Wall of Sound: Up Against The Wall Episode #83 feat. Marcus Bridge of Northlane is OUT NOW

We’ve had this guy on the show so many times we need to start charging him rent, but when you’re a guy like Marcus Bridge of Northlane, the door is always open for a chat, especially with the band’s masterpiece of a new album Alien coming out which features a whole stack of stories and themes inspired by the tragic upbringing Marcus faced throughout his childhood and youth.

These stories have become the heavy songs that we hear on the new album which, as distressing as they are and sound, prove that no matter how difficult a situation may be that you’re going through, there is always hope at the end of the tunnel and that’s the message Marcus hopes to spread when talking about these events during his co-hosting duties. Podcast host Browny also goes over the new album’s drastic musical direction which sees the band experiment with EDM/Synth and Industrial Metal sounds and influences (which they nailed in the process), proving you can progress as a band but still hold onto the key elements that made you a household name.

We also take a look at Fred Durst‘s new movie The Fanatic which features a creepy as hell John Travolta stalking the shit out of his favourite celebrity, played by Devon Sawa and to be honest, it doesn’t look too bad either.

There’s also plenty of new music from SKYND, Make Way For Man, Wage War, Of Mice & Men, Asking Alexandria and Lacuna Coil, throwbacks from Limp Bizkit, Polaris and Architects + heaps more…
