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!
Tonight we test our strength with power metal, process some progressive and punk rock, hang out with some hard-core jams, revisit some ragtime tunes, try to balance out our inner being through musical tones and psych and submit to Sabbath Worship once again. We are also giving away a free record among those who were attentive enough to catch up with how to enter! All this happens on Episode 46 of Monuments in Ruin!
Giving away a sealed copy of the heavy and killer new album, “The Unknown Secretary” by BUS, tonight on Max Wax! Listen LIVE to win and be ready to text in when you hear the cue (this happened in the past… sorry). This Red/Black Marble LP on Twin Earth Records will be going to the fastest one to text in. On top of that, you get an hour of heaviness from across the spectrum. Let’s rock!!! #maxwax #freevinyl Thanks to Ric Bennett for sponsoring the giveaway!
Tonight we focus on the tones and aesthetics of what many call Sabbath Worship. It’s not surprising why so many of the records in our heavy music library lean toward the pioneering efforts of Black Sabbath. The plan for this episode is to lightly scratch the surface of this phenomenon with a small number of current artists basking in the vintage riffs, techniques and legacy of a sounds delivered to the world in mass scale over 45 years ago. We are gonna play a few Black Sabbath tunes, as well.
Labor Day Weekend here in the States… which means tonight’s a PARTY!!! Not only that, but this is the first show on Trendkill that is going out LIVE. This also means that Mack’s a little nervous about how this one’s gonna go, but it promises to entertain! Live and off the two turntables in the studio, we’re hitting a ton of the heavy… so come get some!
This week we talk about traveling, heat exhaustion, an extreme music festival and tap into some songwriters in musical parallels. While some artists use one project as a total catharsis, others require a pallet a bit more broad in scope. This week’s episode showcases a few artists that require more than one project to purge their musical expression.
Tune in tonight to find out about some upcoming giveaways, why I’m digging rain, what’s up with all this doom, why bluegrass is the metal of country music and again… what’s up with all this stoner metal stuff??? This one’s heavy, ambient and all killer, featuring BUS, Torche, The Sword, Bison Machine, Skeletonwitch and MORE! We’re kicking off at whenever you hit that play button, so grab a shot… or a shotgun, and get ready to blow your speakers!
