LA's Kommand base their sound around death metal's crusty early years, when bands like Nihilist and Bolt Thrower still retained their punk rawness - a background that Kommand has in common with those legendary acts.

I spoke with guitarist Ian Logan about how Kommand arose from his previous band Hoax, and how he feels about death metal fans saying that these former hardcore punks should "stay in their own lane". We also spoke about how his riff-writing style changed for their second album Death Age, and whether the History Channel is responsible for their war-themed lyrics.

My thanks again to Ian for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
