Interview : Author Dayal Patterson

Dayal Patterson's book, Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult was one of my top reads for 2014 and it was an honour to interview the man behind it. Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult presents, without a doubt, the definitive history of black metal. The mind behind the tome is Dayal Patterson, a writer, photographer… Continue reading Interview : Author Dayal Patterson

Interview : Cartoonist Kim Holm

When you read the name Kim Holm, Inferno Festival will undoubtedly come to mind. His ambitious venture of sketching bands performing live at the yearly metal event in Oslo is an art project like no other. His atmospheric, yet disorderly style is instantly recognisable. Holm's work has graced the covers of a number of metal… Continue reading Interview : Cartoonist Kim Holm

Interview : Helena Perminger Of Sphæra

I fell upon contemporary art and jewellery emporium Sphæra while browsing through the list of creatives attending the DRK MSS autumn market that took place in October in Stockholm. The attraction to Swedish artist Helena Perminger's enigmatic jewellery was immediate and powerful. I knew that I had to talk to her, and hear the stories… Continue reading Interview : Helena Perminger Of Sphæra

Interview : Christine Linde Of Tomarum

To come across the work of Christine Linde/Tomarum was an absolute joy. Inspired by two of my favourite artists Theodor Kitteslsen and John Bauer, Linde creates deeply atmospheric folk art. Her work enables the observer to dip out of the human world for a time, and individually connect with what lies beyond. I'm delighted and… Continue reading Interview : Christine Linde Of Tomarum

Interview : Cyclic Press

  Cyclic Press is the new publishing division of highly respected record label and mail order distributor Cyclic Law, the label responsible for releasing the music of some of the finest ritualistic and ambient artists creating today, including Lamia Vox and Northaunt. I was extremely excited when I discovered about the launch of Cyclic Press,… Continue reading Interview : Cyclic Press

Interview : Ragnar Bragason, Director Of Metalhead (Málmhaus)

Films like Metalhead come along once in a blue moon...if that. This portrayal of an emotionally wounded young woman, who finds solace from her grief in heavy metal, is one of the strongest, most poignant films I've ever encountered. I feel exceptionally proud to feature this interview with the director of Metalhead, Ragnar Bragason. When… Continue reading Interview : Ragnar Bragason, Director Of Metalhead (Málmhaus)

Interview : Black Metal Project Bròn

I regularly find myself close to shutting down my Facebook account, and abandoning my timeline forever...but then I'll come across a project like Bròn, and decide against it, thinking 'what if I miss out on learning about other great bands?' I'm often scatterbrained when on Facebook, and my attention is spread far too thinly. But… Continue reading Interview : Black Metal Project Bròn

Interview : UKBM Band Arx Atrata

The black metal scene in the United Kingdom has, in my opinion, only a select number of bands which do the genre justice. I've found myself edging away from certain acts and was beginning to lose hope that I'd come across another band which actually 'did it' for me. Fortunately, a friend randomly sent me a You… Continue reading Interview : UKBM Band Arx Atrata

Interview : Alicia Hannah Naomi

I came across Alicia Hannah Naomi last year while I was browsing Occulter. I was immediately taken with the stunningly raw nature of her jewellery designs, and have been obsessed with her work ever since. You're a successful contemporary jewellery designer and style blogger. How does it feel to get up every day and know… Continue reading Interview : Alicia Hannah Naomi
