Still feeling full from Thanksgiving dinner the night before, I and Whitson of Lifehacker fame trudged into the depths of Detroit to Blondies where we got the chance to sit down and interview Mark Jansen, guitarist and founding member of Epica. We discussed the tour, an upcoming album, the status of an Epica live DVD and horror movies. You can check out the exclusive audio interview, along with live shots, after the jump. Also, don’t forget to check out our interview
with Henrik of Scar Symmetry, the openers of Epica.
Bloody-Disgusting caught up with Henrik Ohlsson, drummer of Scar Symmetry, during their US tour with headliner Epica. We started off talking about the previous night’s party and transitioned into how soon we can expect a new album to finally chatting about horror movies. You can check out the interview after the jump.

for helping me out with the video and live photos. Check out his articles if you need some help with making your computer run a bit more awesome.
70000 TONS OF METAL will sail Monday, January 24, 2011 aboard the Royal Caribbean “Majesty of the Seas” from Miami FL to Cozumel, Mexico and will not return you to the real world for four days until Friday, January 28, 2011.
Make no mistake, 70000 TONS OF METAL is not your grandma’s cruise. It’s also not one of the cruises that share the ship with normal cruise guests. This is an all heavy metal cruise! Can you imagine that? A whole luxury cruise ship full of metalheads? And since there is no backstage area you will have the opportunity to mingle side-by-side with the artists in this incredibly fan-friendly scenario that has no comparison. It’s like everyone has a backstage pass!
Female fronted Spanish symphonic gothic metallers Diabulus In Musica have uploaded the first new song of their much anticipated debut album ‘Secrets’. Please surf over to the bands MySpace HERE
to check out Come To Paradise. ‘Secrets’ will be released on the 25th of May in North America.
Frontlady Zuberora comments the song as follows: “This is one of our favourite songs from the album. Actually, is the second one we’ve written when we started with DIM, so it’s kinda special for us. It’s full of energy and we never get tired of it! This is why we thought that ‘Come to Paradise’ was the most suitable song to open ‘Secrets’ and welcome all of you to our special world!”
