Marshall Amplification has become the headline sponsor of the UK’s largest rock and metal podcast, ‘That’s Not Metal’.
Hosted by one of rock’s most respected voices, Terry ‘Beez’ Bezer, and former Metal Hammer Podcast host Stephen Hill, That’s Not Metal is a weekly podcast providing the latest news, album reviews, and opinion on the world of rock and metal music – delivered every Friday.
Formed just over a year ago, when the show debuted at #1 on the iTunes Music Podcast charts and #11 on the iTunes Podcast charts, That’s Not Metal has developed a loyal and ever growing fan base (currently over 20,000 listeners a week), and has helped to support the careers of emerging artists from the UK, USA and further afield – some of which have in turn joined the Marshall roster of artists, including Black Peaks, and Milk Teeth. The podcast’s That’s Not Metal Premium subscription service has also been a success, offering its members exclusive access to fortnightly specials; in-depth looks at all manner of topics from band retrospectives on acts like Metallica, Pantera and Nirvana, genres including Hardcore and Nu Metal, record labels such as Roadrunner Records and producers like Rick Rubin.
Marshall’s Social Media and Online Content Manager, Chris Robinson, says: ‘Identifying different types of media to interact and work with is incredibly important, what Beez and Steve have been able to do with the podcast is fantastic and we’re really excited to work with them on all sorts of projects and ideas. They share the same passion and ethos about music as we do, so it’s a very natural fit for us.’
