Interviews 2011

THALAMUS

Oct/17/2011

I was so happy to do this interview, as Sweden's THALAMUS released two of my favorite albums of the past few years. Their music is trademarked with talented and accentuated songwriting, fresh hooklines, heavy guitars and extremly charismatic vocals...

DxBxSx

Oct/09/2011

DxBxSx (better known as Drive By Shooting) has been cranking out releases over the last ten years, but their new album 'Zugriff' is the best thing I've heard 'em do yet. But how to describe DxBxSx to the uninitiated? Well, first off you need to imagine some heavy punk-driven rock 'n' roll oozing from amplifiers that are dangerously close to implosion...

BABY WOODROSE

Sep/27/2011

Lorenzo Woodrose is firmly established in the world of 1960's influenced psychedelic/garage rock. His playing oozes sensitivity and he has an intuitive sense of musicianship which shines through the music like a beacon...

BLOOD FARMERS

Aug/07/2011

It is good to know that the BLOOD FARMERS finally get the credit that they deserve. About 12 years ago, it seemed as if New York's finest doom metal band was in danger of dying out completely...

INCREDIBLE HOG

Jul/16/2011

Of all the less-known heavy bands from the early 1970's, INCREDIBLE HOG remains one of my favourite groups. Their only full-length record 'Volume 1' is a powerful masterpiece of raw blues-driven heavy rock...

THE FLYING EYES

Jun/12/2011

Everything is going smoothly for THE FLYING EYES. Not long ago, the band was on a successful tour in Europe for the second time where they also played a lot of new songs from their recent album 'Done So Wrong'...

FIREBIRD

May/27/2011

I always liked FIREBIRD, but I immediately fell in love with their new album 'Double Diamond'. At the risk of being boring I think this is their best record so far - or, more accurately, it's my favourite record in FIREBIRD's history...

UNDER THE SUN

May/16/2011

Drummer Mike Smail is no stranger in doom metal history; he was one of the co-founders of Dream Death, which is regarded as pathbreaking in the field of death/doom metal. Later, Penance evolved from Dream Death, which also played a crucial role in the history of heavy music...

STONE AXE

Mar/01/2011

Now, the wait is over: STONE AXE will finally be on tour in Europe for the first time in April 2011. Reason enough for me to do another interview with guitarist Tony Reed...

MIRROR OF DECEPTION

Feb/25/2011

MIRROR OF DECEPTION is one of Europe's longest running Doom Metal bands. They celebrated their 20th anniversary in early December 2010 and released another great album that once again refined and expanded their very own sound...
