Earlier this month SIEGE vocalist Kevin Mahoney died at the age of 46. And although his tenure in this legendary US fast hardcore band was short, their Drop Dead demo pretty much started grindcore and powerviolience. Hellbound’s Jay H. Gorania has collected the thoughts of some of the leaders in grindcore and sludge, including members of NAPALM DEATH, EYEHATEGOD, EXIT-13, KILL THE CLIENT, SOILENT GREEN and more to get their reactions on the sudden passing of Kevin and the impact that his created art has had on their scene.
Love him or hate him, there is no denying that A.C.’s Seth Putnam was one of the most controversial figures ever in extreme music. On the eve of the release of their new album, Justin M. Norton spoke with him about the new “F**kin’ A” album, surviving an overdose and how it did not make him change his lifestyle, as well as his actual, undeniable love for the music of Motley Crue and Buckcherry.
Since Seth passed away unexpectedly over the weekend, we are re-running our recent interview with him, one of the last interviews he did before passing away. RIP.
Today’s staff interrogation is with Hellbound Radio co-host and all around good dude Kevin Stewart-Panko.
