Tonight’s LIVE Max Wax is a show in four parts, with very little talk in between. The evening begins with three brutal tracks off of new releases from some of the most killer in the doom and thrash genres, then we’ll shift to three screeching tracks from a few of the 80’s heaviest thrash acts, then we switch over to tracks from three amazing bands that are comprised of musicians from “more famous” bands… and we’ll be closing out with an amazing live track from Austin’s own Gary Clark Jr. Did I mention it’s live? So… anything may happen!!! All vinyl… all heavy… all candy for yo’ ears.
HAPPY HALLOWEEN, FRIENDS… It’s our favorite holiday and we are now playing our 2016, 2 Hour+ Halloween Spooktacular! It’s followed shortly after 8 by a special Halloween Edition of Monuments in Ruin and then we’re playing the entire Halloween Show again! So basically, just tune in now and let’s all get scared for the rest of the night! This show features tracks selected by Bobby Rayfield, Magnus Tannergren, David Paul Seymour, Mark Anderson and me, Mack. These shows cannot be played loudly enough!
It’s Halloween! Which one of these albums were released 10 years ago on this date? Hold up your candy bags and receive your treats! Join us for a ghoulish ceremony as we reimagine a holiday carol and hear how your host survived to tell the tale, inquire about things that go bump in the night, tune in to a musical trick, then light up the candles and turn the lights down low for an original KTFT halloween story written and prepared by your host! All this and so much more it’s frightening!
Alright gang… we are STOKED to announce that we have a seasoned veteran of heavy radio debuting his show on KTFT tonight!!! Into The Void Radio is straight out of Sweden and has been a dark presence online for a long time and we’re ready for you to see why. His shows are BRUTAL!!! This show features a lot of killer metal, including a track from the brand new Testament album. You do NOT want to miss this!!! (Did I mention how stoked we are???)
This week, we discuss the global state of metal, if another global dominant band will occur and what we see as the bands with the potential to break that ceiling. We are joined by Eric Hendrikx, writer and photographer at Rollingstone.com and co-author of the latest Zakk Wylde book, Bringing Metal to the Children”. This is a discussion that you don’t want to miss… and that we are so stoked to bring to you.
Ready for Halloween? We are, too, so Mack’s getting the mood rolling towards the big night with a dark and eerie show that you don’t want to listen to with the lights off. We’re exploring dark themes ranging from doom to metal to humorous to… classical? Every last drop of this one will leave you ready to turn on the closet light, pull the covers over your head and pray that you live to see November. Oh yeah… and it’s all coming at you LIVE (and undead). Video will be rolling live, as well,, so join in the celebration and bring your Ouija Board.
Knock the dust off of your Pound Puppies, double check the date on your calendars, break out your trapper keepers, set the tracking on your VHS for another addition of Monuments in Ruin’s Chronology Series because tonight we break into the 80’s! Which voice would you consider defined the sound of the 80’s? Which group has less than 5 songs that fade out? Who made an impact on future thrash legends? Which album does your host think sounds miles above many others? We will answer all of the questions and more on tonight’s introduction to the 1980’s on Monuments in Ruin!
