Are You Morbid? - A Heavy Metal Podcast

In what is appropriately, and perhaps ironically their longest most bloated episode to date, we start the show with Don’s report on Warped Tour and the recent controversy it’s brought on, and moves right along to a rant about the horrible human being Otep Shamaya has shown herself to be, then Zach continues the ravings with a dig at some shitty Kreator fans. Finally getting on topic (for the most part) the guys discuss 3 sub-genres of Doom metal. Don, tackles some early work by the notorious Peaceville Three, and other death/doom from our European friends, Iain takes on the pride of Dixie with some Sludge Metal classics, and Zach struggles to find things to say about the mysterious early nineties forbearers of what would become Stoner Metal. Plus Chumbawumba, the weather’s role in doom appreciation and creation, last week’s recommendations and more.
