\r\n Balance of Power are a unique melodic – progressive metal band which has been around for enough years to have gained our respect and love. Their latest release Heathen Machine has been a hit in our country and this year they are filling us up on the story so far with a DVD release, which includes, DVD, live album and a compilation of their greatest hits.
\r\nKamelot are a rising promising band in the metal scene. I wouldn’t like to put them in the narrow barriers of the power metal genre as they are becoming more and more experimental with every new album. We had the chance of having a brief e mail interview with Thomas Youngblood, founder and guitarist of Kamelot, just before they announced the addition of the new keyboardist and from what he told as Kamelot have a DVD on the works and are still touring to support The Black Halo album.
Last Sunday we had an extensive interview with Founder and former guitarist of Manowar RossTheBoss. He told us about his current project Brain Surgeons of NYC, his whereabouts since Manowar, about the reunion consert he did with the band last July, the possibility of recruiting with the band for a world tour and the chances of releasing a new album with Manowar. Ross told the metal scene in America is dead and the murder is the music industry and promises to visit Greece as soon as possible.
Well, first of all I want to congratulate you cause I think that you are one of the True Death Metal bands nowadays without keyboards and electronic elements (like the new bands from Sweden), without clean vocals and melodic or even melancholic elements in your music. No melodies, only hate and True Death Metal feeling. How do you feel that you are in a band like Kaamos?
\r\nWell, I don’t know what it’s like not being in Kaamos. But I am very pleased with our efforts so far \r\n

\r\nWould you mind giving us a brief description of what Bolt Throwers writing process is like?
