What singers or bands inspired you growing up?
Portishead, Nine Inch Nails, Orgy and Deadsy
Who are your favorite artists today?
I have so many today, and their styles can range from classical to hardcore drum and bass.
What non-musical things inspire your music?
This question can be loaded. However, emotions and people are non-musical sources of inspiration. What is the human condition? What is the human soul? How does it affect one another? How does it affect me? The propaganda of the new age and the people who blindly follow. Spiritually and the duality of it all. What is real, what others define as real. Because there is more of the same answer by so many, Does it make it real or have we all been deceived to further divide us? I’m not talking about religion, I’m talking about self. How far is it when it becomes selfish or selfless?
Is there a place where you go to get inspired?
Two places that really trigger my inspiration; going out and seeing a live show or going out in the middle of a forest with a tent, hand drum and making a big fire. Sometimes dancing around it helps.
What’s been the greatest achievement of your band?
I’ve had many achievements I’m very proud of, but when you see a class of children that are underfunded, and I’m able to provide art supplies or instruments to them, because our educational system is in the toilet here in Louisiana, that, I think is one of my biggest achievements. The dramatic difference in their confidence and work when having the right tools makes it worth the countless hours and lack of sleep I’ve spent trying to raise money for them through my benefit television show.
Where was the coolest place to play? Where did you enjoy yourselves the most?
So far the first year I played Southern Gothic Fest. It is what really helped me spread the word of Industrial Dubstep; what I’m known for creating. This was the first time I’ve ever played in the goth scene. This was something I’ve always dreamed about when I was a kid, because the city I’m from there is no goth scene.
What are your favorite horror movies?
Hellraiser. The thought of a dimensional being who is into some really kinky dominatrix stuff that has no safe word is really terrifying. haha
What was the scariest night of your life?
The only thing you have to fear is fear itself. The Boat Man and I are friends.
If you could play anywhere in the world, where would it be and who would be your opening band?
I want to play in Ibiza on the beach, on a full moon with Fever Ray and Dead Can Dance. I would have more of a tribal electronic witch set planned out…only meant for that one show.
What are you working on now for future release?
I just finished reworking a track for The Other La, that was originally produced by CJ Pierce of Drowning Pool. It should be out in a couple of months. Now I’m working on my first full-length album that will feature the vocals of Ms Cat Hall.
Final thoughts / Anything you want to tell the listeners?
First I want to thank HorrorAddicts.net for being so kind to me, and I want to thank the people who listen to my work. It does mean the world to me. My love and respect goes out to all of you.
