OK, Worm-fiends, you've probably heard the name RANDY KASTNER before if you're a regular reader of this site. The man is a true wizard at putting together worthy underground metal shows in Southern Wisconsin. I have reviewed a lot of them here, including the recent NYDM SPRING BASH 2014...a show which almost never came to be! I thought it would be cool to speak to one of the hard-working dudes who bust their hump to put on the great shows we all enjoy. What's the secret to success in this tough business? What were some of Randy's favorite bands to work with? What is it about "pay to play" promoters he detests? Find about all this...and also Randy's inspiring battle against serious illness...right HERE...but don't tell the old grump I sent you!

It's time for another extra large helping of the Torture Chamber, packed with nutritious underground goodies of all shapes and sizes. Dig in...
