EPISODE 46 NOW AVAILABLE
Episode 46 is here and this week I have an amazing episode to share with you with my special guests THEO VAN DER LOO and JONATHAN DORR of Brazil's EGO KILL TALENT. This was one of my favorite conversations yet as it flowed talking everything from MMA and the UFC, to Aftershock Festival and playing festivals around the globe, to how the band met and the existing friendships within the band, their SEPULTURA connection, the music business, living in Brazil, DAVE GROHL , and a very special (told for the first time) SYSTEM OF A DOWN story and how the band wrote a song together with JOHN DOLMAYAN and where this happened. All of this and more on Episode 46 of the HardRockCore Podcast.

Rock band Ego Kill Talent — Jonathan Dörr [vocals], Jean Dolabella [drums, guitar], Raphael Miranda [drums, bass], Niper Boaventura [guitar, bass], and Theo Van Der Loo [bass, guitar] — pivoted for most of 2020.
The band was confirmed for a spring tour of South America with Metallica and Greta Van Fleet. Ego Kill Talent were also set to perform at the majority of the Danny Wimmer Presents Festivals in the U.S., to tour with System of a Down in Europe, and to perform at many key European festivals. All told, EKT had booked 35 shows and 21 key festivals across three continents. They are known for switching instruments amongst members while playing and were eager to show off their live prowess to audiences worldwide.
However, due to the pandemic and the subsequent global shutdown, Ego Kill Talent, like so many others, were forced to get creative — revamping and revising tour and album release plans.
Ego Kill Talent elected to split their full-length The Dance Between Extremes, which was originally due out in May of this year, into three EPs due to the pandemic.
The Dance EP landed on June 27. The Dance Between EP dropped on Friday, December 4. [[ADD LINK]] The third, final, and full release The Dance Between Extremes arrives on March 12, 2021.
Follow or subscribe to the band's YouTube Channel for more EKT "Live From the Flatscreen" performances, which were conceived as a way to bring their live show to fans during COVID-19. The band's virtual tour is being promoted in various territories, including the U.S., Germany, Spain, Chile, and Brazil.
