This week’s way-out session explores a schizophrenic collision of the best-trained echelons of jazz and metal, where swing and shred interact in a high-speed heavy freak scene. Flip your wig with sax-soaked madness from pioneers Painkiller, Flying Luttenbachers, Ephel Death, and Yakuza, plus modern masters Shining (NO), Ihsahn, Convulsif, and Leftyfish. Get real gone—and know your Roots!
