After the Burial Interview
After the Burial are living their dream.
Not only are they making a living making music, but they're also touring the world and taking metal to a next level. Combining djent with intricate melodic aspects, they seem to have found their own spot now.
I sat down with Lee (bass) and Justin (rhythm guitar) just before their show at Szene Wien, Vienna.
We did the interview in an empty-office with some fancy couches and mics. I think it's the classiest one we ever did.
Justin and Lee were really laid back, simply humbled by the fact that they are playing in austria, and there is actually a number of people showing up solely for them.
We talked about their new album In Dreams, their approach to songwriting, and soon-to-be Guitar Heroes.

The band is popular for using 8-string-guitars, intricate rhythm-patterns and a ferocious live-show.
