Interview

Enslaved Frontman On New Members And Vikings

Few bands from the Norwegian black metal scene transform themselves into a more complex entity. Emperor would of course be one example but it doesn't get any more progressive, complex and introspective than Enslaved. Since the band's debut, "Vikingligr Veldi," the band has evolved constantly and become one of the most revered Norwegian metal bands performing to this day.

At their recent show in Bristol, England with High On Fire (see interview here,) I had the pleasure of sitting down with frontman Grutle Kjellson to discuss their latest album, "E," the recruitment of new keyboardist Håkon Vinje, when we can expect new material and how he sees modern depictions of Vikings in movies and TV shows like "Valhalla Rising" and "Vikings." You can listen to the interview in full below. More...

Cripple Bastards Posts New Video Online

Italian grindcore veterans Cripple Bastards has posted a new music video online for the song, "Passi Nel Vuoto" online. You can check it out below. The song comes from the band's forthcoming new album, "La Fine Cresce Da Dentro," which will be released on November 9th through Relapse Records. Spealomg about the song, frontman Giulio The Bastard explained:

"The song ‘Passi Nel Vuoto’ (translated to ‘Steps Into The Void’) is a parallel between the annihilation of the individual lost in the most obtuse massification, induced to waste and sedated in his emotions, and the value of life increasingly low – reduced to being a cog in the consumer machine. The graphics of our new album La Fine Cresce Da Dentro are all unreleased pictures taken from the vaults of a crime magazine that existed from the 1950s through the 90s, accessed from the archives of the criminal police based in Milano, Italy. In making this video we have chosen to alternate similar photos with scenarios of mass stratification and blind conformism. As the lyrics say, ‘What’s left is desolation / but it doesn’t make sense to realize it / it’s the weight of survival: how much you spend / how much you can cost’." More...
