Episode 338: Leaders In The Field

The recent Carnival Of Death tour features some of the Metal underground’s legendary artists. Featured prominently are NY deathsters INTERNAL BLEEDING and PYREXIA. The third common denominator amongst these bands is they’re both on the Unique Leader Records roster. For the uninitiated, UL is a veteran indie label specializing in some of the best death metal the world over. With IB and Pyrexia in our hot seat, this is a good time to send some metal love to these leaders in the field. First up, none other than IB axeman Chris Pervelis gives us a musical lesson stemming from 25 years of experience. His long time homie Doug Bohn, ex-Suffocation and current Pyrexia drummer, contributes his wisdom about UL and exactly what “pyrexia” mean. In our News, Views and Tunes, we share our backstage antics with EXODUS at a recent Slayer gig and crank some Unique Leader tunes such as our subjects, SOREPTION, and ALTERBEAST. Whew. Horns!

Episode 336: Devils We Know

In the Metal world, supergroups can be hit or miss. Due to the schedules of full time gigs, these collaborations have a tendency of having a limited shelf life. Sometimes a part-time gig turns into a full-time endeavor. Featuring current and former members of a who’s who in modern metal, Nuclear Blast recording artists DEVIL YOU KNOW possesses an incredible pedigree and is quick to assert that they’re not five ships passing in the night. Guitarist Francesco Artusato (All Shall Perish) and drummer John Sankey (ex- Fear Factory) gave us the 411 on being a supergroup, the Metal Hammer Golden God Awards, and the devils they know. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss photographing the mighty JUDAS PRIEST, “stalking” Christina Scabbia, and say goodbye to Mr. Wayne Static. All this and we introduce Texas black metallers WHORE OF BETHLEHEM in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!!
