Bad Seed Rising - Interview
August 24, 2015 (via Skype)


Bad Seed Rising is a four-piece rock outfit from Baltimore (also known as Charm City) that has already checked off some damn impressive bucket list items. Youngest band ever signed to Roadrunner Records (home of bands like Rush, Dream Theater, and Opeth)? Yep, did that. Nationwide tours with some of the biggest names in the business? Yep, did that, too. Has a song on the soundtrack of a summer blockbuster? And yep, again. These rockers might all be teenagers, but that doesn’t detract from their relentless dedication to music.

Leaves' Eyes Interview 2015
August 8, 2015 (via Skype)

Liv Kristine has a special place in Sonic Cathedral’s heart, since she was one of our earliest interview guests. Back in 2003, we interviewed Liv at a time when her split with Theatre of Tragedy was still a raw wound; she and Alex were newlyweds; and Leaves’ Eyes were a fledgling band that had not yet released an album. Now, 12 years down the road, Leaves’ Eyes are on the verge of releasing their sixth studio album, King Of Kings (via their new label, AFM Records) and heading out for another European tour.

Once Human Interview
by Robin Stryker July 11, 2015 (via phone)

 

Once Human is a new metal outfit from Los Angeles fronted by American-born/Australian-raised screamer, Lauren Hart. Originally, producer Logan Mader (ex-Machine Head, ex-Soulfly) intended to stay behind the scenes, and build the band around Lauren’s vocals and guitar work. But their musical chemistry reignited his desire to take up his mighty flying V, after a 12-year hiatus from live shows. Once Human’s debut album, The Life I Remember, will be released on 4 September 2015 via earMUSIC, a week after they begin their tour with Fear Factory.

Caterina Mix - Chaos Magic Interview
June 26, 2015 (via Skype)

Chaos Magic is the solo project of Chilean vocalist, Caterina Nix, and former Stratovarius composer and guitarist, Timo Tolkki, who wrote and produced the album to showcase Caterina’s vocal talent. Those of you who have been following Timo Tolkki’s Avalon Angels of the Apocalypse rock opera got an introduction to her voice on the tracks “High Above Of Me” and “Angels Of The Apocalypse”, alongside Floor Jansen, Simone Simons, and Elize Ryd. Others may know Caterina as the vocalist of AghonyA, whose Oxygen album is a mighty nice slab of melodic metal.
