Episode 599: Kiss Was Taken - interview with Thrust

March 27, 2020

For veteran Metallers, Thrust should have a special place in your Metal heart. During the early/mid 80s underground Metal explosion, Thrust's Metal Blade debut "Fists Held High" was part of that first wave of wicked records that paved the way. The mainman behind the outfit is axeman Ronnie Cooke. Mr. Cooke is an Iron Man of the Metal world and after all these decades he continues to kill it. In a long overdue interview we discuss the storied history of the band, their spot in the current Metal scene, and the 2020 concept of "Posers". Another chat off the old Bucket List! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we discuss coping with the pandemic thru the scene. Musically, we crank some new and classic Thrust, label mates Lost Legacy and Spartan Warrior plus new tune from Nunslaughter and Shards Of Humanity. Horns!!

Episode 598: Going Viral

Episode 598: Going Viral

March 20, 2020

This week we stare the elephant in the living room right in the eye. The threat and fear of the coronavirus (didn't they support Anthrax in '87?) has brought the music scene (and the pop culture world) to a grinding halt. Tours are being postponed or cancelled. Venues are being being shut down. This is affecting your favourite radio show directly. Inactivity on the live front greatly hinders our ability to present our awesome "action" interviews every week. But all is forgiven this week as their are bigger things on the World's plate. We vent our frustrations but also offer up ideas to help combat this invisible enemy. But its not all doom and gloom. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we announce the signing of another awesome local outfit. Plus, we crank some tuna from Inter Arma, Sacred Reich, Virus, Lord Vigo, Imperial Savagery, Immortal Possession and introduce Russia's Neorhythm in our "Indie Spotlight". Stay healthy and Horns up!!

Episode 597: For Art’s Sake

Episode 597: For Art’s Sake

March 13, 2020

Something a little different this week. Metallica axeman Kirk Hammett makes no secret of this other passion...horror flicks. Over the years, Mr. Hammett has amassed quite a collection of vintage horror film posters and memorabilia. Almost a museum's worth. Or at least a fair amount to warrant it's own exhibit. Thus, "It's Alive! Classic Horror and Sci Fi from the Kirk Hammett Collection" is born. This travelling exhibition made a recent stop in our area so we had to make an evening of it. And of course share our experience with all our listeners. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we share our recent trip to T.O. and crank some tuna from Abigail, Sadus, Necrowretch, Machinations Of Fate, and introduce Canada's The Order Of Chaos in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 596: The Life and Times

Episode 596: The Life and Times

March 6, 2020

Throughout the years, our beloved genre has been represented in the cinematic world time and again. A lot of these flicks our veterans listeners no doubt practically have committed to memory. These films also produce a number of characters whose stories ended as the credits rolled. This week, fresh off of finally seeing "This Is Spinal Tap" in a theatrical setting, we took it upon ourselves to complete these character's stories. Knowing what we know now with how the music biz has evolved we took some educated guesses and came up with some rather novel ideas of these lives and times. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we pour some Lemmys and crank some tunage from Intronaut, Stallion, Black Flag, and introduce Denmark's Vansind in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 595: Maximum RnR - interview with Max Cavalera

Episode 595: Maximum RnR - interview with Max Cavalera

February 28, 2020

This week we spoke with none other than The Man, The Myth, The Legend...Mr. Max Cavalera. With Soulfly's latest endeavour being a couple years old now, a lot of other artists would be taking the time to slack off a bit. But the outfit is still out pounding the touring pavement. It afforded us the opportunity to once again sit down with The Man and pick his brain. We discussed the Soulfly's longevity and his place in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. All with the exuberance of a rookie. In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we announce the signing of a great local band to a pretty sweet deal and crank some tunage from Gatecreeper, Immortal, Sepulture, Sarcofago, Votov, Zombie assault and introduce North Carolina's (!!) Krvsade in our "Indie Spotlight". Horns!!

Episode 594: Toxic Talk - interviews with Toxic Holocaust and Shit Happens

Episode 594: Toxic Talk - interviews with Toxic Holocaust and Shit Happens

February 20, 2020

Looks like the 2020 touring schedules have finally commenced. Which means our "Creature Feature" exclusive interviews are back on track. First up the mighty Soulfly flew thru town bringing with them the amazing Toxic Holocaust. Our chat with the "Modern Day Bathory" Joel Grind is long overdue. But its going to pay off this week. We corralled Mr. Grind long enough to get the 411 on the new "Primal Future: 2019" album. As well, we got into all his studio stuff side work and the origins of his gimmick monicker. On the "Sidestage", Winnipeg punkers Shit Happens just dropped their debut demo. So we had a great introductory chat at their release party gig braving the elements behind the venue! Only in Canada, eh! In our "News, Views, and Tunes", we address the recent R.A.T.M. ducat controversy which turned into a "Who is" and "What is" type chat regarding Nu Metal. Musically, we crank a buncha TH and new stuff from Ambush and Unmerciful!! Horns!!

Episode 593: Valentine’s Day Massacre 2020

Episode 593: Valentine’s Day Massacre 2020

February 14, 2020

Happy Valentine's Day, you beautiful MFers! Feb. 14th is that special day where love is in the air and...blah, blah, blah! Actually, we here at Radioactive Metal aren't that cynical but we do have our own twisted spin on this day. Our annual "Valentine's Day Massacre" episode is a bit anti-VDay with sort of a "She broke my heart, so I ripped her's out" type vibe. This episode we share the goings on at the "Black And Blue" fetish ball (!) that Sky put on. We rip a page from Revolver magazine and list our own "Hottest Chicks In Metal". And we play an (a)rousing game of Strip Trivia(!!). And of course all the inappropriately appropriate music to share with that special someone including Deceased, Huntress, Cauldron Burial, The Donnas, Forgotten Rebels, Aphrodite, Torsofuck, Dick Vomit, Shitfucker and Death Sentence!! Happy Horns!!

Episode 592: One Big Fix

Episode 592: One Big Fix

February 7, 2020

Simple enough this week. We found ourselves looking to take the week off. It gave us a long over due chance to kick back, pour some Lemmys, and just talk Metalshop. All in between a Fistful of Metal. Something we'd be doing tonight anyway so we might as well press "record". We recall our amazing night of punk rock and skateboarding at the Scam Jam 6 festival. As all we pay tribute to ex-D.R.I.er Josh Pappe (Rest In Power) and address our recent rash of dick pics on snapchat!! All to a most wicked soundtrack including Anvil, God Dethroned, Haunt, Wake, Cianide, Wombbath, Torpedo, D.R.I., JFA, D.B.S., and Slave One!! Horns!!

Episode 591: One Helluva Week!!

Episode 591: One Helluva Week!!

January 31, 2020

Since the 2020 tours have yet to really kick in, we find ourselves "Creature Feature"less again this week. But the timing is good because we find ourselves with a metric shit ton of stuff to talk about. Not to mention we have all Four Horsemen Of The Apodcalypse armed and ready. We discuss the recent Aerosmith saga, dress codes at gigs (??!!), and we paid tribute to the insane amount of fallen brethren we lost this past week. But we're not totally guest less. We had a quick, cool chat with Kayla "KK" Wilding, the vox of Winnipeg punkers Shit Happens. She was displaying her artistic talents at the recent "Bad Ass Babes In Bands and Bad As Babes With Brushes" festival. Musically, we crank the new Midnight, Cynic, and some classic stuff from C.O.C., Warzone and Dead Kennedys! So pour a Lemmy and rock out with us. Horns!

Episode 590: A Show of Fans - Band Spotlight feat. Rush

Episode 590: A Show of Fans - Band Spotlight feat. Rush

January 24, 2020

The music world mourned the recent passing of the legendary Neil Peart. For decades the rabid fanbase of the almighty Rush spanned not only rock fans in general but included 80s normies to death metallers and punks of today. Now is the time to properly pay tribute to the Canadian wonder boys with a traditional Spotlight episode. To help us we've enlisted the expertise of one Mark Buell. Mr. Buell is the Regional Bureau Director for the North American Internet Society. More importantly, he's been a good friend of ours since we were a mere 8 yrs old. Even more importantly, he's been a Rush aficionado for four decades!! So we're stoked to discuss all things Rush including the legacy of Mr. Peart, all our faves in the Rush discog and their illustrious career in general. We just wish it was under better circumstances. Around here Rush will always be the Rush of the music world.
