Metal Anarchy’s New Music Showcase: Exclusive Q&A With The Deathtones

Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with The Deathtones.

METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:

THE DEATHTONES: We are The Deathtones, a 5 piece horror rock nuclear bomb. We cover everything that pertains to horror including movies, tv, video games, literature, real life atrocities and serial killers and such. Nothing is off the table. We love to talk about the darker side of humanity and it seems that people enjoy hearing about it. The more macabre the better. We have Mr. Grim on the drums, Killer Pat and Dorian Mordrake on guitar, Mikey Murder on bass and Billy Bones on lead vocals and keys.

METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?

THE DEATHTONES: We have a veritable smorgasbord of bands/artists that influenced us, but to name a few: Iron Maiden, Sabaton, Misfits, The Other, Calabrese, Danzig, Motörhead.

METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?

THE DEATHTONES: Our latest release is a holiday album called “Horrordays”. Though not indicative of our normal fare, it’s a decent niche album to play while setting up for and enjoying the holidays. If you want the real Deathtones experience, I’d suggest going with our EP’s American Monster, Boomsticks and Bloodshed, or Hail To The King.

METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?

THE DEATHTONES: Expect some of the most kickass rock and metal you’ve ever seen. Including lights, special effects, set pieces, anything to set us apart from the sea of other horror bands trying to make it.

METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?

THE DEATHTONES: To be honest, I couldn’t tell you for sure. There’s a lot we want from this band in the next five years. We want to be touring in the US and UK, write and release more material, and just make as many friends as we can along the way. We want to be the future of the horror rock scene. We want “The Deathtones” to be said in the same breath as “Misfits”. A lofty goal for sure, but nothing worthwhile is ever easy.
