THE SKULL — the new band featuring original TROUBLE members’ vocalist Eric Wagner and drummer Jeff “Oly” Olson alongside TROUBLE‘s longtime bassist Ron Holzner recently did an interview last month with the Greek magazine MetalPaths. A few excerpts from the interview can be read below.
Metalpaths- What about the new songs? Are they past ideas of yours, which have never been released or did you write those songs all together, from the very beginning?
Jeff- They are all new. What we do is send each other our ideas. We are going to be in Chicago in December and we are going to start combining those ideas and write the songs.
Ron- We are doing things we’ve never done in Trouble. They are all new ideas, fresh and exciting.
Eric- The songs we have so far are great. We are all very excited about this. The whole record is actually written, we just want see if we can actually play it together, see what’s going on. But right now I feel very excited and confident with all we have written.
MetaPaths- Have you been working with Billy Anderson for this one?
Ron- Actually we worked with Billy Anderson on two songs. I was always wanted to work with him and he always wanted to work with us, so we had two songs, ready to record and we wanted to see how they would sound. We are not sure we will do the whole record with Billy Anderson because he is too busy and he is staying in South America for months. We can’t wait for him.
This year Psalm 9 celebrates a thirty year anniversary. Share your thoughts about all those years. Is there something you regret? Are you pleased with all you have achieved?
Eric- No regrets! No remorse! Everything happens for a reason and everything is supposed to be the way it is. I can’t believe thirty years have passed. I really can’t say I could change because even with a little change everything would have been different. We may not be sitting here and doing the interview if something was different. Next year we are planning a tour, where we are going to play the whole Psalm 9 in it, and a new record to celebrate Psalm 9’s thirty- year anniversary. It will be great to stop by in Greece to do a show too.
