30 Minutes Over Tokyo - The Metal Edition
I found a had an hour or two spare this afternoon so I decided to hastily put together an idea that had been brewing in my head for a while, which was to do a podcast dedicated entirely to METAL!
Now, I know I may not be the likeliest candidate to attempt such an enterprise and I would never claim to be any kind of authority on the genre (I defer to DsD's, Kalyr's and others' superior knowledge each time) but there are certain strands of metal that I do love (very different strands to that of the aforementioned experts i'm sure!) and I felt it was a bit of an untold story.
So, raise the "devil horn" salute and prepare to wake up tomorrow with a throbbing bangover!!
p.s. apologies for the rushed nature of the whole thing and the hissing noise in the background, I think it must have been the cicadas outside (seriously!).
p.p.s. Warning!! Contains strong language. Not out of choice of course, just in the reading of band names and song titles.
p.p.p.s. I should have mentioned that I don't approve in any way of the lyrics and sentiment of the last track in part 1, I wanted to play it as an example of how the genre had lost any positive political force and had just become a contest to be the most offensive and extreme.
