70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Interview

Witherfall's Jake Dreyer And Joseph Michael Discuss New EP, "Vintage", Artwork And New Album Plans

There's quite a lot to get excited about in metal today if one looks for more than five minutes. One band which has begun to really make a name for themselves since making their live debut at the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise in 2018 is LA's own, Witherfall. With a wealth of experience under their belts, including tenures with bands like Iced Earth and Sanctuary, Witherfall is a band which takes that pedigree and turns it into a completely different creation, crafting a style of metal which is not only heavy, but elegant and thought provoking.

At their recent acoustic show in Islington, London with Sonata Arctica, I had the pleasure of sitting down with vocalist Joseph Michael and guitarist Jake Dreyer, to talk all about their new EP, "Vintage" (which was released only yesterday,) their latest full length album, "A Prelude To Sorrow," the lush artwork which accompanies every release and the unbelievable story about their first gig among other things. You can watch the interview in full below.
