Category Archives: Max Wax… Where the Needle Hits the Metal

Mack takes you through his extensive vinyl collection of the heaviest, one loud hour at a time. Deep, moving and heavy music of all genres, but we’re not going to lie. It’s mostly metal… and all over the map. Mack will tell you why and it will make sense, because you’ll be moving.

Max Wax, Vol. 62

On tonight’s Max Wax, we’re going from obscure Jazz/Funk/Fusion of the Beastie Boys to the Truckfighters to the Black Crowes, with many crazy stops along the way. Check out some old favorites, new vibes and a ton of solid vinyl from the Trendkill Studios, including some killer heaviness from our new friends, Cincinnati’s own Spring Grove!

My favorite band that I can’t spin… Sevendust…. Max Wax, Volume 61. I’d buy the comprehensive boxset of their career on vinyl for $350 right now, but no such beast exists. So, I’m just going to do an hour show that’s NOT off vinyl (trust me… I don’t feel right about it) in an effort to appeal the God’s of Vinyl Heaviness for some 7D records.

Something a little different for your Wednesday night… it’s Mack and I’m in the new studio about to lay down my first live hour of vinyl, straight off my wheels to your ears. This happened LIVE at 9PM EST Wednesday, Feb. 15th and you can catch it live at that day and time weekly. Shows will always be available right here by the next morning, though, so hit play and get loud as I drop the needle on Sabbath, Black Label Society, Megadeth, Crowbar, Stone Sour, The Atomic Bitchwax and a ton more.

It’s been a long day and I’m really ready to sit down and spin some choice cuts off of each of these albums for you. Look deep enough into what I’m playing and you’ll see that each of these tracks deals with what, I would say, most of us Americans have been witnessing, reading, feeling and dealing with for a while now. Today, things change… for good or for bad, but things change. F’n cheers to that!

Max Wax, Vol. 54

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.

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.
