Besides the interview with Paul Allender of Cradle of Filth, episode 24 of Focus on Metal features an interview with Rob Cranny (Northern Storm Records) who has been to four Wacken Open Air festivals as well as the newest and coolest fest, The “70,000 tons of Metal”, a four day cruise that took 2,000 lucky metalheads and 40 metal bands on a journey nobody is likely to ever forget. We talk to Rob about the experience of sharing a large cruise ship with devoted metalheads and non-stop music coming from three stages on board of 70,000 tons of metal.

Episode 22 – Reek of Carcass

January 31st, 2011, posted in Death Metal, Grind Core

Bill Steer of Firebird and CarcassMandy and Dario had a great chat with a pioneer of the second wave of extreme metal, Bill Steer, known for his work with Carcass and Napalm Death. Bill talked to us about his latest Firebird album, tough times surrounding the last Carcass studio album, and an even more difficult process of reuniting with the band. Bill spends a bit of time discussing Heartwork and talks in depth about its impact on the band. 
For us it is always a pleasure to talk to such an inluential individual such as Bill. Mandy and Dario also dress the upcoming episode with Carcass music, and typical features of Focus on Metal, such as news, new releases, tour report and the return of metal birthdays.

Episode 22 of Focus on Metal is feature-packed with many surprises. Naturally expect off the wall humor you’ve come to expect from the Extreme Pair. Join us this coming Tuesday February 8 at Pure Rock Radio and the following day via iTunes.
