GMP takes a chaser between our last series on Cannibal Corpse and our next series on GWAR! Tom Jordan of 20 Watt Tombstone joins the pod to discuss the new album “The Chosen Few” – truly great guitar, Mitch Ostrowski and other famous Mitches we like, a cool story about meeting Joe Bonamassa, and more!
Let’s be straight up: Final Gasp’sdebut Mourning Moon (Relapsev Records) is a great album, but going into this we need to be clear in what we expect from it. The album cover, and marketing hype around this album makes you think it’s the second coming of Type O Negative. This is not the case. They draw inspiration from one of my favorite eras of punk rock…the mid eighties. This is when bands like T.S.O.L. and Die Kruzen took a darker turn in a more shadowy direction.
