Podcast Episode 41 – Lazarus A.D. / Bonded By Blood / Wormhole

During the latest episode of the Mars Attacks Podcast we have three special interviews, two with Jerry Garcia, and one with Jeff Paulick from Lazarus A.D. Interestingly enough I spoke to both Jerry and Jeff while Lazarus A.D. and Bonded By Blood where on tour in Europe. Shortly after speaking to Jerry, I found out that he was out of the band. So the second interview deals with his departure from Bonded By Blood, and his new band Wormhole, which also features former Bonded By Blood lead singer Jose Barrales. During the Jeff Paulick portion of the episode he discusses what it’s like to come out of a place like Kenosha, and make it to a label like Metal Blade, the recording process behind Black Rivers Flow, and an issue that took place in England earlier this year which involved the band.

The episode is full of tracks by Lazarus A.D., Bonded By Blood, and Megadeth!

Mars Attacks Podcast 26 – James J. LaRue

During the latest episode of the Mars Attacks Podcast James J. LaRue comes clean about his departures from White Wizzard, and Holy Grail. He is still currently listed in many places as one of the guitarist in Holy Grail, as a matter of a fact Blake Mount is also listed as their bass player in many places, but neither one is currently in the band. During the interview he disuses this, the grueling process that went into recording Holy Grail’s Crisis In Utopia, his experience in White Wizzard, his future, and many other things. This interview is a must for any young musician thinking to break into the industry, as James give you a detailed and honest account of what it is like to be signed to a prominent metal label (Prosthetic). What it’s like to record with a name prouder (Danny Lohner), and what it’s like to be in two bands that have received some notoriety during the course of the last few years.

During this episode you will hear a bunch of songs by Holy Grail, and White Wizzard
