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". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

"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.

Break out the heavy artillery! Legendary thrashers Artillery are back with another killer record! Appropriately entitled "X", this latest platter is the outfit's 10th (!) album.

Episode 652: Heavy Metal Delorean

April 29, 2021

No "Creature Feature?" No pro-blem-o! Here at the RAM offices, we're veterans of the scene. A.K.A. we're old. Having gone heavy music full time in '84, we've seen a lot stuff about our beloved genre come and go. While we look back fondly on what was, there is a number of cool stuff from today we'd love to take back to those glory daze. On the flip side, there's a number of cool stuff from yesteryear that we'd love to see as a part of today's scene. So we put on our thinking helmets and share our thought on creating a "fully armed and operational" Metal World! In our "News, Views and Tunes", we crank new tunage from Artillery, Pestilence, CroMags, Bongzilla, Morbosidad and introduce Pennsylvania's Befell in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 651: Radioactive Wrasslin’ - interview with Nasty Savage

Episode 651: Radioactive Wrasslin’ - interview with Nasty Savage

April 22, 2021

More and more the connection between our beloved genre and the world of professional wrestling is getting stronger and stronger. Ring entrance music, gimmicks and, most importantly, a lot of wrestler's themselves are real life Metalheads. One of the original crossovers is Nasty Savage maiman "Nasty" Ronnie.  In our youth, we started out as Nasty Savage fans. But then we really "marked" out when Mr. Ronnie took his outrageous stage antics to the squared circle in his home state of Florida. Ronnie was actually a "Bucket List' interview from the get go, and with it being Wrestlemania season, getting him on the horn was an easy match up. We discussed the early years of NS, his journey into the mat world, right up to his "Born To Ride" TV series. This being a special wrestling episode, we enlisted the talents of "Ducky" Dustin Maruca and Matt Copper from our sister show "Wrestling Night In Canada".  We discussed Ozzy going into the WWE Hall of Fame, the Misfits stint in WCW, and our picks for musicians that would make great wrasslers! If all this doesn't get us the Three Count then musically we crank some Savage, God's Hate, Hirax, Piledriver, Hallow's Eve, AntiSeen, Brody's Militia, and Eat The Turnbuckle! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 650: Eargazm - interview with Eye and Ear Control Records

April 11, 2021

Band interviews rule. They're the bread and butter of this show. There are a number of other facets of our beloved genre that don't always get their just due. We've spoken to a number of these unsung heroes before; producers, authors/writers, record company dudes. Mr. Brad Skibinsky offers up something different. He's a one man vinyl distributor behind Eye and Ear Control Records. Basically, he's his own record shop and mail-order. And an all round cool dude we've known for quite awhile from the scene. So we're stoked to present his story. We discuss the idea, the inspiration and passion behind the enterprise. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", Record Store Day(s) will be upon us soon. We we deep dive into the upcoming releases and make our own Want Lists. Musically, we crank some Blasphemy, Asagraum, Horndal, Bloody Hell, Destroyed in Seconds, Humanity Is Cancer and introduce Montreal metallers WarCall in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!!

Episode 649: Hel Awaits! - interview with Helstar

April 4, 2021

Veteran rockers are getting the best of yesterday and today. Today's scene is full of young talent. And the old guard is still creating killer tunes. Texas metallers Helstar are a great example of the old guard giving the upstarts a run for their moolah. Helstar have a wicked new record on the racks entitled "Clad In Black". A cool comp. featuring new singles, cover tunes, and a re issue of the killer "Vampiro" album. So it's a good time to get vox/mainman James Rivers on the horn. We discussed said record, the 80s TX metal scene, and his obvious vampire obsession. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we go over Jon Schaffer's "Do Over" and those very unique Motorhead bullets. Musically, we crank new and used Helstar plus Blaspherian, Agent Steel, Motor Jesus, Bullet Belt, Steel Baring Hand, live Autopsy, new Hell's Headbanger's signees Nocturnal Departure and intro Toronto metallers Devilz By Definition in our "Indie Spotlight".
