Kaaos TV conducted an interview with vocalist Tomas Lindberg (LOCK UP, AT THE GATES, DISFEAR) at this year’s edition of the Tuska open-air metal festival, which was held June 29 – July 1 in Helsinki, Finland. You can now watch the chat below.
LOCK UP bassist Shane Embury (also of NAPALM DEATH) was unable to make the band’s current festival appearances and was temporarily replaced by Dan Lilker (NUCLEAR ASSAULT, BRUTAL TRUTH, S.O.D., VENOMOUS CONCEPT).
LOCK UP‘s latest album, “Necropolis Transparent”, was released in North America in July 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records. The CD was recorded in November-December 2010 at HVR Studios in Ipswich, United Kingdom and was mixed in January 2011.
“Necropolis Transparent” features guest appearances by HYPOCRISY/PAIN mainman (and one-time LOCK UP vocalist) Peter Tägtgren along with Jeff Walker (CARCASS, BRUJERIA).
Originally formed by Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT), Nick Barker (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR) and Jesse Pintado (NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER) to blast out the most caustic, skin-flaying brand of deathgrind, LOCK UP was joined by the raw throat of Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY) for its debut album, 1999’s fearsome “Pleasure Pave Sewers”, and Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR) for 2002’s “Hate Breeds Suffering”, touring Japan and then falling into inactivity.
Now joined by guitarist Anton Reisenegger (Chile’s PENTAGRAM, CRIMINAL) in place of the late Jesse Pintado, LOCK UP is back in the most uncompromising style possible.
Professionally filmed video footage of LOCK UP‘s entire performance at this year’s edition of the Hellfest festival, which was held June 15-17 in Clisson, France, can be seen below.
