Are You Ready To Rock? with Waingro

Waingro
Who loves Vancouver? When I was in Mexico last week, I spent about 3 hours at dinner with a whole table of people from British Columbia. They were super nice.

While you're thinking about those folks and what they were thinking about my Ramen inspired "Send Noods" t-shirt...

Check out some Doom Stoney Grunge stuff from that great province....here's a BANDCAMP for ya!

1. Every major band worth its salt has released a live album. Tell me about your favorite A list band's live record and your favorite underground live album.

Generally, I really can't stand live albums, but there are a few that have snuck by and ended up in the ol Spotify rotation. 

KISS Alive! is probably the one I've gone back to the most consistently - we'll address the controversy of that whole situation in a couple of questions.

Pizza Pie Do or Die with MVRVA

MNRVA
Who's up for some stoner sludge doom metal?

Well, check out South Carolina's own, MNRVA.

They're on the BANDCAMP and you can stream it to your heart's content.

While you're doing that, pop some tums and talk pizza.

1. Pizza is the world's most perfect food. This is not up for debate. 

Please define pizza as based on your geographical location. 

Pizza in South Carolina is different interpretations of pizza.

This is not a bad thing because you get to try everything and each one is a little different. I think the best pizza in Columbia is probably Labrasca’s Pizza.

Some of the coolest pizza as far as region is in Atlanta. They have a lot of rock n roll joint type places that serve good pie.

Classic Spins with Sir Oz of CRS/Cirrosis

CRS
Mexican Death Metallers, CRS, have just popped out their latest album via Concreto Records.

Previously known as Cirrosis, they're back with their sophomore release and only twenty years after the debut.

Go stream that stuff on SPOTIFY.

For now, let's talk about Sir Oz's listening habits.

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? 

The Crimson Idol from W.A.S.P. The story of a black sheep, a metalhead seen in the family as a bad guy or a loser.

The story of many people, not a fiction, is a deep and real story. Musically a master piece.

My very first album was Live Evil by Black Sabbath. Since then I've had a strong affinity for the live record, even if they're a bit fake. KISS set the bar with Alive!. 

Surely, it was fake, but it's got the best concert feel of any one. Tell me about your favorite live record?

Stream: "The Art of Breathing" by CRS

Mexican death metallers CRS prepare to release their second album, The Collector of Truths, this December.  The Sonora-based band, formerly known as Cirrosis, originated in 1991 and released their debut LP Reciclando Desesperación in 1999.  Now, twenty years after that first album and almost thirty years since the band's inception, CRS are back with a thirst for blood.

In the vein of Morbid Angel, Carcass, Fear Factory, and Cynic, CRS prides themselves on playing music that's both brutal and nuanced, with melodies that rise above the underlying chaos.  


Vocalist Sir Oz, guitarist/bassist Francisco “Chucky” Oroz, guitarist/bassist Joseph Lev, and drummer Tavo Ramirez were joined by two international guest musicians for this album: Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Suffocation, Chimaira) plays drums on “A Better Place to Hate,” “Tan Lejos de Dios (Nowhere.. But Here),” and “I’m the Universe," while Linus Klausenitzer of Obscura and Alkaloid lends his bass work to “The Art of Breathing. ”

The Collector of Truths will be available on December 6 2019 through Concreto Records.

1UP with Ghost:Hello

Lately, my Gamecube has been getting quite a workout. My daughter and I have been playing my Japanese Edition of Phantasy Star Online: Episode I & II Plus...but in English Mode...

When you're playing games, it's only natural to want to talk about them. 

Today we check back in with Ghost:Hello.

Did you get their VINYL record yet?

Glacially Musical: My first system was a pong clone, the yellow and black Odessey 300. What was your first Console? 

The very first Game system we had was a full sized Galaxia Arcade game. 

My dad got it from the bar down the road I believe. We would open up the lock box and flick the trigger where the coins fell to give ourselves unlimited credits and we’d stand in the dining room chair and play all day.

A Man Walks Into A Bar with Fumarole

Fumarole
For a new twist on an old non-favorite...we're having an Austrian band give us their take on the bar scene.

It's certainly not Czech or German proper, but Vienna has some delightful breweries so that ought to give us some nice stories.

Well...<checks notes>... they are actually Australian.

You can be their FACEBOOK friend....

1. Which is your favorite kind of bar and why? It can be any kind. Whiskey, Beer, Wine, Coffee, or Steel.

I love a good dive bar! Sticky floors, cheap drinks, band stickers littering the barely working toilet. 

You need to be able to smell the regret of last nights poor decisions for it to be a trve dive bar. All the most interesting people end up in dive bars so it can lead to some awesome stories, rarely true but who ever let that get in the way. 

All the best people are weird and unpredictable.

Asian Cuisine with Mountain Dust

Mountain Dust
We are talking again to Montreal's Mountain Dust. Can I start this off by saying that Mountain Dust is a really cool  name for a band?

Then when you consider that they're a stoner band which when coupled with a pre-internet rumour I heard about Montreal back in the way back about the city having decriminalized pot back in the late 90's...and hash dens sprouting up..

Well it just all makes sense to me, but if you're into that kind of rock and spinning those records on your platter..

Go to their STORE.

1. We are all brought up eating Chinese Food. What's your go to order from the Chinese Takeout place?

As you well know, Dewar PR is one of the best PR firms in metal. Get with him if you're looking to start a new campaign.  Dewar PR

Pizza Pie Do or Die with Cult of Sorrow

Let's talk again to those Midwestern Rockers, Cult of Sorrow.

They've got this record out there in the world.

You can get it in any flavor you like, CD, digital, or Purple Splatter. If you're into that doom metal like you say you are...


If not, just order some pizza.

1. Pizza is the world's most perfect food. This is not up for debate. 

Please define pizza as based on your geographical location.

Hi! This is Jerry Lovett from Cult Of Sorrow. Pizza is one of my favorite foods. 

I try to eat it at least once a week. I'm from Cincinnati Ohio, so there really isn't a defined style here although we have some great pizza places. 

Most of it is your typical thin/medium crust pizza, topped however you like, although the wood fired pizza craze has been coming up strong for the past few years.

Asian Cuisine with BornBroken

For now, let's get down on the egg rolls.

1. We are all brought up eating Chinese Food. 

What's your go to order from the Chinese Takeout place?

BB: I donʼt really order Chinese takeout I mostly go to Chinatown and basically try a new
place or some that I really enjoyed before.

Hair Today Gone Tomorrow with Celestial Ruin

Celestial Ruin
There's nothing better than Canada. There I said it.

Canada is the best country in the world and they won't let me in. Well, it's not really their fault. I mean, I haven't tried to get in permanently.

I also haven't been invited and that's the real problem as I see it. So, let's talk to some Canadians right now.

Celestial Ruin was good enough to be silly with  me.

1. In 1982, we all thought Quiet Riot was metal if you were 7 like I was. Who was your first Hair Metal band?

I was only three years old, LOL. To be 100% honest, I was introduced to hair metal 8 years ago when I met my husband (our bass player), Mike "Dikk" Dagenais. 

My first exposure to hair metal was Motley Crue. They opened up a whole new world for music for me! I was lucky enough to see them in Las Vegas at their residency at the Hard Rock.

Crue has played a huge influence on Mike.

2. Who's in your Hair Metal A-List and why?

Classic Spins with Murder Van

Murder Van

In Atlanta, GA, there's a thrash band getting ready to drop their first album. You should be friends with them on FACEBOOK, but for now...


Let's talk about records.

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?


Skraw- "King Diamond is THE master of the concept album. It would be hard for me to name just one as my favorite. 

King is amazing, excellent musicianship, and the stories are great. Abigail, Them, and Conspiracy are definitely on the top of the list."
