Edge of Time #15
Issue #15 salutes the diversity of metal in 2000 and positives of the looming Internet age. Interviews include some real treasures like talks with Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth (after the “Still Life” album when there were still pretty cult and underground) and Pain of Salvation’s Gildenlow brothers (after their live performance at the very first edition of ProgPower Europe festival in 1999 following their great sophomore album “One Hour By The Concrete Lake”). Norwegian technical metal unicorns Spiral Architect have been interviewed after the release of their debut “Sceptic’s Universe” which stormed the small but demanding scene and exceeded already high expectations of many who waited for the album. Other featured bands are Agent Steel, Babylon Whores, Borknagar, Darkstar, Digital Ruin, Enchant, Evil Wings, Fatal Opera, Martyr, Mayadome, Nocturnus, Symmetry, Stratovarius, and many more.
