There aren’t many bands around here with the talent SJL has and with everyone splitting off and pursing new projects maybe some new great bands will rise from the ashes but there won’t be a better tech jazz band around here for years to come.
Jason Wellwood had the chance to speak to onetime DIO guitarist Craig Goldy, who played in the band in the late 80s. Jason spoke to Craig earlier this month about the recent DIO live album Dio At Donington UK: Live 1983 & 1987. The latter show was Craig’s first major festival appearance as a member of DIO, and reminisces about both the performance and that first European tour in this three part interview.

You may remember that about a month ago Hellbound published an interview that Jason Wellwood did with the one and only Phil Anselmo. This interview was originally done for Mr. Wellwood’s radio show “Blowing Up The Lakehead”, which airs each and every Monday night on CILU FM in Thunder Bay. Since it was so successful on the site – it is now our number two most read article of all-time – we jumped at the chance to also put up the audio files of the entire interview when Mr Wellwood offered.
Here are some things that went online in the past week that caught our attention and we thought were worth sharing.
I originally wrote the following review for Exclaim! and it appeared in their February 2009 issue. I thought it would be a good accompanying piece to Adrien’s AC/DC book review that we posted today…
Here is the playlist for the November 14th edition of Hellbound Radio
Static Impulse was definitely crafted very carefully; there is an attention to detail that many bands these days (and more so artists putting out solo records to stretch from their band a little) just don’t get. Again, the album sounds like it was recorded by a band, the song writing is excellent and all the musicians put in a terrific performance. Labrie and Guillory have definitely outdone themselves this time.
The Handshake Hellbound Clip Of The Week features an interview with VOIVOD’s Blacky and GORGUTS’ Kevin Hufnagel that is a must see!
“I think the biggest thing that has helped with the resurgence in classic power/speed metal is probably blogs and the internet. Plus, there’s so much crappy music out there that it seems only the classic metal/power/speed bands are worth listening to since they still stand the test of time.”
