Fifty is a nice big round number so let's do something big, shall we? How about Dan Weyandt's first podcast?
Dan, Jeff Gretz and Scott Mellinger of Zao are laying out the entire new album "The Well Intentioned Virus" track by track. This chapter will cover the first five tracks. Seth W joins me to let you all in on a contest give away that ATSG, Skull Toaster (and even MetalBandCampGiftClub) will be collaborating on. Listen to the rules and listen closely to the podcast. The answer is in here.
Chapter 50 Music: all Zao from the upcoming album The Well Intentioned Virus
1) "Weeping Vessel" (Working Title: "Leviathan") Dan's wife miscarriage and Jeff hears Dan's perspective for the first time.
2) "A Well Intentioned Virus" (Working Title: "Devil") Zao had difficulty in tracking this song. Lots of perspective.
3) "Broken Pact Blues" (Working Title: "Fire") Touching story about Dan's brother Matt...and Scott's dog...and Anthrax lyrics...and Scott's dog again...
4) "Jinba Ittai" (Working Title: "Flesh") The rider and the horse become one. Mortality. Jon Bunch. This gets heavy.
5) "Apocalypse" Scott tells us a bit of how the guitar led to the lyrics. We then somehow get into the Paris shootings and the tragic murder of Dimebag Darrell.
