This week on GIMME METAL:
Deceased Guest DJ Special – Deceased’s founding mainman King Fowley is a metal lifer, and one who’s escaped death on multiple occasions (see his autobiography Stay Ugly for one rollercoaster ride of rock history). A truly respected warrior in the world of metal and a larger-than-life character, GIMME METAL is honored to have Fowley back in the DJ seat. Deceased released an all-covers record called Rotten To The Core 2 (The Nightmare Continues) this past summer. Hear the band’s take on everything from the Buzzcocks to Cryptic Slaughter to Die Kreuzen. All hail King Fowley! And please utilize the tip jar to help all our musical friends sidelined from touring activity.
Smoulder Guest DJ Special – Toronto’s Smoulder play a triumphant hybrid of epic power doom and traditional metal in the vein of Tales Of Medusa, Solitude Aeternus, Manilla Road, and early Blind Guardian. Fantastical heroes yielding mystic swords and arcane sorcery await… The band’s latest LP Dream Quest Ends is out now on Cruz Del Sur. GIMME METAL welcomes back vocalist Sarah Ann for what she promises to be a special laden with the very best in epic, trad, speed, doom, and power metal. Tune in for a chance to win a copy of Dream Quest Ends during the in-show giveaway!
Heggvegr with Maria & Johan Hegg – Heggvegr: the way of the Heggs in old Norse. Join Johan and Maria Hegg as they try to walk a sustainable path for themselves and for the planet, as there is no planet B. For that path to be lasting and enjoyable to walk of course, it’s paved by rock, metal, and perhaps something primordial. Heggvegr will continue to air sporadically throughout the upcoming year. GIMME listeners can also hear Johan’s past archived shows on his own with Hammer Of The North show and Maria’s Mind Of Metal show. Also, tipjar proceeds on Heggvegr will benefit sidelined road crews: roadierelief.org.
Tribulation Guest DJ Special – Sweden’s Tribulation have never colored neatly within the lines, consistently defying genre constructs with their singular brand of thrash/death. Seamlessly utilizing elements from all ends of the metal spectrum from prog to black metal to straightforward Motörhead-style stomping, the band’s latest full-length, Where The Bloom Becomes Sound out now on Metal Blade Records, indisputably elevates the Swedes to the highest echelons. Where The Gloom Becomes Sound isn’t representative of monumental change, but rather the accrual of ambition over time in conjunction with continued exposure to and profound experiments with crossroads devilry. Being their most expressive and inventive album to-date, where it will take them is only to greatness and with reverence. Singer Johannes Andersson joins GIMME METAL this Friday for a well stocked radio show of prime metal history past and present!
Werewolves Guest DJ Special – Australian death metal trio Werewolves feature within its ranks Dave Haley (Psycroptic, Ruins, King), Matt Wilcock, and Sam Bean (both of The Bezerker, The Antichrist Imperium). The band’s latest full-length, What A Time To Be Alive recently released by Prosthetic Records, steps boldly deeper into the mix of black and death metal and makes plenty good on their threat to leave uninhabitable salted earth in the extreme metal scene. Join Werewolves this Friday for what promises to be a punishing episode and don’t miss out on a chance to win a copy of What A Time To Be Alive!
