Metal Hammer Podcast: Basic Metal Bitch

Tobias Forge

The new Metal Hammer is on sale now, featuring almighty cover stars Ghost! We talk you through the issue.

We also review shows from Boston hardcore crew Vein and extreme metallers Gaahls Wyrd.

Plus, we chat about mainstream bands with weirdly metal names, what metal songs we’d play to an unborn child, and why El’s a self-confessed basic metal bitch.

The Metal Hammer Podcast is powered by Olympus.
