Can anyone recommend any metal podcasts that are in equal doses good music + interviews + news + commentary?

Thanks!

Requiem Metal Podcast might be of interest to you. They do (did?) a free weekly hour long show profiling a single band playing songs from their entire catalog and in between their two guests will discuss and attempt to contextualize the group sometimes having guests with a pretty impressive inside knowledge (such as their two-part episode in Voivod.) They've got a pretty hefty back catalog as well

My favorite is Vinland Radio! Its a metal podcast based out of Canada and features all the above that your looking for, and features new episodes everyweek! http://vinlandradio.podomatic.com/

Vinland Radio it is! Will try that out.

Requiem Metal doesn't seem to be putting out episodes as regularly as I would want, unfortunately. But their back catalog looks interesting.

I'm trying out Vinland Radio and Metal Injection to see if they're up my alley.

I found something called Metal Breakfast Radio described as:

A weekly dose of Metal scrutiny, brought to you by David Ingram (ex-Bolt Thrower/Benediction) and Donovan Spenceley (ex-Downlord/Nepenthe).

Seems interesting. Also updated regularly every week.

Requiem is a good podcast but they are not exactly metal historians, which is OK since they don't come across claiming to be such. Some episodes are quite entertaining some are weak.

Certainly not but they're fairly all encompassing in their coverage and serve to give a good broad overview of the group in a relatively short time.

Wouldn't advice you to check out Metal Injection because it'll be a waste of your time. It's hardly informative if that's what you're looking for. I really don't follow podcasts but you could check out - http://hellcast.hellsheadbangers.com/

blah yeah I unsubscribed form Metal Injection. So much senseless talk.

Currently maintaining subscriptions to Vinland Radio, Black Night Meditations (wish they had playlist listings though), Focus on Metal (but considering unsubscribing) & Metal Breakfast Radio.

Will try out that Hellcast podcast, thanks.

Pity you had to find it out the hard way :) Though they do have some interviews towards the end but it's mostly very mainstream music like Gwar, Hatebreed, Anselmo etc. Zilch metal news content if you're looking for such...but they proclaim themselves to be that way, dare I say, "different". Why don't you search youtube or soundcloud or mixcloud for those keywords...bound to be tons of them.
