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.

Band of the Month: Hiss from the Moat

Hiss from the Moat epitomises the dominant style of Italian death metal currently – brutal, technical and relentless. Following in the footsteps of compatriots Hour of Penance and Fleshgod Apocalypse, this three-piece act even boasts James Payne behind the drums, and Paolo on session vocals on their debut album, Misanthropy. We catch up with the band to learn more about the concept behind Misanthropy (which has now been picked up by Nuclear Blast), and the philosophy behind their music.

Interview with Engel

Engel this year releases their third full length album, Blood of Saints, and displays their continued progression towards a sound that fuses the Gothenburg style of melodic death metal with electronic and industrial elements. We talk to Niclas, guitarist of the band to find out more about their newest release, Blood of Saints.
