While jaunting through the fetid boneyards beneath Tampa, Florida, I recently ran into PETE SLATE from the nightmarish doom/death masters DRUID LORD! It was a happy but morbid meeting with Mr. Slate and I cajoled an entertaining interview out of him. We wound up talking about our favorite "Night Gallery" episodes, the glory years of the Florida death metal scene and even that old scalawag, Mr. Hyde! It was a great talk for fans of classic horror and putrid death metal both and you can savor it HERE!

Slowly making some progress on new features for the zine. I was also able to speak to TYLA CAMPBELL and NEIL STARR from PHIL CAMPBELL & THE BASTARD SONS, the new unit featuring longtime MOTORHEAD guitarist Phil Campbell and three of his own sons as well as Mr. Starr! Look for that in the weeks ahead as well as THERON MOORE's chat with SUZI UZI of rising Chicago sludge/doom artists BLACK ROAD and our anticipated TOP 10 OF 2017 lists!

The Torture Chamber has a healthy mix of well known bands and more obscure artists this week!
