Metal Matters


31: Ghoul in the Mirror Blaine Cook of The Accused AD

Ep. 31

I had the chance to hang out with Blaine Cook of The Accused AD when they rolled through Brooklyn prior to their appearance at this year’s Maryland Death Fest. He was kind enough to set aside some time pre-show down in the subterranean green room at Saint Vitus.

Blaine is one of the architects of “Crossover Thrash,” having been the vocalist on the seminal EP “Martha Splatterhead” by The Accused back in 1985. Their combination of metal and hardcore punk falling in line with a legion of likeminded troublemakers that I talked about way back on the “Crossover Episode” of this very own podcast!

Check out the new Accused AD record “The Ghoul in the Mirror” or better yet, see them out on tour!

Intro:             “A Terrible Tail”
