Guitarist Lorenzo Antonucci of the Queens, New York-based hardcore/metal act SWORN ENEMY is known worldwide for his enthusiasm for a good time, which sometimes (well, all the time) escalates to a level of pure insanity. He recently channeled all of his extra energy and time to creating an outside-the-box, no-holds-barred type of TV show, appropriately named "Mamaluke TV", that is definitely going to take many by surprise. This show is a behind-the-scenes, uncensored look into life of maniacs on the road as Lorenzo asks the questions few are willing to ask.
Watch the debut episode below.
Commented Antonucci: "This is Lorenzo from the 'Mamaluke TV' show. Some of you may know me from the band SWORN ENEMY and some of you may know me as the animal at a show or in the streets. This is my TV show that interviews band members from all kinds of genres in the metal and hardcore world, musician to musician. I'm out there interviewing my friends and other band members about everyday life on the road, and of course I live it as well, so I know the real deal. There's some funny shit that happens so my plan is to bring this madness to the masses.
"'Mamaluke TV''s inaugural episode features my interview with hardcore legend Scott Vogel (vocals) of TERROR taken from this past year's 'Firestorm Fest' tour. The next few episodes will feature interviews with Maurizo (vocals) of KATAKLYSM, James (vocals) of ORIGIN, John (vocals) of WARBRINGER and Karl of EARTH CRISIS.
"Listen, I'm a mamaluke, you're a mamaluke. This is an interactive show for everyone to be a part of. We're going to update you with who we plan on interviewing over the next few months with hopes of you sending in some questions for us to ask. If you have an idea: send them, you have a question: send them to our MySpace page. I've been touring over eight years and I've become very close with lots of people in the scene. Let me know who you want me to interview or what you think can make the show better. I hope you enjoy the first episode and it only gets crazier from here."
SWORN ENEMY's latest CD, "Maniacal", was produced by Tim Lambesis (AS I LAY DYING) and Joey Z (LIFE OF AGONY). A video for first single, "A Place of Solace", was directed by David Brodsky, who has previously worked with GWAR, SUICIDE SILENCE and STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, among others.
