On this episode of The Greatest Thing You've Never Heard, John and Ben tackle the show's 49th album: Slough Feg's 2009 shred-heavy opus, Ape Uprising! Released on Cruz Del Sur with vinyl from Iron Kodex, Ape Uprising! basks in traditional metal glory while never taking itself so seriously that forgets to entertain. By grounding itself with a mindset that's as much punk as it is metal, Ape Uprising! puts songwriting first and makes its fretboard wizardry all the more memorable as a result.
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.
