The Skulls of Wrath Show- 23rd Jan 2018

Welcome to The Skulls of Wrath Show.

Podcast #3

Welcome to Skulls of Wrath Podcast #3.
In this podcast- the first from us in 2018, we wrap up 2017 with a run down on all (or certainly most) of the interviews I've done in the past year. (NOTE- The majority of these interviews were conducted under the banner of "HEAVY METAL WANAKA", our old name/brand;

The Skulls of Wrath Podcast #3 featuring interview with Anton Kabanen, guitarist and mastermind behind Finish Power Metal band, Beast In Black.


It's a short news segment this time around, being the 1st show back in 2018 etc, but I touch on developments coming out of Wellington (NZ) band Scorn of Creation

AND I also mention something about a new E.P from Canadian band, The Order of Chaos.

Beast in Black: "Blind and Frozen"

Welcome to 2018.

To kick things off, I made something similar to the so-called Reaction type videos for youtube. There's a little more to it, if you stick around until the end.
