Rivers Of Nihil Guest DJ SpecialGIMME METAL welcomes Rivers Of Nihil drummer Jared Klein for a guest DJ special. Rivers Of Nihil stormed out of Reading, Pennsylvania immediately slaughtering spectators with their specialized brand of technical death metal on bills with the likes of Misery Index, Suffocation, and Dying Fetus. They’ve remained true to form through their career. GIMME METAL will be celebrating the recent re-release of their excellent Monarchy LP available in stunning color variants via Metal Blade Records.

No Clean Singing Site Guest DJ Special – Since 2009, the No Clean Singing site has been an invaluable source for your extreme metal needs. Ad-free, focused on positive reviews with a special ear towards the international scenes, the site brings together the extreme metal community with vanguard taste and style. Welcome founder Islander plus staffers Andy Synn and DGR who will offer up some of their favorite sounds on GIMME METAL this Wednesday. Check out in the meantime!

Armored Saint Guest DJ Special – Legendary heavy metal trailblazers Armored Saint are taking over GIMME METAL! Their eighth full-length, Punching The Sky, is out October 23rd via Metal Blade Records. Staring down a four-decade anniversary, the band’s place in the metal scene is again firmly reestablished with their 2020 return, and you can join Joey Vera and John Bush for a very special guest DJ special. All tipjar proceeds go to benefit Crew Nation, Live Nation’s fund for sidelined concert workers.

Trivium Guest DJ Special – Trivium’s Matt Heafy will be hosting a black metal themed show. Formed in Orlando in 1999, Trivium’s inimitable hybrid of melodic death, metalcore, and thrash quickly gained a reputation on the world stage. The band toured with heroes like Metallica and Iron Maiden, created an immense cache of international fandom and powered their way through nine studio albums, the latest being What The Dead Men Say. During lockdown, they’ve continued their mastery of live streaming events, and we’re extremely excited that frontman Matt Heafy has taken the mic for a guest special at GIMME, where he’ll be socking us with an aggressive playlist of underground and known faves. Don’t miss this special event! Heafy will be in the chat for the second hour.

Enslaved Guest DJ Special GIMME METAL honors Enslaved’s third return to the guest DJ console, this time with Grutle Kjellson. Enslaved are titans of Norwegian progressive black/viking metal celebrating the October release of their fifteenth album, Utgard, on Nuclear Blast. It’s been three years since the band released their critically-lauded E full-length which earned a Grammy equivalent Spellemann Award in Norway and high praise around the world. Utgard is, without a doubt, one of the year’s most anticipated metal records by fans and critics alike. Welcome Kjellson and welcome back, Enslaved!
