DEICIDE frontman Glen Benton and legendary tattoo artist Paul Booth — two of the most blasphemous, controversial pillars of the metal scene today — will go head-to-head in a live interview on Sirius Satellite Radio this Friday night (March 26) at 10:00 p.m. EST.
Booth, a world-renowned tattoo master dubbed "The New King of Rock Tattoo" by Rolling Stone magazine, hosts his own weekly show on Sirius, entitled "Beneath the Needle: Tattoo Radio with Paul Booth". Booth also recently leant his artistic talents to DEICIDE for the cover art of their Earache debut, "Scars Of The Crucifix".
"Beneath the Needle: Tattoo Radio with Paul Booth" features phone calls and special appearances by authorities in both the tattoo and metal music demographics. Anyone can participate on the live show, airing Fridays at 10:00 p.m. EST on "Hard Attack" on Sirius Radio. Tattoo and metal stories as well as Tattoo trivia and calls from fans of two arts are aired weekly and on-location broadcast events, like a summer-long presence on Ozzfest 2004, are planned as well.
In other news, DEICIDE are the latest band confirmed for Dynamo Open Air, a one-day Dutch heavy metal festival scheduled to be held Saturday, June 5 in the Goffertpark in Nijmegen, Holland.
