Episode #101 Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord/Wear Your Wounds)
Welcome to this weeks episode of Heavy Metal History. My guest this week was an old friend/acquaintance from my touring days, Mike McKenzie, guitarist of The Red Chord and currently in Wear Your Wounds. Mike has a ton of other porjects and has stayed immensely busy with music since The Red Chord ended. Some of his projects include Stomach Earth, Nightkin, and Beyond the Sixth Seal. We discuss ALL those projects as well as The Red Chord’s final album “Fed Through the Teeth Machine” celebrating a 10 year anniversary. Mike is such an under rated and talented guitar player that his accoladed and bands he’s played with should speak for themselves. Mike took me through working with his newest project, the Jacob Bannon (Converge) spearheaded “supergroup” Wear Your Wounds, which along with Mike and Jacob includes, Adam McGrath (Cave-In) Sean Martin (Hatebreed) and Chris Maggio (Trap Them) that new album will see release later this year on Deathwish Inc.
