This week I'm proud to present my chat with one of the most influential men in the extreme metal scene, ERIK RUTAN of HATE ETERNAL! He has had a hand in producing 80 different metal releases and is the guiding force between perhaps the fastest, most intense band in death metal, Hate Eternal. He's also a very well-spoken and intelligent gentleman who opened up about a lot of personal issues, such as the tragic demise of former HE bandmate JARED ANDERSON (who hailed from my own hometown). He also talks about how to separate Erik the musician from Erik the producer, the art of new album "Infernus" and possible new plans for his long dormant project ALAS. This is one of the best talks I've had in a while, so check it out HERE!
