Interviewing Matti Kärki from Dismember was a dream come true, so read our chat below and let's hope the new album is ready soon. In the meantime, listen to their previous records and try to get a copy of the incredibly awesome "Historia Mortis" box set as I think it's a must have for any Dismember fan!!!

New interview added 1.03.2024:
Kaivs is a very young but promising death metal band from Italy. They released their debut EP last year and new songs are already in full swing. My questions were answered by Max Foam (vocals) and Tiziano Mortician (guitar).

New interview added 28.01.2024:
Brodequin is clearly one of the most brutal death metal bands out there, and the unbridled trio will soon return with a new album. So I asked Jamie Bailey (bass/vocals) to shed some light on the subject. Now I suggest you scroll down and read the final result!

Time is a thing we must accept.
The unexpected I sometimes fear.
Just when I feel there's no
excuse for what happens,
things fall into place.
I know there is no way to
avoid the pain that we must
go through, to find the other
half that is true.
Destiny is what we all seek.
Destiny was waiting for you and me.
I believe behind confusion,
awaits the truth for us.
Past the obstacles we face.
I value our life and trust.
Years of questioning why
things happen the way they do in life.
Wishing that I could turn back
time, so we could join our souls.
