We finished the cast by delivering last rites to ourselves with the spirited countdown - Top 5 Metal Songs You Want Played at Your Funeral!

The BEST Podcast on Metal
Metalheads is the only metal podcast I listen to. It's the only one I NEED to listen to.
Every time I spin an episode, I feel like I'm hanging out with a group of friends discussing music over a few beers. George, Will, John, Matt and Jay have a chemistry and a camaraderie on the mic that's inviting, interesting and always entertaining.
There's also a welcome structure to the cast that features segments like metal news, a top 5, new music, and skullcrushers (trivia), along with interviews with excellent bands, and discussion topics like "How obsessed are we with our record collections?"
If you're looking for a fun and informative podcast on metal that features terrific hosts who know the music inside and out, throw on your battle vest, grab a fine brew and your best Cimmerian sword, and hang with the Metalheads for an afternoon.
