Now this is fucking awesome…CVLT Nation got a chance to interview one of the bands that inspired us to start this webzine: The Almighty Weedeater. It was fun coming up with these questions, which took me back to my days growing up in Georgia. Not only is Weedeater a rocking

Have you ever come face to face with black magic? When I stare at photos taken by Alan Hunter, something takes over my mind. This Seattle photographic wizard seems like he actually captures the spirit of the beings that he photographs. A week ago, he was on hand at the
