This is an interview with the Canadian hardrock act Sarasin A.D. The band isn’t so well known outside the borders of North America and Canada so here is a little teaser about the band. The drummer Roger Banks had the courtesy to answer my questions. Enjoy!

Gary Holt of Exodus

Guitarist Gary Holt

 

Interview by Jerry Hamm, “The Metal Master”

 

Exodus has been thrashing as long as there has been the term “Thrash”.  From there legendary underground 1982 demo, which is their only studio work that has Kirk Hammett on guitar, to their beyond classic debut BONDED BY BLOOD their only studio record with the late great Paul Baloff, and of course all the great years with Zetro behind the mic.  Now, Rob Dukes has handled the vocals for the last 3 CD’s, including their latest, a rerecording of Bonded, titled LET THERE BE BLOOD.  But the one constant in the band has always been guitarist and leader Gary Holt.  Gary has hung in there, from members coming and going, tragic death, metal being in, out, than in, and never once has the band ever “sold out” to get their message out.  All the bands in the “big 4” deserve to be there, but any true fan knows that Exodus has a place right along side Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax in the “big 5” of thrash.  The talk I had with Gary was just that, a talk.  He was totally cool, and had lots to say.

TYRANTS BLOOD Brian Langley (ex-Infernäl Mäjesty)

November 14th, 2008

Brian Langley (ex-Infernäl Mäjesty) of Tyrants Blood

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen 

Times change, and the present times are full of strange surprises indeed. Mentioning the Canadian thrash legends Infernäl Mäjesty, probably not many of us expected this to happen in the first place, but Brian Langley, who replaced longtime Infernäl Mäjesty vocalist Chris Bailey in 2005, is out of Infernäl Mäjesty. He joined a Vancouver-based black thrash/death metal band on very short notice as their new vocalist, being without a band no longer than a day after leaving the Infernäl camp.

Brian spoke in more detail to Metal-Rules.com about this transition from one of the most legendary Canadian thrash bands Infernäl Mäjesty to Tyrants Blood; this relatively new vicious force in the vast Canadian underground scene, which has undoubtedly started to gain momentum in their career. So, read and learn more about Tyrants Blood!

EVINCE – New Brutal Force In Thrash

November 13th, 2008
by Metal Rules

Evince- logo.jpg

Vocalist Mario Frasca

Guitarist Jani Hentila

Interview by Luxi Lahtinen

 

This Myspace thing is actually pretty cool. You can form bands there just like that. Well, that´s almost exactly how this 1/4 American and 3/4 Finnish, brutal thrash act was kicked off – and more than a year later, Evince has recorded their yet-unreleased debut full-length album, titled ABANDON BELIEF.

Mario Frasca (ex-/SpeedKill/Hate, ex-Anger on Anger, ex-G/Z/R) and Jani Hentila (Fierce) were keen enough to shed more light on their new incarnation in brutal thrash, Evince, which undoubtedly is ready and armed to conquer its way through to every thrasher´s heart. ABANDON BELIEF, with its 11 songs on it, doesn´t leave any open questions whether they can crush hearts or not.

Evince doesn´t make any compromises either. First they ruthlessly kill you – and then they ask all the necessary questions from you. Got it?

However, this time both Mario and Jani just abided by answering to my polite and sensitive questions… Lucky me!

Universum – Michael Soininen

November 6th, 2008
by EvilG

Universum

Universum

Interviewed by Simon Lukic

Universum is an Australian melodic death metal band with huge potential. Their debut album LETO DESTINATUS has only just been released and if you haven’t yet read my review, it is a stunning album that Soilwork and Scar Symmetry fans should look into. Those who enjoy In flames will be floored as well, but these comparisons are only a guide because Universum is their own band and one listen to LETO DESTINATUS proves this. I got in touch with guitarist Michael Soininen and here is what we discussed.

Wolbers-Fear_Factory_-_SMALL2.jpg

I recently was presented with the opportunity to chat over the phone with Christian Olde Wolbers, who rose to fame as the bassist turned axe slinger for Fear Factory. Christian, ever the multi-faceted musician was kind enough to talk shop well over a half hour with me, covering everything from Fear Factory’s current hiatus, to his new band Arkaea, the COW Archetype Randall Half Stack, his studio work and much more. In fact he even recalls his early days in the thrash metal scene in his native Antwerp, Belgium and the time he spent playing for both Asphyxia and touring with Cyclone. Special thanks to Andy Caffaro at Forty Three PR for coordinating this special interview.
