CRO-MAGS: A New Quarrel

Today, there are two iterations of the Cro-Mags touring out there on the road, but that’s definitely not the case if you speak to band founder, bassist, and songwriter Harley Flanagan. For him, there’s only one Cro-Mags, and it’s the band with him set firmly in the creative driver’s seat. This is the Cro-Mags that recently signed to Victory Records and has released a killer EP of new material titled Don’t Give In.

ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE: Lonely Road Warrior Fights Off Mutants

Originally formed as a side-project to guitarist Matt Fox’s main band, Shai Hulud, Zombie Apocalypse saw Fox joined by members of The Risk Taken, Shallow Water Grave, and try.fail.try in the combination of melodic hardcore punk and classic thrash metal. We caught up with the always astute, eloquent, and hilarious Fox to discuss coming back from the grave, releasing a record no one wants or cares about, and why zombies are lame.

CARNIFEX: Full Metal Jacket

This summer sees the release of World War X, the seventh and most ambitious outing yet from San Diego’s Carnifex. Delivering all of the neck snapping riffs and pulverizing tempos that have become the band’s calling card, World War X sees the death metal five piece conceiving a war themed modern metal epic that’s as emotional and evocative as it is brutal. We caught up with vocalist Scott Ian Lewis to get the story behind the new record.

MORTIIS: Behind the Mask of Mortiis

Mortiis has gone through various changes in musical direction throughout his career, starting in Emperor and then going on to have an incredible solo career first with dungeon synth (a genre he helped create) before moving to a more goth industrial sound for the past 15 years. Now, Mortiis is digging back into his Era 1 material, performing and reinventing classic songs from his second album, and even considering potential re-recordings in the future.

SABATON: The War to End All Wars

Get your battle gear on, we are going to war! Military-esque legends Sabaton have released their newest album, The Great War. Inspired by the events of one of the most monumental wars in history, this World War I record shows the metal scene just how incredible real life history can be. We had the opportunity to go deep with Sabaton bassist Pär Sundström on everything to do with the battle metal band’s ninth record.
