Dave Bate (Michael Crafter)
SPB: What is a hyped band, TV show, or movie that you just can’t get into?
Bate: I can’t get into anything metalcore. The fact that it is so big in this country is actually embarrassing. It is the worst genre of metal ever created. Our band name and some lyrics are obviously a piss take on metalcore, its members and bands.
On a positive note, I reckon there are some amazing bands in Australia from other genres of metal, punk, and hardcore and we have a great scene over all. Check out Ether Rag, Vile Specimen, Christ Crusher, The Kill, Captain Cleanoff, Shackles, Extortion, and Hostile Objects.
