Vox&Hops

Mike Disalvo (Akurion, Coma Cluster Void & Cryptopsy)

Episode Summary

A conversation about the soundtrack of his youth, his path into extreme music, his first concert experiences, his early lyrical process, the progression of his vocals, the Boston Metal & Hardcore scene, if he is a craft beer enthusiast, when he met Cryptopsy, if he imaged he would be in Cryptopsy, learning that Lord Worm left, how he approached taking over, why they simply just didn't write a follow up to NSV, his first/last shows with Cryptopsy, if Akurion will play live after their album is out, how he ended working with Coma Cluster Void & their unique writing process. This interview was recorded at Le Saint-Bock Brasserie Artisanale, one of Montreal`s premier taprooms. Throughout this interview, we drank Le Saint-Bock Brasserie Artisanale's "Samaël" the India Dark Ale au Seigle which was an animal like, malty & decadent treat that clocked in with a 6.9% ABV.
