Carnifex Vocalist Scott Lewis on The MetalSucks Podcast #300
Carnifex vocalist Scott Lewis is the guest on our 300th episode. We discuss the band’s new album World War X, the concept behind the record, the importance of the atmospherics and layers to the album’s sound, the importance of the visual aesthetic in this album’s videos, and how this year’s Summer Slaughter tour has been going and why it’s working so well. We also discuss Scott’s passion for action films, the importance of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, why Tim Burton’s vision is not on that same level, modern day feature film directors choosing to go to television instead of doing more features, and the most important contribution to society we have power over as individuals.
Petar, Brandon and Jozalyn tackle the Tool cycle of news that came out last week including their music’s debut on streaming platforms, Jamey Jasta’s comments about Chvrches, argue about the value of legacy bands versus those that draw more on festival slots.
Songs: Carnifex – “World War X” and “No Light Shall Save Us” (Featuring Alissa White- Gluz)
