Erk FM: Metal Monday 49 – Welcome Back To Sin City, Tensions Arise!
Welcome to episode 49 of Erk FM: Metal Monday which was recorded on location at the Bald Faced Stag in inner western Sydney. This episode features interviews with at least 2 members of each band as well as parts of their sets recorded by me.
Tensions Arise are launching their latest CD, Stand In Defiance. They have recently spent time in the US recording the CD as well as playing a show in New York. Will we see Tensions on Border Security any time soon?
Not Another Sequel Just Another Prequel recently launched their album with Tensions Arise for support and now NASJAP are returning the favour. Vocalist Acey is always ready for a chat – what dramas does Erk cause the band this time?
Fresh from seeing them on Dead of Winter in Brisbane, Frankenbok have been continuing to play regional shows when they aren’t playing in Melbourne. After their set, Erk chatted with guitarist Yeti outside the venue – another classic character with plenty to say. Never a dull moment with these guys!
Two new (to Erk) bands opened the night with The Blackened Beneath (from the Hawkesbury area of outer north-western Sydney) and Thrashed (from the Sutherland Shire, south of Sydney) both playing awesome sets.
