Interviews

Interview: Origin

POINT OF ORIGINInterview with ORIGINBy: Dr. Abner Mality At the tail end of the 90’s something unexpected and ominous rose from the plains of Kansas. One would not have expected such a placid environment to produce one of the fiercest and most extreme sounds in all of metal, but so it was. ORIGIN exploded into existence and has continued to rain radioactive hellfire upon the metallic public ever since.

Think of eldritch names such as EXCITER, IRON ANGEL, HAWAII, AGENT STEEL and the like and you’ll instantly know the SEAX sound. Fallout Rituals is the […]

For our first interview on the relaunched Rebel Extravaganza, who better than PULCHRA MORTE, an entity which, though newly formed, harks back to those few formative but oh, so important years when both death and doom were colliding, and bands were creating something heretofore unheard within the realm of metal. Lord Randall recently sat down with guitarists Jarrett Pritchard and Jeff Breden, drummer Clayton Gore and vocalist Jason Barron to discuss the band’s debut offering, Divina Autem Et Aniles. Rebel Extravaganza: Did you approach the songwriting of the new album with conscious thought as to PULCHRA MORTE being a different […]
