UltimateMetal.com's Jason Jordan recently conducted an interview with EVILE guitarist Ol Drake. The following is an excerpt from the chat:

Q: It’s no secret that acclaimed producer Flemming Rasmussen, who produced METALLICA's finest albums, turned the knobs on Enter The Grave. Did Rasmussen exercise any creative control over your arrangements like Steven Wilson did with OPETH? If not, what was he like as a producer? Did he tell you anything interesting about Metallica that the average metalhead may not know?

A: "Flemming flew over to go through pre-production with us a few weeks before recording. He first came to one of our shows at glamorous Bradford. The next day he visited our rehearsal space (rundown warehouse with carpet) and we sat down and played through our 10 proposed songs. He sat and watched/listened. After each song he’d go through the good and bad parts of the songs. Funnily enough he liked pretty much all of it. I think there were only three or four things in all the 10 songs he made changes to for the better. As a producer he’s brilliant. I’ve said it before but he’s such a laidback, cool guy. It’s hard to not get on with him. His vision for the album was 95% exactly the same as ours. Things about Metallica the average metalhead may not know? Yes. Lars actually played ‘Dyers Eve’ so shut the fuck up already!"
