Welcome to Episode 2 of the Celtic Frosty Podcast. This month I’m focusing on tech death because, quite frankly, it’s a genre of metal to which I’ve always pompously turned up my nose. I wanted this show to be a challenge for me and a source of undiscovered treasures for my listeners. I can’t think of any way to do that without getting my hands dirty.
So here we are. After a month of digging through Bandcamp and mining suggestions from some tech death gurus over at Toilet ov Hell (A blog I write for semi-regularly), I came up with a surprising surplus of fantastic artists to represent the genre. If, like me, you’ve avoided tech death in the past because of some unfortunate first impressions, I hope you take a few minutes out of your day to listen to what I’ve unearthed here and open your mind to new experiences. I know I came away from this podcast with a great appreciation for the genre, and a whole lot of new music to explore.
