One Question Interviews: Samothrace

Bryan Spinks (Samothrace, vocalist/guitarist)

SPB: How did you get so bloody heavy?

Spinks: I suppose it is a culmination of some different things. Obviously the riffs have to be solid. Tone is a huge factor, too. I, as many guitarists do, have spent the past 20+ years searching for the proper tone from my amps and cabs. It took a long time and a lot of trial and error to finally find the warmth I needed when I was a younger musician. Having us all dialed into a proper and "heavy" tone is crucial. Life itself is another part of creating what you'd consider the heavy. It has been hard and heavy times for me and some of my band mates in one way or another since long before Samothrace even came together. I write riffs and lyrics that reflect that. Promote hope and something positive thru life's despair because that is something that I do truly know about. Heavy music for heavy times... We've been saying that since day one.
