I’ve posted a review for The Light Within, the debut album by Surma, a collaboration between Czech vocalist Viktorie Surmová (Bohemian Metal Rhapsody) and Faroese vocalist/guitarist Heri Joensen (Týr). Look for more Surma in an upcoming At Home feature.

The latest At Home interview is with Freddy Lim, not only the frontman for the Taiwanese black metal band Chthonic, but also a twice-elected legislator in parliament. Find out how an extreme metal band inexplicably became the most beloved cultural icons of an entire nation, and how Lim defied nearly all expectations to become one of his country’s most notable politicians.

The first At Home interview of 2021 is with guitarist Sammy Duet of New Orleans’ Goatwhore, who return to the stage tomorrow, Saturday January 9th, for a special livestream concert. We chatted about him embracing social media, marking his first year of sobriety, and how his beliefs “lean more towards the devil worshipping side of things.”

Happy Holidays from Zombitrol! The final At Home interview of 2020 comes from guitarist Topon Das, founder of Ottawa’s Juno-nominated grindcore vets Fuck The Facts. They’ve returned with their first new album in 5 years, and we talk about its long gestation and their new work/life/band balance.
