Triosphere 2014 Interview
(via Skype)


Triosphere

 

The snowy reaches of Trondheim, Norway is home to many fine metal bands, and the four-piece outfit, Triosphere, continues to stake its place within the flourishing music scene locally and internationally. Fans have had a long, four-year wait for Triosphere’s third album, The Heart Of the Matter, but good things come to those who wait. The new album adds symphonic elements (sparingly) and a surprisingly tender ballad to the existing melodic power metal base layered with progressive elements and a strong rock sensibility. However, the heart Triosphere’s sound remains the distinctive voice of Ida Haukland.

Mercy Isle Interview
Conducted live and via Skype at the Club Tavern
Middleton, Wisconsin

Mercy Isle

 

Mercy Isle is a new music project in it’s infancy from here in the state of Wisconsin and elsewhere. It had an interesting birthplace, one I think most of you will be familiar with. And, it is composed of some of my personal favorite musicians, in this country and elsewhere. A lot of other serious musicians are familiar with them too and have long appreciated their talent. I’ve been screaming both in person and in print for this project for a number of years as have others so no one is more excited about its potential than I am.

White Empress Interview
(via Skype)


White Empress

 

Paul Allender originally planned for White Empress to be a side project -- a band into which he could infuse the rebellious and raw spirit of metal, while Cradle of Filth took a break between albums. That break did not materialize, and Paul left Cradle of Filth to devote himself to White Empress. With an ambitious vision for the band, he set out to find a vocalist and cadre of musicians to bring the Empress to life in all her furious glory.
