The MetalSucks Podcast

by

The official podcast of MetalSucks, Petar Spajic, Brandon Hahn and Jozalyn Sharp. One featured interview each week with a prominent metal musician, and discussion of the latest headlines in metal news. New episodes every Monday morning.

Brett Campbell of Pallbearer is our guest this week! We discuss how the songwriting process on the band’s new album, Forgotten Days, differed from that on past albums, how the band formulated the new songs to resonate live, how the lyrics have a direct tie to the band’s debut, Sorrow and Extinction, and why they worked with an outside producer this time. Brett also tells us how the extended break brought on by the pandemic allowed the band members time to reflect on their lives, and shares a sad personal experience that has influenced him creatively.

Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn discuss Chino Moreno’s recent comment that folks shouldn’t be ashamed of liking nu-metal, Brandon’s drunk trip to Knott’s Berry Farm, and how Pete got away from a guard dog when he broke into a boat yard as a kid.

Songs: Pallbearer – “The Quicksand of Existing” and “Rite of Passage,” Devildriver – “Nest of Vipers”
