The Halo Effect’s Mikael Stanne on The MetalSucks Podcast #449
This week, The Halo Effect and Dark Tranquility vocalist Mikael Stanne is our guest! We discussed the origins of his new band The Halo Effect, the pandemic’s effect on the process of creating their debut album, musical history with his bandmates, the secretive nature of the project and his excitement to announce his new band. We also discuss fans’ preconceived expectations, naming the band, Stanne’s lyrics, how negative emotions were an integral part of the writing process, and what it was like to perform outside in the freezing rain.
Petar, Jozalyn, and Sylvia dig into the video of Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello getting tackled when a fan rushed the stage, Ivan Moody disowning Five Finger Death Punch’s anti-mask video, and Michael Keene’s latest issues before a Faceless performance.
