Bands founder Bassist Alex Webster didn’t join the new full-length records because of Covid Restrictions and recorded bass lines at home. He talked about Erik Rutan and new album “I think the most noticeable difference on this record will be the addition of Erik to the band. He wrote three full songs for the record, music and lyrics, and his songwriting and guitar playing have added something new, and I think his musical style integrated into ours very well.”

“He’s a great friend of ours, so on a personal level, he’s been a perfect fit, as we knew he would be. Beyond that, he’s one of the hardest working people I know, in music or otherwise, and he maintains high energy, positive demeanour in challenging situations where other people might go in a negative direction. This energy and great attitude rub off on the rest of us as well. That’s really a perfect situation to have when you add someone to a band or any kind of team: someone who’s great at what they do, and also inspires the people around them.”

He also added some information about the sound and songs;

“It really follows the path we’ve been going down for a few years now. I think we approach the writing in a similar way almost every time: each of us tries to write the heaviest, most memorable songs we can. We want each song to have its own identifiable character. Showing my age, I like to say you can ‘drop the needle’ on any point of one of our albums and quickly tell which song you’re listening to.”
