For episode 111, Radical Research returns to its spiritual homeland of Norway. But on this trip, RR steers clear of the usual avant suspects and instead climbs the Mountains of Might to take a closer look at Immortal’s twisted and divisive fourth alb... more

We continue our wander through the 4CD Intrigue compilation. This installment features 15 UK bands, several which we’d never heard of before (Art Nouveau, New Musik, Section 25). We hope this episode helps prove curator Steven Wilson’s note that Intr... more

Sigh is unquestionably one of the weirdest bands in the metal realm. And since Radical Research skews weird, and since we are both fans of Sigh since the mid ‘90s, it seemed obvious that we would eventually do an episode featuring some of the very we... more

  • I HATE when this happens……

    You discover a podcast with a host that knows EVERYTHING about the subject he’s talking about. The only problem is that most of what he covers you aren’t that interested in. BUT, the Fates Warning episode was fantastic, as were his book on the band and Peter Steele, so 5 star anyway. Hopefully he can cover some of the less obscure bands once in a while. Maybe a deep dive on Queensryche or Type O’s discography.

  • Keep Metal Weird

    Episodes about weird metal, bass solos, cool synths - I'm in. I've valued Jeff Wagner's opinions for over 20 years, and I've come to value Hunter Ginn's equally. Fun discussions of obsessive favorites and plenty of things I never knew about.😈

  • Very little metal, lots of prog rock.

    Jeff Wagner is driving this podcast, and he’s a decent writer. But a metalhead he is not. Co-host Hunter is in love with Jeff and cannot bring himself to ever disagree with anything Jeff says. They have hot takes like “back even Mortal Skuld was getting record deals” and “A Grand Declaration of War” is the best Mayhem album. For a metal podcast, these fellas really, really like and promote non-metal things.

  • A diamond in the rough

    Even if you don’t care about some of the bands these mighty gents touch upon, their surgical precision to dissecting and breaking down the most essential elements of each artists contributions. This podcast has turned me onto so many bands that I had never heard, and ended up going down the rabbit hole on several, and have found new favorite bands and albums. Thank ye mighty gents, you are doing the Word’s Lork.
