I know rawness when I hear it, and when I first heard Pittsburg’s Code Orange Kids, I knew I was hearing a band that was beyond raw! Honestly, I believe these young humans are the real fucking deal, and have passion for days to create some awesome music. One band that has seen them grow has been Masakari – I reached out to them to interview Code Orange Kids and was super stoked when al parties agreed. It’s such an killer read, because it’s more of a conversation between peers than an interview, and that’s what it’s all about! CVLT Nation is honored to share with you Joe from Masakari and Jami from Code Orange Kids breaking it down to the nitty gritty!
CVLT Nation had the pleasure to talk to the infamous black metal artist, Daniel Desecrator, and today we are sharing that interview with you. We have also been lucky enough to work with him on designs for our clothing line, and he has created some seriously amazing pieces for CVLT Nation. Daniel hails from Chile, where he works full-time on his artwork and as a tattoo artist, breathing life into the disturbing imagery of death. His artwork takes you to a place where your soul screams in terror while your heart leaps with a dark and disgusting joy. He has worked with bands like Hooded Menace, Demonic Rage, Morbid Insulter and Chronic Torment, just to name a few. He is also a member of the killer black metal band, Slaughtbbath, and a very talented self-taught tattoo artist. He is basically an extremely busy guy, and we are really happy he was able to take the time to let us into his world just for a moment. So after the jump, enter the slaughterhouse and the world of Daniel Desecrator…
Order of Orias are procurers of their own destiny. Two years after their first material came-to-light, formed through a series of rough cuts, this Australian quintet placed themselves in the path of World Terror Committee productions with the hope of gaining an ear.
Their moment of whim came to fruition as the iconic German-based label took up their call, laced with the blackened brush of defining new material.
Shortly after the release of debut LP, Inverse, CVLT Nation chats with bassist Robert Prain….

CVLT Nation is beyond excited to bring you another ultra gnarly artist to artist interview. This time, two of our favorite hardcore bands went skull to skull: Full of Hell vs. Heartless. One of the main reasons why we started this series was to give the bands another voice though which to express themselves. Full of Hell vs. Heartless is a killer read and gives me new insight into a band that I really dig. I’m super happy we could bring these two bands together, especially being that they have an epic tour together starting Nov. 25th, so they had better get used to each other! I getting bored of my own voice, check out this real as fuck interview after the jump!
Are you ready for an ultra heavy experience? Ear/Splitters & CVLT Nation presents two nights of extra mammoth riffage with three bands that are reshaping how heavy music is created. It all takes place this Thursday, Nov. 17th, and this Friday, Nov. 18th, with The Atlas Moth, Kowloon Walled City and Batillus, plus for the Los Angeles show, the line up will be joined by (16), and Pigeonwing will be on hand for the Long Beach gig. We are pretty stoked that all three of the headlining bands got together to interview each other for CVLT Nation. One reason we started the artist to artist interview series is because we thought that bands would ask questions from a whole other perspective, and this interview proves just that. So after the jump, take a journey into this mental circus!

What makes the world go around are relationships, and today CVLT Nation is extra stoked to bring an artist to artist interview between two friends – Ralph Schmidt of Planks and Mike Hill of Tombs. This conversation is an insight into their minds, and it is a perfect example of why we started this series in the first place. Humans that share a common history tend to open up more to one another than they would with a stranger, and that’s what makes this such an interesting read!
Introduction by Ralph Schmidt:
Mike Hill and I have been friends for a long time – which is awkward, since we are both no good with other people. We met when his old band Anodyne was touring Europe in 2004. The drummer for my old band booked the tour and they had several days off. They crashed at my apartment and Mike and I got into good conversations and ended up becoming good friends. This friendship lasted, and lasts over the years while other parts of our lives fall apart. My old band broke up, so did Anodyne. Tombs and Planks started around the same time. Pretty fast, we had the idea to do a split. This happened and so did two tours together: one in the UK and one in the US. Planks is often compared to Tombs, which I can see, as both Mike and I are the main songwriters and have relatively similar views on music, life, negativity and our dislike for winky metal bands. This is a chat we started for CVLT Nation. Thanks to them for giving us this platform…
Without apology, I think one of the sickest bands that is bringing the ruckus is Cleveland’s Masakari. Their album The Prophet Feeds was on some next level of rawness. Then Masakari linked up with Germany’s Alpinist for one of the year’s gnarliest split and a ballistic tour. Maybe you can tell, I’m pretty stoked on this band – that’s why we are extra proud to go live with their interview today! So after the jump, read the thoughts of the members of Masakari…
