Episode 576: Exhume To Converse - interviews with Exhumed and Day Glo Abortions

October 11, 2019

Happy October! We love this time of year. The Halloween season seems to bring out the ghouls and goblins in us all. At the forefront of all this wickedness is our good bud Mr. Matt Harvey. His main plague bringer Exhumed is starting off this macabre month is fine fashion. Their latest platter of splatter "Horror" is still fresh meat on the new release rack so we we raked Matty Boy over the coals once again. We discussed the concept of the awesome new album and accompanying promo vid, his involvement in the up coming Necrophagia tribute, and Halloween at The Harvey's. We were also blessed with the opportunity to help celebrate the Bday of our old buddy Murray The Cretin of the legendary bunkers Day Glo Abortions. It was a house show/party that'll go down in history. Musically, we crank the new Exhumed, Expulsion, Pounder, Wraith, Hazzerd, Artillery, The Day Glos, and introduce doom rockers Woodhawk in our "Indie Spotlight" *whew* Horns!!

October 4, 2019

After our QDF trip and a slew of heavy metal home games, we were due for some hardcore. TX bashers Kublai Khan fit the bill perfectly. On tour now supporting their latest Rise Records album "Absolute", we caught up with KK vox MaTT Honeycutt. Mr. Honeycutt is a soft spoken man but don't let that fool you. On stage he rages! We discussed the new cod, old school vs. new school metal core, and being a hardcore band from Texas. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we throw the horns to Midnight for their new announcement and vote live to get one of our own on the cover of Maxim!

Episode 574: Drop Dead Gorgeous - interview with Dropdead

Episode 574: Drop Dead Gorgeous - interview with Dropdead

September 27, 2019

The Radioactive fallout from our trip to the Quebec Deathfest continues. Hardcore legends Dropdead played to a packed house and proved to be a highlight of the whole damn Fest. It was a golden opportunity to scratch another one of the old interview "bucket list". We caught up with vocalist Bob Otis. We discussed some new and upcoming releases, the Montreal van issue (seeing as we were in said city), and retaining the punk philosophy. An ideal place to see DD would be at a traditional hardcore house show. Travis is a good friend of the show and has been putting on shows in his basement for a number of years now. Always looking for a unique story idea relevant to the scene, we sat down with "Trav" before a recent gig in his basement. We went over the ins-and-outs and whys-and-wherefores of putting on these always awesome shows. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss our "rock n roll baseball schedule" (!) and crank some tunes from DD, Enforcer, Warbringer, Sortilege, Unholy Grave, and Chernobyl Wolves. Finally, we feature Montreal underground veterans Necrotic Mutation in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 573: Quebec Deathfest Post Game Show

September 20, 2019

This summer has proven to be the season of the festivals. We're home in one piece after travelling to the Quebec Deathfest. Two glorious days of brutality from artists ranging from the legendary to the undergroundiest of the underground. But it wasn't all metal madness and moshpits. We were on the clock as well to present to Quebec Deathfest Post Game Show. When enlisted the help of our good buddy "Ducky" Dustin Maruca with an audio log documenting both the good times and the trials and tribulations. As well, we had an impromptu chat with CDN Records head honcho Craig Newman and "The Growl" documentarian Cam Schwarz. Musically, we crank fest performers Cancer, Ghoul, Disgorge, Nuclear Assault, Morbid Saint, Deformatory, Holy Cost, and Embludgeonment. Counting down the days 'til next year. Horns!!

September 13, 2019

Canadian blackened doomsters Culted are a unique beast. Their brand spanking new album "Vespertina Synaxis: A Prayer For Union and Emptiness" is full lengther #3 and their Season Of Mist debut. But the local boys have never even been in the presence of their Swedish bandmate. Huh?? Mike Klaassen and Matt Friesen were on their way to a Sleep gig but took a detour to give us the 411 on all things Culted. We discussed their unique situation, the new album and deal, and what separates them from the black metal pack.In our "news, views. and Tunes", we say hello to Astro of The Winnipeg Roller derby League and give our 2cents on the Ozzy/post malone thing.

Episode 571: Deth Defining - interviews with Detherous and Widow’s Peak

September 6, 2019

The weekend of the Seance Metalfest was full of happiness, heaviness, and highlights. One of those highlights was the first live assault on our senses by the amazing Detherous. These Canadian bashers are on the road promoting their Redefining Darkness debut record. Their stop at the 'Fest was a good time to get to get familiar with this rising act. We took a moment out of the festivities to speak with vox/axeman Damon MacDonald. We discussed signing on with Redefining... and their relative quick accomplishments as an outfit. But we didn't stop there. Tour mates Widow's Peak were on hand affording us the opportunity to speak with guitarist Chris McCrimmon. Thoroughly impressing us earlier this year with their "Indie Spotlight" segment, we were eager to got he extra Metal mile for the band. Musically, we crank our guests, new tunes from Witch Vomit and Cliterati, and some classic death from Regurgitation!! Horns!!

Episode 570: Seance Metalfest Post Game Show

August 30, 2019

After months of anticipation, and program coverage right here on RAM, The Seance Metalfest is in the books. An amazing weekend was had by all. Great music and even better people added up to a shit ton of memories that will be forever embedded in our hearts and minds. But RAM's activity doesn't end once the sleep is caught up on and the hangovers are nursed. Welcome to the inaugural Seance Metalfest Post Game Show. Much like after our Coreen lived it up at the Maryland Deathfest, it's time to reflect and share some personal highlights of the Fest. First up, we had an entertaining chat with Canadian grinders Flash Out. With so much going on their camp it was an opportune time to reacquaint our listeners with them. As well we got into the faces of some of the party goers to share with us their thoughts on the shindig. Easily one of our most entertaining segments ever! Musically, we crank the SMF headliners Outre Tomb and Sunless. Plus some cool tunage from Wilt and Endless Chaos. Horns!!

Episode 569: Talkin’ Stuff

August 23, 2019

No "Creature Feature" = No problem. While we found ourselves in the position without a special guest this week, we didn't find ourselves in the position with nothing to say. The mean streets of Metaldom were busy with a number of events and happenings that had the scene abuzz. Along with our usual suspects -  um, I mean - segments, we addressed the "suspicious" Torn The Fuck Apart/walmart and Rob Zombie/over zealous fan incidents. As well, Radioactive Metal gets attacked by antifa!!! Well, sorta. Musically, we crank new tunage from Devourment, Cerebral Rot, Shock Narcotic, the aforementioned TTFA, and introduce trad-metallers Iron Kingdom in this week's "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 568: Crown Of Horns - interview with Black Crown Initiate

Episode 568: Crown Of Horns - interview with Black Crown Initiate

August 16, 2019

Black Crown Initiate are freakin' road warrior! We encountered "The Boys" a number of times over the past few years on one tour or another. Their most recent stop in town was their first headlining and their latest before their Century Media debut drops. So it was a good time to finally speak with them. We had a quick couple Lemmys with axe/vox Ash Thomas before we sat to talk BCI. We spoke of the new CM deal, we throw out our own ZZTop/Gillette challenge and share a laugh over a road story. Good times! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss the Ohio mass shooting/pornogrind issue and a very KISSish looking  farm animal. Musically, we crank some indie BCI, the new Gatecreeper, new NoMas, Terrorizer, Lady Beast. Inferi, Magurdergrind, and introduce Ottawa metallers TripleMurder in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 567: What We’re Tolkien About - interview with Numenorean

Episode 567: What We’re Tolkien About - interview with Numenorean

August 9, 2019

It's got to be the geography. Much like their Scandinavian counterparts, the Great White north seems to be  the perfect climate (literally and figuratively) for creating cool Black Metal. Case in point - Canadian (post) black metallers Numenorean. Now with their second Season Of Mist recording "Adore" under their belts, the outfit is ready to do some major damage. During the band's recent stop in town we sat down with not one, not two, but all six (!!) members. We discussed their rather geeky origins of their monicker, their ideas of modern Black Metal, and how local boys made good. Another Metal feel good story. As well we celebrate the 35th anniversary of the mighty "Ride The Lightning". An album that holds a particular place in our Metal Heart, we dissect and go over the whys and wherefores of this important record. Musically we crank the latest Numenorean plus cool stuff from Gaahl's Wyrd, Wormed, GAZM, and Phil Anselmo's new outfit En Minor. Horns!!
