“Fuck yeah! Now this is NILE!”

That’s how frontman, guitarist, and chief songwriter Karl Sanders defines Nile‘s latest album, Vile Nilotic Rites. And we at the Horn Up Podcast agree. In a crisp chat, we spoke to Sanders about the renewed spirit and energy that encapsulates the album, and try to figure out the secret sauce behind an incredible work ethic.

Gatecreeper

leave a comment »

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.

Kryptos are one of India’s oldest surviving metal bands. Over the past 2 decades they have released 5 albums and toured across Europe where they have built a rabid following.

In a candid chat frontman Nolan Lewis spoke to us about how the band has evolved over the years, their latest release Afterburner, building a fan base in Europe and what it means to be Indian on the heavy metal scene.

Rogga Johansson (Paganizer)

leave a comment »

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.

Tomb Mold – Planetary Clairvoyance Review

leave a comment »

It has taken me a while to write this review, the primary reason being that I had high expectations for Planetary Clairvoyance, as I enjoyed Tomb Mold’s previous release Manor of Infinite Forms. I had described the album as “A slamming debut full length from the Canadian act. I was reminded of my favourite Death Metal records from the 90’s while listening to it. A must listen for Death Metal fans”
