Are You Morbid? - A Heavy Metal Podcast

In a surprisingly dark but somewhat coherent episode, Zach, Don & Iain take a look back on some of metal’s most beloved concept albums, and a few hidden gems too. Hear Don’s defense of England’s most maligned black metal band, Iain shares the tale of a doomed viking expedition to Ireland, and Zach shed’s light on a mostly forgotten Troma-esque crossover thrash album. Behold as the boys explore Nihilism, the lost appeal of power metal in the states, and what may be the darkest album the podcast will ever talk about. Plus Olivia Hussey’s bosom, Slayer’s lyrical laziness, and Nietzsche’s syphilis.
