Agnostic Front

Agnostic Front

For over three decades Agnostic Front have been the kings of hardcore and amongst the originators of the legendary New aYork hardcore scene. Through the years they have always remained true to their punk-hardcore roots, heritage and their trademarks blend of punk and metal. With an extensive catalogue of 11 albums all bursting with aggression and raw power they are unstoppable. Their latest studio album ‘The American Dream Died’ (Nuclear Blast, 2016) is the proof that they are going full force and they are stronger than ever. We had a chat with legendary guitarist and founding member Vinnie…

11 Paranoias

11 Paranoias

With the mirage of Multidimensional Paranoid Vision, 11PARANOIAS hypnotise listeners into their hullabaloo of highs. Intense mind whirls, blistering euphoria and spectral wonderment are induced by their darkened psychedelia, opening realms of aural, visual and further sensory paranoia!

Adam Richardson: 11PARANOIAS is CHAOS - a state of being that flies in the face of decent and proper physics and nature… We formed on 11/11/11 but the name actually refers to existing in multiple dimensions – 11 to be exact – simultaneously, which to some minds is impossible… At the time of our creation I was…

Doyle

Doyle

Doyle is the new horror punk/metal band project of legendary ex-Misfits Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein which include former member Alex Story of their old band Gorgeous Frankenstein.

Renowned for his short straight forward answers, here is a little chat with Doyle himself just before hitting the stage in London about the new album, tour experiences, including an interest to another possible reunion gig with the Misfits.

Doyle: For this album I wrote the music and arrangements, Alex Story did the lyrics and we…

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…

Oni

Oni

2016 was a breakout year for progressive metal band ONI, who proved their lasting prowess with the release of their debut album Ironshore, toured with heavy metal greats such as Max & Iggor Cavalera and Children Of Bodom, tore up the stage at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God - and last but not least - introduced the heavy metal world to the wonders of ‘Xylosynth’. After capping the year with Top 10 "Album of the Year" nods from the likes of Metal Injection, Metal Insider and others.

Jake Oni tells Billboard, "’The Only Cure’ is one of the stronger songs on the…

Exodus

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…
