DROID vocalist James "Buddy" Eason spoke to Ruin magazine earlier in the year about the Long Beach, California band's debut album on Emotional Syphon Recordings, James "Munky" Shaffer of KORN's new record label.

"I always heard Chino Moreno's scream from '7 Words' in our song 'Vengeance Is Mine'," Eason exclaimed about his band's collaboration with the iconic DEFTONES frontman. "I couldn't believe it when he was there. It was game time, man. Just get in there, wrap the mic chord around your hand and rock this shit together. The second it happened I was like, 'Oh shit, it's happening.' I couldn't even believe it. It was like, 'Wow, I just did a song with Chino.' I love and respect his vocals so much. Dude, even if I didn't know who he was, I knew I wanted that guy to sing with me one time in my life. I pictured it. I would talk shit to him, and he'd talk shit back to me, and the whole song he delivered that scream. The contrast between the both of us is just sick. I love it!"

The Long Beach quintet, rounded out by guitarists Bruce Child and Jamie Teissere, bassist Duke (ex-DEADLIGHTS) and drummer Nick McWells, blends the syncopated, bludgeoning rhythm and riff assault of LAMB OF GOD with guttural HATEBREED-style screams for a volatile blend of metal. "We're aiming for a groove," Eason explained. "I'm a fan of real shred masters, but also bands with more of a groove like MASTODON. We're trying to fit our own little groove in there and stand out without having to copy everybody else. You don't really have to shred to be metal these days. You can shred with a groove too, and that's what we're going for."
