The Age Of Metal conducted an interview with Arizona grind masters LANDMINE MARATHON when the band played at the Clubhouse in Tempe, Arizona on Febraury 27 with TOXIC HOLOCAUST and THE CASUALTIES. You can now listen to the chat using the Mixcloud player below.
LANDMINE MARATHON‘s fourth album, “Gallows”, was released in September 2011 via Prosthetic Records. The CD was recorded by LANDMINE MARATHON guitarist Ryan Butler at Arcane Digital Recording Studio (EXHUMED, NIGHTRAGE, MISERY INDEX, PHOBIA) and mastered by Dave Shirk at Sonorous Mastering. The album features the debut of the band’s new drummer, Andy York.
The “Gallows” cover art was created by U.K. artist Rob “Mid ” Middleton, who has previously worked with NAPALM DEATH, EXTREME NOISE TERROR and DEVIATED INSTINCT (in which Middleton plays guitar), among others.
Fronted by vocalist Grace Perry, once heralded by MTV as a “dynamic she-beast” and widely considered one of the most captivating live performers in the metal scene, LANDMINE MARATHON has ascended steadily since its 2006 debut. Much like the apocalyptic sandstorms seen in recent newscasts from LANDMINE‘s hometown of Phoenix, the quintet brings a raw, destructive power to its grinding anthems, revitalizing the sound pioneered by bands like BOLT THROWER and ENTOMBED.
