FOR THE RIGHT REASONS

MIKE PAPARO HAS JUST GOT OFF TOUR AND IS RATHER TIRED. SO TIRED, IN FACT, THAT HIS ANSWERS TO OUR QUESTIONS ARE RATHER “INCOMPETENT”, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? INTER ARMA’S NEW ALBUM ‘PARADISE GALLOWS’ IS SO GOOD, WE FORGIVE HIM!

It’s been less than twelve hours since the members of Richmond, Virginia’s Inter Arma returned to the warmth of their own beds in the security of their own homes. The engine is still cooling on a short two-week jaunt through America’s eastern half and vocalist Mike Paparo knows it’s not the ideal time to be the mouthpiece responding to questions about anything, let alone Terrorizer’s line of penetrating queries. Mike seeks our – and by default, your – forgiveness for his sleep-deprived, post-tour haze, going so far as to jokingly ask if he could offer “any more vague and incomplete answers to your questions” at the conclusion of our half-hour on the horn. It’s no sweat, dude. At least you weren’t a curmudgeonly dick to us. At least you didn’t exude rock star exasperation and arrogant hostility towards the press. At least you picked up the fucking phone when you were scheduled to. We also recognise that touring is hard work and not the non-stop party many still crack it up to be. Still, it’s a line of work Paparo and his band mates – drummer T.J. Childers, bassist Joe Kerkes and guitarists Steven Russell and Trey Dalton – embrace whole heartedly.

About Terrorizer Magazine

Everyone loves vinyl. Whether people actually play it or simply have it on the shelves to look at and appreciate the artwork in all its glory, while listening to the audio through devices however, is another matter. This month sees a new vinyl release that will ensure that people will actually play their new 12 inches of black stuff. It’s the ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ hologram soundtrack vinyl. The week this issue went to print I was fortunate enough to attend a playback of this ingenious (and extremely geeky, yet cool) release. And while I soaked up the atmosphere of Abbey Road’s Studio 2, feeling all the creativity of the room and the vibe contained within, it really dawned on me why this is so special. Star Wars is legendary. Many of us have grown up with the films from an early age and it becomes part of your DNA, without a doubt. Its music is also special, I challenge any band out there to have the balls to cover John Williams’ compositions. And now the new film’s soundtrack gives the vinyl collector a reason to play their record and geek out at the same time. What makes it special? Tristan Duke’s holograms of both the Millennium Falcon and a Tie Fighter that magically appear above the vinyl while the brilliant musicality of John Williams’ composition blasts out of your speakers. Genius! It elevates the whole audio and magical experience to unchartered new heights in the musical world. It’s a soundtrack brimming with depth and of course, it’s affinity with the metal community is inescapable – after all metal is the ultimate Dark Side. So while I go back to my sci-fi world, I’ll let you enjoy this month’s issue! I have loved Nails for years and it’s an honour to have them on this month’s cover. Enjoy reading their story as well as a heap of other great features, news and reviews! See you next month Darren Sadler
