199 – Aest-Ethics

Heavy Pod Is Heavy Cast! Are we going to run out of topics to talk about when there’s no new? Maybe, but that won’t stop us! We can just do random philosophy instead! I mean, there’s Mike Shinoda doing some Linkin Park related stuff on Twitch, Insomnium announcing a stream, War From a Harlot’s Mouth remastering Transmetropolitan, and that new Sweven release… So I guess there really isn’t that much. But there’s a new Tantacrul video, and we discuss the intersection of music, programming, design and philosophy. Then, cool people time with Upload, Oxygen Not Included, and more Warhammer. Enjoy!

Grind My Gears – The Infamous Transatlantic Grind Symphony

I love it when the three carefully selected acts I throw in this column all have an overarching theme that I didn’t realise until the very last minute, forcing my hand and ultimately ensuring the introduction I had previously written gets fucked right into the sea.

What Heavy Blog Is Really Listening To – 7/15/16

For those who missed our last installment, We post biweekly updates covering what the staff at Heavy Blog have been spinning.

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.

Hey! Listen To Neck Of The Woods!

I’ve been very interested in the Vancouver scene as of late. Between the British Columbian city spawning techdeath giants Archspire, up-and-coming progressive metal/hardcore fusion band Of Modern Architecture, and progressive metal god Devin Townsend, it’s safe to say that the scene there is absolutely amazing. Enter yet another band from…
