, and the sexual assault allegations leveled against PWR BTTM and the implications of that. Then Eden recommends some music - Brutus,...

79 – Heavy Pod Is Not Crash

5/8/2017
More
Now that's a reference in the episode title that will appeal to a very niche audience. This week Eden's away, so I get fellow writer Colin to help me out, and we just talk about stuff that Eden would never talk about. Mainly Japanese stuff - the Japanese music industry, voice acting, video games, and anime. Yeah, we mostly talk about anime. We discuss some of our favorites, whether subbed or dubbed is better, and how translations should work. Some listeners actually asked for this, so...

5/1/2017
