THE TIME BANDITS

THEY MAY SOUND RETRO BUT THERE’S NOTHING OLD HAT ABOUT VANCOUVER’S SPELL. ONE LISTEN TO THEIR NEW ALBUM ‘FOR NONE AND ALL’ AND WE’RE SURE YOU’LL AGREE. CAM MAYHEM DISPELS THE MYTHS

We’re discussing the timeless modern band/old influences question with Spell bassist/vocalist Cam Mayhem. It’s a tired subject, but the Canadian musician has some pertinent views on it.

“I don’t see any conflict there at all,” he states. “Of course we’re a modern band – it’s 2016. No one lives in a bubble where it’s still 1973, we’re all inescapably influenced by the world around us. And we welcome this, we love contemporary bands as much as past ones – we’re inspired by the other bands on the Bad Omen roster, for example, and we love the current Swedish scene and the Toronto heshers, as well as many others! Any band who just tries to recreate some moment in the past is a parody and caricature by default. Why pretend to be something that you were never part of to begin with? We try to create the most relevant music possible, to ourselves, right now. It just happened that we never watched much TV or listened to the radio, so many of our musical heroes were discovered in the dollar bins at local record stores.”

About Terrorizer Magazine

This month’s cover stars are 25 years old this year and have just released their tenth album, so for Katatonia it’s a double whammy. But with age comes clarity and knowledge and as you’ll have heard for yourselves, the band’s new release ‘The Fall Of Hearts’ is such a brilliant piece of melancholic metal. Perhaps not the most obvious of coverstars, it’s safe to say that Katatonia deserve the honour through consistently delivering awesome albums and going the distance when others have fallen by the wayside. I know you’ll enjoy José’s story as much as I did reading it for the first time. This issue is packed, as always, with a cross-section of brutality and extremity and was brought to you as certain staff members recover from two of the best festivals in the calendar – namely Roadburn and Ritual Festival. You can read about both in this ‘ere issue too.
