A new interview podcast and we are turning the tables! This is not a band, this is not a musician, this is one of the most renowned personalities in Metal journalism: Martin Popoff, co-founder of "Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles" and author of more than 20 Metal related books. TMO hooked up with the master to get behind the scenes...

Here's what the older podcasts were about (you can still listen to them, when you subscribe):

  • A new interview podcast is online, this time we got Helge Stang, vocalist of Bavarian Viking Metallers EQUILIBRIUM on the other line to get all the infos about their new album "Sagas", out on Nuclear Blast Records!

And it continues with the second part of our Heavy New Year, Part II of our first Podcast of the year and this one is bigger than ever, PRIMORDIAL, SEAR BLISS, ENDSTILLE, AYREON, GATES OF WINTER, EXIT STRATEGY and much, much more!

  • For the 37th time "The Metal Observer" is inviting you onto a journey through Metal and once more we have dug deep into the vaults of TMO, unearthing unknown treasures like FIELDS OF IARU, DYNAHEAD, or THE HOURGLASS as well as new material of greats such as SYMPHONY X, SLOUGH FEG or MANEGARM.
