Donny Hillier of TRAUMA Discusses his Career and Cliff Burton in Trauma with Mark Dean of Madness To Creation

Contributor's Note: Late 2020 will prove to be a busy time for first wave thrash metallists Trauma, as they will release their fourth full-length release overall, as well as touring throughout Europe on a bill also featuring Ross the Boss and Burning Witches. Comprising members Donny Hillier - lead vocals, Kris Gustofson - drums, Greg Christian - bass guitar, Joe Fraulob - guitars and Steve Robello - guitars, Trauma looks to build on the buzz created by their last album, 2018’s ‘As the World Dies.’   “Trauma is currently considering what the album should be called,” explains Kris. “Usually for us we have to think about a theme/scope of the recorded songs and what it represents for the time now. Hopefully we will have something soon that makes sense for the recorded collection of tracks,...

Bobby Blitz(OVERKILL) & Mark Menghi(METAL ALLEGIANCE) of BPMD Discusses “American Made” & Covid-19 with Mark Dean of Madness To Creation

Contributor's Note:  In an era where heavy rock supergroups have become the norm I was ready to dismiss yet another.However the personnel comprising this particular one certainly made me sit up and notice.  Consisting of heavy metal icons Bobby Blitz (Overkill) on vocals, drummer Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Sons of Apollo), bassist Mark Menghi (Metal Allegiance) and guitarist Phil Demmel (Vio-lence, ex-Machine Head)  they recently announced  new details regarding their debut album. BPMD will release their upcoming full-length, American Made, on June 12, 2020 via Napalm Records. The 10-track homage to some of rock music's greatest treasures is turbocharged by the experience and enthusiasm of its four creators, and its first single, "Toys In The Attic" – an Aerosmith classic just beggi...

Bobby Gustafson(ex-OVERKILL) of SATAN’S TAINT Converses with Madness To Creation on War History, Mental Health Awareness, and Dogs!

Editor's Note:  We never thought that we would see the day where we interview a band called Satan's Taint for Madness To Creation, yet here we are.  I think this band wins my award for band you can't yell their name too loud without people gawking at you.  This band is brutal and a lot of their songs are based upon battles in history, the apocalypse, and even songs that question the validity of religion.  On August 2nd, Satan's Taint has released their brutal album entitled "Destruction Ritual".  Fans can find Satan's Taint at the following locations: www.facebook.com/AxetotheheadofmyenemiesDestructionRitual www.satanstaintmusic.com Madness To Creation:  Hi Bobby, thank you so much for taking the time to interview with us for Madness To Creation.  I must ask have you ever watched ...

William of MADNESS TO CREATION Converses with Bobby Blitz of OVERKILL on “Opportunities”, Tracks That Hit Bobby in the Feels, over a Game of Bucket of Doom!

Contributor's Note:  This interview for Madness To Creation was done on May 5, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri during Overkill's stop at Delmar Hall on their Wings of War tour.  We'd like to thank Bobby for his time in this interview.  Enjoy!  Fans can find OVERKILL at the following locations: www.facebook.com/OverkillWreckingCrew www.wreckingcrew.com www.twitter.com/OverkillBand www.instagram.com/OverkillOfficial William:  I know there’s been a lot of hype and excitement with regard to Jason joining the band and that you said, for example in Russia “three songs into it….something feels different.”  But one thing I was curious about with regard to the genesis of the new songs, have you noticed any nuances of how their input has changed since he joined? Bobby:  Well Dave Linsk...

Erik Barath, guitarist of INDESTRUCTIBLE NOISE COMMAND, Converses with Madness To Creation on Releasing “Terrible Things” Without a Record Label!

Editor's Note:  Indestructible Noise Command is a band that should be at the forefront of the thrash/hardcore metal world, but they choose to define what it means to be underground.  I get the vibe from the band that they would be just as content destroying basements at DIY-house venues as they would performing at Wacken or Hellfest overseas.  The band has released their ferocious album entitled "Terrible Things" to some rave reviews, and they have some serious irons in the fire.  In the meantime, guitarist Erik Barath of Indestructible Noise Command sat down with Madness To Creation to discuss the album, what he feels that he can work on as a musician, and taking no prisoners while on stage.  Fans can find Indestructible Noise Command at the following locations: www.facebook.com/incmet...

Evan Seidlitz(vocalist) and Darren Badorine(drummer) of Invidia Gives a Lesson on Touring Life, Gemini Syndrome, and “As The Sun Sleeps” with Madness To Creation!

Editor's Note:  It was a rather warm evening at Lefty's Live Music in Des Moines, Iowa.  And a band that is on the rise in the metal world, known as Invidia is a band that takes advantage of every opportunity that they can get their hands on. Invidia is composed of out of the ashes of Five Finger Death Punch, Skindred, and Evan joined the band this year after his stint with VYCES. They joined up to provide direct support for Wednesday 13 and Gabriel And The Apocalypse  If there is a stage, whether there's 10 people there or 10,000 people there, they want to play that stage.  They are genuinely about making personal connections with the fans, but when they get on that stage, they turn into a very hard-hitting band that is driven with copious amounts of intensity.  As of this year, Evan ...
