#91: Hannes Grossmann of Alkaloid (Ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist)


The MetalSucks Podcast

Drummer Hannes Grossmann of Alkaloid (Ex-Obscura, ex-Necrophagist) guests this week. We talk about the differences between being a session drummer and a band member, how to admit you wrote something that sucks, how playing fast is no excuse for bad songwriting, why he left Obscura and when the Necrophagist record will be coming out.

Chuck and Godless were consumed by SXSW this week but they still found the time to get some discussion topics together. Can Slipknot live forever? They discuss if bands should keep going without original members of the band or if the personnel are too critical to a band’s identity. They also declare a winner for SXSW and it was not a headliner of any showcase, but rather something more special.
