Amy Sciarretto (Atom Splitter PR, ex-Roadrunner Records) on The MetalSucks Podcast #286
This week we talk to Amy Sciarretto of Atom Spiltter PR. Amy tells us about how she got into the music industry and her time at Roadrunner Records, if clickbait media helps or hurts her artists, the difficulty of doing damage control, the importance of bands having a mystique, if gimmicks are necessary for modern bands to reach a certain stage, how working in the industry has affected her love for music, the difficulty of working an eight hour day, and what her dog Higgins taught her that no human ever has.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn discuss ex-Slipknot percussionist Chris Fehn’s claim that he was a hired hand. Next we address a Canadian listener’s concern that The MetalSucks Podcast doesn’t give his country any love, and we shine a spotlight on some of our favorite Canadian bands.
