We Are Featured In This Week’s VC Reporter

The nice folks at VC Reporter did a killer write up on us and founder Max ‘ManJewky’ Wallis in their January 8th edition.  If you are local to Ventura County, California you can probably find a copy pretty easily. If not, see below for the digital version.


“Metal music rose to prominence in the 1980s only to be eclipsed by Nirvana and the Seattle sound . . . or so the legend goes. The music fell out of the spotlight for years, with bands like Metallica representing close to the entirety of a culture to fans who didn’t know any better. But metal never died; it retreated underground where it spawned an infinite variety of subgenres, fusing influences from all across the musical spectrum into its core sound. Subgenres such as metalcore and deathcore developed from a strong hardcore punk influence to substantial success. Post-metal cast aside a verse-chorus-verse song format in favor of Black Sabbath-like riffing and cinematic atmosphere. All of these sounds had their moments before slowly going back underground. What has emerged since is a return to the core sound, a new wave of thrash and traditional metal. Internet radio station Kosher Metal wants to welcome you to the revolution.”

NEW YEAR’S METALUTION – January 10th, 2015 @ The Tavern in Ventura

NYM copy

We are pleased to announce another Kosher Metal hosted event!

Our next event will be called New Year’s Metalution and will be held on January 10th, 2015 at The Tavern in Ventura, California. We loved that place so much, we just had to come back and bring a handful of kick ass Metal bands with us.

Bands scheduled to perform are: Ruthless, Heretic, Six Pack Of Doom, and Raiju


For those who are unfamiliar with The Tavern, it’s an old Victorian style house converted into a bar / nightclub in Downtown Ventura, CA. Supposedly, it’s haunted (if you believe in that sort of thing) – you can read up on the legend behind that here.

We look forward to seeing some familiar faces, and a bunch of new ones. You can RSVP to the Facebook event here.

RECAP: Night Of The Living Thrash

(photo credit: Chris Cromelin)

This past Saturday, we hosted an event called Night Of The Living Thrash at The Tavern in Ventura, California. We were hoping to get someone out to review the show but we couldn’t make it happen due to scheduling conflicts, so… we’re doing it ourselves.

The evening started off with a thrashy kick to the balls when Social Overload began their set at 9:30pm – they have a good reputation amongst the locals and everyone we had talked to who were aware of them had nothing but good things to say. However, this was our first time catching these guys live and they pretty much set the tone for the rest of the night. If you haven’t checked these guys out and their shows are accessible for you…we highly recommend going. You can visit their website heavymetalhammer.com for show info, etc.

After giving away our first round of CD prize packs (courtesy of Nuclear Blast America) it was time for M.A.S. to tear it up. These guys got the pit going and provided an onslaught of thrashy riffs and vocals. They closed their set with a cover of Body Count’s “Cop Killer” and it was also around this time that we noticed some confused faces on some people who were walking through the venue to get to the outside area. Apparently there was an “SB ’04 Reunion” party in the back, we had no clue this was going to be occurring but it definitely provided for some laughs. There were sights of preppies and hoochies throughout the night with looks of disgust, most of them had to walk through a mosh pit to get outside where their party was, many of them plugging their ears. It was great! I mean, Metal is supposed to piss some people off…right?

After another round of giveaways, Brain Dead began to tear everyone a new third eye. With the twin-duo Adam ‘n Rez on guitar and bass along with blistering vocals by frontman Joey Dalo, these guys really brought the pit to life. Brain Dead has been hailed as one of the best local Thrash bands currently on the Los Angeles scene by established promoters, and we see nothing but great things for these guys in the future. Great songs and great stage presence. Hell, their debut album Indoctrinator was produced by former Slayer producer Bill Metoyer (you can get that here, if you’d like).

The final band of the night was Sangre and these Inland Empire heavy hitters brought that Metal hammer down in a way that could only result in one thing…a giant pit! Well, giant for the size of the venue anyway.  We couldn’t believe how insane both their set and the crowd were. We’ve already gotten requests to bring Sangre back, and we definitely will!

The best part about the whole night is that people moshed non-violently, if that makes any sense. When someone went down, they were helped back up….the way it’s supposed to be. No fights and no injuries that we are aware of. We have to give it up to the crowd, it was the epitome of how a crowd should behave at a Metal show. So, if you were there then pat yourself on the back.

The next event we have planned is on January 10th, 2015 at The Tavern once again and it will be called New Year’s Metalution. The night will feature Raiju, Six Pack Of Doom, Heretic, and Ruthless. We hope to see some familiar faces.

However, on a brighter note we are pleased to announce a NEW DJ on KM! His name is MARTIN DeBOURGE and his ‘THROWBACK METAL SHOW’ will debut on Kosher Metal this coming Monday, Sept. 15th at 8pm Pacific time. Join the chat during the show if you can and show him some KM love!

Welcome to the family, Martin!


Changes At The Blog

As you may have noticed, there hasn’t been much Metal news being posted here. The reason for this is because we are a small group of people and sometimes life creates situations that prevent us from doing everything we want. After all, we are primarily a radio station and that’s where our focus should be.

With that said, we won’t be posting general Metal news on here as much. Instead, we will focus more on station news, editorial pieces, and random funny things that we find. If you want to stay on top of Metal news, we recommend Blabbermouth.

We thank you for your continued support and for choosing Kosher Metal as your preferred online Metal radio destination.

Horns up!
