What band did you discover in 2012 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
Was listening to Trivium in the past, got back to them 'cause ''In Waves'', their latest record, just sounds fuckin amazing. They also build this album by relying more on making good songs than shred-show off, which is a motto we live by as a band also. They havent released anything in 2012 so to speak, but I rediscover 'em in that time nonetheless!

Fundraising sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have made a strong impact on the ability of artists to release music. Do you think this approach is a trend, or will it continue to shape how artists produce their material?
Might be a trend, who knows, but a trend that brings something good to the people and the music, no matter how long it lasts, is always a good thing.
