After the amusingly ridiculous interview with would-be hitman hirer Tim Lambesis - in which he blamed his actions on lack of belief in god - former bandmate Nick Hipa (now with Wovenwar) has conducted an interview to speak about the band's demise, the rise of his new group, Christianity, and more in the MetalSucks podcast.

During the hour-plus long interview, Nick Hipa claims that Tim Lambesis’ crime was not completely out of character, stating:

"Any dude in a band … they are very aware of their bandmates’ highs and their lows, the strengths of their characters, and their flaws. You kind of just accept each other for it. I think even to the extent that you’re like, ‘Man, y’know, this dude sucks, but he’s got other things going for him.’ But for us, we started to see the degradation of [Lambesis'] character to [the point where it was] like, ‘There’s nothing really redeeming here. This guy is losing touch. What do we do? This is somebody that we’re involved with on multiple levels.’

"And so we just tried to keep things together as well as we could, and not let any of those things ruin the band and what we had built. But when [Lambesis was arrested], I think we were surprised, [but] we weren’t shocked like everyone else. This came out of the blue for everyone else… we did not expect things to go as far as they did, but [what Lambesis did] wasn’t completely out of character.”

This interview and more of this week’s episode can be streamed in full at MetalSucks.net here.

Wovenwar's self-titled debut is due out August 5th, 2014 and you can check out a song from the release at this location. Lambesis meanwhile has been sentenced to six years of incarceration for attempting to hire an undercover officer to murder his wife.
