Introduction: First of all apologies to Lanz and the band for the delay in posting this. I had a Christmas holiday break and so everything is delayed. I am very happy to present you with an interview with a band from Cililin, West Java called PARADISE CORPSE. I watched BLOODGUSH headline at a countryside show in Cililin on 27 February 2011 and they have some crazy teenage metal fans there. RESPECT!!!]
