Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 26

This week on the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) reintroduces our ticket giveaway for Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

After the success of our DevilDriver giveaway in June, we’re inviting South Florida residents (or any able/willing to attend) to see The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, Chelsea Grin, and Alterbeast on Monday, October 13th. If interested, email podcast@metalunderground.com with subject heading “Black Dahlia Murder,” and submit your full name matching your ID.

Even if you can’t make it, lend us a hand and share our giveaway far and wide on social media; the more popular it gets, the more we can spread this experiment nationwide and to a venue near you.

Next, co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) weighs in with a rather prickly and pessimistic insight on the longterm effects of Internet culture on the music/metal scene, specifically the downsides (and there are always downsides).

The downloading issue has been talked to death, but Mike sees some mass psychological implications at work here as well, and they do not bode well for the future. His hypothesis: due to the increased platform the Web offers to egoistic, insecure, and often talent-starved amateurs, there will never again emerge a tremendously popular, universally loved rock ’n’ roll band, much less a metal band. Listen in to hear his full thoughts on the matter.

Finally, Kevin offers a detailed review of the new self-titled album from Darkest Hour, which boasts a new rhythm section and a potentially divisive new direction in style - although Kevin puts up a passionate and justified defense on the album’s behalf. Do you agree?

Listen in here, subscribe via iTunes and RSS, offer feedback if you’re so inclined, and enjoy!

Alterbeast Splitting With Vocalst

Alterbeast has issued the following announcement about parting ways with the band's vocalist:

"Unfortunately our singer Cameron will be stepping down from vocal duties at the end of August, we are sad to see him go, but we will be forever grateful for his contributions to this band and cant wait to see what cool and amazing stuff he does next! We hope you will roll out to Cameron's last show w/ Origin, King Parrot, Beyond Creation and more Friday, Aug. 29th in South Lake Tahoe and send him off in DM fashion!

"Our good friend Monte Barnard (The Antioch Synopsis, Soma Ras) will be stepping up to fill Cam's shoes, and let us tell ya, this guy is a fucking unstoppable killing machine! He is the real deal. One of the best frontmen we have ever seen, with a vocal range that is unmatched by most. We really lucked out in gaining this most welcomed member to the Alterbeast family. Catch him with us this October when we tour North America w/The Black Dahlia Murder, Suicide Silence, and Chelsea Grin! Presented by Blackcraft! Check the dates below!" More...
