AMP - A Heavy Metal Podcast


If It Ain’t Got That Scream It Don’t Mean A Thing


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. Back in the eighties when the genre was a completely different business, the big-label architecture was designed for everything to rest on a few huge pillars (‘tallica, Megadeth, Ozzy, etc.). But nowadays heavy music is much more diffuse stylistically and DIY business-wise, so it hurts the industry to rely on the fading big names rather than the underground. That’s one of the main reasons I produce a heavy metal podcast that focuses exclusively on non major label bands, many of them purely independent; it’s where the future is and these are the groups that need attention and opportunity, not bands that had their spotlight thirty years ago and already contributed their relevancy. Support the underground, because that’s what metal is nowadays.

Bands on this week’s episode hail from France, Canada, Israel, Sweden, US, Croatia, Norway, Singapore, Austria, Finland, Greece, Netherlands, Italy, and Germany.
