About The Host


  1. A diehard Heavy Metal enthusiast
  2. Germanic mercenary soldiers from Hesse-Cassel who became superstitiously feared in the American Revolution
  3. Call-sign for the Host of the HESSIAN SESSSON – Metal Mixtape Broadcast

Hesh, Hesher Dude, Hesher McHeshington, El Hesherino

HESSIAN SESSION is created, produced and hosted by Bryan McClain (AKA ‘Hesher’). An avid extreme music fan and live concert afficianado seasoned in the Bay Area metal scene of California. He has attended hundreds of concerts and festivals maybe thousands (who knows, a lot of beer was involved.)

Hesher started down the path of heavy metal addiction at age 6 when he saw KISS play a televised concert after a presidential debate… It was all downhill from there: Questing for music that was heavier, more brutal, faster, darker, more progressive or novel and extreme. This search for increasingly intense “hessian sessions” was an unquinchable thirst to Hesh and the barbarian crew of dirtheads he banded with in CA, TX and around the world.
