The Requiem Metal Podcast can be a bit patchy, and tends towards the black/death metal end of things a bit much for my tastes, but this week's edition is a bit of a corker.

They do episodes themed around a band, or a particular aspect of a band's output - I recommend listening to their Monster Magnet, Bruce Dickinson solo, and Alice in Chains editions. The latest edition is The History of the World According to Iron Maiden Part 1 (Stone Age to c.1300CE), and because one of the hosts is a history teacher there's some interesting commentary between tracks. To give you a flavour of the kind of commentary you're getting, they explain the Gordian knot as "Alexander the Great's Kobayishi Maru scenario" ;) They don't take themselves too seriously, they occasionally segue off on tangents, and the music is (obviously) good. It's well worth a listen, and I'm looking forward to next week's slice of world history Maiden style.
