In our "News, Views and Tunes", we talk the new Megadeth track and our RSD Part Deux haul. Musically, we crank some new and used from Day Glos, Primitive Man, Mortiferum, Sacramentum, Overdose, Citizen Rage, and introduce Colorado metalled Buried Realm in our "Indie Spotlight".

It almost feels like Halloween in June around here. You can't help but feel that way in the prescence of Micheal Hill, he of Tombs fame.

This week's interview has been long time coming. Abysmal Dawn axe/vox Charles Elliot has been an ally and asset to this show for a number of years now.

Episode 702: Drink ’til Midnight, Pistol Dawn

Episode 702: Drink ’til Midnight, Pistol Dawn

June 9, 2022

Over the years, the legendary Sex Pistols have become a polarizing topic. The Pistols are Punk rock trailblazers. But the outfit have had their sheer of critiques over being a marketing ploy to sell the latest "punk" fashion. As well, vocalist Johnny Rotten has come under fire for betraying his punk ethics in his later life. Regardless of the yays or nays, it cannot be denied that the Pistols story was one hell of a ride. The FX channel recently were brave enough to tackle the subject in a six part mini series. So we tore into it and are ready to share our thoughts. Not only on the series but the Sex Pistols in general. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we crank some new and used from Anvil, Piledriver, Volcandra, The Slime and The Skirts. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

June 2, 2022

How do you follow up a legendary "Bucket List" interview? How about with a Juno Award winner! Joining last week's "Creature Feature" Exciter at the Manitoba Metalfest was Canuck trad metallers Striker! So now is a great time to get caught up with former RAM alum vox Dan Cleary. We discussed winning said award and the  "Strike Her!" gag from the classic "Airplane" flick. Last episode we took the Nuge up to task for the beef with Joan Jett. So we put our money where our mouths is and came up with our own "Top Ten Greatest guitarists" lists. To do this properly, it's definitely harder than it seems. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss the new Tony Hawk doc. Musically, we crank new and used from the aforementioned Striker + Grave Digger, Razor, Cryptopsy, (the real) Slaughter, Jungle Rot, Outre Tombe, Riot.303 and Nekkromaniac.

Episode 700: We’re So Excited! - interview with Exciter

Episode 700: We’re So Excited! - interview with Exciter

May 26, 2022

Like the lady said..."We're so excited!" First off, this is another milestone with episode 700!! Plus, we recently experienced a night of firsts at the recent Manitoba Metalfest. It was the first time the legendary Exciter played our neck of the woods. It was the first time we've seen the classic line up live. And finally, it was the first time we had the good fortune of getting drummer/vox Dan Beetler onto our interview hotseat. Our excitement for Exciter goes back as far as for Heavy Metal itself with the classic "Violence And Force" album. So we didn't even really know where to begin with Mr. Beehler. But at the same time we had a thousand questions for him. We discussed the band's history with Megaforce Records and what the future holds! Another Bucket List interview! In our "News, Views and Tunes", we go into extra innings discussing Judas Priest and Onslaught going into the "Rock n Roll" and "Metal" HOFs, the impending return of Spinal Tap, and completely dissect the Joan Jett/Ted Nugent beef. Musically, we crank new and used from Exciter, D.O.A., the aforementioned Onslaught, Tysondog, Metalucifer, Iron Dogs, Immortal Bird, and Sadistic Ritual! Whew! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 699: Give ’Em The Axe

Episode 699: Give ’Em The Axe

May 5, 2022

Heavy Metal comes in all shapes, sounds, forms and sub (sub) genres. But one constant is the electric guitar. The guitar epitomizes Heavy Metal. So if you're not a well seasoned player, then the guitar could be taken for granted. Or at least to the point where, as fans, we don't necessarily have a firm grasp on the instrument. 50% of us here at RAM are a said seasoned player. And the other half is more of an appreciator. So combining our efforts, we're taking a look at the driving force behind  our beloved genre. Namely, our takes on the major offerings from the major brands. Hopefully this episode will give you an appreciation for "The Axe". In our "News, Views and Tunes", we give our thoughts on the shooting at the L.A. deathcore show. Musically, we crank new and used from Ripping Corpse, Dead Head, Sore Throat, Suppression, Wraith, Modern Terror and Crawling Through Tartarus. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Another Record Store Day is in the books! In our travels, we had a few misses. But the hits were nuclear! Apart from the cool new official releases, RSD is an overall experience. Hopefully with stories to tell for years to come. So this week we're sharing said experiences and basking in our RSD treasures. Both official and unofficial. As well, with the arrival of the american idol "reality" type bullshit programs, we championed the idea of giving a similar stage to real musicians. Artists creating and showcasing their original compositions. Enter - "No Covers". A cool new YouTube program feat. judges like Alice Cooper and Lzzy Hale. It's a great show so you know it's not on network/normie television. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we crank new and used from Sentient Horror, Juggernaut, Mongrel's Cross, Besieged, Chained To The Dead and introduce Canadian thrashers Derelict for a return spot in in our "Indie Spotlight".
