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?
