Interview with War of Abaddon!

Genre(s): Death Metal/Deathcore
Location: Madison, WI 

PSAB: Where does the band name “War of Abaddon” come from?
WOA: Abaddon appears in biblical, Greek, and even in Jehovah’s
mythology. All have different definitions and ideas as to who he was.
But the one thing that seems to be agreed upon in all versions, except
one, was that he was the “destroyer” of said belief and system. That’s
something I firmly believe in. So I guess I feel we are taking on
Abaddon’s war in a sense.
PSAB: Your EP
This Hell Dies With Me is set to release June 21, 2014. How pumped are
you guys for that, and what are your expectations?
WOA: We are extremely excited for
this release. I think we are just as excited for the CD release party
(which is sponsored by Pig Squeals And Breakdowns) as we are for the EP!
But This release has been in the making for more than two years. We
have had many set backs in the process of getting this recording done so
we are ready to finally have this EP out.
Our fans have been so great
and loyal to us. It is a great feeling to finally be able to have music
that they can take with them. As far as expectations are concerned, we
just hope people enjoy it and want to come out to a show after hearing
it.
PSAB: If you could share the stage with any band, which band would that be and why?
WOA: Thats a tough question. There are so many bands that
I would want to play with. We pull influence from so many bands that we
respect and admire. But if I had to pick one band I would have to say
Meshuggah. They are revolutionary in the metal word in my opinion. I
feel it would be an amazing experience to share the stage with them.
It
would be a challenge to see if we could even come close to holding our
own with them. I’m sure we would learn a lot as far as making us (War
Of Abaddon) better performers as well. Plus, I think it would be
interesting to see what how a Meshuggah crowd would take to us, good or
bad.
PSAB: What is the local metal scene like in Madison, WI?
WOA: The metal scene in Madison, WI is awesome. It is
very close knit community here. All the bands are friends who all hang
out with each other. You will see members of almost all the bands at
any given show. The fans are great here as well. Very loyal and
extremely supportive. They help us out a lot with getting our names out
there and with advertising shows. The venues and the people running
them are true music fans so no matter where you play you will have an
awesome time.
PSAB: If you could have any musician featured on one of your tracks, which musician would that be?
WOA: I would love to work with Phil Anselmo from
Pantera or Scott Lewis of Carnifex. Pantera is the band that got me
into metal at the age of 12. Phil got me interested in wanting to do
metal vocals. To have an opportunity to work with him would be a dream
come true for me. Scott Lewis is my favorite vocalist of the newer
class of metal. I’m a huge fan of Carnifex and the style Scott has. I
like how raw he keeps his vocals and is one hell of a performer.
PSAB: Do you have any shout outs to give to your fans, and the readers out there?
WOA: I would like to give a shout out to The Circuit Theory, The Faith
Hills Have Eyes, An Ocean Above Us, Ultrea, The Unnecessary Gunpoint
Lecture, Casket Robbery, Unbibium, Descending The Heavens, Spider
Studios, Dark House Studios, Travis Fletcher, Darwin at The Frequency,
Amanda Longfield, Cory Scheider to name a few.
