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

Feastem / Oblivionized Live Review (Le Pub, Newport. 13/6/13)

Wales is lucky to be graced with great gigs with most bands settling for Bristol as the most Western point of a UK tour; however (and luckily) this wasn’t the case for the Feastem/Oblivionized UK tour. Feastem, travelling all the way from Finland, and Oblivionized from London set Newport’s loveable Le Pub as their Welsh date and ended up being well worth the travel from South-West Wales, despite travelling/accommodation expenses being 12x the £5 door price!

Dragged Into Sunlight Live Review/Interview

So I had the opportunity to catch Dragged Into Sunlight and Bossk on their UK tour in London, and interview T of DIS before the gig. Check out my review of the live performances and the interview – T had some very interesting things to say.

A New Idea?

So, if anyone else follows Relapse Records (one of my favourite labels in extreme metal) then you’ll know that Relapse have a great deal going on at this moment in time, two “slasher” bundles that consist of: 1) 10 random-picked CDs for $20; or 2) 30 random-picked CDs for $30. A great deal, right? Unfortunately I could only afford the 10 CD deal due to the considerate price of postage and package of the 30 CD bundle, but this gave me an idea…

If the albums I receive are ones I don’t already own, would people want me to review them? Or include the ones I already own? This could also be the start of a new series of reviews where I review old albums, from peoples requests or by my own choice. It doesn’t mean classics either, they could be albums that had a fair amount of praise or even overlooked.

Are these things people would be interested in? Let me know somehow, I’m pretty keen to do it.

EDIT: Due to unfortunate circumstances, I won’t be reviewing the 10 random CDs because I won’t be getting them – turns out I didn’t have enough funds (although I was sure I had enough money) and the bundles aren’t available anymore. Sad face. So yeah, just feel free to suggest old albums to review!

EDIT: I got them, I will be going with the idea. Sorry!

Gnaw Their Tongues – “Eschatological Scatology” Quick Review

Gnaw Their Tongues – Eschatological Scatology
Genre – Black Metal/Noise

Label: Self-released

Gnaw Their Tongues is the nightmarish brainchild of Dutch musician Maurice de Jong, who is known as much for his relentless output of releases per year as he is for his dark and challenging music. If you haven’t come across the project before, Gnaw Their Tongues pushes its listeners to the limits with noise and industrial influenced black metal, sometimes the former two styles fore-fronting  depending on the release.
