Interview: Atom Smasher

Atom Smasher zählt zu den Bands, die Aidan und ich ohne jegliche Einschränkung großartig und zu 100% Epic Metal Blog-kompatibel finden, nachzulesen auch in meinem Review der Debüt-EP The Age of Ice (2020) sowie auf unseren Newcomer– und EP-Bestenlisten aus dem zurückliegenden Jahr. So war es nur eine Frage der Zeit, bis wir das Duo […]

Interview: Servants to the Tide (Teil I)

Die Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass Servants to the Tide am Jahresende in den Bestenlisten einiger Epic Metal Blog-Autoren weit oben auftauchen, ist sehr groß. Vor diesem Hintergrund liegt es auf der Hand, dass die beiden Chefredakteure Aidan Stein und André Krause mit den deutschen Epic Doom-Senkrechtstartern ein paar Worte wechseln wollten. Corona-proof geschah dies in entspannter Feierabendatmosphäre […]

Interview: Mina Walkure (Kramp)

Fortunately, this is not the first time we had the opportunity to talk to Mina Walkure, vocalist of Spanish heavy metal outfit Kramp (check out «My Top 5» and our Manilla Road interview).

A couple of days ago, I reviewed two songs I got from Aiwass, a very interesting US American one-man project who plays «epic psych-doom».

Interview: Archdruid

When I listened to the first notes of Archdruid’s demo, released a month ago, I instantly knew: I have to ask them for an interview. Fortunately, the five-piece from New Hampshire was available. Enjoy reading! Hi, how are you doing? Great, thank you. There are, for sure, many readers who don’t know Archdruid yet. Tell […]
