In this episode: Louder Than Hell bills itself as “the definitive oral history of metal” and boasts 250 interviews with key players. Editors Jon Wiederhorn and Katherine Turman talk about a project 25 years in the making.
Plus: Actor and longtime musician Creed Bratton plays an ultra-weird employee (also named Creed Bratton) on the NBC’s The Office. Before the show airs its series finale tomorrow night, we ask Creed to weigh in on the grunge band Creed. It gets a little weird, of course.
And: British soul singer Alice Russell joins us to perform songs from her new album To Dust.
Also: a profile of Radiation City, the dream pop quintet whose upcoming album is streaming in our Check Ahead this week.
