Metal To The Masses Ep. 6. James Pligge Of Harms Way.
What's up world! This week we bring to you THE person people think about in the hardcore scene when they think of a front man who lifts; James Pligge, the singer of Harms Way. James has inspired many people over the years in the music scene to get into the gym, and has shown that you can be a jock while still being into hardcore. He spoke about his extremely early introduction to lifting and heavy music from his father, and also spoke on how he thinks the powerlifting scene has morphed over the years with its increased popularity. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode and hope you do as well!
Metal To The Masses Ep. 5. Malcom Dead Guy. Overcoming Two Kidney Transplants With a PMA
On this weeks episode I was joined by a long time friend Malcom Valdivia, owner of Dead Guy Designs. Malcolm has a truly inspiring story on how he has attacked his rare autoimmune disease, FSGS, and his two kidney transplants. This man is a warrior and has helped my personally put things in life into perspective. This is an episode you won’t want to miss.

On this weeks episode I got to sit down with Walter Delgado AKA Wallyedge, Singer of LA hardcore band Rotting Out. MAN, I loved hearing this mans story. It hit very close to home. He takes us through his life at an early age, drinking at the age of 8 to cope to then finding music and eventually getting introduced to the hardcore scene where he got introduced to the straight edge lifestyle and sobriety. On top of that, hes a BIG bench guy! Make sure to check this episode out!

Metal To The Masses Ep. 2. JohnABC. International Man Of Mystery.
Whats up world! On this episode I get the privilege of sitting down with a long time friend of mine, JohnABC, the owner and founder of American Barbell Club. ABC has been a staple in the powerlifting industry since 2015 and very much like myself, Johns roots were the hardcore music scene before it was powerlifting.
