THE RANGE ON THE LINE: AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH JAMES HINTON

interview by Michael McCarthy The Range is the moniker of choice of James Hinton, a super talented quote “electronic musician.” I use the quotes because when many people think of electronic musicians they tend to think of sterile music that lacks the human touch. This is where The Range’s music differs substantially. Rather...

AN IN-DEPTH INTERVIEW WITH BELETH OF NOCTEM

interview by Michael McCarthy Back in 2014 we interviewed Beleth and Exo of Spanish extreme/black metal band Noctem regarding their brutal and mind-blowing album Exilium.

This past Tuesday night, October 11th, 2016, I was fortunate to catch the young woman who calls herself Elohim live.

#songoftheday = CHRISTIAN O: “LUCY’S LAIR”
