  1. Hi, can I request an interview with Jens Bogren, please?
    I understand EP29 has had Mr Bogren to confess, but… I need to know how on earth he made Sepultura’s latest album to sound so freaking fresh, groovy, and downright interesting (I did not expect this from Sepultura). The more I listen to Machine Messiah the more I love it and I want to understand how Jens helped a band (sorry, the legend, The Band) achieve a fathomless mastery in heaviness, catchiness, tightness, etc. This album is the reason for me to fall in love in Sepultura’s music again.
    PS, I am enjoying the URM podcast like no one other, please keep up the good work!
