A conversation with Black Inhale

The Honest Brutality crew is proud to bring you, all the way from Austria, the hard hitting heavy metal powerhouse Black Inhale. Their new album “A Doctrine Of Vultures” is one of the best new metal albums we’ve heard. Visceral, real, and dripping with power, this album needs to be in every self respecting metal heads playlist. All four members join us for a conversation about the album, their history, the metal scene in Austria, beer, laughter and much more. Prost!

A conversation with Bryon “Stiky-Tips” Corral

We’ve been asked repeatedly to cover the “local” scene here in Northern California more in depth. It doesn’t get much better than this. Bryon “Stiky-Tips” Corral is an everyday working man / metal head that has started a festival in Northern California known as the Redwood Metalfest. His  production company in collaboration with partner Jacob King “Mendo Metal Heads”, is responsible for bringing together the rock and metal community in a way that was previously unknown to the area. A great guest, a true philanthropist to the metal movement, and an all around cool guy, Bryon sits down and tells us his story. Please join us for a very cool conversation, and go show Bryon some love Honest Brutality style!
