Interview with Kalmah

With a string of high quality releases over their illustrious career, Kalmah has to be one of Finland’s best kept melodic death metal secret. This year the band releases their eighth full length album, Palo, and celebrate their 20th anniversary. We had the opportunity to talk to Pekka, guitarist and vocalist of the band to learn more.

HMT Interviews: Orphaned Land

Orphaned Land made a name of themselves with their messages of peace into their folk-infused metal, something that is rarely seen in the genre. They release their brand new album, Unsung Prophets & Dead Messiahs this year, and we got the opportunity to talk to them to learn more about their inspirations.

Interview with Implore

Having just released their new sophomore full length Subjugate, we were fortunate to have German extreme metal band Implore grace our shores in Singapore for their Subjugate Asia tour. Our foreign correspondent Clarence had the opportunity to sit down (or stand up, really) with vocalist/bassist Gabriel and guitarist Petro to learn more about the band’s history, and their music.

HMT Interviews: Butcher Babies

Modern metal/metalcore band Butcher Babies have come a long way since their beginnings in 2009, most notable back then for the costume of choice onstage. Over the years though, the band has changed their image, wanting their fans to focus more on their music rather than their visual appeal. We talk about this and more with band founders, Carla and Heidi.

Interview with Anthelion

In June last year, Anthelion finally dropped their sophomore full length album, Obsidian Plume. With the Taiwanese symphonic black metallers’ debut full length being a distant 7 year back, Obsidian Plume was certainly an album that was highly anticipated. After the (honestly) rather disappointing and different 2010 EP, Mañjusaka, the band returned to their roots and original style on Obsidian Plume, showing how the past years have done nothing to dull the edge that they have in their songwriting and playing. Vocalist Code tells us more about the new record.
