Radioactive Metal 510: Twisted Mister

Far and away, our most frequent guest over the years has been veteran metaller Matt Harvey. Putting aside that he’s a helluva guy and has become a good friend of the show, his multiple inclusions are justified as he’s seemingly the busiest dude in Metal. He has cemented his status…

Radioactive Metal 509: Godsmackdown!

When we got tapped to speak to US hard rockers GODSMACK, we got excited. We thought “Yeah, it’ll be cool to talk to Sully.” But when we were informed we’d be speaking with skinsman Shannon Larkin, we got really excited!! Our interest in Mr. Larkin’s work goes way back to…

Radioactive Metal 508: Welcome Matt

For all intents and purposes, HOMEWRECKER should be huge! The Ohio powerhouse are killing it supporting THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, winning over fans with their solid metallic punch… but their roots lay within the hardcore scene. It makes for a wicked combo that has had us champing at the bit…

Radioactive Metal 507: A Lot to Ingest

UK deathcore meisters INGESTED are currently terrorizing the Metaldom as part of the “Devastation Of The Nation” tour. But beforehand, they were looking to inflict some damage solo. On tour promoting their latest masterpiece of molten metal mayhem “Level Above Human”, we sat down with axeman Sam Yates and skinbeater…

Radioactive Metal 506: Magical Metal Dust

US heavy hitters SEVENDUST are a rock n’ roll survival story. A product (or victim) of the era, the band was unjustifiably lumped into the whole “nu” metal thing. But now, more than two decades later, Sevendust is still going strong while most of their counterparts disappeared or became irrelevant….

Radioactive Metal 505: Siren Songs

We recently had the pleasure of having Norwegian symphonic goth metallers SIRENIA come thru our neck of the woods. Still promoting their latest record, “Dim Days Of Dolor”, this marked the first time the band has graced us with their presence. The mainman behind the music is axe/keysman Morten Veland…

Radioactive Metal 504: Unhooded

In the immortal words of Alice Cooper: “He’s back! The man behind the mask!” For years now, we’ve been big supporters of Hells Headbangers recording artists MIDNIGHT. We bought their albums, played their tunes, and had an amazing phone chat with mainman Athenar last year… but we’ve never seen the…

Radioactive Metal 501: No Bone Unearthed

California death metallers SKELETAL REMAINS are making big strides in their quest to bring the Metal to the masses. That all important 3rd album, “Devouring Mortality”, just hit the new release rack. It’s a key album that finds them stepping up a notch, as it marks their debut on Dark…

The Shining Wizards 365: Tony’s 75th Birthday Bonanza!

Tony celebrates his 75th birthday with a litany of surprise guests, graciously booked by Matt and Kevin (and KP Burke): The Unpredictable JGeorge, Cauliflower Brown, Matthew Ryan Shapiro, Tracy Smothers, Sonny Onoo, Dave Millican, Brian O’Halloran, Eric Bischoff, Coreen and Snowy from Radioactive Metal, “Shinsuke Nakamura” and “Bret Hart.” It…

Radioactive Metal 500: The Big 5 Oh! Oh!

“What A Long Strange Road Its Been…” No, screw that hippie shit! Let’s do this the RADIOACTIVE METAL way! “Horns up! Welcome to the 500th episode of Radioactive Metal!” When your fave podcast first hit the airwaves, there were only a handful of podcasts going. But we had a vision…

Radioactive Metal 499: Demolition Hammer

Veteran NY thrashers DEMOLITION HAMMER played an important role in the history of the extreme metal underground. DH made their debut with their classic “Tortured Existence” album on the very young and fledging Century Media Records at the time. This album, along with a handful of other key releases, helped…

Radioactive Metal 497: No Cure for Metal

Progressive NY death metallers UNCURED are a unique story. Generally our Creature Feature segments are reserved for established veterans on reputable labels with larger followings. Uncured though are unsigned and basically doing it D.I.Y. One just would never know it. With their extensive touring and promotion, they appear to be…

Radioactive Metal 495: Wagging Tongues

The mighty Metal Blade Records seems to be spreading their musical wings recently. Having been a major Metal player for literally decades, they seem to be trying to get their foot in the hardcore world door too. First, they released the brilliant new HARMS WAY album and now they’re readying…

Radioactive Metal 494: Nailed It!

Veteran metallers will remember NAILBOMB. They were a short lived, blistering project of then SEPULTURA/current SOULFLY mainman Max Cavalera and FUDGE TUNNEL‘s Alex Newport. This diabolical duo unleashed their killer debut “Point Blank” in ’94. In 2018, Mr. Cavalera seems to be bitten by the ‘Bomb bug again and Nailbomb…
