It's an album that contains multitudes this month, as the storylines are aplenty around PM5K's breakthrough album. The lead singer is Rob Zombie's brother. He's obsessed with science fiction (or so he says). The album contains almost no emotion whatsoever in a genre known for its ability to capture the feelings of youth. It's supposedly a loose concept album, but there doesn't seem to be a concept other than vague lyrics about space and martians. Simply put, there's a lot going on and we tackle it all, from their breakthrough on the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater soundtrack and an early Ozzfest album, to Spider-One's perplexing interviews that paint a picture of a guy who might not be all that into science fiction after all, especially for a guy who never stops talking about it. This is also our two-year anniversary show, and we reflect a little bit on what has changed in the nu-metal landscape since we started in 2019 and how the podcast has meant a lot to the both of us.
If you want even more of that very same podcast, you can head on over to patreon.com/thepodkast, where $4/month gets you THREE bonus episodes every month. You'll get one full-length bonus, and two mini bonuses where we review individual nu-metal songs. Last month, we covered a playlist of nu-metal covers with our friend Libby Watson, and as you might expect, it ran the gamut from great to terrible and everything in between. We also have another special live show coming up this month and it's all gonna be great, so hop on over now and support the show!
