Imperial Triumphant’s Steve Blanco on The MetalSucks Podcast #448
This week, Imperial Triumphant’s Steve Blanco is our guest! We discuss how he got Kenny G as a guest performer on the band’s new album Spirit of Ecstasy, recently touring the border countries of the Russia/Ukraine conflict, and the film composer that is the biggest inspiration on his band. We also discuss Stanley Kubrick being a perfect example of cinema, his thoughts on modern-day art versus entertainment, how everything they do is somehow tied to New York City, and looking forward to their upcoming tour with Zeal & Ardor.
Petar, Sylvia, and Brandon tackle Scott Ian’s comments about S.O.D. being canceled in modern times, Corey Taylor giving up on changing people’s views, and Mike Patton’s need to step away from lives shows due to his mental health.
