Mark Taylor of MetalTalk.net conducted an interview with guitarist Robby Rockbag of Swedish metallers STEELWING when the band played at the Camden Underworld in London, England on January 20. You can now watch the chat below.
STEELWING's second album, "Zone Of Alienation", was released last month via NoiseArt Records. The CD was helmed by producer Rikard Löfgren, who had previously worked with DEATHSTARS, MAMAKIN, ENFORCER and VOMITORY, among others.
According to a press release, "Zone Of Alienation" is a semi-concept album set in a not-so-distant future where the remnants of mankind have fled into outer space. Following the eradication of the Earth after religious wars have gone nuclear, they set out to find new worlds to colonize.
The "Zone Of Alienation" cover artwork was created by Dimitar Nikolov and is an eerie depiction of heavily armed space pioneers setting foot on a hostile planet.

03. Full Speed Ahead!
