Two dudes, Dan and Jon, who are passionate about all kinds of music, although we mainly cover metal/metalcore bands on the show. We both LOVE vinyl, and podcasts in general.

Michael Wilton (QUEENSRYCHE) On Crowdfunding “We’ve Been Scarred By What’s Happened”

Queensryche have enjoyed a 30+ year long career that has seen many trends come and go, all the while remaining one of the more interesting heavy metal bands to emerge from the 80’s metal scene. 1988’s ‘Operation: Mindcrime’ cemented the band’s legacy of being a thinking mans band with their concept album that also brought them critical and commercial success.  ‘Empire’ would catapult to the mainstream on the back of their smash hit, Silent Lucidity, which would earn them a Grammy nod.  Amid some lineup changes, and legal issues Queensryche still gives the fans what they want, with their most recent release, 2019’s ‘The Verdict’, seeing the band firing on all cylinders and still playing to packed rooms.

Ryan Ober of LIGEA “Every Opportunity That We Got, We Ruined”

Massachusetts metalcore band Ligeia burst onto the scene in 2004 with their Ferret Records debut, Your Ghost Is A Gift, and toured relentlessly in support of it.  Known for a raucous live show, and a penchant for hard partying the band would use those experiences to pen their follow up album, Bad News.  With songs about breakups, drinking and other raunchy themes, the band would ultimately be their own worst enemies, with several lineup changes, the band broke up in 2009 only to reform in 2010 to put out 2011’s Welcome to Palm city, before breaking up again later that year.

NOTHING MORE Members on Incubus “They Definitely Lost Some Edge As Soon As Dirk Left The Band”

Texas rockers Nothing More have had quite the stranglehold on the active rock scene for the last few years.  Erupting on the scene with their uber catchy single “This Is The Time” (Ballast) in 2014 off the bands Self Titled album, the band hasn’t slowed down wining over fans with their aggressively heavy brand of hard rock, with emotive lyrics and penchant for saccharine choruses, and a stage show that has to be seen to be believed.

FIT FOR A KING Singer “Bands Just Don’t Wanna Bring Us On Tour Due To The Fact We’re A Christian Band”

Fit For A King have made a lot of noise since their early days of playing around the Dallas, TX area. No strangers to hard work, the band have impressively dropped five albums over the course of the last 7 years.  Their latest offering 2018’s Dark Skies, sees the band continue their ascension to the top of the metalcore scene and selling out shows across the nation.
