Got an interview for y'allz. This is with Midnight Chaser, a kickass NWOBHM-style traditional metal band from Oakland. Well, not Oakland anymore because two of the guys are moving to Pittsburgh. They've all been friends of mine for a little over a year, and they're collectively some of the nicest and coolest dudes you could ever meet. They just did a little West Coast tour before the move, and I ended up catching the Ventura and Pasadena dates. Giant pizza was eaten, beer was consumed, some backwater hick threatened to kill guitarist Steve (who may be one of the warmest, nicest and most fun guys I have ever met), and great times were had. I miss the guys so much already.

Anyway, this interview was actually conducted in two parts. The first chunk was in November 2013 at a Brocas Helm show in SF, and the second half was in Pasadena. I had to do a little bit of surgery to make the two halves fit together, especially since the album was released a couple months ago (and it fucking rules and every fool on here should listen to it). Enjoy!

I've got an article that will get published on Invisible Oranges on Thursday that I'm pretty stoked about, and then I've got a more grander scale project that is still in the works. Stay tuned dudes.

Got another article for these here interspaces. It's on Behold! The Monolith, an awesome stoner/NWOBHM/thrash band. Their singer died in a car accident about a year back, which I remember being a huge blow to the underground scene here in LA, and I ended up seeing their first show back with their retooled lineup. I talked with guitarist Matt, who I had met an earlier show, and offered to do an interview and the ideas for the article started flowing. A few days after, we met for the interview at a Coffee Bean like 10 minutes away from where I work and we knocked it out, then it was transcribing and writing. It's probably one of the most rapidly done projects I've taken on. Enjoy!

And as of this article, I guess I am now an official contributor to Invisible Oranges!

Two more interviews, both done at Thee Parkside a month and some change back. Saviours, Pins of Light and Hazzard's Cure were on the bill and all three shredded faces.

First interview is Saviours. If you don't like them, you're probably just a really awful person. I basically found Sonny, asked if he wanted to do an interview and we knocked it out nice and easy. Nothing fancy.

Next is Hazzard's Cure. I did already do a piece on them some time back, but IO's editor found out I was going to be at the show and asked for the interview. No complaints from anybody! These guys are some of the coolest dudes I know up north, and some of the most talented musicians the bay has to offer. Definitely a band that deserves more recognition outside the bay area.

Interviews for my next major project are almost complete, so I'm pretty stoked to finish that up. Onward!

Hey people! I interviewed a really killer and kinda bonkershit Bay Area band called Dimesland. They're like if Voivod and Atheist had a baby and that baby had a horrible nightmare. They're awesome and 3/4ths of the band play in Wild Hunt, which is also awesome. I also got to set up a full stream of their new album, so you can listen and enjoy that.

Alrighty! So I've got here an article on the history of women in the bay's metal scene. I started this thing literally a week or so after finishing the Lucifer's Hammer article, and I slowly interviewed women who had played big roles in the scene over the last 20 or so years. The first one was probably the most significant, when I met with Sigrid Sheie and Leila Abdul-Rauf from Hammers of Misfortune. They really helped inform the direction of the article and guided me on how to write in a classy and respectful manner. They also have me a big old list of names to try and contact, and so I set about doing that. Some interviews were in-person, others were over the phone, one was done over Skype and a couple were via email. Since I spent last fall getting my ass beaten by school, I had to kind of chip away at this whenever I had the time. The only person who I couldn't get to participate was Lori Joseph from Acid King, which is a shame because I would've loved to have more information from her time. I'm pretty excited by the results though, and I hope you all dig it.

Next is an interview with Steve Ramsey from Satan. So the day of the show, I hit up a couple of the band's old penpals from the '80s to see if they were in touch with Satan and so I could try and score an interview. It almost worked, but the show was so packed that it was just a clusterfuck, so no interview would happen then. A bit later after the band returned to England though, I found Satan's press contact, which turned out to be Steve Ramsey, emailed him and did the interview over Skype. The guy was crazy jolly, laughing all the time often at his and the band's own expense. It was a fun chat all-around!

Just read this and it's a really great interview. Good job man!

I found his comments about them being different and it hurting them in terms of popularity for the NWOBHM interesting. Personally, I think it's more just that they were at the tail-end of it. Because the NWOBHM is a movement and not really a genre, the bands didn't sound the same. Sure, there were some commonalities amongst many of the bands in terms of sound, but when Venom is also included in that category, I don't know if saying they sound different is really a reason why they didn't blow up. I think they were just a bit too late.

Either way, I really enjoyed that interview. I'll be reading your other article soon!
