The interview train keeps on a-rollin'! Next up are Dizygote, a father/son duo from Cape Coral, FL. As someone invested in the tradition of passing music down to younger generations, I was initially intrigued by the story behind the unique dynamic at play--but then I queued up their bandcamp and let those live tracks roar. Now I'm in it for the damn tunes, 'cuz let me tell you: despite being (seemingly) limited in terms of manpower, songwriting and technical prowess certainly isn't an issue. Demonstrating a remarkably full and dynamic sound, this duo sounds, well, like anything but.
Needless to say, we were tickled pink to chat with the outfit in question. Big thanks to Ned and Ethan of
Dizygote for taking the time! As always, we're deeply honored that cool bands are willing to sit down and churn our such thoughtful answers. When you're done reading this, head on over and check out 'em out.
Wraith's excellent Absolute Power officially hits the streets today, and...and I'm not sure what to say about it that hasn't already been said. Thus, in a stunning display of self-plagiarism, please let me remind you that: "Absolute Power is--besides a successful sophomore release--a killer slab of bombastic, aggressive, and otherwise heartfelt heavy metal. It's a certified headbanger, and remains one of the most fun releases I've had the pleasure of reviewing this year."
Needless to say, this particular Villager was quite excited to chat with the thrashers in question. Our eternal thanks to Wraith for A. being the ass-kickers they are, and B. willingly subjecting themselves to our interrogation. Let's get to it, shall we?
What more to say about the maniacal Soul Grinder? Firstly, I'd recommend giving our review of their latest treatise, entitled The Prophecy of Blight, a healthy gander. Then I'd recommend throwing said album on for a glorious spin (or three.) That should pretty much tell you all you need to know. Soul Grinder are swiftly on their way to becoming the technicolor corpsepaint'd face of heavy metal in the modern era. Let's leave it at that.
On to the gratitude! We Villagers were honored to have had the opportunity to speak with the voice of Soul Grinder herself, the one and only April "Prilzor" Dimmick. As always, we appreciate the thoughtful answers, and April, as ye shall soon witness, provides said answers in spades. Special shout-out to that MASSIVE list of bands to check out. There's some goddamn gems in there.
And so, without further ado:
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
What are ye
