  • Episode 327: Our Friend in Misery - Misery Signals interview: 08/29/14
    Doing anything successfully for a decade is worth commemorating. Marriages and jobs immediately spring to mind but in Metaldom, when a band reaches the Big 1-0, that's when we sit up and take notice. Metalcore masters MISERY SIGNALS are out tearing it up on tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of their debut record "Malice And The Magnum Heart". Their headlining set consists of playing the entire record, mostly to a new generation of Metalheads. Founding axeman Ryan Morgan was beaming over his outfit's accomplishment as we discussed said record, tour, and their place in the Metal world. Here's to ten more glorious years! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we get stoked for the new activity in the NUCLEAR ASSAULT camp, pay tribute to a horror icon, and crank some Misery Signals, SUICIDE SILENCE, WHITECHAPEL, BENIGHTED, and Detroit's DOWNCAST in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 326: Two Trve Dudes: 08/15/14
    Metaldom is it's own little world, an isolated island unto itself. Quite typically the indigenous inhabitants of these special areas will have their own language and terminologies. Over the years, Heavy Metal fans have developed many of their own expressions and words including classics like "poser" and more modern fare like "cvlt". Here we take the time out to dissect these colorful words that make up the bulk of the Heavy Metal vernacular. In our News, Views, and Tunes we gush over the new Death To All tour announcement and crank some COLUMNS, SCATTERBRAIN, KING OF ASGARD, and introduce Canadian metallers IRONSTORM in our Indie Spotlight. So dont be a poser and get the Horns Up!!!

  • Episode 325: Caveman Style - Primitive Man interview: 08/8/14
    One of the beauties of Heavy Metal is that it elicits a variety of emotions and reactions. It can make you ponder the world around you and simultaneously act as an escape from the very same world. But sometimes, it just brings out the neanderthal buried deep within us all. Relapse recording artists PRIMITIVE MAN literally named themselves after this concept. We recently had an interesting chat with the band which eventually turned into one of our patented parking lot interviews. The Primitive Ones spoke about the meaning behind their monicker, their NSFW promo video, and why they disliked Indianapolis(!??!). In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss us some HANK3, this whole BABYMETAL thingy, and pay tribute to another fallen rock n' roll legend. Musically, we crank some the new PATHOLOGY, CROSS EXAMINATION, ALICE COOPER, and introduce Pennsylvanian sludge grinders SECRET CUTTER in our Indie Spotlight. Horns Up!!!

  • Episode 324: Opening the Gates of Hell: 08/1/14
    All great things, not only in pop culture but with life in general, have a great beginning. Whether it be a hilarious teaser for your fave sitcom or that magical first date in a exciting new romance. Heavy Metal has got the whole "Grand Opening" thingy done to a science in a variety of manners. The undergrpound is ripe with weird/scary/atmospheric/goofy intros which frequently acts as first song side one. Of course nothing sounds more musically delicious than a killer riff that sticks in your brain. RAM was there when the intro phenom started so we're sure to have an opinion or a hundred. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we celebrate one of our own elected into a presidential office and do our kind of "Intros" with Canadian metallers UNTIL DAWN on our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!

  • Episode 323: Home Boys - Necronomicon interview: 07/25/14
    We're back after our second brief hiatus of the summer. We spent some time returning home, visiting family and friends. It's a happy accident that one of our hometown heroes recently blew through town too! The last 365 days have been banner for Canadian thrash and bashers NECRONOMICON. Still soaring high off their latest "Rise Of The Elder Ones" opus, they snagged a primo slot on the "Conquerors Of The World" tour. Vocalist/axeman Rob The Witch was stoked to finally get a chance to speak with us. Our conversation will entertain and inform. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we trade some war stories, go back to school, crank some Necronomicon, BAPTISTS, D.D.T., THE RAMONES, and say farewall to a punk rock original. Horns!!

  • Episode 322: That Comic Book Guy - Kurt Amacker interview: 07/11/14
    Comic book writer KURT AMACKER has a strong Heavy Metal connection. Mr. Amacker is a bona fide Metalhead who has many titles to his credit but most notably has co-written a graphic novel with none other than Dani Filth (Cradle of Filth: The Curse of Venus Aversa). For his second appearance on RAM, we discuss his latest Kickstarter campaign for Dead Souls: Resurrection. The nerd in us just had to get the word out there. In our News, Views, and Tunes we discuss burning tour buses, sex with A.T.M.s (!!), and we crank some CRADLE OF FILTH, SEPTICFLESH, GOATWHORE, and TUFF. Horns up!!

  • Episode 321: Wreckin' Havok - Havok interview: 07/4/14
    Scratch another off the list. It's no secret that RAM is fully immersed in the new generation of metalheads who proudly display their love and pay homage to the old guard. HAVOK are true veterans now, with an amazing decade under their studded belts. With their latest masterpiece "Unnatural Selection" celebrating it's first birthday, the boys blew through town and gave us a moment. Axeman Reece Scruggs and skinsman Pete Webber let us in on their change from Candlelight, discuss their rather unique place in our own local metal scene, and we put them to the test on other "havocs". In our News, Views, and Tunes, we celebrate the Canadian government dropping their B.S. international artist tax, crank some Havok, EXMORTUS, ENVISION, ABORTION AUTOPSY, and pay tribute to the immortal Casey Kasem.

  • Episode 320: Verb The Noun - Silence the Messenger interview: 06/18/14
    Heavy Metal is an art form composed of many different styles and flavors. The musical taste buds of the younger generation have taken to the flavor of modern Deathcore. It's a sound not too far removed from the current interpretation of metalcore, just with more of a death metal influence. Currently making the rounds is Texas Stand By Records recording artists SILENCE THE MESSENGER. In town supporting the might Sworn Enemy, they gave us a few moments of their time. We discussed the whos, whats, and whys of the band, their own take on the deathcore movement, and the mythology/meaning behind their "Achilles" album. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we go over all this "core" business, the Exodus vocalist situation, and crank some STM, EXODUS, EXHUMED, DEF LEPPARD, and the new GRUESOME project. Horns!!

  • Episode 319: Good Friends, Sworn Enemy - interview: 06/13/14
    For over two decades, the mighty SWORN ENEMY have been a staple in the underground Metal scene and are legends in the NYHC scene. After a five year recording hiatus, mainstay frontman Sal Lococo is back fronting a stable line up and released one mutha of a new record. While in town recently supporting "Living On Borrowed Time", we caught up with not one, not two, but all five Sworn Enemies. We discussed the record, the band, the scene, and even got in some sports trash talkin'. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank the new record, NAILS, SUICIDE CITY, introduce Portland psychedelic doom deathsters TAURUS in our Indie Spotlight and say goodbye to a Bay Area original.

  • Episode 318: Dos and Don'ts: 06/6/14
    The live front is the life's blood of our beloved genre. Attending live concerts is a metalhead's fave pastime. While heavy metal is rebellious in nature, there are some simple codes of common sense and courtesies we must keep in mind while partaking the evening's revelry. Some are for the safety of our brethren, but there are other concert rituals and goings-on that just make us shake our heads. Now with the summer concert schedule in full swing, it's time to give our two cents on the whole she-bang. One band we can't wait to experience live is Texas metallers DEAD EARTH POLITICS, who we feature in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!

  • Episode 317: Hear Them Roar!! - Floor Jansen Interview (Nightwish / Revamp): 05/30/14
    With the summer months creeping up, RAM has it's own way of bringing the heat. Every year, we take some time to celebrate the not always fairer sex of our beloved genre. For many years the role of women in Heavy Metal was relegated to disinterested girlfriends and groupies present for backstage antics. With each passing year though, the role of "metal chix" get more and more prevalent in some ways even usurping their male counterparts. Our double feature "Creature Feature" represents two generations of Metal. Floor Jansen is best known as the new voice of NIGHTWISH but it's her own project REVAMP that's blowing us away. Touring for an awesome new record, we caught up with Ms Jansen to discuss Revamp, her last whirlwind year with Nightwish, and taking on the challenge of fronting bands. It was also a happy accident that we ran into Robin Mazen, bassist of the mighty DERKETA. Her Unholiness is a heavy metal trailblazer and a true Metal Queen. We discussed Derketa's impact and influence on death metal and reminisced about the glory days. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we conduct our traditional "Snowy's Angels Hall Of Fame" inductions and crank some wicked tunes from Izegrim, Lacuna Coil, Theatre Of Tragedy, Epica, One-Eyed Doll, the aforementioned Revamp and Derketa, and the immortal 45 Grave.

  • Episode 316: Sabaton Bloody Sabaton - Sabaton Interview: 05/23/14
    This is an old story that the citizens of Metaldom never tire of. Band comes to town/Band decimates town/Headbangers of town go home thoroughly impressed. Admittedly despite their stature in the Metal world, Swedish powerhouse SABATON were barely on our radar. Their recent stint supporting ICED EARTH had us regretting the error of our ways. On the day of the release of their new record "Heroes", we sat down with bassist/founder Par Sundstorm. He let us in on the new record, their ongoing relationship with producer Peter Tagtgren, and winning over that tough Iron Maiden audience. True Metal Heroes indeed. In our News, Views and Tunes, we pay tribute to artist H.R. Giger, discuss the latest in the Tim Lambesis situation, a quick talk on censorship, crank the new Sabaton, TRIPTYKON, Iced Earth, and introduce Ohio tech deathsters LOCUSTA in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 315: Not Your Mama's Gardening - Psychotic Gardening interview: 05/16/14
    The majority of Metaldom will know Chuck Labossiere for his short stint handling the vocals last year on BROKEN HOPE's tour. Chuck has been a staple in the Canadian death metal underground for more than twenty years. His main project, PSYCHOTIC GARDENING, have just released their fourth killer record "Hymnosis". On the night of the release party, we sat down with Chuck and raging axeman Andrew Wiens to discuss their unique monicker, the new album, and his story with Broken Hope. This is definitely not your Mama's gardening. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank the new Psychotic record, the new DEATH reissue, CANNIBAL CORPSE, reminisce about the HEAR N' AID project, go off on scene spoilers, and we introduce Italian bashers KLOGR in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 314: Nasty Little Rumors: 05/9/14
    Despite finding ourselves Creature Featureless this week, the Metal world still provided us with enough fodder to keep our lips flapping. Controversy within the camp of veteran black metallers INQUISITION coincided with their spot on the Metal Alliance tour. Adding fuel to the fire was their inability to cross the Canadian border, throwing metallers north of the 49th into a tizzy. We also straighten out all the QUEENSRYCHE legal crap, discuss RAM's role of glorified roadie at Metal Alliance, and pay tribute to hardcore legend Joe Young of ANTISEEN. Musically, we make it up to Metaldom by cranking some said Inquisition and Antiseen, the brilliant new SINBREED record, and introduce death thrashers ENDLESS CHAOS in Indie Spotlight. Horns!!

  • Episode 313: All That Black Jazz - Shining interview: 05/2/14
    Our introduction to Norway's SHINING was one of those happy accidents. Supporting the mighty Dillinger Escape Plan, we had the opportunity to catch up with the band, thinking at first that they were a different Shining (the infamous Swedish black metal band). But we got so much more and so much better. This Shining are a musical island unto themselves, masters of the self coined Black Jazz. Jorgen Munkeby is a multi instrument maestro (axe, sax, flute) and an amazing frontman. We discussed the concept behind the band, what exactly is Black jazz, and that other Shining. This dude can really rock the sax. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we announce the Summer Slaughter tour, crank the new Pretty Maids record, some classic Discharge and Lamb Of God, and we introduce England's ONE FOR SORROW in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 312: Spanish For Panther: 04/25/14
    A long standing tradition here at RAM are the special Artist Spotlight episodes. At an appropriate time, we like to focus our attentions and energies on a particular artist/band. Believe it or not, PANTERA's "Far Beyond Driven" celebrates it's 20th anniversary this year. With our fresh third voice in tow, we discover the interest and influence of Texas' finest crosses generations. We discuss all the Pantera whys and wherefores, our musical faves, get into the multitude of side projects and offshoots, and wether or not the first four pre-"Cowboys" records actually count. Re...

  • Episode 311: A Kataklysmic Event - Kataklysm interview: 04/18/14
    Hailing from the Great White North, you'd think nailing down the hyperblast originators KATAKLYSM would be relatively easy. For one reason or another, our paths had yet to cross. With a cool new(ish) record and a brutal tour in full swing, we were more determined than ever to get them in our Creature Feature hotseat. Axeman Jean-Francois Dagenais is a real veteran dating back to those cherished demo tape trading days. We discussed their latest recorded output, the longevity of the band, and we share our mutual love of SACRED REICH. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank some Kataklysm, tourmates ABORTED, the aforementioned S.R., go all fan boy for the original EXCITER lineup reunion, and introduce British rocker DANIEL TRIGGER in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 310: Fit Hits The Shan: 04/11/14
    To paraphrase a wise man - "We're out of it for a little while and everybody gets delusions of grandeur." Geek moments aside, life caught up to us recently and we found ourselves with an unplanned week off. Of course that's when the fit hit the shan with a variety of incidents and tragedies that has the streets of Metaldom all abuzz. Now we find ourselves with the pleasure of having to play catch up. To assist us with this Herculean task we enlist the services of Metalchicksrock.com's Coreen Jansen and welcome her to the RAM family. We discuss the recent goings on in the ARCH ENEMY camp, review the Mayhem tour line up, discuss the Metal relevent portions of The Juno Awards, and pay tribute to the immortal Dave Brockie a.k.a. Oderus Urungus. Musically we crank some aforementioned AE, BROKEN HOPE, UNTIMELY DEMISE, PANTERA, and GWAR!!!!

  • Episode 309: Hometown Heroes - Gorguts interview: 04/4/14
    The 2014 edition of the Decibel Magazine Tour is in full swing. Not to be outdone by the reunited Carcass, Canadian vets GORGUTS are themselves on a comeback of sorts and are slaying at every stop. The tour kick off was in Orlando, FL and the 'Guts meister Luc Lemay himself was happy to make the occasion extra special. We talked about the Junos, writing for a string quartet, and the early days of of the band. Making this a double shot of Gore and Guts, original co-founding member Carlo Gozzi takes a seat in the guest host throne for an exclusive chat! Mr. Gozzi gives us the 411 on the pre-"Considered Dead" debut daze and we're reminded just how close Metaldom could really be. Double Horns Up to our hometown heroes!!

  • Cast Iron Ring Special: Tribute to Oderus Urungus: 03/26/14
    With the passing of Dave Brockie, Metal has lost one of its most entertaining, colorful, and well-known faces. A lot of us at the Cast Iron Ring have had the pleasure of speaking to Dave and Oderus over the last few years. He was always generous, kind, and he made you laugh without fail. Assembled here is a collection of interviews from 2010-2013 that showcases Dave's passion and humor. Special thanks to all our brothers at Focus On Metal, Iron City Rocks, and Radioactive Metal.

  • Episode 308: Tear or Tire - Tyr interview: 03/22/14
    Sometimes we're not the sharpest studs on the wristband. Viking metallers TYR's monicker seems easy enough. It's only three letters, for Dio's sake. Is it "tear" or "tire"?!? We decided to take it to the person who would know best. Tyr recently blew through town and axeman Terji Skibenæs was gracious enough for a moment of his time. We discuss their new "Valkyrja" album, their new relationship with Metal Blade, and the contributors that made this record a platter that matters. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank the new CARNIFEX, some classic MACABRE, reminisce about our first trip to the strip bar, and go off on the new QUEEN tour. Most importantly, we introduce Montreal's TRAINWRECK ARCHITECT in our Indie Spotlight. Horns up and, BTW, it's pronounced "tear".

  • Episode 307: Definitely Not Bored - Death Angel interview: 03/14/14
    It literally took Bay Area legends DEATH ANGEL decades to get to Winnipeg last year. Now they come visit every few months. Awesome artists like DA could never overstay their welcome though. In town for the third time in two years (supporting Children Of Bodom), axemaster Ted Aguilar was eager to speak with us again. We discussed the concept behind "The Dream Calls For Blood" album, landing on Billboard, and their tribute to the immortal RJD. Too cool!

    The live front is where our beloved Heavy Metal really shines. Hosting an internet radio show gets us backstage to hang with our fave bands, but that's the here and now. We all have our fave artists plying their trade on tour and it's always fun to reminisce about awesome tours gone by. We take this time to discuss personally significant tours from yesteryear and shine our roles within. Some of our friends wanted to join in on the fun, namely Scott and Richie from Focus On Metal. Even Ms. Roch got in on it! We also have a very special guest who weighs in on it too. Horns Up!!!

  • Episode 305: The Hatriot Act - Steve 'Zetro' Souza interview: 02/27/14
    With the first handful of episodes of 2014, we found ourselves Creature Feature-less. Now once again we find all the awesome artists lining up to be a part of our humble little show. We couldn't think of a better way to kick off the festivities than with a chat with a legendary figure. Steve 'Zetro' Souza tore up the 80s as frontman for the almighty EXODUS. In recent years, Zetro has returned to Metaldom with his own project HATRIOT. With the new record "Dawn Of A New Centurion" added to his already impressive resume, the man was eager to sit down with us once again to discuss the new record, his rather unique voice, delve into some current social issues and the immortal Jeff Hanneman. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we announce this year's Paganfest, discuss new KISS HoF drama, and crank the new Hatriot, some classic Exodus, and labelmates STORM WARRIOR. Horns!!

  • Episode 304: Valentine's Day Massacre: 02/21/14
    It's that time of year again. Generally Metalheads couldn't give a flying frakk about Valentine's Day... It's a special day for the ladies (for guys it's just guaranteed action) so for that we like to celebrate the occasion with our own twisted little spin on it by cranking some of the most un-Valentine sonic assaults we could imagine. So take some time out from wining and dining (and whatever else may come) and enjoy some THE EXPLOITED, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, MOTIONLESS IN WHITE, DOYLE, ABORTION AUTOPSY, ASS TO MOUTH, KONKHRA, CHUNK! NO CAPTAIN CHUNK!, CHATEAUX, and ANAL PENETRATION (it's just not V-Day without it). And since it's all about the ladies today, how about some Snowy's Angels with IZEGRIM, ABNORMALITY, THE DONNAS, ONE-EYED DOLL, and the BUTCHER BABIES?

    More so than any other genre, Metalheads are very passionate about their artists and subgenres. Inevitably, this passion comes out even during simple conversations amongst ourselves going over our fave bands, albums, live show, etc. You know, the important stuff in life. But every Metalhead is a unique individual with their own unique individual opinions and tastes and sometimes a "you vs. me" mentality will come out. With true veteran Metalheads like us at the helm, it was only a matter of time before we went one on one, all in good fun of course. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we go over the recent "Metal/Hard Music" nominations at this years Juno Awards and crank some SEVENDUST, SHIN TO SHIN, and AVATARIUM. We'll call this one a draw.

  • Episode 302: Metalmorphisis: 02/7/14
    A lot can change in twenty years. Most importantly, time and experience will be bringing knowledge and wisdom. Superficially, twenty years can also bring about a lot change physically as well. Zakk Wylde recently celebrated his 25th anniversary rockin' the main drags through Metaldom. You'd hardly recognize the Dude from his Ozzy debut. Some of Wylde's contemporaries have undergone a similiar metalmorphisis as well, inspiring a topic most would probably take for granted. What did you Beautiful MFers look like twenty years ago? In our News, Views, and Tunes, we have the unfortunate task of announcing a tragedy in our own backyard. Musically we crank some NAPALM DEATH, ANTHRAX, JOEL GRIND, the INDIAN record, and introduce Jersey black metallers FORLORN PATH in our Indie Spotlight. Horns!!!

  • Episode 301: Unholy Trinity: Slayer: 02/2/14
    There's a variety of expressions and adages involving the number three: good things come in threes, third time's the charm, etc. Of course the opposite can also be in effect and the not-so-good also has a tendency to happen in threes. In the Metal world, when an artist has a substantial discography, most records can be hit or miss. In what we're hoping to be a semi-regular feature, we're going to dissect these vast discogs picking our Holy and Unholy Trinities. The mighty Slayer's body of recorded output has had a polarizing effect on fans. Metalheads have loved certain albums with every fiber of their being, but also have lit up message boards with buckets of hateful venom over others. This is a topic guaranteed to spark controversial conversations. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we say goodbye to an impact player behind the Century Media scenes and introduce Arizona hardcore act AMERICAN STANDARDS in our Indie Spotlight. Can't wait for their first six albums. Horns!!

    2014 is off and running here at the RAM offices with our first big Creature Feature. With our native country and the North Eastern U.S. of A buried in ice and snow, doom and gloomsters WINDHAND provide the perfect soundtrack to those cold winter nights. Supporting the mighty High On Fire, we caught up with bassist Parker Chandler, skinsman Ryan Wolfe, and Snowy's Angel vox Dorthea Cottrell to discuss their band, sound, and just WTF with thirty minute songs. Musically we crank the new(ish) Windhand record "Soma", the returning PYREXIA, and some OCEANO, LORD DYING, and OBLITERATION. In our News, Views, and Tunes, seeing as it's the new year, we discuss some resolutions both personally and professionally, inspiring an interesting conversation regarding the future value of vinyl.

  • Episode 299: 2013 Rammy Awards: 01/19/14
    Another year is in the books and a new one is well under way. As the clock strikes midnight on December 31st, it's traditionally a time of reflection on the past 365 days. We here at Radioactive Metal like to use this time to focus our attention on the goings-on in Metaldom over the past year. Since everyone loves a parade, we certainly have our own way of doing it. Thus our annual Rammy Awards: kind of our own take on the Grammy Awards, we discuss our faves in the various categories that are important to Metal Heads including fave band, album, song, live show, news story, and most importantly our Snowy's Angel Of The Year (meaning the lovely Ladies of Metal). We also take a few minutes to induct some favorites into the Radioactive Metal Hall Of Fame. But what's a New Years Eve party without good friends? Our returning buddy Robert from Twin Cities Metal was more than thrilled to sit in and grace us with his 2,000,000,000 cents on the matter. Horns Up to 2014, you Beautiful MFers!

    Happy New year, you Beautiful MFers! We kick off the 2014 festivities with a little Chi-Town heat to warm those cold winter months. Chicago doom vets TROUBLE have a long and storied history which guitarist Rick Wartell shared with us earlier last year. Now we are stoked to bring the rest of the story with THE SKULL. Comprised of original members Eric Wagner and Jeff Olson as well as long-time bassist Ron Holzner, you could say that they're the heart and soul of their old band. This chat was easily one of our favorites as we discussed their upcoming 2014 tour, new music in the works, and their first TV experience as young Troublemakers. In our News, Views, and Tuness, we give a shoutout to our homies in UNTIMELY DEMISE who will be touring Europe on Canada's dime (!!) and we stay in Chicago to introduce IMMORTAL BIRD In our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 297: Parking Lot Noise - Noisem and Skeletonwitch interviews: 01/10/14
    NOISEM are fine examples of Heavy Metal's young guns. We mean that literally. But despite not having any legal aged members, these Baltimore death thrashers have garnered more experience in their few short years than most artists will accumulate in their entire careers. To promote their kick ass debut "Agony Defined", these youngsters know the value of the road. On their recent tour stop in town, all five members joined us for one of our patented parking lot chats. Taking these upstarts under their wings are veteran bashers SKELETONWITCH. Skinbasher Dustin Boltjes joined us in the same parking lot to discuss their new "Serpents Unleashed" album, artist John Baizley, and mascot SkeletonMitch. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we discuss the Spitz family domestic situation, KISS in the HOF, and applaud a recent strike in the war against front row texting. Horns Up!!!

    We realize that a majority of the troo, cvlt, diehard, hardcore metalheads don't really give a flying fvck about Christmas. Still, around the RAM offices, we like to acknowledge the holiday in our own demented way. A major highlight of 2013 was death meisters DYING FETUS' nationwide terrorization. We caught up with drummer Trey Williams to discuss their brilliant "Reign Supreme" record, his pre-Fetal days, and life in general in one of Death Metal's crowning jewels. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank out some musical holiday fear courtesy of KING DIAMOND, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED, TOTALLY PISSED OFF, Hate Eternal's J.J.

  • Episode 295: Reading Blood - D.X. Ferris interview: 12/20/13
    No doubt this has happened to everyone: after displaying a decent amount of knowledge on a particular topic someone will eventually say "Ya know, you should write a book". Obviously that was said to author and Slayer fanatic D.X. FERRIS once too often, so he did. "Slayer 66 & 2/3: The Jeff and Dave Years" is an impressive tome covering the band from the beginning, all the way to just months ago. Always going down as many different avenues to help promote Metal, we got The Dude on the horn discussing his early work, how the book wrote itself, and our mutual love of SLAYER! In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank some SLAYER (of course!) and introduce Holland's industrial death metallers EMPIRE OF THE SCOURGED. Horns up!!!

  • Episode 294: Matt Metal - Exhumed interview: 12/13/13
    2013 is proving to be a banner year for death meisters EXHUMED. Mr. Matt Harvey exhumed his musical labor of love last year to a rather ravenous audience. Not one to rest on any laurels though, this year's "Necrocracy" is a strong Record Of The Year contender and the band is killing it on the road. No stranger to this show, Mr. Harvey was stoked to sit down with us again for a fantastic discussion about the new record. We also see another side of this amazing man not always connected to Death Metal. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank some brand spanking new Exhumed, IRON REAGAN, HOODED MENACE, we bitch about the over use of certain words in Metal, get psyched about the 2014 Decibel Mag tour, and introduce Scotland's BECKON in our Indie Spotlight.

    Move over Carlos!! There is a new sheriff named Santana in town. As opposed to badges and pistols though, this new strong arm of the law in Metaldom carries an axe and amp and ready to shred. HOLY GRAIL are total road warriors and it now has become a RAM tradition for guitarist Eli Santana to join us whenever his band is in town.The dude shares some major highlights, pushes the new record, and we question the relevancy of the "Trad Metal" prefix. In our News, Views and Tunes, we have a rousing discussion inspired by the recent questionable actions by some of our Metal cohorts and we crank Holy Grail's new "Ride The Void" album, some NECROPHOBIC, TWILIGHT OF THE GODS, and THEE PLAGUE OF GENTLEMEN.

    Even though our beloved Metal has a whole whacka (yes, that's an official unit of volume, dammit) sub genres, sometimes a new(ish) outfit will catch our attention and defy category. Season Of Mist/War On Music recording artists ANCIIENTS are developing a strong cult following the world over. But are they doom metal? Prog? Stoner? At the end of the day it's all just good tunes. We recently hung out with The Anciient Ones discussing the sights and sounds of their "Heart Of Oak" record, our mutal love of pro wrestling, and just what's up with the double "ii". All the better to see you with, our Beautiful MFers. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank the awesome new Onslaught record, some new Baroness, Anvil, and introduce Edmonton hardcore upstarts LUCID SKIES in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 291: Iron Reaganomics - Iron Reagan and Reign of Lies interview: 11/22/13
    Some stuff just never gets old. Our beloved genre has many tried and true subject matters: death, war, and good ol' sex, drugs, and rock n' roll. But it's not all fun and games though. Aggressive music shows it's dark side when the lyrics delve into the socially and politically aware. Rock's most recent target was the Bush Administration. Well, "when I was your age" we had Ronald Reagan. Municipal Waste are a relatively young band. Certainly Rotten Ronnie's reign of terror was well before their time. So what a pleasant surprise to find Waster's Tony Foresta and LandPhil's side project IRON REAGAN inspired by the "Great Communicator" in all the right ways. While in town supporting Gwar, we caught up with this band outta time discussing the idea behind the project, their A389 Recordings record label, and what's up in the Municipal camp. Let's win one for "The Gipper". In our News, Views, and Tunes, we crank some Waste, give the horns for Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein's new project, and in an extended Indie Spotlight, we give some mic time to thrashers REIGN OF LIES.

    Not to date ourselves, but we here at RAM are definitely children of the 80s. We're at that magic age to have been there/seen that for just about everything. As much as we love it loud, mad, and thrashin', we also have a soft spot for the late 70s/early 80s AOR scene. A major part of that scene was the great White North's HONEYMOON SUITE. Their brand of 80s heyday rock n' roll captured the attention of the MTV generation and are still going strong today. With an excited Mrs. White in tow, we caught up with Honeymooners vox Johnnie Dee and axeman Derry Grehan right before they rocked the stage. Armed with a storied history, they discussed the Suite life then and now and their recent musical charity work. In our News , Views, and Tunes, we discuss the highs and lows of Slayer's recent stopover and attempt to impress our guests with a slice of modern metal with Edmonton's ALL ELSE FAILS in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 289: Board Knobs and Tomb Sticks - Eyal Levi interview (Audiohammer Studios): 11/9/13
    Behind every great Metal record is an even greater Metal dude busting his butt to make a great record sound even greater. Record producers are the unsung heroes of our beloved genre. Sure, it takes a talented band to make our fave tunes. But it takes an equally talented producer with a grand vision and keen ear to bring that music out for our listening pleasure. AUDIOHAMMER STUDIOS is a major player in the industry. One of the mainmen turning the knobs is producer EYAL LEVI. Mr. Levi first caught our attention swinging the axe for DAATH and now produces some our fave albums and artists. Always on the lookout for unique ideas and guests, we pulled him away from his knobs and dials long enough to discuss his online classes, his career as a musician, and his work at the studio. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we bitch about cancelled tours and the BROKEN HOPE soap opera. We crank some BH, SIX FEET UNDER, BATTLECROSS, and introduce Spain's CORELYN in our Indie Spotlight.

  • Episode 288: Twin Sons, Different Mothers: 11/1/13
    Heavy metal fans for the most part are more than just a bunch of people who have something superficial in common. Heavy Metal is a brotherhood, a kinship, something you just don't get in any other genre of music. With that said, we just love making new friends within our beloved genre and there's no better way than sitting down and discussing Heavy Metal. TWIN CITIES METAL is a weblog based out of Minnesota U.S.A. that has a local focus but a flavor for Metaldom as a whole. Blogmaster Robert was cool enough to give us some time from his busy schedule and talk (Metal) shop. After giving us the 411 on his blog, we discussed as much Metal as possible including our recent Exhumed experiences, what we've been cranking lately, and just how much we eerily have in common. Hey, yacking about Metal is something we would've been doing anyway... might as well press "record" first. Horns Up!!

    In keeping with the Halloween spirit, we continue our stroll down The Dark Side of Heavy Street and Metal Avenue. A consistent passer by seems to be British goth/black/thrash metallers CRADLE OF FILTH. Having already conquered the worlds of music and cinema, The Filthy Ones are ready to attack the fine art of the comic book. Being geeks ourselves, this caught our attention. We caught up with writer KURT AMACKER and discussed "Cradle of Filth: The Curse of Venus Aversa", the Kickstarter Project and perks, and why CoF polarize people so much . We also found ourselves in a celebratory mood as Canadian thrashers UNTIMELY DEMISE return to town for the record release party of their latest platter "Systematic Eradication". Great record, Boys!

What better way to celebrate the Dark Side of our beloved genre than crank a cauldron full of Black Metal and introduce Metaldom to a brand new act. Canuck black metallers DIRE OMEN recently signed onto Dark Descent Records and are poised to kick Old Scratch himself off the throne. When we caught up with the band, they gave us the 411 and we put them to the test with other "Omen" trivia.

    The "Whys and Wherefores" of the starting point of Death Metal will always be subjective. It's a safe bet though that Canada's truest entrance into the Death realm was with the discovery of Quebec's GORGUTS. Founded by mastermind Luc Lemay, Gorguts has ruled the Canadian roost for over two decades with no sign of relenting. Promoting their brilliant new record "Colored Sands", we recently caught up with Mr. Lemay at the fabled Noctis Festival. We discussed the beautiful but intricate concept behind the record, the band's killer new line up, their Season Of Mist label, and add confusion to the word "color" (or is it "colour"?). Musically, we kick off the Halloween season we some GHOUL, ENTRAILS, EXHUMED, DEVOURMENT, GENERAL SURGERY and introduce Canuck tech-death thrashers ENTITY in our Indie Spotlight. French Horns Up!!!

    Road trip!!! A rite of passage in every (not so) young man's life. With the announcement of the 2013 Noctis Festival and Expo to be headlined by the mighty Carcass, we knew we had to make the trip. Hitching a ride with our family members Evil Survives, Wilt and of course, the War On Music Record Label and Shop, we set off for a long weekend of Heavy Metal debauchery and mayhem. Our rag tag caravan returned home battered and bruised but with smiles all around. Apart from rockin' out to some bucket list performances (Girlschool, Possessed, Exciter, the aforementioned Carcass), we shmoozed with a bevy of interesting industry types. And the after parties will go down as stuff of legend. But what happens at Noctis... stays at Noctis. What we can report is highlighted by our sit down with veteran thrashers SACRIFICE. They gave us the once over of decades both on and off the stage. We're already counting down the days til next year. Horns Up!!!

Clad in their Sunday Best, FGA have been terrorizing the nation when we caught up with lead vox/axeman Tommaso Riccardi. Looking very different from his stage persona, Mr. Riccardi gives us his word on their new Nuclear Blast recording "Labyrinth", the origins of their unique tuxedo gimmick, and what's to come in the Fleshgod camp. Such nice guys even your Mom would approve... until they start playing.

We spoke to some of the best bands around today and captured some photographic evidence of the greatness. All the while trying to soak in as much as possible. Now the fruits of our labour can be shared with all of Metaldom. The artists we spoke with are in three distinct points in their careers. BIOHAZARD mainman/ATTIKA 7's Evan Seinfeld has earned his legendary status. CHILDREN OF BODOM's Roope Latvala is a veteran currently ruling the Metal roost. And the BUTCHER BABIES are young guns ablazin', ready to storm the next level. Each offer their view from their corner of the world. In our News, Views, and Tunes, we mourn the loss of Eyehategod drummer Joey LaCaze and we take the Canadian government to task. Three Horns Up!!!

  • Episode 279: Instrumetal - The Aristocrats interview: 08/29/13
    "We'll let the music do the talking" is an old rock n' roll cliche. A small percentage of bands mean it literally, doing away with the idea of vocals and do what we call "instrumetal". With emphasis resting solely on instrumentation, these artists truly allow their abilities to shine. The sub-genre also seems to attract a higher calibre of talent as well. Prog/fusion rock trio THE ARISTOCRATS are a fine example. Individually, they have shared time with Steve Vai, Kreator, Necrophagist, and 80s AOR supergroup Asia. Collectively, they're a fascinating interview. Musically, we crank The 'Crats and fellow instrumetal breathren ELECTRO QUARTERSTAFF, MAHOGANY HEAD GRENADE, EAGLE CLAW and feature UK thrashers REZINWOLF in our Indie Spotlight. All this making it one of those times to keep our ears open and mouths shut. Horns Up!!
