Vinyloscopy with Juan Pina of Anthea

Symphonic metallers Anthea aren't done with us or you yet. Seriously, I have no idea how that haven't gotten tired of my insane questions.

Or did I mean inane?

Eh, today, we're going to hear about my other favorite thing besides beer...RECRODS! 

You can spin all their music over at their WEBSITE while reading along here.

1. Listening to Black Sabbath's eponymous debut the night I got it blew me away. What's the album that sounds the best on vinyl compared to digital sources?

The first album that comes to mind in my collection would be Pink Floyd’s “The Division Bell.”

Hometown Tales with Martin Drozd of Protokult

If you feel like you didn't get enough of the Protoculture...here's another look at Protokult. Personally, there were some things we didn't learn about Drozd the last time he spoke to us.

So, let's find out more about the man and where he's from.

Check out their Folk Metal stylings over there on BANDCAMP.

1. St. Louis City is my hometown. I've lived here for most of my life in and around the city. Where are you from?

I’ve lived here (Toronto, Ontario) enough to consider myself Canadian and the family is originally from Poland. 

2.We have three things that don't really exist anywhere else: the slinger, the gooey butter cake, and toasted ravioli. Tell me about your hometown delicacy.

Beer Thirty with Adam Tremblett of The Dead Centuries

As we sit, my beer fridge, isn't quite fallow, but it's not bursting at the seams either.

Personally, if the beer fridge isn't full, why even have it in the first place?

As of this writing, it's holding some Public House Brewing Elusive IPA, Genessee Brewing 12 Horse Ale, and Public House's Marzen.


Tomorrow will be another fill up day. As the summer was financially as disciplined as Anakin visiting the Sand People...it's been a struggle to get back to Obi-Wan level discipline.


This summer has been hard and I've been filling all the holes with all the things I love, but it's not like this guy is so special in that regard.


In the meantime, spin this song if you didn't last week.

Beer Thirty with Anthea

We're checking back in with Anthea. This time, we're going to hear all about beer preferences.

As always, get on their WEBSITE with the appropriate gusto.

1. My personal favorite beer style is the mighty Double India Pale Ale. The best DIPA in the world is STLIPA by Urban Chestnut.

Tell me about your favorite style.

I’m definitely a sucker for any pilsner. When it’s on the menu, it’s always my go-to. My local favorite is Highland Park Brewery’s Fill Pills. 


2. Many international people have laughed at me for this, but American Beer is the best in the world. Not American Lagers, that piss water is best used for drinking 15 of them while you're at the karaoke bar, but American Craft Beer. Which nation is pumping out the best beer?


I’d have to agree with you. American Craft Beer is just killing it. 

Fresh Fries with Tom McKay

Now, normally, we keep these columns going in print, but as Tom McKay is also a YouTuber, apparently he felt he'd come across the best if he took his to the voice box via the world wide weberverse.

So, I guess you're going to have to wait before you stream his work on BANDCAMP until after the video is over, but you should totally do that.

Vinyloscopy with Fred Crew of Paradise

Let's see how things are in Montreal. It's my favorite French Canadian city that I've never visited. Really that last bit isn't necessary. 

I've yet to visit the Province du Quebec and I hope to remedy that in the very near future.

You can get their LP at BANDCAMP if you're into that sort of thing as well.

Now, let's find out about records.

Listening to Black Sabbath's eponymous debut the night I got it blew me away. What's the album that sounds the best on vinyl compared to digital sources? 

London Calling, The Clash 

I was laying in bed one night and couldn't sleep and I figured, it was time to start buying records. How did you come to the idea that it was time to start buying vinyl instead? 

One way or another, we all go back to our sources. Vinyl IS the source.

Beer Thirty with Martin Drozd of Protokult

The Beer Thirty Column was a great success in terms of how many different bands were willing to take some time and talk to me about beer.

I had no idea that these metal guys would be so interested.

It's certainly my favorite beverage, and I would definitely answer this column should someone ask me!

Maybe I should ask me, but I kind of already answered in the questions didn't I? I especially love the responses from our friends to the North. I've spent some time up there in the Fabled Canadas, but I've not done nearly enough beer tourism up there.

Today we're talking to some folks from Canada's Second City, and I only say that because Second City TV was filmed in Toronto, Toronto, Ontario.

Whilst you're learning about how they beer, check out this VIDEO.

Fresh Fries with Paul Goings of Shadow People


Let's had down to Baton Rouge where we're talking to Paul Goings of Shadow People. 

He's kindly agreed to talk to us about Fast Food.

Check out their latest EP on BANDCAMP.

Just read on.

1. Let's not pretend. Fast food is delicious. What is your favorite fast food joint? 

Paul Goings: Fast food's fucking disgusting, I’m not pretending, there are way better guilty pleasure foods out there .So I have several serious health issues that are shrinking my life span exponentially. 

One of the very unfortunate side effects is an ability of my body to tolerate grease. So no meat, butter or fried foods. The pain of withdrawals from cutting these foods out of my diet was second only to that of opiates. 

I mean opiates were way, way worse, but fast food was second. Still can’t manage to edge out cigarettes or Coke. But anyway, now that I‘ve covered the forward to this novel of an answer I’ll say again that fast food is fucking gross. 

Vinyloscopy with Benny Kemp of Rebel Priest

Let's check out a Hollywood band. How long has it been since we've been listening to those sleazy rock bands that dragged themselves down the dirty streets of the Sunset Strip?

There's just something right about bands that play where the stars are. It makes them reach that much higher.

So hailing from <checks notes> Vancouver, British Columbia....OK, so here's the deal, they're from a place where they make movies...so I just kind of assumed.

Anyway, not only do these guys release a vinyl record last year, they also are big fans of the medium. Check out BANDCAMP and see about getting that record of theirs...

Classic Spins with Adam Tremblett of The Dead Centuries

One of my favorite things in the world, apart from music, my family, hockey, beer, a deliciously brewed tea, mentioning casually (several times) that I percolate, not brew my coffee in a percolator that's older than me, and sleeping, is language.

A friend of mine is from Upstate New York and he always said AWL-ba-Nee. I would correct him, but he felt as he was from that area of the world, I should shut my damned yapper.

Another city along those lines is Ottawa, Ontario. Folks up there say Ottawa differently than we do, or Hockey Night In Canada has been lying to me for decades. I can't say for sure, as I've not gotten that far north into Ontario yet.

And if I did, wouldn't it be weird to be asking folks up there to tell me the name of the city over and over while recording it?

Real quick, before we get to our friends in Ottawa, Duncan Evans and I are launching a Podcast on Thursday about the forgotten history of Heavy Metal. Check it out on ANCHOR.

By the way, The Dead Centuries have dropped their first single. If you're looking for some Animals As Leaders style awesomeness... Watch the video HERE.

Beer Thirty with Altan Aydin of Never Elected

It's time to meet someone new. There's always another fish out there. 

Right now, I don't know what to buy. All of my faves haven't got a record out, but there's always someone else to meet.

(Of course I mean that they don't have new records I don't have...I have US + THEM, S&M2, etc.)

It's kind of like beer really. If your shop is out of that delicious double IPA you've been enjoying for the past few weeks, naturally they're going to have more of them out there.

Today, Never Elected's Altan Aydin.

What do you need to know about Never Elected that I can't tell you? This pretty sweet, rockin' music video ought to give you an idea of what they're all about... Check it HERE.

While you've got that going in the background, let's talk about America's number 1 beverage, BEER!

Fresh Fries with Bobby Demoss of WoR

The last time we heard from the North Carolina Groove Metallers Young Master Funderburk was telling us about some delicious beers. You can take a look at that HERE.

As I do at Glacially Musical, I'm getting to the heart of this band, and the biggest question I have about any band before I get into them is what kind of fried chicken do they eat?

See, it's important to know that the art you consume isn't tainted or sketchy. Fried chicken and White Castle's is how I learn about you.

I'm not crazy. I keep telling my wife that I'm not crazy.

Make sure you're giving their tunes a listen whilst they make you hungry on SPOTIFY.

1. Let's not pretend.  Fast food is delicious. What is your favorite fast food joint?

Vinyloscopy with Pepe Poliquin of Endast

Who's out there right now spending time with their records in order to get a little bit of normalcy as we enter into the third season of the Great Covid-19 Pandemic?

That's certainly how I'm handling all of this. I've also been releasing videos on YouTube about vinyl and such. I hope you can check that out.

But, enough about me and the world we're living in...

Today, we get to hear again from Calgary, Alberta's Endast. If this is the first time you've heard the name, check out their VIDEO.

1. Listening to Black Sabbath's eponymous debut the night I got it blew me away.

What's the album that sounds the best on vinyl compared to digital sources? 

To me, all album sounds better on vinyl like Led Zeppelin II the newly remastered version blew my mind but at the same time this was made to be on vinyl but when I bought the Kublai Khan Nomad album that was made to be released digital is amazing on vinyl probably one of the best sounds I heard so far definitely the loudest.

Classic Spins with Charlie Cayouette of The Naked High

Who's out there right now wondering about what kind person is bigger into the non-makeup era of Kiss than the regular good era?

Well, I've found someone for you. Perched out in the very odd city of Montreal, we have The Naked High.

I think you're going to see how well their name fits. 

If you're not too confused, there's the BANDCAMP.

1. My favorite kind of album is the concept album. The Wall is my absolute favorite. Beyond the amazing songs, it has spectacular nostalgia for me. What's your favorite one and why? 

We prefer live albums: Ozzy's 1982 Tribute album, Pantera's 101 proof, Lamb of God's Killadelphia, BLS's Alcohol Fueled Brutality Live, etc...! 

The energy and the playing make it more genuine.

Hometown Tales with Michael Bala of Bloodfeast Ritual

Certainly there are some readers out there who're like this blogger and wonders what life amongst the northern states is like?

Not about those states like New York, Pennsylvania, or Illinois, but the seriously northern states..the ones that are up night cuddling with Canada.

Well, if only there was some way this could be brought to the proletariat via Glacially Musical.

Welp. Here's a man from Fargo, ND.

In the mean time, there's always this EP there over at BANDCAMP.

1. St. Louis City is my hometown. I've lived here for most of my life in and around the city. 


Where are you from?


I am from Fargo, North Dakota!

2. We have three things that don't really exist anywhere else: the slinger, the gooey butter cake, and toasted ravioli. Tell me about your hometown delicacy.
