    Karma to Burn - Karma to Burn (1997) [w/ Rich Mullins of Karma to Burn & Howie Abrams, A&R]

    MEEPISODE 60:⁣
    Karma to Burn are a unique entry into the Roadrunner catalog - an INSTRUMENTAL band...who release a non-instrumental album on Roadrunner.  ⁣

    K2B started as all riffs and no vocals but when Howie Abrams signed them to tha label, expectations were that they'd get a frontman to bring their message to tha MASSED and as you'll hear...that was easier said than done. ⁣

    Their incredibly talented leader Will Mecum unfortunately passed away in 2021. This album however lives on whether he likes it or not & we have his partner in literal crime Rich Mullins to take us from the beginning to... Well you'll see where it goes. ⁣

    We're also joined once again by tha man Howie Abrams to tell us about one of his final projects for RR, how he helped them release tha fully instrumental follow-up with his friend Peter Nussbaum, and Karma being courted by a member of Metallica!⁣

    This saga featured John Garcia of Kyuss fame temporarily being their vocalist, Nick Oliveri of Queens of tha Stoneage fame being around for it, working with producer Steve Haigler, and finally...a new Karma to Burn album in the works!!!⁣

    Vision of Disorder - Imprint (1998) [w/ Matt Baumbach & Mike Fleischmann of V.O.D. and Brian Audley of Incendiary]

    Vision of Disorder - Imprint (1998) [w/ Matt Baumbach & Mike Fleischmann of V.O.D. and Brian Audley of Incendiary]

    MEEPPRINT⁣

    In 1996 Vision of Disorder released what is now considered a classic with their self-titled "green drip" album but tha band wasn't satisfied with that sound. They knew they could do better - and now we do too!⁣

    In 1998, "IMPRINT", tha relentless follow-up was unleashed complete with a Phil Anselmo guest spot, recording with producer Dave Sardy, and a nationwide Triple Meep Attack tour with Earth Crisis & Sepultura!⁣

    Tha Visionaries themselves Matt Baumbach & Mike Fleischmann leave their mark on our minds about tha entire process as well as tha prelude (Resurrecting Reality), epilogue (For the Bleeders, From Bliss to Devastation), and quintessential V.O.D. songs.⁣

    In addition, Brian Audley from modern Long Island hardcore heroes INCENDIARY reminisces about his early exposure to Vision of Disorder and their legacy today.⁣

    There's no slumping on this sophomore and V.O.D. is for EVERYBODY on this Meep Meep!⁣

    M.D. took some time from burning it down to talk about making tha Faktion album FACE-TO-FACE... so prepare to hear a bunch of doors slam because there's no quiet entrances in rock 'n roll!

MEEEPSTERS!

Any person who purchased anything Roadrunner put out needs to listen to this podcast.
Remember when you bought an album JUST BECAUSE the band was on Roadrunner?
Yes, I do and I did.
Not just a “Take a look back, my opinion and blah blah blah..”
Ryan knows what he is talking about, like little details he brings up that 99.99999999% of people didn’t know. Me included.
Long live the Meepsters!!!
