Q & A

Currently Unsigned: The Kraken

The second of our features on independent metal bands takes us to Adelaide, where something gargantuan is stirring...

We love big things at Metal as Fuck. Big noisy things, preferably, so what could be more bill-fitting than a heavy metal Kraken?

Currently Unsigned: Malakyte

In the first of our season of interviews with independent metal bands, we have a chat with Aussie Thrashers Malakyte...

Greetings, and many thanks for kicking off our latest season of q & as! Who are you, and what role do you play in the band?

Neil Turbin: "To say there are only four big thrash bands is an elitist mentality"...

The man who co-wrote Metal Thrashing Mad takes part in our Metal Thrashing May celebrations!

Neil Turbin is one of Metal as Fuck's favourite vocalists.

Invertia's Dave Coppola: "Thrash is in the hearts of those that do it well"

Creating Industrial black metal may be Dave's day job - but he still loves a bit o'thrash...

Metal Thrashing May may well nearly be done, but we're still getting people ready willing and able to submit to our thrash grilling! Dave, thanks for being part of this!

Sam Bean of The Senseless: "Give me a serious song trying to bust some fucking heads!"

WARNING: Megadeth fans of a sensitive disposition turn back now!

Hello Sam, welcome to Metal as Fuck. We're talking thrash, which is good as you seem to have some strident thoughts on the subject! First of, the Big Four, what do you think? Who'd be in yours?

Truth Corroded's Jason North: "There is no better feeling than yelling SLAYER!!!! as loud as possible"...

When it comes to thrash, Jason North knows his onions, so we thought we'd better give him the chance to share his thoughts on the subject...

Truth Corroded have, over the last few years, forged a reputation for themselves as one of Australia's leading thrash outfits, so we really couldn't not involve them in our Metal Thrashing May acti

Greg Burgess of Allegaeon: "Every time we play the bay, the local bands are always amazing to me"...

More raps for Kreator, but a thumbs down for Metallica...

Hello Mr Burgess - welcome to Metal as Fuck! Thanks for taking part in our 30 years of thrash celebrations. To the questions!

Witchgrinder's Travis Everett: 'Thrash is an amazing style that will never die"

You probably know Travis best in his role as vocalist/guitarist in Melbourne's Witchgrinder. But today he becomes Travis Everett - thrash pundit...

Greeting Travis, and welcome to Metal as Fuck! Thanks for getting involved in this month's look back at thirty years of thrash metal.

Claim the Throne's Dysie: "Scott Ian's stomp slays all!"

Everyone knows Dysie - guitarist of Claim the Throne, driving force behind Soundworks Touring, et cetera etcetera... but do you know what the great man thinks about thrash metal? Read on and find out!

Greetings Dysie, and welcome to MaF!  Thanks for being the latest metal identity to share their thoughts on the last 30 years of thrash metal.

Blood Label's Kenneth Klitte Jensen: "Thrash revival bands? Cheap knock offs!"

The Danish vocalist takes us for a spin round his version of the thrash metal world...

Greetings, Kenneth, and welcome to Metal as Fuck! Thanks for taking part in our thirty years of thrash celebration!
