Doc talks with God Forbid’s ex-manager Dave “The Rev” Ciancio about how his artist management career got started with The Syndicate, what attracted him to want to work with God Forbid, the exciting east coast metal and hardcore scene of the late 90s and early 00s, why he ended up quitting managing God Forbid and eventually leaving artist management altogether, and gives some insight into his career path after leaving the music industry.
This episode features the God Forbid song “Nothing” from the 2001 album Determination.
Doc speaks with Broken Hope founder and guitarist, Jeremy Wagner, about being the “last man standing” in a band with a 20 year history, how their long hiatus came about, what the 90s death metal scene was like, Jeremy’s fiction writing career, and how the band’s approach has changed in the modern era of social media.
This episode features the song “Blast Frozen” by Broken Hope from their new album Mutilated and Assimilated.

I can remember it as clear as day. I’m 12 years old, in the movie theater watching the greatest action hero of all time at the peak of his powers in a self-referential, almost too meta for it’s own good commentary on the monstrosity that was ’80s and ’90s cartoonish action films. The iconic star was Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the subpar, but subsequently under-appreciated film was Last Action Hero. Ripe with anticipation, a kid in a theater (me) watched another kid in a theater, watching a movie within a movie. The rabbit hole runs deep.
In the film within a film, Jack Slater, the title sequence literally explodes on-screen to the roaring riffs of the song “Angry Again” by one of my all-time favorite metal bands, Megadeth. This song wasn’t a previously popularized hit from a famous, big-selling Megadeth album. It was only available on the Last Action Hero soundtrack (and later on the Hidden Treasures EP) which also featured incredible tracks by AC/DC, 2 songs from Alice In Chains, and a superior-to-it’s-original rendition of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” accompanied by ’90s era composer du jour Michael Kamen and orchestra.
Doc speaks with ex-Chimaira bassist Jim LaMarca about their forthcoming reunion show, political observation in Cleveland, how he came to becoming a professional barber, why he ultimately left Chimaira in 2010, ponders the mistakes made by the band, and talk NBA and Cleveland Cavaliers.
This episode features the song “Wither” by Impending Lies.
