Werewolves and Metal

Werewolves and MetalHeavy Metal Historian
Episode 34:

We keep on the horror folklore kick, and turn our focus away from vampirism, and over to lycanthropy. We look to the emergence of the creatures that would become known as werewolves, and where the mythology came from. We investigate how they’ve influenced literature and movies and look into Werewolves and Heavy Metal.

Episode 33:

We turn to the horror genre, and examine the emergence of the beings that would become known as vampires, and where the folklore came from. From the appearance of vampiric folklore, to the progress of works like Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, to the vampire tales told in music: we look into Vampires and Heavy Metal.
