This week Mikael Stanne of Dark Tranquility is our guest! We discuss bringing in two new guitarists for the band’s forthcoming album, Moment, their plans to eventually celebrate Moment live, and an update on the scheduled fall 2021 North American tour after letting go of booking agent John Finberg following allegations of sexual harassment. Mikael also tells us which of the band’s albums is his favorite from a lyrical perspective, which artists passing away hit him the hardest in recent years, and how he’s been burning through all of his live DVDs during the pandemic.
Petar, Brandon,Jozalyn, and Sylvia discuss the rumors of a Van Halen reunion without Eddie, if we get more excited when Rob Zombie announces a new album or movie, and our muted Halloween celebrations during a pandemic.
Songs: Dark Tranquility – “Identical to None” and “The Dark Unbroken,” Soulburn – “From Archaeon to Oblivion”
