Episode 440: 10th Annual RAMMY Awards

December 30, 2016 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Heavy metal fans have the justified reputation for being the most passionate. So-called fans of many other genres have a “meh, whatever” attitude, and music gets relegated to background noise. Metal fans can have actual conversations about our beloved genre, as well as have a strong opinion (or three), especially this time of year. So as 2016 wraps up, it’s time to reminisce about the last 365 days of Heavy Metal! We at RAM have our […]

Episode 439: Ain’t No Funny Book

December 21, 2016 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Thrash legends SLAYER create the kind of art that can cross over into other avenues beyond the streets of Metaldom. Their controversial lyrics, imagery, and promo vids translate well to other media and the awesome Dark Horse Comics recognized that potential. Thus, “Slayer: Repentless” is born; a three part mini-series based on the promo vids of the namesake album. The man behind these pages of rage is no stranger to our beloved genre… Writer/Director Jon Schnepp was an […]

The legendary FLOTSAM AND JETSAM have had a banner year. A killer new album and tour has rejuvenated Metaldom’s interest in the band. The Arizona thrashers helped cap off our 2016 by returning to the RAM hot seat. Once again, we caught up with Michael Gilbert and Eric AK to discuss everything Flotz. They share a story from their latest tour in Belgium with DESTRUCTION, where their bus caught fire and where they averted physical confrontation at a convenience store with some hoodlums. We […]

We love it when our beloved worlds collide. Apart from being big dogs in the Heavy Metal yard, we also have a geeky side. We’re always on the prowl for unique Creature Features that have a love of our beloved genre. Comic artist/writer/publisher JIM BALENT is best known for his work on Catwoman, Batman, but most of all, his self-published Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose series. He’s also a huge KISS freak. It was a no-brainer to get him […]

Episode 436: Five Person Metal Punch

December 2, 2016 Roch Vaillancourt 0

2016 is the year that Napalm Records recording artists THE AGONIST proved they were the real deal. Still living with the stigma of being “the chick from Arch Enemy’s first band”, the Montreal metallers are having a banner year. They released kick ass record number 5 and are tearing it up supporting the mighty EPICA. In a long overdue Creature Feature, we finally caught up with axeman Danny Marino and vox Vicky Psarakis. We discussed the magic number 5, […]
