It’s official now: The Sideshow Podcast is now ONE YEAR OLD!! From our humble beginnings, to our first interview, through our first Festivus and the creation of our drinking game all the way to our first featured music submission to our exclusive Byzantine interview and all of the mayhem in between, we have been bringing you album reviews, concert recaps, intelligent discussions and senseless arguing for 52 weeks straight, all in the name of everything that is heavy!
As we had discussed in the last few episodes, it turns out we have a few listeners who aren’t into heavy music at all and want to know how they can get into it without scaring themselves away by just accidentally jumping into Brutal Death Metal. We are also fairly certain that most of our listeners have friends or significant others who also just “don’t get it.” So, in this special anniversary episode, Brian, Nick, and Kyle bring you Metal 101, discussing out how to bring someone over to the dark side . As we all know, Metal has many different sub-genres and stylings, and they are not all for everyone. So what we do here is map out what bands and styles should be good for different people depending on their current musical leanings so we can get the uninitiated to hep become defenders of the faith.
Later this week, we will post a rundown of the many bands we discuss and who they may be good for. In the meantime, we would also like to hear from you! Tell us how you got into heavy music and if you have any suggestions for those
fortunate knowledgable. Also, be sure to come back next week for Episode 53 where we kick off year two with some fresh changes, new goodies, and a brand new interview!
We also would like to thank all of our listeners “friends of the Sideshow” for their comments, emails, tweets, Facebook posts, G+ messages, music submissions, interviews and just all of the support this last year. We never saw ourselves getting to where we are now (and where we are going) we couldn’t have done it without you!
