Bought it last night. Am I correct when I think that this was the same magazine featuring KORN on the cover 10 years ago? Now ABSU?!

Serious integrity issues for Metal Maniacs... Laughing


I stopped picking up MM around that time (late 90's). Everything they did before that was geared more towards underground bands. I see they're getting back into black metal these days. I guess it also has to do with who the editor is.

i've also did an interview with him for a chinese zine, but it was rejected by the editor as his answers were too short and my questions were also pretty boring... so here we go.

>the real identities cannot be revealed. they are my personal slaves of

>that's all a band needs before they start to suck shit.

That's why we didn't bother interviewing him for the Metal Maniacs thing.

You think that's bad, you ought to check out some of the Revenge interviews where every answer is something like:

"Yes."
"No."
"I don't care."
"Cult."
"Also cult."

That's what I figured. When I asked for an Interview he said "we don't do interviews, but send it over and we might respond." Luckily they did.

I've read those Revenge interviews, like when they asked Pete about his equipment and his playing style he said he "didn't care", yet in another interview he talks shit about people who don't review his album the way he would like them to by saying those people don't know what type of musicianship, and skills they put into making so-and-so album. Then why doesn't he tell us?
