Dean, Deathcall on Skulls of Wrath

Image
Welcome to Skulls of Wrath.

In todays Audio Segment I have my interview with Dean, from Dunedin Death Metal band Deathcall.

It was a bit of a odd situation, as when I initially called Dean for an interview it was over a month ago- prior to the new album -or even details- being released, and even before their performance at Satanfest 2017 in Christchurch.

STAY TUNED throughout the interview as we address this issue....

Deathcall recently released a brand new full length album "Eternal Darkness", available on all good music services. The album is somewhat of an Old-School-Death-Metal-inspired gem. The recording quality is top notch and really lets the band show off their chops. It's definitely a record to check out if you're a death metal / old school death metal or even NZ metal fan!



As of early to mid December 2017, the band will be appearing at Short Blast to Oblivion at the end of December 2017 …

Micheal Keene (The Faceless) discusses new album months before release.

Image
Hi,
Prior to the illustrious "Skulls of Wrath", I ran "Heavy Metal Wanaka" and through that podcast I had the opportunity to speak with Micheal Keene from The Faceless in about April 2017, talking about their (ill-fated) upcoming NZ/OZ tour.

During that interview, progress of the then untitled new album was discussed, and as we are now at the point when the album is actually being released today, I thought it would be interesting to revisit that discussion.
