Just kidding, there’s no philosophy on this episode, only brutal, blackened, and abrasive new music to enjoy with the family. Those bringing the torture this time around come from the US, UK, Canada, Norway, Turkey, Germany, Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, France, Poland, and Portugal.

I’m pretty sure I’m in the minority of metalheads in that I don’t like moshing. Sweaty shirtless men, pent-up testosterone, unresolved daddy issues; it’s just not for me.

I think ‘beautifully ugly’ sums up heavy metal fairly well; it’s harsh, abrasiveness, often dissonant, but at the same time it can convey the same depth of thought and emotion as any ‘beautifully beautiful’ art. At least, that is, if you have an ear for it; for most people it’s just a wall of buzz saws and puking sounds. Well, here’s to the recorded art of power tools and violent regurgitation.

Like the episode title says, this is a pretty damn heavy one. Granted, they always are but this week’s slab of heavy just feels…heavier. Lots of brutality is on display thanks to an abundance of solid releases lately, especially in the past month.

I mentioned to a friend recently that I’ve been doing this podcast for a little over two years now and their response was simply: “Why?”

Here’s episode 82 of Another Metal Podcast, discussion-free, commercial-free, and sh!$ty music-free (probably debatable, but this is my podcast after all).

Here’s a new episode, new music, and hopefully some new listeners as I slowly inch may way to the first hundred episodes. And so far I’ve only messed up a few times, so I’ll keep crossing my fingers for luck.

There’s a lot of attention right now being given to old-guard hanging it up and announcing farewell tours, which is understandable, but I think it’s also a symptom of some of the things holding metal back as an industry. Support the underground, because that’s what metal is nowadays.

Yeah, I’m two week’s late with this, but better late than never, right? Here’s some of my random picks from last month that stuck out to me; remember, this isn’t a ‘top picks’ for the month or anything, just some releases that might have flown under some of your radars.

I realize a while ago that I essentially do this podcast so other people can be lazy. I go through mountains of sonic turds to find choice new music from around the globe, all so listeners can skip the digging and enjoy the good without (most of) the bad. I’m okay with that though; if I’m anything it’s a humble servant in the metal community.

Every once in a while I end up with an episode that is almost completely non-stop brutal from front to back without even meaning to. Usually I have a set or two in the playlist of ‘breathing room’, ie. some lighter stoner rock and/or prog. This is not one of those times. Have fun.

I’m back from my short holiday respite and hope everyone had a brutally joyous New Year. Despite many a tired and crusty metal blogger claiming 2017 was a boring year for heavy music I personally think it was a solid year, it just didn’t have strong trends in any single genre, and besides, if it sucked how did I find so much great stuff to play for the entire year on this here podcast?
