As we prepare for Metallica’s new album “72 Seasons” and massive stadium tour around the world, we find ourselves wondering: why is it taking so long to crown the “Next Metallica”? Will a rising band in metal (or rock, for that matter) ever reach the globally massive success of a band like Metallica? Or will Metallica be the last heavy band to ever headline stadium tours and sell millions of records? 


That’s what Matt and Zach discuss in the latest episode of “Am I Missing Something?,” a podcast where we analyze popular or unpopular bands, albums, songs or music trends in an attempt to figure out what we seem to be “missing.” The goal isn’t to ridicule, but rather to gain a better understanding of what a majority of fans see or don’t see in something that Matt and Zach simply can’t wrap their heads around.
