IWRESTLEDABEARONCE: “Oh, my God! Oh, man. We almost got in a wreck! We almost hit another car!” exclaims a hyperventilating Krysta Cameron, vocalist for musical alchemists and lightning rods of scene controversy. Despite the band’s online popularity and the digital word of mouth that has propped them up, getting in their four wheeled death trap has been mostly responsible for their quick ascent from indie DIY band to signed recording artists.
   Iwrestledabearonce and their contemptuous attitude, jocular veneer, and It’s All Happening, the band’s debut full-length of metal meets hardcore meets grind meets everything else, has pissed people off. But it’s also brought them an increasingly solid and devoted fan base. We found Steven Bradley and Krysta Cameron to be thoughtful individuals with the only real goals of having the music they play reflect their tastes and personalities while shaking up their own status quos and keeping things interesting for themselves. Oh yeah, and to avoid crashing their van into other vehicles.

HATEBREED: Jamey Jasta is hoarse. The Hatebreed frontman is trying to relax on one of the band’s rare days off from a relentless tour schedule. It’s surprising that Jasta wouldn’t rather rest, recuperate, and reschedule our talk for another day. Then again, that’s the sort of guy Jasta is—living and breathing his music 24/7. Very few musicians out there have an unkind word for the dedicated Jasta, and it only takes speaking with him to instantly understand why, as he gives us all the skinny on Hatebreed, For the Lions, and the band’s new self-titled fifth album.

THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER: After capping a period that saw the release of three blazing displays of melodic death metal (Unhallowed, Miasma, and Nocturnal), you knew that their next album would be a blockbuster. That album is Deflorate, and it is the sound of a band that has reached what vocalist Trevor Strnad has dubbed “the next level.” As one would expect, it is fast, brutal, and relentless. On the last days of summer and just ahead of the new album’s release, we spoke with Trevor Strnad.

BLESSTHEFALL: With a sweet deal from Fearless Records and new motivation, blessthefall traveled to Virginia to record their sophomore set Witness. The record shows an obvious growth as heard on their leadoff single “God Wears Gucci.” Although blessthefall doesn’t regularly sport the luxury brand, the Phoenix band has finally become the strong, polished unit they always aspired to be, according to lead guitarist Eric Lambert and new vocalist Beau Bokan.

There are not many people who by the age of 32 can lay claim to having just released the ninth studio album by the band they’ve been in for 18 years, but then Behemoth frontman Nergal is not like most people. And with Evangelion, Behemoth has delivered the band’s most definitive statement to date. We caught up with Nergal to learn more about the making of Evangelion and the liberation of doing exactly what you want.

KITTIE: Kittie is a heavy metal success story. Armed with their latest album, In the Black, a new label home at E1 Entertainment, and a revived sense of having to get it done in the face of a heartbreaking tragedy, the Lander sisters are proof that this Kittie does indeed have nine lives. Perhaps more, as Morgan Lander lays it all on the line.

CONVERGE: has been releasing some of the most abrasive, violent, and achingly emotional heavy music to be unleashed upon the world for almost 20 years. Axe to Fall, their eighth studio album, displays a band that is not only as hungry as ever but continues to kick at the limitations of the genre in stunning style. We spoke with vocalist Jacob Bannon to learn more.

JEFFREE STAR: It should come as no surprise that Jeffree Star has two Pomeranian pups. They are fabulous creatures, which is how the singer / musician / makeup artist / fashionista / internet celeb fancies himself. The self-styled “Queen of the Internet” remains unintimidated by his detractors and was fresh off this year’s Warped Tour when he was in promotional mode for his first full-length album, Beauty Killer.

SKELETONWITCH: Smashing their way out of Athens, Ohio, Skeletonwitch has been garnering a great deal of attention due to their fresh take on black metal and thrash, as well as the band’s relentless touring. With the neck snapping fury of their new album Breathing the Fire unleashed, guitarist Scott Hedrick explains the process behind this refreshingly down-to-earth outfit.

SAOSIN: Though they began recording their second full-length, In Search of Solid Ground, with a slew of different producers, Saosin decided to produce five of the 13 tracks on the album themselves and assign mixing duties to guitarist Beau Burchell. Fortunately, bassist Chris Sorenson takes a break from his busy schedule to talk about the new album, becoming Saosin, and the band’s brief foray into reality broadcasting.
