Blood for the Master
"An End to Nothing" has some of the best "fast-faster!" riffs I've heard in ages. Was that hard to learn? How are guitarist Sammy Duet's hands doing?
Bassist James Harvey: That one is a ripper, isn't it? It wasn't really hard to learn, but it took quite a bit of practice for us to get it tight. Sammy's hands are doing fine.
I definitely feel like you guys have fit into your skin on this album.
Harvey: The band's sound has changed over the years, and it seems like this "skin" is the most comfortable yet.
Falgoust: I would have to agree. Sammy, Zack [Simmons, drummer] and James work together really well on the musical front. The current line-up is very strong and has a solid musical ethic. Those things play a big role in how a band evolve.
What's with the Satan lyrics? Are you worshipping the devil down in New Orleans?
Falgoust: I am by no means a Satanist, but I have a deep interest in the dark arts and literature. I have a strong dislike for organized religion and the oppression it plants in peoples' minds. I also have a great interest in death ― the absolution of it and the numerous cults that follow the concept of death. I like to mix all of these ideas and beliefs and create my personal approach.
