Spawn of Psychosis is an industrial metal band from Maidstone, Kent. Influenced by a varied range of artists their music is a mix of oldschool, heavy riffs, synthesized drums and samples but with a vocal style more reminiscent of old punk bands. Vocalist SPAWN chats to TBFM’s Mucka Jay…
What was the last album you purchased?
Tremonti – All I was
If your music could be used in an advert on TV, what would you most like it to be advertising?
From a band exposure point of view, it would be good to have one of our tracks help advertise a piece of equipment we use, like a Laney amp, or Chapman guitar.
If you were to do a cover of a song, what would it be and why?
I would love to cover “Runaway Train” by Soul Asylum. It was one of the first music videos I saw on the old MTV and its themes, video concept, and the song itself really stuck with me. Im a big fan of songs that have something very real to say, and are capable of getting a point across without being really preachy.
Dead or alive, which band would you most like to co-headline with?
Metallica, as they are a massive influence for me.
What has been the most memorable moment in your musical career so far?
There have been far more than I ever expected. Getting stuck in the goods lift with our gear at the Islington O2 was funny, well funny for the rest of the guys in the band who were not in the lift. It was made more memorable as we had just played the opening support slot for KMFDM.
If you had the opportunity to change something about the music industry, what would it be?
That all bands, get paid for gigging, regardless of how big they are. I feel that all promotors and venues paying a standard rate to musicians would be a massive step forward. This should go hand in hand with musicians having more support when getting royalties and protecting their interests without having to spend out crazy money in legal costs.
