Episode #59: Occult Tales of the Funeral Guardians
SonOfOdin goes "all in" for Black Metal History Month with four albums comprising the various subsections of the black metal genre. In the epic blackened folk section, it’s the Scottish band Saor. In the blackened death section, it’s Australian solo project The Furor. The indie act, Theosophy, provides a Russian interpretation. Finally, Heavy Metal Valhalla looks at black metal’s Norwegian roots with a clasic Darkthrone album. How will guest host Rock-Lobster Johnson respond?
