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.

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!

Lying Figures recently reached out to me about their brand new EP A World of My Own. The French Death/Doom Metal outfit only has one other release, another EP titled From Nowhere to Nothing, which came out in 2013, only about a year prior to the aforementioned follow-up. After sitting down with their latest endeavour, I put some questions together for the band in the hopes to give a little more depth to the group before the review drops in a few days, and founding guitarist Matthieu Burgaud answered the call.

Andrew Gigan of Castle Freak

I recently had the chance to check out the new Castle Freak EP Still Rotting, as well as shoot some interview questions over to the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based Death Metal/Grindcore act. Vocalist and guitarist Andrew Gigan took the time to get some answers back to me. Check out what he had to say.

At The Gates
It’s been a good nineteen years since At The Gates unleashed any new studio recordings. But, here we are in 2014, waiting anxiously for their latest effort At War With Reality. In honor of this new Metal milestone, I was given the opportunity to speak with vocalist Tomas Lindberg about the release, how the reunion is holding up, and even the future of the band as a whole. While I was not supplied a review copy prior to the discussion, we covered a good amount of ground, and is worth checking out if you want to find out about the homework you might want to do before diving into this concept release.
