Sam: How were the festivals with
Billy: "awesome, great time, we fuckin love
Metallica, watched them play the whole show, opened up with Breadfan,
went into Master Of Puppets, fuckin blew our minds...and we actually
came up onstage and sang Creeping Death.
Sam: The DIE! DIE! part right?
Sam: Yeah I heard about that...umm..about the
new album...how did the recording process go?
Billy: You had all these questions worked out
(Editor feels like an ass)
Sam: haha, nah, I was even...I didn't...I was gonna go to the show
last night, but...
Billy: that's cool...the recording process was
cool, it was the first time..I think we spent alot of time working
on the record, we were more honest with ourselves this time, I think
in the past, sometime you think you write a song, it's good..this
time around if there was something lyrically or musically that we
didn't dig, if somebody in the band was like "I don't get it" or we
played it and it was good, but it just didn't make it..for lack of
a better word, if it didn't make our dicks hard, we would throw it
out...and we also had a chance to play the songs live.
Sam: Is there anyone in the band who has total
veto power over the songs if they don't like a certain part?
Sam: You just all agree on it?
Billy: "It's not really a democracy, it's kinda
like we all play in a band and the music comes from all of us, and
if somebody doesn't dig something, then we pretty much honor that
and respect it. We all have this like...then you'd see one member
onstage that was like..couldn't get into it.
Sam: What are your touring plans after this?
Billy: After this we go out with ICP and Coal
Chamber, the rest of the summer, July, Aug..
Sam: That's gonna be a weird bill
Billy: It's cool, I think it's diverse, we're
playing in Lowell Aug 20th...and our webpage
has all the fuckin dates, as we get 'um, as we
book 'um..hopefully back to Sept again, we want stay on tour."
Sam: You guys have any songs left over that are
gonna come out as european b-sides on singles?
Billy: "Yup, we did a bunch of covers, we did a
Black Sabbath song..a John Lennon song"
Sam: Which Sabbath song?
Billy: "Hand Of Doom"
Sam: That's gonna be messed up..is it gonna be
