Dream Gigs, Covid Effects, and Emotional New Music With Eye of the Destroyer
Hello, thank you for joining us today. How are you?
I am fucking fantastic!
Tell us a bit about your new album, what was writing and recording for this album like?
The writing for this album left me feeling very raw and emotional. It opened old wounds and created some new ones. It's hard to face the past head on in such a way and try to put it in perspective without having it cripple you emotionally.
Given the current state of the world, did it poise any issues towards the completion of the album?
No it really didn't. I do all of the writing so have the isolated atmosphere that covid provided kind of helped.
Of course the current state of things isn't ideal, have you started to plan for what comes next once the world starts opening up again?
We haven't. Offers have started to come in in terms of playing live, but as of now we do not have any concrete plans of doing so. We are content with writing and seeing where the world is at after the summer.
Tell us a bit about yourself as a musician, who influences you?
I'm an introverted extrovert. I love to talk music and share my musical opinions but prefer to create it alone in isolation. I am influenced by all types of music, but for Eye of the Destroyer I mainly pull from my darker more nu metal, death metal and hardcore influences.
Who is your biggest bucket list band you've shared the stage with? Who would you love to share the stage with next?
Cannibal Corpse was a big one for me. I would enjoy playing with a Hatebreed or Dying Fetus as well.
What are some of the main themes behind the new album? What story are you trying to convey?
The new album is about introspection. It's about healing and about overcoming traumatic experience. I'm trying to tell the only story I got. My own.
Last but not least, is there any message you would like to share with your fans?
