Scene Point Blank: What are your top five albums that were released in 2007?

A great year for music: Deathspell Omega. PJ Harvey, Centurions Ghost, Neurosis, Earth, Omega Massif, Fucked Up, Blood & Time, Drudkh, Ringworm, and of course all things Deathwish/Malfunction.

Scene Point Blank: How will you remember 2007? (In terms of music)

A continuous paddling up a cresting Tsunami.

Scene Point Blank: What kind of impact do you think donation-based releases like Radiohead, Saul Williams, etc? will have on the record industry?

Less of an impact than Torrents, Blogs, Rapidshare, Megaupload, Yousendit, and Sendspace are making.

Scene Point Blank: 2007 saw the decommissioning of two prominent file-sharing groups - Demonoid and Oink. What kind of impact will the increased crackdown on file-sharing have on the record industry? Did it personally have an effect on you?

No as I didn't belong to those sites. I see some of the above in the cross-hairs of legal eyes in 2K8 though.

Scene Point Blank: What can we look forward to from your band in 2008?

Writing, recording, and playing relevant music w/ Converge, Irons, as well as on my own.

Scene Point Blank: What three records are you looking forward to most in 2008?

That would be letting three many too cats out of the bag. Not my style. It's going to be a big year. Thanks for your time.
