INTERVIEW: Pär Sundström (SABATON)

May 31, 2019 // 0 Comments

On the new album "The Great War" being based on World War 1… Pär: The timing was absolutely right, coming up to 100 years since the ending of WW1, so this was for a natural thing, time to do it. On whether every band member is interested in World War history… Pär: Everybody is not as interested I would say, but me and Joekim are the two main ones that are interested. Maybe we were not that much from the beginning but it is something that grows over time now that we’ve been more exposed to interesting stories and reading more and more. For sure from the start we had some interest but I’ve always been a fan [read on]

INTERVIEW: Eric Bischoff [Wrestling Industry Entrepreneur]

Levi: I’m sure you will. First off, I’ll just ask you a few questions about the tour that’s coming up in Australia, that’s in June. It’s called "83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff", and it’s a spoken word tour. Can you tell people what they can kind of expect if they’re going to come to a show? Eric Bischoff: If I had to sum it up, it would be one part crazy comedy, and the other part, really interactive and informational. The wrestling industry, by its very nature, is over the top, bizarre characters, unique personalities. The stories that we all have to share, those of us that have been in the [read on]

STEVE HUGHES: “SJWs are a cancer” [Exclusive Interview]

April 19, 2019 // 0 Comments

To fully understand the context of this interview I recommend listening to the audio linked below. Here a few selected highlights from my chat with legendary Australian comedian Steve Hughes Why Steve Hughes decided to become a stand-up comedian Steve: I was in bands for years and years from the 80’s up until the 2000’s. I was always funny, I used comedy to distract myself and make others laugh, I remember when we were really young in the 80’s, I remember one day listening to "Hell Awaits" by Slayer and "Bonded By Blood" by Exodus. And we sat around listening to those albums and then we listened to Bill [read on]

INTERVIEW Anders Fridén (IN FLAMES)

April 17, 2019 // 0 Comments

The new album "I, The mask"Anders Friden: It was recorded between February and May in LA last year. Me and Bjorn went over and we worked with Howard Benson and his team once again and you know, we didn’t have much with us, on us when we came to LA. We said we’re gonna start from scratch and see where it takes us. And we never have huge plans, honestly when it comes to our music…it’s coz we don’t write on the roads, we never really have and therefore I think all the Albums sound a little bit different from each other, even though it still sounds like In Flames. The only thing we talked about for this [read on]

MAX CAVALERA Talks “Beaneath The Remains” & “Arise”

March 22, 2019 // 0 Comments

On the writing process for "Beneath The Remains": Max: "It was a crazy time, man. At that time in Brazil, we only used to play five shows a year, so it was very slow and we were, like, really hungry — we wanted to do more. We knew we could do more. We knew we could be touring. It was a bit of frustration building inside the band, but we knew if we kept working, things will eventually pick up. I got a contract. I finally got a ticket to New York and dropped off a bunch of records in New York and one [label] was Roadrunner and Monte [Conner] called us back and gave us a contract. We were on cloud nine. Recording for the first [read on]

There aren’t many bigger names in metal than SLAYER and Australia is extremely lucky they get to experience one last time and to farewell this legendary band as they hit Download Festival and sideshows in Brisbane and Adelaide with fellow Big Four brothers ANTHRAX and the Polish Hammer of BEHEMOTH. What can be said about SLAYER that already hasn’t been said? So far into their career and the final album ‘Repentless’ scored their highest ever Australian chart entry at #3 on the ARIA Chart. An incredible achievement this far into their career! Don’t miss this last chance to witness part of what has been an incredible history! In 1981 [read on]

INTERVIEW: Anna Murphy (CELLAR DARLING)

Can you tell us a bit about the new album, The Spell? I only just got a copy today, so I just finished listening to it about 10 minutes ago. Can you tell us about the recording process?Anna: Well, The Spell is a concept album. I’m not sure if you could realize that just from listening? It’s a concept album, so we actually wrote the music according to a lyrical guideline. The track list was also already there before writing the music. And that’s something we’ve never done before, so that was a really special process. As far as the recording process goes, a lot of the songs were recorded, and actually written, in the [read on]
