Blood Cult – We Who Walk Behind the Rows (CD review)

It‘s a sad fact of life good things don‘t last very long. The same applies for a small label from Virginia, USA, called Rusty Axe Records. This label is/was responsible for some great releases, tell you that!

Interview with J.R. Preston (part III.)

You and the wrestling…how did you came to like it?

When I was young our household only had 3 channels on the T.V. Most of the stuff I didn’t watch because it wasn’t aimed at kids. One day I saw wrestling. Of course, I became a fan. Every Sunday after Church I would watch wrestling. I’m still a fan of the art of professional wrestling. It’s pure entertainment – for people who enjoy being entertained. I understand why some wouldn’t enjoy it. These are people that are annoyed by things which are entertaining. It has a “white trash” stigma attached to it, which makes it even better for me.

Yeah, I was about 13 when I saw WWF for the first time…Amazing days, end of 1990, I guess it was…

The Ultimate Warrior era probably, then?

Interview with J.R. Preston (part II.)

(underlined lines – Rubber Axe, JR’s answers are in normal type)

No one should cover Metallica!

Lol. I agree. Although Stormlord’s cover of “Creeping Death” is better than original.

When bands cover them, I can’t take them seriously. I heard Cannibal Corpse cover Metallica and it was like the world ended. Why would anyone cover that shitty band?

Interview with J.R. Preston (part I.)

If you ask me how I got to know J.R Preston, the person behind Tjolgtjar and couple of other projects, I honestly can’t remember, if my life would depend on it. Actually, I kinda might remember… looking for some music in 8-bit computer sounds, I went through 8-bit Emperor and Mayhem to Xexyz, J.R’s NESBM (Nintendo Entertainment System Black Metal) project and from the, it was only a small step to get interested to his music and stuff he does.

I wanted to do this interview for a long time – and the time has come. Welcome The Reverend, folks!

Well, hello there, J.R., and thanks for your time doing this interview. First of all, I consider it strange there are not that many interviews with you about any of your projects. Is it intentional from your side (say, refusing to do interviews) or simply just not much interest in your musick?
