In past episodes, we have briefly touched upon the fact that is important to know where your music is coming from, and in Episode 22, I (Brian) mentioned a book called Choosing Death. This is just one of a few books that I think should be required reading for metal-head, despite what styles you are into. We all know Black Sabbath started it all, and we are all aware of classic bands like Metallica, Maiden, and Priest as well as other “classics” like Napalm Death, Carcass and Death…or Mayhem, Bathory and Immortal, if you are into Black Metal. But how did it all come about? How did one thing lead to another? Well, luckily some people already did the research for us and presented these non-fiction tales into interesting reads.
Lots of new music on this one! Also, a lively debate about over-saturation, Loutallica, and another head to head Freak Of The Week.
