If you're an underground metal fan, you most likely know Joe Capizzi from bands like Cattlepress, The Dying Light and Iabhorer. If you're into Brazillian Jiu Jitsu you definitely know him from his relentless involvement in decades of grappling tournaments or from his academy New York City Brazillian Jiu Jitsu.
I've been kicking the idea of having Joe on the podcast pretty much since I started doing it. It's with great honor that I present Joe to you guys.
A few months ago, I was surfing around youtube, checking out martial arts videos, and I came across a clip of this maniac challenging dudes off the street to punch him in the face. I watched him slip, bob, weave and elude every attack thrown at him.
That maniac is Trav, this episode's guest. He can teach you to fight so pay attention.
The year is pretty much over. By the time most of you get to this, you'll hopefully be on your way to holiday plans.
I got together with my buddy Magnus Henriksson of Bazillion Points Publishing to go over some of our favorite records of the last year
I'm back from tour. It was a grind, but all in all, everything went well. I'd like to welcome Kristen Korvette, editor and founder of SLUTIST, a sex-positive, modern feminist blog and the host of THE B-SIDES : NYC SESSION.
Charlie, aside from being Kristen's husband, is our new drummer.
This podcast was recorded during the Pallbearer, Tombs, Vattnet Viskar Fall 2014 Tour. I sat down with Nic, Casey and Seamus in the green room of Local 506 in Chapel Hill. It was Halloween and we were gearing up for a killer night of metal, brotherhood and sexy witches. #blackridersofdeath
Coming at you from the Proud Highway, I had a change to meet up with Eric Haycraft of Real Fighters Gym / Glory Kickboxing for a great conversation covering his background in martial arts, the genesis of his Real Fighters Gym and his involvement with Glory Kickboxing. This episode was recording in a lo-fi manner, so I apologize for the slight noise for the first few minutes of our talk. ENJOY!!
I welcome back comics creator and bro Josh Bayer. This episode is geared toward those of you who dig comics. Aside from Slayer, we pretty much only talk about comics.
Nightbreed! is the alter-ego of Aleix Martinez and Jaclyn Sheer. They join the podcast to discuss their plans to take over the night.
In this episode I had to opportunity to hang Al and Danny Kavadlo, two NYC-based but globally active fitness visionaries. We touch on many different aspects of functional strength and conditioning training, their published books and how intense physical training can change your life.
I met up with author / esoteric scholar Tom Eisele for an interesting conversation about the occult, Tarot and what may lie beyond the veil. If you would like to get in touch with Tom for an appointment, you can find him at Enchantments 212-288-4394. The shop is located at 424 E 9th Street, New York, NY 10009
