Our guest for The MetalSucks Podcast is none other than Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation! During our chat, we discuss the band’s latest album Bleed Out, as well as their decision to release a majority of it in a single format, starting their own label, and some of the roles they’re taking on by releasing the album independently.
Sharon also shares details about the time she met Peter Steele of Type O Negative, what it was like releasing the NSFW video for the track “Ritual,” Iron Maiden legend Steve Harris watching the band nightly, why they release instrumental versions of their tracks, and the importance of investing culture in our society.
During the news section, Petar and Jozalyn discuss Sharon Osbourne blaming the end of Ozzfest on ‘greedy managers,’ Rage Against The Machine officially getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Metallica taking on bootleg merch vendors, and the tragedy that occurred during this year’s Headbangers Boat Cruise.
