2020 The Year That Was: Guest Portion: TDMG (Terminus Extreme Metal Podcast) & Nick (Hessian Firm)

Even later than the first half of The Year That Was: 2020 in Review Podcast, here is part two. Earlier this year we sat down with The Death Metal Guy from Terminus: Extreme Metal Podcast and Nick from Hessian Firm to talk more about 2020 as a year. We talk about what was worth listening to in the year of Covid, black metal purism, the two schools of quality music: innovative, ground breaking music and quality music that simply adopts and perfects already beloved styles, classic thrash and the bands that made it what it was and much more in what is by far our longest episode to date.

Welcome to the Cave

Well as promised here is our first podcast. We called this one Welcome to the Cave, as it’s an introduction from us to all of you.

We talk about us a little, the story of the page, then we discuss our albums of the year, what’s coming up worth being excited about, and a few other topics.

This one is a bit more free-flowing than the interviews we’ve recorded, so we hope you enjoy hearing what the three of us have to say.
