119 – Don’t Blame Noyan Please

Noyan is away, so Eden hosts fellow blog editor, Nick Cusworth! This gives the two opportunity to talk about stuff that usually doesn’t come up on the cast which they use to shine a light on Jim Grey from Caligula’s Horse releasing a video for the A Capela segment on their latest album, Plini releasing a new track, and a deep dive on the changes undergoing the post rock scene, recommended bands that make post rock or metal and the close knit networks that make these scenes happen! Along the way, they mention bands like Man Mountain, This Patch of Sky, Town Portal, VASA, Rumour Cubes, The Physics House Band, Alpha Male Tea Party, Mountain, Below a Silent Sky, Flora, Soldat Hans and more!

Then, it’s time for the bad news. They start off with surprising opinions revolving around gun control, first from Run the Jewels’ Killer Mike and then from Taylor Swift. They then move on to the click-bait article published on The Washington Post which claims that physical sales exceeded digital ones in 2017. While that’s technically true, the two analyze why that happened and get pretty personal on vinyl and CDs! Lastly, there’s a trio of terrible politics from the metal community. The first is the ridicule in the wake of The Faceless breaking up again, and what that says about the community’s terrible perspectives on addiction. Then, there’s another statement from Decapitated who totally by accident (allegedly) misinterpret and represent the facts of their trial again. Finally, there’s the awful news of Inquisition’s Dagon involvement with child pornography and, surprise, the community’s desire to protect him.

Cool people time includes The Witcher 3, CW’s Black Lightning and Ninefox Gambit!

But while some of our Editors and Contributors sit down gleefully each week to dive into this newly stocked treasure…

Post Rock Post – Flora

There’s a specific genre within our beloved Post Rock that leans heavily on the progressive rock influences of yesteryear. It’s marked by an emphasis on acoustic guitars and punchy drums rather than the delay laden stylings of most post rock bands. To be honest, its inclusion in the genre of…
