Diversion Podcasts has launched Backstaged: The Devil in Metal. Hosted by author and music journalist, Jon Wiederhorn, this 12-episode podcast takes listeners through the history and culture of heavy metal.
The podcast explores elements of darkness and extremism in the music and, examines how a generation of rebellious rockers took the phrase “sex, drugs and rock n’ roll” to an entirely new level.
For the past 30 years, Jon Wiederhorn has interviewed the biggest names in metal, and now, for the first time, listeners will be able to hear exclusive, never-before-heard audio from members of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Metallica, Dio, Pantera, Slayer, Lamb of God, Anthrax, Motley Crue, KISS, Megadeath, Slipknot, and many more as they share outrageous, uncensored and sometimes unholy experiences from their lives in metal.
“I couldn’t be more excited about launching The Devil In Metal,” Wiederhorn says. “Everyone I’ve interviewed has been amazingly honest and revealing and there are so many great stories metal fans will love. “As the saying goes, the show exposes the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in the way it offers fans a rare backstage view of the high and lows of metal legends and others that shaped this music over the past 50 years.”
