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.

Alan Cross’ A Journal of Musical Things has just published my new interview with the lovely Simone Denny. She’s best known for her success as the vocalist for Canadian techno superstars Love Inc, and for being the voice of the theme for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. She’s just released her new album in collaboration with former Monster Voodoo Machine frontman Adam Sewell, The Stereo Dynamite Sessions Vol. 1, and it’s unlike anything she’s released before. Have a listen to our chat in the Interviews section.

I’ve just posted a new interview with vocalist Travis Ryan of San Diego death metallers Cattle Decapitation for Alan Cross’ A Journal of Musical Things. They’ve been labeled a vegan/vegetarian band so we chat about their supposed political activism as well as the evolution of their avant-garde sound. You can check it out in the Interviews section.

Zombitrol Productions presents the Toronto return of Fuck The Facts promoting their latest album Desire Will Rot. Through numerous releases and hard gigging the Ottawa band has become one of the most respected Canadian acts in the international metal underground, with notable performances at Maryland Deathfest and Obscene Extreme Montreal. They were also nominated for a Juno in 2012 and were featured on the cover of Exclaim! magazine in 2008.
