Very informative metal podcast!
The guys make a great show with their differing opinions and very thorough notes. I learn something new about metal every time. I recommend to anyone I know into metal. Definitely subscribe all episodes are worth a listen! Keep them coming!
Hey man they don’t talk about basketball enough but I just spent a whole episode head banging and I’m now seriously concussed. So it’s pretty tight.
Just one gripe
When I listen to a podcast on Metal the last thing I want to hear is the political views of the host. F*** you can't even listen to a discussion on Tech Death Metal without leftist snowflaking. Other than that a solid podcast.
