Here is what we played on the Sunday, July 14th edition of Hellbound Radio. Hellbound Radio happens Sundays 9 PM till midnight on INDI 101 FM.
Hellbound Metal: “Two weeks in a row! That must be some kind of record around here. Truth be told, last night’s show was more of a solo mission than a group effort. Sean was still down in Port Dover, ON celebrating Father’s Day with his pops and Albert is currently on call for a film he is doing extra work on, so this show was done entirely by Mr. Kevi Metal himself. No surprise then that, for the most part, everything on this show is essentially new releases, as KSP likes to keep it current. Anyway, here’s what was heard on last night’s show…”
One believes that what makes Omnivium a successful album is that it is willing to take chances, whether it be playing a slower, more intricate melodic passage when the listener is expecting a battering ram riff, or indoctrinating your ears with further gravity blast bliss and shredding guitar when the average human’s arms and headbanging cranium would want to fly off.
This marks the final part of our coverage of the 70000 TONS OF CRUISE festival, recapping the activities of day four on the boat. This was a full day at sea with music from early morning until the late hours of the evening.
In our fourth installment, Adrien, Kevin and Sean review live sets by SANCTUARY, VOIVOD, RAVEN, DEATH ANGEL, TESTAMENT and more. Live photos by Albert Mansour.
Last week the inaugural 70000 TONS OF METAL cruise sailed from Miami, FL to Cozumel, Mexico and back and featured live performances by forty-two metal bands. Hellbound.ca was lucky enough to have been able to send four of its contributors on the cruise and here is what they had to say about getting to Miami and the first evening’s performances.

After tonight’s show we now know why Dying Fetus deserve to be a bonafide headliner. Holy fuck! What a ferocious machine these guys are live. They have the songs and riffs and you cannot get any tighter than they are right now.
The very recently released Arsis album, Starve for the Devil manages to fast and provide guitar parts that are memorable. The vocals are good and growley sounding but listening closely the words are almost understandable.
Live review by Ola Mazzuca; Photos by Adam Wills There is a certain magic quality about metal shows; magic in which no matter what…
There will be some complaints that Starve for the Devil utilizes a more traditional rock/metal songwriting style, however, the riffs are still challenging and hook laden, and because the time changes are more restrained than before, the songs have an openness that lets you get into the riff and commence air guitaring.
