Vulgarithm, a solo project combining 90s dance and early 2000s metal, answered some questions for us!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION OF YOUR BANDMATES WHEN YOU MET?
I am the only person in Vulgarithm, but I have to say my first impression of myself was pretty good. Handsome, funny and an all round nice guy.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEMORY PLAYING SHOWS?
It’s been soooooo long since I played a show with any band let alone Vulgarithm, in fact I haven’t played a show yet as Vulgarithm. The way a crowd can respond to your music positively and that feeling that we’re having a good time together, there is nothing quite like it.
WHAT ARTIST WOULD BE YOUR DREAM COLLABORATION?
I’d like to collaborate with either Trent Reznor or Maynard James Keenan. The way they write and layer their music is on another level and to be in the same room whilst they are creating music would be a dream come true.
WHAT SONG ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF AND WHY?
My most recent single “Out My Way” has had the best feedback, it has been played many times and streaming sites and also reviewed positively by other bloggers and magazines. I’m looking forward to when the new EP comes out to see the response to that as well.
WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO GAS STATION ORDER?
Probably slightly different here in the UK, but usually if I’m driving, massive bag of crisps and a Monster Ultra energy drink to keep me alert. If I’m not driving then it’s 4 cans of beer.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR NON-MUSICAL INFLUENCES?
Deadpan and satirical humour has influenced my writing a lot, especially sarcasm. It’s a good way to express disbelief, depression and anger without getting too worked up. Music can be an release of emotion for many people and just laughing at the ridiculous is one way of doing just that.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
Take more risks in music, there are many times where I wish I just got off my arse and pushed my music to more people, especially in this crowded social media age. The more you put yourself in front of people, the more exposure the music gets.
WHAT ARE YOUR GOALS FOR THE YEAR?
Once EP number 3 “Share in the 3rd Degree” is released, I will make a start on my debut album and FINALLY start putting the live show in front of the gathering masses.
