Radioactive Metal 617: Happy Back In Black Day

Despite a number of pokers in the interview fires, we decided to forego all in favor of acknowledging a very important rock n roll milestone. As we sat down and pressed “record”, one of the most influential records for any genre celebrated it’s anniversary. AC/DC’s “Back in Black” turned the Big 4-0. So now’s the time to go over this monumental album discussing our own personal whys and wherefores, sharing…

Radioactive Metal 616: The Twitter Trap

No “Creature Feature” = no pro-blem-o! We may not have an interview subject to grill, but there’s still plenty of meat on this week’s bone to gnaw on.

Radioactive Metal 615: Spirit On Radio – interview with High Spirits

The story of Chicago rockers High Spirits is kind of unique. Led by the amazing Professor Black, the outfit doesn’t even really consider themselves Metal. They have their own self coined description of “high energy rock”. But they actually came to the attention of the underground via Hell’s Headbangers (??!!). So if they come recommended by the good folks at HH, then we’ve got to check ’em out. Bonus that…

Wrestling Night in Canada 008: Always a Bridesmaid…

With such a heavy duty episode last time, we were thrilled to lighten the load this time ’round. The Speaking Out movement gave way to a variety of other topics plaguing our great sport.

For our “Turnbuckle Talk’, we go over an…

Radioactive Metal 614: Hoof Fetish – interview with Cloven Hoof

We first discovered NWOBHMers Cloven Hoof as young ‘uns going Metal full time. The Hoof’s monicker and imagery convinced us to grab their ’84 debut sound unheard. W’ve been HoofHeads ever since.
