Join us for the live stream of LOCK HORNS, a weekly live streamed show debating the various genres of Banger’s Metal Family Tree. Episode 8: Melodic Death Metal features host Sam Dunn and guest co-host Morgan Rider of Vesperia.

We’ll be reading your comments in real time throughout the show but you can start the debate now in the chat: Who are the essential Melodic Death Metal bands that belong on this new branch of the tree? Which bands from Swedish Extreme Metal Bands need to get on there too? And don’t forget to tell us the newest acts in the evolution of this genre. Ready? Fight!
