Simply put, Shawn Hoskins and Adrian Monahan are metalheads. The long-haired duo has been playing “groove metal with a splash of thrash” on and off together for at least five years, but have loved the heavy music genre since they were kids.
Both said it's the ferocious, powerful feelings metal music evokes that drew them in and led them to become metal musicians.
“I like all kinds of music, as long as its metal,” Hoskins said.
Hoskins, better known as Metalman or Shawn Roxx, also hosts a metal radio show every Saturday night on KBMF. He said although he’s only been with KBMF a few years, he’s been blasting metal music over public radio waves in Montana and Washington for about 35 years.
