Kalmah: At one with metal and nature
What can you do all day when you live in the North of Finland where the nights are lonely and the swamps are muggy? Exactly right, hunting and writing songs and at least the latter recently led to the release of Kalmah´s already 6th album. On 12 Gauge the band once again managed to give the listener a better understanding of what swamp metal really is about. Guitarist and band mastermind Antti Kokko tells you a bit more about the brumous background to the whole story. >> more/mehr

Katatonia - Jonas Renkse: I want to believe in ghosts
Katatonia’s vocalist Jonas is a rare luxury to have for a face to face interview, just as rarely his band is performing live nowadays. Nevertheless, for over a decade Katatonia remains one of the most significant dark metal acts of contemporary metal culture, yet it is still surrounded by some mysterious mist... what is going on there after all?

There is plenty of information on Mr Renkse’s musical engagements, yet who is Jonas actually and what kind of character does it take to create what we hear as Katatonia?
