Inter Arma

Posted Sept. 25, 2016, 1:28 p.m.

There was something distinct about Inter Arma and their sound from the very start, with their first release Sundown, but since then these guys have truly erupted into something terrifying, with Sky Burial and The Cavern paving the way and now capitalising with Paradise Gallows. We caught up with TJ Childers, drummer of the band, to discuss their new album, their evolution as a band, their collaborations, and the manner in which they achieve that unique sound.

Looking back are you happy with the album? Is there anything you ...

Good Old War (II)

Posted June 7, 2012, 6:20 a.m.

On the heels of March’s Come Back as Rain release, alternative folk band Good Old War met up with Scene Point Blank on their current tour to talk about songwriting, instrumentation, and current music in general. The band was in Burlington, VT to play a show at Higher Grounds before Keith Goodwin took ill and the show was cancelled. Despite missing out on the show, fortunately we still got a chance to talk with guitarist Dan Schwartz. Since the April interview, Goodwin has recovered and the band is back on the road. Later this summer they will be joining ...
