Episode 473: The Varg Effect

September 29, 2017 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Apart from our good looks and charm, RAM is best known for our kick ass Creature Features. Sometimes though, there’s enough going on in the Metal World that we feel we should forego our usual segments and concentrate on the task at hand. Case in point, the Metal News has been monopolized lately by the recent DECAPITATED situation and the Tim Lambesis controversy from a few years ago. Now is an opportune and necessary time to discuss […]

There’s a lot going on in THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER camp right now. Their new kick ass record Nightbringers is just around the corner, not to mention headlining a star studded tour across the nation.

Generally when covering a veteran, or “classic” hard rock/heavy metal band, the frontman ends up monopolizing the majority of the attention. But there could also be up to five other guys in that same band, with five different stories to tell. New York hardcore vet Tim McMurtrie is probably most known for slinging the axe in the early days of M.O.D. He was on the seminal USA For MOD record,  which cemented his place in hard […]
