Was taking a look at some stats from the Podcast... Looking at the last calendar year, maybe you haven't checked out the Podcast yet? Well... if that is indeed the case, maybe start with some highlighted episodes from others who seem to really like these particular demonstrations... with that being said, here are the 10 MOST DOWNLOADED episodes of The Heavy Metal Over A Six Pack Podcast in the last calendar year....
10: EP 64 - Justin Bonitz
This was an artist interview with the great Justin Bonitz of "Tallah" and "Hungry Lights". Good reason this episode makes it to the top ten... this dude is an awesome character, was a great interview, and he performed a LIVE Acoustic exclusive from his "Hungry Lights" collection... Find his projects below:
Hungry Lights and Tallah:
9: EP 25 - Rap Metal Crossovers
A conversation piece... we discuss some pretty epic tunes when Metal Bands venture into the Rap/ Hip Hop world and make them their own! This is a cool genre swap ... and in my personal opinion... usually better than the original...
8: EP 69 - Smashed Banana Album Reviews
One of my favorite things to do on the podcast ... that is reviewing albums with our "Smashed Banana" Rating system... see the album review section for details! Killswitch Engage, Atreyu, Vorga, Times Of Grace.. reviled in this episode... good stuff!
7: EP 59 - Wash Brain Immediately
This is a great episode not only because these dudes all came in studio for the interview which is always a great time, but because these dudes are truly unique to this point as far as talent and sound that we have had on the show. We at the podcast really encourage diversity, we are metal heads through and through, but we will venture to lands of unknown if it strikes our fancy... and these dudes do just that! Check them out below:
6: EP 50 - Fifty Episodes Deep
Earlier in the year this was us celebrating our 50th Milestone, we shared some tunes that were sent to us from Inverse Records, played some games, and shared some great headlines. Good stuff. A general feel for the podcast if you haven't listened prior..
5: EP 20 - Artist Tribute Pantera
We decided to do this episode after Vinnie Paul had passed away... it is a full tribute to Pantera and their awesomeness, and really what they meant to us Hosts and what their music has meant to the world really... I believe this is the first time we really focus on a Metal Icon, a topic that will come up more and more in future episodes.. but here we are in the top 5!! and we roll on to Number 4..
4: EP 75 - Review of the Underground Continues
Another episode going back to the Smashed Banana Album reviews but this time around... even more of what I like to do these reviews are from bands from the quote "Underground" and they share music with us! So you can take in the review and listen to the tunes... we were spoiled on this episode because each of these bands is F@#$ing amazing...
3: EP 77 - A Gory and Disturbing Halloween Episode
In 2018 we gave ya a Halloween Themed Song Playlist... this year we decided to track down some cool stories, and maybe some of the most disturbing lyrics you can find in a Metal tune... listen in as we make Co Host Dave squirm in his seat and not want to participate anymore... HAHAHA..
2: EP 76 - Cynthia Luna Frost of Snow I.U.
Cynthia Luna Frost gave us a call from Sweden to chat about Snow I.U. and Snowfest, among some other topics only to be delivered via HMOA6PACK style... and you all tell me... what the F is I.U. supposed to mean?!?! Check them out below:
Number 1 Most Downloaded: EP 37 - Heavy Metal Christmas Playlist
All you big bad Metalheads get a little soft spot for the Christmas season don't ya?? We hear ya! And the stats don't lie... some of you all listened to this shit twice!
