The guest for this episode is Rick Giordano, member of the synth-driven horror metal trio from St. Louis, The Lion’s Daughter. They have a new album out, Skin Show, via Season of Mist that dropped on April 9th, 2021. The thing that really pops out with Skin Show is the visuals, from the album cover artwork to the cinematography of the music videos. It really makes them stand out, almost intriguing to someone who has never heard them before. During our conversation, we talked about those visuals and how they complement the music, the making of Skin Show and how that differed from previous album, how they got discovered, and 80s horror and action movies!
The guests for this episode are Billy Obey, Joey Black, and Lee Carver, the Horrorcore Hip-Hop trio from Ohio known as Alla Xul Elu making their return to Fresh is the Word to talk about all sorts of gross and horrific things, including their new album MauXuLeum, out now via Majik Ninja Entertainment. The new album is produced entirely by Detroit’s own Slasher Dave (producer of late 70s/early 80s influenced original instrumental horror/exploitation soundtrack music and member of metal band Acid Witch), so we talk about how it is to work with one producer for a whole album as we go track-by-track through MauXuLeum. We also talk about our favorite spooky tunes and horror flicks. It’s always crazy shenanigans when I have these Xuligans on the show.
