Welcome back to Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! As a brief PSA before the agenda, you should check out Native Construct’s stolen gear Gofundme. This week we talk about new music from Vipassi, Obscura, Dark Matter Secret, The Contortionist, Dream Theater and Tre Watson. We then move onto the fallacy of AOTY lists (check our editorial on it here), the obsession with “maturity” in metal, and the influence of fantasy literature in metal.
Episode 7 – Mature Fantasies:
Intro/Outro – Aftermath/Closure, Just as Planned by NYN
Simon’s take on the cultural capital of Deafheaven (we don’t really talk about this directly, but it’s relevant to our points)
