Interview conducted by: The Voiceless Apparition
2021 is about to get a whole lot more frozen. There are many new bands in the death metal genre garnering plenty of praise of praise, and rightfully so, but I can't think of another band recieving as much critical praise as Frozen Soul...also rightfully so! Death metal isn't typically known for its frosty and frozen atmosphere and lyrical themes, but that's what Frozen Soul are here to do. Last year these masters of the cold signed with Century Media Records, something I was ecstatic about. It's amazing to see a band get signed to a major label so quickly in their career, having only existed for two years now and only releasing one demo through the ever fantastic Maggot Stomp.
2021 is going to be the year for Frozen Soul to take over the underground extreme metal scene. I was extremely lucky to have been given the opportunity to interview guitarist Michael Munday. We talked signing with Century Media Records, how hardcore influences their songwriting, death metal, and much more. Enjoy!
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:
Reign of Terror is, at this stage, no stranger to the Sleeping Village. In the past, we have both reviewed the death-metal worshiping outfit's debut, and premiered a single from their sophomore effort. To complete the trifecta, we're hitting you all with an interview. Big thanks to Jereth Fewings--Reign of Terror's instrumentalist and stoic UK contingent--for reaching out in the first place, for the sincere answers, and for the ridiculously quick turnaround.
For the uninitiated, Reign of Terror play brutal death metal and worship at the blood-stained altar of acts such as Deicide, Hypocrisy, Death, Bolt Thrower, and Dethklok. You know, the good stuff. These guys have riffs and heart galore...and they somehow manage to churn out new material at an increasingly alarming and impressive rate. Without further ado: we're pleased to introduce Jereth Fewings of Reign of Terror!
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
