MM: Can you tell us about your Band and whos your biggest influences

 

We’re a heavy metal band born of thrash and doom that has is trying to make its mark with our own blend of mayhem. Influences range from Neurosis, High on Fire, Sepultura and Sabbath 

 

 

MM: Where do you draw your inspirations and ideas from 

 

Our own personal experiences in life and things that hold value to one’s self. Also the power of the riff is most important, needs to be heavy but needs to groove

MM: What would you say is your Bands favourite song ?

 

Red Plains, it’s an energetic fast past riff that dances off the fretboard while the drums take you on a ride as the bass cements you in for a time of your life

 

MM: Plans tour and festival wise for  2021

 

A few festivals are in place one being 

 

Ripplefest but we’ll see how the general public responds to events again and see where we can take it

 

MM: What can we expect from you guys live

 

A hailstorm of riffs and an unrelenting chaos of groove and in your face vocals. Once it starts it doesn’t stop, like an uncontrollable freight train

 

MM: What do you like best and worst about touring

 

The people and fans and the lack of Whataburger in every state

 

MM: Which three Bands would be your ultimate touring buddies

 

High on Fire, Stonecutters and Destoyer of Light. All three are great buds and would all slay the stage

 

 

MM: What's the most memorable concert you've been to (other than your own) and why 

 

The main support for Behemoth was amazing, also the first time at Maryland Doomfest will be a memorable one

 

MM: What do you feel has been your biggest accomplishment so far with 

 

Me and my friends starting a band and putting out vinyl, that alone is my favorite thing in the world 

 

MM: Which are your Two favourite Albums of all time

 

Death’s Human and Pantera’s Vulgar Display of Power

 

 

MM: Can you remember the first time you ever played live and how it felt to have people watching you?

 

It was nerve racking as hell. I showed up to an open mic with just my guitar and sat in with the house band. Had no idea what the hell was goin on, but I was getting on that stage somehow 

 

MM: Growing up which Bands posters did you have on your bedroom wall.

 

A glow in the dark White Zombie that I still have

 

MM: Who do you think influenced the world of Metal / Rock more than any other person

 

Dimebag for sure, I’m from Texas and lived off the Home videos and Metallica’s Cliff’m All

 

MM : What's the most important thing to the band right now?

 

Just have fun and stop worrying. We’re pretty much a machine now and focus on what we want as music and our own ideas on how things should sound

 

MM: If you could do a cover of any song which one would it be and why?

 

There’s so many, but we did do a cover of Who Was In My Room Last Night because it’s by one of the best TX bands to ever come out of this state 

 

MM: Tell us why we should buy and listen to your Band

 

We’re a style of metal and music that you’ve loved since you were a kid. No fake gimmicks or nonsense, all the fat has been cut and it just lean true heavy metal

 

MM: Four words to describe your Band

 

Just Heavy Fucking Metal
