Last week I interviewed Mike Thompson of black metal band, Withered. Describing their sound as "tortured black and doom metal," the band has been making a name for themselves and are hailed by critics as the future of heavy metal.
By far the most intriguing (and slightly disturbing) interview I've ever had, I learned much about the genre, Withered's songwriting process and the craziest tour story you will ever read. Let's just say it involves decapitating pigeons for a performance later that night.
