MetalSucks Podcast Episode #46

Opeth mastermind Mikael Åkerfeldt guests on this week’s podcast to talk about their new album that drops in June, his life, how his kids take to metal and whether or not he is done with “death metal” altogether.

Chuck and Godless also discuss the week’s news about As I Lay Dying and the new project without Tim Lambesis, and they try to figure out why the band members keep having unfortunate missteps with their soon-to-be incarcerated lead singer.

Plus, with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction of KISS this week, Chuck and Godless argue about who the first ten inductees into the Metal Hall of Fame would be. Not bands, individuals. Not hard rock, not R & B, not heavy metal, but METAL! It’s harder than you think!

It was a great weekend for metal, the Texas Independence Fest jammed Emo's with metal and a near capacity crowd, and I was proud to have been there with such great bands and good people. Behemoth, Goatwhore, 1349 and so many more destroyed it, and represented well. This week in metal, not a bad one, new Triptykon will melt your face and Emmure might make you lose some IQ points, and the new Crowbar song brutalizes your bones, this year is finally getting better!

MetalSucks Podcast Episode #45

Vince and Axl sit down with the spandex-wrapped vessel of hair metal, Steel Panther. They don’t get to talk for long, but they don’t need much time to make you laugh, and, for that matter, cry (especially when Lexxi Foxx farts on command). They talk about the new Steel Panther album, inspiration for their hit songs, and their talents for flatulence.

Chuck and Godless talk about the rash of performers getting caught on video completely blotto on stage and discuss whether it cheats the fans or makes for ‘special’ moments you will never see again. We also invited MS contributor Grim Kim to offer a serious discussion about women in the metal scene and metal journalism, we talk about how musicians treat young women, but also how young women metal fans are viewed in general and ways to address the stereotypes every female metal fan must confront. Changing lives one podcast at a time!

This week there are some good old standbys in the mainstream of metal and hard rock making an appearance. It is that time of year when the traditional cycle starts, release an album, promote, then off on the summer tour, rinse and repeat. So you will see a bunch of mainstream stuff flooding the market the next few weeks, but most of which is not too terrible. I for one am glad some of this heavy music is starting to cut through!

MetalSucks Podcast #44

Howard Jones, ex-Killswitch Engage and current Devil You Know vocalist, is our guest this week. We talk about his bout with depression, his reasons for leaving KSE, his new project and we generally try and psychoanalyze a way too humble man.

Chuck and Godless also talk about the cuttlefish in the room, the death of Dave Brockie; what his death means to them and what it might mean for the band — Godless already thinking about their future and Chuck is stuck in the past. They also let you hear the new supergroup Killer Be Killed and can’t help but like the song, and they discuss the reasons why bands try to make something new when they already have a good thing going (or if that is even the point of the exercise?).

Songs:
Devil You Know – “Seven Years Alone”
Killer Be Killed – “Wings of Feather and Wax”
GWAR – “Maggots”
