Interview by Caitlin Smith

Nautical themed doom giants Ahab may be making a name for themselves on the doom scene, and have been enjoying unparalleled success since their latest full-length masterpiece ‘The Giant’ hit the shelves in 2012. Returning this year for Damnation Festival, it is only the 2nd time these doom titans have set foot on UK soil. Sitting down the bassist Christian Hector at Damnation, we chat about their recent venture into charity work, the new album and their love of good literature.

A Forest of Stars Interview with Curse, TS

Kettleburner and the Gentleman

1st November 2014

Interview by Caitlin Smith

A Forests of Stars may have been simmering below the surface of the British black metal scene now with their unusual mix of black metal and progressive, all brought together by the downright strangest of minds, but it wasn’t till the release of their latest record A Shadowplay for Yesterdays back in 2012 that this band really made some serious headway out of the underground. Arriving suited and booted in their finery and bringing with them a healthy dose of dark humour, we sit down with Curse, The Gentleman and Mr TS Kettleburner to get to grips on what really makes this group of time travelling musicians tick.

Whether you know the name for the urban street down in LA, or the tumulus rock back that came swaggering out of the late 80s, everyone has heard the name somewhere. While both may be still ageing thoroughly disgracefully, there’s something about them both that remains timeless.

Skid Row

For a band with such a long history that have retained strong popularity 30 years on, it seems strange that Skid Row would be booked to play a venue as small as the London Underworld that evening.

Germany has long been known for its thriving metal scene and enthusiastic crowds. So when German metallers, Sodom, arrived back in the UK, the usually tame crowd were going to be shown what a metal gig is all about.
