Interviews 2004

SETALIGHT RECORDS

Oct/15/2004

For me, Berlin is closely associated with a pulsating and vital music scene. And I don't talk about brainless fashion shit like the fucked-up "love parade" or  crap like that...

AIDAN BAKER

Oct/12/2004

I discovered Canadian multi-instrumentalist Aidan Baker by chance. He's working on a lot of different projects and he's also writing a lot of interesting poetry...

ORQUESTA DEL DESIERTO

Oct/12/2004

If the summer is your favourite season, and you want to discover a band that perfectely embodies all its different emotions from bittersweet to euphoric then ORQUESTA DEL DESIERTO is your band (and mine, too). Although the line-up features members from the Earthlings, Hermano (Steve Dandy Brown) or Goatsnake (Pete Stahl) f...

YOB

Oct/11/2004

For my taste there's a lack of originality in the doom genre in current times. I miss bands who add something new to the old patterns, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel and its named YOB! They are no real newcomers, because they have released two excellent full-lengths in the past but with the new album "The Illusion Of Motion" they have extended their style...

FISTULA

Oct/11/2004

In the so-called sludge genre FISTULA are the unbeaten heavy-weight champions. They have released a lot of songs on different albums, compilations etc...

ANTICLIMAX

Sep/29/2004

Does anyone remember bands like Ripcord or Electro Hippies? Well, those powerful gangs were part of the upcoming British hardcore invasion in the mid-80's, and have influenced a lot of other bands with their whirlwind-like sonic assault. One of the most famous groups were the legendary Extreme Noise Terror, who created a sound somewhere between Disorder and Napalm Death (in the early days)...

SASQUATCH

Sep/12/2004

We all know the stories about the mysterious creature, named Bigfoot or Sasquatch (Indian language). Only a few people have seen this giant animal with their own two eyes, but the reports have one thing in common...

SOFA KING KILLER

Sep/10/2004

Well, I dig SOFA KING KILLER since their split with Leemilk, but the new album "Midnight Magic" is such a convincing release, that I sometimes can't believe what I hear. This group doesn't care about any stylistic limitations and for those who filed this band next to all Sludge bands, should think about it...

INTERNAL VOID

Sep/10/2004

INTERNAL VOID are maybe one of the most criminal underrated bands since their debut release "Standing On The Sun", back in 1992 on the legendary Hellhound Records. Now 14 years later one of Maryland's finest bands comes with theit third album "Matricide" and it' s once again a virtous heavy soulful slab, far away from any trends...

ALIX

Sep/08/2004

Italy's ALIX are my personal hot discovery in 2004. When I saw their energetic live show this year as support of The Hidden Hand, I was totally overwhelmed by their heavy groove-laden psyched out rock...
