Exciter Reveals New Guitarist

With the departure of founding guitarist John Ricci, Canadian speed legends Exciter are hyped to reveal that Daniel Dekay (Diemonds, BangerTV) will be taking the position as the new guitarist for the band. A longtime friend of the Exciter family, Dekay was a natural choice and a perfect fit to keep this thrash machine pounding. Dekay joins forces with original members Dan Beehler & Allan Johnson to round out this lineup of the band which is already working on new tunes with plans for a full length studio record.

The original lineup of Exciter reunited in 2015 but last month guitarist John Ricci decided to leave the group, finishing a second stint in the band which began in 1992.

High On Fire Frontman Heralds The Electric Messiah

Very few musicians make it so far as to form an influential band, let alone two. But since Sleep's debut, "Volume One" in 1991, metal fans have been treated to the awesome might of Matt Pike's guitar sound and in 2000, listeners have become familiar with his distinct voice, as High On Fire released their debut, "The Art Of Self Defence." Over the course of this nearly thirty year period of releasing records, Matt Pike has come to be seen as a modern metal legend, with fans often comparing him to Motorhead frontman Lemmy, something he modestly refutes.

Before their show in Bristol yesterday, I was lucky enough to sit down with the man himself to discuss his career, the new albums from both High On Fire and Sleep and the meaning behind the awesome "Electric Messiah" artwork. You can watch the interview in full below. More...
