Scott Allie on the Metal Crypt!

Posted in Robin Balzer, The Metal Crypt with tags , , , , , , , on June 17, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

Next Wednesday, I’m thrilled to announce we’ll have Dark Horse Comics’ Scott Allie on the Metal Crypt!

He’s scheduled to be on at 5pm EST, and of course, we’ll have Mark McLaughlin on at 3:30pm EST so don’t miss that.

And since Robin did so well on the Funky Werepig last Sunday night, I’ll try letting her on to say a few words to Mr. Allie.  She’s been anxious to thank him for all he’s done for a long time now.

It should be a blast!



Robin Balzer on the Funky Werepig show!

My good friend and owner of Skullvines Press, S.D. Hintz, was on the Blogtalkradio show, The Funky Werepig last night.  Of course, I had to call in and give him a hard time.  The conversation carried into the after party segment of the show where everyone kicks back.  I had the show playing through the stereo system and Robin was enjoying it so much, she wanted to come on and say, “Hi!”

So, if anyone would like to finally hear what she sounds like, take a listen to the “SD Hintz” podcast HERE!  You can also download it (sometimes I have trouble getting sound from the site’s players).

While the show is well worth hearing from start to finish, Robin comes in at about the 92 minute mark.  You can hold your mouse on the progress bar of the player and bump it to around 90 minutes and catch it.  And so you know who else she’s talking to besides S.D., there’s Greg Hall (the crazy host) from Choate Road, Louise Bohmer, and R. Scott McCoy, chief editor of Necrotic Tissue, which is just going to its first print edition (get a subscription!).

**Now, if you just want the part with Robin, S.D. just put it up on the Skullvines podcast page HERE.

As a side note, shortly on the Metal Crypt, we have Scott Allie of Dark Horse Comics scheduled for June 24th at 5pm EST.  Providing Robin is up to it, I intend to bring Robin on to chat with him a bit.  She wants to thank him for all he’s done.

Woohoo!  Next Wednesday on the Metal Crypt, we’ll have Pamela Moore as a guest.  Fans know her as “Sister Mary.”  Also on March 25th, we’ll have their guitarist, Michael Wilton on.  I intend to ask him about the absinthe he’s been promoting.  Shit, I need some more absinthe.  I finished up my last bottle a month ago.

The Metal Crypt has a new site!

I’ve created a new WordPress site for The Metal Crypt which can be found HERE.

It’s still being worked on, but most of it is there.  You’ll be able to watch videos of past interviews, keep an eye on updates, and check the guest schedule.  There’s also a “Play” button where you can tune in to Hard Rock Radio Live directly from your computer using programs like Winamp or Windows Media Player.

Also, due to growing popularity, the show has been expanded to 3 hours!  It will now air live every Wednesday from 3-6pm EST.  This allows for more craziness, more metal, and more diverse guests!  For instance, we might have an author on and then a musician on one show.  And we’re getting quiet the lineup of guests built up, like members of Queensryche.

So keep checking it often for any changes, and if you’re a fan, I appreciate linking to it and spreading the word.  Thanks!


And so you don’t have to keep hunting this post down for a link, it’s been added under “The Metal Crypt” to the right.

Jeff Mariotte on Metal Crypt!

Posted in The Metal Crypt with tags , , , , , , , on January 13, 2009 by Jerrod Balzer

Tune in Wednesday, the 14th from 4-6pm EST for more music and mayhem.  This week’s guest is Jeff Mariotte writer of comics and books such as Angel, CSI, Charmed, Star Trek, Spider-Man, Superman, 30 Days of Night… the list goes on and on.  We’ll be discussing his latest release, Zombie Cop, as well upcoming projects.  He’s a great guy and very talented, so you don’t miss it!

You can go to the station’s website, Hard Rock Radio Live, or go to the direct stream to listen on your preferred media player.

Robin Balzer on Metal Crypt?

Providing she’s feeling okay at the time, we’ll have Robin on the Metal Crypt tomorrow!

It’s been a year since her appearance in the Dark Horse comic, Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 #10, so we thought it would be fun to have her on.  After all, no one has ever heard her voice and it’s very sweet.

So Wednesday the 7th, tune in either directly or by going to the website of Hard Rock Radio Live and listen from 4-6pm EST.  We’ll probably bring her on at around 5pm.

For those not familiar with the show, it’s uncensored, Badslayer and I get pretty wild, so it may not be safe for work.  We’ll take it somewhat easy on Robin, though, but as sweet as she is, she’s always been able to hang with the guys, heheh.

And for those of you who prefer trade paperbacks of your comics, this issue can be found here.
