A Band of Orcs Interviews and Features

Below are our features and interviews with A Band of Orcs.


A Band Of Orcs Laments The Loss Of Peter Steele

Although normally predisposed towards eating or enslaving human beings, the green skinned monstrosities in A Band of Orcs can still occasionally mourn the passing of members of the pink and squishy race. Giving an orctastic salute to the gothic metal giant Peter Steele, the band recorded a death metal version of "Green Man," which appeared on the recently released "All For None, None For All: A Tribute To Peter Steele."

Their first album "WarChiefs of the Apocalypse" was unleashed onto the human world in the summer of 2007 under the name A Band Of Orcs. I managed to get an interview out of the orcs, in between their attempts to eat me and add my skull to their pile. More...
