Interviews 2009

LORD OF THE GRAVE

Jan/06/2010

One of the musical highlights in 2009 was 'Raunacht', the debut album from Switzerland's LORD OF THE GRAVE. The concept is simple: heavy-weight riffs are piled up to form massive sonic sculptures, almost as gigantic as the Alps in their home country...

UNORTHODOX

Oct/25/2009

This interview was like a heavy birth. Perhaps the most problematic interview in the history of Cosmic Lava...

SUN GODS IN EXILE

Oct/13/2009

By now, it should be clear that Small Stone Records is a record label of high quality. Each band has its individual character and when they discover a new band, you can be sure that it's a good one...

MEMORY DRIVEN

Sep/27/2009

Anyone who reads Cosmic Lava carefully, has certainly noticed that I'm a huge fan of Dennis Cornelius' work. Due to this reason I asked him a couple of questions a few months ago...

THE SETTING SON

Sep/10/2009

THE SETTING SON is a relatively new band from Denmark, devoting themselves to a 1960's garage/pop sound enriched with psychedelic undertones. For this reason it was a logical conclusion that Bad Afro Records became interested in their sound...

SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT

Aug/13/2009

I had been looking forward to do an interview with musician/music journalist Christian Peters for a long time. The reasons for this were simple...

SACRILEGE

May/31/2009

First of all, for me this interview is like a dream come true, but I've to travel back in time to explain my enthusiasm. It was in the year 1983 when I was a young urban rebel with spikey hair, combat boots, wearing a leather jacket with rivets and a bullet belt...

STONE AXE

May/04/2009

I'm pretty sure 2009 will be a good year for STONE AXE from Port Orchard, Washington. In February 2009 the band's first album has been released thru Roadburn Records, after a debut 7" in 2008, and if you dig the heavy blues rock from the early 70's as much as I do than please take note here...

DEATH MASK

Mar/14/2009

There are always bands in music history that fade into obscurity, because they never had the chance to release anything or there was no real support during their brief existence. Not each of those bands deserve attention after twenty years, but DEATH MASK should find a place in the heart of people, who like their metal doomy and extremely heavy...

ARGUS

Mar/08/2009

ARGUS is a genuinely gifted band from Pennsylvania, who released their first demo back in 2007. Sometimes it's just amazing to hear how outstanding a band can be, although they only released a demo, but ARGUS fit smoothly into that category...
