With the release of their self-titled debut, Die Hard Till Death is preparing to take the metal world by storm. I recently caught up with guitarist Stevil Helmer to discuss the release and the band. Combining groove-laden, balls-out metal with a ton of aggression, DHTD have created a record that metalheads everywhere will surely dig. Here’s what Helmer had to say.

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.

I recently had a chance to speak with guitarist Robby Rigsbee about his band Zach Williams and The Reformation and their new disc, A Southern Offering. The moment you pop this album into your player you’ll immediately be transported back to the mid-Seventies when southern rock ruled the airwaves. Not only do Zach Williams and The Reformation pay homage to the masters of the genre, (Lynyrd Skynrd, Molly Hatchet, Joe Cocker), they also add their own sound to the mix, making this an interesting and enjoyable release.

John Falls, lead vocalist for the alternative metal band Egypt Central, recently spoke with me about the group’s newest release, White Rabbit. This is the band’s second full-length offering and their maturity is evident in the songwriting and playing. The band is currently winding their way around the U.S. on tour, so check them out live. Here’s what Falls had to say about White Rabbit.
