    1 Hour 32 Minutes with Mike Browning of NOCTURNUS A.D | Episode 19

    1 Hour 32 Minutes with Mike Browning of NOCTURNUS A.D | Episode 19

    Mike Browning is someone you should recognize as the original Vocalist/Drummer of MORBID ANGEL, NOCTURNUS, AFTER DEATH, NOCTURNUS A.D. and INCUBUS. Not the garbage 'Pardon Me' -band but one of the numerous INCUBUS from the metal underground. Reaper Metal FAN CLUB members have their questions for Mike, but it all starts with Morrisound Studio and working with Jim Morris as opposed to Scott Burns. There are a lot of great stories in this episode about Trey Azagthoth, David Vincent and the Florida Death Metal as Mike vividly remembers it!

    60 Minutes with Zachary Ezrin of IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT | Episode 18

    60 Minutes with Zachary Ezrin of IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT | Episode 18

    Zachary Ezrin is the founding member and frontman of IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT who have released their latest 2020 album 'Alphaville' on Century Media. IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT have a knack for interesting imagery and eerie sounding music which embodies a sound and spirit somewhat familiar but largely unfamiliar. The band has risen before our eyes as Tommy G put his seal of approval on the band a few years back with their release Inceste on his label Redefining Darkness Records. This is where INTO THE DARKNESS has a guest that is more current but complex and innovative, making it a perfect fit to dive deeper.

    2 Hours 29 Minutes with Dan Swanö of EDGE OF SANITY | Episode 16

    2 Hours 29 Minutes with Dan Swanö of EDGE OF SANITY | Episode 16

    Dan Swanö is infamous in the Metal world for the bands he’s been involved with such as EDGE OF SANITY, Nightingale, Infestdead, Diabolical Masquerade, Pan.Thy.Monium, Bloodbath, and Ribspreader to name a few . And his Engineer credits read like a metal encyclopedia having worked with seminal acts like Marduk, Dissection, Opeth, Katatonia, November’s Doom, Therion, Incantation, Entails, and so on. This episode is probably the most intense and in-depth we have gone with a guest and we still probably need a part 2 and 3! There is no shortness of breath from Dan so this episode acts as an unwritten memoir of a golden age in metal with various perspectives to describe those cherished times. By the end of this interview you will be left with a hefty homework assignment of discovering all which you may have never heard!
