Interview with Colin Busse of Abhor - March 13, 2015


Rick interviews Colin Busse of Rochester, NY based Abhor. 

Abhor is a progressive death metal band from Rochester, NY. The group started in the winter of 2011, hell bent on bringing djent to their hometown. After a series of lineup changes, a group of musicians solidified. Abhor features layered harmonies and leads with crushing riffage and a tight rhythm section focused on "djently" outlining the patterns and meters that keep their songs moving.

The members have a wide range of influences, including the almighty Meshuggah, Vildhjarta, After The Burial, Animals as Leaders, and Periphery. Abhor's music is progressive, aggressive, destructive, experimental, and epic.

Abhor has recently finished recording a 10 track EP which is now available to download for free at Listeners will find a broad spectrum of tones, patterns, rhythms, and harmonies.


March 13, 2015 - Friday the 13th...

Randy and Joe
It was Friday the 13th, so the show once again opened with Joe's favorite Alice Cooper track.
Really...don't let the guy fool ya, he's been in denial about it for years. He LOVES that freakin' song...
Rick and I took a moment to talk about the recent show at the Montage in Rochester featuring former Marilyn Manson and current Rob Zombie guitarist John 5. He's been out recently on his first ever solo tour, and completely blew us away. There is so much more to this guy's talent than you can hear on either Manson's or Zombie's albums. I highly recommend checking out his solo material, he is truly a gifted musician.
Jeffie was on hand once again, being as annoying as ever. He seemed to have it in his head that the character of Baymax in the animated film "Big Hero 6" was somehow modeled after me. Personally, I don't see the resemblance...
Things got pretty tasteless after Joe referred to Jeffie as a porch dick. Don't ask me what the hell that's actually supposed to mean, but Jeffie seemed to think it was some kind of detective. So, he took it upon himself to investigate Azkath's porch. Joe had asked him if he'd found any poop, which led to...things that just shouldn't be discussed on the air...ewwwww...
Of course, things didn't improve once we got into a discussion involving a black metal band called Anal Vomit. I'm still a bit miffed at Josh for thinking I was the one talking about eating my own anal vomit when it was clearly Jeffie who made that remark.
Dammit Josh!
Rick took a few moments to take part in an interview with Colin Busse of Rochester, NY's Abhor, who recently released a new album, and we've been featuring tracks from it pretty heavily over the past few weeks. Highly recommended stuff!
Joe and I took some time to discuss our interview with Carmine and Vinny Appice, who as of Thursday the 12th had brought their Drum Wars show to little ol' Waterloo, NY. I'm happy to say that the interview went very well, and I can't wait for everybody to hear it when it airs on next week's show! As for the show itself, all I can say is it was incredible to get to see two of my idols, both certifiable legendary musicians in their own right, in such an intimate setting. Trust doesn't get much more intimate than Lizards Tailgator Lounge!
Things got really weird as the night wore on. I mean, that's pretty much the norm on the Metallic Onslaught. Weird is pretty much our thing, above and beyond the music. But...
Let's put it this way. Jeffie freaked us out a bit. He started tampering with aspects of the show that nobody should have influence over. 
Case in point, he made us talk backward! EVERY ONE OF US!!!! I don't know how he did it, but he did, and it was CREEEEPY! He even claimed he'd make the whole show run backward if we weren't nice to him!
And then he started making Joe's voice speed up! Absolutely no natural explanation for any of it, Joe just started sounding like he should be accompanied by David Seville, as well as Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
Yeah, this is freakin' me out just thinking about it. Who knows what else Jeffie is capable of?
