Fister are the kind of doom metal band who reflect the blackened fucked up magic of the genre. These Saint Louis maniacs understand the pain of existence and there is something almost existentially terrifying about what Fister do. When I saw them in New York City it felt like we were about to die, drowning under crushing waves of sound. I got a chance to sit down with them before the show, shoot the shit and dig into the existential and demented magic of the genre. Catch them now on their West Coast tour with Un!
A review. An interview. Sludge. Doom. A song that may or may not be about having bees in your mouth. This post has everything.
Mothership are one of the most exciting rock and roll bands to come up from the hard rock scene in the last few years. These Ripple music signees have made a name for themselves with heavy touring and a brutal dedication to their genre. This is a band who capture the inherent magic of a world many of us have forgotten and make us want to dive back into the power of rock and roll time and time again. This is a band who could very well end up saving the world.
Mike Scheidt is kind of my hero. By kind of my hero I mean that both my wifi name and password are Yob-centric. Any chance I get to sit down with this great man is an honor and this interview was no exception. Put together at Psycho California I got to have my most in depth interview with Mr. Scheidt in years where he was incredibly honest and gave us a look into some of the darker sides of his reality. As biased as I might be in his favor, I feel like this is one of the better interviews I’ve done in recent years.
