VBS.tv has posted several video interviews featuring Lebanese death metal trio OATH TO VANQUISH. Posted as part of the Practice Space series, VBS producer Eddy Moretti visited the band in Beirut, Lebanon, with a camera crew in tow to explore the band's struggle towards artistic freedom within the turbulent environment of Lebanon and the Middle East.

During discussions with Moretti, guitarist/vocalist Elias van Quish describes without mincing his words the evils of self-serving political factions in his country, the inspiration for his band's lyrics as well as the impetus behind the making of notorious music video for their track "Executive Onslaught", directed by US filmmaker Vince Brusio.
