    The Heavyist #234 Foreign Hands / Zan from Moru

    The Heavyist #234 Foreign Hands / Zan from Moru

    After the standard introductory nonsense including Gary complaining about sleep deprivation (again) and Sonny FINALLY getting on the Big Ass Truck with everyone we get into the review of the week.

    We have to eat some pretty substantial quantities of humble pie when we discuss the fantastic debut record from metalcore upstarts Foreign Hands

    then we are joined by Zan Greene from Nashville progressive death metalcore band Moru to talk about their insanely good new record, we get into the writing process, why it took so bloody long to come out, the frankly amazing concept of the record and what the band has in store for the future, as well as his inside track on the bands to watch coming out of the Nashville scene

    We've been chatting with Zan a LONG time so it was really nice to finally get him on the show and get into some discussions with him!

    AOR also this week comes from Awake the Secrets, Apes and Mirar

    Timestamps:

    Intro - 00:00
    Foreign Hands - What's Left Unsaid - 14:53
    Zan from Moru - 31:19
    AOR (Any Other Riffness) - 1:05:55

    and the one-man Norwegian riff factory that is Vredehammer released a stonker of a record!

10 blast beats out of 10

This podcast has been one of the few things keeping me insane throughout this unholy year. The boys never fail to entertain me, and the constant stream of unadulterated bangers that they recommend every week has been an absolute blessing. I’ve expanded my musical taste so much over the past 10 months of listening and have discovered so many gnarly bands because of Gary and Sonny. I honestly can’t think of two better dudes to have as my premier riff dealers! This pod is an instant 10/10 recommend from me

Excellent Podcast to Expand your Music Horizons

Sonny and Gary are a blast to listen to. They are probably the 2 best salesmen on planet Earth. The way they talk about the albums on their podcasts is like listening to kids in a candy store. Seriously, you could not even like heavy music, but after listening to one episode of this podcast i promise you will at least try to listen to some heavy music. These guys could suddenly stop talking about music and start trying to sell me a timeshare in the middle of a corn field in Nebraska and I’m pretty sure after listening to how hyped they got about that timeshare, I will be frothing at the mouth to buy one. Great Energy! Kept it up!

Sick dudes covering sick tunes

The alter of radness is the one and only place you need to visit in order to get all of your dark fulfilling needs. Sonny and Gary give you the most absolute bangin tunes to listen to while always keeping the humor alive too. Best music podcast out there for sure 🤘🏻
