Revealing himself to the mortal eye as only a dark form wielding a vintage SG, he (or it) spits out blistering extreme metal from a dark electronic dark void while maintaining anonymity. Abduction writes and records all music as a solo artist, and he was cool enough to reveal some mysterious secrets of that process. We also dive into the landscape of UK black metal scene, share opinions on theatrical gimmicks in music, how writing on old experimental equipment with limitations boosts creativity, the current state of the world, unconventional inspirations, and much more. Keep your ear out for new Abduction music in the near future. While we patiently await, YOU can check out all of his killer music here: https://abduction616.bandcamp.com https://goatprayerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/cyclopean-thunderbolt https://www.facebook.…

it is a great honor to welcome such an insightfully deranged & brilliant individual, whose meatsuit is conditioned to respond to the name, Erick Godsey. He crashed in on Episode 2 of the Death Comes Lifting Podcast. He is a psychology wizard and a mad man of all sorts. We dove deep into the abyss of the psyche of not only me personally, but of all my fellow freaks in general. Exploring why we like the fucked up shit that we like… and why misfits even exist in the first place. if you were looking for a light-hearted conversation to sip your sparkling mineral water to, look elsewhere. This is full of chainsaws, blood, childhood trauma, and all kinds of mental therapy. It was a real pleasure. I hope you enjoy it. Big love energy.
