1QI:Hank 3, Doomtree, Withdrawal, Lycus

One of our features here at Scene Point Blank is our semi-daily quickie Q&A: One Question Interviews. Follow us at facebook or twitter and we'll post one interview every Monday-Thursday. Well, sometimes we miss a day, but it will be four each week regardless.


After our social media followers get the first word, we'll later post a wrap-up here at the site and archive 'em here. This week check out Q&As with Hank 3, Doomtree, Withdrawal and Lycus.

Hank III

SPB: Who has the best “metal voice” of all time?

Hank: To me Oderus Urungus because of his approach was a bit more unique and different and he is for sure in my top 5 singers of all time....

Sims (Doomtree)

SPB: If you could get any producer you haven’t worked with to provide beats for a song, who would you pick?

Sims: If I could work with anyone I suppose it'd be Kanye West. I think he's one of the most talented composers in the world. His vision for how songs should build, layer, and decay is absolutely incredible. And I feel like he gets the best out of the people he's working with. 

Runners up: Hudson Mohawke, DJ Shadow, DJ Quick

Adam Dyson (Withdrawal)

SPB:How do you choose your album art?

Adam: I've always felt that the artwork and presentation of a record is just as crucial as the music contained on it. It's important because it immediately sets a mood, and the recorded music itself fulfils the pre-conceived feelings you'd get looking at the cover. We're lucky that we have a support group of likeminded artists who are interested in expression through imagery with the same passion that we have for music. Often, I'll bounce ideas off them based on the feel the record gives off, or a central theme of the songs. Or sometimes not. "Faith, Flesh & Blood" was about offering everything about yourself to someone, but with the artwork that we worked with on Give Up (ingivingup.blogspot.ca) we just went for straight up religious smut. He'll be working with us on our new LP. Price isn't an issue; we've lost money making cardstock, silver embossed covers, glow in the dark and invisible ink covers. Anything to be different and interesting. Above all, support look for artwork that is original and evocative.

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?

Jackson: 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.
