On a mad humid Saturday June 2nd in Toronto, Canada the amazing Tour and Loathing tour dropped by our local venue the Opera House. Before the show, PureGrainAudio’s Spencer managed to catch up with All That Remains lead singer Phil Labonte and talked with him in brief about their coming European and Mexican tour dates, the progress on their future album, and of course… videos games!
During a stop over in Guelph, Ontario in Canada while on tour with Lamb of God, Trivium and Machine Head, French death metallers Gojira were nice enough to afford us an interview.
One of the fastest growing metal bands in all of the United States is Mastodon. Mastodon is a group of four guys who play some very hard progressive heavy metal. The band has just recently released their brand new album titled Blood Mountain which has been receiving rave reviews for its cool concept of conquering and surpassing obstacles. In its seven year existence, Mastodon has become known as a working class band, playing hundreds of shows every year and touring almost non-stop, bringing their music to people all across the world. Recently, we caught up with Mastodon’s lead singer and guitarist, Brent Hinds, to talk about the new record and how the band formed, among other things.
