We got Steve Tucker of the legendary Morbid Angel to join us on this episode of Toilet Radio! Hot damn! Me and the boys introduce the show by discussing the history of Morbid Angel, their sound, and the bands they’ve influenced. After that, Steve drops by to tell us all about the new album, recording with Erik Rutan, and the rumor mill that surrounded their latest tour. Also, we discuss national news media, missionaries, death metal past and present, clean singing in metal, and we find out Steve’s current favorite metal band. Folks, it’s a good one.

Music featured on this show:
Morbid Angel – “Prayer of Hatred” from Formulas Fatal to the Flesh
Morbid Angel – “Piles of Little Arms” from Kingdoms Disdained (Preorder)

CORRECTION: I misspoke on the show. I said “Skillet” when I meant “Skrape”. I am a dumbass and I apologize. The poster for this crazy lineup is below:

    Wow you mixed up your Nu Metal SKs Joe, for shame.

  • Howard Dean

    Wait, for real?! Steve Tucker? FUCKIN BYAAAAAHHH. Can’t wait to listen.

  • Mosh Hoff

    For the longest time I thought his name was Steve Trucker.

    Okay this is me being annoying and pointing out that Pete was in Terrorizer BEFORE Morbid Angel, but they didn’t actually record anything until after MA started.

    The more you know!

  • Morbid Angel, I feel like I was supposed to check these guys out… Hmmmm.

    Picking up guitar definitely widened my music tastes. I’m a huge Mark Knopfler nerd, whereas before I was one of those ‘metul 4 lyfe’ intolerable assholes who probably should’ve been shoved in lockers in school.

    • Sailing…to PhiladelphBREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEa

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Knopfler is God. Money for Nothing and Telegraph Road are a testament to that.

          Dire Straits>>>>>

    • PostBlackenedWhaleGaze

      The only reasons I started listening to metal was I picked up a guitar. It was the funnest genre to play. And still is. But sometimes I like to mess around with Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin licks, or slap a lush chorus on and play some darkwave.

    • Spoetnik

      Yeah lets start a discussion about Dire Straits on a Morbid Angel new story… i was thinking it but you beat me to it. 🙁

      • nbm02ss

        I figured it was topical, considering the comment Brendocide made about picking up guitar and metal guitar players.

        • Spoetnik

          Just pointing out how it’s a funny situation. LOL

  • RJA

    I don’t dislike Domination, I enjoy it sometimes – but Covenant is THE Morbid Angel record.

    • Howard Dean

      For me Altars of Madness and Covenant are head and shoulders above the rest. I love how Altars is so raw and aggressive. Tracks like “Chapel of Ghouls” and “Maze of Torment” are some of the band’s best.

      • RJA

        1. Covenant
        2. Altars
        3. Gateways
        4. Blessed
        5. Formulas
        6. Domination
        Sorry Joe.

        • Where’s Heretic and Illud? Also your ranking is all wrong, go 2 hell

          • RJA

            I guess I would slide them in just ahead of Domination!
            Just kidding buddy, I like to believe they stopped at G.

            The new one sounds promising though!

  • Lord of Bork

    Slight correction: Eddie Van Halen is the Eddie Van Halen of metal.

    But Trey is dope too

    • Mosh Hoff

      I was debating internally yesterday on whether VH are metal or not. I still don’t know the answer, because Hot for Teacher, for example, is totally metal. But then, like, Panama and Jamie’s Cryin’.

  • Mosh Hoff

    The radio interference in the guitar amp thing (which I’ve experienced in my own shitty HS band) happens due to bad electromagnetic shileding, and it can happen in the actual amp, but it’s usually due to badly shielded (re: cheap) cables/guitar pickups.

    • Mosh Hoff

      A pickup is basically a bunch of wrapped wire, and any wire is essentially an antenna. In short, the longer the antenna, the more gain, so a poorly shielded wound pickup (or guitar cable, which is also just wires) will, ahem, pick up all sorts of shit, especially with a transmitter nearby.

    Bruh let me stop you right there. Have you ever heard of a little band called idk…Rings of Saturn?

    • Dubby Fresh

      I have seven nieces and nephews. The oldest is 12, and he likes all the same stuff I did when I was his age. It’s pretty cool because he’ll text me to talk to me about Zelda and engineering.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Rings Of Saturn may be good but they’re not the best.

    Kingdoms Disdained 2017 Album of the Year

    • can we stream it anywhere?

  • Howard Dean

    Wow, probably my favorite radio episode I’ve heard so far. Steve Tucker seems like a cool dude. I liked his takes on television and subgenres (and I’m a dude who uses subgenres to describe things, but his take was pretty much spot on, haha). Plus he kinda sounds like Lawrence from Office Space, so that’s awesome:

  • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

    Is it just me or Trey rarely does interviews nowadays? I swear all the interviews since 2011 have been with either Vincent or Tucker

    • could it possibly be that he’s embarrassed about a particular topic?

      • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

        Definitely, and its not his weeaboo tastes

  • Janitor Jim Duggan

    Yay, Steve Tucker! I’ll have to give the new MA a listen.

  • stellar show

  • Max

    I can at least explain the AM thing over the FM thing: AM is just a stronger long-distance wave. That’s why when your amp picks up interference, it’s more likely to be a talk-radio station.

    I, for one, was NEVER trolling when I wrote the article saying I liked IDI.

    • Spoetnik

      Yup and AM will hug the earth a lot better and travel far.
