A Conversation with Shroud Eater

Working in the sweltering clubs of Miami and the surrounding area, Shroud Eater has been an undeniable force in underground, DIY metal since the release of their newest creation, "ThunderNoise." Taking time out of the hectic schedule of daily life and promoting the band, the three members of Shroud Eater, Jeannie Saiz, Janette Valentine and Felipe Torres sat down to chew on some of our questions, as we talk about life, music and doing it on your own.

Interview with Paul Allender of Cradle of Filth

It takes a uniquely creative mind to be the burgeoning force behind the free-wheeling, exploratory and atmospheric riffs that power the band Cradle of Filth. Paul Allender is that mind and is that man. Recently, I got a chance to fire some questions at Paul concerning his band, his music and his art.
--With all the evolution of Cradle of Filth, you've been called extreme metal, black metal, speed metal, all kinds of things. What do you think most accurately describes you as a band?
Yes, I’ve heard of all these tags. Personally, I think the best way to describe us is as an extreme metal band.

Interview - Fenriz of Darkthrone

Sometimes in the annals of music history, there is a band with a long history of doing things their own way and defying all manner of convention. One of the bands in heavy metal that exemplifies that very ideal is Darkthrone, fresh off the release of their latest effort, "Circle the Wagons." I managed to steal a few minutes of Fenriz's time, and wanted to see what gives him the drive to go on. Read below to see his thoughts on his own band, metal as a genre, and naturally, cinema of all types, including horror. Enjoy!
"Circle the Wagons" appears to have a heavy punk influence. Was there a certain sound you wished to capture, or elements you wants to incorporate into the recording of the album?
Not as punky as the two albums before, this one has a lot more heavy metal a la 1979-1985! And my songs are most often fast heavy metal (SPEED METAL) inspired from those times...but naturally as I am metals answer to John McEnroe, when I sing those angry lyrics it's bound to sound "punky". And I've listened to ALL kinds of punk on a very regular basis since 1986. So Bob's your uncle. And I guess we don't wish or plan like you insinuate here, we're all natural, we record song by song (meet up and record every time we each have a song ready) and never talk about musical direction, we just make what we currently need to make. Follow our hearts, it's total freedom as usual in the Darkthrone camp.

A warning: Megan Fox dishes out the movie's plot (up until people start dying), so if you want to go into the movie cold, turn off the sound until 1:10 of course be warned that if you do that you'll miss the dirty talk!
