One-on-One with ‘Dirge Within’ Guitarist Shaun Glass
Dirge Within will release their second album, There Will Be Blood, via Rocket Science Ventures on April 10th, 2012. I enjoyed their first release, Force Fed Lies, as well as the follow-up EP, Absolution. By the way, the title track on that EP absolutely slams.
I’ve listened to There Will Be Blood. To say it’s a better album than Force Fed Lies isn’t doing either album justice. The truth of the matter is There Will Be Blood expands upon the foundation laid by its predecessor.
I don’t know about you, but nowadays, I’m immune to album descriptors such as “punishing” and “brutal.” Gathering around the synonym campfire to describe a record in such terms is nothing more than overly simplistic and quite honestly, embarrassing for this genre of music I’ve loved for many years. There Will Be Blood is a quality release that will be enjoyed by fans of their debut, and its diversity will definitely win them a broader audience.
I’ve always said Shaun Glass is an open book. Our discussions are always fun, interesting, and laid back. Whether or not you like his music, he’s worthy of your respect. Shaun Glass bleeds Dirge Within. Morning, noon, and night, 24/7, he’s about this band. That’s no joke and not something I’m writing for the sake of this article. If everyone approached music and their bands like he approaches Dirge Within, the music business would be a much more honest, better place.
