Now we’ve got that out of the way, let’s be serious for a moment. We’re as indifferent and desensitised to news of yet-another-band-reunion as the next set of jaded metal bloggers, but the news earlier this year that Raging Speedhorn would be reforming to perform select festival dates (and as it later transpired, a tour too) triggered whatever spark of excitement that still manages to survive deep within our black, cynical hearts. This was one of the band that helped define out youth. This was the British band who bloody well took it to the world stage. This was our band.
So we got on the phone and interrogated John Loughlin, one of the band’s two terrifying vocalists, to get the inside scoop on what brought about this reformation.
