Interviews: MI Metal
Hear It from the Bands
Norwegian Gothic is an album that explores so many genres, it’s truly difficult to tack it under any one label. It’s an exploration into previously uncharted territory more than anything else
Imagine coming to consciousness somewhere in a dark, dank, crumbling tunnel. There are hundreds of insects, spiders, centipedes, and more crawling all over you. That’s the impression I get from the swarming riffs.
The track starts out with belligerence, as Void’s bellows hit the listener square in the chest, and then devolves and evolves into a racing, grinding, destructive cacophony of purpose.
“One small world, in decline.” – In Defiance
The sound is fresh, but certifiably Stortregn.
Who is currently doing a better blend of anti-music? Go ahead…I’ll wait.
“Raw black metal is not for everyone, of course, but its strength lies in its ambiguity.”
You Can’t Go Back is heavy! Sometimes that means musically heavy, but throughout the entire album, it means emotionally heavy.
Fresh into the new year I was able to have a brief chat with Jackie Perez Gratz of Grayceon about what releasing an album in 2020 was like, a bit of history about the band, and what all live music fans are looking forward to - being together to experience music again....
Detroit and thrash metal are a natural pairing. It follows that the city responsible for some of the loudest and fastest cars ever made would produce human beings with a propensity for loud and fast music.
