    Episode 45: Tomas Haake (Meshuggah)

    Episode 45: Tomas Haake (Meshuggah)

    Episode 45 is with Tomas Haake of the Swedish band Meshuggah. This episode was recorded on the eve of the release of the bands latest album 'Immutable'. A fantastically beautiful, layered and crushing work of modern metal, that yet again proves them to be one of the most vital bands in the genre. Over the course of this conversation we discuss the writing and recording of the album during the pandemic, some of the dystopian themes covered in the lyrics, the idea that all great art has an ethereal nature that is hard to pinpoint, yet is easy to recognise when it resonates for some of us and also the hypnotic trancelike quality that I find the bands music to have. We also talk a little about the health issue Tomas has faced with a recurring hand injury as they were preparing to tour the album at the time of recording...
    If you want to find out more about the band, the internet is right there.
    They can be found online @meshuggah in most places, their instagram for example is here.

    Episode 44: Ville Valo (VV, HIM, Agents)

    Episode 44: Ville Valo (VV, HIM, Agents)

    As we are on the threshold of a new year and former HIM frontman Ville Valo is less than two weeks away from releasing his debut album under the moniker 'VV' called 'Neon Noir' (due Jan 13th Via Spinefarm / Universal) it seemed appropriate to release this show on new years eve 2022. Its been five years to the day since the Finnish singers former band HIM drew their last breath at their final show at Helsinkis Tavastia venue in 2017.
    I recently met up with Ville whilst he was here in London and in the office of the label we discussed the recording of the album during lockdowns, where the singer / multi-instrumentalist played and sang everything on 'Neon Noir'.
    We talk a little about his former band HIM and the creative process both then and now, especially under such solitary conditions that were imposed during the pandemic. We talk about the archetypal powers of love and death, Eros and Thanatos and their magickal conjunction as Thanateros and how they have been the basis and muse for the genre Love Metal, that Ville started with HIM and that the new 'VV' record is another layer and continuation of. We discuss the Heartagram, a sigil that 19 year Ville scribbled into popular culture and where it now resides somewhat beyond its original intention and meaning.
    I hope you enjoy the conversation and the forthcoming VV record and as we move into 2023, try to do it with love and compassion and with a protective glow about you that repels all the bad shit of the last few years. Onwards!

    Episode 43: Erik Danielsson (Watain)

    Episode 43: Erik Danielsson (Watain)

    In this episode with Erik Danielsson, frontman of Swedish black metal band Watain, we discuss the bands new album 'The Agony & Ecstasy Of Watain' which is due out April 29th on Nuclear Blast Records and can be pre ordered from various sites such as here. Along the way we talk about the albums recording, the nature and importance of transgressive art and those that walk the path outside of societies norms, the spiritual aspect of the band that is a foundational part of their work and the nature of the magickal entities known as Egregores.
    Though Erik was recording the audio at his end via mic, due to a technical glitch, the last 5 minutes or so are from the recording of the call from my end as his recording cut out.
    You can find the band online here or via their instagram account here
    Daniel is here and the podcast is here
    Please leave a nice 5 star review where you can for the podcast and subscribe on your preferred platform.
    The painting of Erik that is the cover of this episode is Oil, Acrylic, Pencil and Prima Materia on paper. Approx 12" x 12"

    Episode 42: Aaron Weaver (Wolves In The Throne Room)

    Episode 42: Aaron Weaver (Wolves In The Throne Room)

    On this episode, number 42, myself and Aaron Weaver discuss his band Wolves In The Throne Room's latest album 'Primordial Arcana' along with the spiritual mindset he, his brother Nathan and guitarist Kody Keyworth apply to making their art. Since the bands first release in 2006 (Diadem Of 12 Stars) WITTR have made incredibly atmospheric and magickal black metal in the Cascadian scene of Americas north west...
    Very quickly we get into talking about the process of channelling art and music that rises as a current from the landscape they live within. We talk about rising through the Olympia Washington punk rock scene of the 90's, through to the recording of this newest record.
    Its a great episode and Aaron is a very cool and erudite musician and it was a pleasure to finally get to talk with an artist who's work I have loved and supported on my radio show for many years.
    The album is available now via Relapse Records / Century Media / Artemisia Records. Please go and listen now if you haven't already, it's really brilliant... Spotify link here
    The band is here on Instagram.
    All their tour dates and merch links can be found here on their official site.
    Aaron is here on Instagram.
    Daniel can be found here on Instagram
    Someone Who Isn't Me on IG is here.
    Thanks for checking it out.

    Episode 41: Chelsea Wolfe

    Episode 41: Chelsea Wolfe

    On this episode, which take two of a conversation with singer, songwriter, musician Chelsea Wolfe, we discuss her music and the creative process and how that changes due to environment etc. We talk about the collaboration with Converge on the Blood Moon project, her band with Jess Gowrie called Mrs Piss and about her albums as Chelsea Wolfe. Its a rad episode and Chelsea is one of my favourite singers for the fact that her work is imbued with a very magickal current.
    The first couple of tracks of Blood Moon have recently been released with the album due shortly and if you aren't familiar with all her solo work or through her many collaborations, please do yourself a favour and check it out ASAP. The last few that came out on Sargent House in particular, are records I can't recommend enough. So very good.
    You can find here on instagram here
    The podcast can be found here
    And Daniel is here on IG.
    The painting of Chelsea came out pretty rad and like all of the portraits for each episode, it is Oil, Acrylic and Ink on paper. If you want a print of it, punish me on my instagram and I'll consider adding it to my print collection on the Deathwish webstore here
    Thanks again.

    Episode 40: Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire / Gallows / Black Lungs / Dooms Children)

    Episode 40: Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire / Gallows / Black Lungs / Dooms Children)

    My guest on this episode is Wade MacNeil wonderful human and musician known for his work not only in the bands Alexisonfire, Gallows, Black Lungs and his new endeavour Dooms Children, but also for his score work for various films and video games. We caught up recently to discuss the formation, dissolution and subsequent re-convening of Alexisonfire, a band that rose from Canada's sweaty bar room punk scene into full fledged Juno winning arena filling rock greatness. We talk about him becoming the singer for British punks Gallows, after the departure of frontman Frank Carter and we discuss the recent turbulent period in Wade's personal life that he overcame and led to the formation and recording of Dooms Children, a heavy psych folk project that see's him moving away (somewhat) from his punk rock roots. We also talk about the creative process and magick but that was always gonna happen wasn't it? Come on, you should know the score by now. If you don't then look back from some of the previous episodes are they're pretty rad, by and large.
    The first track from the self titled debut album 'Flower Moon' can be seen here and heres the link for the bands profile page on Dine Alone Records
    Wade can be found here on instagram and it will be the best place to keep up to date with all his many works.
    Daniel can be found here and the podcasts instagram is here Follow either of those and I'll be overjoyed. Truly.
    The portrait of wade is acrylic, oil and ink on paper and originally had a weird crying worm spirit rising from a crop of psychedelic mushrooms but I painted over it as it looked weird (as previously stated.)
    If you listen on apple podcasts, please leave a nice review and comment as it'll take very little effort and will count as an act of kindness that'll go some way towards balancing out your karmic debt. Thanks.
    Peace
