Episode 662: Witchy Radio - interview with Witch Cross

July 8, 2021

Another one off the old Bucket List! We discovered Danish heavy rockers Witch Cross in '84. The same time we went Metal full time. The outfit's debut album "Fit For Fight" caught our attention right away. So much in fact said album produced one of our fave songs ever! The band's output has been sporadic over the years. But now WC are back with an amazing new album "Angel of Death". Founder/axeman Mike Koch has been there for the whole ride. And the new album affords us the opportunity to have him the RAM hottest. We go over everything about the new album and dive into some cool history. So exciting! In our "News, Views and Tunes",  we discuss the recent Canadian church burnings and read/dissect an interesting "Entitled Parent" Reditt post regarding a Les Paul gee-tar. Musically, we crank new (and classic) Witch Cross + Witch Vomit, Ghoul, Exorcist, Morbid Breath and Noctambulist. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

July 8, 2021

Welcome to Radioactive Metal's second Watch Along. We had such a great time during the Halloween season covering the 80s horror rock film "Trick Or Treat", we figured we'd give it another go. "Decline of The Western Civilization 2- The Metal Years" is an old fave of ours. This docu film covering the 80s LA metal scene is rich with rock n roll history and a lot of laughs as well. Just watching this film takes us back to the times watching it a teens. It was definitely a party vibe and I think we recreated that. Now's the chance to relive those memories with us. You'll laugh, you'll cry... you'll rock n roll! So put this special episode in your earholes. Simultaneously press play on the movie format of your choice. And enjoy!

Episode 660: Lori’s Mom -  “Metal Muthas” with Barbara Bravo

Episode 660: Lori’s Mom - “Metal Muthas” with Barbara Bravo

June 24, 2021

We've never hidden our love of Decibel magazine. We've been monthly readers/subscribers for years now. We've chatted about it endlessly and have interviewed contributors. A fave regular feature has been the Metal Muthas column, where the mother of a prominent artist is interviewed. Well...we thought we'd give it a go ourselves. Our fandom of legendary deathmongers Nuclear Death goes back decades.  Our friendship with mainperson Lori Bravo has really blossomed over the past year. Thru that we've gotten to know Lori's mom Barbara Bravo, making her  the ideal candidate for our inaugural Metal Mothers feature. "The Mumster" shares with us a little bit about herself, what Lori was like as child and, of course, her first reaction to hearing the brutality that is Nuclear Death. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we share our Record Store Day booty and make our picks for July's RSD releases. Musically, we crank new stuff from Witch Cross, Lucifer's Hammer, General Surgery and Killing Addiction. Plus some classic stuff from Nuclear Assault, Slaughter and introduce Wyoming metallers Fell Harvest in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Unfortunately, this week Aaron was unable to join us. So with his blessing, your "Cool Uncle Snowy" set out and enlisted a suitable co host. Death Metal trailblazer (and good friend) Lori Bravo (ex-Nuclear Death) has dropped her amazing new solo album "Bare Bones". So it made for a perfect opportunity to get her back on the show again. We discuss the new album, her almost relationship with Autopsy's Chris Reifert and the impending ND Moribund reissues. Miss. Bravo was happy to share the spotlight with death noise rockers Yautja. The outfit just dropped their new record "The Lurch" via Relapse. We got drummer Tyler Coburn on the horn to give us the 411. Musically, we crank the aforementioned Yautja and Bravo records + some Nuclear Death, Autopsy, Graveripper, Debauchery, Impetigo and Mutilation Rites.

Episode 658: D.I.S. And Dat - interview with Destroyed In Seconds

June 10, 2021

Last year we were blown away from Calif. crusties Destroyed In Seconds latest album "Divide And Devour". D.I.S. have a cool crossover sound that appeals to Metalheads and Punks alike. It took awhile but Deep Six Records came correct and released a sweet vinyl edition of said album. We were so stoked with the presentation we had to speak with vox Jon Tamala. He gave us the dis and dat on the new album plus sharing the stage with hardcore legends and putting over his bandmate's other outfits. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss censorship with regards to a Texas art teacher and make a hockey bet with a veteran Canadian Metal band. Musically, we crank the new D.I.S., Flotsam And Jetsam, Phobia, Victims, Entropy, Inhuman Condition, Children Of Technology and introduce San Diego's Nightshadow in our "Indie Spotlight".

"I love it when that happens!" These were the enthusiastic words spilling out of our mouths when we found out we were going to be speaking with German thrash veterans Desaster. On the day of the release of the outfit's new album!!! "Churches Without Saints" is full lenghter #9 (!!) from these Teutonic Terrors. And while some of their fellow country brethren might get the lion share of the attention, Desaster has been making waves of their own.
