EYE AM, the new band featuring former TYPE O NEGATIVE members Kenny Hickey (guitar/vocals) and Johnny Kelly (drums),along with Kirk Windstein (guitar, vocals; CROWBAR, DOWN, KINGDOM OF SORROW) and Todd Strange (CROWBAR, DOWN),has released its debut single, “Dreams Always Die With The Sun”, via Corpse Paint Records.
A music video for the track was recently filmed by Mike Holderbeast at Joy Theater in New Orleans, Louisiana and can be seen below.
“Dreams Always Die With The Sun” was written by Hickey and Windstein and was recorded in February by bassist Roger Lima of LESS THAN JAKE at his studio called The Moathouse in Gainesville, Florida. The track was mixed and mastered by Jay Ruston.
In addition to their work with TYPE O NEGATIVE, Hickey and Kelly had previously collaborated in a band called SEVENTH VOID, which released one full-length album, “Heaven Is Gone”, in 2009, and SILVERTOMB, which issued “Edge Of Existence” in 2019.
Kenny discusses the formation of EYE AM, upcoming releases from TYPE O NEGATIVE, the possibility of a Peter Steele tribute concert and much more in this week’s show.
The second portion of the podcast this week features PUPIL SLICER drummer Josh Andrews.
“Mirrors“, the debut album from the London-based trio, stood out as one of the most exceptional and chaotic metal releases of 2021. With a fearless approach, the band effortlessly embraced a multitude of styles, traversing frenetic mathcore, ominous grind, impassioned hardcore, crushing death metal, and ethereal post-metal. The album housed intense bursts of terror like the 47-second onslaught of “Stabbing Spiders,” as well as sprawling, shoegazing epics like “Collective Unconscious.” PUPIL SLICER exhibited equal prowess in both realms, leaving listeners captivated.
Now, with their sci-fi concept album “Blossom“, the band’s sophomore effort trudges even further into their creative abilities and delivers a pulverizing audio experience of incredible proportions.
In the podcast, Josh discusses the creation of “Blossom“, how the London based trio came together and preparing to take one of the biggest stages in metal.
