Enjoy!…

Radioactive Metal 608: Angus Who? – interview with ACXDC

During the 80s “Satanic Panic”, a certain Australian hard rock band came under fire for their monicker. Fast forward years later and California powerviolencers ACXDC took the concept and ran with it. We got stoked when the grinders signed on with Prosthetic Records and jumped at the opportunity to speak with vocalist Sergio Amalfitano. At that very moment the new album “Satan Is King” was being put out on the…

Wrestling Night in Canada 004: Piledriver – The Episode

The worlds of pro wrestling and heavy music have always been close bedfellows.
