How do you feel about the mass closure of small venues in the UK?

Whoah, how did that happen?  It happens a lot in the states too, my prediction is people are going to have to go back and do more DIY kind of shows again.  There’s going to be a mid to large influx house shows, warehouse shows, basement shows or ‘parties’.  I don’t know though, I really hope that doesn’t happen for death metal and to the scene because if people have nowhere to play and for bands the ultimate goal...

Otep has been ?yola-link-is-coming=true a firm fixture in the metal world for quite some time building somewhat of a cult following around the world. We caught up with Otep Shamaya herself to talk about the new album 'Generation Doom' which is out now.

We caught up with Dustin From Walls of Jericho who have just released their new album 'No One Can Save You From Yourself'

M: How would you compare the music industry now to when you first entered it?

How did it feel to play here today?                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Fucking good. It’s been a while. Last time was two years ago, that’s a long time for us. 


Did you always want to be musicians?

Yes. I had a baby drum kit on top of a cupboard when I was a little kid.

How do you feel about how the day went?

Matt : It went well, I think it’s been really good it’s been really good for black metal in London. We had 8 UK bands on  and we’ve managed to make a serious dent in the underworld. We haven’t sold it out but we’ve made a serious dent in it so yeh absolutely  its been...
