Where do I begin? It’s been a long time since I’ve been interested in what music journalists and the like have had to say.. until I heard these guys! They’re not slapping themselves on the back for knowing more than other people, they’re not namedropping and showing off - they’re just a set of rock fans, talking about rock and showing that you don’t always have to agree with the people around you when it comes to what you enjoy!
Join the world's biggest weekly rock and metal podcast, delivering you the latest news, cutting edge opinions, honest reviews and laughs from the US and the UK with Beez, Perran Hyles and Ryan De Freitas.
The best source of new music recommendations every week. Interesting, insightful, intelligent and above all, funny. 🤘🤘🤘🤘🤘
TNM is THE rock/metal podcast. Top 20 albums of the year is a proper Christmas tradition
I’ve been listening since day one! Love the new blood especially Ryan’s recommendations as I am also sad boi. #Emo4lyf
Beez has such an enthusiasm that is infectious.
Perran, you’re really in-depth and what you say is spot on but I can’t relate, I always end up feeling how imagine Ryan does.
If your looking for reviews and news from rock and metal covering new releases, festival news, and looks back on old albums this is the place. It covers everything from extreme Metal, emo, and pop- punk.
This podcast helped me discover Deftones, Type O Negative, Tool and tonnes of bands who are now may favourites. Ryan, Perran and Beez's chat is hilarious and empassioned, could not recommend this show more.
Quality reviews from Beez, Ryan and Perran week in week out. Great insights on the industry and hilarity from all 3.
Brilliant discussion, filled with humour, knowledge and debate. I write this a week away from the end of year pod which is a total highlight each 12 months. Subscribe now you fools!
I’ve been listening to That’s Not Metal since its beginning and it simply continues to get better.
Beez and Stephen are fantastic hosts and their in-depth discussions about music are so full of passion and energy, it’s incredibly enjoyable to listen to.
If you’re a music fan in general, you need to check this podcast out!
I’ve been subscribing/listening to this podcast for roughly 18 months now…and just realised I’ve never left a review. For years my music consumption had been stagnating…I rarely found new albums I liked, went to fewer and fewer gigs (and rarely any ‘new’ gigs) and found myself basically reliving the music of my teens/early 20s in lieu of anything else. This podcast opened my ears to loads of new bands that I now consider to be some of my favourite in the world. Bands like Creeper, Marmozets, Milk Teeth, Moose Blood, Neck Deep, The Interrupters, Zeal & Ardor and Power Trip. Well worth listening to these guys and their recommendations.
Quality show. ive found so many good bands from listening to this! and learned to appreciate some that i didnt think i would like. well funny too.
I found this podcast a year ago and i now couldn’t manage without it. Steve and Beez are hilarious, their content is spot on, and I’d love to meet “Bonjour-the cat”.
Podcast has really opened up my ears to listen to music differently and learn more about current music rather than sticking on Pantera 24/7 🤘🏼
This podcast is the greatest music magazine medium I have ever encountered. They have introduced me to so many great bands.
They are brutally honest about everything, very funny and they also have no agenda as nobody is telling them what to say about music.
Thoroughly recommended, big thanks to Hill and Beez!
The guys who made the Metal Hammer pod the best back in the day (not together to be fair) have been back doing it for a few years now and they are unstoppable. Unrivalled knowledge of rock and metal and tons of passion for their music show here with some great laugh out loud moments
Top lads, top bantz, top tips, tip top.
TNM is truly an institution. Put down your Star Bars, cast aside your bullet belts and join Hill and Beez putting the world to rights on everything rock, metal, alternative and all places inbetween.
You'll laugh, cry, shout and possibly even follow through!
Don't say I didn't warn you.
member when rock journalists said that that Simple Plan song sounds like Sebastian the crab...That’s Not Metal members...
Fantastic stuff... these lads have a great knowledge of music and are also a very funny duo.Enjoy
That's Not Metal is the best music podcast out there for me, always honest in their reviews on music 🤘🏻
Cracking laughs, brilliant reviews and I've found so many new bands and music thanks to this podcast
A great podcast, likeable, relatable and knowledgeable hosts. I’ve discovered loads of great bands from listening in just a short time. Love it. Definitely worth subscribing.
Hill & Beez bring informed and interesting reviews and points of view every week. Often truly hilarious, this podcast is a must.
The best music podcast on the internet. Simple as.
I've been listening to rock radio and reviews shows for over 30 years and not since the heydays of John Peel in the late 70's and 80's has a show had such impact on the music on my shelves. Mainly thanks to Hill and Beez I'm more excited my music now than I ever have been. I would however offer the warning that listening to this show regularly is going to cost you a fortune, especially if you buy everything on vinyl like I've been doing. Support this show. Its changing the face of music.
Each week Hill and Beez provide excellent commentary on the week’s metal news as well as reviewing the latest albums and gigs from the world of rock and metal.
What I also love is that they constantly introduce new and upcoming bands to make sure they are heard and give them a platform.
That’s Not Metal has introduced me to so many new bands, is always entertaining and there is never a dull moment!
Basically if you like rock and metal and you haven't subscribed what are you doing with your life
If you are looking for the best music in Rock & Metal (and all its sub-genres) look no further!!!
With excellent and comedic banter from ‘Hill & Beez’ there take on music has become my gospel.
Obviously if you buy your music from Tesco’s shelves (ie stereophonic) you will find the music from this podcast far beyond your intellectual status. You will probably assume (wrongly) it’s just noise!
If you do like rock & metal, and like the podcast then things get even better!!!
You can subscribe to That’s Not Metal on the website and get a plethora of even better, more in-depth, top draw podcasts!
Funny, informative, passionate and unbiased. Best music pod out there. Keep up the good work!
The only MUST LISTEN TO EVERY WEEK podcast I subscribe to. Given me so much joy and signposted me to some truely wonderful music I don't think I would have found elsewhere.
Their enthusiasm picks me up everyweek and makes me excited about what new music I am going to hear at the weekend. A perfect podcast.
Hill and Beez aren't just hilarious and entertaining, but are extremely well educated on music in general. They also aren't scared to speak the truth which is amazing!
Great lads as well! Keep it up!
Absolutely one of the best podcasts going.
Introduced me to loads of great bands.
Its great to have a Metal/Rock Podcast that isnt rubbish and sucking up all the time. Not many of my friends 'get' Metal etc, but this feels like I am chatting with mates about metal!! Thanks Guys! Don't always agree with them, but isnt that a good thing! Who agrees all the time!? If only the world of metal could do the same and be a little more tolerant.....
Most knowledgable people in the game. Great banter and a sense of humour. So good.
Amazing each time. 🤘🏼🤘🏼🤘🏼
Great, great, great! Honest opinions from two proper music journalists with great knowledge. Hilarious laughs. No industry pandering, genuine chat!
I've been following these guys for a while now and wouldn't really listen to any other podcast.
Started listening to this on the back of a recommendation from a bunch of friends on Twitter, never looked back
I discovered TNM back in December subscribed on everything listened to over 100 hours of premium podcasts in 2 weeks became totally obsessed now I run the TNM addict fan page on instagram and twitter! You will get so much out of this podcast! Honest opinions, new music and great interviews/specials and radio playlists! You WILL NOT be disappointed!!! Subscribe NOW!
So much here for rock fans, whether you only listen to the regular Friday shows or become a premium member. The £17 I spend annually on TNM premium is truly the best money I spend on myself. I'm also buying more records and tickets than ever which is great for the scene as a whole. Can't wait to see what the future holds for this podcast!
The best place to get everything you need to know about new music in the rock/metal world. Has turned me on to bands I would never had came into contact with otherwise, and has reignited a passion for heavy music that had waned due to only being exposed to what passes as "metal" in the mainstream. 5 stars isn't enough to do this justice.

TNM is the best and most honest rock music podcast available. Terry and Steve aren't afraid to give you an honest opinion on music whether it comes from small independent bands or major label giants. You'll hear opinions you won't hear anywhere else in rock journalism, delivered with passion and humour. Absolutely vital listening to anyone that's passionate about rock music.
I've listened to TNM since the start and can say with absolute confidence Hill and Beez are the most genuine, knowledgeable and hardworking guys in music media. I stopped my subscription to Kerrang becuase of the podcast and listen and take on everything the guys record. If you care about music like I do (they do) then this is essential. Long live Thats Not Metal.
I adore this podcast, it's changed the way I listen to music, it's introduced me to some of my now favourite bands, this podcast is not only hilarious but it speaks the truth and it's essential for alternative music lovers
I'm currently travelling around the world so I'm on a ton of public transport, these podcasts have got me through it so far. Super band recommendations, laughs and all round redness! Have a listen!
As dramatic as it might sound, this podcast has completely changed (read improved) not only what I listen too, but the way I listen to music.
I've discovered so many new bands because of it and it's also made me feel accepted and that my opinions aren't as weird as I may think.
I've listened to everyone of their podcasts and most of their specials (there is only so many hours in a day!). I've taken it with me on holiday and on tour, definitely give it a try.
This Podcast is by far the most amazing Podcast on the whole Interwebs. Brilliantly enunciated, hugely entertaining and awesomely funny. They still haven't even mentioned the new Wormrot album yet or don't talk enough about Symposium but i'll let them off lolz
