Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 5: Karate, Catfish, And Killers
Band Photo: As I Lay Dying (?)
Co-hosts Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) and Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) kick off this week’s podcast episode by tackling some of the cultural peculiarities of hardcore crowds versus metal crowds, with a specific focus on the irritating “hardcore dancing” trend.
Next up, a public service warning. Mike shares a disturbing story related by singer Tommy “Vext” Cummings (Snot, ex-Divine Heresy), in which he confesses to have been manipulated and deceived by a conniving “Catfish” at large within the online metal network. Beware a Facebook profile by the name of “Elizabeth George” and the Twitter handle "SWEET_BGIRL" with multiple connections to metal industry types; this individual is a dangerous con artist.
Also, on a related and semi-prophetic note, refer to the opening segment of the recent OpEd “From Dicks To Chicks.”
Finally, the news of the week: Kevin and Mike discuss the fate of As I Lay Dying and Austrian Death Machine bandleader Tim Lambesis, who has just pled guilty to the attempted contract murder of his estranged wife. As they explore the implications, your hosts do not shy away from facing various matters of morality, personal responsibility, standards, and accountability.
