idobi Howl will take an intellectual approach to metal and hardcore with Metal DNA, the latest addition to Howl’s growing lineup of original programming.
Music blogger and podcast host Shawn Kupfer will analyze a new band every week, deconstructing their sound by playing music which influenced that band and tracking his subject’sÂ impact on other bands. In the debut of Metal DNA, Kupfer breaks down Slipknot, linking them to Slayer, White Zombie and more surprising influences like Beastie Boys.
Metal DNA airs Saturday nights at 8pm ET on idobi Howl. Fans can stream Howl at ido.bi/howl or on mobile devices with the TuneIn app.
