Brian Posehn

 Brian Posehn 1.jpg

Brian Posehn is a lifelong heavy metal fan in addition to being a popular actor, comedian and comic book writer. It would only make sense then; for Brian to team up with metal musician pals like Scott Ian (Anthrax) Satchel (Steel Panther) Joey Vera (Armored Saint) and John Tempesta (White Zombie, ex-Testament) to record two songs for the 2006 Relapse Records release "Brian Posehn – Live In: Nerd Rage" album. A disc that showcases the stand up routine of heavy metal’s resident funnyman alongside his first musical output. The result is hilarious to say the least, with the single "Metal By Numbers" gawking at "Nu-Metal" and "Emo" posers. The single even spawned a very silly music video.

Now riding a generous wave of notoriety from his work on the hit Comedy Central program "The Sarah Silverman Show" Brian is gearing up to record a follow up record. I caught up with Brian recently on a particularly drizzly afternoon at the second day of this years "Fun Fun Fun Fest" in Austin, Texas where he was performing his stand up routine on an eclectic  bill that also featured headliner Danzig and crossover legends D.R.I. amongst indie rock, alternative and hip hop acts. Brian filled me in on how he originally got into metal music, his plan’s for his metal band "Posehn" the upcoming season of "The Sarah Silverman Show" and his recently released zombie comic "The Last Christmas" You can expect quite a bit from Brian next year including a new album, touring and more laughs. Be sure to catch him live when he comes to town!

From Hell’s Heart – Giving Up The Ghost (April 2009)

April 4th, 2009

From Hell’s Heart: April 2009

"Giving Up The Ghost"

From Hells Heart...

In most cases, no one likes to run down another’s hard work. Whether or not someone “likes” what a musician has laid down is entirely subjective and varies from person to person, but a critic’s job is to defragment and spout with some intelligence just why an artist’s bread and butter is, well, dried up and moldy.

Which brings us to the topic du jour: “Giving Up The Ghost.” Once a band has passed its’ “best before” date, like a carton of rancid milk or that take-out food that got pushed to the back of the fridge and forgotten, it should be disposed of to avoid exposing innocents to its foul appearance and acrid reek. Sadly, most musicians’ devote their lives to their art and once the commercial well has dried up, they are left with no means of supporting themselves once the days of being mobbed by fans and dating strippers has passed. Others fail to realize—or admit—their own popularity decline and carry on as if the glory days still exist.

Such is the subject of the resurrected “From Hell’s Heart” column here at

Dan Lilker – Nuclear Assault / Brutal Truth

October 23rd, 2008


It would be more than unexpected if some serious metalhead asked “who is Dan Lilker”, cos the man has been involved in the metal scene and in the catacombs of underground metal for several decades. Above all, Nuclear Assault are still remembered as pioneers of the NY thrash metal scene, with several killer albums from the 80’s. Dan has also carved a reputation as the long time bass player and founder of the extreme grind core act Brutal Truth which terrorized the underground extreme metal genre in the 90’s until they went on a long hiatus. After being on a hold for years Brutal Truth has returned to bring their extreme music to extreme people again. The band visited Helsinki some time ago and we got the great opportunity to chat with Dan about his various bands, but above all about Brutal Truth, Nuclear Assault and even going back to the very early days of Anthrax.

Dan Spitz of ANTHRAX

May 4th, 2006




It’s been over a decade since Dan Spitz last visited Finland with Anthrax. The band had just released their highly praised album SOUND OF WHITE NOISE and they were doing their first tour with new singer John Bush. Less than two years later, Dan decided to quit, not only Anthrax, but the whole music business. He started to study new occupation in Switzerland. After years of of hard work he became a master clockmaker and he started his own successful business in the USA. In the spring of 2005, the classic line-up of Anthrax (Scott Ian, Charlie Benante, Frank Bello, Joey Belladonna and Dan) announced that they will be doing a reunion and since then the band have been constantly touring across the globe.

Anthrax did two sold out shows in Finland last April and right before the Tampere show Dan sat down with us and we talked about the reunion, religion, early days, departures, watch making, and other interesting things. Read no further unless you’re prepared for the truth as told to us by Anthrax’s lead guitarist Dan Spitz. The purpose of this interview is to set the record straight, to answer questions that many fans, ourselves included, have been wondering about. By no means is anything in this interview to be taken out of context or used to stir up bullshit.

If on the other hand you would, for once, like to read some straight and honest answers, or just learn some interesting and fun facts about the history of the legendary thrash pioneers that are Anthrax, then read on. You can’t make up stuff like this. As a live band, Anthrax, as it exists right now, is a force to be reckoned with. The camaraderie inside the band seems genuine. Our hats are off for the whole band also for their exemplary treatment of their fans.

Judas Priest w/ Anthrax : 10/28/05 Konocti Harbor California

November 8th, 2005

Judas Priest
with Anthrax
Konocti Harbor California 10/28/05

Pics and review by Swissman

I was very excited to see what I call the “oldschool” lineups of Anthrax and Priest. Due to the rain we left around 11:30 AM because yahoo maps told us that it would take at least 2 1/2 hours to drive up through the wine country and the windy hills. We got there after almost 3 1/2 hours due to the fact that there was traffic and we took a wrong turn, almost like straight out of the movie Deliverance.

Dynamo Open Air 2005

May 30th, 2005


By: Swissman

I decided to scrap my plans to go to Wacken this year to witness the final metal show at the historic Effenaar Club in Eindhoven Holland and the Dynamo Open Air in Hellendoorn and boy am I glad I did. The Effenaar was destroyed the week after the show to make room for a new building.
