This week on GIMME METAL Radio:
The Slaughterhouse w/ Rob Thorne (Sacred Oath) + Charlotte Wessels – Vocalist/guitarist Rob Thorne of Connecticut power/thrash harbingers Sacred Oath pays a visit to the Slaughterhouse to extol the virtues of the band’s ninth full-length album, Return Of The Dragon. While sticking to the power/thrash template for which they’re known, the power thrash veterans offer up their most varied album of their career. Additionally, Charlotte Wessels checks in to discuss the newest chapter in her sonic journey. Wessels, a Dutch singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist best known as the former lead vocalist for the Dutch symphonic metal band Delain, will release her Tales From Six Feet Under full-length this September. Captured in her home studio — aptly monikered “Six Feet Under” — the record is an electrifying collection with gems ranging from melancholic indie pop to synth-infused rock and includes Wessels’ rendition of goth classic “Cry Little Sister,” as well as a beautiful synergy of the stunning voices of Wessels and Arch Enemy’s Alissa White-Gluz on “Lizzie” and so much more.
Autopsy Guest DJ Special – GIMME METAL welcomes Autopsy co-founding vocalist/drummer Chris Reifert to his third guest DJ takeover! 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 the 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.
Mastiff Guest DJ Special – UK five-piece Mastiff will release their Leave Me The Ashes Of The Earth full-length September 10th via eOne and in celebration of the impending release, GIMME METAL is pleased to welcome them to their first ever guest DJ special! The band’s unique combination of blackened sludge, grindcore, and powerviolence creates a bleak and chaotic atmosphere, sounding as if the spawn of Crowbar, This Is Hell, and Napalm Death composed an album inside the Lake Of Fire. The unrelenting, brutish curmudgeon aura of Mastiff can be deceptive however, as bright sparks of nuance and jarring adventurousness lurk behind every riff, rumble, and anguished, painstaking bellow stitching together a soundtrack suitable for betrayal, depression, self-loathing, and total despair, with winking, devilish glee. Don’t miss what’s sure to be a soul crushing episode and be sure to join the band in the Live Chat!
