Gorethorne Interview 01.072021
MM: Can you tell us about your Band and who's your biggest influences
GT: We are a Blackened Deathcore band from Grand Rapids, Michigan! We have an EP out and a full length album in the works!
A Lot of us started with metal in the late 90's early 2000's Nu-Metal wave, what an amazing time for innovation in the genre!
That opened the door for a much heavier taste. We all progressed to death metal/black metal/deathcore from there.
MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from
GT: A Lot of our inspiration or ideas come from various other bands sounds, life itself, and horror movies/shows *Hint*
MM: What would you say is your Bands favorite song ?
GT: Our favorite off our own EP collectively is "Acid Bath". It just seems a small step above the other songs on the EP.
MM: Plans tour and festival wise for 2021
GT: We do have some shows lined up this year, check the bands FB/IG pages for current info.
MM: What can we expect from GoreThrone live
GT: Expect to pit up and Headbang hard. Our Vocalist is insane and loves to join the crowd and include himself with them.
We're all here to put on an entertaining show, rather than just expect people to listen to the music and stay still.
Invoking movement is the most amazing feeling as a performer.
MM: What do you like best and worst about touring
GT: We have yet to tour, maybe we will be able to answer this in the future. We formed during covid so opportunities like that
have not presented themselves yet.
MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies
Chelsea Grin, Lorna Shore, and Veil of Maya would be SO insane to tour with.
MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why
GT: (Vocalist) My most memorable concert has GOT to be Whitechapel at the Intersection in Grand Rapids. Phil B is one of my IDOLS
MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with the band?
GT: Dropping an EP that you worked really hard on is, in my opinion, quite the accomplishment.
MM: Which are your Two favorite Albums of all time
GT: It would probably be Slipknots Iowa and Veil of Maya Matriarch
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people
GT: (Vocalist) My first time live was under our old band name "Behold the Wicked" at Smiths Downtown in Indiana. My right leg was so shaky I couldnt put weight on it, but I
pretended like I wasn't nervous and put on a show. People were headbanging and really digging it, so that was amazing! No one could tell I was that nervous and no one could tell it
was my first show.
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
GT: I mostly had album posters from albums I would buy but the one band I did have was Korn.
MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person
GT: That would probably be Black Sabbath without them and nobody would have even existed or if it was made gotten this far into it.
MM - What's the most important thing to the band right now?
GT: I would say getting along with each other and becoming good friends. Forming a like minded goal based on all of our visions and Ideas into something we can all work with.
MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
GT: Probably the new Lorna Shore "To the Hellfire" Because it SLAPS SO HARD. But that would be an extremely difficult cover to pull off.
MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band
GT: It's a great mix of a lot of different styles of metal not just one, so if you aren't a fan of this song you might like another because we are all over the place with our playing.
MM: Four words to describe GoreThrone
GT: Heavy, Fast, Melodic, Underestimated.
MM: Final Words for your fans and our readers
GT: If you loved our EP "The Descension", our next album is going to blow you away. Give us a shot, and I promise we will deliver. See us live, Visit our FB/IG, and we even have a Snapchat for behind the scenes jam clips "GoreThroneGR"
