The true veterans of US death metal, Immolation, landed their troops on European territory during March-April 2008 on the "Shadows of the Emissaries Curse" tour – also bringing along fellow country mates Goatwhore, Israeli infamous black/deathsters Melechesh and Greek´s Sickening Horror, whose technical and tricky death metal seemed to make a huge impression on many fans who wanted to witness some quality death metal on that particular night of April 3rd 2008 in Helsinki.
Immolation´s 7th album, SHADOWS IN THE LIGHT, has given the Immolation camp more and more death metal muscle, making Immolation one of the last true torch bearers for the old school death metal. If you are yet to hear the album, do yourself a favor and get your hands on it immediately, ok?
I met a smiling and polite Immolation frontman Ross Dolan at Nosturi, Helsinki right after the band had just finished their soundcheck. We sat down, and I let my tape recorder roll during this nice conversation with Ross about the tour, Immolation albums, the friggin´ good old times and so on… ;o)
