Most readers who are familiar with his work, are likely well aware of a piece in Entertainment Weekly released during the time George W. Bush was still in office in which Stephen King, when asked who was the scariest man in America, was quoted as saying, “probably Jack Ketchum”. No small praise, though well earned, it is without a doubt one of the highest compliments anyone could receive in his field. In 2011 he earned The World Horror Convention Grand Master Award for outstanding contribution to the horror genre.

You got to love people who are always willing to offer their time to simply do an interview. John DeServio is certainly one of those, proving he is not only one of the hardest working men in the music industry today with his work in Black Label Society as bassist(he also co-produced the latest BLS album Order of the Black), and in his own band Cycle of Pain, but that he is also one of the nicest people in the business. With BLS hitting the US with their latest tour I recently caught up with him on what their fans can look forward to in the months to come as well as the latest on Cycle of Pain.

Q: Can you tell us a little about yourself?
A writer from a very young age Kathe Koja has been delighting readers since her novel The Cipher (released in 1991) won the Bram Stoker Award and the Locus Award.

Reader’s of the site might recognize the band Bad Suns as Blackout 101.The band comprised of Chris Bowman on vocals and guitar, Skylar Leon on guitar, Gavin Bennett on bass and vocals, and Miles Kottak on drums is without a doubt one of the most determined and hard working young bands out there. It is admirable to see people at such a young age, put all they’ve got into doing what they love. With a drive to never stop bringing the music the way it ought to be, I had to sit down with Chris to catch up on how things are going since the name change and where they would like to see it all go next.
