Quo Vadis is the best prog/death metal band I’ve heard since Into Eternity. Both are Canadian bands, but Quo Vadis comes from the burgeoning Quebec metal scene where a long list of extreme metal bands has emerged. For many it all began with VoiVod in the 80’s to newer bands like Cryptopsy, Kataklysm, Gorguts, Martyr, Oblivion, etc… After I heard the new Quo Vadis album DEFIANT IMAGINATION, I was instantly hooked. The album is miles ahead of everything they’ve done prior to this release. If you are into progressive death metal and bands like Death, you should already know who these guys are. I was given the opportunity to interview guitarist Bart Frydrychowicz and drumgod Yanic Bercier of Quo Vadis. The lengthy (50+min) interview covered things like the new album and why it took a long time coming, the guest appearance of bass legend Steve DiGiorgio on the album, and the band’s determination to get on the road and to make this album the one that really puts them on the international metal map.
