Episode 7 of season 6 aired on Rebel Rock Radio at 7 pm on 16 Feb 2023. We eased in with The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, and a track called ‘Last To Die’.  From there we heard Damageplan, the band that arguably cost Dimebag Darrell his life.  Red Dragon Cartel gave us a track called ‘Big Mouth’ featuring Maria Brink on vocals.  From there we were cruising, ACDC, Bush, and stuff like that.

TSORR is working with Devographic and getting all the brand-new SA releases as they come out, or in our case about 12 hours before.  I don’t like to lose music time on interviews but I am enjoying these short sort of elevator speech interviews, I think they add value in terms of bringing the artist to you.  I spoke to Sheldon Horvatic the guy behind Oceans of Angels who explains his new track called ‘Carnival’ off his brand new EP titled The Gift.  Later on, when the music got a bit heavier we chatted to Jessy Switchblade, the frontman from SA Metal giants Deadline.  The new track ‘Monuments’ is awesome and shows that old-school metal is alive and well.

Mid-show we picked up the pace with Danko Jones and Airbourne with ‘Suicide Woman’ and ‘Ready to Rock’ respectively.  I discovered a Mark Haze album I did not know had been released, the album is called Signs of Life and we checked out ‘Step Off’.  Mark is one of the best vocalists in the world let alone SA.  This week’s Immortal track was ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’, The Stones nailed it, big chill all the way.

This week on the Ultimate Challenge we looked at 1991.  I didn’t spread it out as I did last week.  I played tracks off the four albums one after the other.  It depends on what was going on in your life but for me, 1991 was very special.  We checked out Skid Row with ‘Monkey Business’, Ozzy Osbourne with ‘Hellraiser’, Metallica with ‘Enter Sandman’, and Guns ‘n’ Roses with ‘You Could Be Mine’.  And the winner was………. Music, no one could decide they are all awesome.   The rules say you have to choose, it’s gun to the head stuff so then it would be G ‘N’ R.  The new In Flames and Winery Dogs sound great, we took a listen.  the ending was very chilled, this is because i had a bit of a personal reflection and it marks a very specific point in time, I left it to Bob Dyland and Leonard Cohen to explain.  Thanks for listening.
