On August 23 – 25 the Southern Ontario Metal Fest came to Hamilton’s Club Absinthe and Hellbound’s Laura Wiebe was there to soak it all in. Here is her recap of the festival, with live photography by Adam Wills.
Here is the playlist for the September 1, 2013 edition of Hellbound Radio, broadcast live from C101.5 FM, Hamilton ON Canada
Here is what we played on the August 18, 2013 edition of Hellbound Radio.
Hellbound Metal: “So, as you may or may not have noticed, we took June 30th off to spend with our significant others and get ready for Canada Day. However, we were back in full force this past Sunday – or at least Kevi Metal was. Yes, we made Mr. Metal do a solo show once again, but thankfully he had loads of new stuff to play. Here’s what he spun…”
Hellbound Metal: “Monster Truck recently had the opportunity to perform at Download 2013 in the UK, one of the bigger UK hard rock/metal fests and they have just released a video of a song from their performance there. Please take a look at our hometown boys playing Furiosity’s lead off track “Old Train” before thousands of UK punters recently.”
Hellbound Metal: “A day later than usual, but here is Sunday night’s playlist! We had all three hosts in on the show on Sunday night – for at least 20 minutes at the same time even. Sean was late getting to the show and Albert needed to leave early, so we only had all the team in for a little bit but it was a good show regardless.”
Well holy shit, it’s a Hellbound Radio playlist! Well, there actually hasn’t been a playlist for a while, as it has been nearly a month since we have done the show live. Never fear however, faithful listeners/followers, for Hellbound Radio returned on Sunday night with a show jam packed full of new releases.
“Graveyard had tapped into a human condition that made a roomful of strangers no longer seem strange. It’s not something you can experience every day, but it’s certainly something worth waiting for.”
Live review and photography by Renee Trotier
I’ve been living and attending concerts in Toronto for over seven years now, so it’s safe to say I’ve seen a few local bands who got big well before they were known commodities. But now, I can even say I’ve seen a band from Hamilton go from the Toronto scene to the national stage. That band just happens to be called Monster Truck.
On November 14th the awesome double bill of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and ROYAL THUNDER played just down the street from Hellbound HQ, performing an intimate show at Hamilton’s Corktown Pub. Here is a review of the night by Sean Palmerston, with cool black and white photography by Adam Wills.
