Episode 463: The Mutant Tank

June 30, 2017 Roch Vaillancourt 0

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 […]

So what’s in a name? You’ve started a band. You got all your ducks in a row and now all you need is a kick ass name. Your monicker is the first and main representation of your band.

GTS’ awesome brand of hardcore/metal crossover blew us away. After […]

This story is an old one told many, many times on this show. Band comes through town. Band kicks big ass. Band appears on kick ass radio show. Prosthetic Records recording artists PSYCROPTIC are terrorizing the nation with a fistful of other cool, brutal metal bands. Their stop in our neck of the woods gave us a perfect opportunity to speak with vox Jason Peppiatt (Pep to his buddies). Pep gave us the 411 on their latest s/t […]

John Joseph literally wrote the book on NY (worldwide, actually) hardcore. Mr. Joseph has a rich, storied career fronting the mighty CRO-MAGS and influenced a generation of Punks and Metalheads alike. But these days, the man is focusing his attention on his other band (don’t call it a side project) BLOODCLOT. About to tour their new Metal Blade record Up In Arms, we got on the horn with John. He was excited to talk about the history and the […]
