135 – Rob Zombie, Pupil Slicer, Maximo Park and Eyehategod

A sombre start to the show this week as, after a brief battle with bile duct cancer, Entombed A.D. vocalist LG Petrov has passed away at the age of 49. Remfry and Steve pay tribute to a man who has influenced countless bands across the extreme world. RIP LG. 

In other news, Kreator are going to be headlining Bloodstock Festival this year (if it goes ahead) replacing Mercyful Fate, Architects secured a No.1 album on the UK Official Album Charts and, bizarrely, Maroon 5’s Adam Levine has claimed that there are no bands anymore … 

Reviews this week include The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy by Rob Zombie, Mirrors by Pupil Slicer, Nature Always Wins by Maximo Park and A History of Nomadic Behaviour by Eyehategod.

420,681,600 seconds. 7,011,360 minutes. 116,856 hours. 4869 days. Or as most people put it, 13 years. Finally, after a lot of waiting (and a lot of pointless maths) Tool’s new album, Fear Inoculum, is here and we’re about to review the s**t out of it! Strap in for over an hour of analysis on one of the most anticipated records of the decade. 

There are other albums out this week too including new releases by Hugar, Entombed A.D. and Black Futures. Plus, there’s a discussion over the controversial Die Antwoord video that has surfaced from backstage of a festival in 2012, whihc has resulted in the South African hip-hop duo being dropped from a number of festivals, including Life is Beautiful, Louder Than Life and Riot Fest.
