Mantle (Interview)

Mantle Music:Lost

Today we speak to Fracture of Mantle. Firstly, please tell our readers who and what you are. I am Mantle – Evolve with Mantle. So from DJ Fracture to Mantle. Why the change from DJing to music making? DJing was fun, fun with other peoples music. I wanted to express myself, my own ideas, my own thoughts. So it just seemed like the most natural thing to do. It gives me an outlet more than what djing ever could. Now you’ve released your début album “Strange Factory“. Please, tell us about it. (Inspiration. Sound. Style.) The whole concept about Strange Factory is over consumption, globalisation, the human effect on the planet via industry, supply and demand. Its bleak… Listen to […]

Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy (Interview)

Today we chat to Adrian Pain & The Dead Sexy. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? I started using the name Adrian Pain while playing in my 1st real band after high school. ‘Adrian’ was actually in tribute to my guitarist’s dad Adrian and Pain because of my life long struggle with depression.

Esprit D’Air

It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to the masters of Space-Metal the legendary Esprit D’Air. Let’s jump in with this: What the hell is a “Space Metal” band? Kai: We were not sure at first, but the founder of Fierce Panda Records, Simon Williams described our music as “space metal” when he listened to “The Hunter”. After a while, we felt it was a good way to describe our music because we have some “otherworldly” and heavy themes in our music. Where does the name Esprit D’Air come from? Kai: It means “Spirit of Air” in French, but Esprit can also mean the soul or the mind. We simply thought it sounded nice—we all brainstormed for a name, and that […]

Diablo: Rise of The Hunter

Today we speak to French-Canadian actor, Jean Drolet about his role in the new Diablo fan film “Diablo: Rise of The Hunter“. How did you get involved in Diablo: Rise of The Hunter? Well two, two years ago I was invited to a private screening by a young friend of mine Carlos Cobezas. He was the film Director and Stephanie Van Rijn Vincent (Valla) was the lead actress.

There I met Amanda Lynn Petrin (Halissa) and Luc Godbout that became DIABLO’s Film Director. We repeat one scene or two to pin point meaning sand will and then there […]

Enemy of Rome.

We recently spoke to French-Canadian, Sylvano Harvey about his recent project, Enemy of Rome. Enemy of Rome. Now that’s a concept we can get behind. How did it all begin? I can try to make it short, but it might be hard (laughing), how it started… well as a actor here in Quebec, I can say that we do not have any productions of this type, it is very rare that we can have the chance of playing something like this, even harder when you are not a « known actor » Then, there is the other fact, when we have big American productions, like 300 and Immortal etc. they look always for tall and very built people, 6’ and […]

Abigail Godsell

After a long time -millennia in fact- I have finally managed to sit down with, and chat to, South African fiction writer, Abigail Godsell. So give us a little of your writing background. I’ve been writing for publication for a while now. I first started out in Something Wicked Magazine, run by Joe Vaz and Vianne Venter. They were willing to beat a high-schooler’s horror prose into something readable and launch a career by treating her like a professional to boot. I still don’t think anyone has put into words how much the SA spec-fic scene owes these two people and the magazines, books and website they produced. In 2012 I was lucky enough to be taught by renowned authors […]

Elvis Einstein

We recently chatted to the legendary Elvis Einstein. What’s the history of Elvis Einstein?  I first came into existence on the seventy fifth layer of the Abyss, but somewhere around twenty years ago, I escaped that realm of shadow into this dimension, and attached myself to a young human by the name of Randy. I was drawn to his feelings of anger and outrage, and we have had a symbiotic relationship ever since What genre of music do you consider Elvis Einstein to be? Most would consider my particular brand of musical expression as somewhere between Gothic Rock, and Industrial… But I am sure there are people who know their sub-genres better than I… There are hundreds these days after […]
