Podcast: A Discussion About Emmure and Cancel Culture
if you've been part of the scene over the last decade-and-a-half, you've most likely heard of Emmure. The deathcore-leaning metalcore group have made numerous headlines over the years for offensive lyrics and merchandise, with frontman Frankie Palmeri using shock value to leverage attention toward his music.
