Episode 581: Beyond Metal - interview with Beyond Creation

November 15, 2019

Canadian tech deathsters Beyond Creation have had a stellar year. They released their sophomore Season Of Mist records (and third over all) "Algorythm" to a rabid underground. Going so far as to nab themselves a Juno nod (the Canadian equivalent of the grammies). We caught up with B.C. again during their tour stop here. Vox/axe Simon Girard was eager to give a moment of this time. As well, we welcome Sky La Vercruysee, she of Bulldog Pizza and Event Centre fame. Sky joins us to share with us her thoughts on artists that have "jumped the shark", either personally or for their careers. Eyyyyyy!! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we trade stories from the live front and crank tunes from the latest B.C., the new Wolfbrigade, Cloak, Insvrgence, Sentient Horror, Squalus, Wehrmacht, and Mercyful Fate. Rest In Power, Timi Hansen! Horns!!

Episode 580: Clitorious - interview with Cliterati

Episode 580: Clitorious - interview with Cliterati

November 8, 2019

Oregon hardcore bashers Cliterati are making major waves in the underground scene. Their radical left wing and feminist views may be rustling some feathers. But it's their awesome new album "Ugly Truths/Beautiful Lies" that's garnering the majority of the attention. The band was been Wowing us for awhile now so it was time to speak with vox Ami Lawless. We discussed the new record, the origins of her gimmick name and band monicker and working with Joel Grind. We made a new BFF in Lawless, for sure. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss where some of our fave acts were in their careers when we were at the height of our fandom. An entertaining and surprising conversation. And for a few minutes we discover corporate radio isn't always a cultural wasteland. Musically, we crank some Cliterati, Integrity, Hellripper, Violation Wound, Chthonic Deity, and some classic stuff from Fastway, Strife and Hallow's Eve! Horns!!

Episode 579: Incantation Squared - interviews with Blood Incantation and Alex Bouks

November 1, 2019

This current Immolation tour has kept us hopping (and moshing). Not only did it present us with last episode's awesome interview with the legendary Immolation, but we got two more out of the deal. First up, underground darlings Blood Incantation. Believe the hype with this outfit. We had a cool chat with all four Incanters discussing the critical success of their debut, the brutal bootleg issue and the music biz itself. A chat that displayed them well beyond their years. Not to be outdone by his tour mates, Immo's Alex Bouks sat down with us. Mr. Bouks has a storied career within the underground having founded the legendary Gorephobia and spent time with Incantation. Immolation's pedigree is astounding!! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we compile our own personal Alice Cooper tribute album. Musically, we crank  B.I. and new tunes from 1349, Crypt Sermon and SunO))). As well as the aforementioned Incantation, Gorephobia and Lazz Rocket. Horns and Happy Halloween!!

Episode 578: On Fire! - interview with Immolation

October 25, 2019

NY death metal legends Immolation need little in the way of introduction. Their roots go back to the late 80s and were major players in the early 90s death boom. Fast forward to the present day and Immo are three decades and ten albums old. Their place in Metaldom has been solidified. The outfit's recent stopover in town gave us the opportunity to again sit down with bass/vox Ross Dolan and axeman Robert Vigna. Once again they demonstrated why they have the reps of being some of the nicer guys in Metal. We discussed the whys and wherefores of the latest record. As well, as living off the band and their views of the next generation of Death. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we continue in the spirit of Halloween and discuss Metal artists that would fit Horror movie roles. Musically, we crank new and classic Immolation, Necronomicon, Cropsy Maniac, Butcher Babies, Skeletorium, Hobbs' Angel Of Death and introduce ChiTown's Vile Cynic in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!

Episode 577: It’s Alive - interview with Cirith Ungol

October 18, 2019

The legendary Cirith Ungol will always have a special place in our Metal Hearts. We went full on Metal in  our fandom just as CU were breaking out into the underground. As we took our first steps to the Metal selection in our local record store, the band's debut "Land Of The Dead" caught our attention. And it's stuck with us ever since. So now decades later we have the opportunity to speak with a founding Ungoller. On the eve of Cirith's new live album "I'm Alive" hitting the racks, we sat down with drummer Robert Garven. We discussed the new record, bassist Jarvis Leatherby's spot in Night Demon, and the band's place in Heavy Metal history. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we put on our concert promoters caps and create our own "Ultimate Halloween Concert'. Musically we crank new and classic Cirith, Angel Witch, Deceased, The Machinist, Destructor, Impetigo, Bitch, and 45 Grave! Horns!!

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.

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!!

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.

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.
