Heavy Metal Historian looks at Horror Folklore


The Heavy Metal Historian is a podcast exploring the history of the metal genre. Hosted by Greg Davies, the project aims at “giving you a snippet of tales from years gone by in the world of Metal, one episode at a time”. 

The latest two episodes in their series have focused on the relationship between metal and horror folklore, in particular vampire and werewolf mythology. The first explores the origins of vampire myths, prominent vampire fiction, and stories told through music featuring these characters. A similar approach was applied to the podcast’s werewolf special. Each episode also features a recommended listening playlist and related reading for those of you who want to brush up on your metal knowledge.
