Periphery’s Spencer Sotelo on The MetalSucks Podcast #476
This week The MetalSucks Podcast welcomes Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo onto the show! During our chat, we discuss what it’s like to create music after starting their own label, how Periphery V was originally a sequel to Juggernaut: Alpha, and how seeing a band live it can easily make them your new favorite band. Spencer also shares his experience going to EDC every year in Las Vegas, how he feels Slipknot’s Iowa is the most visceral metal record, the video game that was the most influential for him as a writer on the new album, and why planning to make a record less than 70 minutes long never works out for Periphery.
During the rest of the show, Petar and Brandon discuss the passing of Tim Aymar, Fear Factory finally deciding to let everyone know who is replacing Burton C. Bell after a two year wait, Marty Friedman jumping onstage again with Megadeth, and Slash’s feeling on Guns N’Roses being canceled today.
