Bridges An Obscure Gap
This podcast bridges an otherwise obscure gap between Metal and Hip Hop highlighting a parallel that only the purest of audiophiles and students of music are aware of. I listen to some metal and can often think of artists and bands I like, but can’t recall many of the song names. Where I get lost in the conversation, I’m quickly made to feel comfortable with the hosts thought provoking and sound analysis that seem to “bring it home” for me. It just makes me feel as though when it comes to music, regardless of the genre, we are all in some way shape form or fashion, family.
Keep up the good work.
Sincerely, - Corey From the OTAPshow. @TheRealSchitty on Twitter
Not just for metalheads!
Some really interesting conversations -- they put the metal (and punk/hardcore, etc.) scene into a larger social/cultural context, and on the flipside situate some larger issues into the metal world.
