Bulldozer: You guys are coming off a tour that you guys did- a fairly brief tour- how did that go for you and Rumplestiltskin Grinder, overall?

King Fowley: It went great, the West Coast was fun, you know? We’ve been a band 25 years, we never got to get out there, and do more than- we did one festival to, hell I think it was 2002 or 2001 for Jack Koshick, and he has festivals out there, but we never really got to

Shrinebuilder

Upon first hearing of this union of Heavy Music’s elite joining forces to create one super group. I vividly recall the excitement and anticipation of this historic collective calling itself Shrine Builder. I awaited with an almost childlike unrest at what these Masters of Heaviness were plotting to unleash upon a loyal and dedicated following. Image four Iconic seasoned musical veterans,

Pentagram

Up Close and Personal with the Real Bobby Liebling.
There was a question on my mind that I was determined to get answered as I prepared for my interview and approached the Pentagram tour bus recently to interview one of Heavy Music’s ideal fathering figures Bobby Liebling. Who is the real Bobby Liebling? Is he happy? For those of you familiar with Pentagram you are all well aware of the controversies surrounding Bobby Liebling’s

Diabolos

What do you get when you give instruments and amplifiers to the undead? You get ghoulish ear deafening riffs of demonic torture, you get a three piece band calling themselves Diabolos! A nocturnal blood thirsty band that hails from the darkest depths of  The Los Angeles Underground. Diabolos is indeed very frightening and interesting at the same time. They are ghoulish in the sense that these flesh eating corpses are indeed one of thee best terror/horror film inspired Death/Black/Horror bands that fiendishly exist today.

Kirk Hammet

On July 25, 2010 at The Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Hollywood Ca. I was fortunate or not fortunate enough to speak with guitarist Kirk Hammett of the Super   Mega Rock Star group “Metallica.” Kirk Hammett was hosting the 6th annual “Johnny Ramone tribute” show and somehow I managed to slip into the VIP area where I got the chance to ask this Metal Icon the real question that nobody has dared to ask him as of yet.  This is what transpired Enjoy.

1349

I got the opportunity to speak with 1349‘s legendary Norwegian Black Metal artist Frost and Ravn at a Prosthetic Records in store in support of their latest release “Demonoir.” The band had played a remarkably wicked cruel brutal set the night prior opening for tour mates “Cannibal Corpse” on The Eviscreration Plague Tour. For those not familiar with 1349 lets have a quick history lesson shall we? The band originated in 1997

Ludicra

There is some amazing music that is coming out of the Bay Area or San Francisco as we Angelinos prefer to call that Northern California region. Ludira is one of The Bay Area’s best kept secret. The band has been in existence since 1998.Origionally it was formed as a 2 man project but soon was expanded as a five-piece. The band plays a distinctive crust core influenced black metal with neo classical tendencies.

Impiety

The first extreme Black Metal band from The Far East, Singapore’s   Impiety invaded and triumphantly conquered The Black Castle in South Central Los Angeles. As the audience anxiously awaited The Dark Crusaders to hit the stage. The dark, beer soaked, and musky room   of The Black Castle was instantly transformed back in time to the ancient warrior times of Genghis Khan and his invading horde.  Upon the first opening brutal cords of Impiety set, the inebriated
