Today, we debut a new series: Album Autopsy! We take an influential and/or chart topping album and talk about every step it took to make it. Then we talk about every track, discussing lyrics, sounds, and everything that makes a song great. Our first subject is TROUBLE‘s genre-setting album Psalm 9. Released in 1984, this album has been influencing Doom Metal artists for 30 years. To help us celebrate this landmark album, we invited not one, not two, but three of it’s main architects! Joining us for this once-in-a-lifetime discussion is vocalist Eric Wagner, drummer Jeff Olson, and producer Bill Metoyer! The guys tell us stories about writing the songs, car accidents, and hanging out with Scott Baio! This is truly a must listen for fans of Trouble and Doom Metal! But the past is not the only thing we discuss: Eric and Jeff tell us about the new album they just released on TeePee Records with their new band THE SKULL. And Bill tells us about one of his latest projects, producing D.R.I.‘s first album in 20 years. In the Indie Spotlight, we introduce sludge/doomsters GALE from Phoenix, AZ. Horns up!
