Unleashing the Beast: Conan O’Brien Delivers Metalcore Madness with New Song

Welcome to Music Nation 365, your go-to source for all things music-related! Today, we bring you an exciting and unexpected collaboration between former late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien and Anthony Giacalone, the screaming vocalist of Canadian metalcore band Among The Rest.

In the latest episode of Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend, released on May 9, Conan and Anthony Giacalone decided to improvise a metalcore song together. The impromptu ‘jam’ session began with O’Brien asking Giacalone to showcase his vocals, to which the vocalist responded by requesting a “hard breakdown” for a rhythm track.

What followed was a unique acapella metalcore performance, with O’Brien mouth-drumming along as Giacalone unleashed his intense screams. Despite technical difficulties that hindered O’Brien from hearing Giacalone’s vocals clearly during their Zoom call, the mix came through perfectly for podcast listeners.

“It sounded like you swallowed a crouton,” O’Brien humorously remarked to Giacalone. He then joked about Zoom discriminating against people in metalcore bands, adding a light-hearted touch to the collaboration.

Co-host Sona Movsesian even suggested that O’Brien would fit right in a metalcore band, to which the host humorously agreed, claiming to have a knack for screaming and a dynamic stage presence. He quipped, “And I do think that Satan resides within me,” showcasing his comedic flair.

Conan O’Brien has long been a supporter of heavy metal music, featuring bands like Slipknot, Linkin Park, and At The Drive-In as musical guests during his time on Late Night. His passion for the genre was further highlighted when he interviewed Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich on his podcast in April 2023.

Metal Hammer once published an op-ed titled “Why Conan O’Brien is metal’s greatest unsung champion”, praising his genuine affinity for heavy music and his unwavering support for the metal community. Journalist Joe Daly highlighted Conan’s actions as a true testament to his love for metal music.

It’s worth noting that Among The Rest, the Canadian metalcore band led by Anthony Giacalone, released their EP titled ‘Morté’ in 2021, showcasing their talent and passion for the metalcore genre.

Conan O’Brien’s recent collaboration with Among The Rest on his podcast serves as a delightful treat for metal and comedy fans alike, blending humor with the raw energy of metalcore music. This unexpected partnership highlights the universal appeal of music in bringing people together, regardless of their backgrounds or genres of preference.
