Some bands stick to something tried and true, and some bands take leaps guaranteed to kill any momentum they've built along the way. My guests today, the boys from In Fear, demonstrate that somewhere in the middle lies the sweetest of spots: A place called home where the riffs are ferocious but still feel like a place that Jack built years ago when…
 
This week on the show, we break some new ground. It's not often we are afforded a chat with musical royalty, but today... indeed we are. Bassist Steve McDonald started his professional music career at 11 years old. Within a few years, he and his brother Jeff started the seminal power pop band, Redd Kross and, less than 10 years later, played the To…
 
Marlee XX is here to stay. She's a contemplative talent, aware of her persona and style and confidently operates within the landscape she will own soon enough. I'm so happy to have had her on my show. There is going to come a day, in the not so distant future where Marlee and her vocal stylings, whether rap, soul, or afrobeat (or heck... pick a gen…
 
As it happens sometimes, I am honored to connect with a real legend in the business. This is due to the fact that I was that weird kid that wanted to know what people weren't talking about on the radio. Cut to today, when who should arrive at my virtual door, but the man himself.... Dee J Moens (Moons) of the legendary Belgian rock band, La Muerte.…
 
It's not often that I connect with a musician quite like Craig Lawrence. Let me explain. Most musicians are a bit wild eyed and loony. I know because I'm one of them. When I speak to a guy like Craig, it's such a breath of fresh air because he's not trying to be someone he isn't. He isn't putting anything on. His music is precise, fun, infinitely l…
 
Karin Park seems to exist on an alternate plane. It's rare that an artist can feel so singular, even when it's apparent that there is a sort of hidden musical homage to those that have influenced them. Karin's new album, Private Collection, speaks to the soul in a profound way. The music is glassy, mesmerizing, morose, lovely, challenging, enchanti…
 
Short and sweet is how it is when you get J-Easy on the line. The man is a great example of a classic rap artist, playing with the ideas of youthful hubris, all while being a dad, a husband, and a kind soul dealing with naysayers. His new single, 'Let me brag,' says it all. It's a young buck, letting you know who and what's what, all while deliveri…
 
Vancouver Canada has a habit of birthing bands that revel in eccentricity. What I find most appealing is that my guests today are really just kind, normal dudes. Hunting Giants came to my inbox via a favorite PR team and my ears immediately couldn't get enough. There is a new electricity in their sound that rivals the progressive metal greats of th…
 
Matt Wagner is going to surprise you. His energy and voice seemingly know no boundaries... at least not yet. Matt's voice is a new icon waiting for discovery and I'm so proud to be one of the first to spread his message of good musical news. I was fortunate to discover Matt through a business relationship, who simply sent me an email asking my prof…
 
As Dennis Sanders says 'Life has a way of saying "don't get too comfortable,"' and maybe that's exactly why I like his music so much. Today, on the show, you're going to make another new discovery with me, as we listen to the first moments a new artistic friendship was formed. Dennis' band, Spirit in the Room, is a dark hearted novel come to amazin…
 
Okay okay... every once in awhile, I get super nervous doing an interview. It isn't intended, obviously, and my energy goes through the roof, so hang on to your hats, because I'm off the rails today. I was so ecstatic to connect with Greg and Sean from the global supergroup, Vented and it shows. Vented was founded not long ago, and for a brief time…
 
Sinnery is a fantastic band and my interview with Alon Karnieli was all the things I'd hoped it'd be. What's really crazy is Alon is halfway around the world and we actually have mutual friends. How does that happen? Sinnery's new record, Black Bile, comes out in September, and everyone I know is thrilled to hear the entire work. Hopefully, today's…
 
Gematria. Say that amazing word three times fast. I was so blessed to chat with Ray Suhy of this fantastic progressive rock act, and we had a wonderful time, getting to know each other and touch on some fascinating subjects. Ray is kind hearted and an utter blast. It's times like these where I wish I could get more than 60 minutes of conversation, …
 
When I sat with Zach Amster of the up and coming monster rock band, Abrams, I knew I was in for it. Zach has that certain something that I'm familiar with and envy at the same time. He's thoughtful and transparent, but he owns the floor and in our interview, Zach made it very clear he knows what's what. The direction of Abrams is clear and it's my …
 
Dark and brooding.... words that are overused... it must get tiresome, especially when you're a very talented person and you're constantly aligned or misaligned with everyone else in a certain genre. My conversation with James Hammontree of Oklahoma City's Black Magnet was a real treat, because the man is a reality check, charging straight into the…
 
Mark Bravi, or as I still like to call him, Marco, is a true musical upstart and an integral piece of the musical mission known as Virtual Symmetry. Hailing from Italy and vacationing in Switzerland, Mark gave me enough time and enough joy during our interview to make up for any emptiness in my life...perhaps ever. I don't know if I've ever met suc…
 
Meeting Ian Blurton is one of those super cool experiences, because not only do guys like us vibe on a cellular level, but the man actually writes some of the best songs you'll ever enjoy. Ian's been around a long time and it shows in only the best ways. When you kick around the circuit for years, your sincerity cannot be denied and Ian's music pro…
 
This chat has to be one of my favorites. The brain behind the brawny musical endeavor known as Contemplator, Christian Pacaud, is a truly interesting and open guy and his music makes me happy in the best ways. Contemplator takes old school ideas, flips them around, skins them, pumps in calories and nutrients, and lays the new sounds bare for you to…
 
The Oklahoma Kid is a metalcore inspiration of the highest order. I became a recent fan and it's easy to say that I'll stay that way. The band has a reputation for really giving it to the fans, and the music hits me so hard, I don't know if I can claim I have 20/20 vision anymore. Maybe with my reading glasses. Their killer bass player, Robert Elfe…
 
Feather Mountain is one of the most important bands in the world. They tell stories that penetrate your soul. The melodies are complex and inviting. The subject matter is human and fully realized. It's magic stuff and I'm honored to be friends with the band. Over the last 12 months, we've had a few different chats, and this interview presented toda…
 
There's an odd thing that happens in the music business and particularly in the world of heavy metal. People love to categorize. In fact, they love to do it so much, that every band in history despises the question, yet guys like me have to ask it because how else can we turn our listeners onto a new thing? Listeners love to think they are open min…
 
Meeting the members of Polarity is ultimately the result of a very happy accident. In preparation for an interview with a very well known progressive rock band, I was listening to a song on YouTube. As it happens, the songs end, and inevitably the algorithm brings up a new song, often by the same artist. As I'm in the middle of writing my questions…
 
In this episode, Vince and Jason sit down with Civil Rights Attorney Robert Patillo to discuss imigration issues, the left vs. rights’ messaging to voters, and is Trumpism dying? Attorney Robert Hillard Patillo II is the Executive Director of the Rainbow PUSH Coalition's Peachtree Street Project headquartered in Atlanta Georgia. Attorney Patillo ha…
 
Where October Ends, nu-metalcore seems to begin. I was blessed to connect with Nick and Alex for a recent show, and I discovered so much more about this great band that I've fallen in love with. October Ends mixes sounds, culture, and impeccable songwriting into an easily digestible and decisively lovely mix of mystery and misery. Make sure you lis…
 
Guitarist and songwriter, Andreas Ballnus, has been working on a 'new' project called Philosophobia for 15 years. Yes, I said that right... 15 years. In between gigs with various world class musicians around Europe, Andreas and a few other superstar musicians wrote, recorded, and ultimately re-recorded the new self titled album, out June 24th. If y…
 
Tom Naumann is a true original. Along with his partner in crime, Mat Sinner, the name behind the legendary band, Tom has enjoyed a career at the forefront of German metal. I was so fortunate to snag Tom for this interview. He and Mat are so very busy with the press behind the new Sinner record, BROTHERHOOD, as well as the re-release of the epic sel…
 
What do you do when you encounter genius? Do you let it overwhelm you? Do you ask it questions, to better understand it's impossible point of view? Do you sit and revel in the idea that some can see other worlds and imagine other sounds? Typically, I sit in awe and do my best impression of a smart person, so I can at least hang on some level. That'…
 
In this episode, Vince and Jason sit down with the Governor of South Dakota to discuss removal of monuments, transgenders in women's sports, LGBTQ rights, and her 2024 election plans. Kristi Noem is an American rancher, farmer, small business owner, and politician serving since 2019 as the 33rd governor of South Dakota. She is a member of the Repub…
 
Damon Tate is just one of those guys who brings such a calm vibe that you get immersed in his world easier than you'd expect. Of course, this belies the intense nature of his band, the awesome OF VIRTUE. True to form, though, Damon is a guy who gets it out on stage and on record, and as I've said many times, it's always the guys in the heavy bands …
 
Sometimes, interviews are a real challenge. Othertimes, they find their way into epic experiences. For some reason today, my conversation with Mike and Aaron went way past epic and feel squarely into the legendary category. I'm not sure what it was, but man we had a great time. Sure, it's possible I was a little excited. Sure, I love the new album,…
 
If you were confronted with a life or death situation, how do you think you would respond? Would you bear down and deal with the circumstances and worry about the consequences later? How would you respond emotionally? Would you pray? My guest today, Charles Cure of the brutal New York based sludge metal band, HUSH, encountered such an experience. F…
 
Groove, reckless 70's stoner vibes, and huge blue psychedelia makes Elektric Mistress' killer EP, Chapter 99, a hit in my book. I was able to chat with a few of the guys in the band, namely guitarist Kyle Cantfell and keyboardist Riley MacDonald, so it was really nice to get a few different perspectives on the sound and fury of this cool band. The …
 
Thornhill has been exciting audiences for a few years now. Another monster band, hailing from the land down under, this Australian quintet knows how to put it down and wrap you around their sugary fingers. I was honored to chat with frontman Jacob Charlton about the way the music business and the band's fanbase has gravitated increasingly towards t…
 
Vince and Jason ask Orlando Magic NBA star Jonathan Isaac about his religious values and their impact on his career, his thoughts on the BLM movement, and how woke politics has influenced the sports industry. Jonathan Isaac is an American professional basketball player for the Orlando Magic of the NBA. Isaac was selected sixth overall by the Magic …
 
Maria Lessing, the singer from the lush and lovely Future Palace, was my guest on the show today and I'm 100% sure you're going to love her voice. She's a great emotive vocalist with a big range and a certain way about her, and she has the performance chops of someone who's been in the business for a long time, yet she's still so young. Future Pala…
 
I love Immerse. A lot. I get it... I'm prone to hyperbole but the music hits me in the right place and the band is just so extremely talented. So, to these ears, Immerse is all the things...and yet melodically sublime. I spoke to Josh Armitage a few weeks back and our chat was what you'd expect. We had a great time and connected over everything fro…
 
Hunter Young, the possessor of a truly ethereal voice is a man focused on the challenge of overcoming. Hunter has stated in interviews that he shouldn't be called brave or anyone to look up to, but I absolutely disagree with this statement. If one is willing to write the truth and sing the truth, they are exactly what the world needs and Hunter des…
 
I've never done an interview with a guy in a restroom before, but Freiburger and I figured it out. He's an eccentric man, coming from a different world and culture. The new album by Deathcave comes out soon. Seattle based doom doesn't get better. Enjoy the echo! Time codes: 2:00 Fun the bathroom at a car dealership 5:00 Positive and respectful 10:0…
 
In this episode, Vince and Jason sit down with Newsnation host Leland Vittert to discuss what we did wrong in the Uvalde, TX shooting, the cultural rot of America and the downfall of Americans' trust in the media.

Kevin Kline, the fantastic vocalist from Valleyheart, is a talent of epic proportions and a human leader that we should all appreciate, even if he doesn't feel this way about himself at times. There's just something about the man. Kevin is kind, loving and open to ideas, proving that one can put all their talents out there to sing directly into the…
 
You can see and hear RXPTRS coming a mile away. What's most amazing is how they've figured out, in this day and age, to bring something new and fresh when it should be an utterly impossible thing to accomplish. How exactly does one invent a new sound? Just what is it about these guys? And what the heck were they thinking with that name? Well, if yo…
 
The 4th time is the charm. Jimmy Boman and I spent the last few months working feverishly to coordinate our schedules and it took a lot of tries, but I'm glad we worked it out because Jimmy is a great musician and a wonderful guest. His band, Outshine, hails from Sweden, and his music reflects the culture and sound of a dark brooding winter better …

Rob Schmitt is an American journalist and news anchor. He is currently the main host for Newsmax TV nightly news program ‘Rob Schm…
 
Wow upon wow. Todays interview with the very talented Austin McAuley is a drive down a single wide lane of hope and loss and I am floored as well as honored by the transparency of our connection. Austin's band, Limbs, are releasing the new EP 'Coma Year' on June 24th and it's a revelation. Pure, intimate, and surprisingly complex, in my opinion, it…

My guests today, Brandon and Caleb from sci-fi mathmetal pioneers Serling have developed a new type of progressive deathcore and created a sound so terrifying and new that closet metal lovers everywhere are clamoring for their unique approach to the genre. They've created a strange new sound which is amazingly compelling, especially since it oftent…
 
Howard Fang is one lucky son of a gun. He met his future band, Slovenia's Within Destruction, on tour a few years back and then just as his own band started to fizzle, the guys in Within asked him to join, and here we are. Howard had a few minutes on tour and we held our interview just prior to their set, so you'll have to excuse all the background…

A state of play exists for all of us, if we'll give ourselves the chance to embrace it and enjoy its rejuvinating effects. When I met Hawaii based author, Steve Rix, I knew he had access to something I hadn't felt in a long time. What was it? What was he smiling from ear to ear at virtually every thing I said? Was he merely a master salesman? Was I…
