EWB 223 ERIC KOMST
This is another one of those special episodes where I got to kick with an old friend. This week drummer extraordinaire Eric Komst joins us for what turned out to be more of a b******t session between two old friends than a podcast episode. EK has played with a legion of legendary bands including Sick of It All, Warzone, Wrecking Crew and others as well as a prolific session career.
Intro: "All Road Lead to Ruin" - recorded and composed by Mike Hill
Outro: "Deceive us No More" - Warzone
EWB 222 UNHOLY MINNEAPOLIS
At least in our opinion, as cool as the early 90's Northwest sound was, the unsung heroes were two bands from Minneapolis that made their bones in the early 80's. Can you guys who?
Intro: "Everything Went Black Theme" - composed and recorded by Mike Hill
Outro: "Kiss Me on the Bus" - Replacements
EWB 221 Mike McGinnis Rid of Me / Fight Amp
Mike McGinnis joins us again to discuss his new band Rid of Me. If you’re an old school listener, you will remember that I had Mike on to talk about his former band Fight Amputation. With Rid of Me, he joins forces with member of Soul Glo and Low Dose creating an angsty brew for fans of PJ Harvey, Wipers, early Replacements and Unwound. Check out their new LP "Traveling" and go see them on the road!
Intro: “All Roads Lead to Ruin” – composed and recorded by Mike Hill
Outro: “Broke Shit” – Rid of Me
EWB 220 KEITH HUCKINS (DEADGUY)
True, all EWB episodes re special, but this one is SPECIAL! Keith Huckins of Deadguy, Kiss it Goodbye, Rorschach joins us to talk about the impending Deadguy reunion at this year’s Decibel Metal and Beer Fest in Philadelphia. Check it out!

EWB 219 STEPHEN FLAM (GODEN / WINTER)
Back when I hosted Metal Matters, I featured a series of episodes on Goden on their masterpiece, 2019’s Beyond Darkness. It was one of my top 5 records that year. I’d like to welcome back Stephen Flam, the mastermind behind Goden. For the record Steph was also in the legendary Winter and later Thorn. This is an epic so strap in and enjoy!
Intro: “All Roads Lead to Ruin” – written and composed by Mike Hill
Outro: “Twilight” - Goden
EWB 218 BRANDON LEGION
For any of you that also listen to Necromaniacs, our horror podcast, you’re probably familiar with Brandon. He hosts the excellent Horror Wolf 666 podcast and blog, so if you’re into all things macabre, definitely check out his stuff. We had a great time.
Intro: “All Road Lead to Ruin” – composed and recorded by Mike Hill
Outro: “”Dead Letters” – Tripping the Mechanism
Plague Diaries really helped this past year. Thanks man. Thanks for the hard work and awesome music. Hope to see you all out on the road sooner than later. Be safe
I find I have a lot in common with Mike & Randy. EYEHATEGOD is my favorite band & I saw them for the first time in Syracuse ‘97 i believe the day before the Boston show w/ dead& gone $ neurosis. Then the 2nd time (if 60+ times) a day later in Albany NY at the QE2. Anyway-mr hill is sometimes hard to hear,other than that I really dig this show.
Keep it up Mike!
Been listening for a long time, never left a review. The Plague Diaries series has been great. Thanks!
