After the release of “The Sick, Dumb & Happy”, the latest studio album by THE CHARM THE FURY, we talked about it with vocalist Caroline Westendorp. One and a half years later, we recently had the band’s drummer Mathijs Tieken for an interview. We talked about random topics: from music – the band already started to write new material for an upcoming album, to politics – still no master plan to save the world, to women in metal and hair/beard care.
THE CHARM THE FURY’s Mathijs Tieken: “we always [write music] at home… it’s hard on the tour bus”.
Have fun with our chat and also keep an eye out for other interviews and listen to our podcast about TUSKA festival 2018, where this interview with THE CHARM THE FURY took place. You can also read our festival report about the festival, where we discuss the band’s gig.
I especially love the idea of creating a unique sound but also albums of different styles. Because of Caroline‘s unique voice, we will always be able to recognize THE CHARM THE FURY and so there is a chance, the band can make their plan happen. I’m really looking forward to new songs and if you ever have the chance to see the band live, do it – they are a blast on stage!
