Apostate Viaticum

Apostate Viaticum

Hi Alex. Thanks for the space here. We’re releasing our debut album “Before the Gates of Gomorrah” on Invictus Productions. It’s got 6 tracks and an intro straight up, no bullshit Death Metal. It’s all been fairly easy and relaxed really. Despite being our first release, we’ve all been around a long time in other bands and we knew one another quite a while before getting involved in this. Likewise with the recording studio (Trackmix) and engineer (Michael Richards) we used. We’d been there previously several times and Michael knows us and knows how we like to work and sound. We’ve a good…

Soilwork

Soilwork

It could only be Soilwork.  Here to discuss their latest album, the melancholic ‘The Ride Majestic’, Björn Ingemar and David Andersson speak about life’s journeys and how we deal with them; sidestepping the ‘existential nonsense’. David Andersson: We’re waiting for Bjorn – he’s off prettying himself. We’re what is called in Sweden ‘Looks men’ – it’s all based on looks, not music. Six beautiful handsome guys get together posing on stage.

Björn Ingemar: We’re so lucky to have you looking at us!

BS: Well I think the first thing he did for us was the cover for Stabbing the Drama. We did a…

Exodus

Exodus are one of the pioneer of the Bay Area thrash metal scene, they have been around since the beginning and helped shaped and create thrash metal. With a catalogue of 10 studio albums and many line-up changes they still managed to remain a constant in the metal world. They are now still going at full speed with the return of legendary frontman Steve ‘Zetro’ Souza which re-joined the band permanently in 2014 and Exodus loyal, Gary Holt, which splits his time between Exodus and Slayer. The band was back with another pure thrash metal album ‘Blood in Blood, Blood Out’ (2014, Nuclear Blast)…

Atlas Pain

Atlas Pain

By Samuele Faulisi

Hi everyone and thank you so much for the space first of all! We've just closed the production process of our debut album ‘What The Oak Left’ that will be released via Scarlet Records on March 10th. It's something that we worked on for months and months, even before the release of our first EP ‘Behind The Front Page’. We wanted to take our time to prepare everything as we really aimed so when we first started the composing process at the beginning of 2016 we focused on every joint between the "metal" part and the symphonic one. We've always wanted to find a perfect melting…

Yugal

Yugal is a french metal quintet band rocking since 2010. After a couple of E.P.'s incensed by the specialized french press (Metallian, Rock Hard), Yugal decided to have a break with stages for a year to spend time on their first album composition. Despite a lineup turn on summer 2016, “Chaos and Harmony” was released on the end of the same year. The album allowed the band to go on tour, with gigs at Nantes Metal Fest, Bloodwase Metal Fantasy Fest, Tomahawk Festival, Plougarock Festival, sharing the stage with Loudblast, Black Bomb A, Karma Zero, Banane Metalik, and many more.  Yugal is still…

The Answer

The Answer

The Answer is an Irish band that is in high demand, their sound and talent are being noticed worldwide and they also have been touring and playing support to AC/DC. Their latest album ‘Solas’ (2016, Napalm Records) has a complete different sound, it moves away from the previous ones and it takes a whole new direction. ‘Solas’ steps away from rock and gets closer to pop, but at the same time it explores and goes deeper into the band’s  Irish roots, incorporating their culture and heritage in this new record. We caught up with frontman CN during their tour with John Corabi’s Dead Daisies, to…
