2021-12-07 : Interview with Antim Sanskar

2021-12-07 : Interview with La Stanza delle Maschere

2021-12-07 : Interview with Apostle Of Solitude
US band Apostle Of Solitude have been plying their Trad Doom sound for nearly 20 years, seemingly finding more favour in European territories than their homeland. As their 6th album, ''Until The Darkness Goes', sees release, Comrade Aleks asked drummer Corey about that, and more.
2021-12-07 : Interview with Abysmal Grief
Surely, Abysmal Grief need no introduction, yet somehow we've never carried an interview with this foundational Italian Doom band. Fortunately, Comrade Aleks has rectified that with this conversation with co-founder Regen Graves, as the new album 'Funeral Cult of Personality' sees release.
2021-09-14 : Interview with Wheel

Suffer Yourself have come a long way since their origin as a solo project in Poland, 10 years ago, and new album 'Rip Tide' is another step in their evolution. Founder Stan Govorukha talks to Comrade Aleks about it here.
2021-09-14 : Interview with Flame, Dear Flame

2021-09-14 : Interview with The Plague Physicians

2021-08-02 : Interview with Forever Autumn
Those who know Forever Autumn just as an acoustic, atmospheric Doom act might be surprised to learn how much Black Metal influence also pervades their world. Well, they put that foremost with latest EP 'Hail the Forest Dark', and even roped in a certain Mr. Aaron Stainthorpe to help out with it. I thought that on its own would be of interest to Doom fans, so here's me talking to my friend Autumn about that and more!
2021-07-02 : Interview with Lament Christ
Peru isn't really noted for its profusion of Doom bands, but there are some to be found - and Lament Christ, with their foundation in the early '90s, have been flying that flag for a long time now.
