Happy to share some hometown love!
Being based in London means I struggle to keep up with all the bands my hometown produces. Sure, I have my brother and a few good mates that share and let me know who has a great sound from time to time. But in this case it was pure luck that I stumbled across Make Them Suffer, a five piece Deathcore band, on Twitter and when I saw they were from Perth I just had to give them a listen, plus since they released Worlds Apart only just last year, I thought I'd do one better and share my findings!
Where the fuck has this band been all my life?
About a month ago while researching something for either a review or a Roundup story, I discovered a genre that immediately interested me: Japanese Metalcore. It turns out JMC is batshit crazy and awesome, they have taken a style and pushed it even further than I thought possible. The sad thing is, it barely gets any attention in the mainstream media around the world. I intend to change that, and I’ll begin with probably the most well known group of this sub-genre: Crossfaith and their new album, EX_MACHINA.
When Gioele from Celluloid Nightmares and Zona Horror (go follow his awesome facebook groups!) asked me if I wanted to interview David Howard Thornton, the man behind Art the Clown from Terrifier, I jumped straight in! First of all I actually really enjoyed this flick so I had a few questions I was dying to ask, plus this opportunity made me feel a bit like a real journalist hehe... Did I get nominated for a Pulitzer yet?
