Episode 667: The Neighbour Of The Beast

August 12, 2021

Welcome to the week after The Big One! Following our monumental 666th episode, the music world celebrated another milestone. It was the 40th anniversary of the debut of MTV. Of course even in those early years MTV never meant much to Metal fans. Apart from the Headbanger's Ball, the only thing of interest was the fact that some of the coolest vids were constantly being barred from airplay. So we choose to "celebrate" EmptyV by giving these vids the once over. As well, Canada's "Loud As Hell" fest just went down. Our good buddy, and co host of our sister show "Wrestling Night In Canada", Dustin "Ducky" Maruca was there and gives his "On The Spot Report!" All this plus a metric fvck ton of cool tunage from Wolves In The Throne Room, Into Eternity, Despise You, Dead Kennedys, Cell, Krigsgrav and White Cowbell Oklahoma!! Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 666: The Big One - interview with Aborted and celebrating episode 666

August 6, 2021

As one of the longest running podcasts (of any kind), Radioactive Metal continues to roll. Of course, only a Metal program would acknowledge episode 666 as a milestone. After 665 episodes, we are here - The Big One! To celebrate we got "the band back together" and tapped former co hort Roch to co host. We cracked open some bevies and reminisced about some of our fave memories. We go over some unique interview locales and the times we got the rock star treatment. For a "Creature Feature", it had to be an artist worthy of this position. Death Metal legends Aborted fits the bill. With a new record "Maniacult" on the racks, we spoke with vocalist Sven de Caluwe'. We discussed said album, his continued relationship with Megadeth's Dirk Verbeuren and our mutual love of all things geek! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we pay tribute to our recently fallen comrades  and crank a Fistful of Metal including Aborted, Master, Metal Church, Exhumed, Heretic, Nile, Iron Reagan, Cathedral, Putrescence, Flash Out and Metal Against Coronavirus (??) So Happy Whatever to us. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Episode 662: Witchy Radio - interview with Witch Cross

July 8, 2021

Another one off the old Bucket List! We discovered Danish heavy rockers Witch Cross in '84. The same time we went Metal full time. The outfit's debut album "Fit For Fight" caught our attention right away. So much in fact said album produced one of our fave songs ever! The band's output has been sporadic over the years. But now WC are back with an amazing new album "Angel of Death". Founder/axeman Mike Koch has been there for the whole ride. And the new album affords us the opportunity to have him the RAM hottest. We go over everything about the new album and dive into some cool history. So exciting! In our "News, Views and Tunes",  we discuss the recent Canadian church burnings and read/dissect an interesting "Entitled Parent" Reditt post regarding a Les Paul gee-tar. Musically, we crank new (and classic) Witch Cross + Witch Vomit, Ghoul, Exorcist, Morbid Breath and Noctambulist. Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

July 8, 2021

Welcome to Radioactive Metal's second Watch Along. We had such a great time during the Halloween season covering the 80s horror rock film "Trick Or Treat", we figured we'd give it another go. "Decline of The Western Civilization 2- The Metal Years" is an old fave of ours. This docu film covering the 80s LA metal scene is rich with rock n roll history and a lot of laughs as well. Just watching this film takes us back to the times watching it a teens. It was definitely a party vibe and I think we recreated that. Now's the chance to relive those memories with us. You'll laugh, you'll cry... you'll rock n roll! So put this special episode in your earholes. Simultaneously press play on the movie format of your choice. And enjoy!

Episode 660: Lori’s Mom -  “Metal Muthas” with Barbara Bravo

Episode 660: Lori’s Mom - “Metal Muthas” with Barbara Bravo

June 24, 2021

We've never hidden our love of Decibel magazine. We've been monthly readers/subscribers for years now. We've chatted about it endlessly and have interviewed contributors. A fave regular feature has been the Metal Muthas column, where the mother of a prominent artist is interviewed. Well...we thought we'd give it a go ourselves. Our fandom of legendary deathmongers Nuclear Death goes back decades.  Our friendship with mainperson Lori Bravo has really blossomed over the past year. Thru that we've gotten to know Lori's mom Barbara Bravo, making her  the ideal candidate for our inaugural Metal Mothers feature. "The Mumster" shares with us a little bit about herself, what Lori was like as child and, of course, her first reaction to hearing the brutality that is Nuclear Death. In our "News, Views and Tunes", we share our Record Store Day booty and make our picks for July's RSD releases. Musically, we crank new stuff from Witch Cross, Lucifer's Hammer, General Surgery and Killing Addiction. Plus some classic stuff from Nuclear Assault, Slaughter and introduce Wyoming metallers Fell Harvest in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns Up and Stay Healthy!

Unfortunately, this week Aaron was unable to join us. So with his blessing, your "Cool Uncle Snowy" set out and enlisted a suitable co host. Death Metal trailblazer (and good friend) Lori Bravo (ex-Nuclear Death) has dropped her amazing new solo album "Bare Bones". So it made for a perfect opportunity to get her back on the show again. We discuss the new album, her almost relationship with Autopsy's Chris Reifert and the impending ND Moribund reissues. Miss. Bravo was happy to share the spotlight with death noise rockers Yautja. The outfit just dropped their new record "The Lurch" via Relapse. We got drummer Tyler Coburn on the horn to give us the 411. Musically, we crank the aforementioned Yautja and Bravo records + some Nuclear Death, Autopsy, Graveripper, Debauchery, Impetigo and Mutilation Rites.
