For over two decades Mike Hill has been a road warrior traversing the challenging terrain of extreme music, renegade journalism and end times documentarianism.
Hill is known for fronting the metal band Tombs, who have released records on Metal Blade and Relapse Records, with 2011's Path of Totality getting the tap for Decibel Magazine's Record of the Year. The band has toured extensively and have performed at notable festivals such as Roadburn, Maryland Death Fest, Roskilde Festival, Ieper Fest and most recently Ozzfest Meets Knotfest. His written work has been published in Noisey, Revolver, Bandcamp Daily and Decibel.
Hill is also a DJ at Gimme Radio, a streaming metal channel curated by notable artists in the genre, including Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe and Dillinger Escape Plan's Ben Weinman.
The Everything Went Black Podcast is a reflection of Mike Hill’s own psyche addressing the creative, intellectual and physical aspects of the human experience. For those out there that choose to live apart from flock, who embrace individuality, Everything Went Black should be a regular part of your world. The complexity of modern man is oft time under-served and under-estimated. As Miyamoto Musashi wrote “to know the way broadly, is to see it in all things”. Why not embrace all aspects of life and celebrate the Savage Life of a self-realized individual?
Below is a list of the constantly evolving shows that you will find here:
- Everything Went Black features guests ranging from metal and hardcore musicians to writers, martial artists and other free-thinkers.
