Death’s Door – April 2020

It’s that time again. Death’s Door. Let’s go. The world is a pestilential pit of sickness, stupidity, and a very uncomfortable cocktail of anxiety, depression, and boredom. But it isn’t all bad. Death metal is awesome, and 2020 has been absolutely loaded with quality content. Month over month I’m becoming…

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…
