Music knows no boundaries. A statement that can very well help the lay listener understand why Sitar Metal works as well as it does. On this episode of Horns Up, the virtuoso behind Sitar Metal, Rishabh Seen talks to us about his journey so far, and the effort, learning and work it takes to marry the two worlds.

Gatecreeper

This past year has been a great year for metal especially death metal. A quick glance at the reviews on The Metal Wanderlust in recent months will demonstrate it. At the start of this month, one more release got added to the list, Deserted by American death metal act Gatecreeper. The band play a potent blend of 80’s Florida and 90’s Swedish death metal.

I spoke to frontman Chase Manson about their sound, Deserted and more while he was touring Europe with Spirit Adrift.

Rogga Johansson (Paganizer)

Tower of the Morbid, the upcoming album from Swedish death metal act Paganizer is their 11th full length album. The album was highly rated by the writers on The Metal Wanderlust who reviewed it recently. One writer even wondered how Rogga Johansson managed “to churn out all that amount of Death Metal and actually live a life aside from it too?”

I caught up with the noted musician to ask him about it and a lot more.
