MetalSucks Podcast #60

Mark Kloeppel, guitarist and vocalist for Misery Index, guests this week. We discuss how a metal band can make a living these days, whether or not low level bands are touring too much (and if that’s ruining things for everyone else), and their new record The Killing Gods, the record Kloeppel claims they really wanted to make all along.

Chuck makes the claim that Motley Crue need to retire after seeing Vince Neil butcher their set last week (even with his teleprompter), and we hear a new song from In Flames that has some really… different… production choices.

Songs:
Misery Index – “Gallows Humor”
In Flames – “Through Oblivion”

Hard to believe we are about to enter August in a few short days, the summer metal season is in full force, Summer Slaughter coming up, Mayhem on the Horizon and still more to come. I look forward to the Fall, when we can get the small shows back in the clubs and it cools off a bit, but that's just me...This week the sweet new album from Within the Ruins gets official, the one woman band of Myrkur takes us by surprise and more comes to the HD channel! www.nocontrolradio.com

MetalSucks Podcast Episode #59

Bass wunderkind Dan Briggs of Between the Buried and Me, Trioscapes and Orbs guests this week on the podcast. We discuss the foundations of his writing techniques, playing with two bands on the same tour, and why the members of BTBAM choose not to interact with their fans at shows.

Chuck and Godless discuss the recent fascination with Babymetal, Unlocking the Truth and metal “youngsters” in general. Do we not have enough young blood making music, or are we setting the bar too high for these up-and-comers? We also discuss whether $25K is a good salary for a touring musician in light of the revealing statement released by ex-Testament bass player Greg Christian.

Songs:
Trioscapes – “Stab Wounds”
Monuments – “Origin of Excape”
