Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “Music In The Age Of COVID-19” series, the feature where I discuss the ongoing pandemic with various musicians. This time I have an interview with Kade Storm.
METAL ANARCHY: How have you been holding up during the coronavirus pandemic?
KADE STORM: Unfortunately, I had my own personal issues, which kind of made the pandemic itself a backdrop. Still, I got a Blackened Doom Metal album finished, titled “Ascension,” with Narcoleptica Productions managing a physical CD release for the album.
METAL ANARCHY: Have you been using your downtime to work on new music?
KADE STORM: Yes, though it depends on circumstances and inspiration.
METAL ANARCHY: What was the last show you played or attended before the shutdown?
KADE STORM: I haven’t considered doing live work with this solo project. Also, due to a host of reasons, I haven’t managed to attend any live shows in recent years.
METAL ANARCHY: Are you planning to play any livestream concerts during this time?
KADE STORM: Not as of the current state of this project.
METAL ANARCHY: Do you think the live entertainment industry will ever recover?
KADE STORM: I don’t see why it wouldn’t. At least in terms of Rock, Metal and Extreme Metal, creators and fans always find a way to adapt and keep the central process going.
METAL ANARCHY: Lastly, is there anything fans can do to help your band or others that may be struggling during this time?
KADE STORM: Thanks. If they’re into heavy, atmospheric music of the Doom or Black Metal variety, give my latest release, “Ascension,” a listen. All of it can be accessed via the links below. Goes without saying, but when it comes to Metal, the fans bring a distinct type of commitment, so, keep that support going.
