Finnish quartet Throat return with their third full-length 'Smile Less', due for release later this week via Svart Records. Recorded at Tonehaven Recording Studio with Tom Brooke, mixed by Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Cult of Luna, Cave In) and mastered by Carl Saff (Big Business, KEN Mode, Young Widows), the new album pushes boundaries within noise rock to showcase Throat's darker side. We caught up with guitarist/vocalist Jukka Mattila ahead of the release to discuss the band's formation, influences, ambitions and more.
Instrumental post-metal quartet Telepathy are celebrating the release of their new album 'Burn Embrace', the follow-up to 2017's 'Tempest' which saw the band touring alongside the likes of Sólstafir and Saint Vitus. Combining a hefty mix of sludge, doom and blackened metal, we caught up with guitarist Piotr Turek to find out more about the band's interesting back story, their wide range of influences and more.
