It's been a while since we last spoke. I'd like to thank everyone for hanging in there. In this solo episode I bring you guys up to speed with what I was up to during the summer break as well as discuss the recent dates with Eyehategod and The Obsessed

When I started doing this, the most important thing to me was communication. We can’t all have the same ideas and opinions about things. These days, everyone seems to be at each other’s throats, pointing finger, blaming and drawing lines in the sand. There is a lot of evil in the world, so it’s important to remember that we all have a lot more in common than we care to think. To me it’s important to find that common ground and go from there.


Intro; “Dark River” – Coil

Outro: “Planets Collide” – Crowbar

The idea for this episode came from Patreon. We talk about music and movies a lot on this show, so we're going to take a different approach and talk about some important books, short stories and poems that have helped lead me down this path.  Hopefully they can help you out as well.

Last week, Tombs played Hellfest, one of the coolest, most well-run music festivals in Europe, if not the entire planet. Check out my rundown of the whole whirlwind of van rides, flights, bread, cheese and hard rocking.

Colin Burns is an artist, musician and all-around creative force. I caught up with him during the opening of Cult Awareness Network, his art show that is currently up at the Storefront Project in New York City.


I met Colin way back in the early 90’s, during my Boston years. He fronted two of my favorite bands from that era, La Gritona and Slaughtershack.
