Sunday Slaylist: RIP Pat Egan from Relapse Records

February 24th, 2013

Patlapse Thrash Hits

This week we’re turning over the Sunday Slaylist to something a little different – we want you to go buy something. On Monday 18 February, Pat Egan, Relapses Records’ Director of Retail Sales, died following a the result of complications with a case of pneumonia. To raise money for Pat’s daughter’s college fund, the folks over at Relapse have gone and put together a compilation of 20 of the finest bands ever to have worked with the label – and we think it’d be a damn fine gesture if a few of our readers joined us in buying it, in recognition of the awesome music Pat helped bring us over the years, as well as to help out the family of a fellow metal fan when they need it most.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Definitely releasing the new Unearth record, The March. Playing Russia and Wacken Fest with Iron Maiden was pretty bitchin! Ozzfest with Kingdom of Sorrow was amazing too! Been a great year for me.

What’s the worst thing that happened to you in 2008?
Honestly, I’m thinking that doing dead lifts, backstage before a show in Danville, Virginia and pulling my back out four days before the end of tour was the worst thing that happened. It was four of the longest days of my life, but I pushed through the shows and made it happen.
