Diecast Interviews and Features
Below are our features and interviews with Diecast.
As Boston-based metalcore veterans Diecast embarked on their current tour (sponsored by none other than Metal Underground), I was dispatched to cover the inaugural gig at Mill Street Brews in Southbridge, Massachusetts (report here). Following the band's set, I sat down with guitarist Jon Kita, frontman Paul Stoddard, and bassist Eddie Barton for a casual chat.

No topic was off-limits, and we even explored an intriguing new moshing concept involving a piñata, which I expect to see in a Metal Underground Pit Stories column any day now.
