Back in August, Philip H. Anselmo and The Illegals made a tour stop here at The Intersection. It was most likely one of the most intense metal shows I have ever seen. Let's just say, Phil knows how to command a crowd. So of course, how could I not take this opportunity to interview this Metal Legend!
Dethklok, everybody's favorite animated metal band, are taking their music to new heights with the band's 'Metalocalypse: The Doomstar Requiem A Klok Opera.' The epic event will air on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim on Oct. 27, but we've the exclusive premiere of an extra song, 'Blazing Star,' which will only be available on the opera's full-length soundtrack, which is set for an Oct. 29 release.
Last night in Detroit, Metalheads flocked to the the city to check out the rare occasion when the Swedish Death Metal group WATAIN hits the town for a bad ass show. Sadly I missed it, but my friends from MOSHPIT NATION checked it out. Also, it's not everyday where WATAIN checks in on WZZM 13's TAKE FIVE studios!
Man, do I love a good Mushroomhead show! I have seen them 10+ times, and each time gets better and better. It is really hard to believe that Mushroomhead has been on the scene for 20 years! They will be celebrating the 20 year existence with a huge tour, and one very big special suprise for all of the 'Shroomheads out there...
A month or two ago, an amazing show that features Amon Amarth, Children of Bodom, Battlecross, and Huntress came to the Intersection. I started listening to Huntress and I knew I had to meet this band. Little did I know I was also going to do Jager shots and sing the NBA Jam theme song with them.
With the announcement of their upcoming album "Battle Maximus," it is only logical for the Scum Dogs to come from their planet to bring devastation and destruction. What better planet than earth? Especially when they pinpoint The Intersection in downtown Grand Rapids.
MoshPit Nation...a local grassroots groups letting you know what is going on in the world of heavy metal locally. Looking for a heavy metal show to check out? MoshPit Nation has the hook up for you.

This show has been booked for some time, but for you extreme heavy metalheads (like myself, might want to check out this show. Phil Anselmo recently released his album "Walk Through Exits Only" and it is some REALLY heavy stuff. If you want to check out Phil LIVE, your chance is on August 7th!
It's a big day for Five Finger Death Punch! Their BRAND NEW album named "The Wrong Side of Heaven and the Righteous Side of Hell" has hit the shelves and you can pick it up today! In support of this new album, I got to chat with guitarist Zoltan.
