Hey Metal Heads! I met up with “BLACKGUARD” front man “Paul “Ablaze” Zinay” at the House of Blues in Hollywood, CA. on Tuesday, just one of their many tour stops with “POWERGLOVE” and “SYMPHONY X”. A tour in which originally included “SOILWORK” and “NEVERMORE”, until both bands dropped off the bill for various reasons. This didn’t keep these die hard metal heads from pushing forward as the show must go on. I had a chance to interview Paul, as we discussed the current tour, his favorite scary movie, sharing a van with “POWERGLOVE”, bacon, and his best scream queen impression. I will be posting the interview up soon, so stay tuned.
I entered the photo pit while “BLACKGUARD” took the stage, as they pelted me with what was to be a fucking killer show. The aggressive intent of Paul’s vocals, and ferocious wall of sound blasted towards the audience as they banged their heads in content. This was my first time seeing “BLACKGUARD” live, and i must say it wont be my last. They put on a great show, and kept the audiences attention during their entire set. I would say those two things alone are not always easy to achieve for any band. I give this show two horns up \m/ \m/. Check out their band links below for more info on the band, and listen to some tunes.
