Fist Of Satan 666 Podcast – Episode 006 – Calgary Metal

Calgary, while a fairly sparsely populated when compared to parts of Europe and Asia, boasts a very robust metal scene.

While our strengths are firmly rooted in the technical death metal genre Calgary has produced some top notch bands in pretty much every metal sub-genre.

Calgary is a prime example of quality of quantity.

Those familiar with the Calgary metal scene will surely be asking “Where’s Operation Winter Mist?” and “How could you leave out Divinity?”.

While researching for this podcast I was pretty overwhelmed by how many amazing bands are in Calgary. I’ve tried to balance with the roots of our scene, the heavy weights and some of the new blood. Had I not made the hard choices this would easily have been a five hour podcast.
