'Death Metal Angola' is a powerful new documentary which explores the impact of extreme metal on young people in war-torn Africa, as well as the actual bands that perform the music. The award-winning documentary has been making the festival circuit worldwide, gaining much praise for the film's heart and passionate characters.
It's been a banner year for Jason Newsted, whose eponymous band has emerged as a major metal presence. Loudwire recently had a chance to speak with Newsted, and in the first part of our interview, he talked all about his participation at the upcoming Bass Player Live! Concert. Now, in Part 2, he reflects on the band's summer participation on the Gigantour festival and talks about guitarist Mike Mushok's status in Newsted once he returns to Staind, among other topics. Check out Part 2 of our interview with Jason Newsted below.
Right after Between the Buried and Me launched NYC fans into orbit on Oct. 16 by performing 'The Parallax II: Future Sequence,' in its entirety, we headed backstage to talk with BTBAM guitarist Paul Waggoner. The interview itself was quite interesting as it was, but almost every member of the band popped in at some point, sometimes for just a moment and sometimes to add a massive contribution that all BTBAM fans will love to read.
