This week on GIMME METAL:
Nervosa Guest DJ Special – Newly staffed thrash metal powerhouse Nervosa have returned with Perpetual Chaos, out now via Napalm Records. Fronted by mainstay Diva Satanica’s powerful and aggressive vocals, Perpetual Chaos marks the beginning of a new era whilst also underlining their straight-forward lyricism and style: From political grievances and amplifying the voices of minorities to protesting against factory farming, capitalism, and succumbing to the ill-informed musings of social elites, these commanding women do not mince words. GIMME METAL is pleased to welcome guitarist Prika Amaral to the guest DJ seat this Tuesday! Don’t miss it!
Grayceon Guest DJ Special – Formed in 2005, this San Francisco trio have carved out a truly unique musical sound traversing the usual parameters of metal. Utilizing electric cello, guitar, and drums, the group has issued a series of incredible records via imprints like Profound Lore, Vendlus, and The Flenser, their latest being Mothers Weavers Vultures released late last year via Translation Loss. Screaming melodic lines over distinct guitar “chunk,” doom riffs, jazz chord progressions, intricate folk-like delicacies, and just about everything in between, Grayceon’s sound defies the boundaries of the metal/rock/progressive genres. GIMME is honored to have Grayceon host their first guest DJ show. Join them in the chat for great tunes, good fun, and in-show giveaways!
Horror Pain Gore Death Label Special – From its Philadelphia base, Horror Pain Gore Death has burrowed its bloody way into the temples of metal fiends worldwide, not just as a label but a distribution. Cradling and nurturing such beasts as Ruin, Hive, Ribspreader, Violent Opposition, Mausoleum, and most recently, releases from Coffins, Wintereve, a split with Serotonin Leakage and Charcuterie and so much more, Horror Pain Gore Death’s global assault continues in 2021. HPGD head Mike Juliano will man the GIMME DJ console, spinning two two solid hours or sordid odes. Tune in, dig into the catalog at horrorpaingoredeath.com and leave a tip in the bucket on your way out.
