Episode 512: Withdrawal Technique - Withdrawal interview

July 13, 2018
00:0000:00

There's two sides to every story, two sides to every coin. A couple of years back, we had a cool chat with Adam, the vocalist of Canadian hardcore band WITHDRAWAL. The band's Escapist Records debut "Never" was ready to drop and we spoke of his committment to straight edge. Fast forward to present day and we now sit down with his brother Joel and bassist Mike on the mean streets of Winnipeg. We had a very entertaining chat discussing said record, being (not so) straight edge, meeting Degrassi (!) cast members and some road stories that probably shouldnt be repeated. Good times! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank the latest Withdrawal, the new SKELETONWITCH and CLITERATI, and that awesome VOLTANG band we've been putting over! Horns!!

Episode 511: Eh! Glo Abortions - DayGlo Abortions interview

July 6, 2018
00:0000:00

This was one of those happy accidents. This episode was recorded just days before July 1st (aka Canada Day). It just so happened that we had a Canadian legend waiting in the wings... Murray The Cretin of the legendary punk rockers DAYGLO ABORTIONS!! Murray has proven to be the kind of guy that definitely has something to say. What was suppose to be a "quick chat" went into a few extra innings once Mr. Cretin got warmed up. We spoke of everything in the DayGlo camp and the state of the world at large. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we get a first hand reminder of "fangirling". Musically, we crank some classic DayGlos, new WOLVHAMMER and SLAPSHOT, and some SEBASTIAN BACH. Horns!

Episode 510: Twisted Mister - Gruesome interview

June 29, 2018
00:0000:00

Far and away, our most frequent guest over the years has been veteran metaller Matt Harvey. Putting aside that he's a helluva guy and has become a good friend of the show, his multiple inclusions are justified as he's seemingly the busiest dude in Metal. He has cemented his status with the mighty Exhumed, his Expulsion project wowed the underground, and his most recent release is the ultra awesome album "Twisted Prayers" by DEATH-worshippers GRUESOME. We got on the horn with Matt to discuss the new album, the "supergroup" concept, and working with James Murphy!! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we pay tribute to Vinnie Paul and share our first hand account on the latest in the Micheal Keene (THE FACELESS) saga. Musically, we crank the new Gruesome, ANGELMAKER, LEDGE, and some appropriate PANTERA. Horns!

Episode 509: Godsmackdown! - Godsmack interview

June 22, 2018
00:0000:00

When we got tapped to speak to US hard rockers GODSMACK, we got excited. We thought "Yeah, it'll be cool to talk to Sully." But when we were informed we'd be speaking with skinsman Shannon Larkin, we got really excited!! Our interest in Mr. Larkin's work goes way back to the early days of WRATHCHILD AMERICA. We followed him through his stints in UGLY KID JOE and AMEN and now right up to his current tenure with Godsmack. So we had a myriad of questions covering all those subjects, as well as the success of their latest record "When Legends Rise" and the bands interest in pro wrasslin'. We sensed a genuine enthusiasm on his part in discussing these. That's why RAM rules! In our News, Tunes, and Views, we discuss the "final" Slayer tour that recently came through town. We dive deep into the festivities. We discuss the highs and lows, line up order, set times, and a bit of tailgating. Musically, we crank some of Mr. Larkin's notables, BRUJERIA, and some classic OBITUARY! Horns!

Episode 508: Welcome Matt - Homewrecker interview

June 15, 2018
00:0000:00

For all intents and purposes, HOMEWRECKER should be huge! The Ohio powerhouse are killing it supporting THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, winning over fans with their solid metallic punch... but their roots lay within the hardcore scene. It makes for a wicked combo that has had us champing at the bit to feature them for awhile now. Drummer/vocalist/mainman Matt Izzi has proven to be a hard character to nail down. Homewrecker keeps him hopping as do the number of other acts he provides his talents for. It took a return to homebase to, finally, have our long overdue chat. We discuss the band's new "Hell Is Here Now" record. Plus hooking up with GOOD FIGHT, their unique monicker, and the concept of drummers handling the vox! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss the CM Punk lawsuit, the return of Tim Lamesis with AILD, and how we celebrated "International Day of Slayer"!! Musically, we crank the new Homewrecker, ROTTEN SOUND, SEPTIC TANK and pay tribute to Ralph Santolla with some DEICIDE. Horns!!

Episode 507: A Lot to Ingest - Ingested interview

June 8, 2018
00:0000:00

UK deathcore meisters INGESTED are currently terrorizing the Metaldom as part of the "Devastation Of The Nation" tour. But beforehand, they were looking to inflict some damage solo. On tour promoting their latest masterpiece of molten metal mayhem "Level Above Human", we sat down with axeman Sam Yates and skinbeater Lyn Jeffs. We yacked about said new album and what exactly qualifies something to be a level above human. As well, they give us the 411 on their switch to Unique Leader and the current British deathcore scene. Overall, a lot to ingest (ha, ha)! In our News, Tunes, and Views, we go over our activities on the live front and the bizarre Josh Martin escalator tragedy. Musically, we crank the Ingested record plus new tunes from BAPTISTS, THE ATLAS MOTH, and NOCTURNAL GRAVES! Horns!!

Episode 506: Magical Metal Dust - Sevendust interview

May 18, 2018

US heavy hitters SEVENDUST are a rock n' roll survival story. A product (or victim) of the era, the band was unjustifiably lumped into the whole "nu" metal thing. But now, more than two decades later, Sevendust is still going strong while most of their counterparts disappeared or became irrelevant. Their new opus "All I See Is War" is still fresh on the new release rack. It's a killer record that proves why they've maintained their position. A busy man on the promotional front, cofounder/axeman Clint Lowery was quick to chat. He shared his thoughts on the new record, 7Dust yesterday and today, and the overall longevity of the band. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discussed hockey playoffs spoiling rock concerts, mobile record store (!!), and had an interesting chat regarding gold/platinum records in 2018. Musically we crank the new 'Dust, SAVAGE MASTER, BEWITCHER, and the new AT THE GATES! Horns!!

Episode 505: Siren Songs - Sirenia interview

May 11, 2018
00:0000:00

We recently had the pleasure of having Norwegian symphonic goth metallers SIRENIA come thru our neck of the woods. Still promoting their latest record, "Dim Days Of Dolor", this marked the first time the band has graced us with their presence. The mainman behind the music is axe/keysman Morten Veland . Being Scandinavian, he felt geographically at least, right at home 'round here so he was eager to chat all things Sirenia. We discussed the "discovery" of newish vocalist Emanuelle Zoltan, the North American tough sell, and playing unique venues. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we rock out at Rockville, discover "rock tits" (!!), and open another one of "Coreen's Bag o' Crap"! Musically, we crank the latest Sirenia, the new DEMONICAL, and some classic FORBIDDEN. Horns Up!

Episode 504: Unhooded - Midnight interview

May 4, 2018
00:0000:00

In the immortal words of Alice Cooper: "He's back! The man behind the mask!" For years now, we've been big supporters of Hells Headbangers recording artists MIDNIGHT. We bought their albums, played their tunes, and had an amazing phone chat with mainman Athenar last year... but we've never seen the guy's face!! Midnight is (in)famous for performing under their trademark black masks and hoods. So much like a masked pro wrestler or superhero, they like to  keep their identities close to the chest. With the band's recent trek through town, we finally caught up with Athenar in person: Nekkid of face! We discuss the response to their amazing "Sweet Death and Ecstasy" album, their newfound success (amongst some celebrities too), and "present" him with our Rammy Award for Band of the Year! It might get hot under that hood but this was a coooool chat. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we share some live show debauchery and Record Store Day stories. Musically we crank said Midnight album, the new THREAT SIGNAL, and Canuck metallers NECK OF THE WOODS! Horns!

Episode 503: The G Man Cometh! - Gus G interview

April 27, 2018
00:0000:00

The Ozzman gets a lot of criticism but Horns to him for his keen eye for talent on the axe. Immediately coming to mind: Randy Rhodes, Zakk Wylde, Jake E. Lee, and tonight's Creature Feature  GUS G. But while the majority of fans will know Mr. G for his work with Ozzy, 'round here we're just as versed with his work with FIREWIND. So when G's latest solo effort "Fearless" crossed our desk, we were excited to get him on the horn. We discuss said new solo record, his current relationship with Ozzy, and the origins of his unique monicker. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we address the latest controversy involving ROTTING CHRIST and the walmart/STRYPER sitch. Musically, we crank the new G, Rotting Christ, and Canuck death metallers REGURGITATED GUTS! Horns!!

Episode 502: The Big Rossman - Ross the Boss interview

April 20, 2018
00:0000:00

Bruce who? Ross The Boss, the man, the myth, the legend, has played key roles in the development of two of our beloved genres. First, his band THE DICTATORS were a standard of 70s punk. Then, the NY veteran switched gears in the 80s and entered the world of heavy metal by forming the mighty MANOWAR!! Despite these accolades, the Big Bossman has now spent the majority of his musical endeavours as just plain old Ross The Boss. With his latest solo record (By Blood Sworn) just hitting the racks, it's time for another bucket list Creature Feature. We discuss said record, talk some cool Dictators/Manowar history, and does anyone remember MANITOBA'S WILD KINGDOM??!! And we also get a three decades old question answered. Other pods play, RAM kills! Musically we crank The Boss' new album, the new VARATHRON, and some live Dictators! Horns!!

Episode 501: No Bone Unearthed - Skeletal Remains interview

April 13, 2018
00:0000:00

California death metallers SKELETAL REMAINS are making big strides in their quest to bring the Metal to the masses. That all important 3rd album, "Devouring Mortality", just hit the new release rack. It's a key album that finds them stepping up a notch, as it marks their debut on Dark Descent (and Century Media) Records. Once again amongst the chaos of The Manitoba Metalfest, we caught our breath with axe/vox Chris Monroy, Adrian Obregon (guitar), and bassist Adrius Marquez. We discussed the new record, their Decibel flexi, and working with such notables as Dan Swano and Dan Seagrave. We leave no bone unearthed! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we trade stories on the live front and pay tribute to some fallen comrades. Musically we crank the new Skeletal and some classic DESTRUCTOR and ROYAL THUNDER! Horns!!

He being our first interview subject, it's only fitting to have him on our 500th! We discuss his latest project "Rise Of LA Thrash Metal Part 2", as he takes us behind the scenes of this creation.

Episode 499: Original Hammer - Demolition Hammer interview

March 30, 2018
00:0000:00

Veteran NY thrashers DEMOLITION HAMMER played an important role in the history of the extreme metal underground. DH made their debut with their classic "Tortured Existence" album on the very young and fledging Century Media Records at the time. This album, along with a handful of other key releases, helped build the foundation for the CM that we all know and love. The band's tenure would be short lived, releasing only two more records. The last couple of years have seen DH on the comeback trail, including a stop at The Manitoba Metalfest. Amongst the backstage chaos, we spoke with original members Steve Reynolds (bass/box) and axemen James Reilly and Derek Sykes. We got into the inspiration for the comeback and went into the illustrious past and active future. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we get stoked over the "return" of BURN THE PRIEST and pay tribute to the legendary Killjoy! Musically we crank some classic Demo Hammer, NECROPHAGIA, HAXXAN, and CAPITALIST CASUALTIES. Horns!!

To celebrate our 500th episode, we have teamed up with @trve.kvlt.coffee and @themetalheadbox for a monster metal giveaway!

Episode 498: Summer of Saint - Armored Saint interview

March 23, 2018
00:0000:00

We see a pattern here. It was this time last year that we ran our first (!) ARMORED SAINT interview, a real cool chat with Joey Vera. Now this year, The Saint march into summer with a pretty cool gameplan. Throughout July and August, the band will hit the road playing the "Symbol Of Salvation" record in its entirety. The band's extensive discography does have some bigger, more well known albums. But "Symbol" holds a special place for The Saint and their diehards. So now is a good time for what we hope will be an annual tradition as we got mainman John Bush on the horn. We got into the whys and wherefores of their album and tour, which of his fave albums he'd like to see get the live treatment, especially which one of his Anthrax albums. Same time next year? What's Gonzo up to? In our News, Views, and Tunes, we cover the Dirkschneider "Farewell To Accept" tour stop and we crank some Saint, the new NAPALM DEATH, and some WITCHERY! Horns!
