Interview with Jorge vocalist of Eshtadur done by Patrick posted on 8-19-17


Interview  with  Jorge  vocalist  of  Eshtadur  done  by  Patrick


1.Hello  Jorge   how  are  things  going  in  Colombia these  days?Please  introduce  yourself  to  the  readers?

Nice to meet you Patrick,  Jorg here of Eshtadur, all here great and working a lot, thanks to all the readers, I am 27 and since I was 15 I've been dreaming with playing and having a well known metal band, I have a  Bachelor in music and I play soccer as a hobbie.

2.When  did you  first   get  the  idea  to  form  this  band?How  did you  choose  the  name Eshtadur  does it have  a  special  meaning?


When I started basic school at 12 I saw by first time a music room, with drums and guitars, I wanted to play drums, then I got some tapes from Metallica, listenning to battery, I just had to listen to those acoustic guitars and then the riffs, immediately I wanted to play that. When I was 15 I founded Eshtadur with some friends, I played heavy metal first but never done something serious before till Eshtadur, the name's meaning is taken from a greek author who referes to Eshtadur as Rebellion of angels, there is known, there several kind of Rebellion in antique books, Eshtadur is the Rebellion of the angels.


3.What  is  the  current  line-up  of the  band?Who  would you  say  are  the bands  biggest  influences?


Current Line up is Victor on the bass, Mauro in drums and Sebas on guitars, we have been together over a year, ans we really want to make a lot of things for our future, influences are very vast, sebas is a pure thrash metal fan, such as Victor, he likes Judast priest and heavy metal, Mauro is very fan of grind, black and death metal, we like bands like Dismember, Dissection, at the gates, In flames.

4.Mother Gray  is  the  bands third full-length release  does the whole  band  take  part in the  writing process  or does  one member  take care of everything?


I have been always interested in sharing ideas and arrangements with others, however due to the turn of events, I have played with a lot of musicians, being pretty exigent to find those who want to risk and engage as much as I want, people with other priorities in better words, so after changing a lot of members I have spend much of the time alone and I developed a method and ideas and style, so I take care of everything, music, lyrics, concepts, arrangements.


5.Jorge  you  handle  the  vocals  for the  band  so I figure  you  write  the lyrics  for the music.What  are  some  subjects you  wrote  about  on  Mother Gray ?

I wrote about pretty bad times I had, depression, dark energies, was far away from my wife, I almost died in a car accident, so all tracks talk about that, when I got some guts and motivation, I wrote "Plaguemaker" and "Time hole to paris", about how people try to turn you down, and how man is the perfect weapon to destroy all that the world gives by nature. The song "Desolation" is dedicated to my wife who came back with me, we are really better now fortunately thanks lol. The song "Belong to nowhere" is a mix of how I felt without my half my partner and that I didn't have a Father which makes me an angry antipathic man sometimes. The mother gray is the nature becoming death, Plague, decease, devastation, illness, decay.


6.Besides  Mother Gray  are  any of the  bands  previous  releases still  available  for purchase?Besides  physical  releases is  their  any other  merchandise available if  yes what is available  and where  can the  readers buy  it?

All material is sold out, we only have 20 or 30 Cds of Oblivion EP in digipack, but you can find all discography in digital download or streaming at Bandcamp.com/Eshtadur, you can purchase songs or albums.


7.Are  their  any  shows  or tours  coming up  in support  of Mother Gray? If yes  where  will  the  band  be  playing?

We are planning to do some shows in Colombia in a few months and we would like to book something dor Europe we'll see.


8.Eshtadur  comes out  of  the  Colombian  metal  scene  what is your  opinion  of  Colombia's metal  scene?

I have so much respect for my country's metal scene, very exigent, all bands that success here are over 15 or 20 years old, you have to work hard to be recognized, however we are growing and becoming better, there are international bands coming around, bigger concerts are made nowadays which helps the scene to be closer to something better, like in Europe or US.


9.Who  are  your  all-time   favorite  bands  coming  of  Colombia ?And  are  their  any  new  bands you  feel  the readers  should  watch  out  for? My favourite band is a heavy metal one named KRAKEN, like a Dio from Colombia, KRAKEN is a legend here, I grew up listenning to them. I can recommend the readers to follow Inquisition, Thy Antichrist or Threshold end.


10.Are  their  any  honest  and  reliable  labels or  distro's you  feel  the readers  should  check  out  soon?

Not currently, but you can check some media like Factor Metal, inmigrant records.

11.Besides  metal music do  you  or  any  of the  members  of the band  listen to  any other  forms  of  underground  music?

I personally like orquesta and classical music, jazz, my music of all times is AOR and old hard rock, Survivor, Foreigner, Lynn Turner, Bad english, Journey, Alien, John Taite.


12.Besides  music  we  here  at  Ancient  Visionz  are  huge  movie  fans  do you  like to  watch  movies? If  yes  what is your  favorite  genre and  what  are some of your  favorite  movies?

I love Drama, action, suspense, horror, from Saw to Matrix, or It, Nightmare on elm street, Alien, scify also.


13.Do  you  have  any  favorite  actresses  and  actors  that you  enjoy  watching?

I would like to mention Kevin spacey, Denzel W, Anthony hopkins, Clint Eastwood, Michelle monahgan, Jennifer Aniston, Nicold Kidman, Jodie foster, sigourney weaver, Jim carrey, Stallone.

14.Jorge  besides  working in   Eshtadur   do you  or  any of the  members  currently  play  in  any  other  bands? If yes  please tell the readers  a  little  about them?

I personally only play for Eshtadur, our drummer has other projects, also bassist and guitarist, you should check Goreinhaled, Bang and Expect no mercy bands.


15.Thank  you  Jorge   for taking the time to  fill this  interview  out  do you  have  any  final  comments  for the readers?

No, it has been a pleasure I have fun taking the time, I appreciate a lot this kind of media, your support, your duty, thanks for spreading the word I just want to be closer to more ears and more fans, we have been receiving a lot of messages on our Facebook media, that is something real valuable, we are going to work harder for you¡ lml

STAR WARS NERDING: 1ST ORDER TIE FIGHTER


Pictured is The First Order Tie Figher. I'm that much of a nerd folks, I did not enjoy The Force Awakens, but I own many of the figures, because I like them. My SW themed collection ranges from the OT, Rogue One, Episode 7, and SW Rebels. More pics coming soon. 





GAZ'S NERDING EPISODE 7: POWER RANGERS AND DC'S CYBORG


 I'm not the biggest Power Ranger fan in the world, but I like the figures , and yes I did go see the recent movie. Hmm, maybe I am a bigger Power Ranger fan than I admit? (giggles). 

  Pictured below are: Yellow Ranger, Blue Ranger, Red Ranger, Black Ranger, Dino Green Ranger, and random appearance from DC's Cyborg. I'm still unable to find the Pink Ranger, and I'm not crazy on the Alpha 5 figure. I may expand them further with more Dino Rangers and the Pink Ranger, if I can ever find her in stock somewhere.



FALSE GODS RELEASE NEW VIDEO





New York's FALSE GODS are streaming the entirety of their new EP Reports From Oblivion at New Noise Magazine. 

Stream the EP here: http://newnoisemagazine.com/stream-false-gods-reports-oblivion/

 
Reports From Oblivion will be released tomorrow and will be available on the group's Bandcamp. 

About False Gods:
New York heavy-hitters False Gods have their own take on metal, a unique blend of southern-sludge influenced doom, mixed with some old school thrash-hardcore. The result is brash, bulldozing and in your face, shifting gears like a snow plow coming down the side of a steep mountain.

Coming together in 2015 out of the rubble of the previous band Skeletondealer, False Gods set out with the goal of creating something that wasn’t going to fit into any one metal subgenre. Founding member Greg March recorded the guitars and drums for a demo that would later become the foundation for their debut release. After playing the demo recordings for band-mate Mike Stack they rounded out the line-up and immediately recorded the 5 songs at Force Studios in Ronkonkoma, New York with Producer Joe Cincotta (This is Hell, Suffocation, Incendiary). Their EP Wasteland was released on April 22nd 2016 and extremely positively received by a ravenous audience. Currently the band is doing some regional weekend runs to promote their EP and have already shared the stage with Crowbar, Abigail Williams and Wolvhammer. Plans are in the works for more East Coast runs and a 2017 Fall tour.

With influences ranging from Eyehategod, Crowbar, Godflesh, Carnivore, Black Flag, Integrity, St. Vitus, Amebix, Black Sabbath, Skullflower, SWANS and Killing Joke, the members of False Gods embrace all forms of extreme and heavy music, which in turn helps them fulfill their musical vision: creating powerful sounds, telling the bitter truth of reality and letting the chips fall where they may.

Critically acclaimed loud and heavy metal band TWINGIANT are pleased to announce that they will release their new album Blood Feud via Argonauta Records on October 13th 2017. 
 

The band's guitarist Nikos Mixas commented: "We're so excited to be on the verge of releasing our 3rd full-length album via Argonauta Records.  We've put a lot of work and thought into the material, the production in addition to the artwork concept and we couldn't be more proud of the result!  During every step of the creation process for “Blood Feud”, we took our time and we feel that we’re releasing our best effort yet by a longshot.  In the past, we’ve been lumped into the Stoner Rock/Metal/Sludge scene, but that’s really not the case anymore, “Blood Feud” may have some of those elements, but ultimately, it’s a metal album.”

Power Theory Begins Pre-Production for New Album to be Released in 2018


(Robert Ballinger - Guitars, Jeff Rose - Vocals, Alan D'Angelo - Bass, Carlos Alvarez - Guitars, Johnny Sasso - Drums)

U.S. Heavy Metal crew POWER THEORYhas recently begun pre-production on the follow up to their Driven By Fear album with producer / engineer Carlos Alvarez of Dirty Viking Audio who is also currently playing guitar live with the band. Guitarist Rob "BB" Ballinger fills in the details below.

"The goal is to wrap up pre-production sometime in fall 2017 and begin actual album recordings shortly after with a release aimed for Spring 2018. Carlos Alvarez, who worked with the band for Driven By Fear and the recently released EP Something Old, Something New & Something F**king LIVE!!! From Europe, will again be producing, recording and mixing. Mastering will most likely again be handled by Brett Caldas-Lima of Tower Studio in France. The as yet untitled follow up will see POWER THEORY pushing their Traditional /  Power Metal style cemented on Driven By Fear even further in terms of heaviness, speed and intricacy, while sacrificing none of their established hallmarks of melodic, anthemic songwriting. Song titles set to appear include "Draugr" and "King Of Lies" with the band shooting for around 10 tracks overall."

GAZ'S NERDOM PT2: DIY COMIC STORE THEME


 I try to keep sense of a comic store in my place, albeit mine is small scale, but I like the theme. Amongst the titles below are Marvel Now, DC Rebirth, Image, Dark Horse, and 2000AD. Everything from Dr Strange, Predator vs Aliens, The Flash, X Force, Thunderbolts, Batman, Green Arrow, Deathstroke, and many more. I'll be uploading pics of each title and writing a few thoughts about each book. Comics and movies are sometimes unintentionally neglected on Ancient Visionz due to the metal we promote. 

  The Black Panther comic on the left is an awesome read, Iron Fist was just ok, and I haven't read the pictured MoonKnight yet.



GAZ'S NERDOMS PART 1: ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN BOX


 Eventually (jokingly speaking), I'm planning to write a series of dollar reviews on the various comics I've been reading. Outside of metal and punk, I'm a huge colossal nerd. It is another reason the chat show is returning. I love discussing all things nerdom, comics, movies, and mosh! If you love comics and movies, then contact me, and we could start up a regular feature on Ancient Visionz Talk Radio.

  Anyway, below is my Ultimate Spiderman Box! It will soon be quite clear how much of a Spidey head I am (laughs). Oh, I also wear Marvel & DC socks (laughs again). I'm a sweaty person.

Overview


Often mistakenly taken for the orthodox Death Metal band they can seem to sound like if not really paying attention to what they create, SAVAGE ANNIHILATION are a unique band pushing the envelope of their old-school influences to embark the listener into a world of their very own.

Lyrically, it’s gross. It’s crude. It’s raw. It’s dismembered and grotesque. Musically, it’s brutal. It’s heavy. It’s violent… but there’s far more than what the rotten eye can see: SAVAGE ANNIHILATION’s creations are all part of a global concept and it’s all about hopelessness and desperation.

Started fifteen years ago, the band took ten years to shape, define, re-define and re-shape their unique artistic approach and release their debut, “Cannibalisme, hérésie et autres sauvageries” (2012) and it took them five more years to come with the sequel, “Quand s’abaisse la croix du blasphème“, going even further into their post-apocalyptic visions of a world beyond doomed.

Following the path started with its predecessor, the new album is total nihilism, pure heresy and blasphemy, gore beyond gore ; savage, annihilating but it’s first and foremost an artistic, conceptual story where salvation doesn’t exist.

Fewer yet longer songs, all connected one to the other make “Quand s’abaisse la croix du blasphème” a tough listen, an oppressing experience and a challenge somehow, and when you think you will finally see the light at the end of the tunnel when you reach the last track of this nightmarish journey into gruesome horror (and few will be strong enough to survive such an unsustainable nauseating bad trip!), “Le tombeau de l’atrocité” featuring international opera singer Claire Motté again (she was already a guest on their debut), you’ll soon discover this beautiful moment of sublime grace is in fact the last spark of life into your eye before you die.

Welcome to your most fascinating nightmare.
