Point Two: THIS TRACK + INTERVIEW are a team effort and appear courtesy of our friends at VISCEREALITY who have been putting on some of the most FUCKING INSANE events from this scene up in the Pacific North West. Their proximity to some local top level players, and their willingness to put up the cash to fly in some of the best dark electronic artists making music today, has put them on my radar, all the way down south in a city I like to call hell’s restroom. Though, I can’t stress this enough to you, the importance of events like these and having an unpretentious showcase for all of these amazing bands, and VISCEREALITY seems to be on a mission to book EVERY FUCKING LAST ONE.

Silver Knight Gothic was an instant classic, what are some of the influencing factors that inspired it? Can you tell me a little bit about recording it as well?
At the time we were listeing to a lot of underground house and UK garage so we wanted to make an underground rave anthem, I went to a god speed you black emperor show and wrapped up that experience w/ into the song as well. In 16th baptist i wanted to show that I could do a tight salem/white ring beat.
Can you tell me about some of your current favorite artists, from NY or elsewhere?
In NY The Bunker techno parties at Public Assembly, light asylum, dj rashad from Chigaco, and shed.
What is it about the aesthetic of modern goth culture and dark electronic music that captures your imagination?
I think it’s cool w/ this scene and w/ internet music a song can be created and the next day all around the world every body in the underground will hear it.
Can you give me an example of a song you consider perfect?
The piano riff in pct plane’s true ruin light body is perfect.
Have you had an experience with the supernatural that you’d be willing to share?
Of course dude, Before I dated an ex-girlfriend her house was haunted and possesing the area, I helped ban an evil spirit and everything went back to normal!
If you could collaborate with any artist living or dead who would it be?
It would be sick to cololaborate w/ Aphex Twin
Can you describe your most emotionally moving moment involving music? Or, the moment of live music that has had the greatest impact on you?
In Las Vegas I experienced the most amazing God Speed You Black Emperor live set, and listening to their Taser Floyd album live from ’99 in france, I had a legit spiritual experience.
Some are saying this is the greatest era to exist as a musician, others say it’s the worst, what has your experience been like?
I dont agree w/ either, every era has had amazing music, so it’s been continuing w/ that, but I’m excited w/ the future of music, and I also believe thst in the 80’s and 90’s an old school ancient spirit gave us jungle and drum and bass, it was so ahead of it’s time, it still is.
Have you ever been to a psychic, would you be willing to share that experience if so?
Do you feel things happen for a reason, do you have an experience that would be evidence of this?
Of course things happen for a reason!
Are you working on any new material, can you tell me about it?
Always working on new stuff! The new material is dark and industrial and darker techno, while still w/ the witch hat on.
Why did you drop the symbols in MASCARA?
When witch house got bigger and bigger the whole symbol thing ever got so wak, so I decided to start fresh w/ the original name [w/o symbols]. It became to hard to find me on the internet!
