Playing Toronto’s newest venue, The Queen Elizabeth Theatre, on September 30, 2009 to a sold out crowd was UK’s Porcupine Tree, whose sound can only be described as progressive, experimental, psychedelic metal. Spencer Matulaitis had a chance to sit down with bassist (among other things) Colin Edwin. They chatted about the new album, the variety of sounds the band produces, their career so far and what the future holds for Porcupine Tree.

On tour with The Black Dahlia Murder and Children of Bodom was Athens, Ohio thrashers, Skeletonwitch. When the Blood Drunk tour hit up the Sound Academy in Toronto, ON on Saturday September 26, 2009, Spencer Matulaitis caught up with guitarists, Scott Hedrick and Nate Garnette, to talk about the new album, Canadian beer, touring, awesome sponsors and much more in this hilarious interview.

Few bands can really rock out anymore quite like Wolfmother can. Combining all the best elements of classic rock and metal, Wolfmother made it huge in 2005 and 2006 with their debut self-titled album. After a lot of touring, some internal turmoil and a lengthy period of time off, the band is back led by lead singer, guitarist and overall mastermind Andrew Stockdale.
