Toilet Radio talks shop with Vince of MetalSucks

Share:

On this electrifying episode of Toilet Radio ya boys chat up Vince Neilstein, the esteemed founder of MetalSucks and Blast Beat Network. Join us as we learn about the harrowing process of turning snarky blogging into a full-time job, selling out, what it’s like to have a bunch of assholes start a blog from the comments of your site, and the Destroyer 666 incident. We laughed, we learned, we loved. This is a can’t-miss episode, folks.

Music featured in this program:
Myrone – “Zadok” from Drift Stage Vol. 1 (Bandcamp)

    VINCE NEILSTEIN RIDES A HOVEROUND

    • Sid Vicious Promos

      No, youre thinking of Axl.

      • Howard Dean

        Nah, I’m right. Axl rides a zucchini.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    I’m listening solely out of sheer morbid curiosity.

    • That’s the best way to listen to any of our shows imo

      • Elegant Gazing Globe

        Listening today with rabid enthusiasm!

  • RustyShackleford

    Holy FUCK that opening Myrone song is so much fun. Downloading ASAP. Stoked to listen to the rest of the podcast too. Yup.

  • SupremeKrieg

    Fvckin Metal Sucks sucks.

  • Lenny, tell Mr. Burns I’ve gone home to listen to the podcast!

    • Wet W’s Whistle

      I was thinking about Homer’s picture of Lenny just last night. For some reason, I just love the fact that he has a picture of Lenny at his desk.

        And it’s autographed.

        Me too. During its heyday, the writers on that show were absolute geniuses. There are so many gags where it’s hilarious when you watch it, but you think “How would that have seemed funny before it’s actually been written, scripted and animated?”

        Examples:

        1) Scorpio trying to convince Homer not to resign while his stronghold’s being raided by the Feds. “We’ll go bowling!” (Face lit up by explosion).

        2) Skinner trying on his old prisoner-of-war helmet from ‘Nam he found at the swap meet. “Small world, huh?” asks the storeholder. (Replies in muffled voice due to helmet) “Y’know, it is…it really, really is.”

        If these don’t seem funny when you read them back, then that’s exactly my point. When I watch them I can’t stop laughing.

    In fitting with Alien: Covenant, this is like the humans (Metalsucks) catching up with what David (Toilet) has been doing all these years.

  • HI VINCE!

  • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

    I WANT TO DO SE.X WITH HIM !!!! (lol im a men)

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        I sure don’t. They hate a lot of things I like.

        • SupremeKrieg

          And like a lot of things I fvckin hate. False ones.

    • SupremeKrieg

      Probably fvckin has.

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        I would be surprised if we didnt sell out at some point.

        • I have been actively trying to sell out for three years.

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            Well at least you’re making a good blog and you have a good community. Not many sites have that.

    • Maik Beninton™

      The toilet will sell out at any given opportunity.

      • Wet W’s Whistle

        You bet your sweet bippy we will. I want money.

        • SupremeKrieg

          Money is for the false.

          • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

            All these years I wasted, when all I had to do for money was to throw away my Kvlt Cred. Damn.

          • SupremeKrieg

            The fvck is kvlt cred?

          • Pagliacci is Kvlt

            It’s a line of credit I offer, but only to Finns. Because they’re imaginary.

          • SupremeKrieg

            Finns are fvckin warriors.

        • Will it come with chixxx?

      • Sid Vicious Promos

        I don’t think any of you realized but I was joking.

        • Maik Beninton™

          But I’m serious boi, this is all about money and businesses.

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            I have my own plans to make a YouTube channel with a few friends. I’m actively against selling out though because I want to do it for fun.

        • I treat each of your comments as a thing that could either be a joke or a serious.

          • Sid Vicious Promos

            Exactly how everyone should approach my commenting.

      • Count_Breznak

        My guess is taco day.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    what I’m taking out of this is don’t start a band, you’ll be poor forever, BUT! Start a metal blog and bathe in that sweet glorious blog cash

    • Jack Bauer

      Everyone knows joe is stupid rich and just acts like he isnt

      • Pagliacci is Kvlt

        Shhh, weren’t not supposed to talk about the Bilderberg fortune.

    • Pagliacci is Kvlt

      At around 27:00 you can hear all that sweet cash fall out of his pocket and hit the floor.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      You were writer for a day at MS once, didn’t you?

      • HessianHunter

        Yeah, I won their contest to write for a day three years back! It was a surreal experience and directly led to me writing for this site.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    hahaha cosplay in the woods with guns hahahaha

  • Óðinn

    Say what you will about MetalSucks, but these guys give racist troglodytes a place to go and whack their hate-boners on a daily basis. In turn, these troglodytes give Vince and Axl the internet clicks they need to pay their mortgages.

    • GoatForest

      Yep. Here may be a toilet, but that place is a septic tank.

    • Guppusmaximus

      Because NO ONE EVER started a band to just play music. I’m not certain why all these fucking bloggers think there was a magical time in recording history where anyone who started a band automatically made money hand-over-fist.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      I stopped reading MS a while ago, but I kind of don’t remember it that way. I remember MS writing a bunch of opinionated and ill-informed crap and readers calling them out on their bullshit. I don’t remember many actual racists showing up to harass the writers.

      • GoatForest

        Oh, they are definitely running around there…

      • Óðinn

        Check again. They’re there. If there’s one thing I’m sure of, it’s that the MetalSucks comments section is rife with actual racists.

  • Ya’ll gotta fix your mic levels, damn near blew my ear drums out when it switched back from Vince

    • Time stamp? I applied an even level

      • Óðinn

        At one point it was a bit jarring, yes. Sorry Joe, I didn’t make note of the timecode. If I listen again, I’ll write it down.

      • Seemed to get better around the 25min mark.

      • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

        At 14:52, your voice comes in kinda loud

        • Max

          23:40-ish.

      • Max

        An even level via peak limiter? That won’t work, dude. And waveforms can be deceiving (since they don’t actually depict loudness). It’s best to have a spot listen after editing. (Apologies for potentially patronizing advice.)

        • I apply a peak limiter and listen through every episode to manually take down especially loud bits. I wonder if I’m not capable of hearing some of this on my headphones. Or my hearing is just trash.

          • Max

            Your hearing isn’t trash.

            Actually, maybe the answer is in your use of headphones. I was listening on open-air speakers, so I had to have it turned up quite loud to hear the quiet parts. That’s when the loud parts became quite apparently loud.

            Whereas if you’re on headphones, you’re getting a lot more detail during the soft parts, which means you don’t have to turn the volume up so much; so the loud parts aren’t as assaulting.

            So maybe the answer is to listen through every episode on open-air speakers and see how that goes. (If you haven’t already, of course.)

          • Yep, I listen with noise cancelling headphones. Good suggestion.

  • Fun episode!

    GL

  • Maik Beninton™

    That was good.
    I wanna see Axl on the podcast now, but I think it’s better to wait a few months otherwise people will think we’re getting too friendly and find out our selling out plans.

    • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

      I’d prefer to see someone with an informed and interesting opinion about things, rather than Axl

  • GrungierNine0

    What. WHAT. WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?

    Have we come to the zero-point? Have we come full circle? No, probably not. Good episode, though.

    • THE SINGULARITY IS NOW

      • GrungierNine0

        OHHH GOD IT’S HAAAAAPPENING

  • Óðinn

    Great episode, Joe and 365! Thank-you very much!

  • Pagliacci is Kvlt

    Vince has a mirrored ceiling in his bathroom. Swank.

  • Waynecro

    Awesome show, dudes–especially the positive comments about B*******l.

  • This was a fantastic cast, bruhs. Great job!

  • GoatForest

    By the way, Warslut’s a bitch.

    • Óðinn

      True. A short bitch too.

  • Max

    I still visit Metalsucks. I actually do quite like Vince’s writing style. I’m often compelled to click on a song link by virtue of the way he’s described it.

    And Vince – don’t EVER stop Synthwave Sunday.

    • i second all that.

    • gacharicmeatspin

      Isn’t it faster to just click on the link and see if you like it instead of reading his shit?

      • Max

        Sometimes you just need a bit of persuasion.

  • killer podcast! Vince sounds like one cool dudebro.

  • gacharicmeatspin

    I used to be an As I Lay Dying fan in 2007, when Lambesis was scrawny.
