I made it back alive from my ‘stay-cation’ in Saint John house sitting my Brother’s place. Thanks to Steve ‘The Buzz Man’ Dunnett for filling in for me on Episode #73!
Episode #74 had a bunch of great new tunes! Dischord was in town Friday night for their CD release party with Hero’s Last Rite and Spinesplitter. We played an interview that Roger Jean and I did the morning of their show at the Capital and talked to Luc Gagne about ‘Epitaph’ their 3 song EP they released in Janurary. Since the EP is only about 20minutes in length, we played the whole thang! ‘Epitaph’ a 3 song EP about the rise of ‘Communism’ in Russia is certainly a step up for Dischord a band well known in the Atlantic provinces for their Extreme Thrash Metal sound that includes the vocals in what I call ‘Demonic Harmonies’. Make sure you grab a copy where ever you can find the EP!
The Wasteland Zombies let loose their rerecorded version of ‘Spread Your Wings’. The song originally recorded in 1994 and part of the bands album ‘The Town Fair’ was rerecorded at Underground Alliances studios with Jake Duffie at the helm. The band will be playing THIS Friday, February 5th at the Charlotte Street Arts Center with the debut of Fredericton’s newest ‘Punk’ band ‘Winter’s Howl. The bill also includes ‘Blueprints’ who’ll be playing new material and ‘Siegebreaker’ who also just recorded with Jake Duffie and will be playing new material including a brand new song never played live. Show starts at 7PM and Cover is only: $5!! Help support your local Metal scene and if you can’t make it yourself, then I know all the bands would very much appreciate it if you shared the event on Facebook.
In Hour II we had a special ‘South of the Border’ feature. Local sludge Metal masters ‘Hard Charger’ just returned from playing a slew of dates in Mexico and so we started off Hour II with a track from them and then we played some tracks from a couple of the bands they played with on their Mexican tour and also I played some cuts from 3 albums that Ciaron Lewis of Neighborhood Watch fame, brought back from his working trip to Mexico.
