Interview with Execration

Execration Header

In my humble opinion Execration are one of the best extreme metal bands out there at the moment. Firmly placing themselves on my radar with their third album Morbid Dimensions, the band have recently resurfaced on Metal Blade with their latest offering Return to the Void, and I have to say it’s been more than worth the wait.

If you haven’t heard Execration yet, then now’s the chance to check them out. You can stream their shockingly good new album below, while reading what their very personable and eloquent guitarist and vocalist Chris Johansen has to say. Continue reading

Interview with Mutation

If you’re familiar with the majority of Ginger’s past work, (his solo material and The Wildhearts being the obvious ones that most would probably know), then the latest album from this particular project might surprise you with its content. It’s not pretty, but it is pretty stunning.

With a jaw-dropping mix of extremity and catchiness, and a bucketful of emotional content to match, Mutation have put something quite special together for their latest album – III: Dark Black. All I can say is please, for the love of everything heavy, nasty, and extreme, go and listen to it.

Get ready to unleash the demons… Continue reading

Interview with Goatwhore

After two decades of existence extreme metallers Goatwhore show no sign of wear and tear as they’ve just released what’s possibly their best and most well-rounded album to date – Vengeful Ascension. If you haven’t heard it yet then I strongly urge you to check it out as it’s quite the corker.

Drummer Zack Simmons talked to us a bit about the new album… Continue reading

Interview with Dead Label

Dead Label Header

Dead Label are somewhat of a rarity these days in metal – a band that has the ability and potential to have quite a wide appeal, while still staying true to themselves and what metal is all about. Throne of Bones, their second album from 2016, exemplifies this.

We caught up with them fresh from their recent appearance at the Download Festival in the UK. The band’s drummer – Claire Percival – shared her rather infectious enthusiasm with us… Continue reading

Interview with Wo Fat

Wo Fat are a band that know how to write a good tune. Hot off the back of their stunning sixth album, 2016’s Midnight Cometh, they’re already thinking of what comes next for the band.

If you haven’t heard Wo Fat before I urge you to check them out. As far as I’m concerned they’re one of the best bands out there playing stoner/doom rock/metal. Continue reading

Interview with Decrepit Throne

Decrepit Throne LogoMelodic black metal band Decrepit Throne’s debut album Traitor’s Grave is the type of album that I really enjoy just sticking on and then letting the blackness and melodic atmospheres roll on over me. There’s no messing around, no ostentation, no unnecessary distractions, and no filler on this album. What you see is what you get, and what you get is very good indeed.

Gregory, one half of the infernal duo that is Decrepit Throne, is a man seemingly possessed by the musical spirit of the second wave, as channelled in a down-to-earth and unassuming way. He was kind enough to pass a few words with us here at Wonderbox Metal about Traitor’s Grave and the band in general.

So, don’t let Decrepit Throne pass you by; check out the band, what they have to offer, and what they’re all about below… Continue reading

Interview with Entrails

Entrails Header

The latest Entrails release World Inferno is an utterly storming and deadly album. Effectively channelling the spirit of the old-school Swedish death metal scene, Entrails are pretty much up there with the best of the bands playing the style.

Guitarist and driving force behind the band Jimmy Lundqvist gave me a bit of added insight into the band and what they’re up to now that World Inferno is about to be unleashed on the world…

Introduce us to Entrails

Interview with Contaminated

Contaminated Logo

Australian dark death metallers Contaminated are about to unleash their debut album on the world, and what a beast it is. Final Man contains 34 minutes of pestilent, disgustingly ugly death metal, the likes of which you rarely find these days.

Rotting aesthetics aside, the band have obviously got a talent for their death metal songwriting too, as the album is full of thick, weighty slabs of brutality and darkness, all presented to the listener in ripe, virulent, plague-ridden promise. Contaminated are well worth braving sickness for.

So put on your protective gear and get stuck in – Contaminated are waiting for you… Continue reading

Interview with Amiensus

Amiensus Header

The latest EP by Amiensus – All Paths Lead to Death – has shown a stripped-back band, ready to savagely burn anyone near them with their red-hot display of blistering black metal. WIth some quality songwriting skills and plenty of venomous attitude, this is 29 minutes you don’t want to miss.

So, sit back, take All Paths Lead to Death for a spin and have a read of the below… Continue reading
