It was a real pleasure to recently speak to Mr. FRANK HEALEY, a veteran of the British extreme music scene who has done service in NAPALM DEATH, CEREBRAL FIX and BENEDICTION. Currently he is firmly ensconced in the band MEMORIAM, who are delivering a master class in pure death metal in the tradition of BOLT THROWER and BENEDICTION. Frank tells us about the no-frills work ethic of the band, their view of current world affairs and what it's like carrying the torch for a whole style of music. You can see for yourselves what he's got to say by checking out the interview HERE.

By coincidence, I can report that I got an interview with a very close associate of Frank's, one MR. DAVE INGRAM. The former voice of BOLT THROWER and BENEDICTION is now lending his growls to DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN and a number of other projects. That one will make a nice bookend to my chat with Mr. Healey. Also, to let you humanoids know, we may have a week with very little activity here. I will be spending this upcoming weekend in Milwaukee attending the annual NYDM Spring Bash. We're going to have a major report on that show as well!

This week's Torture Chamber is all over the map, stylistically, from utter brutality to pure prog and Icelandic folk!
