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...

This week we continue our album of the year deliberations by whittling the list of releases we cared about this year down to a lean 20. Next week, we'll finally decide on our list of ordered 10 and maybe look back on the year. Your homework is to listen to these albums and let us know what you feel. Enjoy!

106 – Colors Me Surprised

11/27/2017
More
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...

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...

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...

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,...

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 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...

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.
