Welcome to this weeks episode of Heavy Metal History the Podcast!

This years content of the podcast see’s Dustin and Matt dissecting the year 1998. A year where you get a full scope of almost every genre thats been invented, Power Metal dominated the releases, Nu Metal is just on the horizon, while Death and Black Metal take a little bit of a back seat to how many bands/releases were put out. January of 1998 is a mixed bag of releases, the year starts off with German Power Metal band Edguy releasing their 2nd album and showing the growth of their sound within a year, an Indonesian band Kekal fuses Black Metal with their own unique sound of metal to create something very unique in its execution. Another Power Metal band from Denmark, Mercenary released their first album falling in line with a myriad of other artists that would unleash Power Metal into the world. Virgin Black released an EP that would show a hint of how massive the band would grow to be with their Funeral Doom sound they would become the epitome of. Angelcorpse fuses Thrash and Black Metal to make a decent but over all underwhelming album and Dark Order from Australia make the Thrash Metal genre their own with an Aussie infused twist.
