The second episode, divided into two parts, takes place during the Caulture Shock Tour with Cauldron and Waste's heavy metal band, Volture. Part two offers up a great deal more on-the-road antics where Waste visits with Michael Denner (Mercyful Fate) at Beat Bop Records, his second-hand vinyl shop located in the heart of Copenhagen.

They also dub plenty more "Headbangers Of The Month" as they travel through Italy, Germany, Czech Republic and Finland. The episode includes other surprise segments as well as a bonus music video tribute to Alice Cooper from the same tour. More...

Report

Municipal Waste Fucks Up Austin For $3

Twenty years ago, I remarked that if you went to a concert and didn't have bruises the next day, you didn't have a good time. I don't experience shows the same way now, but my former words live on in the crowd at the Mohawk in Austin, Texas. From massive circle pits to stage and even PA diving, many on the floor surely awoke on Saturday with lumpy, bluish marks on their bodies. Whether it's grindcore, power violence, crossover, hardcore or just plain ole' punk rock, Austin has an affinity for punk-related bands. So when Transmission Events and Red Bull brought in Municipal Waste and Power Trip for a mesely $3 (with RSVP, without the show was $10), you could expect nothing less than a packed house of rowdy punks a metal heads.

Municipal Waste Posts "Living Fast" Episode

Living Fast is a heavy metal talk show created by Ryan Waste (Municipal Waste/Volture/BAT). The first episode, which debuted in February, featured John Gallagher of Raven.

The second episode, divided into two parts, takes place in Europe during the Caulture Shock Tour with Cauldron and Waste's heavy metal band Volture.

Waste elaborates, "We did all the filming and interviews on the fly giving it a different vibe from the first episode. This time around we broke it into two parts because of the multitude of footage. Part one mostly covers the UK with interviews from Jeff 'Mantas' Dunn and Tony 'Demolition Man' Dolan (Venom, Atomkraft, M:Pire Of Evil) and several other NWOBHM bands during Brofest 2 in Newcastle. We also visited a couple British heavy metal landmarks and dubbed multiple 'Headbangers Of The Month' across mainland Europe.

"While on the road sometimes a certain song becomes a tour anthem, and surprisingly it's not always a metal tune. We became obsessed with the soundtrack from the 1987 B-movie Miami Connection that was re-released on Drafthouse Films. The intro in this episode of Living Fast is a tribute to the AOR ninja band Dragon Sound from that film. Hopefully that will clear up any confusion for the metalheads who watch the show. Enjoy Part 1 and stay tuned for a lot more tour antics in Part 2 as well as an exclusive interview with Michael Denner of Mercyful Fate."

Check out Part 1 of the second episode below. More...

Brainsqueeze Festival Trailer Available

In celebration of the second edition of Brainsqueeze Fest, the enablers at Oakland-based Tankcrimes Records, in cooperation with Decibel Magazine, offers up a maniacally side-splitting new teaser video. Check it out below.

Elaborates fest founder/Tankcrimes big cheese Scotty Heath, "The reason it took me four years to have a second Brainsqueeze is because we didn't have a new and better idea for a second commercial, the first one was a fucking phenomenon. Then this great idea came along so I booked the gig. Created by the same team as before of Ross Sewage and Mark Reategui who actually work completely separate from each other. They fucking nailed it."

Set to commence April 18th and 19th at the Oakland Metro and April 20th at Eli's Mile High Club, which will include BBQ and an Andrei Bouzikov art show, the gargantuan Brainsqueeze gala features more than a dozen face-raping acts including Municipal Waste, Final Conflict, Ghoul and Negative Approach.

Bloodstock Adds More Bands To Festival Lineup

The organizers of the Bloodstock festival have checked in with the following announcement about confirming more bands for this year's edition:

"Here at Bloodstock HQ we are excited to announce a whole batch of new additions for all three stages. There’s only seven weeks left to the most metal weekend of the year!! Have you got your tickets yet?!

"Opening Friday’s main stage, and fresh off the back of the release of ‘IV’, their first album in ten years, are British post metallers, Earthzone 9. The band are stoked to find their way to Catton Park’s hallowed ground, commenting 'Earthtone 9 have never played Bloodstock, so we could not be more excited! It's one of our only gigs this year, so we are truly going to make the most of it. There may well be some drinking!' You can pick up a free download of their single, ‘Horizon’s End’ at this location.

"On Sunday’s Sophie Lancaster stage, Sacred Mother Tongue get added. Having received huge plaudits for their second album, ‘Out of the Darkness’, and live shows, the Northampton based band are building quite the name for themselves. Check out the video for ‘A Light Will Shine’, here. More...
