Episode 419: Album Autopsy – Destruction’s Sentence of Death EP

July 29, 2016 Roch Vaillancourt 0

In the early 80s, a new underground genre of aggressive heavy metal was being carefully crafted by the angry youth. Most fans believe that it was mainly happening in the USA but unbeknownst to them,  the same thing was happening in Germany. Hailing from a small town on the Swiss/German border, DESTRUCTION was honing their craft and knocking on doors of record labels. Joining us in this Album Autopsy, metal legend Schmier reminisces about the early days of the band.

Last week’s legendary guests VENOM (Inc) are effectively  considered to be the first black metal band. Their influence is still being felt today, with case in point being this week’s Creature Feature. We caught up once again with ceremonial black metallers LUSTRAVI. Fresh off the release of their debut on Obscure Musick (Cult Of The Blackened Veil), they came to town for an opening set. We caught up with vox/bassist Morgan Weller and axeman Geoff McWhorter after the performance and discussed the […]

Let the joyous celebrations of Hell begin!! Straight up… if  VENOM never existed, then there would be no RAM. The legendary black metal trailblazers are a game changing outfit.

But now Satan’s favorite trio has split into two factions, as have a number of other bands over the years. Original vocalist/bassist Cronos is waving the Venom […]

Episode 415: Album Autopsy – Flotsam & Jetsam’s Doomsday for the Deceiver

July 1, 2016 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Back in 1986, a lot of fantastic thrash was being released. It seemed like there was a never ending supply. One of the best releases that year was FLOTSAM & JETSAM‘s Doomsday for the Deceiver. It’s the only album to ever score 6K’s on Kerrang Magazine‘s rating system. Thirty years later, it still holds up with the best of them. To celebrate this landmark anniversary, we invited guitarist Michael Gilbert and vocalist Eric AK to discuss the […]
