Khemmis Guitarist/Vocalist Phil Pendergast on The MetalSucks Podcast #412
Khemmis co-guitarist and co-vocalist Phil Pendergast is our guest this week! We discuss the band’s new album, Deceiver, the long and difficult process of writing lyrics for it, fighting through a lack of motivation and depression during the pandemic, how Deceiver connects to the band’s breakthrough album, Hunted, the exit of bassist Dan Beiers during the record’s creation, and why they are planning their touring schedule for the next year especially carefully.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn discuss Marilyn Manson joining a prayer circle with Kanye West and Justin Bieber, the possibility of Manson turning to Christianity, Mastodon’s Brent Hinds use of a homophobic slur and the band’s subsequent apology, and Slipknot fans starting a fire in the pit at a show in Arizona.
Thank you to our sponsor, Metal Blade Records, for their continued support!
