Hey Keith. How are you doing? 

Great very excited to be talking to you.

You launched an EP entitled “Systematic Global Poisoning.” How do you feel about the release? 

I am way beyond excited with the way that it came out it has exceeded my expectations and so far the general reviews of it have been positive.

How much of a challenge was to work on the EP? 

The only challenge that I found was finding the right musicians. After that everything fell into place.

Systematic Global Poisoning

What is your opinion about the current metal scene? 

It has changed a lot over the years. I try to get out and see as many local shows as possible and support those trying to make the scene grow.

Can you tell me something about your influences? 

I grew up with the MTV era of music with all the 80’s hair bands as well as the thrash and speed metal bands from that time and then later on I got into the death and black bands from the early to mid-90’s and still continue to listen to those bands today, which was a big contributor to why this ep sounds the way it does.

What are you listening to these days? 

80’s Metal, Funk ,and Jazz.

Your 5 favorite records of all the time? 

1.Death – Spiritual Healing 2.Carcass – Heartwork   3.Carcass –  Necroticism – Descanting the Insalubrious 4.Dissection – Storm of the Lights Bane 5.At the Gates – Slaughter of the Soul.

Can you tell me a little bit more about the gear you use to record “Systematic Global Poisoning”? 

I used Ibanez guitars and basses as well as my Peavey 6505+ head with Mesa cabs and my signature Sinister guitar picks as well as a Yamaha custom drum kit.

Besides the release of the EP, are there any other plans for the future? 

To release a video for one of the songs and to also continue to promote our EP and get started on a full length to be released for next year and to start getting out on the road and playing shows.

Any words for the potential new fans?
