HELION PRIME – Interview with Jason Ashcraft (Interview)

As AFM Records‘ very own Helion Prime have the imminent release of their sophomore album, Terror of the Cybernetic Monster (check out the Decibel Geek review here), we were lucky enough to pin down band leader/founding member/guitarist Jason Ashcraft to quiz him on the album, line-up changes and influences.

Radio Sucks Radio Show v32 – Ep312

We’re back this week with more killer rock tracks and talk with Radio Sucks Radio Show v32! If you are new to the podcast, this particular format is easy to explain. Radio sucks and has for a long time. The limited amount of artists coupled with the limited amount of songs by those artists makes radio a frustrating experience. Additionally, the ignorance of new material by classic artists makes no sense at all. Do we…
