EMQ’s with ASSASSIN

EMQ’s with ASSASSIN

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Düsseldorf, Germany based Thrash Metal band Assassin. Huge thanks to bassist Joachim Kremer for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

My name is Joachim. I am the bass player. Assassin were founded 1985 in Düsseldorf/Germany and after two successful demo-tapes, the band was signed by record company SPV/Steamhammer. 1987 the first album “The Upcoming Terror” and one year later the second album “Interstellar Experience” were recorded and released. In 1989 the band split up after some problems and a raid in the rehearsal room.

In 2002 ASSASSIN were re-founded and did their first show at Wacken Open Air in 2003. In 2005 the band recorded and published their third album “The Club” with their own label “AGD Records”, after ASSASSIN played shows all over Europe. In 2009 the band recorded a demo and a year later SPV/Steamhammer signed ASSASSIN once again. April 2010 the band were offered to play a tour in Asia, and they went off to play shows in Beijing and at the True Thrash Fest/Osaka. In summer 2010 the band recorded their fourth album “Breaking The Silence” with producer Harris Johns, which was released in February 2011. In Summer 2011 the first two albums were released as a remaster named “Chronicles of Resistance” with a lot of bonus material. After release they went on tour in countries like Greece, Poland, Denmark and Sweden once again. In 2012 the band played an outstanding South American tour in countries like Brazil, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru and Chile. A year later Assassin released their first DVD “Chaos and Live Shots” with SPV/Steamhammer again. Beginning 2014 singer Robert Gonnella left the band. Assassin decided to go on with Ingo “Crowzak” Bajonczak. In October 2015 they went into the studio again to record their fifth album “Combat Cathedral”. It was released May 2016 by SPV again. A short time before the release Michael Hoffmann decided to leave the band because of different musical opinions.

EMQ’s with Rambomesser

EMQ’s with Rambomesser

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Ulm, Germany based Thrash/Alternative Metal band, Rambomesser. Huge thanks to them for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Rambomesser was founded in late 2015. The four guys from Ulm (South Part of Germany) were already very active as a crossover band around the turn of the millennium under the name Acrid Groove. Among other things, the stage was then shared with acts such as H-Blockx, Son Goku feat. Thomas D., Megaherz or the Baffdecks.

Musically, the four are now treading new paths. German lyrics are combined with cutting riffs and driving beats. In terms of style, Rambomesser move somewhere between Bay Area Thrash, Neue Deutsche Härte and Alternative Metal, with the crossover roots still flashing through here and there. With a small wink, the cheeky-ironic lyrics move away from the usual metal clichés. The self-titled EP, recorded in 2017, proved their musical diversity for the first time.

Full Demo

With the EP, Rambomesser went “on the road”, mainly in the region of South Germany to rock the clubs. But also, audiences from further away were pleased, for example, in Vienna (Café Carina) and Zurich (Ebrietas). Other highlights for Rambomesser were the appearances at the Bulletproof Festival in 2018 and headliner show in 2019.

A music video should of course not be missing, so the song ‘Rambomesser’ was shot in mid-2018 to be finally released in October 2018. You can watch the video here:

At some point in 2019, songwriting for Rambomesser’s current album “Krawall am Kiosk” finally started: This was published in May 2020. “Krawall am Kiosk” contains 5 new songs, as well as those already contained on the EP, “Rambomesser”. Musically speaking, “Krawall am Kiosk” represents the consequent further development of the path chosen for “Rambomesser”. On the one hand, there are catchy choruses and, as in the case of ‘Mache-Lieb-Lang’, melodic verses; on the other hand, Rambomesser overall have increased their heaviness and speed compared to its predecessor: however, the result is the typical Rambomesser kick-ass metal style.

Full Album

You can get an idea of this on the current single ‘Action Star’, of course this also has a video:

How did you come up with your band name?

Because we’re 80’s kids and love action movies or TV shows from this time. In our childhood, a Rambo knife was the coolest thing ever.

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

We’re based at the countryside of Ulm. It’s a city between Munich and Stuttgart in Germany. The Metal scene is still alive but lots of young people are into electronic music.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

EP “Krawall am Kiosk” (Riot at the kiosk) 2020, Music Video ‘Action Star’ 2020

Who have been your greatest influences?

Metallica, Pantera, Rammstein, Rush, System Of A Down, Faith No More

What first got you into music?

Drummer (Markus) and Bass player (Matthias) started with 3 years playing xylophone before they started “real” instruments like drum and guitar at 6 years old. 😉

First contact with metal bands: AC/DC, Metallica, Beatles, Motörhead…

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Rammstein, Metallica, and of course Geddy Lee from Rush to have detailed discussion about early Fender Jazz Basses (especially models built between 1964 – 1972).

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Wacken Open Air (Germany) – it’s the biggest metal festival

Burning Man Festival (USA) – it’s the coolest festival

Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium) – very cool bands and people

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

String Tanga underwear from a fan, thrown on stage……………but more as a joke, because she was a friend, haha!

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Stay healthy, bang your head and buy our merch! 😊

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Cliff Burton

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Love jamming sessions at rehearsal room and the following creation process of a song.

Hate the dying live scene of underground bands.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Reset back to 1980, so good music would have the chance of a future, haha! And the support of underground bands and small locations.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

“Master of Puppets” – Metallica

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

CD’s

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Headliner at Bulletproof Festival summer 2019

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Non musician!

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

The girls of Babymetal…

What’s next for the band?

Finally, some gigs after Corona, new video and writing new songs for sure.

Amorphia – Merciless Strike

Amorphia – Merciless Strike
Awakening Records
Date: 15/01/2020
Running Time: 36:04
Review by Victor Augusto
8.5/10

Once again, I’m astonished to see how far Heavy Metal music can go around the world. Recently, I reviewed a band from Bangladesh, and I talked about how if access to information through the internet didn’t exist, we probably would never know about smaller bands from many places around the world, and now here I am, finding another amazing band! This time, it’s a band from India, pretty much next door to Bangladesh, called Amorphia! The thing that impressed me most about them is how they display a very experienced kind of style, that I would associate with a band on their third or fourth album release, living in a country where their music is popular, and the Heavy Metal scene is strong. Actually, it’s only the band’s second album! But from what I can see, they’ve been received well by the critics since their first release.

Eighties Old School Thrash Metal. Yes, this definition mostly definitely is Amorphia’s music. On first listen, I felt like I had travelled back to the days when I listened to old German releases like Kreator or Sodom. To be more specific, if you took the war theme disgraces that Sodom talked about, Tom Angelripper’s singing style, and the guitar technique of Kreator, you’d probably get something similar to Amorphia. Their track, ‘Upcoming Terror’, is a perfect example of this. Of course, this is just a reference to help you picture the band’s spirit. There are many more influences, from all the old school Thrash Metal bands.

Some songs, like ‘Radiation Overdose’, which is my favorite track from the album, make you imagine the concept from the lyrics. It’s political criticism about the traumas and consequences of war, and it got me thinking that this theme is still important to reflect upon, even though bands have been using these kind of lyrics for decades, because all these political issues are still happening around the world.

What we have here is a short album with all songs in the same cadence, just exploring different techniques on drums, or solos. Vasu Chandran’s riffs are amazing and responsible for bringing the heaviness to the music. I liked the bass lines from Faizaan Mecci, and they’re not hidden behind the guitar wall. They create interesting structures that are independent from the rest of the sound. Vivek Prasad plays linear fast rhythms throughout the album and uses a lot of drum loops to make the music interesting. The snare drum sound is loud and it gave me the sense hearing Amorphia at a concert.

As I said before, all tracks have similar structures and are amazing, but the album’s title track ‘Merciless Strike’ is a bit different. This song chooses faster drum passages with double bass and explores faster guitar picking. That amazing independent bass line that I talked about by Faizaan Mecci is present in this song. It is, probably, the most complete song from the album.

“Merciless Strike”is just the band’s second album and Amorphia shows the maturity of a much more experienced band who live on the road and have many albums released. I have no idea if Thrash Metal is a popular genre in India to inspire new bands to play as well as Amorphia, but I can assure you that this is a pure Old School Thrash Metal album, with good production that sounds aggressive, but with a clear sonority at the same time!

EMQs with BLACK RABBIT

EMQs with BLACK RABBIT

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Apeldoorn, Netherlands based Thrash/Death Metal band, Black Rabbit. Huge thanks to drummer, Max Hendriks for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Max Hendriks – Drums

Black Rabbit started back in 2014, when Jelle and Hidde started playing guitar together. They found their own riffs and started to get the hang of it more and more. They figured it would be nice to have a complete band and teamed up with a bassist and after some time a drummer as well. After some time, a vocalist was added too, and we started playing our first few gigs. After some line-up changes, I joined the band as their drummer. Since I have a big influence on the Dutch metal-scene, I gave them the input they’d wanted all this time. Black Rabbit finally took off, and now we are starting to make a name for ourselves.

How did you come up with your band name?

Well I didn’t but Jelle and Hidde did. The band name already existed before the band. During a barbeque, Jelle and Hidde were making parodies on famous metal band. When they bumped on Black Sabbath, it immediately became Black Rabbit. The whole idea of ‘rabbit’ comes from the fact that Jelle had a black rabbit as a pet. They kept the name as a sort of screw you to the people who think that metal bands should always have brutal names.

What country are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

Netherlands, and the scene is alive, but let’s say that the average Dutch metalhead is static. We have a small scene with lovely people. Like everywhere, the big shows are always busy, but the small bands do not get the venue full.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single or Video)

“Warren of Necrosis” EP, January 9th, 2020

Who have been your greatest influences?

Kreator and Carcass

What first got you into music?

My parents. They made music before I was born.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Randy Blythe of Lamb of God, Mille Petrozza of Kreator or Chuck Billy of Testament

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Definitely Hellfest. If you love music, you go to Hellfest. They never disappoint in their line-up and give opportunities to smaller bands.

What is the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

An Alice Cooper Funko

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Thank you so much for your support, I know its a cliché, but I play my music because I love it and it is always amazing to see other people like it.

If you could bring one Metal/Rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

The Rev of Avenged Sevenfold

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Being free and doing the stuff you love. I hate setting up the whole drums!

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Make CD’s more important again and improve the pay rate on digital streams.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

“The Outer Ones” – Revocation

What is best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s, or Downloads?

CD

What is the best gig that you have played to date?

Our release show in Gigant on 9th of January 2020

If you were not a musician, what else would you be doing?

Probably something with making instruments!

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

Chuck Billy
Chris Adler
Gary Holt
Steve Harris
James Hetfield

What is next for the band?

We are aiming to release a single before the end of October, and somewhere in the middle of next year, our debut album!

EMQ’s with THRASHERWOLF

EMQ’s with THRASHERWOLF

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with London, UK based Thrash Metal band, Thrasherwolf. Huge thanks to frontman, Daniel Lucas, for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Hi, my name is Daniel Lucas from the London Thrash metal band Thrasherwolf. I’m the front man which means I shout blue murder and shred at the same time, sounds challenging and it’s just as hard as it looks. The band was formed when, in my college years, I thought…fuck this, I want to make metal because I’m good at it and it makes me feel amazing! So, I spent some time, a couple of years maybe, going through different people and auditioning them for the band, which at first was going to be called “Metal moon”. I’m damn happy we changed it! I finally met the people I’m with now and things just clicked, there’s a union, a real pack feeling. They’re like brothers and one of them biologically is. Now the pack is on the rise, so you all better be looking out for us in future, because we got some good shit coming your way!

How did you come up with your band name?

I noticed a lot of bands with wolf in the title tend to make it. Call it stupid ol’ superstition, but I went with it. I also coupled it up with trying to be raw and down to earth, so we do exactly as it says on the tin. We thrash and wolves are cool! Done. Simple, moral, fun to eat.

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

We’re from England, London specifically. I’d say our scene is thriving, especially the more you go to the north of London. Camden and Central London have some amazing places for young unsigned talent. It has a magical way of bringing acts together.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

Well our first release will technically be the single from our upcoming album; the album entitled “We Are Revolution”, is being released in mid-September, and the single mid-July. The single is called ‘The Vortex’, and you better hold on to your arses, because it will tear you a new one in a flash!

Who have been your greatest influences?

My greatest influences should be obvious to anyone who has either seen us, heard us and or actually checked what I look like! Bands like Megadeth, Metallica, and Kreator make up my influential bread and butter.

What first got you into music?

I picked up a guitar and heard Metallica and Slayer. I started writing stuff almost immediately based on what I loved about the style and found that I was loving every second and I was really good at it. Why waste talent and opportunity like that?

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Personally, I’d love to collaborate with Annihilator, I adore their music and they’re a band I never get tired of, and I’d consider it a personal sin to hit the skip button when ever they came on my iPod.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Gotta be Download or Bloodstock. They’re both such an important part of what makes metal in England great. Both have amazing atmospheres with amazing acts and even offer opportunities to younger bands.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

The weirdest gift we’ve ever received are the countless compliments and encouragements! I say weird because we never expected them, we just go to play, and they like us. We’re honestly so grateful to them all.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

You’ve got a ton of good shit to come very soon! Keep an eye out and an ear to the ground, members of the pack!

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Let them rest. Nothing crueler than making them have to go through the whole dying process again.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

I love the feeling of unlimited creativity! The chance to feel like a god when you create something amazing from nothing and then have the chance to share it with others. It’s an amazing feeling when the record takes form from your imagination, and you actually hear it for the first time.

Hate is a strong word. Dislike would be more accurate. I dislike that there are people out there who censor creativity and artistry just to meet their own agendas. We try not to work with those sorts of people.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Absolutely nothing as of yet. We aren’t experienced enough to understand all its nuances, it’s do’s or its don’ts. We’re learning as we go along. We wouldn’t have the right to change anything about a hard-working industry without more knowledge and understanding first.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Onslaught – “The Sound of Violence”. Just truly…superb in every way.

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

CD’s, nothing like holding a physical copy in your hand, actually feeling like you own it. Mind you, downloads lessen clutter and are quicker to access.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

The time we played the Valentine’s Day Thrashacre at The Fighting Cocks in Kingston with Hellfekted and Bangover. The crowd, the atmosphere, and the over all experience was just like a huge learning curve for us all, and really gave us the confidence to push forward with Thrasherwolf! And we got our first mosh pit! We went on from that to win the Metal 2 The Masses pit rounds at the very next gig, so the proof is in the pudding, as they say.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Probably be passed out in the pub! Oh, you mean work wise? I probably would have gone into acting.

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

I’d invite Dave Mustaine, because he can bring the wine, Corpse Grinder Fisher, because he can bring the meat, James Maynard Keenan because he can bring the boof, the guys from Primus because they can bring the cheese, and lastly I’d invite James Hetfield because he can bring the table.

What’s next for the band?

Well at the moment Thrasherwolf are focusing on the PR and marketing for the release of our new album “We Are Revolution” coming out mid-September. We are releasing the first single on the 17th of July (preorders available on the 3rd) and the second single mid-August. Other than that, it’s dealing with our online presence because of the lockdown, and getting our gigs/tours and festivals booked up for the next year, big things to come let me tell you.

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

Distrokid for starters, they’re amazing at what they do and they’re Glen Fricker approved! Great price too. Lots of options and lots of destinations all of which can do nothing but aid us.

Jaffa Cakes! Are they a cake or a biscuit?

After convening with the rest of my band and coming up with an answer, Jaffa cakes are definitely biscuits, if you don’t agree, fight me!

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Keep an eye on our social media pages! That’s Thrasherwolf (all one word) on Facebook and Thrasherwolfthebandofficial on insta. Big things to come guys, stay safe, join our pack if you haven’t already and come get lost with us in the eye of the vortex!

EMQ’s with 3000AD

EMQ’s with 3000AD

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with Christchurch, New Zealand based Modern Thrash Metal band 3000AD. Huge thanks to guitarist Sam Pryor for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Sam Pryor, I play guitar and do some backing vocals. While the band in its current form is relatively new, the members have been involved in various projects together going way back to high school. 3000AD just happened to be the combination that felt best to us, so we proceeded to throw everything we had at our debut album “The Void”.

How did you come up with your band name?

The band name started as a song name (the opening song on our album) but once we had established the lyrical content and imagery for the album it seemed to be a good representation for the bands branding as a whole. The Void is very much set in a bleak dystopian vision of the future, around the year 3000AD.

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

We are from New Zealand. Metal in general is pretty underground here, there is not a lot of mainstream exposure or support like there is for other more “accepted” genres. The scene is predominantly a death / grind metal one so thrash bands are a bit of a rarity.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

Our latest release is “The Void” it’s a first full-length album and it’s available currently on all streaming services and physical copies are also available worldwide.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Speaking only for myself when I discovered Metallica at around 12 that was me set for several years. I just became obsessed and listened to them almost exclusively. Then I went on to discover the other thrash greats like Slayer which I would say would be the second greatest influence. Many years later the German titans Kreator and Sodom were probably the next big rabbit hole I went down. I would say for each of those bands the first album I discovered became very influential, no matter if the album was considered to be one of their best or not haha. For example, the first Slayer album I got was “Diabolus In Musica”, and to this day I fucking love that album even though it’s widely considered to be a low point in the career. People are stupid though; I feel like a lot get their opinions from forums and social media.

What first got you into music?

I always listened to the radio a lot as a kid, I remember hearing Bohemian Rhapsody and just being fascinated by it. It was so different to everything else I had heard, and it had a sort of theatrical narrative that gave it an epic quality. Plus, it was just super fucking rocking haha. Once I found out that song was by Queen they became my first favourite band and launched me into guitar driven music.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Well we don’t have a dedicated lead guitarist so I would like Sami from Kreator come in and rip out some killer solos. He’s super underrated in my opinion, Kreator became a force to be reckoned with after he joined.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Hellfest in France because it’s an absolutely mind-blowing festival. It’s like its own world or something, the level of production and the atmosphere. I’ve been to a lot of festivals but that one is something else altogether.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

I have yet to receive one but then we have not played many shows with this band because all our time went into the album production. Maybe after the European tour in August with Necronomicon I can report back haha.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Thank you for all the support whether it be via messages / streams / album sales. We never take it for granted especially when there are so many bands out there to choose from.

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Cliff Burton, no question. Imagine a new Metallica album with him?! Imagine how much he would energise the other guys, if only!

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Just having the ability to create exactly the music you want to hear is very fulfilling. Jamming is very therapeutic too, it’s something I’ve been doing since I was about 14 and when you start ripping into a song it very much is still the same mindset and excitement as it was at the beginning which is very cool. I think that’s actually one of the best things about being in a band and it’s available to anyone regardless of success level.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

I do miss the days of physical albums being the norm. I think if you had to go down to the store and grab a CD for $20 odd dollars and you could only afford one each week you inherently would value the music more, invest more time in it, and ultimately get more out of it. Spotify is great for discovering music but to this day I still buy CDs / Vinyl because they sound better (still) and you get a more immersive experience with having the physical album and the booklet etc.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Well I could list obvious thrash masterpieces like Puppets, but I would say for an absolute classic that’s not so obvious, Exodus – “Tempo Of The Damned”. I think that is still the best Steve Souza fronted Exodus album.

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Vinyl is best for warmth and richness, CD is best for precision and punch, cassette is good for nostalgia value, downloads are good for instant gratification / convenience. Plus, if the download is lossless they will sound as good or even better than CD.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Probably Pantera here in Christchurch way back in 2001, I was 14 and it was fucking terrifying and amazing at the same time. That definitely left a lasting impression.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Something else creative most likely, I’m a graphic designer too so I’d probably just be doing more of that.

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

James Hetfield, Christopher Hitchens, Bill Burr, Steve Jobs and Elon Musk. It would be a random as fuck party haha.

What’s next for the band?

Next, hopefully, is the Europe tour, as long as that pesky virus does not ruin our carefully laid plans again!

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

To listen: just search 3000AD on Spotify

Serenity Defiled – Dead Earth Syndicate

Serenity Defiled – Dead Earth Syndicate
Dominus Records
Release Date: 20/03/2020
Running Time: 33:48
Review by Tammy Lomax
8/10

Well hello again you beautiful people. I do hope everyone is safe, doing well and especially enjoying the marvellous weather recently. Beats the normal British weather we endure sometimes.

So, I have had the lovely privilege of reviewing Serenity Defiled’s latest album “Dead Earth Syndicate” And my oh my, what an absolute corker.

Serenity Defiled rose from the ashes of Australian band ‘Fury’ in 2011. Since then, Mick O’Neil departed and Lord Tim (Lord) joined officially as lead guitarist and vocalist plus did bass duties on the album. It’s essentially a studio project because everyone is spread across the country, and that makes the logistics kind of challenging.

Okay Tammy, so get your bum comfy and press play.

Album opener ‘Dead Earth Syndicate’ confused me a little, don’t get me wrong, I am not nitpicking! I do like the track, and it intrigued me, however, it seemed all over the place. You have an emotional intro and there’s a tech sort of vibe, then Lord Tim’s vocals arrive and I just felt a bit underwhelmed Despite this feeling, next track, ‘Purified In Flame” arched in and my skull literally split in half and blew up. Lord Tim’s vocals are literally bursting out of everything at 90mph!! Now I no longer feel confused, now I get it, quite frankly kicking myself a little. Time to get my bum comfy and REALLY get listening.

‘Pariah’ well, it’s a really imaginative track. There are some really good nasty and dirty dark riffs. It is decidedly death metal and very raw, now I am floating comfortably in my musical bubble boat. Brutal death metal is my place of home and there is a lot to digest, but I can manage big mouthfuls and I do tend to keep up. I am delighted and bouncing for more. As I got to half-way through “Dead Earth Syndicate”, I physically ran out of breath. I got more and more excited and I envisioned myself sitting in a chair, in the centre of my front room. watching these guys on stage.

So, I am a tad torn between my favourite tracks, just because there is some diverse playing throughout the entire album and not every track is the same. ‘Pariah’ and ‘Another Life’ would be the ones that really attenuate me. The level of music produced on this album is of a high standard, it is hard to believe that it’s just a studio project. In all fairness I feel these guys deserve more than that. Of course, as previously mentioned, it can be difficult with regards to logistics, but I would genuinely love to see them make the transition to a full live band.

This album is far more aggressive, and the intensity higher compared to their previous releases. Even the artwork on “Dead Earth Syndicate” is far better. You really do get a feel of ‘Mad Max’. To be honest, the timing couldn’t be more on point either.

Serenity Defiled have evolved my view of death metal in a positive light. They mix some thrash in, here and there, and have the awesome Tim Hinton slaughtering the drums! I mean this fella runs the whole sound, from my perspective. They have come a long way since the band ‘Fury’, and they are genuinely bloody cool.

This band have broken me, I am head frazzled, messy mayhem! All in this is amazing work guys. I am definitely looking forward to repairing my brain, but I cannot wait to see what Serenity Defiled come up with in the future.

Interview with Raphael Olmos and Isabela Moraes of Kamala

Interview with Raphael Olmos and Isabela Moraes of Kamala
By Victor Augusto

Hi everyone, it’s Rick,

Our man in Brazil, Victor, recently got the chance to interview Brazilian Thrash Metallers Kamala! It’s about time that some of these hardworking and very professional bands got a chance to shine outside of their homeland, and in Kamala’s case, Mainland Europe is starting to take notice. I shall now hand you over to Victor and would like to thank, not only him, but Raphael and Isabela for this interview

Keeping a Heavy Metal band alive demands a lot of work and struggle, especially in countries where this genre is not a popular one, and this work in very honorable. Against all the odds, Brazilian Thrash Metal band Kamala, after 17 years on road, has been growing fast in the last few years, especially in Europe. Their singer/guitarist Raphael Olmos, along with drummer Isabela Moraes, explain how they conquered it and the next step for their upcoming album.

Victor: Please. Introduce yourself and tell us when you started to play your instruments and what made you want to create Kamala.

Isabela: Hi, I am Isabela Moraes, drummer for almost 14 years. I have loved this instrument since childhood, because I have a cousin that plays drums too, but I started to learn properly at 15 years old, when my older sister gave me my first drumsticks.

Raphael: Hey, I am Raphael Olmos, guitarist, vocalist and founding member of Kamala.

I started to play when I was 13 years old, after watch the VHS “…a year and a half” by Metallica, I knew that I wanted to be a professional musician when I was 15/16 years old.

And I created Kamala when I was 18 years old…to make the music and the band that I wanted to listen to as a metalhead.

Victor: Since the early days, Kamala showed a different concept, when playing Thrash Metal. The Oriental visuals and sounds have been present in your music since that time. Why did you create this concept for the band?

Raphael: Kamala was born in 2003, and when I created, I wanted to make a band that mixed the heaviness and the energy of metal, with beautiful oriental visuals and melodies…and positive lyrics.

The world is already too negative, and as an artist, when we release a song or an album, we have the responsibility for each person that is connected with the band… I am not talking about religion but, for me, the oriental culture influence is more about the energy stuff, and it is really something that I admire.

Victor: In 2012, Kamala released the third, and the bands last album, with two guitar players in the line-up, “The Seven Deadly Chakras”, and since “Mantra” album (2015); you are in a trio formation. What has been the biggest change in Kamala’s sonority?

Raphael: The biggest change for me, is the way we turned more thrash metal, and more organic. The string tuning turned from drop B to drop D, and the riffs was more ‘IN YOUR FACE! As a trio, we wanted to create something that we can play live, so we need to be better musicians and explore within ourselves the most intricate (that is possible to us) playing, whilst maintaining a strong presence on stage.

Victor: It is rare to find underground bands really fighting to be professional or that want to have a life on road. It demands that the members give up their regular jobs, and live far from family and friends, and you have been on this path since 2014, when the line-up changed to a power trio. How hard was it to find people like Allan Malavasi and Isabela Moraes that had the same desire to make Kamala a famous band?

Raphael: We still have side jobs, but the main point is the band, because the band is getting bigger and bigger, and we need to make more international tours, for example, to spend more time on the road…and a band like us, needs to have all the members with the same objective, to make that happen. Many people wish to live by playing music, but they don’t live for the music, you know. Playing well, is the minimum thing to have as a professional band, but there are many others points to look out for when you share your time and energy with other musicians.

Victor: Kamala has been touring a lot in Europe since the “Mantra” album. Nowadays, you often have more concerts scheduled in Europe than in Brazil. How did the band conquer this space in Europe?

Isabela: I think this happens because we have frequent release of new material, so this creates some expectations to watch the band in action and this opens some doors to showcase our work. We always try to be the most professional that we can in all stages of our jobs within the band. For example, on every tour, we make a specific set-list presentation for every single gig, all the things that we need to speak and songs that we will play in a 40 min, 60 min or 90 min set. We try to be always prepared for any situation on stage…

Victor: From all the countries you play in Europe, France is the one that has showed a true passion for the band. I remember in 2018, when you released your last studio album “Eyes of Creation”, some journalists, who were working at Hellfest, said that they lost the count of how many people they saw wearing Kamala t-shirts in the crowd. Do you know why Kamala became so huge in France?

Raphael: Yeahhh, this is fucking amazing! No, we never expected to be so big in France, and on our first European tour, in 2013, the crowd was a little “cold”…but we returned in 2015 and, since then, we fell in love with France and the French people with our art! Every European tour, we play in France, and in 2016 we made a full French tour…playing every type of gig that you can imagine, and the energy is always AWESOME!

Victor: Recently, some endorsements have appeared and you, Raphael, have become part of the Solar guitars (Sweden) and Evertune (USA) family. How did it happen, and do you think the fact that the band has been playing a lot outside of Brazil helped with the endorsement deals?

Raphael: For sure, being in a Brazilian band, that is constantly touring outside Brazil, helped to open the “eyes and ears” of both brands.

So, besides really good visual stuff, a band with a lot of shows per year and good social media numbers is important and all those points I think were important to brands that I dreamed of and loved. It turns out that these are the brands that trust and believe in my art and work. It is something that I’m really proud of it!

Victor: Kamala has recently released its first live album called “Live in France”. You recorded this during the last Kamala’s show of the sixth European tour, in October of last year and released it in December, just 2 months after the show. How did you decide on that and how was the process to record it?

Isabela: Actually, we didn’t know that we would be recorded, we just knew that the owner of the venue planned to make a live broadcast of our concert on Facebook.

And we were really tight because it was our last gig on this tour. We played and when we were done, he told us that he had recorded our performance in multitrack…It was a big surprise for all of us when we listened. The sound was amazing and in that same moment, we decided to use this material!

Victor: The band has already started the process of recording the new album. What could we expect from the music on this album and when will you release it?

Isabela: The new album is done and ready. Now, with this pandemic situation, we are waiting for a better moment to release, but the album is really beautiful, and the songs are powerful, with intense lyrics, heavy riffs and too much groove. We loved the result and we are extremely excited to show it to all of you.

Victor: I have to say, it is so impressive how Kamala have become so huge in Brazil and in Europe without any label support. Everything you do is independent. Pure work! Do you feel that now is the right time to have one big label help you reach the next level, for example playing European festivals?

Raphael: Yes…a loooooooot of work! And for sure, we feel that we are ready for this next level, to sign with a good international label, play in summer European festivals and make full tours supporting bigger bands. We have lived all the tests through these years, and we know that with a label, the KAMALA name will become bigger and bigger, because a label searches for a band that can be on the road many days/months per year, to promote the releases, and we work a lot for this too!

Victor: Thanks a lot, and please use this space to leave a message.

Isabela: Thanks, one more time, for all the support and opportunity. It is always a pleasure to be part of this. Thanks to all the fans around the world, who have followed us all these years. Stay at home, be safe and healthy. Soon we will be together to bang our heads!!

Andralls – Bleeding For Thrash

Andralls – Bleeding For Thrash
MDD Records
Release Date: 19/10/2019
Running Time: 36:58
Review by Victor Augusto
9/10

I am not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to telling you what makes a band so respected by its fans, respect like Brazilian Thrash Metal band Andralls receive after 22 years on the road. Of course, with so many years struggling in a country which focusses on a very different musical culture from Heavy Metal, it is normal that Andralls has lived through difficult times, but it looks like all problems they have faced have helped them to get stronger and “Bleeding For Thrash”, their sixth studio album, is a good example of what I am saying.

After a short hiatus, the band returned with vocalist/guitarist Alex Coelho and everything looked good for the writing/recording of the next album, except for the fact that Alex was diagnosed with thyroid cancer during the process. He was incapable of singing for a few months, but he won this fight and finally Andralls have delivered an insane album that makes the seven years of waiting, since last album “Breakneck” was released in 2012, worth it.

Playing fast and heavy is the band’s trademark, maintaining focus on a good cadence, being not too fast or slow, just at a good Speed (Metal) to value the riff. The opening song ‘We Are the Only Ones’ is enough to understand Andralls’ sonority. Some interesting details make the album even more attractive like the song ‘Andralls on Fire, Pt. III’ which is full of references, in the lyrics, to the band’s old songs. The composition and lyrics of ‘Legion’ are a tribute to Brazilian Death Metal band Rebaelliun who had Fabiano Penna as the main composer, he was also part of Andralls line-up in the past. What the band could never imagine is that the song would become a tribute to Fabiano, as he passed away in 2018. Also, the instrumental song ‘27*02*18,’ which finishes the main album, is another tribute to Fabiano and this song title refers to the day he died (27/02/2018).

‘Acid Rain’ is a cover song for the Brazilian band Subtera and the track ‘Noiséthrash’ is much slower and breaks the sequence of fast songs. Vocals are delivered in a speech like manner and they talk about the union and passion of life among crazy Metalheads who share the same passion about music. The word Noiséthrash is a pun in Portuguese (Nois é Thrash) that is informal jargon for “We Are Thrash”. It is also a pun for Noise and Thrash, in English. Very clever, well done Andralls!

The album has two bonus live songs, recorded during SWR Barrosselas Metalfest in 2018. One is the opening song from this album that shows that Alex’s voice is still the same before and after his battle with cancer and ‘Fear Is My Ally’, originally recorded on the “Inner Trauma” album (2005), which shows the old Andralls and how the new songs keep that same spirit alive.

“Bleeding For Thrash” is more than a good Thrash Metal album. It shows a band full of passion and who are still very important to the Brazilian scene, even after so many years on the road. Welcome back Andralls, the kings of Fasthrash*.

*Jargon used by the band to define their sound. Fast and Thrash!

EMQ’s with IMPERIUM

EMQ’s with IMPERIUM

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new EMQ’s interview with West London, UK based Groove/Thrash Metal band, Imperium. Huge thanks to vocalist Ben Porter and lead guitarist Hardip Sagoo for taking part.

What is your name, what do you play, and can you tell us a little bit about the history of the band?

Ben: I’m Ben, I’m the vocalist in IMPERIUM.

Hardip: I’m Hardip – lead guitarist.

How did you come up with your band name?

Ben: It was actually a mutual agreement that should have been made in about 10 minutes! But it took months!! Our drummer James became a fucking librarian and decided to go through the entire dictionary, picking out all the words he thought were “metal”, put a few together and came up with the biggest load of shit we’ve ever heard!

Hardip: Me and Scott (Rhythm Guitarist) had the word ‘Imperium’ in mind before we met the others as we like the meaning (absolute power).

What Country/Region are you from and what is the Metal/Rock scene like there?

Ben: London, England. Our spot is top draw to be honest, we’re all based around Kingston in West London and the nights we have there are killer. Thanks to the realest people that show up to see music and the drive from our local (The Fighting Cocks). We leave with a smile every time! Apart from when we found out smoke machines are a bad idea!

Hardip: London, England. We’re surrounded by some very cool venues and the scene is growing every year. Our personal favourite is the ‘The Fighting Cocks’ in Kingston. Best place you’ll ever go.

What is your latest release? (Album, EP, Single, Video)

Ben: Our first proper single ‘Here Comes The Night’ was released on the 4th of April and Spotify and other streaming sites on the 18th!

Hardip: We recorded two songs late 2019 of which one was recently released – ‘Here Comes The Night.

Who have been your greatest influences?

Ben: Proper metal music, any bands that have life and energy in what they do. Older stuff like Slayer, Metallica, Judas Priest and Pantera right up to Power Trip & Havoc but I personally get influenced by anything that sounds good!

Hardip: Nirvana, Metallica and Hendrix will always be my biggest influences. I’m also heavily influenced by a lot of the classic metal bands – Pantera, Megadeth, Judas Priest etc.

What first got you into music?

Ben: Well…my uncle gave me a Rammstein album when I was about 11. I think and that pretty much paved the way… and was fully reinforced when I got a Bolt Thrower CD soon after! But around the same time, weirdly enough, Scott and Hardip, the guitarists, both went to my school, I was in Scott’s brothers year and wanted to get into playing some strings…so I walked in on those two in the music studio playing ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’ and got stopped in my tracks! It took about a year for me to find that song and realise it was Metallica. I didn’t meet Scott and Hardip properly for about 7 years after that incident!

Hardip: I’ve been into music as far back as I remember. When I was at an early age, I accidentally picked up by sister’s cassette player instead of mine, pressed play and on came Nirvana’s album – “Bleach”. I was immediately drawn into it without knowing who or what it was. It just escalated from there.

If you could collaborate with a current band or musician who would it be?

Ben: Has to be Metallica really, they could clap, and you’d have all the fans and backing in the world.

Hardip: Metallica for sure.

If you could play any festival in the world, which would you choose and why?

Ben: Wacken Open Air! For me that would be golden!

Hardip: Download and Hellfest.

What’s the weirdest gift you have ever received from a fan?

Ben: A verbal gift I suppose! Our song just finished, and two geezers came up and sang ‘Master Exploder by Tenacious D at me! Haha!

Hardip: A guy came up to me after a gig and said he collects plectrums from all lead guitarists he watches. I think he got confused in his drunken state and gave me a plectrum from a band he previously watched.

If you had one message for your fans, what would it be?

Ben: Our fans are only just building as we’re new on the street, so I’d just say again how thankful I and the rest of the guys are for all your comments, and energy for ‘Here Comes The Night’! We have tons more coming your way so stay ready.

Hardip: Come join us for a beer!

If you could bring one rock star back from the dead, who would it be?

Ben: That’s a hard one, Maybe Cliff (Burton) though! As that death was proper out of order.

Hardip: Too many to choose from but I think it needs to be Dimebag.

What do you enjoy the most about being a musician? And what do you hate?

Ben: I love throwing people about in the mess of it all! That’s proper fun. The thrill from people explaining how our songs made them feel is serious business too. But the worst thing is having all that equipment as a vocalist! The boys don’t even help me in with my mic!!

Hardip: The best thing is it brings out my creativeness. I don’t hate anything about it.

If you could change one thing about the music industry, what would it be?

Ben: I’d just rewind it 30 years and change nothing…!

Hardip: I’d only ask for every band to make sure they support all other bands.

Name one of your all-time favourite albums?

Ben: Rammstein – “Mutter”

Hardip: Metallica – Kill ‘Em All

What’s best? Vinyl, Cassettes, CD’s or Downloads?

Ben: Vinyl man! It seems more genuine.

Hardip: Cassettes – that’s what I grew up on.

What’s the best gig that you have played to date?

Ben: O2 Islington was pretty decent, although the geezer never paid us!

Hardip: My biggest buzz was at a gig in The Fighting Cocks. The crowd were on point.

If you weren’t a musician, what else would you be doing?

Ben: I fight, in full contact medieval combat. It’s wicked, look it up

Hardip: More time for sport I reckon.

Which five people would you invite to a dinner party?

Ben: My Grandad, Ozzy, Ricky Gervais, Odin and Till Lindemann!

Hardip: Ricky Gervais, Hendrix, Mike Tyson, Richard Dawkins, James Hetfield!

What’s next for the band?

Ben: Finalise our next song and music video which should be a little later in the year! Then back to Uncle Oz at Hidden Tracks (Studios) to record the rest of our EP.

Hardip: To Create more and more!

What Social Media/Website links do you use to get your music out to people?

www.instagram.com/imperium_uk/
www.facebook.com/ImperiumSound/

Our website is:
www.imperiumsound.net/

Jaffa Cakes? Are they a cake or a biscuit?

Ben: 100% cake. You wouldn’t call a hobnob a cake, would you?

Hardip: Got to be a cake!

Thank you for your time. Is there anything else that you would like to add?

Ben: Thanks to you Ever Metal for the questions and helping out us out there! If you haven’t yet, Please go and check out our new tune, subscribe and follow all that shit and stay tuned for more!
