E13 Gideon Ricardo

Below you can find the full video podcast episode from our YouTube channel. To listen on all other platforms, click here.

On this episode I am joined by Gideon Ricardo, the Dutch mastermind composer behind Woods Of Wonders The Metal Opera. Gideon is a lovely guy and very humble, especially considering the huge scale of the project he’s working with. The debut album ‘Lost’ has just been released and features over 30 guests! From underground stars in the making to metal legends – the album boasts a truly remarkable cast. I get to sit down with Gideon and discuss how him and his fiance Charlaine put this whole thing together – as well as their goals for supporting artists and making family friendly metal that children can enjoy. It was a pleasure to chat with Gideon and also get to help with releasing his debut outing ‘Lost’ via Love Anarchy Records. I hope that you enjoy listening to both to the album and this podcast ❤️
