Interviews 2008

SPACE PROBE TAURUS

Dec/16/2008

Formed back in 1992 in Sweden, SPACE PROBE TAURUS belong to the very few bands who have learned their MC5 / Stooges lesson well. They carry the heritage of both bands with pride and added their own personality to that timeless sound...

DEGE LEGG

Oct/08/2008

Dege Legg is a real busy man. Born in southern Louisiana and influenced by the blues, strange psychedelic experiences and other weird things he developed his own unique profile in the underground...

SHAME CLUB

Jul/08/2008

'Come On' is a real appropriate titel for the third album from the US-band SHAME CLUB, because this is the kind of music that drive away all dismal thoughts and that sort of kicks serious ass. SHAME CLUB injected a fresh transfusion into the body of old mother Rock 'n' Roll, than gave her a Southern Blues enema and now this lady is feeling like a young hot chick...

SLUGPUNCHER

Jul/08/2008

Grief was a band that left footprints in the history of extreme heavy music like a dinosaur in muddy ground. I wil always miss this band, but on the other hand it's good to see when former members haven't lost their interest in making powerful superheavy music...

THE GLASSPACK

Jun/28/2008

"Kick ass rock 'n' roll" - meanwhile this description has been overused for boring and mediocre bands, who have nothing more to offer than average rock songs without any hooklines. However there are bands like Kentucky's THE GLASSPACK, who really write good songs and unleash a bulk of energy especially on stage as they demonstrated it again at this years Roadburn Festival...

FIVE HORSE JOHNSON

Jun/05/2008

Since the band's foundation in 1995 FIVE HORSE JOHNSON rejoice my heart with their powerful blues-ridden heavy rock. They have internalized the spirit of blues giants like John Lee Hooker or Howlin' Wolf, and merged it together with classic rock and the blues appreciation of Captain Beefheart or ZZ Top...

CHOWDER

May/28/2008

Again, it's about time for Cosmic Lava to take a look at Maryland. The reason therefor is the instrumental band CHOWDER and their first release which is downright convincing...

A THOUSAND KNIVES OF FIRE

May/25/2008

New Jersey was always a good ground for heavy rock. Solace, Solarized, or The Atomic Bitchwax are just a few bands from there...

THE BROUGHT LOW

May/20/2008

Cosmic Lava caught up with Ben and got the latest on the band's news with an interview between Ben and Gideon Smith. I thank Gid so much for this interview, because it was really necessary to present this powerful group...

BRAIN POLICE

Apr/13/2008

At the end of 2007 when I received my general promo package from Small Stone Records, one of the included CD's was the new album from BRAIN POLICE. I wasn't aware of their existence and so 'Beyond The Wasteland' was my first meeting with this Icelandic band...
