Interview with Wormwitch done by Patrick
1.Hello please introduce yourself to the readers?And when did you become interested in playing and writing music?
2.When did you meet the other members of the band and was it long before you all formed Wormwitch?
3.What is the current line up of the band and who would you say are Wormwitch's biggest influences?
4.Strike Mortal Soil is the bands debut full length how long did it take the band to write the music for this release?
5.Who usually takes care of writing the lyrics for the band and what are some subjects you all wrote about on Strike Mortal Soil?
6.Besides the Strike Mortal Soil release does the band have any other releases or merchandise available for the readers?
7.Does Wormwitch play live very often? If yes what have been some of your most memorable shows?
We haven’t played very many shows yet, but that’s rapidly changing. I’d say my favorite show I’ve ever played was recently in Salt Lake City at the Metro Music Hall with our friends in Numenorean. Sound was awesome, venue was awesome, people were awesome, and it was our second show in a row with a really cool band called Possessive from Boise Idaho, who actually have a record coming out fairly soon I think, so keep an eye out.
8.Are their any tours or shows coming up in support of the debut cd?If yes where will the band be playing?
We have a tour coming up with The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Decrepit Birth, Exhumed, and Necrot. Starts in October and covers a large portion of the US and Canada both. More details can be found on our facebook.
9.Besides metal music do you listen to any other genres of underground music?If yes who are some of your favorite bands and artists?
I’m actually quite heavily invested into Dungeon Synth and some of the neo-folk stuff that kind of goes hand in hand with it. Artists like Sequestered Keep, Soltri, Secret Stairways, Thangorodrim, Old Tower, and Wolcensmen. I’d also throw Summoning in there even though it’s technically a metal band, but they have the same effect on me and are quite possibly my favorite band of all time in any genre. Other than that I like some grunge and new/old emo stuff like Adventures, Thursday, Daylight, Empire! Empire!, Jimmy Eat World, etc. and the odd lofi hip-hop mix.
10.When not working on new music or band business what do you like to do in your free time?
There’s very little time where I’m not thinking about or taking part in band activities, and some of that time is spent on another project I can’t talk about yet. But other than that I’m out in the woods with Colby, reading, or playing an RPG on my computer.
11.Other then Wormwitch do you or any of the members currently play in any other bands?If yes please tell the readers a little about them?
Colby has a project called Old Graves that’s sort of on an indefinite hiatus at the moment, but is really awesome. And I have a project that’s still a secret that he will likely be involved in as well.
12.Thank you for taking the time to fill this interview out do you have any final words for the readers?
Thanks for the opportunity! People who know me know I love to talk about myself. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to check us out! You are immensely appreciated!
