Episode 406: Girls Next Door

To our long time listeners, this isn’t our annual Snowy’s Angels episode where we focus on the lovely ladies of Metal. It’s just a happy accident that we happen to have a Double Feature Creature Feature with two young ladies fronting two awesome outfits. Death metallers ABNORMALITY have just released their Metal Blade debut. In a long overdue chat with vocalist Mallika Sundaramurthy, we discuss said debut, some mutual friends and side projects, and their upcoming tour with some legendary artists. On the other side of the extreme metal coin, Morgan Weller’s black metal project LUSTRAVI are releasing their Obscure Musick debut in a few days. She shared with us the beginnings of the band, her personal views on religion in general, and their future plans. For sure, these are the girls we always wanted next door. In our News, Views and Tunes, we trade stories regarding Record Store Day, the Manitoba Metalfest, and we give our two-cents on the BELPHEGOR incident in Russia. Musically, we crank the new Abnormality, Lustravi, CASTRATOR, the aforementioned Belphegor, and BEGRIME EXEMIOUS. Horns up!!

Episode 405: Woody And The Core Boys

Over the years, expressions and ideals have a tendency to change with the times. What may be a mainstay in the Metal vernacular thirty years ago, may mean something totally different today. Case in point – Metalcore. The mid-eighties had it’s own version in the form of Crossover: it was the melding of metal and punk to create its own sound and subgenre. One of the leaders of this rat pack is the mighty CORROSION OF CONFORMITY. In another bucket list moment, we sat down with COC original Woody Weatherman. We discussed the band’s very varied back catalogue, being a pissed off punk, and the renewed relevance of tunes like “Vote With A Bullet”. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we have a variety of animated discussions including our involvement with the Juno Awards (!), more of what Phil’s white wine hath wrought (!!), and apparently one of us is married to Glen Benton (!!!) Finally, we crank some old school COC, MOD, the new INVERLOCH, NY hardcore MANIPULATE, and some classic DARK ANGEL. Whew! Horns!!

Episode 404: No Crappy Bands Here

Brutal death metallers DYSENTERY have been on our radar for sometime now. Their home base Comatose Music does a great job in getting their brutality to the underground masses. But when we learned of guitarist Blue Spinazola’s connection to some mutual friends, that’s when we knew we had to get the dude on the horn. This was more of a casual chat than a formal interview. We discussed the response to their Fragments album, his live work with INTERNAL BLEEDING, and exactly what the word “dysentery” means. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss DEATH bobble heads, the DISTURBED/Dallas incident, and the Golden Girls??!! Musically, we crank some Dysentery, the new METAL CHURCH, Death, the new TOMBS, RAVENCULT, and MORTAL DECAY. Horns up!!

Episode 403: They Shall Conquer

Our conquering heroines have returned. The state of the game in 2016 dictates that young bands pretty much have to live on the road, not just for exposure, but for their very survival. So it was no surprise when Artery Records artists CONQUER DIVIDE returned to town in a relatively short time. We feel a special connection to this band, having been there from the start and supported them all through their plans of heavy music global domination. We sat down with Tamara, Janel, and Kiarely discussing writing the new album, life on the road, meeting excited fans, new bassist Ashley, marriage, SXSW, best/worst gigs ever, and future goals. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss Death Metal Pizza, our disdain for the MPAA and cash in our bragging rights on AXL/DC. Musically crank the Conquer Divide record, the new NECRONOMICON, AVULSED, CHELSEA GRIN, and feature NY’s ORDER OF THE DEAD in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!
