Interview with TEMTRIS

Temtris 2018
Hailing from Australia, TEMTRIS recently released their 5th full-length album, "Rapture". They have been part of the Australia metal scene for nearly two decades, and during this whole time they never deviated from their goal which is no other than to deliver metal in its purest form. Fronted by Genevieve Rodda, they surely know how to write music that matters while avoiding the pitfalls and industry gimmicks that wants female-fronted bands to operate in a cookie-cutter fashion. Genevieve was kind enough to share a few words with us about the band, their latest album and the Australian metal scene in general. Enjoy...

Interview with MOB RULZ

MOB RULZ from Virginia, USA, are a great example of a talented band that captured lots of amazing elements in their music, but despite their first-class material and their musicianship, they never managed to take it to the next level. You see, in this business - yes, I mean the music business -, talent is not the only thing that matters. Anyway... Musically MOB RULZ delivered a really exciting mixture of melodic hard rock and classic heavy metal, with some pomp rock touches. You can hear all that in their "Primal Urges" private CD release from 1989. Vaggelis "VXN" Fotakis tracked Robert Johnstone (guitars) down, talked about MOB RULZ and his personal saga around music on a great interview done the old fashioned, "printed zine" way. The way we love!

Interview with SABOTER

Saboter (2018)
Sinister, Almighty and Dark. If that's the way you like your Heavy Metal then buckle up and keep reading. With the release of their second full-length album, SABOTER made a statement and proved the world they're here to stay. We had the pleasure to chat with them about "Architects of Evil", their vision for the band and their views on the Heavy Metal scene today. Onward...

Interview with FAMYNE

Famyne
Having started their musical path heavily influenced by the fathers of Doom Metal, the quintet from the UK seems to have found its identity and has forged its own distinguishing sound. Expanding their perception of doom metal, FAMYNE enriched their music with lots of 70's rock, psychedelic/prog rock, and ambient elements and delivered a blow to the world with their debut album, simply called "Famyne". Between tours and gigs we had the chance to have a word with the band and get to learn about their story and overall plans. Check it out.

Interview with CARAVAGGIO

A new band featuring former ADRAMELCH members is always a good reason for an in-depth discussion. Especially in the case of CARAVAGGIO in which we discovered some interesting collaborations that come from the past of the obscure Italian metal scene. The past, the present, the future, the legacy of ADRAMELCH, the Italian Steel, the beauty of Prog Rock and the musical traditions of the Mediterranean. Everything combined beautifully together under the name of an Italian painter. Are you confused? Start reading...

Interview with ETERNITY’S END

When it comes to interviews it's always a pleasure to talk with people who live for Metal. Whether it's "traditional" or "extreme" metal, these folks will do everything to suck the enjoyment out of every riff and every note they play or listen to. Among these I'll definitely consider mr. Christian Münzner, guitar virtuoso and mastermind behind ETERNITY'S END "Unyielding" (among others), who was kind enough to provide us a very interesting insight about ETERNITY'S END latest work, future plans and the music industry in general. Onward!

Interview with ROYAL ORPHAN

Royal Orphan (2018)
I was quite excited to check out the debut release by ROYAL ORPHAN. These newcomers managed to satisfy my thirst for some high class, inspired Power/Progressive Metal. Did I say newcomers? Well ok, the ROYAL ORPHAN project is new, but the two people behind it, have already spent quite a few years in music. And there are lots of things to be shared about this glorious past and of course the most glorious present and future under the ROYAL ORPHAN moniker. We tracked down vocalist, guitarist and bassist Brendan Kelly and we had a very interesting conversation about one of the most amazing Power/Prog Metal projects that New York has to offer today: ROYAL ORPHAN.

Interview with ARRAYAN PATH

Arrayan Path (2018)
Epic/power metal powerhouse ARRAYAN PATH are back with "Αρχέγονοι", their 7th full-length album and the third one in three years. We had the chance to chat with Nicholas Leptos, vocalist/songwriter/mainman of the band, and learn a thing or two about the new album and his views on the band's roots and the future. Enjoy.

Interview with DESOLATION ANGELS

Desolation Angels (2018)
Formed in the early 80's out of love for classic chorus-driven Heavy Rock music, they shockwaved the NWOBHM underground scene and embarked on a music exploration journey that led them across the Atlantic. However, doing business in the music world takes more than blood, sweat and tears, something the band had to learn the hard way. With mr. Paul Taylor (ELIXIR) behind the mic and a couple of new faces on the drums and bass, DESOLATION ANGELS are still alive and kicking. "King" marked the band's 3rd album and mr. Rob Brancher surely doesn't hold back when it comes to speak his mind...

Interview with MUSTANG

Mustang, India (2018)
MUSTANG is a heavy/speed metal band from Kolkata, India, fuelled and forged by the sacred steel of the 80’s. Having released a couple of singles 'till now, the band is working on putting together their first official release. Keep reading to find out what these hard-working metalheads are all about...

Interview With SERPENT LORD

Serpent Lord (2018)
Stumbling into bands that have to offer an authentic take on music doesn't happen everyday. SERPENT LORD prefer to refer to their music as "heavy metal", but there are things happening under the hood that surpass the boundaries of the term. The band was kind (or sinister?) enough to shed some light upon the dark essence of their recently released debut "Towards The Damned". Are you ready to be damned?

Interview with ACHELOUS

Achelous 2018 (no logo)
Formed in 2011 as an extreme one-man project, over the years they have evolved into a classic heavy metal band with epic elements. After numerous line-up changes and live shows, the band recently released their first full-length album called “Macedon”. Chris Kappas (vocals) had some interesting things to say about the debut and the future plans of the band,..

Interview with CAULDRON

Cauldron (2018)
Formed about a decade ago, CAULDRON have been on track and consistently delivering albums ever since. They breath for Heavy Metal, something you can easily tell by their looks, sound and overall aesthetics. After a devastating accident threw them off the wagon, the band got back on track and recently delivered their fifth album, "New Gods". Ian Chains (guitar) was kind enough to spend some of his time answering our questions. Check it out...

Interview with MANACLE

Manacle (2018)
MANACLE is one of these bands that are up to the challenge no matter the cost. "Forged" in Canada, homeland of iconic ANVIL and more recent CAULDRON, the band has recently released it first full-length album. Mr. Inti (guitars) was kind enough to share a bit of his time with us and shed some light on the past, present and future of the band. Ejoy...

Interview with BATTLEROAR

Battleroar in 2018
If there’s one band out there that has every right to the Greek Epic Metal throne, that’s definitely BATTLEROAR. We had the chance to chat with band's mastermind and guitarist Kostas Tzortzis about "Codex Epicus", as well as a couple of other interesting topics. Hope you enjoy it...

Interview with TOLEDO STEEL

Toledo Steel
TOLEDO STEEL is a band whose name is inspired by Spanish steel, but its music is being forged in England. The quarter carries the flame of the "old" alongside the banner of the "new". Having just released their first full-length release, Rich Rutter (vocals) was kind enough to chime in and shed some light about the band's past, present and future.

Interview with SEVEN SISTERS

Seven Sisters (2018)
SEVEN SISTERS have managed to mash legends of Arthurian Britain, Greek mythology, NWOBHM and US power/prog influences into a solid alloy that's hard to ignore. Their latest album was a good excuse to chat with them, so sit back and enjoy what you're about to read.

Interview with AGAINST EVIL

Against Evil (India) in 2018
AGAINST EVIL come from a place where Heavy Metal is not the most popular choice. In a country where Bollywood and mainstream media dominate the music industry, there are a few that take things in their own hands and deliver their music by their own means.

Interview with HORIZON’S END

Speaking with HORIZON'S END mastermind - Sakis Bandis (keyboards) is a beautiful adventure, like each and every listen to each and every of their songs. There were really a lot of things to be discussed, as this is the very first interview that took place after the band's reunion. There is new music, there is this sudden (or not so sudden?) comeback, there is an album that was recorded but never released and a whole band that was put on ice many moons ago. Sakis spread some light to all those topics that waited for years to be clarified and to many new ones, as a new journey to the end of an infinite horizon has already started!
