Two Minutes with Kyzer Soze

Ahead of their spot supporting High On Fire at Brisbane’s Crowbar on February 21, we spend a couple of minutes with Kyzer Soze and find out what’s up…

Describe your music in five words or less.
Death metal.

What’s going on in the world of Kyzer Soze?
Writing new material and playing shows.

What motivates you to make music?
Creating something that makes you feel, we all love music as listeners. The journey you take when you write a song, that gives you chills, it a great feeling. The adrenaline from playing live shows is a very strong drug. You can’t get enough of it.

What have been the high and low points of your musical experiences so far?
Highs would be supporting The Black Dahlia Murder and At The Gates last year; lows would be losing money, but that’s just about every band these days.

What music are you listening to at the moment?
Rivers Of Nihil’s new album Monarchy, Black Crown Initiate, the new Cattle Decapitation, Inferi, The Black Dahlia Murder, Blood Red Throne and always Behemoth.

If you were stranded on a desert island, which member of the band would get eaten first? And why?
Roine, he’s the only one with enough meat on him to make a decent roast.

Here’s an opportunity to bitch about something, whether music related or not. What really pisses you off?
When people say: “The scene is dead maaaaaaaaan.” Fuck off, go to a show and check out some new bands. We have some of the best new bands in the world, so stop being lazy you dickheads.

You’re putting together your perfect gig featuring Australian artists. Who would you get to play and where? Feel free to include acts/DJs/bands/venues that no longer exist.
I would love to see AC/DC play with Portal. Psycroptic can open and it will be at Lang Park. Bring some black metal to the masses.
