This week on GIMME METAL Radio:

Deafheaven Guest DJ Special – For the past ten years, the seminal San Francisco metal band Deafheaven has been driven by evolution and innovation within themselves and their respective genres. With their Infinite Granite full-length recently released via Sargent House, the band embarks on a new chapter of defiant beauty. Utilizing an ethereality and atmosphere of heightened emotion via more sublime and cerebral avenues, Deafheaven is quite different here, yet no less overpowering. Infinite Granite is a dazzling display, taking the listener into new terrain with a combination of George Clarke’s unfettered vocals and the distinct blackgaze sound that sends them to the stratosphere. GIMME is very pleased to welcome guitarist Shiv Mehra and drummer Daniel Tracy to the DJ seat this week. Be sure to join them in the chat!

Ruin Guest DJ Special: Spawned in California circa 1991, Ruin’s filthy vortex of death metal history ebbs and flows through lineup shifts, a short hiatus in 2015, and a healthy amount of EPs and LPs over the past six years. This past August the band released their punishing Spread Plague Death full-length on Nameless Grave confirming that they are very much in top shelf diseased/spirited form. Help GIMME welcome vocalist Mike Abominator for a DJ takeover this Wednesday.

Power Trip: GIMME METAL Vinyl Club + Interview Special – When Nightmare Logic, Power Trip’s second and final LP arrived in 2017, it continued to raise the bar for the band’s undeniable knockout style of modern thrash, cut short by the untimely passing of vocalist Riley Gale. Top media outlets like Rolling Stone, Revolver, Vice, and Alternative Press lauded Nightmare Logic as one of the smartest and most crucial releases to spawn from the metal and punk scenes with Loudwire naming it album of the year. GIMME METAL is honored to reissue this album on nuclear green vinyl for this month’s GIMME METAL Vinyl Club edition. Visit and order your limited copy now. And tune in for GIMME‘s Power Trip special on Friday, September 10th 3:00pm ET / 12:00 pm PT to revisit some of Gale’s interviews from The Power Remains with Randy Blythe and GIMME 5 with Jim Santanella as well as GIMME‘s visit with the band at the Decibel Los Angeles edition of the Metal And Beer Fest (2018).
