Mutilated Tyrant: a conversation about the Navajo black metal scene

In-depth interview with the band Mutilated Tyrant, hailing from Ganado, Arizona (US). Mutilated Tyrant’s members have their roots in the Navajo or Dineh. As a backlash from the NRK TV documentary from Thomas Selzer about living and playing music on a reservation, the festival decided to invite the band for a performance in the Rockefeller. We are curious about what inspires a band like that, with roots in the Indian reservation
