203 – In Flames At Home

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! This week we talk about M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold making a statement about BLM, Clipping’s new song on the matter, System of a Down being divided on the issue, and Fit for An Autopsy guitarist Pat doing his part. Also, some new and not so new music, in the form of Nevermore covers from Paladin, some techno-thrash in Lör and Vauxdvihl and Alarum, In Flames remastering and re-recording Clayman, and then new stuff from Protest the Hero, Cytotoxin and Unleash the Archers. Then, cool people stuff with Hannibal and The Last of Us Part II. Enjoy!
