Episode #245: Butcher Bear – DJ, Producer, Owner of (iN)Sect Records, Co-Founder of Exploded Drawing, Drummer in Black Mercy

The guest for this episode is Butcher Bear, the Austin, TX-based owner of (iN)Sect Records, co-founder of Exploded Drawing, and drummer in the band Black Mercy. Always donning the full-on bear costume, I go way back with him from the days of my original Renaissance Soul website (I did a (iN)Sect podcast mix a while back called ‘The Demon Within’), and Butcher Bear has always been a huge supporter of Detroit music having released projects on (iN)Sect Records featuring Guilty Simpson, House Shoes, Self Says, Chanes, Dakim, and Nameless. As long as we have known each other, this was the first time we talked at any length, and it was great to finally catch up with Butcher Bear.


Episode #244: As Everything Unfolds – Vocalist Charlie Rolfe and Guitarist Adam Kerr of 6-Piece Melodic Post-Hardcore Band from High Wycombe, U.K., Debut Album ‘Within Each Lies The Other’ Out Now Via Long Branch Records

The guests for this episode are members of As Everything Unfolds, the 6-piece melodic post-hardcore band from High Wycombe, U.K., vocalist Charlie Rolfe and guitarist Adam Kerr. They just released their debut album Within Each Lies The Other via Long Branch Records on March 26, 2021. From the time that Charlie Rolfe looked for musicians to start a band on an online directory, As Everything Unfolds have quickly become a band creating quite the buzz in the metal world while becoming a family of their own. Charlie and Adam run through the creation of As Everything Unfolds and the lessons about life and music they went through growing in adulthood as a band. With a mix of beautiful melodies over edgy riffs, Within Each Lies The Other shows the organic talents of the member of As Everything Unfolds. The youthful energy of the band comes out in their music and every part of their public personas as being able to chat with Charlie and Adam made me just fall in love with this band.
