146 – Title Doesn’t Matter

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast!

Title doesn’t matter because blogs don’t matter! Apparently. Other than that, we have the obligatory Threatin conversation, then discuss some new #content like Archspire, Born of Osiris, Sarah Longfield, Aenimus, Postwax, Slipknot and Soen. Then we do cool people on Cam, Call of Cthulhu (the game), Homecoming, Total Warhammer 2 Vampire Coast, and Peter Watts’s The Freeze-Frame Revolution. Enjoy!

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast!

A bunch of industry news this week! Spotify uniting with Distrokid, revenue shares of services, and ranting about monopolies versus fragmentation. Then some bummer news – Oli from All That Remains passed away, the Ghost members lost their lawsuit, and The Faceless are embarking on a 10th anniversary tour for Planetary Duality. Then some new music! Babymetal, Soilwork, Fractal Cypher, and Beyond Creation. Then cool people time! I gush about The Return of the Obra Dinn, and Eden gushes about Maniac. Enjoy!

142 – We Live In A Society

Slow news week, so we go on a lot of tangents. There’s still some new music out there though. Green Day side project The Mermaids, Arsis, Thomas Giles, Psycroptic, The Ocean, and The Dali Thundering Concept/The Algorithm. Then we do some cool people time with Venom and Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. Enjoy!

141 – Dabwound

I’m extremely proud of this episode title, honestly. Anyway, this week we’re discussing a bunch of stuff. Machine Head falling apart, Sigh collaborating with an unsavory character, Spotify wanting your DNA, Siriusm XM wanting Pandora (and Eden wanting Sirius XM’s CEO, apparently), new stuff by Unearth, Promethean, Darkaeon, Abstract Void, “Germany’s Latest Black Metal Rapper” Grafi (thanks Axl), and the 10th anniversary of what is objectively the greatest album of all time, Trivium’s Shogun. Then, cool people time with Cultist Simulator, Maniac, and Mandy (both of those previous titles would apply to Mandy as well, by the way). Enjoy!

139 – Dr. Phil And The Hyper-Real

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast!

This week we have a bunch of weird shit. Dr. Phil performing with Good Charlotte, Betraying the Martyrs covering Avenged Sevenfold, and then some normal news. Like new music from Black Queen, Psycroptic, Cryptopsy, Irreversible Mechanism and Arsis. Also, a feel-good story about The Ghost Inside. Then we do a cool people section on Ozark, Marvel’s Spider-Man (PS4) and Destiny 2. Enjoy!
