Troy Sanders of Mastodon, Gone is Gone, and Killer Be Killed is our guest this week! Celebrating the second release by Killer Be Killed, Reluctant Hero, we discuss Troy’s desire to do a full tour with the band despite it being seen as a side project, having a total of 12 active bands between Killer Be Killed’s four members, and how the writing process is different with all the vocalists he works with in each project. We also talk about how he prefers to write with the energy of people in the same room instead of file sharing, an update on new music from Gone is Gone and Mastodon, and the positive aspect of creating and releasing new music during the pandemic.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia discuss metal musicians’ reactions to Joe Biden becoming the 46th president of the United States, System of a Down releasing new music for a great cause after 15 years, and a German study saying Covid-19 has a “very low” risk of spreading at indoor concerts if certain precautions are taken.
Songs: Killer Be Killed – “Dream Gone Bad” and “Deconstructing Self- Deconstruction”
