This week we have a great interview! If you haven’t heard of Cyborg Octopus, you should! Check out my review here. David Wu, the man who is behind 90% of the curtain joins us to talk about the process of song writing, progressive metal, creativity and much more. One of the best interviews we’ve had! After that, we go into some unfortunate news, then some fortunate news. We talk about at the unfortunate suicide of Adam Young. Then, new music from Black Crown Initiate, Mephistopheles, Revocation, Vale of Pnath, Astronoid, Hannes Grossmann (Indiegogo here), Abiogenesis, Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum and Despised Icon. We then discuss further displays of racism by Phil Anselmo, and dive into some of the more problematic side of black metal fandom, including how to talk about Filosofem by Burzum. Finally, we talk about an interesting cover of The Trooper by Iron Maiden, and a shameful turnout at Download Festival for Periphery (pic after the cut). Enjoy!
