One-man black metal projects typically have a bad reputation for being solipsistic and goddamned-boring-as-hellishly “old school fuck-modern-metal-esque raw black metal”. Three-man or more however, almost always bring about a conflict of interests amongst band members after some time, or always effectively end up being the frontman’s “solo project” with the other members being there simply to provide instrumental support. What about two-man teams then?

Dave Tejas, vocalist for the punk band Krum Bums, spoke with me recently about the group’s latest disc, Cut The Noose. This is a band that has been around for a while now and it’s good to see them still releasing records and touring. They’ll be on tour this summer alongside Toxic Holocaust. Here’s what Tejas had to say.
