Clients and all right no woman's right on man you are torn currently wood nails in toxic holocaust how what's so what's it been like torn with nails so far I mean he did. But of the East Coast tourism to started off right it's crazy. Noses noses and awesome man they've kind of it's taken us under their wing Todd Jones specifically has has been watching out for us as abandon you know. Helped me out personally you know male abandoned. Really solidify that bottom puts us. By taking us on this tour and they're big banner now that's your opinion are world there there is there one of the biggest name underground metal and there weren't a few bands and they get they kind of started in how hard core world stunt played in a bunch hardcore fans before carry on terror plots of whom he had. But they've successfully. Kind of crossed over and they're just alleged metal band now. Absolutely and you know there headlining you know all over the USA do probably I'm sure are extremely well overseas. And you guys to get to bump up by being able to open for nails that's that's very awesome what kind of stuff guy he went to death metal kind of stuff got a window into heavy music growing up instead of god and to honk. And all that stuff when I was young pitchers skateboarding. Great he gave videos there yeah around could mean at a cousin I was older than me and he was in the skateboarding. So I kind of you know. Followed what he did I thought he was cool say and I wanted to listen to whatever he was listening to him he played in a punk band so. Adolescent kind of goes hand and the end skate videos I mean. Does is here escape videos oh yeah misled youth he had he had had like slayer songs are 196 on looser. I'm misfits songs or whatever on there and so that was my introduction a lot of that stuff from there got ended more. Probably you know I'm going to be thirty attended this tour so when I was in high school that was when there's a lot like Jerry Hammond I entirely in black Dahlia murder and stuff like that the metal core yeah so that was like you know the early two thousands and that stuff was coming out so that was kind of my. Entry point into that sort of world and then. You know learning what bands they're influenced by. Buchanan diving down into the into the more classic death metal stuff and just there's a lot to him to dig deep tension in that world so sure that's why I ended up. Nice well you know now he touched on and I got to ask you we've actually debated this on the show before. We all know that there's slayer anthrax may guess Metallica that's the big four of thrash. If we're talking big four of metal core two thousands of little cork. What do we seem we got like when you kill switch engaged on earth. You know as a lay dying.

Ten games and just hitting good steak speed it's its own while still common things that these tumors or we're doing is really open that I think that. As far as relapse they're kind of making not that they ever went away but they're kind of making more of a comeback as far as going back to you where they started continuously. Does not focus for a while I was a lot of you know. Then macedon. And in the end it's kind of like that. I think that Dave. Put us in a position to kind of bringing in new wave in the signing a bunch of awesome man to remain a contender economy is awesome fast so there. We know we need to be part of that kind of new generation of relapse that's it's really awesome because I grew up listening to realize stands for the record we knew really well it turned out. Exactly how we wanted it to sowed the fact that people like Kim and the fact that. McCoy is still getting a little bit of attention even though usually metal or from Hampshire most music you can. He put it out and then maybe you get a little bit of attention for a couple more uncertainty.
