On Episode #108 starts off with a thundering brand new track from Fredericton’s ‘Hero’s Last Rite’ – ‘Nothing Left’ is the single released on their bandcamp page. It’s been a good wait for new material from the Hero’s crew and as they say, ‘Good things come to those who wait’. But ‘Nothing Left’ is the tip of the iceberg.
HLR’s vocalist Steven McDonald sat down with me in the studio to discuss the tracks we debuted and the making of the album and the bands upcoming plans. When this album hits the streets it’s going to raise the bar once again and as I said in a post on Facebook, this only helps the scene as each band will strive harder to be as good or aim to be better (HA!) than Hero’s Last Rite. Be sure to check out the podcast as until May 5th, it’s the only place you are going to hear ‘Devil Finger’ and the title track ‘Wasted Prayer’. Hero’s has done it again!
I also debuted ‘Warsick’s’ Tomorrow. Hoping to get the band on the Crazy Train in the near future!
Episode 109 will be a vinyl special as it’s Record Store Day, so I’ll be spinning as much Metal on vinyl as i can get my hands on. Plus I’ll be airing portions of Johnny James Dio’s interivews with ‘Voltang’ and ‘Between the Buried & Me’.

668 Charlotte St. – Scene: April 21, 2017; late morning.

The Grindhouse will rise from the ashes to be rocked to the ground!
