SIN MG THE GRINDER INTERVIEW

1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it? Sin MG – Our name was originally Sin the Moon God back in the early 2000’s. We shortened it to Sin MG when we got the project back together after a several year hiatus. Sin the Moog God was an ancient Sumerian god and a play off of my last name, Sinclair.

What is your name and what do you do for the band? Scott Sinclair I am the lead singer, rhythm guitar player and co-writer of our music.


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound. 

We are based out of the Southside of Chicago, where people are very real and passionate. You always no where you stand. Our music definitely takes on these characteristics. The sounds is driving, groove oriented and passionate. Our Lyrics are all meaningful and usually inspired by current events.


3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people? This artist doesn’t influence our sound, but as a musician there are aspects Bon Jovi’s formula that have unconsciously seeped into ours. We also have some hip hop influences on top of some of the usual suspects.
  



4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by? We are endorsed by Nacimiento Tequila. We would love to be endorsed by Shure, ESP, Ernie Ball, DW, Fractal, Line 6 and Remo.


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now? To make a good living in the music industry. We have a lot of work to do, but a path forward is clearer now. During our career the industry has completely changed. It has taken a while to redirect our efforts and come to grips with many long-standing norms that don’t exist any longer.


 
6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time? One of our creative ideas is to reach more people by doing more Facebook live (YouTube & Instagram) concert events at our rehearsal space. We have a multi-camera setup with studio quality sounds piping through to our live platforms. The benefit is that we can play for more people in a shorter, more frequent format, while being efficient with our time and generating tons of content.


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live? Lose ALL respect!


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know? We are an Alternative Metal type of band. Heavy grooving guitars, over-played drums, meaningful lyrics and mostly clean vocals.


9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular? We are on the talented end of the spectrum, although we aren’t stacked with virtuosos. Our live performance is well rehearsed. We believe in delivering a great show, both visually and audibly.

Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent? I want people to get something from the experience of listening to our music and watching our live shows. I want to give them chills! That doesn’t take musician talent to pull that off. It’s more about the song and the performance. Again, while we are talented, we are focused on our audience and not showing off with some ridiculous solo that 90% of the audience doesn’t understand. We are songwriters first.


  
10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? We make many attempts to teach our audience how to interact with our show. Audience participation is an ongoing goal as we try to elevate our career. We also deploy vertical smoke visuals, 808’s and backing tracks that are perfectly sync’d with our set. We script our show and try to keep things moving. We try very hard to make tuning and guitar changes silent and seamless.




11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new? We have released two albums, Deception & Fear. We are working on our third album now. The material has all been written (demo’s available). We are now looking for a good studio to capture it the right way.


12. If you have videos where can we see them? YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/sinmg13
Here’s our newest music video – Light: https://youtu.be/lD1T5PFuY2E 



13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free? It’s good to be everywhere because all potential audiences have their preferred platform and it’s up to us to find them, not the other way around. Everyone IS giving everything away these days. Licensing, Merch and VIP packages are the current way to make money in music as a performer.




14.Best moment of your career so far? 


It will happen on August 27th this month. We are supporting the band Red at a great local venue called The Forge. Red is one of my favorite bands. It will be cool to share the stage with them.


  

15.Your message to the fans? The amount of work and money that goes into operating a band these days is tremendous. When you run across an unsigned band that moves you, support them by buying a t-shirt, following them on social and/or telling a friend. Don’t let all the noise out there scare you away from discovering and supporting new music. A lot of bands are working very hard against all odds. Positive feedback is an amazing gift for people who are making major sacrifices to turn silence into sound.


Bonus Question who do you bring back


Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy

Chris Cornell

ADDISONS WAY JOIN THE BREW CRUE AND DROP ORIGIN ON THE WORLD

1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it? What is your name and what do you do for the band? 

My name is Kahler Legacy, and I am the frontman (vocals & guitar), studio engineer and designer for the band. After going through a few name changes to avoid sharing a name with other bands, we compiled a list of names that came from multiple sources (books, TV show episodes, poetry, street names and more). We don't exactly recall where “Addisons Way" was derived from, but we do know it hadn't been used anywhere else, and all domain names were available, so we put it to a vote and have been known as Addisons Way ever since. 


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound. 


We are currently located in Fredericton NB, Canada. Our music isn’t so much influenced by where we live as it is influenced by our collective musical backgrounds. 


3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people? 


The four of us have such a broad range of musical influences that it would be difficult to pinpoint specifics, but we do all greatly appreciate the music from Periphery, Linkin Park, Protest the Hero, Alter Bridge, Tremonti, Def Leppard, and more. 


4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by? 


I can confidentially say that both myself and James (guitar) would absolutely love an endorsement from Paul Reed Smith, however as a band we would be content with endorsements from any company that we can stand behind who supports artists and makes great products! 


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now? 


 


This band started quite some time ago as an idea – to create heavier rock music with a wall of vocal harmonies similar to Def Leppard. Songs that could be heard on the radio, without sacrificing our sound or over producing simply to fit in. 

6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time? We are always striving to create music that can be enjoyed by a vast range of people, regardless of preferences. While keeping a certain vibe to our music, we also try to keep up with the current trends and incorporate elements that give us that new, but classic sound. 


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live? 


We absolutely understand how elements in a recording can often just not be reproduced live. We record our own music, and unless we run backing tracks, it would be difficult to reproduce the exact sound. However, the core of a band performing well live and being entertaining is just as important, if not more important than simply providing good recordings. We spend half our band time in the studio, and the other half rehearsing our material, so I believe we have a good balance. That being said, we wouldn’t lose respect for a band per say, but we do believe that a band who works hard and performs well should not sound terrible live. 


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know? 


I would say that we are, at our core, a Rock band that leans heavily toward metal elements. 


9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular? Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favour with talent? 


I think most people, regardless of profession, would love the concept of fame, no matter where it came from, and if the opportunity presented itself, we would be hard-pressed to say no. However, we absolutely would prefer to be known or favoured because of our talent, our songs, and how they speak to each individual listener. 


 

10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? 

One of the things we pride ourselves in, is being as mobile and entertaining on stage as we can. We do have a fair bit of 4-part harmonies that keep us glued to the microphones, however any moment we get, you can expect to see us full of energy and making use of every inch of the stage, while performing our material to the best of our abilities. 


11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new? 


Currently, we only have the one release “Origin,” however, we are hard at work in the studio prepping our next track for release in the coming months. 


12. If you have videos where can we see them? 


We don’t currently have any videos available. 


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free? 


We believe the more platforms your music is available on, the better. It gives you the chance to reach people who may not use one or two of the platforms your tracks are on. 


14.Best moment of your career so far? 


We have had some great moments collectively and as individuals in other bands, however we feel like the best moment of our career has yet to come, so we are anxiously awaiting the day that happens! 


15.Your message to the fans?

 

Don’t ever give up. This industry (and many others) may be a tough one to crack, and some days it may feel like the odds are against you, but don’t ever let that stop you from working hard and doing everything you can to chase your dreams.
Bonus Question who do you bring back: Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy
This question is much too tough for us to decide on as a band, as we have had so many influences between us. If we could jump off the list however, I believe the whole band would agree on bringing back Chester Bennington or Chris Cornell.

Finally starting to get small amount of FM play and some interest in other places. Playing around the state of texas and starting to play in neighboring states.

7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live? 


Fuck That. We are bringing the pain live and on our record. Thats what makes us real as it gets. If its on the CD you better pull it off.


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know?


 Metal / Hard Rock




9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular?
Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent? 


We are all extremely talented and take our music very seriously. I also like to chop stuff up with a chainsaw and smash it because i believe that go’s hand in hand with metal. We put on a show and put all our talents together. On the other end of that.. I don't really care how we make it but we want to make a living doing this. We def don't want to be some circus sideshow but... I mean Red Hot Chilli Peppers put socks on their dicks to make it. And now their in the rock n roll hall of fame… not saying that's what I want to do but no one gave a shit about fleas abilities until they became better known.




10.Tell us what to expect from you live.


Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember? INTENSITY at its peak. Very energetic hard hitting show every second your in the room. No one will forget TEXAS 223 if you see us live and we strive to make that happen every time we play. From screaming in your face to killer solos from chad to machine gun double bass from Benjamin and Kolton pulling us all together with bass. We are a sonic force that hits hard and represents metal. Just to top it off we pull out a chainsaw at the end of the show and chop up some stuff and smash it. People always love that shit :)


11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new?


We have released five singles and our self titled debut album called TEXAS 223. We are always writing new material. No set release or record dates.




12. If you have videos where can we see them?
 

Youtube, our website, Facebook


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free?


Yes i think social media and music sites like those are very important to get out there. And. Yes everyone wants everything free. It pisses me the fuck off. They want the music free. They want us to play for free. Its bullshit. I guess its just the position the industry is in and also us as a band. It sucks. Period. We also still love to do it and we are here to weather the storm. We want to make it as a band and that means paying the bills to.


14.Best moment of your career so far?


There are many great moments from opening up for some of my favorite national acts like Avatar and Saving Abel and Dark Tranquility to getting airplay for the first time on FM in my hometown.


15.Your message to the fans?
 

We love our fans.
Thank You so much for the continued support. Stay Metal and Come see us when you get a chance!

TEXAS 223 BREWS METAL COFFEE


Texas 223 is from Lubbock, TX. and was formed in 2015 by founding members:

Brittan Church (Lead Vocals / Guitar) and Chad Russell (Lead Guitar, Vocals/Screams).

Their vision for Texas 223 was established once the two began writing and recording music in 2016. Drummer Benjamin Villalobos, and bassist Kilton Westbrook joined after that.

In 2017, Chad and Brittan teamed up with Grammy Award winning producer/engineer, Chuck Alkazian, to produce their self-titled debut record. Texas 223 is influenced by all things metal, which has lent itself to their heavy riffs, bringing a hard- hitting sonic force to their audience.

Brittan’s no bullshit approach to lyrics and singing combined with Chad’s epic guitar solos, shows how metal is done the Texas way!

Christophe interview

1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it?
What is your name and what do you do for the band?

 My name is Christophe Murdock. I am a singer/songwriter. I mostly perform solo, but also occasionally as a duo or band. Usually under my own name or when a band name it's “Christophe and the” so people still know it's me. (Example, for the First Jason concert I had a punk band back me up and we were ”Christophe and the Kids From Crystal Lake”)


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound.

 I am based out of Oklahoma. I'm not sure how to describe the scene... I am kind of all over. At the metal shows, punk shows, country shows... just any live music. I don't feel my location infuences my sound.


3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people?

 I pull my influences from all over. Anything and everything I hear can become an influence. Metal, Punk, Pop, Country, Jazz, the list goes on. I guess one of my biggest influences was my cousin Merle Kilgore, a songwriter and ex-performer that was still in the business. While growing up he really encouraged me in all that I did. I was mostly playing bass in punk and metal bands at the time and he would talk to me and build me up. Growing up his sound also became an influence on my style.


4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by?

 I am endorsed with Coffin Case and Dean Markley Strings. I would like to also be endorsed by Ibanez, Peavey, Fright-Rags and Jim Beam.


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now?


 My ultimate goal was never to be a “Rock Star”, I just wanted to make a living and travel. I am not quite where I want to be, but definitely am on my way. I am at the point where music is my main focus, while working at clubs on the side. I hope to increase the amount of touring I do in the coming year.


6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time?

 

To be honest I am kind of a dinosaur when it comes to this. I am the guy that collects vinyl and VHS. So, I tend to focus on my phyical product more so than my digital. I know there are other collector's out there who still want things to hold in their hand. I try to give my physical releases something unique. For digital, I just let my music speak for itself and try my best to push it and share the word.


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live?

 I prefer the bands that sound different live. If they sound just like the CD I get bored.


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know?

 Yes. Haha. I have influences from all. I guess my main biggest influences are a mix of Punk and Country. The local press took to calling what I do “Red Dirt Macabre”.


9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular?
Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent?

 I believe I have talent and write good songs. Although, I do see that how good your songs are does not always decide whether your band is popular or not. I would accept  fame however it comes and work with it. You can try to stear your own path, but can't always choose what is thrown at you. I've learned to make do with what comes my way and will continue to do so.


10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember?

 I just try to offer something real. Whether I'm playing something deep or just some of my “fun” songs I put myself into it. As I often play solo, I don't always have someone to play off of. So, I make it real. I put myself into what I'm performing. I think that goes a long way. I won't always win over the whole crowd, but I always win over someone in the crowd.




11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new?

 I've had a ton of releases in the past. I keep in print my 'Crossroads' EP from 2010 and my'MMXIII' EP from 2013 as well as my new single 'Pray to the Saw' that was just released. I have a Nine Inch Nails cover I recorded a few years back that may be my next release. I plan on putting it out as digital and a limited lathe cut. Probably sometime next year as I am still focusing on 'Pray to the Saw' at the moment.


12. If you have videos where can we see them?

 My videos are on YouTube.


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free?

 
There is an overflow here. I feel like I'm drowning in music and it's hard to find what I want because there is so much to go through, but I still feel it's important to have music at these places because that may be how someone finds it. I haven't quite figured out how to stand out in the digital world, especially when there is so much.


14.Best moment of your career so far?

 For me, it was the film 'Son of the Saw'. All I ever really wanted to do was cameo in horror films and write songs for the soundtracks. So here I got to be the titular star and the song I wrote played over the closing credits. It's the best recording I've done to date. The film looks great. I've been very happy with it.


15.Your message to the fans?

 For just a five dollar love donation, you too can own your own copy of “Pray to the Saw”. Just send your check or money order to me today! Remember to Pray or be Prey!


Bonus Question who do you bring back


Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy

Lemmy. Always Lemmy.

BEHIND THE HORROR SPEAK TO THE GRINDER




1.What is the name of your band and how did you come up with it?
We think some people are born with this natural "appetite" for horror and the macabre. They understand and experience the world under a different perspective because when they look straight where nobody has the guts to look they can see a hidden truth and even beauty behind every tragedy, every cloud has a silver lining and Behind The Horror lies the truth
What is your name and what do you do for the band?


Lucas Alves : Drummer, Manager, Song Writer, Producer , Composer .


Gabriel Alves : Guitar/Vocal, Social Media Manager, Video editing, Graphic Design, Audio Engineer, Producer, Song Writer


2.Tell us where you are based and describe the scene. How do you think where you are located influences your sound.
Behind The Horror is original from the depths of central Brazil in the city of Anápolis on state of Goiás near 100 miles from the capital of the country Brasília. The region is known by the strong farming business and with that, culturally, the biggest pole of the Brazilian country music called Sertanejo. With all of that you might think Metal never could happen there but against all odds the city has one of the oldest and strongest Metal scenes in the country. In the 80's bands like Prostibulus, Urban Cannibals, Light Years, Bullshit made history putting concerts on top of trucks and in public parks making possible for new bands bloom in the area. Behind The Horror made your part when started a festival called Anápolis Metal, getting all of this bands together raising the flag of Metal as a genuine cultural movement, they got government recognize the festival as a Official City Calendar Event, in its 7 Edition already was one of the biggest independent Metal fests in the country.
And now seeking a new chapter in his career Behind The Horror has moved to US and its based in Long Branch in the Jersey shore, close to a lot of places where lots of great bands has passed, and after a couple of shows the band has started to make some friends and connections the contribute with all the know how they have and make their new local scene one of the greatest in the world.
 

3.Who influences your sound that would surprise people?
As brothers we definitely share a lot of tastes and influences, but at the very beginning the first band who really brought us to the Rock world was Nirvana and Charlie Brown Jr., one of the biggest rock bands from Brazil. Although we definitely have very different and weird influences from each other, we've spent a lot of time listening to the classic Heavy Metal but we're very affectionated by early 70, bands such Yes, Janis Joplin, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Hendrix and others definitely contribute to the mix in our sound. The Blues also have a big importance in our guitars, Eric Clapton, Steve Ray Vaughan, BB King and many others have a big part in our music. And of course games , our minds are truly connected with games , specially World of warcraft .


4.Are you endorsed by musical companies , if so who , and if not who would you like to be endorsed by?


No , Tama, Mapex , Dw , Sabian , Meinl, Paiste, Pro Mark , Vic Firth, Evans , Remo
Schecter, Ibanez, Positive Grid(Bias Fx) Onel.
But I mean, who else got us a good deal to work with we're in.


5.When you started what was your ultimate goal? And how close to the goal are you now?


The ultimate goal is to have a stadium audience singing our songs with us, and make a living from our musical career. Considering our current audience we can we are very far from our biggest goal, although we know it's not a race it's a marathon, and every day we've been clearing the path to get there.


6.In today's digital environment it takes creative strategy to keep things moving. What creative ideas do you have to keep your band relevant over time?


We are in constant contact with our fans, and interacting as much as possible with everyone sharing ideas and getting advice. What we've been doing a lot is seek for knowledge, getting some courses attending webinars, to more than everything add value to our content to make a meaningful deliver to our audience.


7.We've all seen a terrible live band that is awesome on CD. Is that cool with you or do you lose respect for bands that cannot pull it off live?


It’s cool to listen at home, but it won’t bring people to a concert more than once I believe, unless their fans are obsessed with the artists personas. Every band has your own style to make your way to the top, if a band can get there with this kind of performance, good for them. We respect all the roads.


8.Tell us your “core” are you Metal , Rock , Punk , Pop etc because people just have to categorize these days you know?


Metal, Metal, Metal "we need metal in our lives just like an eagle needs to fly " Manowar.


  9.This is a tough question but a very real reality, Is your band actually talented or just popular?


  We dont believe in talent, everything we are comes from study and hard work, but popular is something we are definitely NOT… YET.
Many bands make it with a cliche or publicity stunts etc. Would you accept fame even if it was just because of being the “ in” thing or is it actually important to you that you gain favor with talent?
Fame is a tool , but I would not change the way we play or write or songs to achieve fame , cause that would just stop making sense , otherwise we would not be playing metal.Unless you are a professional musician that is up to play whatever it needs to make money . Nothing wrong with too . We would do it . But just as musicians. But not with our band, that, NEVER.


10.Tell us what to expect from you live. Nothing is more boring than watching bands stare at the floor and bob their heads to music nobody but the band knows. What can your band offer in a live setting that people will remember?



We start our concert with intro, which is  a message from, Charlie Chaplin - Final Speech from The Great Dictator ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7GY1Xg6X20 ), everyone who listen to that part of the speech get inspired right way man, with back ground effects. That calls everyone attention at first , like it was a big band on stage about to start playing , then we start playing right after the Intro , we play 3 songs non stop , and people go crazy with it , every time they comment that is insane and they react very well about it. After the three songs we introduce ourselves and play 2 more nonstop with drum solos during the songs and people go crazy with it too every time they scream when the drummer solo comes out of nowhere and we make a grand finale improvising and shredding . 

11. What releases have you put out , When will we see something new?


 We got an EP with 4 tracks called "...And The Horror Begins"
And we just finished our upcoming album and now we're planning to release some singles before the full album launch for the next year.


12. If you have videos where can we see them?


https://www.youtube.com/BehindTheHorror


13.Everybody has Bandcamp , ReverbNation , Soundcloud , etc
Why do you think this is so important? Doesn't it seem like everyone is giving everything out for free?


The market changed over the years , every artist wants attention , and with so many vehicles of media out there , I believe that’s the way they share it for free, but it depends on your strategy, you need to build a relationship with your audience, they need to be seen  as more than just fans or clients so sure they can listen to your music for free but this has to be  only the beginning of a great journey you'll have together.


14.Best moment of your career so far?


Our first USA tour , I don’t know if we can call it a tour , but it was the first time that we had an agenda for shows, in two months we played 4 concerts , which was our first experience with the USA metal scene , making contacts meeting nice people and making fans . best time so far!!!


15.Your message to the fans?


We are here to play metal and share our view of the world with you, make you bang your heads wherever we go and get that chill in your skin every time you listen to our songs.
Stay true, keep Metal!!!


Bonus Question who do you bring back


Dime , Cliff , Dio , Lemmy , Randy
Wow, not fair man , i don’t know , randy maybe to have to help ozzy maybe come back to road a make his final tour hehehe. Or Dio to come back and scare people after during the hologram tour hahah “ I am back “
ps. can we add Chuck Schuldiner?

BORKNAGAR release first single “The Fire That Burns”


BORKNAGAR release first single “The Fire That Burns” taken from new album
'True North'

Norway’s avantgarde Black Metal pioneers and innovators BORKNAGAR arise at their most spirited and resplendent on their 11th studio album, “True North”, which is going to be out on September 27th, 2019. Today BORKNAGAR release the single “The Fire That Burns” as a first impression from the upcoming album.

Øystein G. Brun comments: “Finally, the very first single from our upcoming album “True North” is unleashed upon the world, entitled “The Fire that Burns”. On the verge of releasing our 11th album, we’re naturally bound to reflect some about our lengthy past, all the music we have created and all the fights we have fought. In the name of music. Still we are here after 25+ years, stand firm on our musical visions and ready to boot up for yet another musical journey - wherever that may lead in this vast and wondrous world. So when deciding the first song to be released, “The Fire That Burns” was an easy pick. Not because the song represents “True North” as a whole, neither because of the song represents some sort of musical peak. “True North” is way too diverse for such a pick and please concept. But rather it was chosen because of the nature of the song. Musically it’s true towards the musical heritage of BORKNAGAR, and last but not least, the song deals with “The Fire That Burns”. Forever. The very spark that makes life a greater probability than death. Enjoy and rock on!”

US Thrash metal Project PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE Join Sliptrick

US Thrash metal Project PROPHETS OF THE APOCALYPSE Join Sliptrick
Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records this week:

Prophets Of The Apocalypse (US) Thrash Metal | Speed Metal | Death Metal | Blackened Death | War Metal

Prophets Of The Apocalypse create thrash metal in its rawest and most unpolished form, narrating all the brutality and bloodiness of the war. Tales of epic battles, featuring the vehement vocal approach of front man Pete Serro (ex-Strychnine) blurs the borders between thrash and blackened death metal, while Pete’s raw, yet deliberate guitar riffing and solos will ravage your soul.

Hailing from the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee, Prophets Of The Apocalypse are obsessed with launching a thrash metal assault worldwide! Their attack began in late 2017 by writing the blasting Step Into Your Mind, while in the studio working on another project. In June of 2018, Prophets Of The Apocalypse unleashed their debut album EP entitled War Metal. The first single, Battle Eyes, set the tone for the invasion, and was well received in the realms of metal.

The band features an infernal spectrum of blackened death & speed metal conjuring a diabolical, forceful sound, ripe with the smell of death. Thunderous impending doom spawned by the bombing of furious double-bass drumming, haunting vocals, and ferocious guitars, engulfs your senses. Aficionados of Speed Metal and old school Thrash will lust for more battle hymns from Prophets Of The Apocalypse. Their sound has been compared to bands such as Kreator, Destruction, Possessed, Abbath, Sodom, Obituary, Death, Testament, Nervosa, and Coroner.

Prophets Of The Apocalypse is:
Pete Serro – Vocals/Guitar/Bass/Drum Programming
