Episode 471: Blood of Gwar

September 15, 2017 Roch Vaillancourt 0

In 2014, the Metal World lost of one of the all time greats in Oderus Urungus of the mighty GWAR. There’s no way Mr. Urungus would want the blood to stop there, but those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Fortunately, “The Berzerker” Blothar was up for the challenge. With a kick ass new record and tour ready to rock, we caught up with the man himself. We got into the blood n’ guts […]

Episode 463: The Mutant Tank

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 […]

This week’s Creature Feature is an example of one of heavy music’s great joys. Quebec City’s hardcore crossover thrashers GET THE SHOT came through town in a supporting role. We pride ourselves on having a tight grip on the extreme music scene, but we have to admit that GTS totally escaped our notice. When we saw this band on the bill, we did our homework and… Wow! GTS’ awesome brand of hardcore/metal crossover blew us away. After […]

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 […]

Episode 457: Krull Island

May 19, 2017 Roch Vaillancourt 0

Symphonic metallers LEAVES’ EYES could very much be considered Metal’s answer to Beauty And The Beast. Alexander Krull played a major role in the early 90s during the Roadrunner-led era of death metal, while he was fronting the legendary ATROCITY. In an attempt to expand their musical horizons, the thrashers morphed into the very different Leaves’ Eyes while keeping their much heavier alter ego active. Now armed with a new kickass EP and new(ish) vocalist in the operatic […]
