Ep 5: Mountain of Doom23/03/2011 Duração: 01h47min
While saving Dario's liver from excessive drinking and your ears from vulgar display of unfunny stories, Mandy, the core of the Extreme Pear rejoins her sidekick Dario and the Extreme Metal Podcast churns out another brutal episode. After getting stood up twice, the third date with AMON AMARTH results in a cool albeit brief interview with Johan S√∂derberg, the guitar player. Johan talks to us about the new album, his influences and much more and the Extreme Pair summarizes "Surtur Rising" and plays a couple of premiere AMON AMARTH tracks from the upcoming release. We also review a black metal documentary "Until the Light Takes Us", dig into our own closets in search of the most unextreme skeletons. We find Stryper, but nobody claims that one. Another hot episode of Focus on Extreme Metal turns brutal when we attempt to launch a dual-channel synchronized fartburp. We also play some music as picked by our listeners, deliver the metal news with new releases and tour report followed by birthdays and we end the
Ep 4: Extrement All09/03/2011 Duração: 01h45min
The first (and hopefully last ever) episode of Focus on Extreme Metal featuring Dario exclusively features an interview with SCALE THE SUMMIT guitar player Chris Letchford. Chris talks about the new album "The Collective", the dark nature of the album and it's creative development as well as the dream come true tour with Dream Theater. The new episode of the Extreme Pair (without the vocals of the better half) also concentrates on instrumental music of the extreme variety. The bands featured on the show come from all aspects of extremeness, some brutally technical, some more proggy, while some are totally deranged and devoid of any scales with heart stopping time signatures. Some of the bands heard on the episode include Behold the... Arctopus, Spastic Ink, Sleep Terror, Blotted Science, Cloudkicker, Exivious, Abolishment of Hate and Gordian Knot. Some of the music presented should come with a health warming label. Dario also presents an unofficially licensed from the Bonebat Show "Pisses Me Off" segment. O
Ep 3: 70,000 Tons of Filth24/02/2011 Duração: 01h40min
This episode starts off cold with the darkness of Cradle of Filth, featuring and interview with guitarist Paul Allender. He talks about his musical influences growing up, his hiatus from the band when Cradle rose above underground and he also talks about the new album, Darkly, Darkly Venus Aversa. We then switch scenery, because we find a need to escape a cold winter snap that brings sickness and despair to the Extreme Pair. We take this opportunity to warm up and talk exotic metal with Rob Cranny (Northern Storm Records) who has been to four Wacken Open Air festivals as well as the newest and coolest fest, The "70,000 tons of Metal", a four day cruise that took 2,000 lucky metalheads and 40 metal bands on a journey nobody is likely to ever forget. We talk to Rob about the experience of sharing a large cruise ship with devoted metalheads and non-stop music coming from three stages on board of 70,000 tons of metal. Our new episode also features Metal Swapping (featuring Into Eternity and Canvas Solaris), New
Ep 2: Reek of Carcass08/02/2011 Duração: 01h48min
Mandy and Dario had a great chat with a pioneer of the second wave of extreme metal, Bill Steer, known for his work with Carcass and Napalm Death. Bill talked to us about his latest Firebird album, tough times surrounding the last Carcass studio album, and an even more difficult process of reuniting with the band. Bill spends a bit of time discussing Heartwork and talks in depth about its impact on the band. For us it is always a pleasure to talk to such an inluencial individual such as Bill. Mandy and Dario also dress the upcoming episode with Carcass music, and typical features of Focus on Metal, such as news, new releases, tour report and the return of metal birthdays. Episode 22 of Focus on Metal is feature-packed with many surprises. Naturally expect off the wall humor you’ve come to expect from the Extreme Pair.
