This week, amidst widespread protests against police brutality and the murder of George Floyd, the heavy-metal world came together to say: Black Lives Matter. Whether it was putting together raffles, donating Bandcamp money to BLM organizations all over the country, or Jesus Piece raising $35,000 with a single t-shirt (!!!!!), the positivity we know and love in the metal world came out in full force. This week on Last Words, the hosts are joined by special guest Aaron Rieseberg of Yob and Living Gate to highlight the ways metal is helping the world become a better place, and also list a ton of Black artists in metal you should listen to.
