MONASTERIES frontman JOSH DAVIES joins us with a special preview of two tracks from the UK extreme metallers' mindblowing new EP SILENCE, released Friday 23rd April 2021, and very patiently answers my noob questions about how to death growl without dying, and how many feet his drummer really has.
STONESIDE lyricist and frontman CRANE joins us to preview the Texan alt-metal duo's debut single HISTORY OF VIOLENCE and tells us the extraoridinary story story of the band's origins, his musical inspiration and convening with the dead. NOT TO BE MISSED.
RICHEY from FURROWED BROW joins us to listen to both sides of the band's new single PUNCTUAL PUNK and THE NARRATIVE OF HUGH GORDON PYM as well as talk about pared-back drumming, the punk ethos and his favourite flavour of ice-cream. Cover photo by Jimi McDonald.
HUNTED BY ELEPHANTS are a four-piece from London who play real rock n roll, reminiscent of LED ZEPPELIN, DEEP PURPLE and BLACK SABBATH.
