Formed over two decades ago by members of Asphyx, Soulburn eschew the speed-for-speed's sake dictum of death and back metal. Instead, the band employs a sinister mid-paced stomp that hearkens back to the genre's earliest recordings, whilst maintaining the level of professionalism you'd expect from scene veterans.

I spoke with Soulburn founder/guitarist Eric Daniels and vocalist/bassist Twan van Geel about the band's history, and the ways Bathory influenced their approach. We also discussed the themes behind their latest album Noa's Dark, and how the production reflects their belief that extreme art has to hurt.

My thanks to Eric and Twan for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
