This time around, I get to speak to one of my favorite European hard rock acts, THE QUILL. Why these guys are now better known in the States is a baffling mystery, but I want to do what I can to correct this injustice. I interviewed vocalist supreme MAGNUS EKWALL, guitarist CHRISTIAN CARLSSON and bassist ROGER NILSSON, who give us the lowdown on what The Quill's been up to as well as the story behind their great new album "Earthrise". Strap yourself in and prepare for a hard ride HERE...

In addition to the news I dropped on you last time about changes coming to WC, this time I've got a ton of upcoming features to tell you about. I've got an interview with German doom metal band WHEEL, who have just released what I think is the best album of 2021 so far, "Preserved In Time". And I've also got a chat with one of America's most traveled metal vocalists, MIKE TIRELLI, who's belted it out for HOLY MOTHER, MESSIAH'S KISS and RIOT V, amongst others. He has quite an inspirational story to tell! Not to be outdone, THERON MOORE tells me he's grabbed interviews with D&D obsessed death metalers SUMMONING THE LICH and blackened thrash unit SARCOPTES! Wait, there's more! How about mysterious OCTOPI MILLS speaking to Finnish doom legend ALBERT WITCHFINDER about his new project OPIUM WARLORDS! Or esteemed LORD RANDALL hobnobbing with mysterious Italian death-doom outfit FUOCO FATUO? And I plan on doing a Philm Phreaks article about the batshit crazy early 90's video oddity "Winterbeast"! WHEW! Wormwood is alive and well!

And just because I'm on a roll, here's an extra big edition of the Torture Chamber...

WEREWOLVES                                                           "What A Time To Be Alive"

PHILM                                                                       "Time Burner"
