One Question Interviews: Northless

Erik (Northless)

SPB: How did you first get involved with (or meet) Halo of Flies? 

Erik: I first met Cory from Halo Of Flies Records in about the year 2000. At the time, he was playing guitar in a local deathgrind band called Leval Blessing. I was a huge fan, and went to a lot of their shows. Eventually, Leval Blessing disbanded, and they formed the band which eventually became Protestant. I played bass in that band for a few years; Cory played guitar and sang. 

A few years later, I started a grindcore band called Half Gorilla, and Cory released a couple 7-inches of ours early on in the label’s existence. A few years later yet, and another new band of mine (Northless) worked with Cory on numerous releases, starting in 2008 and up to and including our latest record, Last Bastion Of Cowardice, released in late 2017.

It was an honor and privilege to work with Cory. Halo Of Flies consistently released incredible music, and Cory’s role in furthering the reach of all my bands cannot be overstated. He made it possible for us to get our music out there in a big way. The time, resources, and energy he spent are basically incalculable. That man has a seriously inspiring work ethic and resolve worthy of praise beyond whatever words I can supply. The cessation of his label will leave a large void in the music community, and the world will be worse off for not having HOF around. Truly a bummer. RIP
