It’s been just over three years since Metal Mondays began here at OurStage, with the first post — an interview with former Darkest Hour guitarist Kris Norris about The Kris Norris Projekt — debuting July 20th, 2009. Since then, not a lot has changed in Metal Monday land. It’s been a steady stream of metal coverage: reviews, interviews, features, etc. Now, however, we have a major addition to our content: Metal Monday, The Podcast. Every handful of weeks, we’ll be dropping a new Metal Monday podcast, streaming to you some tasty OurStage metal jams, OurStage metal happenings, news, and maybe even inviting some guests on the show. So, without further adieu, here’s the first installment. Settle in.
It’s 2012, and you know what that means: it won’t be long until either the world ends or a whole bunch of people freak out for no reason in particular—sort of like Y2K, only more widespread/insane. I don’t know about you, but I can’t really think of anything more fitting than listening to a handful of emphatic metal songs about our (potential) impending doom to count down the time until the apocalypse. No matter how you look at the (again, potential) apocalypse, let this playlist lead you into it. You’ll either be going out on the most metal note, or just be listening to great metal for no real reason—that’s about as close to a win-win situation as you can have at the end, right?
