Next Week’s Great Upcoming Shows on GIMME:
Mayhem: Premieres Tuesday, April 7th at 1:00pm EST/10:00am PST – Users of GIMME need no introduction to Norwegian black metal forefathers Mayhem, their fabled past and present reinforcing their status as one of the true founders of the genre. Due to the derailing of their anticipated US tour under the Decibel Magazine umbrella, GIMME has invited the band to produce a special for our listeners to help offset the losses in tour planning, promotion, and merch. Please welcome guitarist Teloch, entrenched in the Mayhem universe since 2011 and also an important past cog in such units as Gorgoroth, 1349, Nidingr, Orcustus, and Igorrr! Teloch rips through some playlist faves and hangs in the chat for the initial airing of this program.
Prog To The Edge: Premieres Tuesday, April 7th at 7:00pm EST/4:00pm PST – Roie Avin, editor and founder of The Prog Report, is an avid progressive rock fan and has years of experience working in the music industry. Avin is the host of The Prog Report podcast as well as co-host of Yes’ Cruise To The Edge. In 2017, he authored the book Essential Modern Progressive Rock Albums, focusing on prog albums released from 1990-2016. He has been a contributor to UK music magazine Prog and has appeared on SiriusXM shows – Trunk Nation with Eddie Trunk and Feedback on the Volume channel. Prog To The Edge explores the heavy and diverse side of prog, focusing on the early influencers of progressive metal to the bands carrying the torch in the modern era.
Benighted: Premieres Friday, April 10th 3:00pm EST/12:00pm PST – France’s Benighted aligns their horrorcore/deathgrind overload with delightful tales of cannibalism, slice-n-dice nightmares, and oedipal issues, but add contemporary twists and off-the-brand fascination musically (i.e. they cover Slipknot’s “Get This”). Spawned from the darkest crevices of the human psyche, the band is poised to unleash perverse new offering Obscene Repressed April 10th on Season Of Mist. Horror and metal have always had a harmonious marriage, but Benighted takes this cultural fusion to the next level, delivering a riveting and demented story unlike anything before. No Stephen King novel nor Wes Craven film could ever compare to the sick horrors buried inside this brutal opus. Coinciding with the release of the record, vocalist Julien Truchan will be in the guest DJ chair that day.
