Interview with Revocation

The latest Revocation album – The Outer Ones – is probably my favourite thing that the band have released. Upping both the progressive and death metal components of Revocation’s sound, the album is as monstrous as its album cover.

Let’s gain some additional insight into this sterling new release, courtesy of guitarist/vocalist David Davidson… Continue reading

Interview with Seven Sisters

Seven Sisters Logo

The Cauldron and the Cross – the second album from UK heavy metallers Seven Sisters – is definitely one of the more notable traditional metal releases that has seen the light of day this year. Good sound, good songs, good singer, good attitude; The Cauldron and the Cross ticks a lot of the right boxes.

The band’s guitarist – Graeme Farmer – answered some of my questions, so take the time to get to know this band a bit better… Continue reading

Interview with Anaal Nathrakh

A New Kind of Horror is rapidly becoming one of my most-played Anaal Nathrakh albums, and that’s with some stiff competition to go up against from the rest of their impressive discography. In my humble opinion the band’s latest album is definitely one of their best.

Dave Hunt, the band’s impressively intense vocalist, was kind enough to answer some of my questions… Continue reading

Interview with Draghkar

Ever since I first heard the band’s debut demo I’ve been a big fan of Draghkar. In a wide ocean of faceless death metal here is a band that stands out, and seem to be improving with every release. Draghkar’s latest is a full EP named The Endless Howling Abyss. Make sure you grab a copy when it’s released on July 27th, as it’s pretty damn killer.

Guitarist/vocalist BW was kind enough to give us a lot more information on the band and its history, so have a read of his thoughtful and comprehensive replies to my queries below… Continue reading

If you’re looking for something to listen to get insanely worked up to while in the gym, or just generally to get the blood pumping and heart racing, then I heartily recommend Slaughter Monolith by Abhorrent Deformity.

So sit back, feel the crushing riffs squash the life out of you, and find out a little more about the band below… Continue reading

Interview with Moonreich

The latest Moonreich album – Fugue – is an impressive collection of dark, violent black metal songs. However, there’s more to Moonreich than just sonic extremity, and Fugue is layered with the kind of depth and nuance that makes for a very moreish album. Wide-ranging and multifaceted, while being wrapped up in tightly focused aggression, Fugue is an album that’s a very strong release all-round.

Let’s find out a bit more… Continue reading

Interview with Sons of Alpha Centauri

June saw the release of the second Sons of Alpha Centauri album – Continuum. An infectiously layered and immersive trip into space, the band’s progressive tendencies truly shine on this album, and it’s an enjoyable and substantial collection of tracks.

Check out the interview with Nick Hannon below, and make sure you give the album a spin too… Continue reading

Interview with Vomitile

Vomitile’s third album Pure Eternal Hate brings the death metal – hard, fast, and heavy. There’s no messing around on this release. If you like your death metal relentlessly brutal and delivered with thunderous intensity and groove, Vomitile are the band for you. I like how the band effortlessly combine punishing riffs and drums that drop like bombs, with a decent sense of songwriting and catchiness. Yep, Pure Eternal Hate is on high rotation here at Wonderbox Metal.

I caught up with bassist/vocalist Khatch to discuss all things Vomitile… Continue reading

Interview with Gutter Instinct

Gutter Instinct just keep getting better and better. There, I said it. From the rumbling Swedish death metal monstrosity of The Insurrection, to the blackened death metal of Age of the Fanatics, and now the band’s latest grim opus Heirs of Sisyphus, Gutter Instinct are like an unstoppable juggernaut of carnage and mayhem.

Heirs of Sisyphus sees the band travel even further down the blackened path, while still retaining their core brutality. It’s a real ugly joy to listen to, and lets the listener completely wallow in aggression and darkness for an immersive 46 minutes of total morbid atmosphere and guttural destruction.

Rhythm guitarist Hannes Hellman talked to us about his band, how the new album came to be, and what lies ahead for Gutter instinct… Continue reading
