An in your face, full of energy performance with electrifying sound.
MM: What do you like best and worst about touring
Although we haven’t done too much touring together in this band, we’ve all been in those scenarios with others...worst probably being sleeping in a van, and full of stank. Best, traveling and playing to new fans across the country.

Sevendust, Bad Wolves, Disturbed

Nine Inch Nails - With Teeth tour, just had an amazing stage set up and light show along with the performance. Was incredible

Everyone really collaborating together on the Lightwork album, and now seeing the response we’ve gotten so far, and such a short amount of time.
MM: Which are your Two favorite Albums of all time
That’s a difficult one to answer. I can’t say that I can narrow it down to just two. Tool Lateralis would be one of them. Pantera Vulgar Display of Power is definitely another. The list is long.
MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people watching you?
Yes, it was amazing, the nervousness, adrenaline and rush all at once, then once overcoming the nervousness, it’s just all excitement. Better the crowd reacts to the band, the better the performance is going to be.
MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.
Well, this one is going to vary for everyone haha...being the drummer, I’d collect posters of my favorite bands or artists using the cymbals or gear I was, so had a Mike Portnoy, Terry Bozzio, and bands like Rage Against the Machine, Nirvana, and Metallica.
MM - Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person.
MM - What's the most important thing to the band right now? Right now, probably the release of our new album and focus 2020 tour plans.
MM:If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?
Hmm, there’s a question we haven’t got yet. Wham/Slayer Careless in the Abyss mashup. Because it’s epic!
