Much Ado About Moshing


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. Besides, the show is on the stage (assuming the particular band puts in the effort as far as energy and/or production), and it’s rather hard to take it in while being shoved around by smelly man-children who may or may not have been hugged often enough in their early lives. But goddammit if we all don’t love the same loud obnoxious music, and I think we can all drink/toke/high-five to that.

This episode’s bands hail from the lands of the US, Denmark, Germany, Finland, Belgium, Switzerland, UK, France, Sweden, and Canada. If you dig what you hear, remember you can help out a lot by rating, reviewing, and recommending the show on iTunes or whichever podcast platform you use; it gets more ears hearing these awesome bands. As always, Stay Heavy!
