Oscar Dronjak of HammerFall
Interviewed on Oct. 2, 1998 by EvilG

Hammerfall has become one of my favorite bands over the past year, so the opportunity for a Q-n-A session with guitarist Oscar Dronjak was in a word -  AWESOME! Also, I have nothing but respect for a band that is 100% heavy metal and who are proud of it! Hopefully you’ve heard something from Hammerfall by now, if not then it’s time to do so. Here is the interview, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed doing it!!

Paul Mazurkiewicz of Cannibal Corpse
Added on December 13, 1998
by Davil L. of Music America

A naked woman disemboweling herself, several hangings and various other self inflicted tortures are depicted on the cover of the new CANNIBAL CORPSE CD. Just another page in a macabre book of morbid tales from Florida’s death metal kings? Well, yes. Not much has changed for these guys other than members in their ten year history. They still produce the most intensely violent and visual music known to man.

Paul Mazurkiewicz has been behind the drum kit since the beginning of this grimly grandiose group and spun me tales of the sick and twisted for about a half hour recently. Read on if you dare!

Iced Earth – Interview With Jon Schaffer
Interviewed on Dec. 5, 1998 by EvilG

Iced Earth, a band that has been around for nearly 10 years yet still hasn’t made a noticeable impact in the USA. Why have they been the underdogs? I’ll tell you why, they have never sold out nor changed their sound to accommodate the flavor of the week. This is no bubble gum band and Jon makes no bones about it, Iced Earth are a heavy metal band.

UNLEASHED POWER – Ken Jacobsen

August 21st, 2005

Ken Jacobsen of Unleashed Power
Reviewed / Interviewed August 13, 1997 by EvilG


Unleashed Power are an aggressive power metal band based out of New York. U.P. are not at all new to the metal scene. Below is a summary of their background from their bio.

Unleashed Power, now U.P., had it’s origin way back in the mid-eighties where the Danish band, Avalon, recorded an LP called “Unleashed Power”, produced by Metallica renowned producer, Flemming Rasmussen. Guitarist, Ken Jacobsen and vocalist, John Mathias were the corner stones of that band. Avalon dissolved with the forming of Unleashed Power in 1989 when Ken Jacobsen and Ed Owen (Drums) joined together. The band now had it’s foundation in New York and was on it’s way to record the first demo “Blindfolded” in 1991, followed by the critically acclaimed demo “Quintet of Spheres” in 1992. Members changed when singer, Joe Karavis, decided to part ways due to musical differences after the demo recordings in 1992. However, the decision to proceed with the full length album “Quintet of Spheres” had already been made, so John Mathias received the call to fill the vocalist position anew. The now transatlantic lineup had a massively impressive response to their 1993/94 debut album “Quintet of Spheres”. After a string of shows in the northeast of the United States, tragedy struck in the summer of 1994 with the untimely death of bassist, John Lievano. Ed Owen’s disillusionment with the destitute prospect of finding a replacement and recording another album sans label, culminated with his departure. Enter J?rg Michael, renowned German drummer, whose credentials include: Mekong Delta, Stratovarious and Rage. Bassist, Tony Spagone joined for the album to fill the vacant position and last, but definitely not least, vocalist, Brian T. Chaffee received the call, as he and U.P. exchanged demos awhile ago. John Mathias had left the band in 1995 feeling unable to do justice to the new direction the group had undertaken, which requires a heavier approach.

Paul Fenner of Fe26
Interviewed Wed. July 16 1997 By EvilG

Fe26 is a band on the rise. The new CD “A Worldly Story” is now out and the band are currently doing intensive touring to support this killer CD.

I was offered the opportunity to interview the vocalist Paul Fenner and of course I jumped at the chance. Fenner is one of the most original and versatile vocalists in metal today. Just check out their song “10 Degrees And Counting” to hear how he switches from the clean vocal style to a death growl. Now onto the good stuff…the questions!!

James Murphy
Interviewed in Jan. 1997 by EvilG

 

Testament update January 1997:
The news about Testament seems to be changing quickly. First the band broke up. James Murphy went off to release his new CD “Convergences” and Chuck Billy and Eric Peterson stuck it out. They went by the name ”Dog Faced Gods” and on drums was former Machine Head member Chris Kontos. Chris has since left and Chuck and Eric have decided to stick with the Testament name. Lets hope they get a band together SOON and continue in the same vein as LOW.

Well here some new info on what James Murphy has been up to and the news from the Testament camp.
