Witchfinder Radio For the Week of August 13-19, 2012

Hey folks! Long time no post! It’s been a ridiculously busy summer in radio/OIMA/father land for me so I’m way behind on posts and reviews. I’ve cut way back on shows and am hoping to have a whole whack of stuff for you to read (and perhaps listen to) in the coming weeks. Starting today though, I thought I would post the playlists for the main radio shows that I still do (Blowing Up The Lakehead [Monday 11pm-2am] and CanKnuckle Tracks [Tuesday 10pm-1am]). You can find out more at

Sabaton – Carolus Rex

If you like hoisting a mug while you sing with your mates and pumping your fist in the air while singing the glories of battle or prefer to imagine yourself with one foot on a monitor, leading a crowd of enthusiastic head bangers in a chorus of “Gott Mitt Uns, As We All Stand United” then you Will LOVE this record.

The Order of Chaos – Burn These Dreams album review + interview with Amanda Kiernan

INTO ETERNITY is one of the headliners at this weekend’s Manitoba Metalfest in Winnipeg MB along with SUFFOCATION and UNTIMELY DEMISE. It will also be one of their first shows with new lead vocalist Amanda Kiernan, who also fronts Edmonton’s THE ORDER OF CHAOS. Here is a review of TOOC’s latest album Burn These Dreams, as well as an interview with Amanda about both bands, done by Hellbound’s own Jason Wellwood.

Blue Coupe – Tornado On The Tracks

I’d love to say that Tornado on the Tracks blew me away, but it didn’t. It’s definitely catchy and a good listen, but it’s a lot more mellow and not quite as memorable as I had hoped. I think it’s a good first step for the band, hopefully this will result in further albums from the band as the talent is definitely there, it just didn’t come out in these songs.
