Global Metal Apocalypse is piloting a new form of interview which we think no other webzine, ezine, magazine (yeah um...) or video-enhanced sit as done, which is interviewing a band with themselves recording the answers as a video response as you'll see above.
Thames Burial, a Metalcore/Deathcore quintet from Colchester, Essex was confirmed to play The Perfect Storm All Day Metal Festival at the renowned Camden Underworld venue, we interviewed the band outside in one of the streets which to our dismay lead to some hilarious issues, from traffic to problems auto-cuing to shameless titty promotions.
As said, it's a pilot, any feedback will be welcome.
Global Metal Apocalypse caught up with Berkshire Metal mob Malefice at the Colchester Arts Centre on the 2nd June, we interviewed Dale and Ben from the band and the interview can be heard below.
With Crash Mansion I spoke to (L-R - Chris Jackson, LJ Hardwood and Sammy Scarlett; Kidd was not present at this time (far left)) outside Southend Chinnerys at The Dead Lay Waiting gig w/ Scarred By Beauty, Silent Descent and Crash Mansion.
With Silent Descent I spoke to Tom Callahan (far left) outside Southend Chinnerys at The Dead Lay Waiting gig w/ Scarred By Beauty, Silent Descent and Crash Mansion.
With Scarred By Beauty I spoke to Jonathan Albrechtsen (centre)outside Southend Chinnerys at The Dead Lay Waiting gig w/ Scarred By Beauty, Silent Descent and Crash Mansion.
So I caught up with Mr. Charles Edward-Alexander of Colchester-based band Imperial Vengeance, dark times indeed and with a Victorian luster, this was sure to be interesting, check out the interview below.
So I caught up with Dave Spicer of Elimination, check out the interview below.
So I caught up with the bad boys Fall To Oblivion from the unpredictable town of Stamford-Le-Hope, they won the 5th heat of the Rayleigh Battle of the Bands, so I spoke to them about whats going on - especially their latest release. Audio below.
The Rayleigh Battle of The Bands saw one band make an interesting combination of trance music and Metalcore, no not Asking Alexandria but potentially the band that will boot them off their precious standing in the Metal scene, welcome to Essex's answer to the Yorkshire terriers. From Hockley/Rayleigh is Trance-core quintet Luminescence.
Sooo, I caught up with Ol Drake (right) from Huddersfield Thrashers Evile, spoke to him about their new album 'Five Serpent's Teeth', the band's glorious history and some other topics here and there. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I did interviewing Ol.
The Metal Hammer Golden Gods, the most important day in the Metal music calender, this year 2011 saw an immense eruption of applause to the many bands who were nominated and who won it. Amongst the bands during that night, Swindon Modern Metal quintet The Dead Lay Waiting smashed windows on HMS Hammer with bad boys TesseracT, Biohazard and Black Spiders. Along the way apart from meeting the man himself Alexander Milas, editor of the Metal Hammer magazine, I caught up with members from Silent Descent (of whom recently just signed to Rising Records - same label that has The Dead Lay Waiting and Confined Within are signed onto). Interviews with the bands are as listed.

I caught up with the local Colchester lads Thames Burial (former Echoes Fall) outside, yeah outside as that's where they wanted to do it. I spoke to them about their latest release, gig supporting Sacred Mother Tongue and their latest antics. Naturally we had giggles on this one. Have fun.
