Hellbound Metal: “Two weeks in a row! That must be some kind of record around here. Truth be told, last night’s show was more of a solo mission than a group effort. Sean was still down in Port Dover, ON celebrating Father’s Day with his pops and Albert is currently on call for a film he is doing extra work on, so this show was done entirely by Mr. Kevi Metal himself. No surprise then that, for the most part, everything on this show is essentially new releases, as KSP likes to keep it current. Anyway, here’s what was heard on last night’s show…”
Well holy shit, it’s a Hellbound Radio playlist! Well, there actually hasn’t been a playlist for a while, as it has been nearly a month since we have done the show live. Never fear however, faithful listeners/followers, for Hellbound Radio returned on Sunday night with a show jam packed full of new releases.
Things are a little quiet this week at Hellbound, as a bunch of us are away in Baltimore, MD at Maryland Deathfest. So, since we are away, here is a reprint of a story I did on one of this year’s headliners, DOWN, for their second album back in 2002.

In 1996, Hellbound’s Sean Palmerston was offered the chance to do the first ever in-person North American radio interview with Quorthon, leader and visionary behind legendary Swedish black metal act Bathory. They also went out for dinner together beforehand, and here are Sean’s memories of that fateful night some seventeen years ago, shared in public for the first time since.

Last night Sacha Dunable of Intronaut joined Meshuggah live on stage at Centre Stage in Atlanta, GA. Meshuggah frontman Jens Kidman has the flu and the band have told him he can’t talk when not on stage, so they asked Sacha to help a little bit by singing the final song of their set (“New Millenium Cyanide Christ”) last night.
Earlier this year I was contacted by Scion AV to see if I would be interested in doing an interview for them with a Canadian label. The label in question, Moshpit Tragedy Records, is a Windsor, Ontario based label that works almost entirely on a “pay what you want” business plan.
