Former Soulfly Guitarist Returns To Ill Nino

In a recent stream, former Soulfly guitarist Marc Rizzo announced that he has returned to Ill Nino, who he played with from 1998 to 2002. Rizzo featured on their self-titled EP, as well as the albums "Revolution Revolución" and "Confession." In the stream, Rizzo said:

"We will be announcing it soon, but I’m doing some recording for the new Ill Niño record. I’m super-excited; it’s a different band. It’s not the band it was, obviously, from back when I was in the band, in 2002, when I left. A lot of things have changed. It’s great to reconnect with Laz (Pina) and Dave (Chavarri) and work with the new singer Marcos (Leal), who’s an incredible singer.

"We’re going to record this new record. I am going to do a tour with them soon, and we’ll see what the future holds. They’re going to be announcing this very soon, and I’m very excited. Yes, I’m rejoining the band." More...

The Agonist Singer Discusses New EP, Beer And More

Everyone knows that when a band starts out, it's a long way to the top and they'll have to endure some very hard times to get where they are. Some bands don't just fight their way to recognition and fame, they battle to stay there, which only makes them more endearing. Take The Agonist, a five piece from Montreal who worked damn hard to make it, and still had to keep the wolves at bay and deal with all manner of adversity. But fight they did and now, they're arguably better than ever with a legion of devoted fans.

At the end of 2019, the band released their sixth album, "Orphans," but touring for this magnifficent opus was sadly cut short thanks to the pandemic. Nevertheless, The Agonist has done what they always have and soldiered on and now, almost two years later, the metal world is being treated to a brand new EP entitled, "Days Before The World Wept."

To discover the meaning behind the title, why the group decided to release an EP instead of a full album, their recent partnetship with Vox&Hops/Brewtal and much more, we caught up with vocalist Vicky Psarakis. You can watch the interview in full below.

Diamond Oz: The new EP, “Days Before The World Wept” is out on October 15th. What can you tell me about the title of the EP?

Vicky Psarakis: Well the title is from one of the songs on the EP. It’s pretty representative of the lyrics on the album and I felt like it was just the strongest title. It’s a title that you read and you can’t help but feel something while reading it and when we were trying to think of an EP title, it was just the one that stood out the most to me.

Oz: It’s a very strong title and very evocative, as well as being appropriate for the real world right now.

Vicky: Funny enough, I actually wrote the lyrics to that song way before any of this craziness started with the pandemic and all that. I actually wrote it in mid-2019, so it has nothing to do with the current situation, however I can see how one would relate to it.

Oz: Yeah, unfortunately it seems it’s going to be one of those titles that people will associate with the pandemic.

Vicky: And that’s OK because I think the way I write my lyrics anyway, they’re always up for interpretation and I like writing in a way where anyone can relate based on their own experiences, because I think the song is stronger when you do that. If you write about something specific that you only relate to and no one else, then you’re not really grabbing someone and pulling them towards you. So I’m perfectly OK, like, when I hear other interpretations of my lyrics, it actually makes me smile.
