Episode 21! This week there’s a bunch of new music and bizarre happenings to talk about. New music from Leander, Cyclamen, Shokran (kind of), Otep and Eximperitus (Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum). Happenings include Rotting Christ‘s temporary name change to be able to play in South Africa without offending religious sensibilities (Behemoth got off easy!), Iron Maiden‘s ridiculous vehicular issues and some confusing  “new” releases (Ghost Brigade and Vulture Industries) by Season of Mist. We also talk about an After the Burial interview, the upcoming Ihsahn album Arktis and the Skuggsja album that finally released. Then we go pretty deep on lyrical themes in metal!

    Surprised that you guys didn’t mention the death of Keith Emerson. You guys have been really good at talking about all the recent deaths, feels weird you skipped over such a legend of the prog scene. Particularly given the reports of his apparent suicide and the comments from his girlfriend stating that his anxiety over letting fans down as he could no longer play “perfectly” is what led to his downward spiral. As well as being really hurt by the online comments made by fans after the most recent tour. Would have been a really interesting discussion because it touches on so many things.

      Good point! We did talk about it in person quite a bit but somehow missed out on it for the cast. Will talk next week! Thanks
