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.

julienkidam introJulien Kidam is vocalist and songwriter of French Electro Industrial Metal band CHEMICAL SWEET KID and during the last year the band was very productive. On 11 June, the single ‘Lockdown’ was released together with AESTHETIC PERFECTION and on the 2 October the single ‘Pass Auf!’ was released. We have planned the interview with Julien already last year, but it was postponed each time because of Covid-19. Our original plan was to meet during the PROJECT PITCHFORK German tour where CHEMICAL SWEET KID was planned to be special guest. But we needed to adapt our planes to new reality…

charlesraven introI am always very happy when we have guests from far away and now is such case. Charles comes from Mexico City. He is vocalist of the Experimental Metal band SILVER F BULLETS. At Amazon you can find the band’s album ‘Apocalypse’; if you want to listen to more of their music, follow the band at SoundCloud.

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?
Charles:I got my first tattoo at the age of 20 and decided to tattoo the nickname they gave me in high school (Dark) AS - it was with that nickname that my life began to take shape and become what I am now.
