About Black Sites

How do get to know someone? You can stalk their socials but if you want to bypass small talk and get to know your favorite bands and artists beyond the surface level, this is the place to be. Sometimes the oddball questions allow you to learn the most interesting things about a person and see the varied, unique, and special qualities of a creative mind. Shall we?

Welcome to Metal Digest’s ABOUT. column

Please introduce the band in the most spontaneous way.
Hello! We are Black Sites, and we play heavy metal of a somewhat complex and/or progressive flavor. Merch is available in the back!

What’s something an outsider wouldn’t know about your band?
Birthdays, shoe sizes, favorite colors…a lot of things, actually.

What’s the career highlight you’re most proud of?
Honestly, the new record Untrue is the highlight for me so far. I think these are our best songs yet, and we busted our asses making this album.

Lyrics that stuck with you?
Dig that hole, forget the sun
And when at last the work is done
Don’t sit down, it’s time to dig another one”
(Pink Floyd, “Breathe”)

What’s the phone app you use most?
I try to avoid my phone, other than doing band-related social media stuff.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?
I would love to spend an entire day just noodling on guitar and writing music. On the other hand, sitting on the couch watching “Kickboxer” also sounds pretty good.

Are you more of a “play music to live” or a “live to play music” type of person?
I make great effort to both play music and stay alive.

How would your 10-year-old self-react to what you do now?
He’d say that it’s pretty good, but not as good as Body Count’s “Cop Killer.” And he would be absolutely right about that.

What career advice would you give to young musicians in the rock and metal industry?
If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

If you could do it all over again, would you pursue the same career in music?
I might handle some of the business decisions differently, but as far as the actual musical output, I wouldn’t change a thing.
