Terminal Nation have caused quite a stir with their debut album Holocene Extinction. The record combines death metal and grindcore, and then filters it through a sizeable dose of powerviolence, leaving us with a record that feels like the soundtrack to 2020. We caught up with guitarist Dalton Rail to get the inside scoop on the band, the record, and the mountain of tone that is Holocene Extinction.
As Strike Anywhere release their first recorded music in over ten years, the lean Nightmares of the West EP, we caught up with guitarist Matt Smith to talk about Dr Z amps, how wrong Equipboard can be, and guitars that have had the ever living shit kicked out of them.
Ten years on from their self titled debut's mix of hardcore and doom, Xibalba have finally made the transition to a full on death doom band with the release of their new record, Años En Infierno. I spent some time with guitarist Brian Ortiz, talking about metal, throwing away guitar strings, and the diversity of California's hardcore and metal scenes.
