Winds of Plague: Where Are They Now?
Ever wonder what became of the members of that band you really loved when you were fifteen? We know you do! That’s why MetalSucks is now launching a new regular column, “Where Are They Now?”! Enjoy our inaugural edition below!
The Band: Winds of Plague
Who Were They? A Californian deathcore band that was popular circa 2008, thanks to the success of their album Decimate the Weak.
What Went Wrong? In 2009, they released The Great Stone War, an attempt to do something slightly more sophisticated than the moshcore on which they made their name.
Subsequent attempts to get back to their “base sound” failed to land with fans, most of whom had grown up enough to realize WoP weren’t very good.
Where Are They Now?
After he started to dress like Bane for the band’s 2013 release, Resistance, Mr. Plague couldn’t help but notice that he was getting approached more frequently by Batman fans who wanted him to pose for photos than by metal fans. Subsequently, he auditioned for, and got, a job playing the masked villain every day as part of The Dark Knight Spectacular Stun Show at the Six Flags in Los Angeles, CA. He can be seen doing battle with The Caped Crusader every day at noon, 2 pm, 4 pm, 6 pm, and 8 pm.
After Winds of Plague didn’t work out, Eash moved back home to New England, where he became a fish monger like his father and his father’s father before him. He specializes in capturing mackerel and sturgeon.
Nick Piunno is now the founder and CEO of Nick Piunno Real Estate in Upland, CA. We understand that he is very happy with his change of career.
Loathe to give up the touring lifestyle to which he had become acquainted during his tenure in Winds of Plague, Glover sought a new profession which would keep him on the road. He has since found gainful employment as a member of a traveling carnival’s freak show, where he is known as “Mr. Glover, The Human Skeeball!” Doctors have expressed concern about the amount of injury to the head Glover has sustained since taking the job; tragically, Glover can not remember the advice of those medical professionals, on account of the amount of injury he has sustained to his head.
Currently fronting a Destiny Potato cover band, Destiny Potocnik, at Murray’s Motel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV.
