Striker (Band Interview)

 

 Today we speak to Tim from Striker. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We are a bunch of Party Instigators from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. We shred the pants off of anyone who comes and sees us live and we’ve been kicking ass and taking names since about 2007! What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur) A little bit of both I suppose! Some of us have had classical training on our instruments, but we’ve all taken band class, piano lessons, etc when we were growing up. Mostly self taught for the most part though! So what can you tell us about your latest album? (Inspiration. Sound. Style.) It’s a mix of 80s hair metal and thrash/power/speed […]

Ominous Eclipse (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Graham from Ominous Eclipse. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? My fellow bandmate Ryan Clements and I were in a previous band together in highschool. After the band dispersed we decided to continue playing music together. I wrote songs and he found us James Close and Andrew Poskus completing the line up of our new group. Since then we have worked our way into the local scene starting with small bar shows and moving up to opening for respectably well known metal bands such as The Agonist, Revocation and Skeletonwitch to name a few. We released our first album “End Of Days” in 2015 and even snagged a guitar endorsement with the […]

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?

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

An Open Window

Today we speak to Patrick Ryder about his new film, ‘An Open Window.’ So what inspired you to create a An Open Window? Growing up I was hugely influenced by the X files, it was a show which really changed my outlook on television and production. I have made films for several years but I thought it would be really fun to make a short in the same vein as The X Files or those old classic Hammer horror films. What was the production like? It was wonderful. We had a set amount if days to shoot so it was very much about shooting in sections to make sure we had everything we needed. All the actors, especially Ais De’ath […]
