JØTNARR: “On a Scale, King Diamond Is Well Beyond Maiden In Terms of Cheddar” [Video Interview]

"We consider [ourselves] a little bit different [than black metal]. There's definitely black metal in there, but that's not the only thing."

Recently when I interviewed Ufomammut, Urlo from the band said: “We are the only ones able to create the alchemy behind Ufomammut. I think that it wouldn’t be the same if one of us was not in the band anymore.” I feel the same way about Jøtnarr. Chris Moore, Simon Rollo and Oliver Harvey are three top blokes who have great chemistry which resulted in some absolute top releases, the most recent being Burn and Bury.

Speaking to the boys in a graveyard outside Colchester Arts Centre before the show with Conan and Khost, we spoke about the show, the writing of Burn and Bury, Incineration Fest, their influences and more.

About Jack (874 Articles)
I am a recent graduate from the University of Essex in Colchester where by the luck of Odin I met the editor, Dom. I first got into metal when I was 13 and now I am 22 and own an uncountable amount of band T-shirts. I also regularly attend gigs (local and in neighbouring areas) as well as festivals. My musical taste is varied; I like nu metal (my first love), thrash, black, death, doom, folk, sludge (my favourite genre), symphonic and many more of the multiple genres that metal has to offer, I even like some metalcore (I know it's a dirty word within some metal circles but some of it is outstanding). One of my most memorable metal moments was meeting Grand Magus at the Bloodstock signing tent and having the whole tent to myself, spending a few minutes talking to them.
