Interview: Kat Gillham (Nine Altars/Thronehammer)

As most of you know, there is a circle of bands that we – and let’s be honest about this – have grown particularly attached to over the years. One of them is without question Thronehammer, who Aidan and I were able to see live together twice last year. Against this background, we were of […]

Interview: Gatekeeper

Exactly two years ago, on 26 January 2021, we published for the last time an interview with Jeff Black from Gatekeeper – this article was released as a part of our big Manilla Road Special. Since we always enjoy chatting with Jeff and the new Gatekeeper album From Western Shores will be out on 1 […]

Interview: Black Messiah

Vor einer Woche schrieben wir bereits, dass uns Black Messiah auf dem Wolfszeit Festival 2022 sehr gut gefallen haben. Kurz nach unserem Ausflug nach Thüringen stand fest: Mit Bandgründer Zagan, als einziges Mitglied seit 1992 an Bord, möchten wir uns unbedingt für den Epic Metal Blog unterhalten. Herausgekommen ist ein sehr lebendiges Zoom-Gespräch, das wir […]

Live Report: Blaze Bayley + Absolva (Dortmund)

Text: André, Pics & Videos: Aidan, Sven Biwo and a nice lady Blaze Bayley concerts are something very special: Even today, I am still thinking back with a big satisfied grin on my face to a remarkably intense gig at the Bastard Club in Osnabrück, when the maestro and the Absolva boys treated their fans […]

Interview: Fabula Rasa

English version below Heute widmen wir uns mal einem Genre, das auf unserem Blog eher selten beleuchtet wird: Power Folk! Ihr könnt euch darunter nichts vorstellen? Dann lest euch am besten mal das unten stehende Interview durch, das wir mit Fabula Rasa aus Düsseldorf geführt haben. Viel Spaß dabei! Danke, dass ihr euch Zeit für […]

Discography Check: Seven Sisters

It’s about time to continue our section Discography Check, which we started a year ago. We kick off with a band that means a lot to us: Seven Sisters. With this little feature, the Epic Metal Blog also thanks these artists for their just completed European tour, where they absolutely captivated many fans. We hope you […]

Interview: Theandric

Fortunately, you can always discover wonderful gems in the underground. One of them is Theandric’s EP Flight Among the Tombs, which already enchanted me during the first listen. Against this background, it is not surprising that we asked the band’s founder, Paul Tiseo, if he would like to answer a few questions for us. Luckily, […]

Interview: Angel Martyr

This interview is to be considered as part of our recent Epic Metal Blog Birthday Special, honouring our co-editor-in-chief Aidan on the occasion of his 19th birthday. Unfortunately, however, we had to postpone our talk with Angel Martyr because one of the band members was confronted with private matters that are much more important. We […]

Interview: Starscape

In this part of the Epic Metal Blog Birthday Special we enter Sweden. Last year, Starscape’s debut Colony was one of Aidan’s favourite records, which kept him excited all year long. I am therefore very happy that Anton Eriksson (all instruments) took the time to chat with us about his band and all sorts of […]

Interview: Heathen Kings

With this part of the Epic Metal Blog Birthday Special, we enter Albion, the island where Aidan spent the first years of his life. There is hardly a band from there that has made such an impact on us in the past year as the Heathen Kings – both Aidan and I wrote very positive […]
