On yet another bitterly cold night in the deadest part of Toronto winter, I picked up Rue Morgue’s ever-loving Gore-Met from his brand new penthouse suite in Toronto’s nether region for another hotly anticipated extreme metal show: the return of the unstoppable death metal monsters Cannibal Corpse. Rounding out this ferocious bill was Sweden’s Tribulation (reviewed in RM #135), their satanic countrymen Aeon, and Poland’s mighty blackened death horde Behemoth. Of course, the obvious thing to do would be to book an interview with Cannibal Corpse – a huge favourite of el Gore-Met – but we thought we’d change it up and take on one of the little guys. After all, some of the finest extreme metal must be excavated from the underground, so after a satisfyingly chunky and technically proficient set by Aeon, we headed to the Phoenix’ foul-smelling backstage for a short interview with founding guitarist Zeb Nilsson.
