Interview: Frayle

Within its short 3-year lifespan, Ohio’s atmospheric metal duo (now turned quintet) FRAYLE has birthed 2 EPs featuring its heady blend of ethereal vocals and towering riffs/rhythms, culminating now in the recently-released debut full-length, 1692. Lord Randall sat down with founding members Gwyn Strang and Sean Bilovecky to time travel back to 1692, and discuss how, though much has changed, much remains the same. BY CHOICE, NOT BLOODInterview with Gwyn Strang and Sean Bilovecky of FRAYLEInterview By: Lord Randall Rebel Extravaganza: Back in 2017 when FRAYLE was birthed, did you already have a plan in mind – an image or […]

INTERVIEW: LEGENDRY

Welcome to our humble pub here in the city of Ardona, far beyond the world you know. Have a seat and a tankard of ale while we listen to The Bard tell us of The Warrior with No Name. Here we await the presence of Vidarr, himself a bard of no mean renown, and the man behind the metal majesty of LEGENDRY, a band reveling in stories of courage, danger and high adventure. Vidarr knows much of the Warrior’s tale and has used LEGENDRY to tell the story. The latest chapter is The Wizard And The Tower Keep, which tells […]

Interview: Tomb Mold

Our planet is in peril. Does it have its own consciousness, its own voice? Perhaps it speaks to us through music. If Canada’s TOMB MOLD are the conduit for this planetary mind, then the voice of the world is more of a scream of rage and horror. That is what TOMB MOLD captures on their new album Planetary Clairvoyance. The band has been one of the most talked about in death metal circles for the last few years. Few bands can capture both sickness and technicality like TOMB MOLD can. They also have a cosmic/science fiction edge which gives their […]

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. But ORIGIN had a lengthier incubation period than its cataclysmic arrival would seem to suggest. The beginnings of the band had been percolating and bubbling in the Kansas plains from a […]

Interview: Indestructible Noise Command

THINGS ARE ALWAYS TERRIBLE Interview with INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND By: Dr. Abner Mality INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND first surfaced in the heady days of the first thrash revolution. They were the only band of that ilk that I know of hailing from Connecticut. They made a nice splash, especially in their East Coast environs, but they didn’t have a national breakout like other notables of the time such as TESTAMENT, NUCLEAR ASSAULT and SACRED REICH did. But these soliders took the “Indestructible” part of their monicker seriously and never totally gave up the ghost. They made a comeback a few years […]

Interview: PULCHRA MORTE

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 […]
