Are You Morbid?: A Heavy Metal Podcast

3 friends discuss metal with varying degrees of seriousness

Prototype XI - Airing of Grievances & Feats of Strength

August 23rd, 2017

If this is your first episode, please note, we generally try to be a little more impartial and educational, but we're also bitter angry people and occasionally there's some spillage. So yeah, lot's of strong opinions and rage here. Start with an earlier episode if this doesn't appeal, and know we probably won't be doing this again

In what may have been our worst episode idea yet, we decided to examine 12 albums by bands we hate, or at least thought we would hate. We thought it would be a 3 hour bitch session, tried to make it an in depth examination of why we hated these bands, but it's basically a 3 hour bitch session. We talk about Insufferable fanbases, lyrical laziness, outdated humor, sleazy behavior and delusions of grandeur, plus we use the word objective 15 times and there's a somewhat coherent rant about Eastern philosophies incompatibility with one of the host's deep rooted sense of cosmic horror. We end with 3 palette cleansers from bands we love.

"Bad Albums" List in Show Notes Here:
*Not Posting here because it seems unfair to get listens based on the bands popularity when we're not being nice*
