Wovenwar

An Interview by: Jason Rybak

 
From Metallica's gig in Antarctica, to the death of Jeff Hanneman, 2013 was quite an eventful year in the world of rock. In a year filled with the good, the bad, and the downright ugly; perhaps the ugliest incident of that year was the arrest of As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis on allegations that the Grammy-nominated singer attempted to hire a hitman to kill his wife.  With the remaining band members dejected and disgusted with their now admittedly guilty former bandmate, the search was on for a new vocalist, and a new beginning.  Enter the mightily talented Oh, Sleeper guitarist/vocalist Shane Blay, and Wovenwar was born.

Shortly before all of the holiday madness, and on the heels of their killer debut effort, I had the chance to catch up with Shane to talk about everything from speeding in cars-to-speaking in tongues.  So grab a cold one, bang it below, and join us for a look inside the mind of one of metal's newest rising stars. (You might even find out what that quote is all about that brought you here in the first place!)

Special thanks to Shane Blay for so graciously giving me his time, and to George Vallee at Street Smart for making it all happen.  For more on Wovenwar visit the band's official website here.
