Jimmie Chiverelli was a drummer with the Soo metal band, Gates Of Winter, and is a passionate metal fan, lifelong.

Where Black Sabbath of 1970 is largely considered the starting point of this most beloved genre, Jimmie takes the listener through the story of the Sault metal scene as it fits inside the world view of heavy metal.

The narrative checks off homegrown bands like Amethyst, Woods of Ypres, Pillory, Garden Of Bedlam, Gates Of Winter and several more. The conversation is sprinkled with cuts from these bands, and from the best ever to ply the metal trade, with a nod to the classical music that really started everything.


 “Heavy metal is always going to be there. At its core, it’s all about a primitive connection we all need to keep in our lives.”
