Fates Warning

SOURCE – Where do you think Theories Of Flight stands in terms of your past releases? Ray Alder (Vocals) – I think it’s a bit more straight forward than some of our other albums. Of course it has a couple of 10 minute songs, which is very like us but it also some very melodic […]

K-X-P

SOURCE – III Part 2 signalled the stronger re-emphasis on electronics with this album. What inspired heading down this route again? Timo Kaukolampi (vocals, synths & misc.) – K-X-P is live electric hybrid. We usually never have guitars on records. This is maybe one of the reasons. Guitar sounding things are usually bass by Tuomo […]

Rotting Christ

SOURCE – Even though the band has been at this for years, was there a song on Rituals that stands out as one of the most challenging to write or complete? Is there a song where the end result was totally worth the time and energy expended on it? Sakis Tolis (Vocals/Guitar) – I do not […]

Nervosa

Illdisposed

SOURCE – What should the fans expect of this new album Grey Sky Over Black Town and how would you describe it to the fans that have not listened to it yet? Jakob Batten Hansen (Guitar) – A death metal album packed with brutality, groove and heaviness. Fast songs, slow songs, mid-tempo songs. It has […]

Convulse

SOURCE – After having been together for such a long time, does that make it harder or easier to come up with new material? Rami Jämsä (Guitar/Vocals) – It’s true that we have been together for a long time. Everybody knows we had 18 years hiatus, but after all Convulse has been active all together […]

Beseech

SOURCE – After a series of albums in the 2000s, you completely dropped out of sight for about ten years. Were you still involved in music in any way?

Amoral

SOURCE – The new record In Sequence sounds amazing and it’s out there! How do you feel about it? What has the feedback been so far? Ben Varon (Guitars) – Thank you! The first reviews we’ve seen have all been really good, even excellent. The fans seem to enjoy it as well, so it’s looking good […]

Master

SOURCE – With your twelfth and one of your best albums [An Epiphany of Hate] in my opinion, what keeps you guys at that edge after all these years? As cliché as it is, it’s hard not to be comparative against the notion that these things have an expiration date. Paul Speckman (Vocals, bass) – […]

Ignite

SOURCE – A War Against You came out in January, it was really well received by fans and critics alike. In hindsight is there anything about the album you would have changed? Brett Rasmussen (Bass) – Probably only the fact that it took so long. It would have been cool to release this album a […]

Borknagar

SOURCE – Winter Thrice is described as almost the music culmination of Borknagar’s musical evolution and growth over the years. Can you explain this please? Øystein G. Brun (Guitar) – This being our 10th album and since we have been around for 20 years, we wanted to do something special with this album. So one […]

Draconian

SOURCE – Speaking of those beginnings, I’m curious as to where that was specifically for you in your youth – where you sort of had that moment of clarity that set you on the path to where you are now? Johan Ericson (Guitar) – No, not really. When I was younger me and some friends […]

One Machine

SOURCE – You used an Indiegogo.com campaign to fund the recording of The Final Cull. Looking back, what are thoughts on the crowdfunding experience? Do you think would do it again?

SOURCE – What’s been happening with the band between the release of Iconoclastic and now? Samuli Peltola (Guitar) – Lot’s of things. We did the longest European tour that any Finnish band has done (with Children of Bodom) when Iconoclastic came out in late 2013. That tour cost us our former lead-singer and probably a […]
