Interview with T of Dragged Into Sunlight [2013, re-upload]

0EJF31R2Y0GIn 2013, I was already far in with this blog and writing for two music websites, but I’d only just started doing interviews with bands. One of the websites I wrote for was MetalRecusants, which sadly came to a natural end and so the website was laid to rest and all the reviews, interviews, etc. disappeared. I was pretty sad about that.

I dug out an old hard-drive and it hit me that this interview with Dragged Into Sunlight was still on it, and here it is. I really enjoyed this one and T is an extremely insightful person, and I was fortunate to talk to him again after DIS’s collaboration with Gnaw Their Tongues, “N.V.”

Just wanted to share it. Continue reading

Top 30 Albums of 2015: 30-16

2015, overall, has been a year of slight disappointment when it came to music.

So here it is, the first half of my end-of-year-list for releases. A lot of these ended up being EPs for some reason.  Continue reading

Intensive Square – “ANYTHING THAT MOVES” Review

I know that my links to reviews on other websites don’t seem to get viewed much, but this time I urge anyone who sees this to check out my review of Wales’ own Intensive Square’s debut album “Anything That Moves” here. This album has been a long time coming and fully deserves your attention and ears when it comes out on the 29th June, via Black Bow Records. The thing is an absolute monster in the tech metal realm. Plus, you can’t go wrong with some Zorn-esque sax too.
