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. 58

Prepare to go deep into the most brutal riffs, straight off the KTFT Turntables! A Brand-New Max Wax is here to get your mind off the bad and onto the heavy, with Earthless, Tool, HoP, the brand-new Overkill and a whole lot more. Submit to the Riff.

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.

Max Wax, Vol. 55

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!

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.

Hard to hype a show that’s gonna go out LIVE, because you never know WHAT’s gonna happen! Tonight, we’re paying tribute to a couple of our favorite bassists who were ripped from us way too early. Then we’ll take a left turn through the fog and the heavy to explore a bunch of killer metal. We’re also paying tribute to an amazing band that we hate to see retire way too soon AND Mack’s giving away the Autographed Fox 45 album from Twin Earth Records. This one promises to be crazy!
