Pantheon interview 23/02/2022
MM: "Empire in Ruin" has been out a short while, how pleased are you with the feedback so far from media and fans
Bj: It has been pretty crazy and I admit we were not prepared for this but
We are ready now and very excited to play live shows again soon.
MM:Tell us about the inspirations and ideas behind the album
Bj: Honestly wanting to focus more on the song structure that we
Really enjoy instead of what everyone else is doing and re capture
that moment in time of music we loved growing up and the lyrics have changed
to kinda focus on real horror like serial killers but ideas that we combined
To create our own horror story in a way.
MM: I am a big fan of album artwork and your albums artwork is eye-catching did u have a lot of input into the design
Bj: Arkansas really didn’t have a lot of ways in the 90’s to check out new albums
So album artwork really helped us make buying a album a deal breaker and I love
that thrash style artwork especially Slayer so I gave the artist my thoughts and the cover
came out perfect!
MM: Tell us your plans for tour and festivals
Nothing set in stone yet that I can announce due to waiting on contracts
But we might have a busy year. April 26 we will be playing our hometown Little
