The Esoteric's ten-year rise to household name-status among the acultured in Lawrence has been marked by hard work and some hard luck-the band's house went up in flames nearly two years ago). "Subverter," the new release from The Esoteric, hits stores October 17. On a tight deadline from Prosthetic Records, Lawrence's premier metal band worked from the gut, got help from some friends and recorded their most rockin' album to date. Eloquent ambassadors Stevie Cruz (vocals) and Eric Graves (guitar) stop by our smoldering podcast studio to talk about musical egalitarianism, water in the basement and Arnold Schwarzenegger's neck.
