Lizzy Borden carved his name to metal world in the 80’s with the horror looking visual stage show as well as look. All in all four full lengths came out of Lizzy’s horror dungeon during the 80’s, until he kind of vanished from the map without leaving many traces in the 90’s. Even though the 90’s was quite a silent period for Lizzy, he worked on his side project band Starwood. In 2000 the brand new album DEAL WITH THE DEVIL came out, but once again it took for about seven years to get the excellent APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH out. Lizzy and his horror masked crew arrived at Swedenrock. Therefore we had an excellent opportunity of questioning about his new album and the past and the present and the future. This interview was done at Swedenrock in the beginning of June, but it is timeless and extremely detailed.
