HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MUSICAL STYLE? HAS YOUR STYLE CHANGED MUCH OVER THE YEARS?
My musical style is a mixture of cyberpunk mixed with heavy and industrial metal with a big dash of death metal in there. Over the years my music has changed alot. Back in the early 2000s I started a punk band called bloodshot we where very cringy but easly passed as a grindcore horror punk band.
WHERE DO YOU FIND YOUR ARTISTIC INSPIRATION?
Basically I look at the world and everyday life and situations that really piss me off. I would just start writing things down and later try to piece them all together later.
WHAT PEOPLE HAVE INFLUENCED YOUR CAREER?
Some of my favorite artists like Marilyn Manson, Ozzy, Korn they are also a big inspiration in my music.
WHAT’S YOUR PROCESS LIKE FOR MAKING MUSIC?
My process is very out of the ordinary. Sometimes I would go many days without sleep and try to put myself in a trance type state of mind and just write down what comes to mind. When it comes to recoding my vocals I will drink a glass of absinthe and meditate for at least an hour before and think of my delivery.
