I came across an interview that Henry Rollins did with Pharrell Williams for the “reservechannel” Youtube page. The interview covers a lot of basic info about who Henry Rollins is. If you’ve never heard him speak, or never heard of him at all, it’s a good introduction. I’ve seen Henry Rollins speak 5 times in the last few years. I’m a big fan.

Always trying to learn from my mistakes, I was determined not to wait months before picking up the latest Sevendust, ”Black Out The Sun”, like I did with another fairly recent release for Testament. Over the past several months, there has been building anticipation as the band’s social media presence provided a steady stream of updates. With frequent in studio and behind the scenes videos posted to their YouTube channel, the occasional song snippet, and commentary from the members about the “heaviness” of the songs, it was definitely generating a buzz among fans. As soon as a release date was set, clocks were synchronized worldwide and the countdown started. That countdown came to an end two weeks ago when Black Out The Sun became available everywhere, and I had to have my copy then!

Interview by Jeff Mayfield
I recently traveled to Shreveport, LA to go catch another Eye Empire show on 3/12/13, and had the good fortune to have an interview scheduled with their very intense vocalist Donald “DC” Carpenter. The traffic gods smiled on me, and I arrived at the venue in plenty of time to sit in on their sound check at Voodoo Café. After I got over the “unique” stage layout at the venue, I was quickly caught up in the new tracks they were pounding out. Even in the unpolished atmosphere of a sound check, the new songs are sounding good. Did I mention HEAVY too? I was quickly bobbing my head along with the songs, and of course when they opened up with Idiot and Bull in a China Shop I knew it was going to be another awesome show that night.
