On Saturday the 10th of September 2016 Metal Meltdown aired a pre-recorded interview with Danny Camilleri of Melbourne, Australia metallers Meshiaak promoting their debut album, “Alliance of Thieves” that many have called “album of the year” for 2016. The interview will air on www.venom-radio.com at 8PM US Pacific.

Topics discussed are the writing processes of the much-anticipated album and the more melodic but still very heavy classic thrash inspired-style of metal Meshiaak brings to the table. Along with the heavy music and riffs, the extremely personal lyrics coming from a place in life Danny “went to” and “came back from” over the last two years are briefly discussed and how this album is very “close to home” for him.

Also discussed is having Jon Dette (Slayer, Anthrax, Iced Earth) on drums, how he came to be a full member of Meshiaak, being in the United States and his touring/recording schedule and the possibility of future planned tours coming in the next few months and more.

Danny Camilleri—Vocals and Guitar
Dean Wells (Teramaze)—Lead Guitar
Nick Walker—Bass
Jon Dette (Anthrax, Slayer, Iced Earth)—Drums
