I had by no means heard something so terrifying and darkish and evil. It was a revelation. I needed to make the sound that was popping out of the audio system. I did not know what it was, or the right way to do it. However they have been the band that made me wish to smoke weed, fuck ladies, get snowblind and get drunk. And play the darkest, heaviest, most excessive stuff that I might get my arms on.”
