98. Derrick Vella of Tomb Mold

Episode Recorded on April 22

Derrick Vella of Tomb Mold is back and for the first half of the episode we kept it casual and talked about quarantine life, Tomb Mold, his new doom project, what metal we've been listening to including new stuff and a lot of older stuff, joining Outerheaven, favorite hardcore bands/albums, and a whole lot more. 

The 2nd half of the podcast is were things get weird and is all about our love for the band The Drive by Truckers. For those unfamiliar, they are basically an alternative country/southern rock type band but really pretty hard to classify. There's no metal to be found here. We realized we are both obsessed with this band a while back and Derrick through out the idea of ranking our top 20 songs from them. I loved it. You probably wont. Thats ok. It just gave us something to break up the quarantine boredom and have some fun with. Even if your not into it there was a lot of interesting side conversations throughout so its worth giving a chance to. For the two of you out there that get all the way through the episode we solute you!

66.James Murphy Interview (Ex. Death/Testament/Obituary) & Disincarnate Throwback review

Hey guys episode 66 is kind of a sneak peak into our Patreon bonus content. We paired half of our first bonus episode with a huge interview with James Murphy, previously of Death, Obituary, & Testament. He talked about his Disincarnate project, becoming a member of Death for the "Spiritual Healing" period, writing on Obituary's "Cause of Death", joining Testament, and a whole lot more. If you want to hear the remaining 45 mins of the original Patreon bonus episode with our normal talk of what we’ve been listening to, head over to our Patreon site at the link below. Stan was unable to join us for this episode due to his ongoing black metal mold problem so we had two special guest listeners that joined us and really brought their A game. We talked about our favorite concerts and an overlooked death metal classic Disincarnate “Dreams of the Carrion Kind” which was James Murphy’s project after his time with Obituary.

 

*Sone corrections to the episode: James actually played on 3 Testament albums (we forgot the live album) and was a big contributor to the writing during Death’s Spiritual Healing as you will hear in interview.
