Interview with Brian Fair of SHADOWS FALL

Brian Fair of western Massachusetts’ Shadow Fall rejoined All Knowing Force this past week to discuss the band’s new album, Fire From The Sky. This album, which we have no doubt will be killer, is set for a May 15th release date. Darius also went and saw their tour opener at the Exit/In in Nashville. Check it out!

Buried Treasures:  Paw – Death to Traitors

“The first album ever to “speak to me” was Death to Traitors by Paw. I was in my early teens at the time, doing the Nirvana thing, the Weezer Blue Album thing, the Siamese Dream thing, etc.” Click through to read the article!

Interview with POD Frontman Sonny Sandoval

“I was flying solo when Sonny Sandoval came on the show. My morning was grueling. He was in the midst of doing a plethora of boring, formulaic interviews. So, to amuse ourselves, we talked about Bad Brains, the hood, and fake peeps.”

Interview with Mike Tyranski of JANUS

About once a year, I hear a new record from a band that is either brand new or that I paid little attention to beforehand and am completely blown away. That’s if I’m lucky. Enter Chicago’s Janus and their new album Nox Aeris. Guitarist Mike Tyranski joined our program where we discussed the band and their newest release, which is a piece of art that gets better with every listen.

Interview with Hank3

Hank3 released four new albums on September 6, 2011, a mix of country, doom-rock, and speed metal, with a little cattle callin’ here and there. Entitled Ghost to a Ghost/Gutter Town (a 2-disc country record), 3 Bar Ranch Cattle Callin’ (a metal record in the newly anointed cattle core genre) and Attention Deficit Domination (a doom rock record), these albums were released on Hank3’s own record label, Hank3 Records (through Megaforce Records), and feature guest appearances by Tom Waits, Les Claypool of Primus, Alan King of Hellstomper, and Williams’ dog, Trooper. And in 30 minutes of audio, we address this and more.

BT: Judas Priest – A Touch of Evil

I can listen to Van Halen with Dave and I can listen to them with Sammy. I can listen to Priest with Halford and I can listen to them with Tim Owens. Good music is good music, and Ripper absolutely owns this song. Turn this song up LOUD.

Candlebox Concert Review – 4/4/2012 – 12th & Porter – Nashville, TN

This is a great band and if you’re like me and have never given them your proper attention, now would be a great time to start.

One-on-One with ‘Dirge Within’ Guitarist Shaun Glass

“I’ve always said Shaun Glass is an open book. Our discussions are always fun, interesting, and laid back. Whether or not you like his music, he’s worthy of your respect. Shaun Glass bleeds Dirge Within. Morning, noon, and night, 24/7, he’s about this band. That’s no joke and not something I’m writing for the sake of this article. If everyone approached music and their bands like he approaches Dirge Within, the music business would be a much more honest, better place.”

BT: Judas Priest – Hard as Iron

Released in 1988, Ram It Down boasted one single, a cover of Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” Hands down, this cover is absolutely terrible, inexcuseable and one of the worst recordings in the Priest catalog. We’re not here to talk about that, though.
