Vampires and Metal

Vampires and MetalHeavy Metal Historian
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.

Ebola and Heavy Metal

Ebola and Heavy MetalHeavy Metal Historian
Episode 8:

From its beginning, Heavy Metal has been a genre in which musicians have been unafraid to tackle subjects and topics that are a little on the darker or overwhelming side. Disease and sickness isn’t a new topic for music – but with all this news media frenzy and fear going on currently, where does Ebola fit in, and how has it been observed in Heavy Metal?
