Kragen Lum- Heathen

January 27th, 2020

It's no secret at this point that I have a nostalgic fondness for music from the 80's and 90s, and the metal scene that grew out of the Bay Area was perhaps the most influential on my guitar playing in my early days of learning. To this day, I still find myself drawn to those early sounds. Fortunately more me, many of those bands are still around. I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to chat with Kragen Lum, who plays in pioneering Bay Area thrash band Heathen. Additionally, he spent considerable time touring live with one of the most legendary bands to come out of that era: the mighty Exodus. Kragen was kind of enough to fill me in on what's going on in the Heathen camp with an upcoming re-release as well as the status of the almost-completed new album. We also talked about his time in Exodus, his former career in the video game industry, and his passion project of transcribing guitar books. This is a really in depth conversation that covers many facets of his career in the music industry. Check it out!

Justin Roth- War Curse

January 20th, 2020

Today's guest is none other than Justin Roth, outspoken guitarist of Cincinnati thrash Band War Curse. Fresh off his tour manager duties with OG thrashers Exodus on their 70,000 tons of metal gig, we had a truly epic (and very long) conversation about his band, his various roles with other heavy hitting bands, his thoughts on what it takes to survive in the industry, and his view on the various double standards that musicians (and people in general) are often held to. We went down quite a few rabbit holes in this one, and Justin's brutal honesty is both surprising and refreshing. Want to know about life on the road and in the studio? Want the origin of War Curse and his relationships with bands like Exodus, Heathen, and Exhorder? Want to know what kinds of people piss him off? Maybe you want to hear about his deep love for Sacred Reich. Still not enough? How an exclusive announcement about what War Curse is up to right now and a friendly game of "Who Sucks More?"  Then armor up and check out this 90 minute pile of awesomeness! #triggerwarning

Ray Currie- Outliar

January 8th, 2020

Picking up where we left off a few months back, heavy-hitting axe wielder Ray Currie from NC metal monsters Outliar Returns to Misery Point Radio to discuss the release of Outliar's new EP Thrashing the Vault, which was unleashed upon the word just a few days ago on Jan 3rd. We talked about the process of recording this EP, how they approached breathing new life into older material, the CD release show, and the upcoming epic show with OG Bay Area legends Vio-Lence. This was a fun conversation, and seeing a previously discussed project finally come to life was definitely awesome. So when you get done listening to Nothin But A Good Time (Ray's personal favorite song of all time) check this one out!

Paul Ray- False Prophet

January 1st, 2020

Happy New Year!

To celebrate the first episode of 2020, I am joined once again by Paul Ray from NC metal pioneers False Prophet. We covered a lot of ground in this conversation: Their recent tour with Obituary, the release of their new Self-Titled EP (the first official recordings in almost 30 years), their experiences working with legendary producer (and Misery Point Guest) Jamie King, and their reunion with OG drummer Raymond Martin. An awesome conversation with a super cool dude. Do yourself a favor and check this one out!
