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!!

Episode 572: Kvlted - interview with Culted

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. Musical, we crank the the new Culled album, label mates Vulcan, Sect, Embalmer and Skating Polly. Horns!!

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!!

Episode 566: Which Worm? - interview with Wormwitch

August 2, 2019

The first time we spoke with Prosthetic recording artists Wormwitch it was a memorable occasion. They killed it live supporting the legendary Suffocation. Fast forward a few years and WW are back with a new record, more experience, and a headlining tour of their own. As a bonus, this time we caught up with all three Wormwitchers. We discussed the new record "Heaven That Dwells Within", the growth of the band, and share a road story of the wrong kind of sex in "Sex, Drugs and Rock N Roll" (!!). In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss Metal and Punk bands that have crossed over (not "crossover") to the other's audience. Musically, we crank the new WW, plus Enthroned, Enforced, Cropsy Maniac, Tripsitter, some classics from Nuclear Assault, Dead Kennedys and Ludichrist. Finally, we introduce Canadian punkers Pervcore in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 565: Hatriot Games - interview with Hatriot

July 26, 2019

The Souza name needs no introduction to The Metal World. Steve "Zetro" Souza has attained legendary with the underground for his brilliant work with the mighty Exodus. But his legacy (see what i did there) will live on in the form of Hatriot. Already no stranger to this show, Hatriot is the side project Zetro formed with his sons Cody and Nick. Now with Exodus taking up so much of the elder Souza's time, the band has been left in the capable hands of his offspring. With the new record "From Days Unto Darkness" just hitting the racks, we got Cody Souza on the horn. We discussed the new album, the band monicker in today's political climate, and The Bay Area yesterday and today. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss the Tool/bieber thing, The Metallica tix fiasco, and heavy metal underwear(?)!! Musically we crank the new Hatriot, Tomb Mold, Visceral Disgorge, Spirit Adrift, Endless Chaos, a classic from Epidemic, and we introduce BornBroken in our "Indie Spotlight".

Episode 564: Tie Your Metal Down

Episode 564: Tie Your Metal Down

July 19, 2019

The recent Rob Miller/holocaust denier controversy has been causing quite a stir in the Metal underground. When it came to our attention last episode, things were still up in the air as to what exactly was going on. One of our fave heroines, right behind Doro Pesch and Jo Bench of course, is the mighty Wonder Woman. The Amazonian's "Lasso Of Truth" proves to be an effective weapon is questioning unsavories. It made us think of the possibilities of using it upon Metaldom and getting a straight answer on some burning questions. Who would we use it on? What would we ask them? Being "Creature Feature" - less it made for some pretty interesting conversation. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we give our support to oppressed Iranian metallers Confess and go over the new season of Banger TV's "Shredders Of Metal". Musically we crank cool tune from Abbath, Batushka, Outer Heaven, Pelican, Torso, Bleach Everything and introduce Canadian metalllers Widow's Peak in our "Indie Spotlight"! Horns!
