Episode 497: No Cure for Metal

March 16, 2018 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Progressive NY death metallers UNCURED are a unique story. Generally our Creature Feature segments are reserved for established veterans on reputable labels with larger followings. Uncured though are unsigned and basically doing it D.I.Y. One just would never know it. With their extensive touring and promotion, they appear to be the blueprint of a big label’s promotions.  Three quarters of the line up are barely into their 20s but accented by veteran DIECAST bassist Jon Kita! So when Uncured […]

Obviously, with an outfit like Season Of Mist recording artists PHILIP H. ANSELMO & THE ILLEGALS, the groups namesake and frontman will be the one garnering the most press attention. But each group can have 3, 4,5 other members and each have their own unique story to tell. With P.H.A. & The Illegals, axeman Stephen Taylor is such a member. With the new record “Choosing Mental Illness As A Virtue” getting major play in RAM offices, we […]

Veteran metallers will remember NAILBOMB. They were a short lived, blistering project of then SEPULTURA/current SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera and FUDGE TUNNEL‘s Alex Newport. This diabolical duo unleashed their killer debut “Point Blank” in ’94. In 2018, Mr. Cavalera seems to be bitten by the ‘Bomb bug again and Nailbomb is back! Max’s main band Soulfly is about to hit the road paying tribute to that classic debut. So this is an opportune time to get Max back on the show […]

We love us some death/doom around here. Floridian metallers DRUID LORD have been on our radar for sometime now, so it was just a matter of time before we got a DLer on the RAM hotseat. Founding member Pete Slate has a metal resume dating back decades now. He’s still waving the underground Metal flag with his latest record “Grotesque Offerings”, available now from Hell’s Headbangers Records!! We talk about the new album and single, their arrival […]
