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.
So I interviewed Mr. Jaap Waagemaker of Nuclear Blast about the label itself and other related topics, he currently occupies the roles of A&R, head of UK Promotions and is a product manager. Listen to the interview 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.
