Additionally, Gausten is invited to select the episode’s playlist, which includes tracks by Black Sabbath, Aerosmith, Effectionhate, Pigface, Napalm Death, Non-Fiction, The Plasmatics, Prong, Celtic Frost and Benediction.

The complete program can be heard at http://radiofreesatan.com/metal_invaders.html.

Gausten’s 192-page book “From Satan to Sabbath” includes the complete text of his out-of-print book “The SABBATH Interviews,” selections from his books “Prong: The Early Years” and “Pandemonium: Inside Killing Joke,” cover art by Shannon Gardner-Gausten and previously unpublished, full-length interviews with past/present members of Aerosmith, Plasmatics, Celtic Frost, Opeth, Thin Lizzy, Bolt Thrower, Benediction, Hades, Watchtower and Napalm Death.

The paperback edition of “From Satan to Sabbath” is available at http://www.lulu.com/content/8355113. A special hardcover edition, limited to 50 copies, is available at http://www.lulu.com/content/8355260. Gausten's official website is at www.gaustenbooks.com.

Both Gausten and Bellavance will be featured on the upcoming debut album by Effectionhate, an electronic music project created by artist and multi-instrumentalist Shannon Gardner-Gausten in 2007. Experimental in nature, Effectionhate's music ranges from techno to classical to atonal industrial noise, with the project's evolving list of contributors ensuring that no two compositions are alike. The album will also include an appearance by drummer Martin Atkins (Pigface, Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Public Image Limited).

A demo recording of the Effectionhate track “Emptifull” is featured in the new “Susperia” edition of the Terror Transmission horror film podcast, available at www.terrortransmission.com. Additional Effectionhate music samples are available at http://www.myspace.com/effectionhate.

Sonny Bellavance’s acclaimed classical guitar album, The Devil’s Guitar, is available at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/bellavance. Audio samples of the album are available at http://www.myspace.com/thedevilsguitar.
