Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! This week we talk about new material by Lamb of God, Ihsahn, August Burns Red, Sepultura, and Scary Pocket's cover of Imogen Heap's Hide and Seek. Finally, Kerrang's list of the top 50 greatest death metal bands right now. Then, cool people time with Amazon's new show Hunters, the hidden brilliance of the story driven platformer Horace, Netflix's Locke & Key adaptation, Wolcen: Lords of Shadow, and Eden's new podcast over at Anarchy SF! Enjoy!
Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast!Regular co-host Cody and I get together to discuss Metallica playing St. Anger stuff live, and then go into an extended conversation about metalcore. Its history, the subgenres, its evolution, and what our favorite bands in the genre are. Mentioning a few artists for SEO purposes: Shadows Fall, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, August Burns Red, Underoath, Lamb of God, Converge. Then we discuss Avengers Endgame with full spoilers, and this video about it. Enjoy!
Unfortunately I don't have a fun or a dab-inducing dank reference for the episode title this time. Just a regular old episode. We discuss new music. Mike Shinoda's EP, Justin Timberlake's album, Cyclamen's new album, Misery Index's single, Judas Priest's new song, yndi halda's EP, and August Burns Red's Messengers Remixed. We also talk about Matt Heavy from Trivium streaming his practice and gaming sessions, and how Best Buy and Target are trying to get rid of CDs. Devin Townsend is quitting DTP, and we discovered this Metallica show that was filmed in Antarctica. Finally, cool people time. The new Netflix cyberpunk show Altered Carbon is amazing. Also Celeste and Subnautica are cool games.
We don't have Eden this week, so Kellan and I discuss Every Time I Die's Jordan Buckley getting sued for stage diving into a fan, causing her to have a concussion and a fractured neck. As a result, he's being sued, and of course the metal community reacts very poorly to this. We then discuss the Linkin Park show held in memory of Chester, featuring members of bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, System of a Down, Blink 182, Bring Me The Horizon and more. Finally, we discuss the new Trivium and August Burns Red albums. Enjoy!
