On July 18th, this year's roaming, thundering beast that is SOTU hit Toronto, Canada. We caught up with Darkest Hour guitarist Mike Schleibaum for an on-the-fly interview.
On June 27th, Toronto, Canada was devastated with one hell of a Metal show. There was carnage everywhere, legs and arms flying around, and sweat, spit and blood pouring all over people. It was BRUTAL! During 5 seconds of quiet, we managed to grab All Shall Perish frontman Hernan "Eddie" Hermida and ask him several things about new material, Euro-tours, and BEER! Oh and there was a stupid seagull!
T'was a humid, sticky 2nd day of June in Toronto, Canada when we got temporarily relieved from the heat, with some cool tunes. On that day during the last stop of the sick Tour and Loathing tour, PureGrainAudio's Spencer Matulaitis connected with Protest The Hero frontman Rody Walker and spoke to him about pissing on tour bus beds, band fighting, oh... and their new record! Plus a random guest appearance by Stuart Aiken, front man of These Silhouettes.
So on an unseasonably muggy Saturday on June 2nd, Toronto, Canada was host to the last stop of the radical Tour and Loathing tour. Just prior to the musical madness at the Opera House, we got the privilege of speaking with Threat Signal frontman Jon Howard in a small, grungy bar. PureGrainAudio's Spencer Matulaitis spoke with Jon about all that is Threat Signal including; the band's search for a guitarist, being Canadian, and most importantly... BEER!
On a mad humid Saturday June 2nd in Toronto, Canada the amazing Tour and Loathing tour dropped by our local venue the Opera House. Before the show, PureGrainAudio's Spencer managed to catch up with All That Remains lead singer Phil Labonte and talked with him in brief about their coming European and Mexican tour dates, the progress on their future album, and of course... videos games!
We caught up with Against Me! drummer Warren Oakes for a chat about, the soon-to-be-released new album New Wave, how to react to "a rise to fame", and of course... when not to wear short-shorts.
Dimmu Borgir guitarist Silenoz took us aboard his bus-like fortress and answered some questions regarding the band's highly anticipated new album In Sorte Diaboli, touring, videos, and his "retirement plans!"
While on tour with Dimmu Borgir, DevilDriver, and Kataklysm, Unearth stopped at the Kool Haus in Toronto, Canada and were connected with PureGrainAudio for a short video interview. Bassist John "Slo" Maggard was kind enough to talk to us on his tour bus and during our brief discussion we touched upon Unearth's new track "The Chosen," touring and much more! Check it out!
During a stop in Toronto, Canada, PureGrainAudio caught up with Bullet For My Valentine and did a video interview with guitarist Michael Paget and drummer Michael Thomas.

During a stop over in Guelph, Ontario in Canada while on tour with Lamb of God, Trivium and Machine Head, French death metallers Gojira were nice enough to afford us an interview.
