Video Interview: Alex Camargo of Krisiun
Interviewed and produced by Victor Augusto

The Brazilian Death Metal band Krisiun became very respected among the legends that made this style so strong around the world, and they have just released a new album “Mortem Solis” after four years without new material.

Our friend from Brazil, Victor Augusto, had a chat with the vocalist/bassist Alex Camargo to find out more about the early days of the band, that is considered a legendary one, especially in their homeland. They also talked about the band’s offering.

I hope you enjoy it!

Video Interview with Marquis De Sade

Marquis De Sade Logo

For several decades Marquis De Sade were the epitome of the British cult Metal band…highly respected but quite elusive. Now, however, the band is about to make an unexpected comeback.

Formed in the south of London around 1979, Marquis De Sade remained active for about three years. The line-up back then consisted of Kriss Gordelier on vocals, Kriss’ brother Pete Gordelier on bass, San Remo on keyboards, Gary ‘Gazza’ Pope on drums and Gary’s brother Kevin on guitars. Together they crafted some amazing material.

Sadly Kevin passed away quite recently and his shoes have been filled by Pauly Gordelier (brother of Kriss and Pete) while keyboard maestro Giles ‘Doc’ Holland has replaced San Remo.

This is probably the first interview the band has given in over 40 years. As one might imagine, it’s quite a revealing one!

Video Interview With Venomous

Video Interview With Venomous
By Victor Augusto

In February of 2021, I was lucky enough to discover another brilliant Brazilian band to review. More than just loving their music on a first listen, I was astonished just how many details the EP “Tribus” offered, despite only having just four tracks on it. The lyrical subjects, the cover art and the music were so rich that I spent way more time than usual to analyse and try to describe them. 

Today, more than a year after that, I am glad that I had the chance to talk with vocalist Thiago Pereira and the Guitarist Ivan Landgraf to understand more about what they put into Venomous’s music.

I hope you enjoy this Brazilian Melodic Death Metal band as much as I’ve enjoyed discovering them.

Interview with Adam Biggs, of Rivers Of Nihil
Interviewed and Recorded by Sheri Bicheno

As soon as I heard that Rivers of Nihil were about to unleash their new album, “The Work”, via Metal Blade Records, I rushed to submerge myself in this absolute journey of an album… and I was not disappointed. 

Philadelphia based Rivers Of Nihil are certainly no strangers to the abundance of growth around Progessive Death Metal, with their years spanning since 2009, and 4 stunning studio albums, 2 LP’s, and an impressive itinerary of shows under their belts. 

It needs to be noted that the album artwork featured for Rivers of Nihil is none other than that of the renowned Dan Seagrave (Memoriam, Entombed, Lawnmower Deth) and the links to the fantastic artwork on the new album connects to those of the elder… my advice – go and find out!

This has got to be one of my favourite releases of 2021 by far – paired with the anticipation after their success with “Where Owls Know My Name”, Rivers of Nihil offer a new palette with “The Work”. I was lucky enough to be joined by bassist Adam Biggs to have a chat about the concepts and deeper exploration behind their new offering. Have a watch below:

Video Interview with JIMMY WALDO

Jimmy Waldo Interview Title Image

Video Interview with JIMMY WALDO
By Chris Galea

Keyboard player Jimmy Waldo has an impressive résumé. After finding success with New England, he went on to be a co-founding member of Alcatrazz and played with Blackthorne, Quiet Riot, The Graham Bonnet Band and many more.

For those not familiar, Blackthorne was a relatively short lived band that, thanks to the changing musical landscape arrived without much fanfare, in the early 1990’s. With a line-up that included Waldo, Bob Kulick, Graham Bonnet, Frankie Banali and Chuck Wright, they should have been huge but, unfortunately it was not to be. Now their only officially released album has been repackaged with a host of unreleased, reworked and demo material.

Chris recently had the honour to talk to Jimmy about the excellent Blackthorne 2CD reissue package, as well as the forthcoming, brand new, Alcatrazz album “V” and more!

Huge thanks to Jimmy for the interview and to Chris for putting it together

Enjoy!

Video Interview with DOOGIE WHITE

Video Interview with DOOGIE WHITE
The Flying Scotsman
By Chris Galea

Sometimes it just takes a little initiative to change everything. For Doogie White that initiative was probably when he gave Ritchie Blackmore’s management a cassette containing some songs with him singing. That eventually led him to join Rainbow and his career has since flown from peak to pinnacle.

Douglas ‘Doogie’ White was born in Motherwell (Scotland) on the 7th March 1960. He sings or has sung with bands such as La Paz, Alcatrazz, Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force, Praying Mantis, Tank…and Rainbow and has collaborated with the cream of contemporary music.

In this interview Doogie and I discuss recent (and not-so-recent) musical involvements, the re-release of his only solo album (called “As Yet Untitled”) and ponder over the general state of things.

Enjoy!

Hello to you all, It’s Simon…

It’s a funny old time, isn’t it? Nobody planned for all this, but then complete lack of planning has never been something to hold back Lawnmower Deth, who after all these decades are still with us, still daft as brushes and still making us smile.

On 7th July 2021 I had the chance to catch up with their singer Pete, who is full of enthusiasm for their recently announced, last minute & unplanned Headline show at Bloodstock in a few weeks, brimming with news about their upcoming, yet ultra-secret, first studio album this century and positively bouncing off the walls with enthusiasm for life in general! Enjoy!
