Features One Question Interviews Lycus

One Question Interviews: Lycus

Jackson Heath (Lycus, guitar/vocals)

SPB: You manage to build an impressive atmosphere in your records which also enhances your lyrical themes. What inspires your lyrics?

Heath: Having done politically-tinged lyrics in the past, we nowadays are focusing on looking inward and writing based on personal experiences. There’s something special when you write about depression or tough times you’ve overcome and people connect to it. We all go through rough times, it’s just part of life. When it comes down to it, music is a source of catharsis for us. The lyrics should reflect this as well by channeling the obstacles life throws you and making something beautiful from it. 

In regards for other’s to contact in the doom realm, our buddies in Dispirit, Funerary, Forn, Noothgrush and Brainoil might be into it… Don’t have contact addresses for all of them but they all either have Facebook or Bandcamp pages.
