    Music Is Life Podcast - Episode 51: SPECIAL EDITION! Rob Castoria (AKA Big Rob) of Merauder

    Music Is Life Podcast - Episode 51: SPECIAL EDITION! Rob Castoria (AKA Big Rob) of Merauder

    Rob Castoria (AKA Big Rob) and I became friends through Instagram. When I saw he was in one of my favorite NYHC bands Merauder, I reverted back to being a kid again, as I reminisced of having discovered them for the first time when I heard “Find My Way” on a Century Media Records compilation. The more I got to know him, we discussed having him on the podcast to talk about his story, which I’m honored to have done so.



    Rob started playing in bands in the 1980s with Metalstorm, when metal ruled in venues on Long Island and in Brooklyn/Queens at venues such as Sundance and L’amour, and when hardcore ruled Sunday matinees at CBGB. Before that, he meticulously practiced his instrument, always reaching for self-improvement. It’s true what they say - you never stop learning, and Rob is proof of that.



    In the last 10 years, Rob formed Maniac Rise, and released EPs on various streaming platforms. They were also invited to participate on a tribute album to The Godfather of Metal (and the God of Metal Riffs) Tony Iommi of Black Sabbath called “The Great Lefty,” in which they contributed “Time Is Mine” (released in 2000 on Iommi’s debut solo CD “Iommi” with Phil Anselmo of Pantera/Down/Superjoint on vocals).



    To keep Rob’s name relevant in the NY music scene and build momentum for Maniac Rise, he performed various “shreds” throughout NYC and Long Island, where he was spotlighted as a soloist during setups and breakdowns for performing acts. Now, Rob is one of two guitarists in the band that kept crossover hardcore alive and well in the 90s - Merauder.



    On top of that, Rob is also the tech for Joey Z., guitarist of one of the most important bands of the 90s that are still going today - Life Of Agony.



    Rob is one of those guitar players that people NEED to hear. On top of being a great musician, he’s a great guy. And I’m happy to bring him to my platform to discuss his experience, his opinions, and his goals.



    With the pandemic subsiding, it’s time for Rob to get back to doing what the good lord put him on this earth to do - shred guitars, and melt faces in the process.



    SPECIAL EDITION NOTES: Rob and I talk about many things here - division in communities, the Tompkins Square Park concert, the whole pandemic, people's right to choose their own path, how social media can be used for good and bad, and more.

    Suck My Balls #79 - S5E11 The Entity "Im......Back!!!"

    Matt, Ian & Joe are back for another edition of Suck My Balls. This week our four favorite boys are visited by Kyle's cousin....Kyle. Kyle's cousin isn't your average 8 year old and is afflicted by multiple allergies and no physical makeup whatsoever. Our Kyle deals with having him around...by constantly trying to get rid of him. Meanwhile Mr. Garrison has invented a new mode of transportation "IT"! But the airline company and government aren't happy about it. We also review trivia, pop culture, and our favorite moments. So download this podcast, because we got a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Denver Community College.
