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.

In the latest Zombitrol At Home interview, guitarist Ivar Bjørnson of Norway’s award-winning progressive black metal legends Enslaved talks about their new concept album Utgard, relating to Norse mythology, and Naziism in the black metal scene. Read it here.

The latest Zombitrol At Home interview is with one of my favourite people in Canadian music, iconic singer Simone Denny. She’s the former singer of 90s house music legends Love Inc, and the voice of the original theme for Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (aka the song from the crab people South Park episode). More recently she created an album of alternative R&B with former Monster Voodoo Machine frontman Adam Sewell, and Love Inc’s “You’re A Superstar” was featured in the first season finale of Canada’s Drag Race. We spoke about her new Instagram Live series, her experience with racial injustice, and her constant hustle.
