saraleitao01I am very happy to present you an interview with Sara Leitão from Epic Melodic Death Metal band DARK OATH from Portugal today. Till now we did not have so many women presented in our project, so there is something we need to improve, starting with Sara today. The last release of the band was quite a while ago - the full-length album ‘When Fire Engulfs the Earth’ was released on 15 April 2016. I hope that we will get something new from the band soon, but until this will happen, please enjoy the interview with Sara about her tattoos.

mrseidel introOur guest today is Mr. Seidel from Norwegian band TROLLFEST. The band describes themselves as the pioneers of true Norwegian Balkan Metal. The band is really something special with their funny show outfits or their cartoon videos to their songs. On 19th of March the band has released their new single ‘Happy Heroes’. Anyone that missed the live shows last year has hope to see the band live, because they are confirmed for “Das Oktober Metalfest” on 2nd October in Eindhoven, Netherlands. But let’s come back to our main topic, Mr. Seidel is not only an amazing artist but he has the perfect tattoo collection of super heroes. So let’s check them out!

tomjackjackson introToday we have a guest from England. Tom Jack Jackson is a musician, model, artist and wanderer. For four years, Tom was the bassist of alternative band DIAMOND DAYS, but in February 2017 the band has announced the end of their work. Today you can follow Tom on Facebook and Instagram to see his work as a model. I was really impressed of his tattoos and was lucky when I got the possibility to speak about them.

lukethompson introLuke Thompson is bass player and backing vocalist of VOID MATTER - a five-piece band from Brisbane, Australia. Their melodies are fused with raw energy, influenced from many spheres of heavy music, and they creating their own blend of Metal. But our today’s topic is not the music but as always tattoos…

Reflections of Darkness [RoD]: When did you get your first tattoo and what was it? Did it take much time until you decided to get it done?
Luke:My first tattoo was Korean characters on my ribs that say “Taekwon Do”. I was 18 when I got it done so I didn’t waste any time.

kirkmatthews introI am really proud that today we can introduce you interview with Kirk Matthews. He is blending Southwestern style with Americana sound, creating something unique in today’s vast musical landscape. With semblances that evoke traces of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Kris Kristofferson and at times Leonard Cohen. Matthews’ sound is steeped in timeless storytelling and soothing melodies. Having spent a better part of this past decade as a songwriter / producer in Los Angeles, Matthews has a list of award-winning collaborations in the music business and is now stretching his musical wings by stepping into the light as an artist. At 31 December 2020 Kirk has released his new album ‘The color of rust’. Really amazing work! Additionally, I want to talk about the other project of Kirk, which really impressed me: The podcast “Keeping your dreams alive” hosted by Ceekay Jones with different and very interesting guests. And as with all impressing persons, Kirk’s tattoos are impressing too.
