Innovation is a word that gets thrown around a lot on this show.  On this episode of Discography Discussion Dan, Joe, and Jon try to put every release by Eighteen Visions into the proper context to figure out if they were just another metalcore band in the 2000’s or if they pioneered and paved the way for all the bands to follow. #discussmetal #eighteenvisions Join our Patreon: Discography Discussion on Patreon - http://bit.ly/discussmetalpatreon Discography Discussion Podcast Homepage -...

We finally heard your cries.  We decided to open up about Rage Against the Machine.  Is this band as influential as advertised?  Basically, yes, but that's not really up for debate here.  We share our memories of getting into Rage Against the Machine, and give speculation of what the band would sound like today if they had not had such a long hiatus.  It’s time for your favorite band, and ours, on this episode of Discography Discussion.  Check it out! #discussmetal...

We dug deep this week in order to bring you another band that can only be described as a “sure thing.”  Suffocation rewrote the book on technical death metal in the early 90's and have continued to push that sound to its limits.  Does a band need to reinvent the wheel on every album?  Does Suffocation?  Listen to find out! #discussmetal #Suffocation Join our Patreon: Discography Discussion on Patreon - http://bit.ly/discussmetalpatreon Discography Discussion Podcast Homepage -...

It can be challenging to talk about a band with as much of a lasting legacy as Iron Maiden.  It took us years to work up the courage to listen to every album by this seminal English band.  Dan and Joe work their way through this iconic discography to see if the band still has that “X Factor” all these years later. Dan is coming in hot on this one! Enjoy! #discussmetal #IronMaiden Join our Patreon: Discography Discussion on Patreon - http://bit.ly/discussmetalpatreon Discography Discussion...

On this episode of Discography Discussion we dive into Skindred, and try to decide if this reggae influenced hard rock/nu-metal band actually reminds us of Coheed and Cambria…...Trust me it was weird for us too.

It seems like every band we talk about from the nu-metal era of music is prone to intense periods of experimentation.  Incubus is no stranger to this concept, yet in a strange turn, we try to make heads or tails of a band that was super experimental EARLY ON in their career.  Did the band mature over time, or did they fizzle out?  We have our thoughts.

Cephalic Carnage is a band ahead of their time.  Are they simply a grindcore band with technical death metal skills?  Dan, Joe, and Geoff will answer that question, and more, on this episode of Discography Discussion.  It’s unbelievable how modern some of their music is especially in the later part of their discography.  If they're not your favorite band today, they might be very soon.  Enjoy.  #discussmetal #cephaliccarnage Join our Patreon: Discography Discussion on Patreon -...

Remember back in the mid 2000s when every metalcore band decided they wanted to become a southern rock band?  That is largely Maylene and the Sons of Distaster’s fault.  Were they the ones to kick off this trend?  They certainly weren’t the last.   This week Dan, Joe, and Jon try to figure out if it was all just a gimmick or if you can slightly smell a hint of barbeque in the air when listening to Dry the River.  Enjoy. #discussmetal #Maylene Join our Patreon: Discography Discussion on...
