I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s summary of the past twenty episodes, it was fun to pick out some of my favorite tracks so far. But it’s time to get to the new stuff this week, so here’s some doom, death, thrash, and black metal from the US, UK, Finland, Greece, Brazil, Norway, and Australia.
If you’ve caught the last couple episodes of this site’s weekly podcast, you’ve likely heard the savage and heavy-hitting sounds of Ontario’s The Offering. The guys from Niagara Falls have something great going for them and I was stoked to play a few tracks of theirs; the band just released their debut album, Codex Mystirium and they spared a few moments for an interview.
Episode 20 is a little different; instead of the usual one hour of new metal it’s a two and a half hour special consisting of some of my favorite tracks from the last twenty episodes (technically nineteen, but I like round numbers). I spread the gamut pretty far, so there should be something in this one for everyone, whether it be stoner, death, prog, or anything in between.
Episode 19 of our heavy metal show is two parts death metal (both new and old-schools), one part doom, and a big part black metal for the last segment. Countries represented include Sweden, UK, US, Canada, Costa Rica, Germany, Portugal, Ireland, and France.
This week’s episode of our heavy metal podcast is a grimy, sludgy, primal mess of an hour-long music show. It’s all doom, death, and black metal this time and it sounds great so crank up the volume and listen to some brand-new metal from around the world.
Party-hardy German thrashers Dust Bolt are back with another platter of old-school thrash. Luckily, these guys mean business enough to step outside the ‘rethrash’ boundaries here and there, making for a fun listen back to front.
Pardon me while I clear the smoke from this week’s edition of the heavy metal podcast; the show starts with a nearly half-hour block of great stoner/sludge/bluesy metal before exploring some varied death metal and finally a few grimy old-school metal tracks.
This one starts with thrash and death, gets a little blackened, and eventually finds where the stash was hidden. In following a bit of a trend, I’ve discovered that when I end the show with something a bit ‘off’ there’s a 9-in-10 chance it came from either Portland or Finland. Someone may want to look into that.
The heavy metal podcast your friends (and you) have never heard of continues with episode 13. This is perhaps one of the ‘harshest’ episodes since, now that I think of it, only two of the twelve tracks feature any clean vocals at all; but then again this is metal so just try not throwing up some devil horns to each and every song.
