Episode 510: Twisted Mister

June 29, 2018 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Far and away, our most frequent guest over the years has been veteran metaller Matt Harvey. Putting aside that he’s a helluva guy and has become a good friend of the show, his multiple inclusions are justified as he’s seemingly the busiest dude in Metal. He has cemented his status with the mighty EXHUMED, his EXPULSION project wowed the underground, and his most recent release is the ultra awesome album “Twisted Prayers” by DEATH-worshippers GRUESOME. We got on the horn with Matt […]

Episode 509: Godsmackdown!

When we got tapped to speak to US hard rockers GODSMACK, we got excited. We thought “Yeah, it’ll be cool to talk to Sully.” But when we were informed we’d be speaking with skinsman Shannon Larkin, we got really excited!! Our interest in Mr. Larkin’s work goes way back to the early days of WRATHCHILD AMERICA. We followed him through his stints in UGLY KID JOE and AMEN and now right up to his current tenure with Godsmack. So we had […]

Episode 506: Magical Metal Dust

US heavy hitters SEVENDUST are a rock n’ roll survival story. A product (or victim) of the era, the band was unjustifiably lumped into the whole “nu” metal thing. But now, more than two decades later, Sevendust is still going strong while most of their counterparts disappeared or became irrelevant. Their new opus “All I See Is War” is still fresh on the new release rack. It’s a killer record that proves why they’ve maintained their position. […]

We recently had the pleasure of having Norwegian symphonic goth metallers SIRENIA come thru our neck of the woods. Still promoting their latest record, “Dim Days Of Dolor”, this marked the first time the band has graced us with their presence. The mainman behind the music is axe/keysman Morten Veland . Being Scandinavian, he felt geographically at least, right at home ’round here so he was eager to chat all things Sirenia. We discussed the “discovery” of […]

Episode 501: No Bone Unearthed

California death metallers SKELETAL REMAINS are making big strides in their quest to bring the Metal to the masses. That all important 3rd album, “Devouring Mortality”, just hit the new release rack. It’s a key album that finds them stepping up a notch, as it marks their debut on Dark Descent (and Century Media) Records. Once again amongst the chaos of The Manitoba Metalfest, we caught our breath with axe/vox Chris Monroy, Adrian Obregon (guitar), and bassist […]
