Once again, it's Canadian Metal time in The Great Black North! (But isn't it always?) On this week's program, DJ Matt Hades is joined by Wayne, guitarist for one of Canada's newest and hardest-working metal figures, Vancouver BC's OMEGA CROM!! The boys riff on a variety of subjects, including the band's extensive and exhausting touring schedule, how much brainpower you need to comprehend Omega Crom's music, and how "all real men sing falsetto".
And, in honour of this metal meeting, this week we're featuring some brand new music from some of Metal's biggest names, including the manliest of the falsetto-singing Metal Men, Mr. ROB HALFORD, as well as IMMORTAL, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, IRON MAIDEN, and many more!!
Plus, as always, we have your metal news, concert listings, and DJ Matt spouting off as he always does!
So tune in before it's too late!! This week on The Great Black North - Canadian Metal Podcast!
