On Tuesday we told you that we’re sponsoring an AWESOME tour this winter with a four band bill, and while we can’t tell you all the bands on the bill just yet, we can tease that info out for you. So every day for the rest of this week, we’ll be posting an interview with a member of each band on the bill, featuring questions designed to help you guess who they are without spoiling the surprise. Then, this Monday, October 12, we’ll reveal the complete line-up for the tour!

The first bands announced were Mutiny Within and Arsis. Yesterday, many of you correctly guessed that the third band is none other than the legendary Exodus! The band just announced a January 15 release date for their sure-to-be killer new DVD/CD set, Shovel Headed Tour Machine (Live At Wacken And Other Assorted Atrocities), and with a little luck, 2010 will also bring us the release of The Atrocity Exhibition – Exhibit B. These guys are true pioneers, a band that pretty much every metal band since has owed some debt to, and they absolutely SLAY live.

After the jump, check out the interview with a member of the headlining band. See if you can guess who it is just based on his or her answers!!!

The band is based in Sweden.

Does your band have male members, female members, or some mix thereof?

It’s a mix thereof!

Does your band utilize clean vocals, screaming, or some mix thereof?

Screams and growls – no whiney, pseudo clean vocals.

How many guitar players in your band?


Does your band have a drummer?

Thanks for playing along, mystery guest. Please tell us one another random fact of your choosing that might help our readers guess who you are.

Alright, this is it everyone! Who wants to take a guess as to the identity of the last band on the bill?
