The songs on the compilation are almost always awful, but I love it nonetheless because bad covers are my bread and butter.

Exclusive Interview: THE NAUTILUS

The finest, cerebral, contorted guitar playing I have seen has come from the hands of The Nautilus’ Ross Albrecht.The Nautilus bind the fluid propulsive rhythm of The Black Dahlia Murder and supplement it with Gojira-esque melodies.   Also, add the finest British Columbian weed with overt Canadian thrash influences and you would have the slightest hint of what they sound like.

Having shared the stage with bands like Tesseract, Cloudkicker, The Ocean, Mouth of The Architect, and Intronaut, the band should have not been too surprised to see their debut EP being raved about by MetalSucks via their “Unsigned and Unholy”posts. Ross gives us a briefing on the Vancouver band.
