Supporting (Underground) Metal in the “Interweb” Part the Second

supporting underground metal

Occasionally I ponder upon what I can do help out those who take time out to toss me a few words. This sees the sites second collaboration with The Foehammer Podcast and yet another with its creator Derek C (otherwise known as @He11fire on Twitter). Without further ado and possible grammatical stumbling down a path which might lead many astray here are Derek’s words and the breakdown of The Foehammer Metal Podcast Take 60 (which apparently has somewhat of a theme).

Happy Thursday, Eternal Hails and the Utmost Thanks to CultMetalFlix for once again featuring Foehammer Metal Podcast in Abrasive Audio!

This week’s episode must have been a subconscious nudge made by the “drinky” thought tank that most people keep their smart thinking cells in. All 3 album reviews and intro song were something I had sitting in the “someday” pile just waiting for the right time to ramble about them. Thus, by the secret magics of black metal, they aligned to reign upon my inspiration.

These were albums I had binged and put back on the shelf, and through a swarm of new releases and recent purchases I was currently spinning, this was the stuff I needed more of. I had to sever from one of my only convictions with the podcast. “Try to talk about stuff other than just black metal”. Well, bad news Bitch, this is an “Oops, all Black Metals” episode and it just felt right.

Oops. there’s Darkness everywhere!

That’s not to say it went smoothly by any means. In fact, I messed up the first segment so many times the beer you hear me crack open in the beginning is actually my 10th, and yet I powered through the night leaving wreck and ruination for “Tomorrow Derek”.

This week’s opening band:

thy dying light

But does “X” really mark the spot?

Thy Dying Light – Cold in Death EP

A raw and melodic Black Metal band from the UK that just released their first full length.

This week’s featured albums:

Elegiac – Vampyric Odinism

A high energy release from one of my favorite heathen/pagan black metal bands.

Bihargam – Castaka

Grim Black Metal that makes some interesting riff choices.

Steingrab - Mystik

It even comes in a handy dandy case

Steingrab – Mystik

Bleak Sorrowful Black Metal that still sounds like it’s got some muscle.

Supporting (underground) Metal on the “Interweb”

Occasionally I ponder upon what I can do to help out those who take time out to toss me a few words. He11fire is one such fellow and our “partnership” dates back to (a Year End list posting to be technical) when I first starting taking this whole posting on WordPress thing seriously. Since then He11fire has always been up to BS on all manner of things metal as well toss an occasional opinion on an album I believe he’ll enjoy (most recently on a band called Imipolex within the first Abrasive Audio Special Edition piece). Without further detours and inane ramblings, I’d like to present an ongoing “something” he is especially proud of.

The Foehammer Metal Podcast is a hard drinking interweb radio disaster that has seen many forms in the last 5 years, before calling it quits in 2017. Recently I (He11fir3: Host) decided to start the podcast back up after a year+ hiatus and deliver it in the simplest most humble of styles: I’m going to pound beers and praise albums I love. Since Episode 51: Drunksal, the goal has been to release fun, down to earth, blurry, slurry album recommendations, not from a critic, but from a fan and fellow metal nerd. Each “review” is accompanied with a song from the album, which gives me time to drink beer and air guitar between segments.

In the upcoming months F.M.P (that’s an abbreviation for those not paying attention – Cult) is also going to incorporating talking segments with my favorite like -minded maniacs, band interviews, wicked dumb video content, stickers featuring the “Wicked WereRiff” from Rottenhead Artworks, endless brain numbing memes, and hopefully some collaboration projects with any other metal freaks that want to put something out there.

foehammer podcast ep 59

This week with Episode 59: And Canbeers From Empty to Dust, I decided to cover albums that stuck to the traditional styles of their sub genres and completely nailed it. Not to say any of these albums aren’t original or creative, but that they focus on these genres unique strengths and how they deliver the comfort we love to come home too.

Cor Blimey -That’s a nice looking package!

The only twist is the opening band, Cult of Eibon, who combine the stylistic darkness of Black Metal with the guitar tone and power chord driven riffage of 80’s metal.

The featured albums this week are:

Speedclaw – “Beast in the Mist”, playing Mighty Speed Metal like they did “Back Then”


Stutthof – “And Cosmos from Ashes to Dust”. Atmospheric Black Metal to be played at the twilight of the end times. As the sky swallows all existence.

And Norns – “In Fog They Appear”. Pure Raw Finnish Black Metal Demo From 2005
