My interview with Jasyn Bangert of horror-industrial act God Module is now available in the Interviews section. The band was completely robbed at the beginning of their tour only to be saved by an ultra-successful crowdfunding campaign. We also talked about their sound and why they seem to only play their more danceable tracks live.

At the end of the summer Riot Fest returned to Toronto’s Downsview Park bigger and better than ever with a more diverse lineup and a ton of entertainment. My first of two interviews from the Fest is with Toronto rapper Jazz Cartier who turned in a ferocious thirty minute set after flying across the country to be there. We talked about his album Marauding in Paradise and why his unique style stands apart from other Canadians. Watch it in the Interviews section.

I’m proud to have just posted my new candid interview with heavy metal icon and former Sepultura frontman Max Cavalera. We chatted about the new Soulfly album Archangel and why he’s not keen on being credited for having an influence on nineties nu-metal. Plus we discussed why he thinks Cavalera Conspiracy, the band he formed with his brother and fellow ex-Sep member Igor, better represents the original spirit of Sepultura than their old band’s current lineup. Have a listen in the Interviews section.
