To the army of haters in response to last week’s episode: the Metalunderground.com Official Podcast thanks you for helping keep things exciting! We understand, however, that it wouldn’t be fair to routinely discuss the likes of Babymetal for such a broo-tal crowd. So to make it up to you, this week we bring you some good old Swedish death metal.

Deathstars.

Just kidding. Co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) gives a first reaction to “Back To The Front,” the new album from The Artist Formerly Known As Entombed, or “Entombed A.D.” in legalese. Recent name ownership disputes forced the current lineup - including longtime vocalist L.G. Petrov - to make the slight alteration, but thankfully, the music itself sounds like good old Entombed. Listen in to check out Mike’s full thoughts on the matter.

Next, co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) reviews - big incoming shocker here - another “prog-djent-core” album. Indeed, he has no shame, and makes no apologies. This week it’s “No Sleep,” the recent sophomore effort from Southern Californian five-piece Volumes. Regarding the band’s creativity, Kevin offers an insightful take on the “good artists borrow; great artists steal” maxim. Listen in to hear more!

“Djent-core” is one general arena in which Kevin and Mike differ greatly, and Mike has the nerve to utter some less-than-flattering remarks about a recent After The Burial performance he witnessed (you can’t see it, but Kevin was wearing the band’s shirt during this discussion). Their disagreement ends as Mike moves on to the real reason he was attending: Killswitch Engage. A full report and lively discussion of the influential band ensues.
