Seemless: Interview with Derek Kerswill

Raw and heartfelt though it was, Seemless’ self-titled debut was just the primordial ooze from whence would crawl the band that delivers What Have We Become to the masses this week. Their first effort for Equal Vision (unless, of course, you count the reissue of the aforementioned self-titled), it boasts …

Lamb of God: Interview with Chris Adler

If anyone is poised to fill Pantera’s huge, empty shoes, it’s Virginia’s Lamb Of God. It’s as though this quintet’s whole career has been leading up to this point—the release of their fourth full-length, second major label effort, Sacrament. But despite the fact that everyone is calling them “the …

James Gang: Interview with Joe Walsh

Long before he was known as the life of the party (on and off-stage) with his gonzo guitar-slinger persona as a solo artist and with The Eagles (permanently making his mark with such FM rock classics as “Hotel California,” “Life In The Fast Lane,” “In The City,” and “Life’s Been …

Lacuna Coil: Interview with Cristina Scabbia

The day after Italy won the World Cup, I was scheduled to talk with Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil. I somewhat followed the World Cup games and had my bets on Brazil, but nonetheless, I’m happy France didn’t win. And I think some fellow Americans might agree with me on …

Rise Against: Interview with Tim McIlrath

Where will you be in July 2007? You don’t know. I don’t know. Tim McIlrath, vocalist for Rise Against, knows where he’ll be. He’ll be on tour.

Incidentally, that’s also where he is now, and it’s where he (and the rest of the band) will be in between the two. …

Ministry: Interview with Al Jourgensen

Few bands can retain an aggressive, mad-as-hell stance for a quarter-century. Despite a career of stylistic experimentation, lineup changes, vacillating critical support and drug abuse, Ministry have remained—scathed, yes, but wiser from the wear. Spurred on by, of all things, George W. Bush, Al Jourgensen is currently enjoying what might …

Coheed and Cambria @ Hammerstein

What do you get when you take two up-and-coming rock acts with dramatically different musical styles and put them together on a co-headlining tour? Do you get the best of both worlds or an inevitable disaster? Well, this was the issue that accompanied the recent Coheed And Cambria/Avenged Sevenfold tour. …
