Interview: OBITUARY

Posteado en Inicio el 27 dUTC December dUTC 2018 por RISE!

Anthrax, Lamb of God and Obituary are the bands who are touring with Slayer in the European leg of their final tour, which had a date in Oslo, Norway, last December 6th. Just a couple of hours before the show started with Florida’s Death Metal legends Obituary, RISE! had a conversation with their bass player Terry Butler, who previously was part of Massacre lineup in different times, also Six Feet Under for almost twenty years and he was part of Death playing on their “Spiritual Healing” album as well, among other projects. He’s an institution when it comes to Death Metal scene. On this interview, he reveals the insights of the bands he was part of, how he joined Obituary, his opinion on Crowdfunding platforms and record labels, the Slayer final tour and much more!


RISE!: – First of all, how’s the tour going with Slayer, Anthrax, Lamb of God so far? It’s the Slayer farewell tour, how do you feel about it?

Terry Butler: It’s a great feeling to be part of it, you know? It’s always been a dream to be on tour with Slayer. It just took 30 years to get there but we are here (laughs). The tour is great, all the bands are killer and everyone’s getting along well, so it’s a nice tour.

R!: – You’ve been playing in Obituary for eight years now, but how did you join in the first place? When did you meet the guys?

TB: I’ve known them since the mid-80’s, we live in the same town. I’ve known them for a long time, over thirty years. But they gave me a call one day, I heard that Frank (Watkins, R.I.P.) was fired from Obituary and they needed some help on a tour. They called me to ask if I wanted to help and I said “Yes”. So I’ve helped them for a year and quit Six Feet Under in 2011, then I joined Obituary full time.

Interview: WHIP

Posteado en Inicio el 26 dUTC December dUTC 2018 por RISE!

When we think of Norway in musical terms, Black Metal is the first genre that comes to our minds. However, Whip is a Grindcore-based band which turned twenty in the current year 2018. After several demos and EPs, they finally released their debut album, “Digitus Impudicus” in 2013, followed by the “Repulsion and Disorder” EP which came out three years later, and currently they’re working on their second LP. The current four-piece lineup has invited RISE! to one of their rehearsals before their twentieth anniversary show and this resulted in a very funny and interesting interview that you can read below.


RISE!: – The band was founded in 1998, so you Sturt (Jens B. Johansen) were a teenager back then. How was it all at the time? Was it just a high school joke band and then it got more serious or how was the process?

Sturt: Back then I was living in Brønnøysund, in the middle of Norway. We had a few other bands, some serious Black Metal kind of stuff, and one summer we were only two people who liked Metal in all the city. That was me and another guy. He played drums and I played guitar and bass, so we played around a bit, but every summer he went to Finland for holidays because his mother was from Oulu, Finland, and one summer he came home and discovered “Rapture” album by Impaled Nazarene, that was summer of ’98. He said “we have to start this Punk-inspired Metal band!”, so he had four or five songs and I made four or five songs and we recorded our first demo in summer. So Whip started as a burning desire for the other guy in Whip to play some Punk.

R!: – After your second demo released in 2000, you’ve been inactive until 2005, what happened at the time and what have you been doing during that period?

S: After our first demo in ’98, I moved to Oslo in ’99, I had to go to school and the other guy in Whip, Jonny, he wasn’t working or anything so he just moved to Oslo too. So he was living here for about half a year, then he moved back to Brønnøysund. It was just the two of us, so when he moved back the band was put in pause. Then he moved to Finland, then he moved back to Brønnøysund, then he moved to California. So a few years later, in 2005, I started getting some members from other projects, so I asked him if I could continue this band without him and he said “Yeah, sure, but just don’t record any of the old demo songs”.
