Interview  with  Max  Molodtsov  vocals  and  all  instruments   of  Sorrowful  Land   done  by   Patrick



1. Hello, Max, please introduce yourself to the readers and tell us at what age did you become interested in playing and writing music?

Hi there, folks! Greets from Ukraine! Name’s Max, I’m musician from Kharkov, Ukraine and the mastermind of Atmospheric Doom/Death band Sorrowful Land. As I recall I was like 14 when I realized that I want to become a musician. My mom was the one who presented me an acoustic guitar and I started to learn how to use that thing J Firstly it was more pretending then real playing of course. I ran a Metallica CD and just hit the strings like a James Hetfield wannabe. Oh, God, it was awful and funny!

2. What were the first instruments you learned to play? Are there any instruments that you would like to learn one day?

Obviously – guitar. An acoustic one. I took some lessons, but then I abandoned these classes ‘cause they were way too boring and if you wanna play metal – attending musical classes ain’t the option.

 
3. Max, you formed Sorrowful Land in 2014, when did you get the idea to start this band and who are some of Sorrowful Land's influences?

The funny thing is that it was not totally my idea! Originally it was a duo. The story goes like: in April of 2014 I received a PM on my Facebook page from a dude I knew for quite some time. And that fellow was Peter Laustsen from a Swedish Melodic Doom band WHEN NOTHING REMAINS. How cool is that? It was he who offered me to create a collaboration project in more darker and heavier style then our main bands played. We both enjoyed Funeral Doom so we decided to give it a try. And then I came with the name “SORROWFUL LAND” and so on. But now it’s totally my solo-project. As for the influences I can name such bands as Doom:VS, Colosseum, Evoken, even a bit of Esoteric. 

4. Sorrowful Land is signed to the great doom label - Solitude Prods. How did you come in contact with this label?

I knew this label for 5 years so far. I’ve been with them since they signed my main Gothic/Doom band – EDENIAN. All Edenian albums were released through the Solitude Productions. So it was not a question for me where to release a debut Sorrowful Land album. And it turned out great!


5. The band released the debut CD "Of Ruins…" How long did it take you to write the music for these songs? Max, you also write the lyrics for the band, what are some topics you wrote about on the debut album?

 Yes, the album was released on November, 7th. It took me two years to complete the album. Main themes for the lyrics are my own feelings, experiences, soul-searching, some dark thoughts I carry within. Also I often use a classic English poetry of XIX century, adopting it for a song. You can find a lot of gems in old poetry.  


6. Max, you handle everything for Sorrowful Land, when you started this band did you plan on working as “one-man band” or would you like to find other musicians to work with?

 Let’s set it clear. When Sorrowful Land appeared – it was a duo (me & Peter Laustsen) and it meant to be this way. But time flows and things change. Since the beginning of 2016 Sorrowful Land came under my control. And it’s gonna be like this ‘cause I’m a “control freak” you know? If something goes wrong – I’m the one to blame, haha


7. If you had the opportunity to work with any musicians - who are some musicians you would like to work with? And what do you feel is the best and worst thing about being the sole member of the band?

Never thought ‘bout that yet. Time will show. Maybe some guest musicians will appear on the next album, who knows. As for the being a sole member of the band – the main thing here is that you’re in charge and the great responsibility is on your shoulders only. I’m ok with that. But sometimes I feel so lazy to record bass parts or compose some cool solo, so I go like “Oh, I need someone else to help me out with that shit”. I think I may call it a “worst thing”.

8. Besides the debut CD "Of Ruins…" does the band have any other merchandise available for the readers at this time? If yes, what is available and where can the readers buy it?

 I’d like to say yes, but no. So for now only the debut CD is available for purchasing. You can order it here: https://www.solitudestore.com/en/product/sorrowful-land-2016-of-ruins/ 



9. Max, you live in Ukraine, what is your opinion of the Ukrainian death/doom scene? And who are some of your all-time favorite bands from Ukraine?

We have some pretty decent doom bands here in Ukraine. To name some: Endlesshade, Luna, Embrace of Silence, Eternal Void, WinterMor, Mental Torment. But the funny thing is that Ukrainian bands I like don’t play doom. I enjoy a power-metal band Morton, I think they’re doing great. 


10. Besides atmospheric death/doom do you listen to any other forms of doom or music in general if yes, who are some of your most favorite bands and artists?

 Indeed, I listen to almost every genre of rock and metal music: heavy-metal, thrash, death, melodic-death, black, gothic, progressive, power, etc. As for the favorite bands – TONS OF THEM!! To name a few: Metallica, Slayer, Kataklysm, Amon Amarth, Iced Earth, Kamelot,  Nickelback, Trivium, Breaking Benjamin, Lacuna Coil, Epica, Draconian, and the list is almost endless 


11. Besides working and playing in Sorrowful Land do you currently work with any other bands or projects if yes, please tell the readers a little about them?

As said before I have a female-fronted Gothic/Doom band called EDENIAN. It gathered in 2010, we released two full-length albums, EP and a couple of singles. One can easily find us on Internet and give it a listen ;)


12. Max, besides playing music you also recently started a webzine called “Shelter Of Doom”, when did you get the idea to start this webzine? Besides Atmospheric Doom do you want to cover and promote any other forms of doom or music in general? So far there are only reviews up, do you have any interest to do some interviews soon or is this a ‘zine only for reviews?

It’s true. Guys from Solitude Prods asked me if I want to write reviews for their upcoming releases and I came with idea of creating my own blog where I can share my humble opinion not only on Solitude Prods releases but every album or EP or even single that I like (or not). So Shelter Of Doom was created. And yes – it’s dedicated to doom-metal only. Also I’m having a thought about adding “Interviews” button. 



13. Do you have anyone helping with the webzine or do you prefer to work alone? If any bands or labels are reading this - where can they send their music to be reviewed?

I prefer to do things myself ‘cause review is very subjective form of expression your own thought. And if you mean help with blog construction, then I must say it’s an easy thing to do, nothing special. Everyone who wants to be  reviewed can PM me on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/EternalTom) and we’ll discuss the options.

14. Thank you Max for taking the time to fill this interview out. Do you have any final words for the readers?

Thank you too, Patrick, for interesting questions! I had fun answering them. Words for readers would be: support metal scene, support Sorrowful Land, support Edenian and stay safe and doomy! \m/

Interview  with  Fredrik   Larsson   bassist  of   Hammerfall  done  by  Patrick


1.Hello  please  introduce yourself  to  the  readers? How  are  things  going  in  Sweden  these days?

Hi! Fredrik Larsson here, bass player of HammerFall! Things are getting a bit busy now with rehearsals coming up and still a lot of promotion and preparing to do. And of course the usual stress with everything around Christmas. Other than that, it's all good! 
 
2.Hammerfall  is  getting  ready to  release  their  new  cd  "Built To Last"  through  Napalm  Rec. how  did  the  band  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label?
 
Well, we were kind of looking around for a new label since our contract was fulfilled and we wanted to do things in a different way instead of just doing it the same way we've always done. We had a casual meeting with Thomas ad he made some impressions on us so we started to investigate our options and we were even more convinced that this was the way to go. It feels like it's still I'm the beginning but so far we have a great cooperation. 
 
 
3.How  long  did  it  take  the  band to  write the  music for the  new  release?Does  the  whole  band  work  on  the  music  or does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

It's mostly Oscar and Joacim that writes and I think Oscar started pretty much right after the last tour ended. There is a lot of planning to do and it's hard to know if you will write the perfect album in three months or in twelve so it's best to start early. I know he had a hard time getting the inspiration he needed so it took some time but he is also very structured and sat down a couple of hours every day just to get something down and in the end he'll get there. It's not a democracy in that case but it's always been Oscar and Joacim that had the vision for HammerFall and they have done a great job so far!

4.Are  their  any  shows  or  tours  planned  in  support  of    "Built To Last"   if  yes  where  are  some  countries  the  band  will  be  playing?Any  idea  who  are  some  bands  Hammerfall  will  be  touring  with?

We have a hectic period beginning early January next year. We start off with a European tour together with Gloryhammer and Lancer and then we have a South America tour coming up and later on a North America tour with Delain. And that before the festival summer starts off. We haven't planned next fall yet but I'm sure we're gonna squeeze in a couple of more shows. 

5.What  have  been  some  of  the  bands  most  memorable  shows  over  the  years?

For me personally I would say the Ines we've done in Scandinavium in Gothenburg. That's where I saw most of my childhood idols, such as Accept, Iron Maiden, Anthrax and many many more. To be on the same stage is a fantastic feeling and something I wouldn't even dream of when I was on the other side of the fence as a kid. And I must mention a free concert we did in Gothenburg as well, that was truly amazing. There were people everywhere. We played on top of our biggest avenue and it was so crowded you couldn't see the end. Fantastic. 
 
6.Are  their  any plans to  mane  a  video  for  the  new  release? If you  had  your  choice  what  song  would  you  like  to  see  made  into  a  video?

Well, we did a lyrical video to ‘The Sacred Vow’ and a proper video to ‘Hammer High’ which obviously are the singles. We usually just do one video per album so consider this a bonus. 

7.Hammerfall  also  plays  a lot  of  cover  songs  of  various  bands and  in  2008  did  a  cover  album "Masterpieces" what  have  been  some  of your  personal  favorite  cover songs  to do? Are  their  any  cover  songs  that  the  band  has  not  yet  done   that  you  would  like to  record  someday?

Since I didn't play on most of the cover versions I have to say ‘Youth Gone Wild’. A song that I really liked when I was younger and still think is a killer song! I can't say that I think about cover songs, it's just a fun thing to do. Don't hold your breath for more covers though. 

8.Hammerfall  formed  in  the  mid  90's  what  has  kept  the  band  going  strong  after  all  these  years?

I think we've always done things by heart and not followed trends. We play Heavy Metal the way we think it should be and we still love this. If we wouldn't I think it would have shown and people would notice. 
 
9.The  band  comes  out  of  Sweden's  heavy  metal   scene  besides  heavy  metal  do  any  of  the  members  listen/like  any  other forms  of  metal  and  music  in  general?

Yes, of course. We all like a lot of different music. I listen to a lot heavier music, thrash and groove or whatever the genres are called these days. I used to listen and play a lot of death metal as well but not so much right now. I know Oscar still listens to some old school death metal and we use to talk about it from time to time. We played together in Crystal Age, a death metal band, before I joined HammerFall. 

10.When  not   working  on  new  music  or  band  business  what  do  you  all  enjoy  doing  in  your  free  time?

Right now, HammerFall is taking most of our time, but Joacim is really into Whiskey and Champagne. Oscar is a big MMA supporter and he also collects and play a lot of video games. Pontus works as a Front of House engineer and records a lot of bands both live and in his studio. David is into beers and peppers, he always have a new brand to speak about. And I try to get as much family time as I can before the tours start. I got two sons that really wants my attention all the time.
 
 
11.Thank  you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview  out  do  you  have  any  final  comments  for  the  readers?

Thank you very much! I hope I'll catch you all out on tour somewhere or on a festival nearby. Bring some friends and make the party even bigger!

Interview  with  Michal S. keyboardist  of  Self-Hatred   done  by   Patrick

1.Hello  Michal  please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?How  are  things  going  with you  these  days?

First of all thank you for this interview invitation. We are Self Hatred - doom/death metal band from Pilsen – Czech Republic. I play the keyboards and take second place in our band for the oldest member. J Number one is our drummer Datel. We just played 2 last gigs of the year where we finally had a chance to introduce our debut album Theia to the audience in real. The real CD I mean J Things are going well nowadays. Personally I am looking forward to 2017. There is a couple of great gigs ahead of us. Most of them in abroad. Currently we work on new album which should be recorded in March 2017 (Hellsound studio).


2.When  did you  first  meet the  other  members  of  the  band  and was  it  long  before you  all formed   Self-Hatred?

It is roughly 7 years since I first met Aleš and Štěpán. I just started a new job in Pilsen. During the break I went for a fag and the Smoking area outside of the building was the place were we seen each other for the first time. I could hear them speaking of some doom metal band they played at and asked more about it. This is how it has started. Between this moment and forming Self-Hatred also Stollice arised, where Aleš, me and Štěpán played together. 


3.What  is  the  current  line-up  of  the  band? And for the  readers  who  have  never  heard    Self-Hatred's  music  how  would  you  best  describe  it?

Kaťas / growls, whispers, Pavel Janouškovec / guitars, Aleš Vilingr / guitars, Štěpán Eret / bass,Michal "Datel" Rak / drums, Michal Šanda / keyboards. If you are into a spirit of the 90’s doom scene, combining it with modern sound and specific interpretation, this is what you will get.Our music is dark, black, and cold. On the other hand even more romantic or sensitive people might be pleased.


4. Self-Hatred   is  signed  to  Solitude  Prod. how  did you  all  come  in  contact  with this  label?


Solitude  Prod. also released album for Et Moriemur where Aleš, Pavel and Datel play. So we knew what they are capable of and when we sent out our materials to the labels, Solitude reacted in 2 days.


5.The  band  is  getting ready to  release  the  debut  cd "Theia" does  the   whole  band  work  on   writing the  music  or  does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

Well, "Theia" is alive already. Writing the music is process of all of us. Normaly what we do is that Aleš or me come with an idea and we all work on it. 


6.Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics  for the  music and  what  are  some  topics  the  band  writes  about?

Katas is the lyrics master The ideas come out from what we experienced or what we are interested in. But if you want to point out some topics. It would be fears, melancholy, universe, love.

7.Besides  the debut cd  "Theia"  does  the  band  have  any  other  merchandise  available  for the  readers? If  yes  what  is  available  and  where can the readers  buy your  release and  merchandise?

There are two T-shirt versions. You can go to our facebook web site to find out more. You can also purchase a sticker  if the CD or  the T-shirts are not enough and show the whole world that Self-Hatred is the way you chose.Alternatively you can order all above also through the following e-mail: selfhatred.doom@gmail.com. You can use Bandcamp and webshop if that is more suitable. The webshop will be offering merchandise of our befriended bands and ours of course. Et Moriemur and Quercus among others.


8. Michal  you  play  the  keyboards  for the  band  at  what  age did you  start  playing the  keyboards?Who  are  some of your  favorite  keyboard  players?

It is a long time ago since I started. I think I was arround 20. That makes it 18 years back in time. To be honest I do not have any idols or icons I would obey. But I respect a lot of musicians. Especially classical music performers. If you want a name I will give you Lindsay Schoolcraft - Cradle Of Filth, Joakim Svalberg-Opeth.  I adore Depeche Mode and what Ihsahn does with the keys for Emperor.

 9.Besides  the keyboards  do  you  currently  play  any  other  instruments if  yes what  instruments do  you  play? Are  their  any  instruments  you  would  like to  learn  one day?

I do play the guitar a bit. And I should be supporting Katas with my vocal on the next album. The instrument I would like to learn one day is the cello. Because of it’s sound and the vibrations you get from the instrument while playing it.

10.Besides  playing  in  Self-Hatred    do you  or  any  of the  members of the  band currently  work  in  any  other  bands  or  projects?

Et Moriemur – Paja, Datel, Aleš. The rest of the members are only focused on SH.


11.Self-Hatred   comes  out  of  the  Czech Republic's death/doom  scene.I  know  that the  Czech Republic  has  a strong  death,black  scene  but  don't  know  much  of the doom metal scene.What  is your  opininon of  the  doom scene  in the Czech Republic?

It actually moved from the North of Moravia to the west part of Bohemia (both are parts of the Czech Republic). Some years ago there were doom metal bands playing perhaps in around Moravia. Bands I would like to mentioned are: DISSOLVING OF PRODIGY, BLACK HEAVEN, HYPNOTIC SCENERY, R.E.T., SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY, ENDLESS and MYTHOPOEIA. Doom metal as we know it dissappeared in it’s traditional way. Our debut basicaly links with this era. Theia should pull up the memories of the good old times.

12.Who  are your  all-time  favorite  bands  from the Czech Republic? Are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

SIlent Stream Of Godless Elegy, Dissolving Of Prodigy, Krabathor, Mythopoeia, Sorath , Et Moriemur, Somnus Aeternus. 

13.Besides  bands  are  their  any good  labels  or  distro's  you  can  recommend  to  the  readers?


It would be Pařát Productions. It‘s benefit for the czech doom metal scene is enormous. Thanks to Pařát the DISSOLVING OF PRODIGY vinyl reedition was released. But the credits are more. Apart from publishing printed magazine, I also recomend to visit the eshop. There is a tribute CD to be released soon. You will have a chance to hear one unreleased song we made especially for this project and never played live so far. More info to be found on Facebook or our website soon.

14.When  not  working  on  new  music  or  band  business  what  do  you  like to do  in your  free  time?

Drinking Becherovka.  But because my lady is into sport a lot, I do also biking and hiking. Reading of books makes my day also. And my life is totally affected by Monty Python's Flying Circus.


15.Thank  you  Michal for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this   interview  out  do you   have  any  final  words  for  the  readers?

Live in joy

Interview  with  BG.  owner  of  Barbarian  Wrath Rec.  done  by    Patrick


1.Hello   BG   please   introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?  At  what  age  did  you  find  yourself  getting  into  metal  music  and  who   were  some  of the  early  bands  you   listened  to?

You mean there's still people out there who don't know me...? O_o I got into Metal at the age of 12 through a class mate at school. That was back in 1979. He had a slightly older cousin who already was into Metal and we started listening to his AC/DC and MOT�RHEAD albums while playing "Defender" on our ATARI 2600 video games. Those were the times... :) I got into other bands mostly by chance since there was nothing even remotely resembling a Metal press or Hell forbid, a Metal radio in Germany. I got into ACCEPT in 1983 when I had a class mate record me a FOREIGNER album and he put "Restless And Wild" on the flip side. It was his Dad's record and he thought I'd like it.... Needless to say the ACCEPT side got a lot more playing time, hahaha. There are similar stories about how I got into IRON MAIDEN or SAXON in those years. All that changed in 1984 with the advent of Metal Hammer which was quickly followed by fanzines which used to be sold in one of the local record stores.

2.I  believe  before  you  started    Barbarian  Wrath   you  were  owner  and  operater  of  Nazgul's  Eyrie   how  long  was  this  label  open  for?  And  what  made  you  decide  to  stop  it?

Guilty. NAZGULS EYRIE lasted (on paper) from 1993 to 1999 and was directly followed by BARBARIAN WRATH. When you look at release dates however you'll see that the really active time was between July 1994 and July 1996 followed by a long period of agony caused by bad business decisions which cost me a lot of money and my sanity. When I had finally paid off the financial aftermath I changed the name and gave it another go which I'm happy to say went somewhat more smoothly. However, the name of NAZGULS EYRIE was burnt and spent so I came up with something more personal instead. The fact that everyone and their grandmothers were running around with pseudonymes based on Tolkien may have also played a minor role in my decision.


3.In  2000  you  formed    Barbarian  Wrath Rec. what  gave  you  the  idea  to  start  up  a  different  label?  And  how  did  you  choose    Barbarian  Wrath   as  the  name  for  your  new  label?

I sort of explained that in the previous question already. It's not a different label in my mind, it's the same thing, just run in a slightly more professional way :D The name came up at some point based on my nickname at the time. My gentleman-like behaviour caused me to be referred to as the "Bavarian Barbarian" by the guys of COUNTESS at first and by pretty much everyone soon after. Since I was coming back (well, trying to) with a vengeance from the NEP disaster the "Wrath" part just fell into place :)

4.What   have  been  some  of your   personal  favorite  releases  over the  years?And   are  their   any  upcoming  releases  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

 I feel like a father to all my releases and like a father I love them all for what they are even when they annoy me at times. Since I have returned from a well deserved time out in January 2014 (This time without bothering to change the name...) there has been a steady stream of 24 releases so far which is more than I managed to release in the entire decade before. Of course people should watch out for all my releases as well as those of my darling wife through WITCHES BREW. :)

5.What  are  some  things  you  look  for   when  signing  and  releasing  a  band? And  are  you  still  on the   look  out  for  new  bands  to  work  with  or  is  the   Barbarian  Wrath Rec  roster  full  at  this  time?

I want to be surprised. The big cancer of today is predictability. Be that movies, books or bands, if I already know how things will end 10 minutes in, why bother ? Of course a band may still be entertaining in a live situation (Usually because I drink them better...) but why would I bother to release something by those guys. It's sometimes rough to have to tell that to people and not all take it gracefully either but it's my damn money and I decide what to spend it on :) I'm always looking for bands who manage to make me perk up. It doesn't happen often anymore since I'm a jaded old bastard but it does happen and when it does I usually find a way to place such a band in my roster.

6.Do  you  run  the  label  by  yourself  or do  you   have  some  help  from  friends or  family?  Would  you   have  any  advice  to  the readers  who  might  be  thinking  of  starting  a  distro  or  a label  themselves?

I have help. My wife does all the tedious background work so I can concentrate on signing bands and smoking cigars. Which suits me just fine, hehehe. Seriously though, since I have a full time job besides running BW and she doesn't it makes sense that she runs the distro and her own label WITCHES BREW. The distro is exclusively hers and she decides what to carry. Usually she goes for the more exotic stuff (as in from an exotic place, not an exotic mix of musical styles with a hint of Metal as an afterthought...). Seeing that there are more distros than buying fans in Germany and they all carry the same stuff I think she's right trying to stick out and do something original for a change.

 7. BG   are  you  currently   looking  for   new  labels  or  bands  to  work and  trade  with?  If  yes  what  styles  of  metal  do  you  carry   in your  distro?

As I just typed, I always look for new stuff that I find impressive and surprising. All distro questions go to my wife :)


8. BG   you   live  in  the  metal  filled  country  of  Germany  what  is  your  opinion  of the German metal  scene  over  the  years to  present  day?

I think Germany is vastly overrated. I'm sick of Germans strutting around like their shit don't stink and all they really do is buy what glossy magazines serve them and treck to Wacken every year. There are real people besides me of course (quite a few actually) but this picture of Germany being the great Metal nation is inherently wrong. You don't see any Metalheads on the streets and when you do they won't talk to you because they don't like (or, more likely don't know) the band on the shirt you're wearing. So, as far a scene (as in people working together to achieve a common goal) goes, Germany is burnt and salted ground. If you count the number of role-playing fools who'll simply consume whatever glossy magazines tell them to, we got a few million of those.

9.Who  are  your   all-time  favorite   German  bands? And  are  their   any  new  bands  that  you  feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?

All time favorite German band... hmmm.... Nope, I don't really have a favorite band but I can list you favorite albums by German bands. The thing is, every band seems to come to a point eventually where they lose me. For instance, I worship AVENGERs "Prayers Of Steel" album but I find RAGE just barely tolerable even though it's the same people who wrote those songs and recorded the album.
I can't tell you about new bands because I'm trying to sign them and I don't want any competition.
10.Besides  bands  are  their   any  good  labels  or distro's  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out   soon?

I feel that WITCHES BREW get's far to little attention. There is a bunch of fucking brilliant bands there continously releasing jewels of Metal and WB get neither glory nor sales for it and it's a bloody shame.

 11.Do  you  still  try to  go  out  to   local  shows  or do you  prefer  to  stay  in?

I still go to shows when I can though mostly I go to small festivals. We got an entire string of those that we go to every year. Seeing a cool band whom you previously had not known is the high point of every festival. Local shows to me are going to N�rnberg or M�nchen which both are 1 hour trips. Really local shows don't exist because my area is pretty much exclusively settled by the types I described in question # 8.

12.When  not   working  on  label  business   what  do  you  enjoy  doing  in  your   free  time?

What is this "free time" you speak about...?

 13.In  your   opinion  what  is  the  best  and  worst  thing  about  the  underground  metal  scene  today?  And  what  does  underground  metal  mean  to  you?

The best and worst thing is the internet and computers in general and for pretty much the same reason. Life has sped up incredibly since the 90s and everybody has access to everything. Underground to me means to do something for passion with monetary gain being a nice side effect should it happen, but not a driving force. Which is the exact reason why I never tried going "pro". I enjoy the freedom of releasing whatever I want, I don't have to worry about sales because the money to pay for our beer comes from a different source.

14.Were  can  the  readers  find   Barbarian  Wrath   news  and  releases to   purchase?

There are a number of social media pages for the label that I keep up to date, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, the usual. Just type "Barbarian Wrath" in a search engine and you'll get 3 pages of links :)
As for buying my releases, the first and foremost spot to do so is WITCHES BREW. Besides German postage being rather cheap even for worldwide shipping she has a constant stream of other releases going through her distro so you have to be deaf and blind (Which, apparently you're not or is this text in Braille, eh ?) to not find something interesting.
In the USA (and North America) we are officially distributed by HELL'S HEADBANGERS and in Japan (and East Asia) by ROCK STAKK and we are looking for other partners in territories not yet covered.

15.Thank  you  BG   for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this   interview  out  do  you   have  any  final  words  for the  readers?

You're welcome :) I haven't done one of those in quite a while so I enjoy the chance to talk. Well, type :D As a final word I would ask you all to give small bands and labels a chance and look beyond the circle jerk you find in your magazines. It's worth it. Trust me.
