Episode 608: Angus Who? - interview with ACXDC

May 29, 2020

During the 80s "Satanic Panic", a certain Australian hard rock band came under fire for their monicker. Fast forward years later and California powerviolencers ACXDC took the concept and ran with it. We got stoked when the grinders signed on with Prosthetic Records and jumped at the opportunity to speak with vocalist Sergio Amalfitano. At that very moment the new album "Satan Is King" was being put out on the racks. Gotta love happy accidents. Mr. Amalfitano was quick to explain the history of their unique name and the concept of the new record. Great stuff in another long overdue chat. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we celebrate a shared Bday with some classic records. Musically, we crank the new ACXDC, Vader, Oz, Ulcerate, WVRM, Werewolves, Tombstoner, Pile of Priests (!!), and introduce Canadian thrashers Torrefy in our "indie Spotlight". Horns and Stay Healthy!

Episode 607: Metal Makes Us Feel Good - interview with Lord Vigo

Episode 607: Metal Makes Us Feel Good - interview with Lord Vigo

May 22, 2020

German metallers Lord Vigo should be on your radar for a number of reasons. #1. We recently played them. #2. Their unique monicker really stands out. As does their unique epic doom meets NWOBHM sensibilities sound. #3, and most importantly, they've got an awesome new album "Danse De Noir" on the racks courtesy of the good folks at High Roller Records. So now's the time to get vox/(studio) drummer Vinz Clortho on the horn. We talked the new record, their new home, and their obvious love of sic-fi. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we talk bloody armpits (??!!) and crank tune from the new LV plus Sinister, Raspberry Bulbs, Power From Hell, Slaughter Messiah, Infernal Execrator, and introduce Florida doom rockers Northern Crown in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns and Health!!

Episode 606: Dave’s Right Here, Man! - interview with Slasher Dave (Acid Witch, Slasher Dave)

Episode 606: Dave’s Right Here, Man! - interview with Slasher Dave (Acid Witch, Slasher Dave)

May 15, 2020

Slasher Dave is probably most familiar to our listeners as the mainman behind the amazing Acid Witch. But every great artist has a strong versatility to their art. So when Dave's not killing it with his main gig, his alter ego Slasher Dave creeps out. Dave's love of all things Horror is never more evident than with the cool sounds this project conjures up. SD's music is his own instrumental interpretation of classic horror flicks. Case in point - his new album "Cannibal Death Gods" is a beautiful homage to the jungle cannibal flicks of yesteryear. So now's a great time to yack with Dave about the whys and wherefores of this record including the concept and what drives his unique art. Of course, we get an update on Acid Witch as well. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we celebrate Motorhead Day (the 8th of May) with a toast to Lemmy himself. Musically, we crank the new Slasher record plus some Acid Witch, Sarcofago, Devangelic, Horrific, Holocausto, and introduce South American deathsters Reptilium in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 605: Beer Me, Please - interview with Chris Dodge (Spazz, Despise You, Trappist)

Episode 605: Beer Me, Please - interview with Chris Dodge (Spazz, Despise You, Trappist)

May 7, 2020

Once we sat down with grindcore/powerviolence trailblazer Chris Dodge (Spazz, Depise you, Infest), we knew this was going to be a unique episode. Apart from all these amazing projects he's plied his trade with, Mr. Dodge has left his mark on a variety of other aspects in the aggressive music community. So we sat down and had one helluva chat with the man. We discussed all his musical output, hailing from the Bay Area, Slap a Ham Records, and his love of specialty beers. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we take inspiration from Mr. Dodge's "No Corporate Beer" column in Decibel magazine and do a our own taste test from some of our local(ish) brews. Musically, we crank a bunch of Chris' projects as well as D.O.A.'s Joey Shithead's tribute to the front liners against this crisis. Big Horns especially to them!!

You have to strike while the Irons are hot. As this episode first goes to air, US death metalllers Unmerciful's latest platter "Wrath Encompassed" will only be a week to the day on the racks.

Episode 603: Ash To Ash - interview with Ash Thomas (Faith Xtractor, Surgikill)

April 24, 2020

This week we have another veteran we should've had on a long time ago. Ash Thomas is a multi instrumentalist who's been tearing it up in the underground since '93. Most notable (past?) projects include Crucified Mortals and Archeron. Today Mr. Thomas is killing it with killer outfits like Hell's Headbangers Faith Xtractor and Shed The Skin. As well as Surgikill featuring Steve O from the legendary Impetigo! With his newest project Machinations of Fate recently hitting the racks courtesy of Redefining Darkness, we finally got him on the horn. We discussed all of the goings on with his bands and we discovered a mutual love of "WKRP in Cincinnati". We knew he was cool. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we share an embarrassing quarantined story and learn the expression "Djoom" (??). Musically, we crank the aforementioned Faith Xtractor and Surgikill. Plus some new tunage from Deranged, Torn in Half, Violation Wound and introduce Toronto bashers Cryptonight in our "Indie Spotlight". Stay healthy and Horns Up!!

Episode 602: Creepin’ Us Out - interview with Creeping Death

Episode 602: Creepin’ Us Out - interview with Creeping Death

April 17, 2020

Whats in a name? With their chosen monicker, no doubt young death metal guns Creeping Death have received more than their share of detractors. But to write this outfit off as mere clones would definitely be wrong. In a short period of these Texas bashers are really starting to come into their own. Creeping Death made waves last year with their debut full lengther "Wretched Illusions". On eOne, no less! So now is an awesome time to get axeman Trey Pemberton on the horn. We discussed signing on to a major and dealing  with criticisms regarding it and their monicker. And of course dealing with covid as a band. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discussed the latest ticketmaster skullduggery. And of course, crank some awesome tunes from CD, Blood Red Throne, Benighted, Defeated Sanity, Judiciary, Errant, Foes, Funeral Leech, Crown of Thorns, and introduce Canadian metallers Immolith in our "Indie Spotlight". Stay healthy and Horns!!

Episode 601: Flash Of The Scythe - interview with Reaper Metal Productions

Episode 601: Flash Of The Scythe - interview with Reaper Metal Productions

April 10, 2020

"Heavy Metal finds a way". We're paraphrasing here a bit but the sentiment remains true. With all this crazy covd stuff going on, our beloved genre is still finding ways to entertain us. At the forefront are our good buddies with Reaper Metal Productions. RMP mainman Reaper (d'uh) is no stranger to the show having graced us in the past discussing his various musical projects. Now RMP has a myriad of wicked new tunes we've been playing and we've kept ourselves up date with his various other projects under the RMP umbrella. So now is a great time to get Reap (to his friend) back on the horn. We discussed their latest music releases, what RMP looks for in a artist, and dealing with covid. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we crank some cool tunes from Cirith Ungol, Destructor, Insatanity, Viogression, Dick Vomit, Perdition Temple, and introduce Canadian bashers Black Pestilence in our "Indie Spotlight". Stay safe, stay healthy, and Horns Up!!

Episode 599: Kiss Was Taken - interview with Thrust

March 27, 2020

For veteran Metallers, Thrust should have a special place in your Metal heart. During the early/mid 80s underground Metal explosion, Thrust's Metal Blade debut "Fists Held High" was part of that first wave of wicked records that paved the way. The mainman behind the outfit is axeman Ronnie Cooke. Mr. Cooke is an Iron Man of the Metal world and after all these decades he continues to kill it. In a long overdue interview we discuss the storied history of the band, their spot in the current Metal scene, and the 2020 concept of "Posers". Another chat off the old Bucket List! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss coping with the pandemic thru the scene. Musically, we crank some new and classic Thrust, label mates Lost Legacy and Spartan Warrior plus new tune from Nunslaughter and Shards Of Humanity. Horns!!
