Before our interviews for 2017 start to kick in, we have the chance to kick back and just kick it. We had a plan going into today’s episode but once we pressed the record button, the fit hit the shan and we turned it into a free for all of topics and tunes. One topic being METALLICA having 5 out of 10 of this year’s top selling records lit a fire and various conversations involving gateway bands and what constitutes a ballad were discussed. Pinterest also raked us over the coals and we came to the conclusion that we have very different ideas of what “graphic” means. Finally we crank some EXUMER, DESASTER, SURGIKILL, some good CELTIC FROST, and some not so good Celtic Frost . Horns Up!!
The end of the year can be a slow period for the citizens of Metaldom. The new releases are in the books and the live scene slows down to celebrate the holidays with friends and family. We here at RAM have our own busy schedules as well, so this time of year, we usually find ourselves without a Creature Feature. But keep the faith, Beautiful MFers: we got a lot on our minds and a fistful of Metal to start 2017. We speak about the Kanye/TESTAMENT t-shirt fiasco, a local controversy on the CARNIFEX tour, and what’s to come with the new LIFE OF AGONY record. Oh, and a little GOGMAGOG talk??!! We laughed, we cried! Musically, we crank some faves from ’16 including SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, PROFANATICA, DESPISED ICON, SUPERJOINT, and some classics from DVC and SORTILÈGE! Horns!!
