March 22, 2019 // 0 Comments

On the writing process for "Beneath The Remains": Max: "It was a crazy time, man.

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.

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]

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]

When I first heard of the game I thought it might be a bit [read on]
