Razorcake Podcast #195

Metal was the first non-mainstream genre of music I got into. In middle school I had some older friends that got me into metal (Christian metal, at that! Don’t ask—it’s a long story). Eventually, I found my way into hardcore and punk and, in the process, realized there were a lot of quality (non-Christian) independent metal bands, too. Metal still holds a special place in my heart due to its ability to express the rage and aggression I often feel, even though I’m way past my teen years. (It never really goes away. You just learn to live with it.)

So I present to you some of my favorite independent metal songs (plus Slayer, because, well, they’re Slayer.) Hope you hear something you like!

To play the file without downloading (it depends on your computer's configuration for playing music files), just click it. Your media player should recognize what to do with an mp3. (If it doesn't, you're on your own.)
