“[M]e losing my voice after three songs, giving the guys lyric sheets, and Tommy and Chris taking over and singing the show. . . So, fucking proud to play with guys who can handle a thing like that and still get the vibe for a Sabaton show.”
Italian power metallers Altair pushed the envelope recently with the progressively-tinged, but most importantly, excellent new album Descending: A Devilish Comedy. Riding the shockwave of success from that release, The Metal Observer thought this was a good time to catch up with bassist and main-man Luca Scalabrin to see how elated the atmosphere is in the Altair camp…
The vocalist of one of Australia’s oldest and most respected heavy metal acts talks about Dreadnaught’s extensive career, their new album Caught The Vultures Sleeping, the state of the Australian heavy music scene and the virtues of Thin Lizzy.
Guest interviewer, Antoine Richard (operator of Metantoine’s Magickal Realm), sits down with Jean-Pierre Abboud, an American musician known for his involvement with the excellent heavy metallers Borrowed Time and, more recently, the Canadian epic doomsters of Funeral Circle. I’m glad he took the time to answer these questions.
