Let's start the week (and morning!) off with an interview from Pittsburgh's groovin' hard rock outfit ZOM. It's a rock 'n' roll town with a love for good riffs and great hooks, and ZOM deliver both in spades. I've been crankin' their debut--Nebulos--over the weekend, and can safely say that it is, indeed, worth a listen. With their formula, it's hard to go wrong--particularly when you're packing as much experience as these guys are.
Big thanks to Gero von Dehn for stepping up and knocking our silly questions out of the park. As always, we appreciate endlessly the opportunity to get into the nitty-gritty with bands about what they do and how they do it. Without further ado, read on...and then be sure to give ZOM a well-deserved listen.
Today, we're honored to have the chance to speak with Billy Konkel, guitarist and vocalist for HOT RAM, Atlanta's finest power trio. Their 2018 release, Where Light Goes To Die, remains one of the greatest recommendations the illustrious Fuzzy Cracklins has passed on from his swamp. Beyond that, we recommended it ourselves in our 4/20 deluge o' reviews: "HOT RAM fire on all cylinders with marked consistency...this mix of high energy riffage, pounding drums, and bass with ‘tude on one hand, and psychedelic meanderings on the other, is pretty damn potent." Still holds true.
In what I can only imagine is the spirit of HOT RAM, we Sleepy Villagers are gonna git ourselves outside on this fine Saturday, enjoy some sun, some bbq, and some beers, if luck has it. We hope you're able to do the same, dear reader! In the meantime, enjoy this interview.
We provide thoughtful reviews of music that is heavy, gloomy...and loud enough to wake us from slumber. Written by a highfalutin peasantry.
What are ye
