Music Therapy with Triggering Trauma

Triggering Trauma is a band that wants to scratch beyond the superficial surface. They dive deep and address issues of abuse and how to overcome the demons that plague our minds. We, at Metal Digest had a massive campaign in December dedicated to mental health and metal music, so we would love to hear more about their approach.

Welcome to Metal Digest

When you write music do you aspire to make your audience feel more tranquil or release some tension and blow some steam maybe? What’s the ideal way to reach catharsis?

When I write, I’m writing to
 #1 Purge my demons so to speak, and
 #2 I write to entice emotion, if that emotion is tranquil or hostile that is completely up to the listener and what the listeners needs are at that moment.

If you could cancel any aspect of modern culture, which would you choose?

At this point I’d say the whole system needs a reboot. Tear it all down and rebuild it.

How did you meet the rest of the band members? Was it a bandmate-ship at first sight?

Ren Marabou and I met through my label, I heard his music and I was wanting to move in another direction musically so we talked about how to move forward without sounding like our other bands and Triggering Trauma was born.

What did you want to be growing up?

\I’ve always wanted to be a vocalist.
There was never anything else I wanted more.

How did you find your calling?

My fucked up life.

Mistakes and detours are normal. Did you face any setbacks?

Sooooooooooooo Many!!!!!!!!!

Do you see yourself still working in the music industry in five years?

I see myself making music until the day I die. Long after I am dead my wife will be publishing new music that I have never released.

This is my passion, it is my therapy.

Until we meet again,
