The Metal Insight Podcast #34
Alan Averill and Bones from Dread SovereignSinging songs for Satan
Take one of the oldest hands in the underground – Alan Averill from Primordial. The guy who’s been there through all of it.
One of the scene’s most talented and deep thinking lyricists who’s looking for yet another new outlet. Away from Primordial, he wants to indulge the character led, dramatic and heretical fascinations of yore.
Who does he look for to play guitar? The surprising answer is the hell for leather, dont give damn attitude of a guitarist who came through the punk scene: Bones.
In this episode we hear the story of that coming together – and of how they’ve grown into their new album, ‘For Doom The Bell Tolls’.
Thy Will Be Done!
Eoin, or ‘Bones’ as he’s known recounts for us the story of how he and Alan bonded musically from a diverse set of classic rock and punk influences.
He describes his attitude to guitar as one being like where he goes on conversations with his axe and plays the average gig like a train wreck. He’s got quite the gift of the gab.
For his part, Alan reflects on what it was like stepping out onstage with a bass at their first gigs (“it was shit”); being in a band with younger guys playing to much smaller audiences than his day job; and how ultimately its just a part of his willpower that needs sated.
