A conversation about COVID- 19, the soundtrack to his youth, if he is a craft beer enthusiast, the Montreal music scene, his first shows, his time with Neuraxis, the dawn of Akurion, joining Necrotic Mutation & his hangover cure. Throughout this interview Rob was drinking Microbrasserie Dieu Du Ciel's "Moralité". It is a classic, juicy IPA here in Montreal. It was hopped with Simcoe, Citra et Centennial & it clocks in with a 6.9% ABV. & Matt was drinking MaBrasserie's "Mandrill". This crushable Farmhouse/Saison Brett was fruity, wild & tropical. It clocked in at a smooth 6.2 % ABV. This is the second "Spotlight on Redefining Darkness Records" episode of four! Check out Akurion's monster of a track "Leave Them Scars" featuring guest performances by Luc Lemay, Lord Worm & Jean-Marie Leblanc taken from their album "Come Forth To Me" which is played in the intro of this episode.

Devastation On The Nation 2020 featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant has been postponed due to the effects of the COVID- 19 Virus. But Daniel DeFonce, the Vox&Hops Alumni behind Metal Festival Tours & Continental Touring has already managed to secure tour dates for Devastation on the Nation 2021 featuring the exact same lineup. Devastation on the Nation 2021 with run from February 11th - March 14th 2021. Mad love & respect to Daniel DeFonce for pulling this together so quickly...I am impressed! The impact of the COVID- 19 Virus on the entertainment industry is monstrous. Some of your favourite artists may be struggling to get by right now & desperately need your help. The best way to do that is by buying their music, merchandise & other goods. I have created a list of all of the Vox&Hops Almuni's Merchandise Pages for you to peruse so that you can support your favourite artists. Trust me they need it... It is also essential to support our local Craft Beer Breweries now. If you are going to be drinking craft beer during your time in Social Isolation make sure that it is a Local Craft Beer. It would be a shame if we lost some breweries to COVID- 19...Craft Beer or nothing!
