Lots of big news this week! I managed to secure a tremendous interview with ROSS DOLAN of the death metal legends IMMOLATION! Ross and I had a great time on this one and this interview will be a lot of fun to read. Also, in a completely different vein, DARK STARR got an interview with PAUL RICHARDS from the long-running prof fusion act CALIFORNIA GUITAR TRIO! That should be something unique! Also working on a couple of other cool items that I can tell you about soon!

As if this isn't enough, we also have this week's regularly scheduled Torture Chamber reviews!
