Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! Back to a regular week. Some discussion about the new Slipknot and Northlane albums, Humanity’s Last Breath and the intellectual equivalent of that scene from Venom where Tom Hardy dives in the lobster tank, and Tool/King Crimson coming to streaming services. Along the line, we do some bullshit philosophy on what happens to art when you can recreate it, what is the difference between music as written and music as recorded, the aesthetic of what you do and don’t hear on the recording, and a lot more. Then, cool people time with Midsommar, Fargo and The Boys. Enjoy!
Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! This week there’s a bit of a twist. You’ll see what I mean. The topics of discussion are long first songs, and the intricacy of writing chug-heavy music that seems simplistic. Some of the discussed artists include Periphery, Machine Head, Native Construct and Heart of a Coward. Then, cool people time with Super Mario Maker 2. My maker ID is LPS-QH8-94G. Enjoy!
