Vox&Hops

Malcolm Pugh (Inferi & The Artisan Era)

Episode Summary

A conversation about the soundtrack to his youth, how he got into metal, starting out as a bassist, switching to guitar, taking music seriously, finding likeminded musicians, starting The Artisan Era, how the label organically grew, why the tech death scene is so niche, if he is a craft beer enthusiast, his first craft beer experience, an Inferi Craft Beer & a dream tour lineup. This episode was recorded at Brasserie Dieu du Ciel`s Taproom in Montreal, Québec. Through this interview we tasted Brasserie Dieu du Ciel's "Padma Sana" a New World IPA which was fruity, slightly dank & perfectly delicious. It clocked in with a smooth 5.1% ABV.
