Evildead Guest DJ Special – Evildead was forged in 1987, thrashing onto their first bill in Long Beach, California with Cryptic Slaughter, Dark Angel, and Possessed. Their debut EP Rise Above — which included a cover of the Black Flag anthem “Rise Above” — unleashed a blend of speed and thrash metal guitar riffs along with hyper drumming locked in with an over-the-top, thundering bass with punk-infused overtones, all punctuated by lyrical themes about social and political issues, nuclear war, and horror. The band disbanded in 1992 with members pursuing other projects. A 2009 regroup featured original drummer Rob Alaniz, along with original guitarist Juan Garcia (Body Count), original bassist Mel Sanchez, and lead guitarist Albert Gonzales with Steve Nelson handling the vocal duties in place of original vocalist Phil Flores. They signed to SPV/Steamhammer for their brand new release, United $tate$ Of Anarchy which boasts nine studio tracks plus a metalized rendition of “Planet Claire” by the B-52s. To celebrate the return of Evildead, GIMME welcomes Juan Garcia to the DJ console for a very special episode.
My Dying Bride Guest DJ Special – No rest for one of Britain’s most melancholic exports: Just half a year after My Dying Bride returned from their break with their haunting and successful masterpiece The Ghost Of Orion, the kindred of Yorkshire raise the curtains to the Macabre Cabaret, out now on Nuclear Blast. The EP offers three new psalms (plus a hidden gem on the physical editions) – dark luscious death doom ear candies that will thrust listeners into a sensual world of darkness and temptation and conceal the borders between sweet pain and destructive illusion. GIMME METAL welcomes vocalist Aaron Stainthorpe, who will be in the chat for the first airing of his guest DJ special.
Raven Guest DJ Special – A return! UK metal godfathers Raven went from pub gigs in the ’70s in Newcastle opening for the likes of the Stranglers to becoming pure cornerstones of the NWOBHM movement, taking Metallica on their first tour in 1983, and being an undeniable source of inspiration for a who’s who roster of metal’s greatest acts. The band’s highly-energized live show and interaction between band members developed an image and style of play-the-band, described as “athletic.’ They began wearing guards, helmets, and plates from various sports (hockey, baseball, etc.), and incorporating them into the playing of their instruments. Raven has steadily toured and released albums throughout their storied career, including the latest full-length, Metal City, released earlier this Fall on SPV. To celebrate, founding bassist/vocalist John Gallagher takes over the GIMME deck for what’s sure to be an amazing block of music and memories.
