Asmodeus of Eternal Armageddon

Posted by

Bangladesh’s Eternal Armageddon have returned to action with a brand new line-up, as well as a new demo. After a brief hold for about a year starting in 2013, the now three-piece entered the studio to record what became the Black Thrash Bastards demo. Feeling that only a review may not be enough for this occassion, I sent over some interview questions via e-mail, which were answered by vocalist and bassist Asmodeus. Check out what he had to say!

Jerry Hauppa of Ara

I was recently turned onto the Wisconsin Technical Death Metal band Ara with their latest release Devourer of Worlds. While I haven’t gotten around to reviewing it for the site yet, I was able to get some questions together and shoot them over the band. Guitarist Jerry Hauppa took the time to get back to me about the band, the album, the potential of a scale tour schedule, and more. Check out what he had to say below, and be sure to check out the stream of Devourer of Worlds courtesy Ara‘s Bandcamp page!

Stream – Unrest: “Quit” / Chris Grigg Interview

Posted by

Unrest‘s debut full-length album has basically just been a myth over the years. After the recordings not being up to par with the band’s standards and a member moving away, all hope seemed lost as to this recording ever finding its way out. But recently, all that changed. The decision was made to do some re-recording and finally make this band’s first full-length, titled Grindcore, available to their loyal fans, as well as lovers of Nasum. And, thanks to the killer folk over at Clawhammer PR, Apoch’s Metal Review is bringing you an exclusive stream of the track “Quit” so you can get your grind on while reading this e-mail interview with drummer/vocalist Chris Grigg.

Luciano “Lucifer Crow” Estrada of Morning Star

Morning Star has returned with their latest album, Adonai, which was just recently released. Three albums after forming, and the one-man project from Luciano “Lucifer Crow” Estrada has shifted to a Black Metal approach. I recently had the chance to check out the album, and in the process had the chance to shoot some questions over to Luciano about it, the change in direction, his classifying the sound as “White Metal”, and more. Check out what he had to say below, and when you’re done be sure to see how the album stacks up in the Apochs.net review here!

Over the years, Lord Dying has been working hard at becoming a major power house in the Sludge Metal community. Two years after their Relapse Records debut Summon the Faithless, the four-piece return with their latest effort Poisoned Altars. I was given the chance to shoot some interview questions over the band to discuss the album, the recent line-up change, and more. Check out what guitarist/vocalist Erik Olson had to say!
