Show Description

Ever wonder how your favorite band got their sound? Each week, host Shawn Kupfer delves into the history and influences behind some of metal and hardcore’s biggest (and sometimes most obscure) bands.

Kupfer breaks down bands like Slipknot, linking them to Slayer, White Zombie and more surprising influences like Beastie Boys. Metal DNA is the intellectual approach to metal and hardcore.
