I’ve just posted my latest interview with guitarist Kaoru of the Japanese art rock legends Dir En Grey. Check out the Interviews section for our chat (through a translator) about their new album, bringing back the visual aspect of the band, and his continued outspokenness about the continuing effects of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster of 2011.

Norway’s Enslaved are about to return to Canada on their current North American tour with Between the Buried and Me. As such I am happy to debut my latest interview with Ivar and Grutle from the band where we talk about their blackened prog masterpiece In Times, the role of Norse culture in their music, and how they’re now treated a lot better at home than they were in the nineties. Watch the video now in the Interviews section, and catch them in Toronto on December 10th and Ottawa on December 11th.
