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

My TEMPLES FESTIVAL 2014 Experience

This is the second (and final) attempt at reviewing the weekend because the original draft reached 1,250 words by the time I covered Electric Wizard – the headliner of the first night – and I know no-one loves music enough to read an essay.

My “Damnation Festival 2012″ Experience

Sorry to disappoint, but you won’t find the review of Damnation 2012 here… but you will find it over on Eyesore Merch‘s far nicer blog by simply clicking HERE. Have a look, comment your thoughts/highlights and share it!

Anyway, it was my first Damnation Festival and was a great experience, I can definitely see myself going again.

If You’re Going To… Damnation Festival 2012

Being an extreme metal fan in the UK, one of the most notable disappointments about it is the lack of British festivals that provide line-ups of bands that push their genres to the extreme. Yeah, we have Bloodstock, but is it really extreme? There’s Supersonic too, but line-ups often require a certain taste (especially in noise, electronic or rock/metal). However, Damnation is a sort of balance between the two, never shying away from putting on extreme bands, bands that won’t sell out a stadium but will definitely have people talking about their performances for years. In a sense, Damnation Festival is the UK’s version of the USA’s Maryland Death Fest and France’s Hellfest, on a smaller scale. Continue reading
