Interview with Gorethrone

Today, we sat down with Gorethrone to talk inspiration, writing, heroes, and more in music! Be sure to check out their music on Spotify below after the interview!

Here is the interview:

What is your inspiration to write your music? Is it your surroundings?    
I would say alot of our inspiration comes from just the love of the music, drive and passion to create and put on a good performance. A ton of stuff is being written right now
that is heavily fueled by the scarier things in life hint

What type of music did you listen to growing up?    
I grew up on mostly classic rock as a kid, and then when I got older it was grunge. After that, I found metal. Some of the first metal bands I found were Korn, Slipknot and Mudvayne, and that’s where it all started with me for metal.

Is there someone you looked up as a hero?
My hero would probably be Marc Okabo of Veil of Maya. His lead stuff is crazy, along with his rhythms. Also, he is not just good at playing, but is a good songwriter.

If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing today?
I would probably do something with skateboarding, like making decks or running a skate shop.

What advice do you have for our fans out there that want to create music?
Don’t write music to fit in a specific genre, but just write music you guys like. Also, find people that you get along with. That might sound like a no-brainer, but I’ve been in bands where one person doesn’t fit, and we give up because he was good, so it broke the band up. Calm down and flow/vibe with your band mates.
