ROADSAW

ROADSAW
May/05/2004

After I've seen this year the powerful and energetic gig of ROADSAW, there was no doubt about it, that I've to present this guys here. ROADSAW are a heavy and hard hittin Rock band, of course 70's oriented with enough energy to burn down your homeground. Leadsinger Craig answered my questions with more and less words, so don't take it too serious...

GRAND MAGUS

GRAND MAGUS
Apr/29/2004

GRAND MAGUS were one of the first bands I've done an interview with in 2000. Since then a lot has happened and the band has finally released the first album. So I've met the band this year on their first European tour, together with Orange Goblin and Roadsaw at the Underground in Cologne to talk about all the things that happened since our first interview. But due to technical problems, the tape hasn't recorded our talk...goddamn shit! But no problem for the Cosmic Lava editor, and I've mailed the questions over to Janne. Here's the result so check out what's going on with the Magus...

GIDEON SMITH & THE DIXIE DAMNED

Apr/29/2004

PENANCE

Apr/29/2004

When you talk about the most important heavy doom bands of the last fifteen years you can't leave out PENANCE.

PLUTONIUM ORANGE

Apr/29/2004

If you have read both reviews in this online zine you know a little bit more about the metallic up-tempo Heavy Rock 'n' Roll of PLUTONIUM ORANGE. Their songs are fueled with power, energy and killer hooks, not to forget the brilliant technical skills of this Finnish four-piece...

THE RUBES

Apr/29/2004

THE RUBES are an amazing Ohio-based three piece and their debut "Hokum" on Underdogma Records was one of my favourite albums of 2001. You can listen to a lot of different influences in their heavy rock, that ranges from Gov't Mule to the heaviness of old Sabbath...

EXP

Since a few years there something like a heavy rock explosion in Italy. One of these bands that had been spitting out by this heavy vulcano are E...

MALLEUS

Apr/29/2004

First off, MALLEUS isn't a band or something like this. It's an excellent Italian artistic collective, that's been responsible for a lot of cover-artworks, concert-poster and flyer, website-designs and so on in the last years...

GENEROUS MARIA

Apr/29/2004

GENEROUS MARIA aren't your typical "stonerrock" band. They more on the sleazier side of Rock 'n' Roll and their refreshing blend includes everything from The Doors to The Stooges to The Cult...

Out of the ashes of the now legendary Sleep rises after High On Fire the next band named THE SABIANS formed by the two ex-members Justin and Chris Hakius. But their musical approach is totally different from their old band...
