Zach, Jeremiah, and Seth were interviewed for this huge Bandcamp piece!
BC: What was the most exciting part for you as the hashtag started taking off?
Jeremiah: Seeing other people tweet about being excited to get an album from a relative stranger. There was already a small metal community on Twitter, and I kept seeing everybody pull together around this idea of making somebody else smile. It was just seeing everybody feel good about doing something cool. There’s the stigma with metal that everything needs to be dark and brooding and angry all the time, but even before this happened, we’d built a community of good people who try to help each other. So to see that cement around doing something cool for each other has just been huge. For me personally, it’s been a light in the darkness—a candle that was lit when things were pretty dark.
