188 – New Year New Podcast

Not really. It’s the same old stuff. Also, I accidentally deleted my notes so we don’t have a description for this episode. We discuss new music from Benighted, Igorrr and more, and do the usual philosophy thing. Enjoy!

Unfathomable Ruination – Enraged & Unbound

Brutal death metal is a 50/50 proposition for me most of the time. There are several bands in death metal’s nastiest of branches (Wormed, Devourment, Disentomb, Aborted, and Defeated Sanity, for example) that push the boundaries of what the most authoritative sounds in death metal can and should be. However,…

137 – Spank Bank

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! This week we are back on track! Bringing that beat back! We had a good time discussing the not-so-real nu-metal revival (thanks to a new Bring Me The Horizon song), the controversy about Michael Jackson’s posthumous music, Hellenic black metal, Rivers of Nihil’s Apple Music exclusive…

Virulent Depravity – Fruit of the Poisoned Tree

While tech death has seen a consistent stream of high-quality albums over the past few years, it’s stood for a little while now that the genre presently seems to lack a globally identifiable vanguard of sorts. Meanwhile, bands that have traditionally occupied this role have since gone down a series of different paths:  Necrophagist lay…

Benighted – Necrobreed

French death metal masters Benighted have been at this for a while. Being formed in 1998, Necrobreed is their 8th album, and it shows that the band can change and get with the times. Their early work was borderline black metal, then switching to deathgrind, and today, they’ve arrived at modern death metal. They’ve always had a unique touch to their sound, something that made them immediately identifiable. And while Necrobreed is ferocious, tight, and overall a showcase of their current choice of genre, it’s also the least Benighted they’ve ever been. If that’s not a problem, then you’ll be in for a ride.

What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 3/3/17

For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning. Given the amount of time we spend on the site telling you about music that does not fall neatly into the confines of conventional “metal,” it should come as no surprise that many of us on staff have pretty eclectic tastes that range far outside of metal and heavy things. We can’t post about all of them at length here, but we can at least let you know what we’re actually listening to. For those that would like to participate as well (and please do) can drop a 3X3 in the comments, which can be made with tapmusic.net through your last.fm account, or create it manually with topsters.net. Also, consider these posts open threads to talk about pretty much anything music-related. We love hearing all of your thoughts on this stuff and love being able to nerd out along with all of you.

69 – Salt

  Hey! This week we discuss stuff. Stuff like Marduk’s show getting cancelled because they’re thought to be nazis, Wintersun’s neverending shenanigans, Suicide Silence’s new album. Yeah, this episode is called “Salt”. But we also talk about Dimmu Borgir releasing a live DVD and a new album, Gruesome being a…
