Interview    with  Kaeck   done  by   Patrick 









  
1.Hails  when  did you  all first  meet? Was   it  long  before  you  all  formed  Kaeck? How  did you  choose the  name  for the  band does  it  have  a  special  meaning? 

Agitator: we just met each other in person all together when the album was already out, just a few weeks ago. I know Chaos for years know and the same with Oovenmeester, but we did not met all three of us together.  

Oovenmeester: i met Chaos for the first time when began Kaeck. But i have known Agitator for years. Kaeck is a terrible god i invented as part of the lyrical theme of the band. It's kind of a red line through the lyrics. 





  
2.What  is  the  current  line up  for  Kaeck?For  the  readers  who  have  never  heard  Kaeck's   music  how  would  you  best   describe  it? 
  
Agitator: Black war metal. 

 Chaos:   Oovenmeester did the lyrics and voice. I've read some reviews stating we have 2 on vocals, because of his crazy style changes, but its only him. 
I think Kaeck sounds like Darkthrone, old Gehenna and Archgoat put in a blender.   







  
3.The  band  is   getting  ready  to  release  their  debut  cd   "Stormkult"   through  the  German  label  Folter  Rec.  how  did you  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label? 


 Chaos: I was signed to Folter with Sammath since 98. I left Folter Hammerheart two years ago. Since I have always had great contact with Joerg I was damn pleased he was interested to release Kaeck. Especially since the band was only 6 months old, and we only send him 2 tracks. Very proud of this, and glad to also be back with Folter.  




4.When  writing  a  new  song  does  the  whole  band take  part  in  the  writing  process  or  does  one  member  usually   write  everything? 
  


Agitator: I make the framework and Chaos writes the riffs. If one of us don’t think it’s good enough, we throw it away.  

 Chaos: We threw away at least 3 tracks and many riffs. If it wasn’t up to standard, delete and move on.  





5.Who  usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  band?What  are  some  subjects the  band  writes  about? 


Oovenmeester: I write all lyrics for Kaeck. The lyrical theme is about visiting and escaping dark crevasses of the mind. All from under the watchfull eye of Kaeck. Sometimes spoken from the first person as a traveller describing his voyage between sanity and madness. Sometimes tormented by his own former deeds or guided into misery by Kaeck. All lyrics within the album are hand written by G.T. Dringenberg.






  
 6.Does  Kaeck   ever  play  "live"   or  do you   prefer to  work  in the  studio? What  have  been  some  of your   most  memorable  shows to date? 
  

Agitator: We only do some exclusive gigs, because we are all very busy with our private live. Most memorable gigs are at under the black sun, playing with my other bands and saw many good gigs of others as well. 


 Chaos:  Not kaeck related, but the best show I have ever seen was Mysticum Baroeg in 96 or 98.  





  
7.Kaeck  comes  out   of the  Netherlands  black metal scene  what  is your   opinion's   of  The  Netherlands  metal  scene? 
  
Agitator: There are some great bands from the Netherlands, Israthoum for example. These guys are really into the music and are getting better every record! Besides we know some real dedicated people form the scene, we don’t really feel like being a part of the scene.

 
Chaos: The Dutch scene is terrible, its been overun by gays and people without legs and down syndrome.

Oovenmeester: It's getting better. I think there are some cool projects and releases coming out every now and then. But there are also some downers here and there, that's true.  





8.Who   are  your  all-time  favorite  bands  coming  out of  The  Netherland's  scene?  Are their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out?  

Agitator: All time favorite bands from the Netherlands? Actually I talked about this yesterday with Hrodulfr (Standvast / Tarnkappe). We concluded  there aren’t really cult bands like for instand Belgius does have (Enthroned, Ancient Rites) in the Netherlands. We have some great death metal bands, but those are not really my favo’s, while I’m mostly pure black metal orientated. If I should name a Dutch act with lots of agression, it would be Shikari Actually. Saw them a few time live and I was intens, although they were more part of the hardcore scene.  


 Chaos: Newer bands one should check out are: Wederganger, Tanr 






  
9.Besides  Kaeck  are  any  of the  members  currently  working  with  any  other  bands  or  solo  projects? 
  
Agitator: Lots of, that’s one of the resons why Kaeck can’t play live that often.  

Oovenmeester: None, i have lots of other non-music projects i;m working on though.





10.What  does  Black metal  mean to you ? 

Chaos: Besides family and work to provide for them, everything.  

Agitator: pride, aggression, power, spiritualism and in a way a form of freedom. 

Oovenmeester: War




  
11.When  not  working  on  band  music  or  business  what  do you  enjoy  doing  in your  free  time?

Agitator: making photo’s and video’s, but a lot off ‘free time’ there isn’t.  

 Chaos: Read a lot of history books, walking in the forest.  Drinking beer, visiting concerts and being an all   

Oovenmeester: I delve a lot into military history, history of mankind and history in general. Beside drinking beer, experiencing good music and having good company around, those are the best things around.







  12.Thank you  for  taking  the  time  to  fill this   interview   out. Do you   have  any  final  words  for  the  readers? 
  
 Chaos:  Support your local black metal merchant!

Interview with Executor Vocals and all instruments for Chaos Altar done by Patrick


1. Hails  Executor  what  gave you  the   idea  to  form    Chaos  Altar ?How  did  you  come  up  with  the   name  for  the  band?


Hails Patrick and Ode To War web-zine!

It started in 2008. I was tired of playing drums in bands I don't completely like. So I decided to form my one man band so I'll be in control of everything.

At first I named it Nir'um'Tuk. Last year, I decided to change the name to something that matches more the music and lyrical theme. I think it speaks for itself: the band is a tribute to the Ancient Chaos.


2.Did  you  plan  to  keep     Chaos  Altar  a  one-man  band  or  have  you  searched  for   new  musicians to  join the band?

As I said, I want this project to be really personal, so no I don't want any musician to join as full part of the band.

However, I want to summon Chaos live, so I recently put a live lineup together. The guys are good friends I've known for a very long time. I don't want to play Chaos Altar music live with people I don't really know.

 

3.If  you  could  work  with  any  musicians{past  or  present}  who  are some  you  would  like to  work with?

I think I answered this question with the previous one! (laughs)

Even if I worship a lot of musicians, who are inspiration source etc, I wouldn't work with any of them, for Chaos Altar though.

 But if you wonder, the first name who comes into my mind is Ihsahn.


 

4.  Chaos  Altar   has  just  released the  debut E.P "And Then You Die"  through  Cold Raw  Rec.  how did  you  come  in  contact  with the  label?
I selected a few underground labels, with a spirit which matches mine. Cold Raw Records were the first who answered me straight up with a fair deal, so I didn't hesitate a long time before putting my trust in them. And I don't regret: all was perfect!

 

5.How  long  did  it  take  for you  to write  and record  the  music  on   "And Then You Die"?

About a year/a year and a half.


6.Your  comrade/friend  Asphodel  wrote  the  lyrics  for the  band  when  did you  first  meet   Asphodel  ?What  are  some  topics/subjects   Asphodel   writes  about? Will  She  work  with you  on   Chaos  Altar's  future  releases?



I've known her for 10 years, and she happens to be my wife. As I said I created Chaos Altar to have my very own personal vision of music, so anyone but her could help me. Since I'm really not great at writing lyrics, it was really natural to entrust this part of the project to her.

She writes about the worship and nostalgia of the primitive Chaos, when earth and nature weren't ruined by the human hand.

With time it naturally evolved to life, death, and the hate for human, all of them!


7.Besides the  new E.P.   "And Then You Die"  do  you   have  any  other   merchandise  available  for the  fans? If  yes  where  can  they  buy  your  releases and  merchandise?


We also have shirts. You can buy it through Cold Raw records (coldrawrecords@gmail.com) or from us (chaosaltar@free.fr)


8.Executor  you  handle  the  guitars  for the  band  when  did  you  get  into  playing the  guitars? Are you  self taught  or  did you  take  lessons  when first  starting  out?

My "first" (and favorite) instrument is drums. I will always be a drummer above all.

I play guitar a little since I'm a kid, but I never took it seriously (before I started my project), so I don't have any skill, either a method of work, or took lessons. I just work my guitar to be able to play my songs, and the few cover I want to make, nothing more!

 
9.Who  are  some  of your   influences/favorite  guitarists?


I think you understood with the previous question that I don't really have any.

 I really like the writing of the guy from Nightbringer, or Mikołaj Żentara from Mgła. And of course Ihsahn I already quoted. But not really for their skill or anything like that, just for their great "riffing".

   But I could list you a LOT of drummers if you want! (laughs)

 
10.I believe you  also  handle the  vocals  for  the  band  when did you  start  growling and screaming? Do you  do  anything  special  to  keep your  voice/throat  healthy?

 

I did some backing vocals in old bands I played with, but I really started in 2008 with Nir'um'Tuk. As for the guitar I don't really have a method or anything. I just try to surround myself with darkness and hate when I record vocals.

  I believe emotions are a lot more important than technic in that type of vocals.

   Some of my best recording sessions for Chaos Altar were done when I had health issues. I was kinda weak but so more hateful. I gave all I had, on some screams I nearly passed out!


11.Executor   you  live  in  the  great  country  of  France  what  is  your  opinion  of  France's  metal  scene?


It's probably underrated, since we have a lot of really great bands but without a lot of exposure I guess.


12.Who  are some  of your  all-time  favorite bands from France? Are  their  any  new  bands  you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?

For the old ones I'd say Mercyless and Agressor.

For the new ones, of course the mighty Necrowretch!!

I could also quote Mourning Dawn, Aosoth, Ritualization, Malmort. If you didn't already you should check out the compilation "WE ARE FRENCH, FUCK YOU" from Triumph Ov Death records, which contains a great selection of French underground bands.


13.Besides  Chaos  Altar   are  you  currently   involved  with  any  other  projects  or  bands? If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  about  them?

I'm currently recording drums for Unholy War upcoming album (black metal from Germany)!

14.Thank  you  Executor   for  taking the  time  to  fill  this  interview   out  do you  have  any  final  words  for  the  readers?

 Hails and thanks to Ode To War  Webzine to give the words to the Great Chaos!!!

Interview  with  Petr  "Blackie" Hosek  vocals  and  guitarist   for   Blackosh   done  by   Patrick







1.Hails  Petr   please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers? When  did  you  first  get  into  metal  music  music?

Hi Patrick!
I started off with garage bands under the influence of the thrash metal scene, then with one playing at dance parties and in 1987 we founded Root. 
  
 
 
 
2.You  formed   Blackosh in  2013  what  gave  you  the   idea  to  form  this  band?How  did  you  decide  on  the  name  of  this  band?

I didn't have an idea for a band name, so I just started using my nickname, not in terms of building a solo career as some people might believe. Just two songs have come out under the name Blackosh so far, on 7 inch splits together with Master's Hammer, and now I am finishing an album to come out this autumn for the German label Iron Bonehead prods.




3.Blackosh has   just  released  their  debut  "Whores,Booze  and  Black metal"  through  the   mighty  Iron  Bonehead  Rec.  how  did  you  come  in  contact  with  this  great  label?
 
I just started watching their activity and liked it extremely. I don't mean strictly the musical stuff, but how well they do it and the appearance of all their goods. And I knew that this the brilliant label that is just ideal for the release of a Blackosh title. I sent some working demos to Patrick Kremer and we agreed on the release.
 
 
4.How  long  did  it  take  you  to  write  the  music  for  the  debut  release?Where  do you  usually  draw  inspiration for  the  lyrics?
 
It takes two years. This is a specific concept of Satanism and Occultism with influences of Czech classics. Czech lyrics are something I mostly come up with as late as possible, in some cases just whatever comes out of my mouth during recording. I get drunk and then it comes naturally. I'm no poet, who would roam around with a notebook in my pocket. 
 






5.I  know  Iron Bonehead  Rec  is  releasing  a  LP.  version  but  are  their  any  plans  to  release  the  debut  on  cd  or  cassette?

The Tape was released as the first. Vinyl will be out in November and CD at the beginning of the new year,
 
 
 
6.Besides  the  debut  release   "Whores,Booze  and  Black metal"   does  the  band  have  any  other  merchandise  available  for  the  fans  of  the  band?

 T-Shirt is available through Satanshop.cz
 
 
 
 
7.When  did you  first  start  singing/screaming  in  bands?Do  you  do  anything  special  to   keep  your  voice and throat  healthy  when  recording?
 
I sang on the records of Crux, Entrails, Cales and some additional vocals in Root. Yes, a lot of booze and smoking.
 
 
8. Petr    you  were   one  of  the  founding  members   of  the   legendary  band  Root. Do  you   have  a  favorite  Root  release? What  about  a  favorite  Root  song?
 
 
 I love all songs and albums from 1987 to 2004.
 
 
 
 
9.Who  are  some  of your   influences/favorite  vocalists?

Quorthon ( a crappy singer as me )
 
 
 
10.Besides  taking  care  of  the  vocal  duties  you  also  handle  the  guitars  at  what  age did  you  become  interested  in   playing  the  guitars?Are   you  self taught  or  did you  take  lessons  when  first  beginning?

 
 
I am a self taught without any lessons. When I was learning to play, of course there were songs by Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden and many others. A year later I started composing my own stuff already and didn't need to copy anyone anymore. 
 
 
 
 
11.Who  are  some  of your   influences/favorite  guitarists? Besides  playing  the guitars  and  handling the  vocals  do  you  currently  play  any  other   instruments?

I don't even really remember and I don't consider it as substantial. It's classic what all say all over again, well known boring names. the first records by Bathory, Sodom, Destruction, Slayer etc.

12. How often do you rehearse?

I hate rehearsing and exercising on the guitar. I record some of the guitar parts without stretching and sometimes also drunk on purpose, so that it sounds dirty and inaccurate.
 
 
 
 
13.Who  are  your  all-time  favorite  Czech Republic  bands?Are   their   any  new  bands  coming  out  of  the   Czech Republic   you   feel  the  readers  should  watch  out  for?
 
I'm not a big expert of the czech scene. Yes, there is a lot of good musicians and great bands.

14.Besides  working  on  the  band  Blackosh   are  you    currently  working  with  any  other   bands? If  yes  please  let  the  readers  know  a  little  about  them?

Now I m working exclusively on Blackosh project, but sometimes I'm doing sound for other bands.
Now we are finishing recording of project Pačess.
 
 
 
 
15. How do you feel about the downloading of music instead of buying albums?

Fine with me, not everyone wants their flat full of junk, in view of the fact that today there are so many bands and few of them are actually worth attention.
Of course the sales have radically decreased and we no longer live off music, but it's just the way it is, no problem. We have no problem with selling our albums. We're doing limited editions which get sold our sooner or later.
But overall the situation is tragic because anyone who has a computer in their bedroom can do music now and the Internet is full of musical garbage, and good music gets often lost. The same thing applies practically to any media.


16.Thank  you  Petr  for  taking  the  time  to  fill  this   interview   out.Do  you   have   any  final   words  for  the   readers?
 
Hello to the readers and thank you for the interview.

IT WAS AT THE AGE OF 12, LIKE EVERYONE, I WAS IN SEARCH OF MY IDENTITY; LOOKING AWAY FROM THE SOCIETY AND ITS THINKING.
ONE OF THE EARLIER BANDS THAT I LISTENED WAS SLAYER, SODOM, DARK ANGEL AND MORBID ANGEL.

3.Invocation  Spells   is  a  two  man  band  have  you  two  discussed  the   possibility  of  adding  more  members to  make  it  a full  band  or do you  prefer  to  work  as  two  piece?

6.Who   usually  writes  the  lyrics  for  the  band.What  are  some  topics/subjects  you  all  write  about?


WE TRY TO WRITE THE LYRICS BETWEEN US AND THE TOPICS ARE USUALLY FOCUS FOR THOSE DAMNED WHOSE THE OLD BLACK FLAME OF HATRED AND WRATH WILL BURN WITH PRIDE ETERNALLY AND DAMN THOSE, WHO WERE UNLOYAL AND WEAK IN THEIR UNWORTHY LIFES. WELL, THE LYRICS TALK ABOUT ANTI CRISTIANITY, DEATH, REVENGE AND THE LAST ONE, BUT THE WITCHFUCKER FAVOURITE , BLACK RITE.

Representative bands of the old escene are pentagram, necrosis and atomic agressor. Meanwhile in the new ones you can find good representatives like disaster, hellraider, dekapited, dementors and orion, they are colossal bands of the black storm.






10. Witchfucker   you  take  care  of the  guitars  in  the  band  when did you first become  interested  in   playing the  guitars?Are you  self taught  or  did you take some  lessons  when  first  starting  out?

FOR US, THE UNDERGROUND IS THE REAL CONTACT WITH THE DARK SIDE, IT IS TO SUPPORT THE HORDE, THE MOVEMENT; GO TO CONCERTS, TO ACQUIRE THE BAND’S MATERIAL, THAT IS UNDERGROUND!

Interview with Visionz of Ancient Visionz, Darth Jedi Metal Show & The Wastelands radio shows, & Planet X Records done on 11-1-15‏

Here  is  a  new   interview  with  my  good  friend  Gaz  who  does two  radio-shows  on  Brutal  Existence Radio the  one  on  Mondays  is   mainly  Metal  styles  and the  other  one  Sat.  is  a  punk/h.c  with  some  metal  thrown in.Just  read the   interview  and  send  Gaz a  email  if you  are   interested in  being  played  on his  show.
Regards
Patrick






Interview  with Visionz of Ancient Visionz, Darth Jedi Metal Show & The Wastelands radio shows, & Planet X Records  done by  Patrick  







1.Hello  Gaz   how   is  life  going  in  the  U.K?  please  introduce  yourself  to   the  readers?

Hey Pat. Its going good man. I remember answering this interview way back last yr, but things got so crazy with the label, projects, and shows that I had to put it on hold. I was really hyper too as I'd just watched the Winter X Games, which is just rad, and man Summer X Games starts in Austin, Texas in 5 days so I'm stoked & hyper again! Safe! lol Since I last looked at this I've watched the Summer X Games, which had the same effect lol.

 LOL also things changed again since last answering the interview so I guess I can say the new NBA season has just started, which is boss.

For the readers I'm into music, movies, and I guess add in some geek culture & ya that's it man.

Since I last looked at the interview lol Ungovernable Resistance and the name Resistance are now no more. I closed both the site and email address last week. It wasn't an easy decision, but the right one. I'd grown uncomfortable with particular elements latching on to the site/show that were using the name to mean something else. Despite my efforts to change the lay out of the site and take the shows in a new direction i.e. not name them Ungovernable Resistance, it did not seem to get the point across to those people man.

The blatant mission statement kinda said that the site and name were just the title of a radio show. That is all UR ever was man. It was just the name of a punk/hc radio show lol, which later expanded into other areas of music and interests such as movies etc. So I wanted to move forward and use a name which was more inclusive for people so it didn't lead to any misinterpretations or attract overly elitist music fans that get very over zealous with people. I don't like that kind of behavior.

So the new name and site are called Ancient Visionz, which cannot be taken to mean anything else, and can represent any music. Punk, Metal, Hip Hop, Geekdom, sci fi, & movies. They are all there with that name and something I'm more comfortable with. Its much more welcoming. My radio shows remain, but there is no reference too or the name Ungovernable Resistance. The site and name are no more. I now go as Visionz and Ancient Visionz.

The new site is here http://ancientvisionz.blogspot.co.uk/

Email contact: ancientvisionz@gmail.com






2.Gaz   I  have  known  you  for  many  years  now  and  must say  you  are  one of the   most  open-minded   music  fans  I  know   have  you  always  been  open  to  new  bands/genres?  Who  were some  of  your  favorite  bands/artists  growing  up?  Who  are  some  of  your  current  favorites?

Yo thx man, but I did get in a bad mindset when i first got into death metal and thought it was the law and nothing else was real. I wish I'd had the experience I have now when first doing radio shows when I got into that scene, but I moved forward and got back to 'me'. I grew up on nu metal stuff mainly and I still like some of the bands to this day even though I know some suck, but I wouldn't have discovered metal if not for the likes of Chimaira, Lamb of God, and so on. My mom used to play mo town, blues, rock, metal, folk music, and stuff such as that so I was around many different styles so I was encouraged to be open and explore/discover various sounds. I also think that when ya involved in various scenes outside of punk & metal, and getting away from bad elements it helps open you up man. I'm fortunate I've learned this and not stay on the path like I see with some people who could be my Dad, Uncle or whatever calling people posers & stuff. Its stupid behavior and pretty dumb tbh.

Metal led to punk/hc, and from punk/hc I discovered underground hip hop. Those 3 scenes are what I listen to the most, but I do like other music and will be open to most things. There is only one genre of music that I cannot abide man, and the funny thing is I've heard many people say this in metal, punk, & hip hop, and its country music. Ughhh ughh ughhh is all I have to say so moving on lol.

I just love music and there is so much out there for us to enjoy from all kinds of music, which is kinda funny when i just stated my feelings on country lol, but there is. Music, movies, & nerd stuff are what I'm passionate about Pat so I always enjoy learning and discovering new stuff. I think it helps us stay open and be far more rounded as people. Its boring if you only like one scene or just have that to talk about. Its always cool to have a variety of interests and the same with music & our friends.

Current favorite: LOL this as its about coffee tables and hilarious. "Come be my coffee table & I'll be your sofa".
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_lyJt2T3GY
Also Ritual Control (hc) & a boss crust/hc punk band called Propaganda Del Odio from Chile. 

Ok man I'll try a random list, but there are just so many. The only bad about liking so much stuff from all scenes is you can fall behind man as you don't just follow one scene, but here you go dude until I feel lazy:

Auld Corn Brigade (celtic punk), Kilmaine Saints (celtic punk), The Mahones (celtic punk), Foreseen (crossover), Germ Bomb (metal punk, crossover), Nuclear Death Terror (kang/crust/d-beat), driller killer (kang/crust/metal punk), hellshock (crust), killbite (crust), per capita (stench), Auralskit (d-beat), Insidious Process (d-beat/crust), deadly reign (crust), pure disgust (hc punk), all out war (metallic hc/nyhc), permanent ruin (hc/hc punk), naysayer (nyhc), all for nothing (hc), harm done (hc), RAD(US) (hc), raw justice (HC),  rude awakening (hc), spine (hc), the rival mob (hc), to the point (hc), violent reaction (hc), enabler (metallic hc), knuckledust (hc/hc punk/london hc), drug control (hc), disxease (hc), desperate measures (hc), mindset (hc), truth (hc), power is poison (punk), kicker (punk), kansalatelletomattus (punk), afgrund (crust grind). I like most stuff from punk/hc genres man so everything from hc, punk, d-beat, grind, crust, pv/fastcore, crossover, stench, & so on man.

Jungle Rot. I like these guys a lot. Kinda got a punk edge to them in lyrics/feel and I like the way they continue forward. Fu Man Chu who are an awesome band. I really enjoy them. Timeworn (members from various crust punk bands), but they kinda do a post apoc dark metalish vibe. Its different so it draws me in. Very good music that belongs in a futuristic sci fi movie with cyborgs roaming around. Ade (awesome romano dm, fans of all things ancient will enjoy them & its different to the usual themes.

killah priest (underground hip hop), caxton press (underground hip hop), sick since (underground hip hop), si-klon (meso american & mayan themed underground hip hop), canibus (uderground hip hop),  dr creep (underground hip hop), & so so many more man.

I get very geeky for anything themed on futuristic sci fi themes, post apoc, but the fallout/mad max kinda stuff.  I'm open to giving most stuff a try or exploring it, and discovering the ug as every music has an ug. I even like some of the mainstream bands, but i'm picky with which.

I mostly listen to punk/hc, underground hip hop,  metal, and some reggae, but I'm passionate about music as a whole, and its a pity that popular music is drowning in way too much reality tv garbage from these wack shows so the few genuine good artists/bands that make it through can be forgotten about. The singers man can't hit the high notes or just wail or repeat a deep voiced ohhhh ohhh chorus. Its pretty much bar singers on tv at best with a coliseum of idiots cheering the destruction of famous songs lol. 

You know what i'd like to see on tv man is when these manufactured puppets come into a tv studio to promote their latest album, and are greeted by the excited host (sarcastically said), and he/she then says 'oh ty for coming in. On the way to work this morning I was listening to ya album in the car'. The wack singer then replies with "oh really what did u think?". Usually the tv host then proceeds to say how awesome the album is and its the best thing they heard since last Tuesday or whatever. LOL man can u imagine mr or ms tv dude/dudette then replies with "its crap I threw it out the car window, and now I'm going for coffee, commercials plz".
3. What  got  you    interested  in  doing  a radio show?

I wanted to help the music man and share my passion for it with other people, but also try to be entertaining for people. I'm a silly excitable person lol.
4. Would  you   have  any   advice  for   someone  who  is  thinking  of  trying  their   hand  at  being  a  D.J? 

Yeah man for sure. Think of what is your favorite genre of music or if its more than one genre can you mix them together? It doesn't have to be metal or punk as there is an underground in all forms of music. Plan an idea of what you want to do with a show, and how it will represent the music and you. For example you may wish to do a mixed variety of unsigned music from hip hop, metal to reggae or a movie chat show or sports & metal, and so on. Once you have this nailed then its a name for ya show & my advice is try to be different than the usual extreme mosh names.

Then start searching for a station, but take ya time and explore what is available. There are enough options so its important to make the right decision, and join a team where they have the right principles, ethics, morals, and aren't just doing it for popularity & egos. There is a certain level of trial and error you learn over time & I've made some stupid decisions, and like all of us wish I could have done some things different man, but the real person learns from it man, and helps others not make the same mistakes.

 Enjoy it and be prepared to devote the necessary time as you will learn to multi task very quickly, especially if you are in more than one scene where it never stops lol. Try not to take on too much and get burnt out, which I've done many times. Its easier said than done as its a passion, but I guess just try to balance everything would be the best solution.

Be ya self and evolve, adapt when you need too and keep going. Have fun and surround you're self with the right people. 1 love.
5 What  styles   of  music  do  you   play  on  your   shows?   Where  can  labels,bands  send  you   music  to  play? Oh man its very vast and the 2 music shows I do are very different. The Monday metal show is themed around my love of SW and I'm a boss geek (yes I took my boss nerd exams to reach the status of supreme bosso nerdo). However, the Darth Jedi Metal show also has a strong promo feel to it as I play many new promos and bands for the audience on the station, but I know I'm helping people with both bringing in new music and turning people on to bands so its a very rewarding show.  Its not a show that is for my own personal taste, but more about helping bands. I don't really talk much on this show as there is so much to play so I mainly stream very long sets.

The Darth Jedi (lols) edition features: DM, Doom, Desert Rock, Thrash, Brutal DM, Slam, Old School DM, Blackened DM,  melo death, tech/prog & oriental DM, Death Thrash, Speed, some Sludge, sometimes Blues, Traditional Metal, and even stuff such as Viking/Folk metal, and dude if it works for the station I'll play it.

I feature some bands/music I don't like, but this show is known for focusing more on promos. I stress it doesn't matter whether I enjoy all the music as its about opening people up to an array of styles. I play and have played all of the above. As I said man its extremely rewarding as I know some people listen just to see what's going to be played or what new promos I've been sent for that week. It kinda developed into this all by itself. It airs every Monday 1pm-5pm Eastern (US) on Brutal Existence Radio, and I do want to thank the many promotion companies and bands that email me every week with new material to play. Its highly appreciated.  

If anyone wants to be featured just email ancientvisionz@gmail.com
The other show I do I'll talk about it in the next question man.
6.Besides  your  metal  show   you  are  going  to  move  your  punk,grind  show  to  BER when  will  this  be  happening? Lol as its been a while since I looked at the interview the punk show moved some time ago. Its the original edition and longest running show from my former Ungovernable Resistance site, but there have been several changes and evolutions recently so its not just raging grindcore, which you know I love along with hardcore. I'd prob say it moved maybe 2yrs ago, and its centralized all my music shows in one place so it made much more sense, and is less confusing for people & myself! lol.

I tried a 'Stressed Out' theme for the show not long after it had moved, and this is because I'm a silly person & enjoy well being 'silly'. It was kinda think of a stressed out office dude screaming or something and raging at his desk popping blood vessels everywhere so it was angry hc punk/hc, and grind with a shouty silly person. It didn't quite work so I took some time to think of well how I can adapt and evolve the punk show again so it can progress?

This is something I always do with shows when necessary. If I need to change/adapt/evolve them then I will. I looked at my audience, my own interests in things (not just music) & came up with an idea for a show themed around a post apocalyptic future influenced by Fallout, Mad Max, and Judge Dredd. All post apoc movies/games/comics tbh lol. I can honestly say its the best idea I've had and its my favorite show. The show is called 'The Wastelands', which yes is an obvious and very common factor in anything post apoc, but its very different to the Darth Jedi show. Ya some of the same music can be on the show such as DM, but its a got whole feel of its own. I host the show as 'The Wanderer' who travels the wastes upon the cursed earth so the character is based upon someone of that description. I present stories and adventures from the wastes with mosh lol. Ya man in my element as a geek with this show as I stream from various undisclosed locations throughout the wastelands.

Ok enough nerding & on to what music is featured. Its a hybrid show fusing punk & metal together, which goes with the evolution of the former & now defunct UR punk/hc edition into 'The Wastelands'.  I play Crust, HC Punk, DM, Thrash, Brutal DM, Crossover, HC, NYHC, Metallic HC, Anarcho Punk, Grindcore, Crust Grind, Grind Violence, PV/Fastcore, Slam, Old School DM, Sludge (if its fast paced with boss riffage), D-Beat, Beatdown HC, Folk/Celtic Punk, Speed Metal, Metal Punk, Traditional Heavy Metal (Motorhead/NWOBHM influenced), Stench, and punk.
7.Besides  your  two  musical  shows  you  and your  co-host V.X  do  a  Sunday  talk  show  through  PXR  radio   when  did  this  come  to  be?Its been around for a few yrs and it started by accident with VX co hosting random editions of the former UR show with me where we played ug hip hop, punk, and metal, but would discuss movies, history, and general things that were happening in the world.

 We then developed PX Radio as we call it to do more of the same, but also provide updates and news on what was happening with our label Planet X Records. We would chat about new releases, forth coming tracks/albums and the concepts behind them etc, which is an important aspect with underground hip hop. Later we started to interview guests from film and music, but the emphasis is now concentrating much more on film and areas of interest than music. I talk about this more in one of the questions below. Atm the show is in its off season and we are currently working out some tech issues before the new season returns. 

8. it is  a  show  that  features  not only  musical  bands and  labels  but  also   independent   movie  actors,actresses  and  directors etc..  Who   have  been  some  of your  favorite  guests  over the  last  few  years?

Incredibly difficult to answer. In no particular order it would be: John Hyams (director of universal soldier 3 & 4, Z Nation), Loren (Average Superstar Films), Sick Since (UG Hip Hop), Presto (UG Hip Hop), M-Eighty (UG Hip Hop), War Wraiths (American Civil War documentary movie), Temple of Void (death/doom), Septekh (death/thrash), John Barber (rip brother, drummer from Triangle Fire), and man there are many more.  We always try to get guests to chat about other interests too so its not the usual interview as it can get boring for both hosts and artists so its cool to discuss movies, history etc. We've had bands on and chatted about movies for 3 hrs lol or a particular period in history, and they are very popular shows. This is probably due to the fact its reminding people that we are all the same and have more in common than we realize.
9.I  know  the  new  season   has  begun  but  are  you  all  looking for  new  guests  to  come  on the  show?  where  can  people  who  might  want  to  get  on the  show  get  in  contact  with you  guys?

Umm the season kinda started and finished since I last looked at this lol. But season 9 or 10 will start soon when some tech issues are worked out, but we've had new albums to focus on as many of the guys released new music as we are a label and not just a chat radio show.  They can email me @ ancientvisionz@gmail.com, but we are drastically reducing the music guests to focus on movies, history, the paranormal, which are usually more popular shows.

. PXR has moved more into the indie film scene so our focus is going to be much more on movies and those areas mentioned
10.Gaz   I know  you  are  also  a   huge  movie  buff  as  well as  music.  When  did you get  into  movies?  What  are  some  of your    all-time  favorite  movies  of   all-time?  Do  you   have  a specific  genre  you  like  the  most  or doo you  watch   a  variety  ?Yo man I'm a huge geek. Seriously. Movies are my next passion outside of music so I go to see as many movies as I can. I also watch both mainstream and independent film & its a scene I'm greatly interested in man. I've probably seen every movie release this yr so far lol, and there aren't many wack sci fi channel movies I haven't watched lol. We have a channel here called the 'horror channel', which does show some some safe independent movies too. I'm going to recommend one called 'Orc Wars', which is hilarious. Its got a dude fighting orcs, a demoness, and a dragon with modern day weaponry lol.

I read/watch film reviews and just love to know whats happening in movies. The movie theater is special man as its escapism from all the evil that goes on in this world, and if it ever vanished people would miss it man. Its just not the same watching a movie on a small screen & ok we can open another interview alone on theater prices, but people are happy to spend so much on getting drunk & falling on the floor whilst vomiting so I want to watch a movie how it should be viewed. But, I do recognize and agree that the pricing needs to be more balanced so it can get people going again. I also think the same applies to live shows, and especially festivals who are so greedy man.

Yeah I do have 2 particular favorite genres which are sci fi and post apocalyptic. Those genres have always fascinated me and I'm stoked about Fallout 4 coming soon, which is a post apoc action/rpg game, which will be one of my faves. I do like some movies set in the ancient past and action movies, but I'm generally open to watch anything as long as they aren't butt wack horror movies such as The Visit & Unfriended etc. As already mentioned or probably somewhere I've seen every movie release so far more or less lol, and I'll watch a variety outside of my preferences man. I kinda have the same attitude with movies as I do with music, which is to be open outside of my comfort zone so I'll give most stuff a try man.

Favorite movies of all time? Force Awakens, Rogue One, Episode 8, Episode 9. I really hope so lol. Man this is tough. So many man both major and indie. There are just too many Pat. I watch so many movies its insane lol. Although so far from recent releases I'd say Fast and Furious 7 for the stunts alone, then Mad Max Beyond Fury Road as that was just such a rad movie, especially when you read about the scale of the crew involved, and the stunt sequences they filmed for the movie. A labor of work, which really delivered. The Revenant due for release soon looks safe. 

I was raised on movies man and something I've just always liked along with music so I guess that's it man. I want to send a shout to my buddy Loren at Average Superstar Films who are currently filming a new movie called Dark Military, which they are all working hard on atm. For people in the punk/hc scene peep Loren's documentary on Pennsylvania Hardcore from its inception to present day. There are some awesome interviews featured and Randy from Lamb of God also makes an appearance, which is interesting as they came from the hc scene and were very influenced by the music. They are a very famous and mainstream band, but they are kinda one of those bands that bridge the gap between mainstream and underground.

Ron Perlman is a good example of someone that does major movies, but also still actively supports the independent film community, and takes roles in independent films too. Its a good way of bridging the scenes, but also saying hey you can remain grounded and do things the right way.

Oh & in random news Pat I was just saying to a friend could you imagine some muscle man in a movie theater taking up 7 rows as he's a lil wide and during the movie a mini robot pops up from the row in front of him with a grin on its face saying to him "its garbage" then he just vanishes.

  LOL Hey Pat I could have said I'm a sci fi nerd so guess. That would cover it lol.
11.Who   are  some  of  your   favorite  actors  and  actresses?

This is a good question man & a tough one.  I guess man it would be Denzel Washington, Liam Neeson, Matt Damon, Samuel L Jackson, and Gary Oldman. Other actors who are consistent: Charlize Theron has turned in some rad performances, and is a candidate for one of the best actresses around atm. I thought she was the more interesting character in Mad Max Beyond Fury Road, which is one of the best releases of 2015.

Christian Bale, Michael Fassbender (Assassins Creed movie currently filming), Ron Perlman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Johnny Depp, Karl Urban, Charlize Theron has played some good roles, and there are many more. Atm we do have an influx of wack in Hollywood, but there is a quite a solid list we could come up with. The problem is an over saturation of reboots and remakes. Some are rad and I support, but others are meh. Marvel needs to start to deliver on some of its movies or people will grow tired of super heroes so we need to stream line them just a lil and focus on delivering more quality, and not polished bottles of turds. Whilst on that subject one of the winners of turd of the year has to be Terminator Genesys. Butt, total butt. Butt, butt, butt, & butt. Guardians of the Galaxy was awesome though.
12.When  not working on  the  next  show  or  watching  movies   what  do  you   enjoy  doing  in  your   spare  time?

 Yo I like to watch soccer/basketball, extreme sports such as snowboarding & the X Games, and TNA wrestling, but sadly its become butt. There are a few teams I support and follow such as Arsenal, Boston Celtics, US Men's national soccer team, Washington Capitals. I read all the latest news on movies, sci fi series, and also like to watch documentaries on underground music especially music that originates from the streets, but also enjoy solid shows/series that aren't some manufactured reality tv garbage or people trying to hit high notes whilst they destroy famous songs on wack pop contests. As I'm a geek I watch sci fi shows and movies whenever I can, & as you know ya self I enjoy discussing them with friends both on & offline. At the label we are all big movie fans so its a constant topic with us all.

2015 and 2016 are set to become the biggest yrs for movie releases, and its a good time to be a geek if I hadn't mentioned that earlier. Captain America Civil War in 2016, which should be better than the Lamevengers Age of Buttron, which was the disappointment of the summer. Such a butt movie. Star Wars Episode 7 The Force Awakens, which oh man its time for the force! I generally like to support the film community both major and independent as it something I'm passionate about outside of music, and I do what I can to help. For fellow geeks peep the Flash TV show, which is probably the best comic book TV show there is atm.
13.Thanks  a   million  gaz  for   taking  the  time  to  fill  this  interview    out. Do  you    have  any  final  comments  for  the   readers?I'd like to say ty for reading and ty to you Pat for the interview & what you do to help music man. If I can help anyone or your interested in the music I play on the shows or would like to discuss movies on our chat show then yw to get in touch. Don't forget SW episode 7 The Force Awakens is out soon. Thanks and peace to all the bands, pr companies, people from all scenes that help me with what I do and support me. 1 love. 1.
