Vietnam’s Metal Underground Gets a New Podcast – Arbitrary Night – Ep. 1 Up Now

Always cool to support any initiative from out here in Asia whose purpose is to support and celebrate their community. Check out this brand new podcast straight outta Vietnam called ‘Arbitrary Night’ (it’s in English! Woohoo!).

The mastermind behind the podcast, Morbid, is the frontman/guitarist of Vietnamese black metal band Leukotomy. He states that the band is “experimental and somewhat avant-garde but it’s still pretty much a black metal band”. Vietnamese label House of Ygra is about release the band’s debut album which is complete meaning the band can start hitting stages again. “We’ve just started playing live again after a break focusing on the recording of the album and having gone through several lineup changes. The band is still predominantly just me and another dude named Dawn who plays bass and also contributes to the songwriting”.

In regards to the newly launched podcast:

“The Arbitrary Night podcast is inspired by several metal podcasts but most notably the series named Coven hosted by Imperial Cult by Elcrost who is also the man behind House of Ygra. I wanted to create a podcast series to talk to metal artists about themselves and their music, their tastes, and their influences. To me, this is a chance to promote their projects and make an effort for the longevity of the metal scene. I’m currently focusing on our local scene, but who knows, I might expand this in the future. This first episode is just a baby step, there’s a lot to look up to in the future. In this first episode, I talk with Liam W and Satoshi Fukuda from Hanoi’s melodic death metal band Rêvasseur about their plans after their debut EP, as well as their influences, writing process, their thoughts on our local scene, their top metal album picks and more.” is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world.
