"Filthy", "dirty", and "crusty" is how Chicago's Bones are usually described. The band's style of punky death metal hearkens back to the early years of the genre, when bands formed solely to make a satanic racket and the music could never be described as "overthought".

I spoke to bassist/vocalist Jon Necromancer about the latest Bones album Diseased, the long process of getting it released, and how they ended up on the Indian label Transcending Obscurity. We also spent some time discussing the nature of the Chicago scene, and how it may be different from the other metal scenes in the U.S.

My thanks again to Jon for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
