HELLBOUND RADIO: August 22nd, 2010 Playlist

Jesus Christ…I go away for a month and everything goes to a shambles. The station from which we broadcast Hellbound Radio every Sunday has begun the process of being gutted in order to be moved to a still undetermined location sometime in the next nine months – nothing like planning ahead, eh? Half the college seems to be under construction as well, which makes getting to the actual station after hours a bit of a pain in the ass. Then, there are my esteemed co-hosts who failed to put up a single playlist while I was away. So, here you go, Sunday night’s goods.

Geezer Butler: The Hellbound Interview

“We all thought that we’d be able to do [Black Sabbath] for two or three years and then go get proper jobs. I mean, that is what bands did back then. That is what we thought would happen with Black Sabbath. We were lucky to do a second album, we were hoping that it would do well and then eventually we’d disappear. Nobody ever dreamt that any band would last this long, still being popular some forty years later.”

The Top 10 Reasons Why HEAVY MTL Will Be Cool

This Saturday and Sunday will see the city of Montreal play host to the second ever HEAVY MTL. As longtime Hellbound readers will remember, we ran a belated review of the 2008 edition last summer that featured photos by our own Adam Wills and a few write ups by me. This year Hellbound.ca has a group of our writers heading down yet again, including Albert Mansour, Adam Wills and Laura Wiebe Taylor. They’ll be able to tell you how great it was afterwards, but in the meantime here are my Top 10 reasons why you should head down to Montreal on Saturday if you are on the fence.

Rush @ Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, Toronto ON, July 13, 2010

I’m not a huge fan of bands doing albums in their entirety, but when the album is freaking Moving Pictures, the band is Rush, and it only makes up about a third of the show, how can you say no?

HELLBOUND RADIO: July 11th, 2010 Playlist

So in our ongoing new efforts to show the world that we have one of the most diverse metal radio shows on the planet, here is the playlist to last night’s edition of Hellbound Radio. This is our last show with all three of us for a while, as Kevin Stewart-Panko heads out on tour with CEPHALIC CARNAGE later this week.

HELLBOUND SUMMER METAL MELTDOWN: July 10, 2010 Playlist

In an ongoing attempt to show that our Hellbound radio programs are some of the most varied, interesting metal radio shows that can be heard on the radio/online, here is our playlist to last night’s edition of the HELLBOUND SUMMER METAL MELTDOWN. Kevin wasn’t around for this program, as he was preparing for his upcoming summer tour acting as road manager for CEPHALIC CARNAGE, but we did have another guest DJ in for the night.

Hellbound contributor, photographer and web guru Adam Wills came onto the show with Albert and Sean last night. It was his first ever experience on the radio and was a natural

Iron Maiden @ Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, Toronto ON, July 3rd 2010

“Saturday’s show was a real Iron Maiden show, done with passion and vigour and integrity. It was a show made for their die hard, long-supporting fans. This was no greatest hits run-through, this was a band celebrating the fact that, after more than thirty years as a professional band, some of their greatest musical achievements have been on their past three studio albums.”

HELLBOUND RADIO: July 4th, 2010 Playlist

I’m going to go out on a not-so-brittle limb and say that the radio show that is loosely associated with this website is probably one of the most diverse heavy/extreme music programs on the face of this ridiculous planet. This is due in large part of the tastes, collections, whims and tolerant attitudes of myself and my co-hosts. To prove it – and to finally start promoting the show we’ve been doing for four years now – we’re going to start posting our detailed playlists a day or two after each on-air stint. Take a listen sometime; I guaranteed you’ll be either surprised as shit, amazed, confused or totally pissed off at the massive scope of diversity our show delivers.

The Hellbound Interview: Sam Dunn & Scot McFadyen of Banger Films

“Beyond The Lighted Stage was actually shot over quite a long period. The first work on the film goes back to October 2007. We were working on it and then while we were into it, we got the go ahead from Iron Maiden to film Flight 666. So, we had to go to Rush and their management and make sure that it was okay to put the filming on hold, which they agreed to.

We started again doing things after Flight 666 was finished and we worked right up until this year. The last interview for the film was completed in early 2010, so it was more than two-and-a-half years work, on and off, on the film.”
