Old school veterans rejoice! We’re totally stoked and honoured to have Matt Olivo, axeman of the legendary REPULSION, in our midst. New schoolers [sic], let’s see those horns as we feature Matt Olivo, guitarist behind the great new project EXPULSION! Mr. Olivo has teamed up with Matt Harvey (Exhumed, Gruesome) to form Metal’s new dynamic duo. Their debut EP Nightmare Future has given just that to mainstream society but pleasant dreams for modern day Metalheads. We get in depth with the new project and lots of Repulsion talk. Musically, we crank both outfits plus THE END and the awesome new RIVER BLACK! Horns!
One of the biggest buzzes in the heavy music underground is the awesome new record from INTEGRITY. Their new album Howling For The Nightmare Shall Consume marks the band’s Relapse Records debut, so this is an opportune time to finally get them on the horn. We were expecting to talk to mainman Dwid Hellion, but were pleasantly surprised to get new(ish) axeman Domenic Romeo on the other end. As the head honcho at A389 Recordings, Mr. Romeo’s past contributions to the genre are no strangers to our show and is a “Creature” we’ve been long overdue to “Feature”. We discussed the said awesome new record, hooking up with Relapse, and his past A389 activities. Sorry Dwid, we’ll catch you next time! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss the Chester Bennington situation and yack it up over the Revolver Magazine “25 Hottest Chicks…” issue. Finally we crank the new Integrity, OCTOBER 31, and some live SCOUR. Horns!
Canadian crusty grinders FLASH OUT may not be on the tip of the brain of the majority of extreme Metallers. That tide should turn soon enough as they’re pounding the pavement more than ever to get the underground’s attention. To Live A Lie Records picked up their latest EP then took their act on the road. Upon their return home, we caught up with boys at their jam space as they spilt their guts. We discussed the aforementioned Death Dealer EP and all the debauchery at the recent Maryland Death Fest. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we share war stories on the live front and crank some wicked tunes from Flash Out, the new ABORTED, DESPISE YOU and KING DIAMOND! Horns!!
Seeing as we’re hardly professional musicians, we can’t even begin to imagine all that goes on in prepping a month long national trek. The night before hitting the road must be frantic to say the least. So we’re especially grateful for this week’s Creature Feature. Mere hours before their nationwide terrorization (thank you, Hank Rollins), bassist/vocalist Luca Indrio of Bay Area deathsters NECROT took some time to share his thoughts on the most exciting time of his career. We spoke of the new Tank Crimes top priority album “Blood Offerings”, the Bay Area today, and an update on his other project VASTUM! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss our adventures at Universal Studios and bash the Jenner sisters clothing line. Musically, we crank said Necrot record, the new GOATWHORE, BROKEN HOPE, UNDERGANG, GOD DETHRONED and some classic MORTUARY! Horns Up!!
Recently, Canadian thrash legends ANNIHILATOR made metal history with their first tour of their native soil in roughly 25 years. As stoked as we were to hear some old faves live, Montreal metallers MUTANK must be stoked many times over being able to share the stage with them. We’re embarrassed to say that Mutank only got on our radar upon this tour announcement. Horns down to us for that as they have a fantastic tale to tell. A tale that vox/bassist Stephan Reynolds and axeman Costa Skoulikas were more than eager to share. We discussed said tour, working with producer Topon Das (he of FUCK THE FACTS fame), and most importantly, their winning the 2014 Wacken Metal Battle!! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we go over some upcoming releases and get salty over ARCH ENEMY. Musically we crank the latest Mutank and Annihilator, the new DYING FETUS, CANNABIS CORPSE, FORSAKEN RITE, and introduce Brazil’s NEKROKULT in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!
