Chris Hubbard- Thirteenth Sign

November 25th, 2019

 I  was recently introduced to UK metal band Thirteenth Sign, and I became an instant fan. In a fantastic turn of cosmic fate, I happened to be recently acquainted with guitarist Chris Hubbard, one of the founding members, and I was stoked when he agreed to come on the show. We had an awesome chat about the origins of the band, their innovative style, their songwriting process, their various lineup changes, and their upcoming album. Chris also dropped an exclusive bit of news regarding their upcoming album, which got me even more pumped up about this band than I already was. This is an insanely talented band, and I'm excited to share this one with you. A fair bit of warning, the Skype Audio was not playing nice on this one, but it's still thoroughly enjoyable and more than listenable. Also, this will mark the last new episode of the year for Misery Point Radio, so take this opportunity to close out the year with a treat from across the globe!

Joe Castro-Film Director/Producer/Special Effects Supervisor

November 5th, 2019

Today I was honored to have Hollywood filmmaker and special effects guru Joe Castro join me for an epic conversation about his amazing life in the film industry. We went down many rabbit holes in this long conversation, covering many facets of his career: His origin story and how he got going in the business, his personal struggles that drove him to succeed against all odds, his diverse and exciting roles as a producer, director, writer, and special effects artist, and some of the finer details about some of his projects he's created. And for my musically inclined followers, we also dove into the fact that Joe is a huge music fan, and he shared some really awesome stories about his love for bands like Iron Maiden, Dio, King Diamond, and Slayer and how those bands and more inspired him to create some of his early masterpieces. And of course the many other artists like Moby that inspire him today. This is one of my longest interviews to date, and it is packed with so much good stuff I promise you don't want to miss any of it. Especially the part about stretchy scrotums. This might go on to be one of the most quoted episodes yet. So prepare yourself for piles of post-Halloween Awesomeness!

October 14th, 2019

I'm joined in-studio by Bradly "The Wizard" Miranda and Kyle Miller from Seattle Pop Punk/Power Pop band Less Than Three. We talked about the origin and reformation of the band, the new EP "Say No to the Suits," the recording process, their epic video shoot at Seattle's London Bridge Studios, and of course we spent a lot of time marveling at the fact that Brad sounds like a girl. (JK Brad. You're super manly). And after all the world changing conversation, Brad's brother Brian Miranda joined Kyle and Brad for a super epic live acoustic performance, including one world premiere never-before-played-live song.

 I recently had the opportunity to chat with Cynthia Luna Frost, founding vocalist of Swedish concept metal band SNOW I.U. On a Skype call from Sweden, we discussed a myriad of topics: The Origin of Snow I.U and the development of the concept, the recording of the band's 2 EPs, the upcoming single and UK tour, the development and formation of a music festival called Snowfest, and some deeply personal revelations that took MPR to new levels of conversation.

Hayden Thomas- Hard Times, Simple Songs

I met up with Folk/Americana artist Hayden Thomas before a live performance at Guitar Cafe in Silverdale, WA to discuss his debut album Hard Times, Simple Songs. We had an epic conversation about the recording of the album, his musical direction, the origin of his unique sound, and his goals for his musical future.  This was an interview that was close to a year in the works, and I'm super stoked to finally be able to share this with you. Make sure you follow Hayden on his social media pages,  download/stream his album, and go see a live performance, which is the only way to get your hands on a physical CD!

So many things were discussed: his award winning work with Between the Buried and me as well as other  legendary artists, his thoughts on the industry, his take on recording philosophy, preferred techniques, technological advancements, signature Kemper Profiler bundles, and so much more. On top of that, his band Swift is getting set to relaunch for a 20th anniversary celebration!

Michael Borders- Massacre

June 14th, 2019

While in Orlando for the Massacre/False Prophet/Druid Lord show I got a chance to hang out with Michael Borders, the original (and often uncredited) original bassist for OG Death Metal band Massacre. What follows is a really informative and honest conversation about the early days of massacre, his exit from the band, his re-entry into the band, his thoughts on his role, and his opinions of the past and present of the industry. We also took a completely unrelated side-trip into his ties to the Pacific Northwest, his love of the outdoors, and other piles of randomness! This was a really fun conversation with someone who has not done a ton of interviews in the last several years, so take advantage of this rare opportunity to hear a perspective you don't often have access to!
