This week on GIMME METAL:
Memoriam Guest DJ Special – To celebrate the release of Memoriam’s fourth LP To The End, out now on Reaper Entertainment, GIMME METAL welcomes the one and only Karl Willetts! Legendary throat shredder for Bolt Thrower from 1988-1994 and 2004-2016, Willetts’ influence on UK and international metal can not go understated. After founding Memoriam with Benediction bassist Frank Healy, the band has torn it up at full throttle with its inimitable style of death metal, releasing a stream of LPs culminating with this latest blaster. Welcome Memoriam to GIMME METAL!
Horndal Guest DJ Special – Distinctly Scandinavian, Horndal fuses the driving rhythms unique to the best of Swedish forward-thinking hardcore whilst preserving the venom of their punk scene alongside the heaviness of the country’s finest. But it’s in the song-writing that Horndal truly excels, effortlessly weaving their narrative of urban decay into their dynamic and immediate fist-to-the-face anthems. Welcome the band for their GIMME METAL DJ takeover this Wednesday and grab their latest LP Lake Drinker out April 9th on Prosthetic Records.
The Lion’s Daughter Guest DJ Special – For the first part of their career, The Lion’s Daughter was deeply rooted in blackened sludge metal. However, when it came time for album number three, the St. Louis trio abandoned all tradition and traversed into new territory through bold experimentations. The resulting Future Cult is a synth-laden metal record that could easily serve as the score to a Dario Argento film. Now, the band picks up where it left off, with Skin Show, out on Season Of Mist, marking a new direction that cannot be labeled or defined. GIMME METAL welcomes the band to their first ever guest DJ special. Dig in and chat live!
