Ben and John return from hiatus to discuss Mondo Drag's third studio album: 2016's The Occultation of Light.  Blending prog, Kraut rock, psych and proto metal into a synth and slide guitar heavy sound all its own, Occultation cemented Mondo Drag's place as a leader in the world of underground heavy rock.

In Part 1 of their discussion, Ben and John analyze the band's sound, instrumentation, and live show as well as the Key Moment's from the album's first track, Initiation.  Part 2, available April 19 at https://greatestthingpodcast.com and all major podcast platforms will continue the dissection of the album's Key Moments.  

The Greatest Thing You've Never Heard is a like a book club for your next favorite record.  Each episode is an in-depth examination of a single album that's worthy of greater recognition.  Our co-hosts, Ben and John, spend a full episode discussing an album and then often use a follow-up episode to interview the band that recorded it.
