This week on GIMME METAL:
Ektomorf Guest DJ Special - Since Ektomorf's 1994 debut, Hangok , the Hungarian four-piece has regularly delivered new power to their devotees. The band's latest release, Reborn , out now on Napalm Records, ignites with crushing, speed-driven guitar riffs and smashing drums upon angry, driven by the vicious words of vocalist/guitarist Zoltan "Zoli" Farkas. With its heavy sound and harsh lyrics that will burn any genre limitations to the ground, the band's fifteenth studio album breathes the spirit of the "Big Four'' while simultaneously beginning a completely independent new chapter of Ektomorf. GIMME welcomes the band to the guest DJ spot for a special that promises some metal nuggets from Eastern Europe and more.
GIMME 5 w/ DJ Jet - This month, Jet conducts interviews with another stellar roundup of artists. Tune in this Tuesday at 5:00pm EST /2:00pm PST, to catch spotlights with Deeds Of Flesh ( Nucleus ), Moonspell ( Hermitage ), Korpiklaani ( Jylha ), Angelus Apatrida (self-titled LP), and Iotunn ( Access All Worlds ). Join Jet in the chat about these albums, artists, and more!
Gravesend Guest DJ Special - New York City's Gravesend arises with ill intent like a foul emanation from the aging sewage-filled rot slowly winding its way beneath the city's vast concrete walls and pavement pathways; a city of discarded needles, noxious fumes, scavenging rats, broken bottles, and cracked minds. An aural manifesto of urban blight and disgust, the band's latest offering, Methods Of Human Disposal out now on 20 Buck Spin, is the appropriately grotesque follow-up to their cult-revered Preparations For Human Disposal 2020 demo. The LP works like a lone killer stalking the streets, internally seething with rage, preparing to cast off the last remnants of restraint. Bear witness to savage black/death metal with a hellish grindcore fixation, searing warped speeds, and the slowly swelling carnage of a derailed subway pileup, and hear what aural destruction they throw your way with their first guest DJ special.
Culted Guest DJ Special - Culted have returned once again to Season Of Mist with Nous (out this Friday) to inflict their distinct brand of experimental black/industrial/doom. Teeming with squalls of feedback and flanks of warped riffage that sounds like it's being pumped through blown amp heads, primitive percussion, and fuzzed-out hissy vocals abound, this will be the deep-freeze soundtrack of your mid-winter dreams. GIMME is honored to have Culted take over the airwaves.
Coming soon to GIMME METAL TV:

Behind The Wall O' Doom : Zakk Sabbath Documentary - Check out this free event on GIMME TV! Zakk Sabbath is the Black Sabbath tribute band featuring guitarist/vocalist Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne), bassist Blasko (Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie), and drummer Joey Castillo (Danzig, Queens Of The Stone Age). Behind The Wall O' Doom is the companion documentary to Zakk Sabbath's Vertigo , a re-recording of Black Sabbath's eponymous debut released last year in celebration of the record's 50th anniversary. "We recorded a live EP and were wondering what we could do next as a cover band, so the 50th album anniversary came just at the right time," said Blasko. "Compared to [Black Sabbath's second studio album] Paranoid , which is almost like a best-of record, the bulk of the material on Black Sabbath is deep-cut, really experimental stuff that was never thoroughly explored, so that was a challenge, not to forget that we wanted to meet our own high standards." The songs were faithfully recorded in the spirit of the original - live in the studio and with a film crew documenting the process - culminating in a new celebration of the greatest heavy metal band of all time and the record that started it all. It's a compelling documentary and you don't need to be a Brigade Member to enjoy the whole thing so make sure to take advantage of this killer showing!
