Hello, how's life treating ya?
SF: Very well, thanks.
Your new album was picked as album of the
week in our webzine when it came out, you
must be really good, huh?
If you say so, didn’t pick it. Haha.
But I am sure you're getting that kind
of exposure everywhere these days,
Yeah more or less. Things have been really great so far, lets hope it
There's a definite old-school feel to your
music, but it's still quite
modern sounding in a lot of ways. Do you
think that's what we need these
days: old school metal for the modern age?
Definitely. At least that’s what I want to hear, so that’s
what I write.
Do you think that there's a chance that
NWOAHM will influence the metal
world today in the same way that NWOBHM
did in the old days?
SF: I believe it already as started. A
lot of young bands coming up are mentioning ourselves, lamb of god, killswitch engage, and chimaira as influences. That’s really great to see!
In, like, no time you've gone from being
a underrated metal band on Century
Media to being one of the most talked about
bands in metal. Is there a long
road from being talked about a lot to being
SF: It’s always been a long road…
we have been together and touring since 1996 and I don’t see it ending anytime soon. It has been quite a journey so
far and there is still a long way to go.
So what happens now in the Shadows Fall
A few weeks off until we hit the road and tour for the next year or so.
SF: Thanks a lot and see
you on the road!
