The Ebony Tower - Walls & Words
The Ebony Tower mergers an interest in literature  with walled noise, which is a rather unique idea for the genre.  The project started in summer of 2014, and has so far got a lot of respected & praise from with-in the scene in general. It's based in Greeley Colorado, and behind it is one Mitchell Rotunno. In a short time it has amassed quite a large discography. Taking in coming on for 30 + releases, which feature a lot of multi disc CDR sets, cassette releases, a few split releases, and  one or two digital only releases. The project takes it’s name  from 1974 John Fowles book of the same name-  which is  a collection of five novellas and short stories with interlacing themes, each of which is  based around a medieval myth. Mitchell was kind enough to agree to give M[m] a email interview, where he discusses the projects origins, it’s themes, and his love of modern classical  minimalism.
Innsmouth - From the Depths
Australia’s Innsmouth is  one of my favourite recent  black/ death metal discoveries. Since stumbling upon their debut Consumed by Elder Sign early last year, the band’s work has been getting constant playtime. Their single-minded adherence to flawless, grooving riffs that teeter on the edge of a knife between unspeakable savagery and all-encompassing, horrific majesty brings me back again and again. Unique amongst Australia’s death metal scene, Innsmouth’s pitch-black death metal doesn’t truck with dissonance and technicality, forgoing the crazed atmosphere found in the works of Portal and Antediluvian for a decidedly old-school, foul approach. Although the band is in (hopefully) its beginning stages, they’ve managed to hit it out of the park with each of their four releases. I had the honor to conduct an interview with these vile denizens of Arkham to speak about their influences and the goings-on in their elusive depths. Answering the questions for the band was the bands vocalist & guitarist  Beau Dyer
Martin Kay - Metal Bound
Martin Kay is a Australian sound artists, field recordist, & sound designer- he’s more interesting figures presently working with-in the whole field recording/ sound art field at present.  His 2014 release All Things Metal (on 3Leaves) stands as one of the more consistent & replayble release to appear from the field recording genre in sometime. Below is his first ever interview, which was carried out via email.
Denver Noise Fest 2015 - Harsh Vibes in the Mile High City
Over the first weekend in May, 30+ artists and throes of noise connoisseurs filled the Rhinoceropolis for the 6th annual Denver Noise Fest (DNF). Based in Denver, Colorado, the Rhinoceropolis serves as a long running concert and art space. As if a weekend of noisy activities isn’t enough reason to celebrate, DNF 2015 also happened to coincide with the Rhinocerpolis’s 10 year anniversary. DNF was started by Todd Novosad and John Gross back in 2010, but after Novosad migrated to Florida in 2012, Gross became the fest’s primary mover and shaker. Gross was a busy guy all weekend and when he wasn’t running around making sure things were moving smoothly or performing with his band Page 27, he could often be found somewhere chanting his mantra, “death to false noise!”
Ecco - Grindhouse Walls
Ecco is a French project that creates searing  ‘n’ sleazed walled noise  based around the weird, perverse & violent grindhouse movies of the 60’s & 70’s.  It’s one of the more recent projects from the highly prolific & multi project linked Julien Skrobek (The Killer Came From The Bronx ,Ghost, The Sandman Wears A Mask, Ruine, Butch Bag, Gasp, Ruine, etc)- it also stands as one of my favourite of his many projects, as it managers to capture the sleaze, violent, and often tongue-in-cheek vibe of the best grind house movies.  The project started off around late summer 2014, & Julien kindly agreed to give us a email interview.
Andrew Liles - The Monster-Maker

Andrew Liles is one of the most prolific & respected figures working in British experimental music & sound. Over the years he’s worked with the likes of: Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Faust, Tony Wakeford, The Hafler Trio, and many others.  One of  his most sonically varied series of solo works comes in the form of the Monster series- this started in 2010, and so far they have been 15 releases under this banner- the releases have moved through various different sonic & musical styles, but one of the most recent releases has really seen him push the genre boat out. And that release is the Snuff Box- which takes in three CD’s, and finds him authentically recreating various types of different horror movie scores. Andrew kindly agreed to give us a email interview discussing the Snuff Box, and the Monster series in general. This is the third time we’ve interviewed him at M[m].
