…once, just this once, we will let this video courtesy of one Andy Rehfeldt speak the thoughts of those with especial strong feelings.*
*Me(n)tal-Meltdown would like to add that the blog and its author actually have nothing against Nuclear Blast** – on the contrary; much love is held for the bands on its roster, namely Accept, Carcass, Doro Pesch, Enforcer, Overkill, plus a few others who haven’t signed over yet.
This post is merely in the name of harmless fun! See you in the pit!
**For those who are more excited about the band’s move to Nuclear Blast as well as the promise of a new album, here you go; courtesy of Nuclear Blast UK:
Gosh, how long has it been since I last spoke to Dolk, frontman and mastermind of Kampfar?
It’s a pleasure to catch up with familiar faces, and what better way for me to pick his brain on Norwegian society and traditions again, than before their London gig with Hate and Iskald?
Drummer Ask Ty got to chip in with his two cents, to boot!
When you’re from one of the smaller scenes in your homeland, it must be amazing to be able to travel abroad and play gigs in other countries.
It certainly looked to be the case, for Iskald’s drummer and co-founder Aage André Krekling.
Right before the band got up to play the first act for Kampfar and Hate at the Underworld on April 3rd, I was lucky enough to snag a few minutes to sit down for a brief talk about touring, the Bodø scene and more.
Following a split with Bongripper and a live album at Roadburn, three man band Conan got to work on a fresh new album, “Blood Eagle”. Though only their second LP (or third, counting ‘Horseback Battle Hammer’), the record sees a band determined not to rest on their laurels.
After a bustling afternoon at the Liverpool city centre, I got together with founder and frontman Jon Davis to discuss songwriting, being honest with yourself and the importance of a good sound system.
