About Into the Combine - A Metal & Hardcore Podcast

We are 3 metal heads bringing you an elitist-free podcast of all things metal and hardcore.

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.
