RSR PC 027 Paul (Howling Frequency / Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean)

Paul from crushing doom metal band Chained to the Bottom of the Ocean and killer D.I.Y. style record label Howling Frequency talks to us about our interstate beef! It’s actually pretty much mutual admiration and shared vision so we talk about that and tease about possible collaboration! We talk music in general as usual – what we’re listening to etc.

Paul talks about his general philosophy with bands as monoliths versus individuals, crushing the D.I.Y. packaging game, touring, picking adventurous cover songs and we all go on in different directions, but somehow on this episode we don’t really talk about food (weird!).
