This week on GIMME METAL Radio:

Spirit Adrift Guest DJ Special – Phoenix, Arizona’s Spirit Adrift is a band who refuse to slow down. On the heels of their latest album, Enlightened In Eternity, guitarist/vocalist Nathan Garrett alongside drummer Marcus Bryant will issue their Forge Your Future EP via Century Media on August 20th. A former regular on the GIMME METAL masthead, Garrett returns for another guest DJ special. Few bands synergize the powers of hard rock, doom, and psychedelia into such a crushingly heavy monument to the timelessness of heavy metal. JoinGarrett in the Live Chat and New York City residents, be sure to catch Spirit Adrift with High On Fire and October 20th and 21st at Le Poisson Rouge.

Between The Lines w/ Paul Riedl from Blood Incantation – This episode of Between The Live spotlights Blood Incantation’s 2016 opus Starspawn, an epic frenzy of technical/ambient/funereal death metal at its ultimate finest. It’s also GIMME METAL‘s Vinyl Club pick for September. The GIMME METAL exclusive comes in transparent red/yellow galaxy vinyl offering. Order yours at and tune in as Between The Lines host Jim Santanella talks at length with Blood Incantation’s Paul Riedl!

High Tone Son Of A Bitch Guest DJ Special – Originally formed by brothers Paul and Andrew Kott from the ashes of Oakland prog/doom sludge masters Cruevo, and preceding the Matt Pike-fronted Bay Area metal “supergroup” Kalas, High Tone Son Of A Bitch (HTSOB) is a “supergroup” unto itself. Since its founding, the band has pulled together members and collaborators from likes of Noothgrush, Kalas, Hammers Of Misfortune, Men Of Porn, Melvins, Hawkwind, Neurosis, High On Fire, Sleep, Necrot, The Skull, Worshipper, and more. When Andrew Kott passed away unexpectedly in a tragic fall in 2007, HTSOB disbanded — seemingly forever. Paul allowed his brother’s inspiration to live on however, eventually reviving the band and carrying the psychedelic hard rock and post-doom vision of HTSOB forward. The band’s newest EP, Wicked Threads, is out now, and GIMME is pleased to welcome the band back to the console.

High Tone Son Of A Bitch x GIMME METAL Facebook Live Event + Mega Giveaway – As if that isn’t reason enough to get stoked, GIMME METAL will be hosting a special High Tone Son Of A Bitch Facebook Live Event. GIMME will be streaming set two of High Tone Son Of A Bitch’s Live At The Hallowed Halls Saturday August 14th right after this radio special!
