Join Chuck for part one of a two part series. Over the next two weeks we pay tribute to some of the many amazing musicians that we have lost. Memorial, Blind Melon, Megadeth, The Doors, Warrant, Twisted Sister, Mother Love Bone, Dio, Thin Lizzy, Hanoi Rocks
Tune in this week as we catch up on old times, gear up for rock, get progressive with an overlooked gem, tap in to an early predecessor to the doom riff, remind the youth that BÖC does not stand for Boards of Canada, check out a collaborative jam, test out a DJ effort and fully submit to the psychedelic might of Hawkwind.
Tonight as we say kill at least 24 times, count backwards from 5 to 1, search for the kick we’ve been looking for, discuss tapes, CDs and records, iconic album covers and internet misinformation, the importance of our community interaction, discuss that your host is a slacker, dive into some television topics and discuss questionable topics for future lyric content and complain about cell phone videos at live performances. All of this and more on this week’s episode of Monuments in Ruin!
Happy Father’s Day, Trendkillers! Mack’s in the studio with a heavy show tonight… And the heavy is of several flavors. Going deep on this one, withAlter Bridge, Alice in Chains, Mark Lanegan, Graveyard, Stone Sour, Mudvayne and Blind Melon. Join in at 9PM EST, turn it up and feel something. PS… I know I’m competing with some type of basketball contest, so it’ll be up on the podcast page and iTunes Store shortly after broadcast.
This week we thrash test the quality of picture discs, check out a word from our sponsor and climb the Appalachian mountains to find black metal, settle up with some social media jams, discuss the wrong bands, roll up some stoner rock and psychedelia then test the boundaries of time. Will the quality hold up? Will the mountains contain snow caps? Will the social media frenzy be satisfied? Can we recover from the bait and switch? Will the fog and haze relinquish control? Find out for yourself on this week’s episode of Monuments in Ruin!
Brand new Max Wax slaying a computer, phone or tablet near you in 25 minutes! We’ve got a top shelf brother in the studio on this one and him and I discuss and jam the new Scorpion Child, Official Motörhead, Amon Amarth, plus killer jams from Fu Manchu, Judas Priest, bootlegged Sabbath and the Shaft Theme song. Guilty pleasures. Weekend’s not over, yet!
Update… the weekend’s now over. Even more reason to escape into this one.
Now spinning! All of this heavy wax. Jamming some of the “Albums of the Day” from this week, and highlighting some string masters. Check out the Randy Rhoades set, Billy Sheehan set and a whole lot more on this weeks Weekend Reliever… Max Wax. We’re talking Dee (Randy Rhoades Studio Outtakes) and a 5 minute bass solo from Sheehan during the Talas Years! Yes. Subscribe to our podcasts while you’re slayin’.
What’s happening, Trendkillers? Like the evil doctor in his lab, I have been scouring over the listener stats and have been stoked as Lars Ulrich at a tennis match over the growth that we are seeing. I find it interesting to see where people are listening to us from, considering that Trendkill is just as easily streamed in Amsterdam as in Austin, TX. Therefore, I’m simply sharing our Top 10 Markets in the United States, followed by our Top 10 Markets that are outside the U.S. Over time, these change… so I’ll update you again down the road. Thanks for listening, keep your music true and turn it up ’til it moves you! -Mack
