Interview: Richie Londres (Sol Invicto)

Sol Invicto

Two weeks ago I covered news of Sol Invicto‘s first EP being released. Little did I know, that the article would attract attention of none other than one of the members of the band, Richie Londres.

Only thing I could do at that moment (besides counting my blessings it wasn’t Stephen who saw it) was to ask for an interview. Richie was once again very cool about it, and as a result, you get quite a read if I may say so. We talked about a lot of things, from Sol Invicto, metalheads’ point of view on electronic music, trends in music and music industry, to me not being able to visit the West Coast any more without looking over my shoulder.

All in all, you’re up for a treat, so make the jump.


Weak Recap: We be winning, playa

It’s no secret that we’re amazing, and we’re pretty modest about it, too. I mean, the rest of the guys who write for this site aren’t really that awesome, but compared to your boring ass, they’re Gods. I, on the other hand, am absolutely sublime. I truly believe a few decades from now people will be quoting my posts and giving them as examples of literary genius.

So why would I, of all people, interview the other writers for this site? Isn’t it a bit like Mozart interviewing Linkin Park? Yes it is, but unlike Mozart, I am pretty humble. And good looking.

Anyway, make the jump and read my interview with some of metal’s worst writers… Ever.


Deftones guitarist also has a side project!

Stephen Carpenter

We’ve covered Sol Invicto before, when they released a remix of Deftones‘ Diamond Eyes (it was for charity, so we’ll forgive them). Hot on the heels of Chino Moreno’s recently released Crosses (if you expect me to copy paste those ASCII crosses, you can suck my pretty penis), another EP by another Deftones member sees the light on this day.

In case you’re slow, Sol Invicto is a side project by another member of the Deftones, and it’s none other than Stephen Carpenter, the dude with the most horror name ever. You know, the fat one. The really fat one. You can download the EP for free right here, and it’s supposed to be some experimental drum and bass shit.

The band also announced they’ll release a few more EPs in the following months, so be ready for a few more posts which aren’t really related to this website and you could have most likely lived without.


A time for giving

Chi Cheng

An average metalhead probably doesn’t care about Christmas, and even less about Deftones, but it doesn’t mean we can’t be nice. Everyone knows that their bass player, Chi Cheng, had a car accident which left him in a state of coma, and his family pretty much broke.

The thing you can do to contribute is to buy a song by Sol Invicto (Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter‘s side project), which is a remix of “Diamond Eyes.” I know what you’re thinking, “I might as well go and buy the new Linkin Park CD,” but this song is only $0.99, not as shit, and ultimately serves for a higher cause.
