114 – Deep Down, Every Genre Is Melodeath

I'm sick this week, so excuse the voice and rambling. But hey, rambling makes for a fun podcast! Specifically, we ramble about promos that get sent out way too early, bands that lose their spark over time, and those weren't even really topics we intended to discuss! But we also talk about new music, like Tesseract, Augury, Augury, Barren Earth, Howling Sycamore, and Glorior Belli. We also speculate about The Safety Fire and Psyopus making comebacks. Finally, Apple Music surpassing Spotify in the US. In cool people time we talk mostly Altered Carbon, light spoilers included. Enjoy!

PREMIERE: Mathcore Project The Sound That Ends Creation Tackles Political Apathy In “This Is Your Brain On Propaganda”

Anyone else remember the good ol' days of mathcore and grindcore on Myspace circa 2008? Chaotic hardcore, grindcore, and deathcore blended in a menagerie of inaccessible weirdness. The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza, Psyopus, See You Next Tuesday, and The Number Twelve Looks Like You were among some of the highlights. They just don't make metal like that much anymore, and what's troubling is that only one of those five bands will be active come 2017 --- No. 12 --- and they've broken up once before already.
