About Us

Heavy metal music is a vessel for endless connections—bands past and present—lyrical content to philosophy, history, science, religion and beyond. Above all else, this is one mellow geezer’s reflections on metal expressed with introspection, irreverence, digression, and deep appreciation for this golden age of literally ENDLESS metal!

Latest Episodes

#19 Irony is a Dead Scene

This epsode plumbs no organized themes...Yeah we may get back to funeral doom...But I hope doesn't happen in an obvious way....Talking to kindred spirits about metal may lead somewhere or not...Here Ben and Jono talk about a lot of bands but one theme that emerges that is the touch stone for this episode is how metal that rejects irony seems to connect most with our raw (hardened) hearts...Music excerpts from The Dillinger Escape Plan, Enslaved, Morphine, and Bell Witch pour forth...A little stoic philosophy sprinkled in as well...

#19 Irony is a Dead Scene

#18 The Black Death Part 1b

"Atra Mors" the monumental extreme funeral doom record by the seminal band EVOKEN provides the title of the first of several episides exploring a brand outsider music thst could not sound more fresh in 2018. The bands explored here will begin in the late 1980s with bands like Winter, Thergothon, and of course Evoken. It will, indeed, become evident here how much Ben worships the New Jersey legends. Going as far to claim Evoken's "Atra Mors" as the greatest extreme funeral doom record of all time. Other blackened conjurings here include readings from the enormously influential H.P. Lovecraft and other atmospheric surprises to evoke the dark side of the doom! Enjoy both 18 1a-1b as they do flow together (unlike in past technical blunders)...As the great Fister says "If it's too slow, you're too old!"

#17 Going to Candlemass Part 2

Messiah Marcolin or Rob Lowe? Boring question. Both phenomenal and part of the great legacy of Candlemass. Ben continues the journey with reflections, readings from the likes of Caleb Wilde to the classic poem "Kindness" by Naomi Shihab Nye..As well as our human bond to the ancient stars...Linearity also be damned: Reaching forward from Rob Lowe era Candlemass to young and killer Crypt Sermon sbd their stunning vocalist Brooks Wilson...Enjoy!

#16 Going to Candlemass Part 1

Candlemass is a portal into endless metal past and present. The journey begins now! Many thanks to D Franklin for his insightful article "Epicus, Metallicus, Deserticus" which Ben draws extensively from on this episide. The piece appeared in the always superb The Quietus on April 27, 2017.

Hammered! Hooded Menace 2018

Ben sits with jaw on ground. It’s only February and he may just have heard his favorite record of 2018: Ossuarium Silhouettes Unhallowed by Hooded Menace. The 5th record by the Finnish death doom masters...Absolutely mindblowing....To hear accompanying tracks get the Anchor Radio App and buy the record: https://hoodedmenace.bandcamp.com
