Alaric interview is up (updated 9-16-2011)
1. So Tell us the tale of how Alaric Came to be?
2. The sound to me is a mix of Killing Joke, The Mission (UK), Cop shoot Cop and Grinch .. how would you explain it?
3. Being ex member of such bands a Noothgrush, Dead and Gone and UK Subs this is so many musical elements How did the Gloomy No wave Punk sound come out so strong?
4. Your working with 20 Buck Spin a very impressive label in the underground Post Hardcore and Metal scene how did you come to work with them?
5. With Alaric be touring the US off this album or is it more a project and not a full touring band?
6. Is there a running them on the Self titled album or just a collection of Dark Foreboding songs??
7. There is a very strong Goth element to the guitars and bass tones was this just a natural progression?
8. Being Veterans of the Underground music scenes. What the bands thoughts on the 21st century digital age .. Does it hurt or help artists and labels?
9. The Artwork for the Album is so disturbing tell us about it and how does it play into the theme of the album?
10. I hate using the term Death Rock but do you see this a new revival and many others are starting to bring back that sound as well. Is there void missing on the late 80's Goth Rock days?
11. Will be be seeing any videos or DVD from Alaric as this band would work so well with that video medium..
12. The Band being from San Fran area do you feel kinship with The Neurot Recording/ Prank scene and labels from there area the hardcore, punk, crust and metal scenes seem to all merge there that was one cool thing I always saw?
13. Thank you for time any closing thoughts here..
Our self-titled LP / CD will be out on October 11th followed by a split 12" with Atriarch in January both on the incredible 20 Buck Spin label.
