This is my interview with the hugely personable, endearingly humble and fiercely heavy Teren; the magician behind the indomitably heavy symphonic/black/death metal project EXIST IN RUIN. 'Exist In Ruin' EP is not only a masterpiece in metal creation but also the product of one man's honest and determined journey out of the grit and an epic demonstration of how, through investment in one's own musical talents, one can yield a masterpiece production that achieves musical success and acclaim, ticks off a personal bucket-list item, brings musicians and even friends together but, and get this, can also save a marriage! Enjoy the show - come back soon!

Ben Sebastian: https://open.spotify.com/artist/3EyBt...
Ben Sebastian's 'Kalasin' series is a demonstrative outpouring of the extremes of epic symphonic and maniacally progressive metal musicality as in each instalment he unleashes his latest vivid instrumental, filmic, and mind-bending creations pushing each release to its absolute limitation. Each track is a journey in its own right, a navigation through seething sound-sphere seas whose tides seek to push, pull, unite, divide, ameliorate and obliterate the expectations of the listener. As if penned by a quill whose ink is dipped in the well of madness; Ben writes with fight, fervour and fever, yet is untiring in his desire to always be dynamically prolific in his dramatic proliferations. He is also curator of The Sonic Symphonic Podcast; an outlet for unsigned metal artists to get heard along with imaginative real-life story-telling and colourful interviews - all immersed in his philosophical mission to promote and engender musicians to invest in the furtherance of their own unique talents above all else as a mechanism for overcoming, and surpassing, the frailty of personal mental health and the general vicissitudes of life.
