This interview was recorded live and broadcast on my radio show October 7, 2013. Thanks again to Matt from Speaker Eater for joining me. Included with the interview are four songs. One is a rough mix of a track on their upcoming album and the other is a remix of Soverence from their second EP Lords. Take a listen, let the band know what you think of the tracks. Also included in this post is an interview with Speaker Eater from July 30, 2012.
Interview from The Lair radio show on June 10, 2013. Be sure to catch them at the Days of the Doomed festival.
Sardonyx is one of the newest additions to the Madison metal scene. The band is comprised of a solid mix of local metal veterans and newer talents. While I can’t wait to get a hold of some recorded material to share on the radio show, I can’t imagine that it will ever be a substitute to seeing them live. Killer riffs mixed with intense playing and a front woman that sells it all with attitude. Only together a short time, Sardonyx has quickly become one of my favorite bands in the area. Take a look and then get out and see them live.
This is a video of Enabler from Milwaukee, WI. It was taken March 24, 2012 at the Dragonfly Lounge in Madison, WI. Their latest LP “All Hail the Void” is available via Southern Lord or Vinyl via Halo of Flies. They have also recently released a 7 inch “Shift of Redemption” on Think Fast Records. Enabler has seen a couple recent lineup changes but are back on the road tearing it up. Enjoy the video from a dark room and go check them out if they are in your area.
Beast in the Field is some exemplary doom on record, but catch them live for the full body pummeling. It’s amazing that the walls of Quarters Rock and Roll Palace didn’t crumble under the weight of the and volume of the riffs. If they come to your town there are only two places you should logically be. At the show, or hiding in a church.
Just an idea of how loud it was in the club. This is the first time I’ve had the volume of a band destroy the mic on my phone like this. Even Jucifer didn’t mess with my camera this much.
Thanks again to Beelzefuzz for joining me in the interview segment. I’m really looking forward to seeing them at the Days of the Doomed Festival in a couple weeks. Below the interview you will find the playlist for the May 14, 2012 show.
