The Metal Podcast Episode #56
With a roar not a whimper, we came into this world screaming and crying, we should go out the same way…actually, not the case. This is the final episode of The Metal Podcast, it has been with great appreciation that we have sustained such a long and beautiful tenure as your favorite source for metal interviews, but it has now come to an end. I know there will be much sadness and great anger, but we cut you loose from the weekly burden of listening to excellent interviews and our metal nerd rage.

The Metal Podcast Episode #55 - 70000 Tons of Podcast
70000 Tons of Metal, the world’s largest and first metal cruise sailed to Grand Turk this year. For the first time in many years Godless had to stay home, but I still was able to sail the seas to bring you 70000 Tons of Podcast! With 61 band on board and people from 75 different countries represented this year, it was one of the best I have experienced. Many bands weren’t doing the interview circuit, but this episode features three amazing bands: Sepultura, Septicflesh and Goatwhore.

The Metal Podcast Episode #54 - Good Tiger
Elliot Coleman guests this week on the heels of the release of Good Tiger’s latest record We Will All Be Gone.

The Metal Podcast Episode #53
Godless couldn’t wait for the 70000 Tons of Podcast to ask me about the cruise this year, out of sheer envy, the need to live vicariously through his experience or maybe just to help remember stuff that happened after too much drinking. Either way, we talk about the trip to Grand Turk and the 60+ bands that played, the experience and much more.

The Metal Podcast Episode #49
We discuss King 810 being the new champion for free speech that metal really needs right now, or are they? Has Youtube effectively created a controversial band by taking down their content? (and ultimately reposting it) Metal needs to be dangerous again, but what that means in 2018 appears to be quite a bit different from the 1980s. It seems to be much more difficult to draw the ire of parents and the establishment.

Spencer Sotelo, lead singer of Periphery, recently launched a solo project Endur and let’s just say it strays from the path the band had gone before in many ways, but in others you can hear where the creative force he brings to the group spread out for you to examine on American Parasite.
