EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Stream The New Cortexiphan Album!

A pompous part of me likes to think I'm Heavy Blog's resident tech death expert (I'm probably not). Whether or not that's actually, objectively true, and/or even remotely a defensible opinion for me to have of myself, I do like to think I have a decent barometer of what's well made and what isn't in the realm of shred heroics and hyperspeed blastbeats that make up this beloved subgenre. Or at least I did have one, until the Cortexiphan debut -- which we have the immense honour of premiering for you tonight -- wandered over into my ears and more or less overloaded it completely. Check out the goods below!

42 – Philosopher’s Guide To The Galaxy

Yeah, this week's dank number fact is pretty obvious. Also, finally we introduce "Bullshit Philosophy Corner" as an official segment! Oh, we also talk about metal. Stuff like Morbid Angel, The HAARP Machine, From First To Last (and Skrillex), Oddland, Opeth, Jinjer, Defeated Sanity, Carnifex, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Equipoise, Alcest and Cortexiphan. Also some dumb top 50 list. Then we do two topics, namely bands that "you had to be there/then to get", and how fans fixate on members of bands who have passed away. Enjoy!
