The Deep Dive: Metallica’s New Independent Label [LISTEN]
The Deep Dive is a new mini-podcast from The Upward Spiral. We've shortened our News segment in the regular podcast to take 10 – 15 minutes and "dive deep", analyzing a single news item from all different angles. In this installment, we dive into the news of Metallica's new label Blackened Recordings, and the fact that all their masters reverted back to the band from WMG. What does it mean for the future of the band – and the future of major labels, for that matter? Listen to us hash it out in this short, free-wheeling discussion.
The Upward Spiral is a podcast about the new music industry featuring Kyle Bylin (Live Nation Labs), music industry consultant Jason Spitz (Former Director of Marketing at Topspin), and Hypebot's Hisham Dahud (also of Fame House). Along with special guests, the group discusses current events and issues that face artists & music professionals.
