Rigs of Dad Prodcast

Jan 11, 2022

Brian Cook was the first ever guest on this podcast, and he is back with a vengeance...  Some of that is true.  But regardless of his thirst for revenge, Brian has had an insane two years since we last spoke.  Since then he has released a solo album which you should listen to here, These Arms Are Snakes had a reunion, Russian Circles recorded a new album, they toured with Korn and System of a Down, they had all their gear stolen, and so much more...

This is not the traditional Rigs of Dad long-form interview either... This is a glimpse into all the tangents and derailed conversations that always happen with every guest during the Lightning Crashes Lightning Round.  There was simply too much stuff to cut out, so I let a lot of that role for the release.  If you want to hear the whole thing, head over to the Rigs of Dad Patreon Page where you can hear that and all other extended interviews and beyond.

Be sure to listen to listen to any and all of Brian's music wherever you get your tunes. 

Russian Circles can be heard here.

Sumac can be heard here.

And you'll just have to listen to the episode to find out where you can hear These Arms and Botch next!!

Head over to Age of Ruin's Instagram and dive into some of the best thrash I have ever heard.  Their new album is coming soon.  It's produced by Mike Schleibaum of Darkest Hour and is just a relentless and refreshing metal cleanse.
