Alien Weaponry Guest DJ Special: Since releasing their acclaimed debut TÅ« (2018), New Zealand’s Alien Weaponry’s kinetic presence and sound – combining elements of thrash and groove metal with lyrics in the native indigenous language, te reo MÄori – has attracted throngs of fans and media supporters across the globe. In addition to amassing millions of cross-platform streams and YouTube views, the band was recently hailed the “future of metal” by Metal Hammer, and was voted by Revolver Magazine fans as “one of the bands most likely to break out in 2021.” Their latest full-length, Tangaroa, released September 17th via Napalm Records, will undoubtedly elevate their international reputation. Join them for a GIMME METAL takeover!
Fucked Up Guest DJ Special: Fucked Up – Damian Abraham (vocals), Mike Haliechuk (guitars, vocals), Josh Zucker (guitar), Ben Cook (guitars, vocals), Sandy Miranda (bass), and Jonah Falco (drums, vocals) – is among the most prolific hardcore punk bands of our generation. Since their 2001 inception, they’ve challenged listeners with thoughtful artful chaos and a seemingly limitless drive for musical experimentation. Because of this, they’ve also become a record collector’s worst nightmare releasing over eighty recordings and collaborations on countless labels that include Deranged, Havoc, Tankcrimes, Deathwish, Matador, Jade Tree, and more. The band won the 2009 Polaris Music Prize for their second studio album, The Chemistry Of Common Life among countless other accolades over the last two decades. The band’s storied history includes trashed MTV sets, concept rock operas, soundtracks, a twelve-hour concert with guest stars in their set, joining forces with Keith Morris, and even playing a festival of all Fuck-related monickered bands in a town called Fucking, Austria. Their adherence to primal punk ideology and musical application of genres most punk bands don’t absorb is underlined by them being the nicest folks in the world. GIMME METAL is very stoked to welcome the band for a special guest DJ set.
Bangers And Mosh Guest DJ Special: Bangers & Mosh is a UK based metal podcast hosted by best mates and lifelong metal fans Jimi, Dazz, and Defa. Their ethos: to cover the best in new and upcoming bands as well as pay homage to established legends of the scene. You’ll find monthly round ups of the best new albums, fun feature shows as well as interviews with special guests from all corners of the world of metal…Join the gang for their second GIMME METAL guest DJ special.
Autopsy Guest DJ Special: Autopsy formed in 1987 in San Francisco, and was among the early breed of death metal bands to emerge, releasing four albums on Peaceville before disbanding in 1995. After a fifteen-year hiatus, Autopsy officially returned from the grave with 2010’s The Tomb Within EP. This was followed by the release of the band’s fifth studio album, Macabre Eternal one year later, spearheading a resurgence of the legends with multiple subsequent albums and EPs. Autopsy recently released Live In Chicago, their first ever official live album. Recorded at Reggie’s Rock Club March 7th, 2020, the record boasts 66 minutes of classics spanning the band’s 30+ year career. Live In Chicago also includes brand new track “Maggots In The Mirror,” giving fans something to chew on while the impending next studio release takes shape. In the meantime, GIMME welcomes co-founding vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert for his fourth guest DJ run!
Green Lung Guest DJ Special: GIMME HQ is excited for Green Lung’s forthcoming full-length Black Harvest, coming this October via Svart Records. Picking up where the self-released Woodland Rites left off, on Black Harvest, Green Lung continues to draw inspiration from Britain’s rich history of folklore, from witchcraft, and from cult horror films. Nature – as always – is woven into the fabric of the songs; this time the album was recorded in late Autumn and the seasonal atmosphere seeped into the music, which is redolent of mists, falling leaves, and the crumbling glory of the Magnificent Seven cemeteries of London, the city the band calls home. Join the band October 2nd as they helm the GIMME METAL console.
