Welcome to this weeks special episode of Heavy Metal History, holy hell we made it to 50 episodes!! And with this one, I had to make sure it was a special one and man did we score a hell of an interview. My guest this week is Matron Thorn, guitar player of the death metal band Ævangelist. We talked a myriad of topics, including grunge, the current heavy metal climate, how Matron writes his songs in terms of "inspiration" and whats next for Ævangelist. That and SO much more on this episode, we get deep, we get philosophical and we really have an excellent conversation. Our 50th episode couldn't have been better.
