It's not every day that you get the chance to sit down and candidly talk about music, movies and culture with a man literally halfway around the world. Fresh off the release of "Decadence," vocalist/guitarist Fufu of Nothnegal took some time out to talk with me about all of those things.
Working in the sweltering clubs of Miami and the surrounding area, Shroud Eater has been an undeniable force in underground, DIY metal since the release of their newest creation, "ThunderNoise." Taking time out of the hectic schedule of daily life and promoting the band, the three members of Shroud Eater, Jeannie Saiz, Janette Valentine and Felipe Torres sat down to chew on some of our questions, as we talk about life, music and doing it on your own.
It takes a uniquely creative mind to be the burgeoning force behind the free-wheeling, exploratory and atmospheric riffs that power the band Cradle of Filth. Paul Allender is that mind and is that man. Recently, I got a chance to fire some questions at Paul concerning his band, his music and his art.
Sometimes in the annals of music history, there is a band with a long history of doing things their own way and defying all manner of convention. One of the bands in heavy metal that exemplifies that very ideal is Darkthrone, fresh off the release of their latest effort, "Circle the Wagons." I managed to steal a few minutes of Fenriz's time, and wanted to see what gives him the drive to go on. Read below to see his thoughts on his own band, metal as a genre, and naturally, cinema of all types, including horror. Enjoy!
