Episode 359: Just An Average Demon

On this week’s exciting episode, we found ourselves all over the friggin’ place. We could hardly be blamed if the excitement boils over as we have the good fortune of featuring the new Prince Of Darkness in DEICIDE‘s Glen Benton. We discussed the band’s humble beginnings, producer Jason Suecof, death metal posers, and The Man answers an age old question. Contrary to popular controversy,  turns out he’s just a regular cool guy! But when he does go to Hell , you know he’s gonna take over. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we had the most off-course conversations including fireworks, strippers, Suicide Girls, the Marilyn Manson “Dennys” incident, and we feature NYHC’s FULL SCALE RIOT in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!

Episode 358: Dark Removal

Under the threat of a tornado warning, we pulled off a stormer of a show… and between all three of us, we’ve got the entire spectrum of aggressive music in our back pocket. In our Creatures Feature this week, we’ve got the bases covered in both extreme metal and hardcore. First off we caught up with Season Of Mist death metallers BENIGHTED. Vocalist Julien Truchan was a real cool dude who was eager to chat about the band’s banner year, the hot chick on the cover of their Carnivore Sublime album, and what exactly is a “Benighted”. Winnipeg’s own hardcore bashers WITHDRAWAL are having a fantastic year themselves. The countdown to their latest A389 Recordings album is on. We spoke with axeman Adam right before they hit the stage supporting the mighty CRO-MAGS. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we piss on STONE SOUR, give a quick lesson in Le Français, and crank some cool tunes including GRUESOME, DEATHWISH, IN COLD BLOOD, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY and Atlanta black metalllers AMIDST THE WITHERING in our Indie Spotlight. Vive Le Heavy Metal!! Horns!

Episode 357: Album Autopsy – Raven’s All For One

Our interest in NWOBHM originals RAVEN goes as far back as our interest in Heavy Metal itself. All For One is the English power trio’s all important third album, which firmly put the band on the map and first got our attention as well. So this record is a prime candidate for inclusion in our ongoing Album Autopsy series. We tested vocalist/bassist/co-founder John Gallagher‘s memory as we dissected this album track-by-track, giving us the whys and wherefores  of each piece of metallic gold. Having waited thirty years to get Mr. Gallagher on the horn, we weren’t going to let him get away without sharing some stories from Raven’s illustrious history. We were particularly wowed by the origin of original drummer Rob  “Wacko” Hunter‘s  unique stage wear, playing for the Hell’s Angels, and taking a very young METALLICA out on their first tour. All For One… One For Us All!!

Episode 356: Vanquishing the Road

One of our favorite guests over the past three years has been drumming phenom Tamara Tadic. We intently followed this young lady’s development from YouTube sensation and a George Kollias (NILE) student, to full-blown road warrior, tearing it up with her band CONQUER DIVIDE. We caught up with Tamara and her bandmates in Florida to talk about their very first tour, getting advice from ASKING ALEXANDRIA, and their plans for the next twelve months. Be sure to check out their debut album later this year! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we pay tribute to former DEATH bassist Scott Clendenin and HARLEQUIN axeman Nik Rivers. We also voice our displeasure of ICP. Music wise,  we crank some MORBID ANGEL, TOMBS, MALIGNANCY, grindcore supergroup FULGORA, and FULL OF HELL. We also manage to squeeze in Florida Deathcore upstarts DEALEY PLAZA in our Extended Indie Spotlight. Horns Up!!
