Episode 7 – I ventured out to Swimming With Sharks Records HQ and sat down with Noah Robertson, label founder and drummer for national metal band The Browning while he was taking a break between tours . We discussed why the label was started, haters, why he signs certain bands and upcoming tours with his band among a handful of other topics
After leaving and getting set up back at the TorchCast studio we played the interview I did with Straight Line Stitch on the June 7th show in Fort Worth after their set. I also discussed my thoughts on bands not properly promoting shows to the fullest extent possible and debuted new music from Bloodied and Klank.
We played music from The Browning’s Earache Records debut “Burn This World” plus music new music from Laconic, The Vile Impurity, and Dei Aemeth (Featuring Noah on drums).
TorchCast Episode 6 – I am joined by all 5 members of Phoenix, Arizona hard rock band The Sammus Theory on their way up to Kansas for more stops on “The Apocalyptic Takeover Tour”. We sat down to discuss multiple things such as the current line up, the “Your Time” and “Pure” videos, Jagermeister, their stance on Record Labels and much more.
We played “Your Time”, “In Line” and “Nobody Knows” from their album “Trusting The Liar” as well as “Pure” from the album “See (It) Through”

Episode 4 – In this episode I was asked to drive out to Denton to meet the “Space Pagan” band Urizen, on the way there I was abducted along with Katie Boyd from Sawed Off Productions and RYA Entertainment Group. Unfortunately the sound quality in space is not that good however we were able to figure out that basically Urizen needs money to go on tour starting this weekend. Thomas and Daniel also announced the new member which is none other than Rustin of American High fame. We agreed upon three songs from their latest record Universe: Red which were “Boxmen”, “Nothing is Epic” and “The Lonely Resident”. After the members of Urizen determined that I was actually costing them money instead of helping them make money they sent Katie and I back to Earth.
After returning to Earth, KB and I sat down and read some great articles from Craigslist about Dragon Slaying and a metal guitarist looking for a band to play with in the Austin area. We also had Katie tell us what bitches love….
