This week finds me close to home, hanging around the dingy back alleys of Chicago, where I encounter my old friend JON NECROMANCER, once of USURPER but now proudly the voice of BONES! This band does things the Chi-town way, meaning they are as crude and brutal as a baseball bat upside the head delivered by Scarface Al!. Bones has got a great new album out called "Sons of Sleaze" (you knew we had to be all over that one) so now is the time to get sleazy! This wide-ranging conversations covers the origin of the Bones classic "647 Bastards", memories of Jerry Lee Lewis and Ginger Lynn and one of the best assessments ever of the legacy of the mighty Usurper. Dive into the sewer and dredge up those BONES right HERE!

This week's assortment of Torture Chamber reviews is truly dark and twisted, ranging from classic black metal to weird ambient darkness to punishing doom/sludge!

BATTLE BEAST                                                   "Battle Beast"

DODSFERD                                                        "The Parasitic Survival of the Human Race"
