Rhapsody Metal Madness!
We love our metal here at Rhapsody, from the writers (including beloved metal scribes Chuck Eddy and Mike McGuirk) to the engineers (who all seem to be obsessed with Iron Maiden). So naturally we decided to concoct an epic (you might even say extreme) week-long tribute to the loudest, heaviest, scariest stuff out there, loaded with righteous playlists, revealing personal essays, electrifying radio stations and maybe a celebrity surprise or two. Here we'll touch on everything from Viking metal to hair bands, from teenage angst to adult insanity, from the Deep South to Norway, from Motörhead to Napalm Death. We'll be adding stuff all week, so check back often. Enjoy, and by all means, keep it brutal.
