76. Gorod Interview, New Recommendations, & Live Show Reviews

So we talked too long on the “Black Metal for Beginner’s” episode so we broke it into two episodes. Here’s the other half! We talked to Julien Nutz Deyres – the vocalist of Gorod about the French extreme metal scene including what it was like in the early days, how it has evolved, what its signature sound is, and how it is today. We also talked about their new album “Aethra”. He was a super nice guy with a lot of great view points (sorry for the background noise – Julien was in a loud cafe!). As for the rest of the episode we talked about the new music we’ve been jamming as well as live show reviews for Damnation Fest, Inferi, At the Gates/Behemoth, and Rivers of Nihil/Exhumed/Revocation. Stan is still away raising his child in the deep woods of Norway in order to all allow the metal to seep deeper into her veins so Phil of Phils Breakfast Metal was with us as our guest host. Stay tuned for the return of Stan the Man on the next Episode… coming soon!!

Black Metal for Beginners & Revocation Interview

Stan is away being a new dad so on this episode we were joined by two special guests to help fill in. We have listener Phil Wadey from the podcast “Phil’s Breakfast Metal” and the band “Void Titan” as well as listener Young James who has a Youtube series going right now documenting his journey into death metal. Find all those links below. The challenge for this episode was to pick 15 albums to convince someone who isn’t into black metal that they should. James was our test subject as he is not a fan of black metal at all. So hit play and see how well we did! Stay tuned for a live interview with Dave Davidson of Revocation at the end! Interview starts at the 1 hour 25 min mark if you get sick of us.
