Cage interview - Sean Peck 17 Apr 12
May 06, 2012 12:53 PM PDT

Cage has definitely hit their stride. The band's knack for crafting catchy yet crushing Metal continues to impress more with each album. Science Of Annihilation truly established the band's songwriting prowess, and now Supremacy Of Steel solidifies that even further. SOS offers up the heavy yet melodic gems Flying Fortress and King Of The Wasteland for your repeated pummeling enjoyment. And when you need to be piledriven into oblivion, Bloodsteel and Doctor Doom oblige. And speaking of Doctor Doom, what's a Cage interview with Sean Peck without a Marvel Comics discussion? No interview at all I say. So Sean and I delve into which Marvel character we want by our side in battle, which is the hottest (of course), the storylines, games, tv, movies, and Cage's own Marvel Metal. You get updates on the latest Cage info (new album and ideas), and find out just how accessible Sean is to the fans. On a light-hearted note, Sean describes the Cage look. He would not be mistaken for Norrin Radd (well, maybe with a surf board and planet eater in tow). www.cageheavymetal.com

Alestorm interview - Chris & Dani 30 Mar 12
April 27, 2012 03:03 PM PDT

Having interviewed Alestorm before, I knew what to expect from Dani and Chris. This time we focused on the music, and perhaps a little more serious discussion overall. I may have even annoyed them with my take on the viking/pirate non-controversy. Both guys are swell lads, and are genuine in their love of what they do, which is produce great (and fun) Heavy Metal. I look forward to speaking with them again, and maybe next time there will be more of an easy-going atmosphere...without the cold, damp dressing room that felt like a Soviet prison cell.

Huntress interview - Blake Meahl 30 Mar 12
April 23, 2012 06:31 PM PDT

I spoke with Blake after Huntress performed their set during the Paganfest tour stop in New England. The cozy confines of a dark, dreary and cold dressing room provided the proper mood to talk about how Huntress got the Paganfest gig, a little band history, and if radio support can make a difference for Huntress.

Moonspell interview - Fernando Ribeiro 03 Apr 12
April 13, 2012 11:50 AM PDT

Lullabies, toys, baby clothes, rubber duckies...while Fernando and I talked a lot about Alpha Noir/Omega White, the highlight is definitely hearing Fernando discuss impending fatherhood. The music he will have his son listening to will warm any Metal Heart. After listening to this interview, be sure to listen to my interviews with Fernando from 2006, and Miguel from 2008. http://bnm.podomatic.com/entry/2008-07-06T12_21_31-07_00 http://bnm.podomatic.com/entry/2008-10-29T00_43_20-07_00

Firewind interview - Bob Katsionis 13 Oct 11
November 06, 2011 12:54 PM PST

Think of Bob Katsionis as the Vangelis of Metal. Extraordinarily talented, a multi-faceted career, and highly respected in music. So it only made sense for myself and Turn It Up host Jim Alvino to speak with him on a tourbus outside of a bar in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. While Firewind deserves arena-status, the band tours the U.S. no matter the climate. Therefore their dedication to their craft knows no boundaries, and as this conversation proves Bob and the band will push those boundaries. While we may or may not get a Firewind african-drumming album, we can expect more Melodic Metal mastery. But here's hoping for Bob to record a tribute album to the older synth masters like Vangelis, Tomita, and Synergy.

Icarus Witch interviews - 12 Apr 11 & 20 Dec 10
May 06, 2011 08:00 AM PDT

I've been a fan of Icarus Witch from the moment I heard the Roses On White Lace EP when we got it as a new release at WSCA about 6 years. It's only taken that long for Black Night Meditations to finally have the Witch on the 106.1 airwaves. Since that first EP, the band has released 3 stellar albums and experienced the rise of the scene, growing in size and scope. Yet the band predated it by years. The Witch's commitment to their craft is proof that they will still be here years from now. While firmly steeped in Metal history, at times wearing their influences on their sleeves, Icarus Witch has created a sound all their own. When you hear their music, you know it's the Witch.

Up first is guitarist Quinn Lukas calling in (from a men's room in a bar) for a live on-air Witch update with myself and Turn It Up host Jim Alvino. Afterward, you will hear our backstage discussion with Lukas, bassist Jason Myers and vocalist Christopher Shaner recorded after a concert during the Paul Di'Anno tour.

Battlelore interview - Tomi Mykkänen 18 Jan 11
March 06, 2011 08:25 AM PST

Should Battlelore stick to Tolkien themes only? What about a covers album? An acoustic album? A U.S. tour? And how much of Tomi's life is dedicated to Battlelore? What about his other projects and daily life outside of the band?

I've been listening to Battlelore for many years, so I was excited to speak with Tomi before their latest album Doombound was released.
